|I like to look at the black fabric as negative space and focus on the diamonds.|
...until this week. Who knew it would finally find employment as a seam mallet? If you've ever tailored a garment, you know what I'm talking about--a wooden hammer-type tool used for pounding thick seams into submission.
The mini-bat totally did the job--which made it much easier to quilt over the four-point joins. No, I didn't use steam, though you would definitely do so on a tailored garment.
I knew there was a practical reason to keep this bat in the studio! It only took a few years to figure it out (and Negan had nothing to do with it. Yech!! :).
And speaking of Lucille...some finishes for the Lucy drawer (for my 2-year-old granddaughter--whose name is actually Lucy, not Lucille).
All yarns except in the green and blue hats are Serenity Chunky yarns by Deborah Norville. They're 100 percent acrylic (wash & dry), self-striping, very soft, and fast to knit.
These two hats match previously posted sweaters.
These two hats don't. Just felt like making some hats!
|Matching the striping pattern is an iffy|
proposition after breaking yarn. This was a little
more off than most of my efforts.
Lucy turns two years old this coming Saturday. Happy birthday, Sweetie! You are our pride and joy.
|I didn't make the hat, but I love the photo!|
