Done . . . . Is Beautiful

There are so many judgements out in the world as to what is right, what is true, what is beautiful.  And those of us who are Makers frequently grapple with questions of whether what we’ve done is Art or Craft, good or bad, mediocre or stellar.  I submit that it doesn’t matter what we call it (whatever “it” is); what matters is that we have made something never before made, something unrepeatable.

And, as my friend Larkin Van Horn has said many times in classes she teaches: “Done is beautiful.”  Case in point . . . .

Last time, I showed you the first three of the Grape Crush series of kitchen towels.  Here are the rest.  Ready to be hand-hemmed, then washed, dried and ironed.  Done.  Beautiful.

And that’s the lot.  Something new begins tomorrow.
