    Before and After

    Saw this on a friend's blog who mentioned she couldn't find the artist so if anyone knows, please let me know. This is how I feel about finding OU after the broken pieces of R.

    I don't always agree with her politics, but find some of her work also fits into my "libertarian/conservative" perspective

      annekepoot I couldn't agree more! I was just thinking of posting a thank you thread to Admin for starting this wonderful community. I'm seeing posts about people designing after thinking about it for a long time, starting a blog after meaning to for a while, etc. The recent unpleasantness has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for many IMHO.

        I confess to still struggling to find my feet after leaving the other site. I wasn't very active there, but appreciated the pattern resource and miss the one group/teacher I followed. I'll add my appreciation to Our Unraveled for creating a place where we all can gather.

          I agree with you about the pattern resources - I loved adding to my Favorites. But if I were to be realistic, I was never going to make 99.9% of those anyway. I think we'll eventually have something similar here on OU but for me, I have plenty of patterns in my cupboard, and my library has a shelf full of knitting and crochet books. Plus, the internet is a huge resource of free patterns. I think it was more the idea of having it all in one place, and seeing other people's projects of that pattern and the comments that were helpful. As we grow, I'm sure that will happen here.

          I also agree about pattern resources. I always checked to see if anyone made a particular pattern in the yarn I chose and then I read everyone’s notes for tips and advice.

        Your broken pottery artwork and the idea of making something beautiful out of something broken reminded me of something my sister-in-law shared with me. She told me about Kintsugi which is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer resin mixed with gold dust. The breaks and repairs are treated as part of the object's history and while the repairs are visible they add beauty to the object. I find this to be such a beautiful practice and mindset.
