So I thought that having to stitch something someone else has chosen, their pattern and colour, would help me broaden my horizons so to speak.
Talk about being thrown in to sink or swim, boy oh boy, did I get shoved out of my comfort zone on month one!!!
Your fabrics and block design Tara, have made push my boundaries right off the edge!! I do traditional, historical, lots of applique and all in traditional, historical, earthy colours and patterns. Yes I do contempory sometimes, but still in a traditional way!!
Do you know how hard it was to NOT match the fabric, to NOT make the house at least a little realistic, to NOT add some little flowers at the front of the house?????????
It was hard, trust me.
So having said all that, I really enjoyed making it, I hope it's what you wanted and that you like it. It's in the post tomorrow - bring on next month!!
