I MAKE IT UP AS I GO,
I MAKE IT UP AS I GO.
DOES IT LOOK LIKE I'VE GOT EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL?
I've got a stash busting desk to share today!
I got these fabrics out a while back and they've been sitting on my desk for the past two weeks....my sewing machine had a layer of dust on it too (well, why should it be different from all the other furniture in my house?!) But I kicked my butt into gear and got going....
I'm exploring the dark side of the stitch selection wheel :-) Just to add a little subtle detail....
But I've come to the conclusion that I'm rubbish at doing this - it bain't be nat'ral, I tell 'ee! Some folk (Twiglet, Wipso, Kyla) just have the knack of throwing odds and ends together and making something special. It just seems that I try too hard....it's the same with crocheting or knitting with tag ends of wool. I really do not find it satisfying - it's not that I plan my projects either....ideas usually hit me round the back of my head. Inspiration/Mojo is an odd thing, isn't it? Thank goodness we're all different :-)
Take this, for example - a prezzy from a friend:
the prettiest little lavender bag...I know that I will never make anything like this. I have no patience, simple as that!! The very thought of paper piecing makes my eye twitch ;-)
I have had more success with the crazy, sparkly, tinsel yarn this week...no beards were harmed in the making of the following:
Owl bodies, eyes, beak and claws...all ready to stuff n' sew. But would you believe that out of all the black buttons I possess, there are no pairs? So I have to go and buy some...drat! But OCD LLJ just couldn't put mismatched eyes on, it just wouldn't be right! Does that mean I have to go to the wool shop? Awwww. what a shame......... ;-)
Have a great week everyone!
