Yes, it was a gamble & who knew I had a 1 in a billion chance to win $20 000 000 or so? I bought the ticket & the hand stitched affirmation says it all: in it to win it! Obviously I didn’t win anything, but why waste the ticket? I accepted my loss & used the paper for this sketch.
Tomorrow I may be tying up loose threads. Until then, see more of hand stitched paper pieces here.
