Heh heh... Okay I am still NOT a master...but I did substantially better this week than last. So take that FMQ. Eat it. Ha. [I know my non-sewing friends are rolling their eyes - but what can I say, this is how I get my kicks. :P]
Since I am currently IN a wedding today I am actually not posting this real time but have scheduled this to post later. Cindy, I told you I was dedicated to FMQ Friday and so I am! Thanks so much to Lucy for linking this for me - she rocks...go visit her...
Obviously these are not perfect, they kind of sway this way and that but overall I am really proud of my stitching. Um, Annabella, I put my stitch length to 0, hahahahaaa, much better right?
|Detail! LOOK AT THAT! Hahahahahaaaa...|
|Back. I know...look at that fabric. Bleh.|
|Back detail. Even the back stitching is rockin'!!!|
|Another Glam Shot - BECAUSE I CAN!|
|Comparison from Last Week|
Because I am painfully honest at all times - YES - I included a comparison shot. Last week still makes me cringe! This shot is only going to motivate me more because next week will be even better. I sound confident because I had a lot of caffeine this morning and am feeling very You Go Girl.
What did I do differently this week? Stitch length to 0, and also, go ahead and giggle, I hummed a lullaby. Yup, I sure did. Miss E calls it the "baby song"and it is simply an old Spanish lullaby I sing when putting the girls to sleep...I think it really helped my rhythm. I don't know if I'd ever use this pattern because I don't like how your whole bottom is dictated by whatever you do on the top - it made me feel lopsided in my design. But, perhaps it would be cool to use in a QAYG way because the drops are really fun.
