SUNDAY SNEAK PEEK AND STILL CRAZEE
Here's a "sneak peek" at my newest project--I've been making little nine patches--two sets at a time and now have 13 positive/negative sets.
I am using Barb's method and I am loving it--Can you guess what I will be making?? (No fair telling Barb--as you already are in the know ;-)). I have begun to sew a lot more slowly and to measure twice and cut once (hopefully!!).
Here's the latest "Crazee"--As you can see--I removed her headdress--it was TOO BIG! I haven't as yet figured out how to make her face stand out a bit more--but for all intents and purposes, I have finished with Miss Tristesse for now:
Here are some shots of the Slow Saturday evening stitching I did while my DH was out playing a gig...
A few thousand (!) French Knots in variegated Caron thread;
And here I created a leafy bower to surround her and I just love that thread color--DMC 830--it goes with just about anything!
A scattering of fallen flowers...and for now, I am out of ideas....
I always seem to need to add something more on the right of these blocks--will be pondering this some more--but thinking right now that when I butt them together those areas will yield more embellishing opportunities...we'll see...
I am now going to laze about and read, do a crossword puzzle and I'll leave you with what kept me busy yesterday--a surprise--
Look who came to play with us--Willa and Fiona--what a fun time.
They just love my deck of "Charlie Brown" playing cards--who knew???
