Some progress to report in spite of having a lot of US Nationals Figure Skating to watch on TV.Â I usually have the TV on when I sew, just for company, I guess, not to really watch.Â But certain shows require actual watching, and skating is one, so it does cut into the productivity!
A lot of the time when I sew these pieced pictorial pieces, I use straight line seams, it is easier;Â but these fire scenes seem to require curved seam piecing which is definitely more time consuming! What takes the most time though, is choosing which fabric goes next.Â Then the cutting and auditioning and sometimes even sewing before deciding perhaps something else might be better!
Here, I thought I might extend the fire’s glow a little higher,
Or perhaps a darker fabric would be more dramatic!
