There are only 2 more blocks that I am going to stitch for this project, the other 2 just don't suit my final design. Added to this there are another 2 blocks that I have finished that I have decided to exclude. Reason? I only need 12 blocks for my design and the ones I have decided against are just too different from the rest. One is the applique block. This is the only applique, it will stand out. The VW's are also being excluded and I have just finished them. They also don't match the theme.
Because of this I decided to play with them a bit. The applique will go into a mug bag, and I think the same will happen with the VW's. This last block was very lack lustre so I thought I would play with my ink intense pencils. I have had these for 5 or 6 years and done nothing with them. In this case I did some colouring in and them applied water. Not a bad result. (But it won't suit my quilt.) I will have to explore their use some more.
I am also working on a friendship block for my patchwork group and looking at how to stitch my Medici piece. (Those on-line classes I am designing are also being worked on but as they are for a client I can't post any images.)
My classes with Textile Designer have come to a halt. Firstly I became ill and couldn't stitch and then I just wasn't interested in the techniques they were using. I think I will give this another month and if I find the next 3 classes uninteresting, cancel the classes. I have a ton of things of my own I want to stitch. The only other class I would like to do is Sue Stones stitching faces. I really enjoyed that class and would like to explore this further.
