So, craft mirrors life.
I had an idea, a dream (see previous post). I tried, adjusted, tried, adjusted, compromised. The fabric resisted my attempts at change. It had different properties (more polyester and a crisper handle) than I had originally thought.
Its always difficult to know when to keep trying, and when to accept something for what it is, and change the plan.
So I didn't end up with a pretty summer frock.
But I did get a very nice apron.
