"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."
More or less finished, anyway. I originally did a poor job centering the "Carnival" motif on its backing, so I tried pulling it off and redoing it. Needless to say, this rendered the adhesive on the coaster components useless, so I tried fixing it with glue. Didn't work. I was able to make it look presentable for the photo, but if I were to pick the coaster up, the cork bottom would fall off. I will have to get another coaster and do it all over. Since the coasters are sold in sets of four, I will also try to redo the "Alladin" one to center it better. Me and my perfectionism. Don't worry, the tatting is undamaged.
In the meantime, I have started the tatting for the next set. I think Diane will like this one.
