Isn't it exciting starting a new project? I just love it. I have started on the centre panel for Sallie Ann - but before I show it to you, I will show you my progress on Phebe.
I decided to put the pieces that I have finished together to see how it was going and also to tidy up a bit. I have *almost* finished putting together the bottom border and have most of the stars done for the top. I am pleased with how it's coming together.
Now Sallie Ann. First I need a background. This one is a pale yellow and tan. I already have the backing which came from the same range (it has been in my stash for many years).
Then add some greens. Mine are yellow greens which I love - some of them are old some not.
Then add some pinks/reds/cheddars.
OK - I need a pattern - I use a plastic overlay rather than mark the fabric (except for the stems which I do mark).
Sorry - couldn't get far enough away to get a shot of the entire piece.
And now to sew on the stems
AAAAAhhhhhhhhh..............I love starting and luckily I am becoming quite attached to finishing.
Which do you prefer - starting or finishing?
I hope you're having a great day starting, finishing or being somewhere in between.
