I have decided not to be a masochist. I am not going to finish the border.
I don't like the look of this thread against the green hanky, although it is very pretty on its own. It is interesting to me that I have known all along that I was not going to like the finished piece; I found it too busy and there was too much colour, but I ignored the obvious and kept plugging, getting more and more frustrated and annoyed.
Rats quit running in the maze when they find no cheese at the other end; only humans keep runningthe same futile route over and over and over again!
Krystle said a while back - this is meant to be fun. If I am not enjoying it, why do I have to finish something I am not going to be pleased with? Why can't I change my mind about a project or just decide I will not continue, for no other reason except that I said so?
Ah, the endless struggles of a control freak and a perfectionist. At least this is easier and less expensive than the stained glass work I did in the past. Harder indeed to justify a change of heart when there are hundreds of dollars at stake!
There is already a new border in the works in another pattern, in a thread that is the same colour as the cloth. End of rant.
Back to the coasters: the second set.
