Things I dont get …

2 Comments

There are A LOT of things I don’t get …
But right now I want to talk about a couple of quilting things I just don’t understand.

OK, firstly. Low Volume.

MM Low volume MM Low volume2  MM Low Volume4

I’ll admit it. I just don’t get “low volume”.
I don’t. On the whole, to me, they’re a bit boring! I love me some good BOLD colour!
Not to the point that they hurt the corneas, but I’d love to see more lovely colour – please!

This is more my speed ;)

MM Colour

Maybe it’s just me.
I’m not really one for fads {Unless that fad includes Kate Spain! She can do no wrong in my eyes haha }
For example, I like chevron fabric.

MM Chevron

I would even go so far as to say I really like some of them – if the colour’s right ;)
But I didn’t understand the whole craze surrounding them.
It seemed for a while there you couldn’t find a showcase or fabric
sale/shop without them and it drove me a little nuts …

Oh, and while I’m at it, why fuglies??
They’re truly fugly and I have no idea why any designer would make them!

Anyhow ….. On a different note, I forgot to share a fabulous little dress I made for a special girl to wear to Taylor Swift!

She looked fabulous in it too! :)
I think this is the most challenging garment I have ever made!
There is 10m of chiffon in that skirt and a lot of the sequins around the edges are hand sewn on :)
But I think it was worth it! The underneath work isn’t even close to my neatest unfortunately,
but that didn’t translate to a messy top luckily lol

Anyhow … off to do some Block sewing! 2 posts in 2 days plus still bursting with mojo – Squeee!

I am a SAHM, who works nights and sews and am trying to get a petminding business off the ground ... My boys are my life and I love my life. Sometimes I just like to ramble and I reckon this will also be a good way to improve my writing skills :) Please feel free to comment, I love feedback and to have a chat :)
