Very clever.  I especially like the way you incorporated metal.  (The rune wheel bit is sort of brilliant, too.)

Occasionally, in any field, you get a bad professor.  I would suggest taking classes from another professor if there are any available.  If you still do less well than you'd rather, perhaps you should consider changing your major then.

Honestly, I like the piece.  I agree with what a few people have pointed out and agree they maybe didn't like all the negative space in the corner.

While critique is always useful, comments about how you don't belong in your major are less than professional.  I would listen to the comments that you can actually can apply to your work and avoid taking classes from people like that if at all possible.  I think you'll find most professors will be willing to help you if they aren't pleased with your work.

I also think that in any arty sort of field, criticism can be more emotionally difficult because the things we make are so much a part of ourselves.  I do think it gets easier over time, however, and you can learn to look at your work in a more detached fashion.

I say give it a bit longer.  The problem is, with anything you study you might encounter a professor who does not do his or her job correctly and changing your field of study might not mean you avoid that problem.  On the other hand, if you took textiles classes from people who were helpful and gave you sound advice and useful criticism, I think you might find it very rewarding in the end.

Your piece is creative and interesting.  You seem comfortable with different stitches and things and it seems competently done.  The colours and textures are yummy.  I'm pretty sure you don't suck at it. Smiley  You might just have to change things a wee bit here and there to please your professor, sometimes.

I have a few rather business like skirts with a thin piece of black lace at the hem.  It's playful and flirty, but subtle enough that I can wear it with a blazer and heels and still get away with it.

That's so awesome.  I'm jealous now.

Those are awesome bloomers and I love all the little ruffles.

I especially like the first one.  They're lovely, dark, dainty little things.

Lovely, lacy, whispy little skirt.  I like the blue with the white and cream and how its almost bustley in the back.
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / other photography options on: April 06, 2009 12:08:27 PM
I was wondering if anyone could advise me about photographing things.  People seem to either use some sort of light box thing or natural sunlight from what I've read.  I'm not sure either's a horribly viable option for me.

I have limited space (Pretty much room to put a tiny little folding end table in).  I also don't think natural light is a reasonable option because the hours in which I can work are rather constrained most of the time and the weather has a tendency to vary horribly.

I was wondering if there were any other ways this issue could be addressed and what other people do about it.

That's a gorgeous pattern and you chose wonderful colours to stitch it in.  May I ask what stitch you used on the pink centres of the flowers?

Those are adorable, but I think I, too, am super jealous of the pirate one.  I love the pretty, girly little flower and the wee, dainty skull.
