Tapestry Design – sometimes you have to take the hint…

Designing is a funny old business!  In recent weeks, I’ve been working on an idea that I  thought was genius so I worked hard to get it looking just right and then I began stitching.  After several false starts, it began to look the way I wanted it to and you’d think it would be plain sailing from there.  However, I couldn’t make up my mind about colours and you have to knuckle down and stitch a good bit to see how the colours work together.  But I was getting up to all sorts of mischief – playing patience on the ipad, checking out Twitter and Facebook, studying the tv guide…
Finally, I took the hint.  If I was finding that design boring – so would others! It has been abandoned and I have started on something new and exciting that has got me stitching late into the night again, with little clue as to what I have been “watching” on tv.  Phew!
