Laugh a little....

Here's a good one that goes along with yesterday's post and several other blog posts I've done in the past...

Perfect!

Enthusiasm and perseverance ..   I've got those......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yesterday I was playing with  my gauzy square and trying to get a pretty piece of FME (free motion embroidery) out of it.
It's much easier to stitch on than my cheesecloth for sure ... and look how it gathers it up between the stitching... tiny puckers and lovely areas ... I added some bits of tulle type lace and some edges of trim here and there to see what each looked like..... just a fun time of playing....

Sheer beauty! Great quote. I need to borrow that put it on a plaque and hang it in my studio. :) You've got me chuckling after reading the post below. So today's quote is understandably appropriate. Hugs

I really enjoyed your enthusiasm, especially after your ordeal yesterday. I often sew on paper, but not fabric. You have done a fantastic job of compensating. And I love the free motion work, too. I can't drop my feed dogs, so I have no way to do it. I'm in total awe.

Happy Friday Smiles.

Good quote - shall remember it when I'm just about ready to do a big "X" across a painting I've been toiling with :D)

Abi said...

So pretty!
I need to earn the art of not losing enthusiasm when I make mistakes. Especially when I make the same mistake three times in a row...

Sorry it's taken me all weekend to come around.
