Boo on them, I say!!!
I love trying out something new. Particularly when it comes to knitting or embroidering or spinning or sewing. Or ....... you can fill in the fiber-y blank!
Actually, there is so much in the world I want to learn ... it is truly a problem. I keep saying .... that I need to narrow my focus!
But obviously self-restraint is difficult for me.
When I go shopping in a yarn shop, quilt store, fabric store .... there is stuff every where shouting, "Try me!! Try me! I look like fun!!"
Yea, there are squirrels in every corner of those quilt shops. ;)
So I was in a quilt shop last spring and I found a pattern. Applique, hand-embroidery, scrap-busting tea towels. It easily had me. One quick glance and it was in my hands!
And finally today .... I started it. Grabbed some scraps ..... learned some applique stitches on my sewing machine ....played with two-sided fusibles.
It's not done yet. I still have some applique to do .... and I haven't started the embroidery yet.
I am certain there will be more of these to come.
What do you think???
