My answer: That happens in art! That is the fun of the creative process. You start with an idea. Your piece has been created in your mind. You have a picture of it there. To me the creative process is already done! The question is: Do you want to copy/reproduce that idea exactly?
I always start with an idea. My art work, even my quilts, never turn out the way I imagined them at the beginning. My mind image is a starting point. An idea is alive and grows. I have learned to go with the flow as I begin to create physically, with my fabrics and paint and thread.

So don't worry about what your work has become. Enjoy the creative process as it evolves and embrace your final product! It is beautiful!!
