Having leapt...


Libby and Karen, thanks for your suggestions on the "Leap" thing.

While you were posting them, I was stitching away, making net....and I'd already gone too far to even think about your suggestion, Karen, I'm afraid. But I really like the scraggly edges. Even more net-like, and far less stitching. If I'd thought about that beforehand, I could have made the "and the net" box rough, with torn-net-like edges.
Oh well.
This satisfied THAT urge to experiment with this idea.

  1. I like it the way it is, very graphic. But then you're good at that sort of thing.

    It's a great life philosophy too...

  2. I think your piece is marvelous. You did a very good job. All that quilting! What a great image.
    I'd never heard the expression "Leap and the net will appear." I like it and think I will incorporate it into my life.

  7. Great design and execution! I hadn't heard the saying before but its nice to have my life philosophy summed up in a neater phrase than my way of explaining it which has always been: sometimes you just have to hold your nose and jump (into the deep end of the pool)
