Some things just don't turn out the way you hope...
I have had a commission for some placemats. They have turned out just fine...or they will do when they are finished.
Along with the placemats the customer asked for a couple of centre table mats in blue/red colourways.
Let's face it I have plenty of these colours in my scraps so it should have been pretty straight forward.
It started out well...I was liking the look of the HSTs...
I also was liking the pieces I had added to frame the HSTs...
and I was pretty much in heaven with the little row of dinky sized HSTs...
But then something happened.
I was suddenly not as keen when I had added these rows in.
For some reason that I can't put my finger on it just wasn't working for me.
I am wondering if it was the "make it up as you go along" approach, or the "I really haven't got time for this but I must get it done" pressure or whether it's the buckling on the 4th final side that is annoying me.
Whatever it is, I am not happy.
Not happy that I spent an evening making it only to not feel comfortable including it in the commission.
Not happy that now I have to do the whole process all over again.
Grrr...what to do?
