Hello friends! Last week I took this wip out and managed to make few stitches while taking care of puppies. Hmmm, I like this a lot!
I mean this photo … this looks great in photo but I’m not enough excited. I like much more the back side! And I know why; because there is lots of white … and it looks more scrappy …
This project began in summer and the colours had a meaning. First it was quite grey, then few colours on the grey, then snow white – light, then blue etc.
First I made the blue half and then the purple half. I had many thoughts how to continue. Perhaps a table runner so that blue part is at the other end and the purple part at the other end but like mirror (so that the straight edges make the outside edge).
Now when watching the whole circle I feel that I should have used all the rainbow colours to go around. That would have been ‘me’ but I had decided to stay with ‘less’ colours.
Other good option would have been to use only greys. That would have been beautiful! But now it’s too late. One thing I have learnt is that if something doesn’t feel right, it’s better to make a new plan.
Now I have ripped the parts separate again and I shall continue first with the blue part.
Sometimes I’m lucky and the little triangles that received a while ago, match!
‘Tales of Cloth’ sells lovely packets of paper piecing papers. I saw how much fun sewists had playing with ‘hexagon shape family’ and wanted to join! I was really excited about these but didn’t have time to try them when I received them in summer. Now as the little triangles fit for my diamonds, I think I found new path for my project. New creative path!
I shall try to take creative and improvising path.
Now I’m again very excited to continue! Hmmm just can’t imagine anything in my mind at the moment. You know that I plan usually in my thoughts and I have the picture in my mind. This will be interesting challenge to work with many shapes. If I would plan with pencil and paper I would draw all day long and wouldn’t have any time to sew. New ideas come always even during the process because the project itself as well as the fabrics and colours give me ideas.
This needs to wait now a little bit because I’m thinking to make a quilt for the Christmas (grazy idea, I know, but I try).
Thank you very much for your visit! Nero and Hanna send you big kisses and thank for the lovely comments on their last post!
