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 -

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.
