I seem to be losing momentum in these last few chapters. Perhaps it really is a repeat of earlier experiments. Close enough that I am feeling less than enthusiastic about the techniques.
I soldiered on, though, with folding triangles and sandwiching into squares.
These two photos were taken at the halfway point. After making two of these, I stitched them together to get this:
Of course, this is just the basic shape. The fun part is manipulating the triangles and stitching the edges, etc. Basically, the same techniques as a lot of the previous work in this book (or books).
I have the triangles refolded into trumpet or kite shapes, but it is just pinned at this point. As I have time during the next week, I will do the hand stitching and – hopefully – have the finished flower or whatever it is to show you next week.
During the coming week, I also plan to take a look ahead in this book and see if there is anything startingly new or interesting. If not, then I believe I’ll move on to the next book.
After all, if I am getting bored then I imagine you are all yawning and tuning out as well! Can’t have that!
