Why is it that when it is right - even if it is not perfect or the way you would like it to be, not mastered nor honed, nor in any way remarkable, you KNOW that the thing is done, that it is the best you can do, for now? What is that place called? What is it that satisfies and informs you that it will not get any better soon, and that you should be pleased with the progress of the moment? That is the place, whatever its name, to which I have finally arrived. I have finished the 9th TAT exercise.
You will have to take my word for it, but I think it is okay. Whew. All that high drama. I needed to stab myself into completion of what is actually not a very difficult piece. It is surprisingly simple, I think, but not for dyslexic moi.
It was such a relief to have it done and my hand is a lot better. though still feeling a bit bruised. It lookes just fine, however. Thank you all for your commiserations and best wishes!
After the difficulties, this piece, which is one of Iris Niebach's freebies from her website that I saw on Liyarra's blog, was surprisingly simple! Usually I have a great deal of difficulty with her patterns. So far so good! I wanted to check out the variegated thread with the pink for the mystery Bonnie.... I do not think they work at all, but I like this pattern very much!
Lastly, WHAT FUN! Got home from work today to find all these goodies in my mailbox! Needless to say, I had to test out that shuttle ASAP - I love it! It seems a bit bulky compared to the Clovers, but the heft of it feels amazingly wonderful!
That little purple bit - yum colour - is the beginning of a Mary Konior cross for a friend that is about to have major surgery. I think it will be nice with a few of the teal beads, strategically placed; not too many of them.
The HDT's are 'oops' à la the good Doctor, and Yarnplayer's new Stardate.
Oh, lucky me!Anon,
