I feel like I'm so far behind with everything.
But today I was editing and filing photos, I've added an album of textures to my face book site.
These images are of an antique Pakistani hat from my collection. I know very little about it… except that I really like the intricacy of the embroidery.
I have quite a collection now… I need to work out how to display them. Any Ideas
I'm coming to terms with the 4.00 am start and it's working well right now. I need a break in the middle of the day and then I can keep going. I do other projects after 10.30 am…
I've not worked out how long it's going to take to finish… I don't want to put too much pressure on myself, but progress is good right now. I'm sure my body will adapt in time to the early morning start. (I hope)
Having completed four nine foot test pieces in the past, I have decided to change some of my methods now that the quilt is going to be in one piece. There will be different applique and more quilting.
I hit a snag today, I wasted almost an hour trying to figure out pieces that I had put onto fusible web.
With fusible web, I'm working back to front and with the incredibly intricate pieces I was doing today… I got lost….it was frustrating.
So, with the intricate appliques, I need to draw each piece on fusible, decide on the color and assemble it straight away.
In the past 4 days, (24 hours) I have made and assembled 236 applique pieces.
Yes, I do count each piece, and I know how many bobbins of the thread I use and how many needles I use…. when I change a needle.. but it's hard to work out the fabric…so to heck with that….
