MIXED RESULTS

I have had a great couple of days in the studio. I have given myself permission to play and play I did.
I spent a day and a half working on a pieced quilt top with the result of throwing the whole thing in the bin. It was done as a prototype for a magazine project and all I can say is thank goodness I didn't do it. I made so many mistakes I eventually starting laughing at myself. I made errors in fabric choice, cutting , pieceing and anything else I tried to do. Throwing it away made me feel much better.

Today I had better luck and worked on a piece I did a few months ago. I had a great time quilting it and then cutting out the unwanted organza.
Do you think it needs some beads??


I have also been beading some felted & quilted pieces for the exhibition and I think they are coming along quite well. I will show you when they are finished.

What do you mean does it need beads - what sort of a question is that Lisa??? What would Nancy say?

Isn't it great when we can get to the stage of throwing something away ans feeling better for it! Amen to Megan's comment.

I like it bead-less - but then I tend to like what you do with beads anyway!
