Sew - Rip - Repeat -

I told myself that I would use the the blue placemats for "practice" pieces and that I wouldn't get too stressed at the lack of finesse in my attempts at FMQ - and that I would stitch them up and then leave them "as is" and not rip anything out -

Well - I lied - ;))

I found a really cool stencil by JD Stencils in my stash -

And after numerous attempts to get the tension right and to fix skipped stitches -

Sew - Rip - Repeat -

Seemed to be the order of the day - ;))

When everything seemed to be adjusted properly -

I marked and stitched a couple of placemats -

And while this part didn't look too bad -

This is simply awful - and a sorry excuse for a "heart" -

I KNOW that I can do better than that!! -

So I will continue with the "Ripping" part and try again tomorrow - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. One instructor mentioned that some days it just didn't seem to work - so she did something else on those days. it sounds like you had one of those days with the hearts.

    1. Guess you could say that - LOL - and today I DID decide to do something else - haven't decided about tomorrow - yet - ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
