For generations the women in my family have produced beautiful cross stitch samplers, but the talent has not passed on to me. I find it difficult to stick to the pattern, and tend to go a bit off road. I did wonder, had I lived two hundred years ago, would the mess on the reverse side of Starflower 3, have meant I could never marry?
Louise suggested that many religions use pattern as a form of meditation, which I tried to do but my head was a bit over cluttered this week, it being fashion week and all. To my delight I realised I am not trying to imitate God by being perfect. I enjoyed the red and white and learned that I need to practice symmetry, and through that, I could learn about music, astronomy, cosmology and natural forms, and untangling my thread.
