Remember when I blogged about my summer hand work project, Gathering Pieces? (click here)
Well this is what I've accomplished over the last month. Not as much as I expected,
but I'm still having fun. I can't believe how different my version looks from the pattern, I think it's the organge, that I still really like and intend to stick with. Someone on Instagram thought the blue blossom looked like cupcakes, I now agree, and crave Sprinkles Cupcakes every time I look at it. Luckily for me I am 200 miles from the closest Sprinkles Cupcakery.
After some trial and error I have learned that needles and thread make a huge difference in the ease of connecting the pieces and the look of the connected pieces. I'm using Superior silk thread and Clover Black Gold Needles #12.
It's not too late to think about or start what you want to do with your summer sewing time, just make sure it's fun!
