The first word went well, but as I proceeded, I realised that I had chosen two fabrics which both read as mediums, and I should have had one of them as a dark or a light. Never mind.
The next problem was that I had forgotten how much fabric is needed for free pieced shapes, and I was in danger of running out of the floral fabric. I searched all my scrap boxes to no avail. Would I have enough to finish the letters?
Only one more word to go, and I think I will at least have enough for the words.
But I had intended to use the floral fabric around the letters, and there was no more fabric at all.
By careful piecing (and a rummage through the waste bin!) I managed to find enough scraps to at least make a background for the words. Can you see the desperation-piecing on the bottom left corner?
I've also finished my next stitchery from Caroline's blog. Very apt!
