When Things Go Wrong
I have always been the kind of person who when things go wrong looks for a solution. This has been particularly valuable in terms of weaving because, quite frankly, things are all too frequently going 'wrong'. When they do, there is no point in gnashing one's teeth and weeping (although a little venting is sometimes required). A few explicatives may be used, but then it's onwards to find a fix that will allow one to carry on.
This is a lesson that is important in life, too. This past week has held its share of 'bad' things but life happens and you just have to get on with it.
Perfection is a journey with lots of lumps and bumps along the way. All we can do is keep on trying. Even though these place mats are a little 'off' in terms of what I intended the end user won't know that. They will just judge the mats on their merits and like them - or not.
