A Spiral Path
Most things I stitch are about a part of me, or my deep thoughts. When the Spiral theme was selected, I was thinking of a spiral as being our path in life. Each patch being a step. We learn as we go and as our knowledge expands, so does the spiral. The stars in the background depict eternity. There are little silver lined crystal beads sewn along the path. I have a friend that absolutely loved John Denver. Though I am not a fan, my friend repeated to me once a line from one of his songs that has always stuck with me. "Some Days Are Diamonds". So I have taken that phrase and over the years a good day is a Diamond.
I have given some thought about how I could have achieved the piece my brain envisioned. I thank this group for encouraging me to think more creatively. Experience is the best teacher and I just might try this theme again.
Have a Diamond Day!
