I am loving these 4 inch 30 minute stitched pieces.
It is now an automatic process and I don't think about what I am doing.
I have learnt that you don't have to have perfect stitching. Most of the girls in the group, tear/rip their fabrics and it has taken me a while to not snip off the frayed edges.
I have also learnt that it doesn't matter if the colours and shades don't match or go together.
It is a challenge to have only a small sandwich bag of scraps and to choose what is in them.
7 days of fabric from the swap with Michele, Ohio USA.
There were some interesting fabrics in her bag.
Bright prints with a tied piece of sari silk and french knots.
Sheer, satin and a piece of stitched patchwork off cut.
Curtain fabric with a piece of bright cotton that took my eye.
Batik with course curtain sampler and threads.
Autumn toning of silk, hessian and curtain fabric with wool.
Blues, I was reading a book on Van Gough,
the colours reminded me of his painting Starry Starry Night.
Black and white prints with a piece of wool that was tied together in the bag.
The next 7 days will be fabric from Angie of Phoenix, Arizona.
