Since M liked the yellow flower pix, here are two more flower pix. Love the fake grapes lying there in the dirt; they're from a wreath I used to have hanging on my front door. The gray strip of door insulation used to be on my door frame too, ha ha! Oh, entropy.
Blue flowers I don't remember the name of
I've made some more progress on the Amy Butler Snow Mum Pillow. Last night I cut out the medium & small petals with my embroidery scissors (I abandoned the rotary cutter for this task). Tonight I sewed a 1/8" seam down 1" of all 20 large, 16 medium and 12 small petals. I tried to sew the seam for the center petal, but I don't like the results. I might rip that out and leave it sans seam, or try a half inch instead of an inch. It looks like a starfish in the picture. The circle is the flower base.
Maybe I'll try cutting the threads off later tonight.
Gosh, could I have this pillow done by the end of the week?? er, weekend? I need to:
- assemble the flower
- sew the flower to the pillow front
- sew on the piping
- hem the back pieces
- sew the back pieces to the front
- insert pillow form
- admire & photograph my work
Oh, and rocketboy posted a review of a buttondown shirt he made. He is talented! He sewed that shirt out of a bed sheet. Another good reminder that fabric is everywhere.
And check out my competition for the Sewn Hat contest. I believe voting starts April 2.
