You’ll never guess what’s back on the ‘ol stretcher bars. Well, maybe you will…
If you guessed Illuminata, you’d be correct. Why bring the behemoth into the light again?
Maybe it’s the enthusiasm that always seems to spring anew when I move back into my studio for the warm half of the year.
Or maybe it’s that the silly thing is nearly half finished, and it bugs me that it’s been floating in limbo since (yikes!) 2008. I kid you not: that’s the last time I made any changes to the design files. Oh my.
Or maybe it’s because I miss stitching. I have to admit even with arthritis, stitching in small doses, is still enjoyable and satisfying.
Or maybe (and this is no small thing), I know many of you haven’t given up hope, and are still are waiting for it, …and I really hate disappointing people.
I guess it’s a combination of all of the above.
So, while progress may be glacially slow, please know that I haven’t consigned the beast to oblivion.
