I think next time I would use smaller pieces and perhaps sacrifice some of the crystalline effect for less white areas. I mustn't forget also that the chances of me using this as a whole cloth are about 0 so they will be cut up and the colours redistributed. At least they will all have a united theme. They are fascinatingly like a Rorschach test though, I could spend hours looking at them!
And the single colour ones are textured too.
My sewing machine has been in for a service so I have been muddling along on my workshop one. Still a great machine, but not my Bob. Yesterday I phoned them as it had been three weeks and they said it would be 10 days max and I was told that yes it was done, had been sitting there for ages they just hadn't managed to ring me. Great service, not. If only the recognised Bernina dealers weren't so far apart!!
We have been to a couple of Christmas Craft fairs and, because we're doing a little of the Buy British and local thing this year we actually finished our shopping well before December. Mind you I do tend to buy and make gifts through the year so there's not a loony rush at the end but now we have reached December I am a little more happy to start thinking about the whole thing, especially the cooking side of it!
And just because he simply is just so adorable....
Off to to some C&G now and wait the arrival of John and a sewing machine.
