This month is turning into 'The Month of Experiments'. I have lots of ideas that I want to test out.
I haven't used any of the Hishi Sashi patterns in my work for a while and in another piece I am designing I thought the smallest, 11 count patterns, would work well. The only draw back is that there are a limited number of designs in this count. Because they are small it takes time to cover the fabric. It has taken a day to finish this small swatch.
Then I had to deal with the limited number of designs. Queenie sent me a comment about my last post on swatching that got me thinking. Maybe it would be alright if I 'adjusted' some of the designs I had to expand the range of designs available. So I did. Oh the guilt I felt! Just shows how 'brainwashed' I am about following rules and regulations. All those years as a school teacher had an effect.
