OK, I'll admit it, the title; "The path never taken", I made up myself. It was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw it. This is a wonderful piece, delicate and with moment. I just have to show you the detail of the stitching. Amazing.
Thank you Emily, and remember, "A stitch in time saves nine".
That part I didn't make up. It means a little effort expended sooner to fix a small problem prevents it from becoming a larger problem requiring more effort to fix later. But now we have a larger problem that is we all want to see more of Emily's Mail Art.
No rest for the wicket! (I think this could be a Cricket saying, but works for stitching as well.)
