I decided that it might be best to baste the ric rac to the heart and then secure down the whole deal. It does soften the edges of that angular shaped heart. Of course, stitching thru all those layers was not without peril, LOL. Between the pins, the glue, sticking myself a couple times I was happy to put it away and start fresh this morning-------with a heavier, longer milliner's needle.
This being the start of the New Year I have been thinking about what projects I might like to work on, what my goals are. I have done well setting short term goals for the day, or the week. I mention them here and that keeps me accountable. I have pictures for blog fodder too, LOL. Mulling all that over--something from several categories? Personal, Pro Bono, QOV, UFO? I told Norma we can make plans but we reserve the right to change our minds and add something totally new to the mix----go where our heart is leading us. Sometimes that is exactly what is needed to rev up the creative fires.
But for now some short term goals for this week are----------
- finish prepping February button up
- finish assembling Pineapple Blossom top
- finish the binding on Give Thanks button up
