DESIGN WALL MONDAY - 9/5/11
Remember when I said I took a hand-applique class way back when??
The one where the little German lady said to me –
“Oh, you are left-handed! I cannot help you.”
Well – that UFO was/is at Stage 7 – Floral Applique -
And I should have worked on it last month –
But I didn’t.
I got side-tracked by who knows what – good intentions and all that - doesn’t matter now.
Anyway - when Judy picked #11 for this month –
I got to thinking – (Yeah – there I go again – headache time! ;))
Because my Stage 11 stuff is -
Stage 11. Prepped - Pre-washed - Pressed - Ready to Cut - etc.
And Stage 10 is –
Stage 10. Cut and Needs to be Pieced - Not Started Yet - etc.
All I really have to do this month is CUT SOMETHING to get it up to Stage 10!!
I can do THAT!!
And then – I can work on the other one – right??
It’s partially done –
It’s BEEN partially done since 1997 –
I’ve been kinda working on it – on and off – mostly off – for FOURTEEN years –
Maybe it’s TIME!!
What do you think?
Of course – I could leave it for another six years to make it an even twenty. ;))
(Inside joke for those of you who have been following BOB lately.)
I haven’t worked on it much since I showed you this rose last month –
But – here’s the bird’s nest -
I really like the fabric I found for the speckled eggs -
This a REALLY BIG project for me –
LOTS of hand-work -
LOTS of little fiddly pieces –
VERY time-consuming -
But I can’t let it overwhelm me –
I just have to bust it down and do one part at a time –
After I decide which part - ;))
Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew –
