Today my mission is to find a pattern for a Mariner's Star.
Tomorrow in Patchwork Class I am getting a lesson in Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper.
I'm quite excited about it as it's something I've never tried before.
There's a couple of ladies doing this in the class right now it looks complicated, but interesting. It's a technique used to get perfect points in complicated patterns.
So... Pinterest here I come! And when I find the pattern I want to use, I shall get it enlarged at Warehouse Stationary, ready for class tomorrow.
I've found a couple I like already:
And I may even use one of them yet.
edit: TOOK a lot of stuff off here from yesterday and today.
From now on I will be using PEPSI again to vent.
I got on the treadmill. It wasn't for long, or very fast. But I got on it!
I have been reading blogs for 2 hours. It makes me sad to see so many bloggers who I've been following for years give up blogging. It's like losing a friend. Sorta.
Cos cyber-land is fickle like that. One minute you are like really good friends ... then NOTHING. I try to not let it hurt.
I think that's why I don't pull the plug on my blog, cos it might upset a few people?
Sometimes it's tempting though.
DEE: Thanks for that, off to have a look-see.
So, I've found a very simple star pattern, and will tinker with it once I start it I think. The basic star is a start eh?
So now I'm off to get it upsized a bit. Back later.
Got it upsized, got Freezer Paper, ready for tomorrow.
Another day where I seriously want to stop blogging. What's the point? My Mum says that all the time ...
Well... I've worked out what fabrics to use for the Mariner's Star tomorrow.
And I've just put a vegetable quiche in the oven for dinner. It's one way to get veges into the family!
Sadly lacking in energy, motivation, enthusiasm for anything right now. New low I suppose.
Been some tears tonight, and some decisions almost made that would have been hard to fix.
But, Stew and I talked and are united finally on how to deal with certain issues.
Feeling really tearful, but will be OK by the time I sleep on it, and let my feelings settle down.
End of Day: a bit of a shit day actually... but I suppose we all have them.
