Not much to report. Kind of did myself in with all the sewing the other weekend; this week has been The Writing Week instead.
Tula Pink MiniQuilts
Yeah, I kept going with the scraps after my #aussietulapinkswap was done.
The quilting is very experimental, although it looks great from a distance. I'm just...I feel bad about giving it away as a gift to a quilty person who I feel will be all "ugh, they're giving me this - but it's so bad!"
I've been the recip of an "ugh, this was badly made" gift before; it's not fun, and so I try not to be That Person.
I have another set of half-square-ish triangles blocks which I'm going to use to make another one.
Swarm By Sel
Or: why I will never win a show.
My seams are entirely too flexible.
Another six rows put together. And I'm running out of small triangle blocks. Which means a whole new set of making is going to be necessary.
It's going to get messy...
1. Thinking of buying a Bernina 750 QE - assuming I can get one at Kim Bradley Creations' VIP Sale tonight. Not sure I'll make it in time to snag a machine, though. I also need more of the C+S neutral basics to finish Swarm.
2. Going to need to do a lot of sewing this weekend. I was hoping to have Swarm done by Quiltmarket, just to have something to show off amidst the stream of fabric envy posts.
3. I really don't like the new Flickr update - in order to share a picture now, I have to select the 'share' button, select the size, select the code, and 'cut' it for pasting to, say, a blog post. That's four discrete actions, as comapred to the two it used to be. The size used to be automatic to the last setting, and the code was already selected.
Why the extra steps? Unless they plan to put advertising into the whitespace, like they do everything else. I'm a computer programmer, I know about user experience - and this is BAD user experience.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday...
