But , I have just learned a new lesson as I experimented with the next row of stitching. I had been completing one row of stitching , clipping all the threads and then going back to the top where I had sewed down before. BUT???????????? What if I started sewing down one direction and then up from the opposite direction-going up and down -INSTEAD - of down and down and down. ????? Well I experimented and it Helped tremendously with those puckers at the end of the rows! YEA!
I have discovered that the world of sewing has to offer an never ending list of projects to do and lessons to learn. I am very grateful to be allowed to share with you , my friends -AND - even more to see what path you go on and share with me your creativity.Instead of just one person searching for her way - we all combine to become a force to be reckoned with .
It seems to be a funny thought to me that we all search and look for the perfect project with which to practice our creativity or tell someone how much we love them - sometimes the search seems to be the hardest part of the experience -BUT- if you look around your world at all the things made of fabric that we use every day of our lives - it is amazing that it is everywhere! So, talk about live and learn - I think that is something that we all do every day of our lives.
And yes , there are those projects that literally drive us to distraction - but even them -I believe are a good thing because they cause us to Push the limits of our world as we endeavor to create beautiful and - or - useful things. I know I am a terrible seamstress - but my desire is to tell the person I make something for that I do sew each stitch with love .
