Just as I wrote "TIF & quandry" in the title box I thought it sounded like a special hair style treatment that you can only get from an upmarket hair salon haha. "Good-day Mrs Llewellyn, would you like your usual TIF and quandry today?"
Lol - I digress. Back on topic now.
TAST - Buttonhole Wheel TIF
....Taking It Further.... ....and my Quandry....
A MUG RUG
I had this idea to imitate a quilt block using the buttonhole wheel,
and to put a whole lot together to look like a quilt.
And then I stitched the 'whipped-back-stitch' in black, padded it, bagged it out, and finished.
And I end up with what you see above.
It's exactly what I could see in my head before I started, and exactly what I set out to make.
Now here's my quandry -
I don't like it.
How can I get exactly what I wanted and yet not like it? I am puzzled.
Has this ever happened to you? If so, what did you do about it?
Do I need to give myself permission not to like it, or do I just fling it in the back of the cupboard and let it stew?
CQJP Stitching Time This Week
I've not got much to show for the week, apart from a weak chest from coughing too much, a sore nose and throat from sneezing too much, and a hungry family because I've been snoozing too much and not done the shopping.
It's flu season in NZ. and it's a "knock-u-for-six" stinker.
Anyway, I did manage to get 3 seams on my June CQJP done before flu stopped my play.
A crochet trim I made especially for this seam.
I made a Celtic styled woven braid for this seam.
And a weird combination of stitches here, including a V stitch exploration row too.
Hoping the flu goes away soon so I can get more stitching done next week instead of falling asleep every five minutes.
Hope you are all keeping free of the flu.
I'm going back to bed now! Feel free to talk about me while I'm gone.
