So sat and stitched them into 4's, practising getting the points to match up, thinking the fabric was all but free so no loss if I screwed it all up.
Practise makes perfect and all that.
Well, no one was more surprised when my points did match up with the exception of two that I unpicked and did right!
Inspired by my success lol
I then stitched them together thinking I could make a shopping bag/tote with them.
Then I thought, the 4 square blocks, well they could be blocks for more circles!
And since I have a great many selvedges stitched together - one thing led to another -
So, thus far! A bit in your face for a shopping bag right lol
but even so, it qualifies for my 365 Circles : )
Someone on the Facebook Splendid Sampler group page asked if that ruched effect technique that I had used for a circle,
might work in a heart shape.
Well I didn't know if it would, so tried it and although I don't much care for a heart done this way,
having not paid much attention to the hearts shape,
it does indeed work!
Now, am going to trial a ruched square and hexi and .... well it could give rise to small geometrical shape ruched something or other!
Perhaps the next 'IT' thing for the whoever, with everything!
I watch all the rumpus going on over here about the forth coming UK referendum on whether we remain in the EU or leave it.
Then I see all the theatricals going on in the US around Trump and Clinton and wonder what on earth is happening to humanity.
Such starvation, poverty and devastation in half the world, phenomenal mass exoduses, racial and cultural hatred rising now
in all corners of our world.
I find it worrying frankly.
However, over here some folks call a 'trump'
a fart ............
somehow, that kind of puts things into perspective for me !
