.....I'm up to now???
Well, you'll just have to wait and see!
Yesterday I posted pictures of the latest barn project and I can tell you now that I'm not happy with it. And I do have a reason for that. The barn itself, although it's the right shape and overall look for what I wanted, the colour of it isn't. I want fabric that's the colour of old weathered barnboard - the grey old look. This one simply didn't do it for me. The search is on for appropriately coloured (& preferably with a textured look that works) fabric and it's proving to be much harder than I thought it would be. I don't mind adding some paint to make it look 'right' but I need to have a good base. And I know someone is going to suggest I simply paint it from scratch and that's not something I can do - my creative genes don't lend themselves to that amount of 'art'. And I know I 'could' dye some, but that's decidedly frowned upon....using communal washing machines in an apartment building for that sort of endeavor is a no-no....b'sides dye would just give one overall colour and not the look of texture that I'm wanting. I know - I want too much, don't I!!
- You might have to use the 'translate' feature for THIS, but isn't she cute?
- You might find the information HERE about fully utilizing your quilter's rulers interesting. All those marks on those rulers DO serve a purpose and the mystery is revealed!
- I don't know if THIS little tip for sewing vinyl or plastic actually works, but it might be worth trying.
Today, instead of a quote, how about a little laugh...
