Believe it or not, I have been doing some for me sewing. I opened up my Minnie Muu
packet and look what I made! Don't know if I'll do anything with the pattern, I just enjoyed making it. So what the heck, I decided to show it here. It's all Lecien
, but I added some lights for variety.
You might think I was a pretty good piecer being a celebrity stunt quilter and all, but really, it's hard. I think my half square triangles are good and then I come up on this kind of matching...
and it's a crapshoot whether it matches. This kind of matching (two points facing each other) is my kryptonite. I pin and then I baste and then I pull out the threads.. it's an endless process. Sometimes I get lucky and I can make it work. Sometimes, no amount of pinning and basting gives me the results I'm looking for. So, with each project I try and better my skills from cutting to piecing.. and it's worth it. And when I start to feel too frustrated, I just do the best I can, and that keeps me happy while sewing. It's only fun as along as it stays fun, right? If you're not enjoying it, it's time to walk away. For a while anyway.
Today I met up with Alex
about our project list. She's sick poor thing, and just has a few days to kick it before her son's wedding this weekend. Anyway, from across the room we went over our list and made some plans. So it's back to work for me.
Plus as a bonus, Frankie will be home for a few days. School starts up soon and she wants to get in a nice visit chock full of meatloaf and spaghetti dinners while she's here. So the pickin's might be slim around here for a few days. Have a good week!
P.S. Check this
out. It's amazing. I mean OH!MY!GOSH! And this
.. totally cute. How can there be people who don't like fabric?
