If you think about it, failed projects are still very useful. We (hopefully!) learn from what we did wrong, and if the mistake is tossed aside in exasperation, with a bit of thought it can be used for something else down the line as we all know.
Yesterday I spotted my attempt at a needle felted picture from ages ago. I had made a prefelt in an off white and then started to build the picture on top. I obviously got part way and thought this is not for me. So yesterday I pulled away the coloured sky etc, blended a few colours, and threw a few silks on. Today it is going to be chopped up, and lots of lovely stitching later - more cards !
My sari silk arrived from India the other day, and I don't know if this is normal, but it came in a little lightweight calico bag that was actually hand sewn closed! I thought this was so sweet, far better than a boring envelope, and yes I will soak the stamps off and re-use the bag !!
