I just don't know what to do - on Friday I now have 2 things to blog about - Favourite things Friday, and FMQ Friday. Both are equally good as I get to meet some new people who drop in to see what's going on. So this week it was Favourite things Friday and Squiffy Sewing Saturday. I might live dangerously and do it the other way around next week. Who knows!
So here goes. Last week Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting set us some homework. We had to try some modern Art in the shape of tear drops. Here was my first effort
I had real trouble making my teardrops symmetrical. And going backwards, and filling the spaces and, you may notice, the "necks" of the teardrops vary from a single line of stitches to half an inch. Go sit in the corner with the pointy hat with the D on it, Dianne (D for dunce not Dianne by the way)
Second shot, not so bad
But still not filling the spaces, and still struggling with backwards vision. But I think there is a definite improvement this week. The lines don't wibble and wobble quite as much as they did, and at least the square was squarer this week (apart from the wiggle on the right)
And this is what happens when you take no notice of what the nice lady on the video says about keeping those loose ends out of the way at the beginning.
I'm off now to see how the rest are doing! Good luck everyone with next week's slate pattern.
