I did manage to finish my initial landscape mini-quilt. For a first attempt - not too bad. I then sketched (poorly) a second one and immediately went to work on it. While the sketching and related activities (tracing, patterning, etc) were not so hot, the idea is finally beginning to work through on the quilt. I'll keep you posted. I am still working on mastering "couching" with various threads and yarns.
We'll see whether it finishes itself or puts itself on the 'forget-about-it' shelf. Do you have one of those shelves? You know, it doesn't quite deserve the scrap bin, but neither does it deserve any more of your attention. Interesting how we have trouble throwing something we make away - we just put it away for the day when we pull it out and think "oh, it's not as bad as I remember it being." What does your 'forget-about-it' shelf have on it?
I think I am about caught up on 'blog reading'. Lot's happened during my hiatus from daily reading. I tried to go back and get caught up but I'm afraid I may have to go forward at this point. I'm getting behind in my own postings.
Did I show you these pillow covers I made for my daughter in San Diego? If so, skip the photo below.
I had to make sure she knew this was NOT a symetrical design - she can't stand it when things are not orderly or aligned correctly. I thought I would be okay if she picked out the fabric and knew up front it was not symetrical so she wouldn't be expecting perfect alignment. Anyway, she really liked them.
I have to go take the crib out of my studio. I need the space. My 'new baby' (sewing machine) takes more room than the one it is replacing. I'll post a photo when I get the studio back in order.
Hugs to all - Marie
