I started photographing my pinwheels. I didn't get to finish because the camera batteries died. I have replaced the batteries, but, I haven't had much time to get back up there to continue photographing. Sigh.
I did, however, get up there yesterday and tried to sew some more pinwheels. I don't get much done before the dogs start bugging me about wanting to go out, or come downstairs, or eat, or whatever. I think I spent 45 mins or an hour up there. Not enough time for sure.
The pinwheels are coming out pretty wonky. I don't know exactly what I'm doing wrong. I like the pinwheels, but I'm going to have to go thru and square up each and every one of them....not going to be fun. So now, I'm wondering, do I want to keep going? I have the rest of them all sewn together in squares....I really don't want to tear the rest out. A decision I'm going to have to make. Use the pinwheels I have, and mix in the regular squares along with them. Its a thought. Or, maybe I'll keep going just to figure out where I'm going wrong. At any rate, I have realized I'd rather applique than to cut big pieces of fabric up, then have to sew the tiny pieces of fabric together. Anything smaller than 5" to work with makes me a little crazy!
So we'll see.....I'll work on the photographs and start a Pinwheel subject that will take me thru the process. Maybe someone can explain to me what I'm doing wrong!
