I have been slow stitching mostly this week; while visiting Mom; and also to relax.....
My Pomegranates are not even--just like REAL FRUITS!! LOL
Or so I'd like to think.
My biggest problem is getting the base big circles precise....; did some research and have sent for Karen Kay Buckleys Circle templates--hopefully they'll make it easier (ask me how i know about burned finger tips!!)
here are my two favorite centers:
I like the lilac-ey colors here against the
deeper maroon....(be kind--I know it's not
even on the sides)...it is what it is.....
I like that gold/yellow batik...
All these are batiks....
I think for me, for now, the most important reason to continue working on these slowly
is to perfect my template ironing and my stitching. It's those outer curves that get ME.
I think of Mom while stitching away quietly and slowly.....
I hope she will be able to see them made into little Pom-Pom flowers.....
I am going to hook up with Slow Sunday quilting at Kathy's Quilts. (or try to...)
