I guess to most people it's quite clear I like patterns. A simple polkadot or a more elaborate interweaving pattern I can love it all. Creating a pattern is not that difficult, it's as simple as a repetition of shapes. But the challenge lies in making it look good! About a year ago I tried making a damask pattern. I guess I thought it wouldn't be so difficult as I had been making various patterns. But I was wrong. I couldn't get the look and feel I wanted, the shapes didn't match up nicely and well I just didn't like what I was making. So I left it alone and let it gather dust on my hard drive (and threw out my pencil sketches). But I'm too stubborn to just let go. I gave it a half try here and there but half tries usually don't work out so well. Last week I decided to ignore all the plans for the day and pick up where I left off. Which wasn't a good idea either. So I started from scratch and WOW! I like what I made!
