I made a huge mistake when designing my latest pattern, and did not realize it until I had transferred it onto the monks cloth. Fortunately everything is covered by wool when complete, so I can just write over it with impunity (except for embarrassment!). What did I do? I wrote the words without reversing them, so that when you flip it over to the right side, everything was BACKWARDS. I am fairly sure this is a mistake I will only make once, and I’m surprised I even did it this time because I know better. I guess I’m just too excited to start this project. Learn from me. I’ll make many more, but different, mistakes on this journey that I will share and save you the trouble.
Looking for a way to level, center, and artistically write words on a rug, I went to Youtube today and found this video. What a gorgeous shop! It makes me want to jump in the car and move to New Hampshire, which doesn’t sound like a bad idea frankly. I’ve been to New Hampshire, and it’s beautiful!
You will LOVE this video, and maybe absorb some of their enthusiasm for this amazing craft. I am definitely “afflicted with an addiction to wool!” P.S. The “Patsy” is not me!
