I guess that I, am one trick pony.Try as I might,
I did cross the line, come out of the box, expand my horizon....but I think
that Crochet is still my cup of tea. Maybe it was because I had more than one project going at once...maybe maybe maybe.
So you remember I posted about the spotty hen mini quilt? I'm going to chalk it up to a little me and a little bit pattern kit. That's fair enough isn't it. After all they gave me everything to make up this little stunner. But....being me....I messed up things a bit. I put it aside for a little bit, pondering over what I did, or what I could have done better. Maybe....just maybe I was a little to intense and a little nervous about doing the project, never having had worked with felt, or applique, and then....there is the quilting portion.
I forgot to remind myself this is a journey making the piece is the journey. I should be enjoying and relax and work with the pattern not the clock on the wall.
I ended up undoing everything I had already acomplished, when I noticed that I had entirely missed a piece which "should" have been sewn in. So I reinvented the wheel, worked with some of their fabric, and some of my own.. I bought some darling fabric in Amish country many years ago, and never really did make anything out of it, I thought it would pretty for myproject, and would brighten it up, and add a little more "country" inspiration to the pattern.
It's more my own rendition now, it's hard for meto live up to something somebody else made with their experience & personality to it, and like I do with the crochet, I take some of theirs and some of mine to make a new dfferent one.
No picture just yet...
but here is something I so know how to do 😏
