I went home and had a go at some ideas Praveen and I are working on to style our images for our website...we don't have much fancy furniture and we live in a lovely but realistically a bit wonky Indian made house....so a luxury look is out of the question.
I have wanted to just hop in and stitch big and enthusiastically for a while- the samples I have been making I have had to control my stsitching and try and be neat and tidy because I am making them for the ladies to follow....and we all already know I would not get a job from me to stitch the porject I am too messy.
It is hard - I have a few who do totally random things and not ususally in a pleasing result and many who follow my samples and imporive them beautifully but I am hankering for some who can do that and add an improvisation into the mix with stitch colours or pattern placement.
Another brain buster for Praveen and I to work out...I think of it, struugle and sometimes snarl to get him to see it and then we work out how we can share that with the women....
We are staying in the componenet approach to most quilts as they go home and a large piece would just open the doors to too much dirt and accidents. The 2 ladies who work in the workshop are pretty busy with special orders on more traditional type hand quilted quilts with wadding inside [more on that later- it is a service we are working on offering soon]
Ok running away again, I have an new idea to have a go at :)
