The importance of making a paper pattern >>>read on

Walking over the paper water pattern of my next wallhanging, I imagine how the colors and shapes will relate to each other. Imagination is an indispensable part of the design, but there comes a time when you have to let go of the desired image in order to give the process a chance. Letting go of control and having confidence that everything will work out. And you know what? All puzzle pieces always come to the right place. Maybe not what I had imagined but I am always surprised that the result is just right.
