Practice Gets You Closer to.....


I believe we learn by practice. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.
-Martha Graham

Learning to become something new requires more than then just passion. It requires  inspiration, ideas, techniques, and most of all practical practice. So while it is thrilling to spend a few hours on Pinterest, and the Internet looking up links to embroidery, it is the actual practice of doing that helps you with bringing your artistic vision to life. I spent the week-end taking a vintage scarf of roses and giving it a whimsical bite so I could convert it to a bench covering. I chose a couple of designs, combined them and printed them out on a water soluble stabilizer. It worked great except for where the ink stained light areas of the thread. Lesson learned.
