STAGE 2....


There ya go... still nutting out the pattern for the Frangipani Project. It doesn't look much eh? But this is a really important stage... you have to have forward thinking at this stage... and kinda know how you want it to look at the end... cos it doesn't look like much right now!
Today I will probably do some refining of the pattern.... and maybe cut out the flower and leaves (that flower in the photo is just paper).. They won't be changing much from the original plan... it's the background that can and probably will. It EVOLVES .....

I will spend a bit of time today catching up on blogs I neglected yesterday... and maybe even have a Nana Nap.... yesterday was just go...go...go.

*****Yoooo Hooooo RUSSELL*****... if you read this... text me your address please!

Yaaaa... I have caught up on all da blogs.... I can now go potter in the garage (where it's bloody FREEZING) and work on the F/Project.

And I took me piddle pills and have to keep running to the loo ... which sucks cos It's COLD in the loo too, and I have to take me warm trackpants off eh? That's a bummer. ha haha ha! At least I have company... Teddy comes to the loo with me every time. So nice of him. REALLY!
ABOVE: I finally have the sewing area of the garage set up how I'm happy with. *sigh*... it does take time eh?
ABOVE: We are making progress people! That pink/reddish 'thing' is a surfboard OK? And I'm going to use fabric paint to colour the yellow centre of the flower.
You lay all the pieces of material on Vylene (sp?) and once you have all the material on (like a jig saw) you iron it to hold it in place then put padding and a backing material behind it and then do satin stitch over all the joins... and add any other details as well. It is really very simple!
End of Day: I had a bit of a wind down this afternoon, ended up with another nasty headache... taking it easy for the rest of the evening. nite nite.
