Summer is so shorted lived in Minnesota. It is hard to be inside working on the Liturgical Embroidery Designs when the sky is sunny, and the evenings are pleasant. Of course, there is always the dog demanding his share of attention, along with a walk to visit his favorite haunts. So, to feel like something has been accomplished with the distractions of a mid- summer day, tonight was “back to the drawing board,” using the computer, of course to work on more Liturgical Embroidery Designs. This Liturgical embroidery design is where things were left after the previous session.
The biggest drawback when creating Liturgical Embroidery Designs is the failure to take the time needed to learn the computer program.
When one is inspired with a design concept, one wants to work it out design issues, rather than spending time learning a program………but then there is a price to pay for this failure to learn the program. It’s laughingly called the “Stuck” syndrome. It goes something like this: a great thought hits, I try something, it doesn’t work. I need to do something else, and I get stuck. Sometimes, one can wiggle and squiggle and find a way out.
At other times, it is hopeless. There is nothing to be done, except call the household computer wizard and beg him for help (definition: computer wizard equates to teenage son). Thankfully, the wizard is pleasant, and amiable to the concept of being on call to assist a hopelessly lost parent with the challenges of a computer program.
So, after a bit of trial and error, the Fleur Cross design emerged. It is coming along. This hand embroidery design would be suitable for a burse, or if resized, a pall, a pulpit fall or an altar frontal. But……….I think there is still a few more Ecclesiastical Embroidery design ideas needing to be worked though. Until next time.
