Up one week in sewing land and down with a crash the next!
Spent a fustrating day yesterday. Sandwiched this quilt on Friday night, all ready to sit down and quilt in on Sunday. Sunday comes, a nice lazy day at home with Daz and the girls, I can sit in peace and stipple away. Although due to usual antic of a household with a 2.5 and a 4 year old, there was interuptions, so I did this in about 5 sittings over the day, maybe that is my problem? Stiched in the ditch around the red centre boarder, small stipples around the heart, looking good! Larger stipples on the blue crazy strips, wander, wander, wander, swirly heart, wander, wander, swirly heart! All done at 8.30pm, turn it over and OMG! The tension in some area's is just horrid! I was flipping the quilt over as I sewed to check it every now and again, some times there was just one occassional heart where the lower thread hadn't locked in with the top thread so it all sort of pulled, but then one whole corner, every heart was like that! ERK! Loooks beautiful on the top. Showed Daz and his comment, "Yes, does look a bit weird" so now I am unpicking it all! Fun and games, feels like I wasted a whole day of sewing.
