I have to laugh at my childhood wish.....especially since I've spent the last few days ringing in the new year practicing. I've Practicing quilting stitches, some of which intimidate me and I've been practicing speed control while quilting, in an attempt to attain proper thread tension.
|Practice piece marked with heat and water soluble ink....all easily removable with a blast of steam.|
|I'm always amazed at how different the stitching looks once the marks are removed.|
During all this practice I've realized that I'm just as much of a perfectionist as I've always been....maybe worse. And even though this is just a practice piece I was very critical of and unhappy with every mistake along the way. Time to get back to practicing I will over come these darn feathers that intimidate me so much as well as those pesky thread tension issues.
