Woo hoo! This is easier than I thought!
I started with what looked like the easiest one, and although I know I’m sewing to the wrong side of the paper template, I’m doing what works for me. On the printed side, I can see the lines more easily, and it just seems to flow more easily through my slightly damaged brain. So, the first colour block is finished, the Zeppelin. I had to unpick the very first line I sewed. I’d sewn the fabric on upside down. After that, I ‘measured once and cut twice’, and no more mistakes occurred. Which is just as well, because I was using a short stitch length to increase the perforations in the paper from the needle. Short stitches = more unpicking as well as = easier tearing away of the paper. Not that tearing away the paper was a ball, but it could have been a lot worse. There are a lot of long thin points on this one which made it difficult; the others will be easier. It’s nice, isn’t it? It certainly zings!
The Husband is on night shift today. There’s nothing riveting on the telly, so I may just pluck up the courage to do a second one. It’s going to have to be Circle of Geese in green. The last one, Rolling Star, is another pointy-piece frenzy, and I think I’ll wait for daylight/a night’s sleep/fresh inspiration before I start that one.
Have a good day, my friends.
