…and i didn’t expect to take this unexpected break for so long….
I recognized it was a long break, when my things to do list piled up.
So i decided to start from one corner.
This ugly yellow fabric is from my stash.
Why did i choose this colour..I tried to convince myself why i got it.
I was in love with the texture of the fabric, and so i wanted to try it..but there wasn’t any better choice of colour.
Few months back, i decided I'm going to make this ugly duckling into a pretty thing.
I started to crochet on the edge…this is a tip of an iceberg…it is a pretty long piece.
With dull white , i crocheted and crocheted and i got bored…
When i got a decent width for the lacy edging, i stopped crocheting. But still it was not looking pretty.
Yesterday i was searching for one of my crochet hooks…yeah it was not in my tin.
i tried to rewind when did i use it last…ok…this was the project…
i went digging into my finished stuff bin, where i usually keep my crochet and embroidery finishes…it wasn’t there.
Then went digging into my quilted finishes, in the bottom drawers of the chest…yeah it was there…
To my surprise, it was neatly folded with the crochet hook inside..that was something unusual ..i never do it like that.
I think, because i wasn’t happy with the stuff, and i was in 2 minds to do few more rows of crochet or not…I don’t know why…, anyway i got the crochet hook.
But still this ugly yellow was looking at me…. I decided to block the edging .
Since last week, i was playing with my new toy Janome MC8900 QCP .
I pieced, appliquéd and tried a bit of quilting also,I'll talk about it later, this smart guy has so many of the decorative stitches to try……some 200+ ....
Few hours back, I decided to try one of the decorative stitches on this piece, to make it better…and it worked…
…it is looking better right…
Now i love it….
It is definitely going to have a place in my decor, along with some new set of cushions…
That’s it for now..Thank you so much for stopping by with your lovely comments.
I have few more stuff to share with you..
Hope to come back soon..
Until next time …
Have a nice day…nima
