(Almost) No Regrets
Have you ever sold or given away something and regretted it? I don't completely regret it -- it went to a good friend who was buying a gift for a good friend of hers -- but I had a real soft spot for this piece. It's so eye-catching, but that's all it's done since its creation. It's caught eye after eye, but no one has wanted to take it home.
I think I got used to having it around.
The pillow covers aren't really practical for me to do; since the embroidery takes so long, I really can't charge for as much time as some of these pieces are worth. But I love to do it, and I would do it anyway, and then I would just have a house covered in random embroidered motifs. So I continue to make them, and then I edge them in whatever coordinating/clashing fabrics feel right to me. They're priced for the time it takes to turn them into pillow covers.
Maybe that's impractical, but I don't really care. Like I said, I'd make them anyway.
And I think I might be making another bird skull sometime soon.
