I've started so I'll finish?????
Last week I had an interview at Liverpool community college and I took several pieces of work with me in an A2 plastic carrier. Today I decided it was time to put it all away and have a good old spring clean of my work. I carefully went through the big plastic box, where I keep it all, finished or unfinished. In the middle of the pieces I came across last years Liverbirds Christmas card challenge. (Make something using an old Christmas card for inspiration) This is what I originally started before the Twelve Days of Christmas interrupted. I started making this on poor old Mrs Jones and it was all wrinkled and puffy because Mrs Jones does not have a walking foot. I decided to unpick it all, put it back together and have a little play with free machine quilting. It was a very good size for practising free motion quilting on and I now have one completed UFO. All be it with some very dodgy free motion stitching. hehehehe!
