My niece had her konfirmation 24th of April. In the beginning of March she told me, she Would like to have a curtain with a horse as a gift for the occasion. I really had to push myself to get it done on time.
And of course - when it all was done, and all the aunties was looking at it - i spotted a fault, in the middle of it all. I suppose all of you Can see it, but I didn't before it was to late. I offered to unravel it and do it again, but she didn't want me to. I don't know if I should insist, or let it be.

The horse looks fine to me; I didn't notice the flaw that you mentioned.  I really like the nearly-transparent look to this piece, giving the horse a spiritual or ghostly appearance.  Your niece is happy with it the way it is, so, I wouldn't insist on fixing it.  You could even think of it like the flaw that Persian carpet makers used to intentionally include in their work.

It looks great< And of course when we do things for others it does have to be perfect but like my son said to me, Mom when I was little about 10 or so, he is 26 now said with that little boy face, " Nothing is ever truely perfect but one thing.  Yours and my love for each other and the imperfections are our marks that remind us that no matter who looks at it or see it, it is perfect as you made it with LOVE for me Smiley

Thank you all for your kind words, and for telling me to give up on perfectionism.

If there's a flaw, I don't see it. Maybe I could if I were within a few feet of it and knew to look, but I agree with the others: It's beautiful and made with love; leave it as it is.
