...something this week, here is what I have been working on.
But I have to say, it is just not right. I wanted a very soft and 'pretty' feel. I added that ribbon (blue /yellow) in the top left, and then I felt I had to add stronger elements to counter that, and well, it has all gone a bit haywire. The flower daimante brooch thingy (on the left, and the buttons are not actually on the block yet, I was just playing with placement. I like the pieceing, the curves and texture the tatting bring...but embellishment...blah! Anyway, not happy! Inspiration is lacking at the moment. I am completely enamoured with this quilt, but I could NEVER pull something like this off.
edited to add: This is one of an , as yet, undetermined number of blocks.
All my babes are at school now, and while the part-time work cuts into my time to create, I must still do it. It's like oxygen.
I'm still a Crazy Quilter at heart, but enjoy experimenting with new ideas and mediums.
I'm always ready to learn, and always willing to teach.
