Here's the start of my block for April. Ahhh this makes me much happier! Nice and bright! Sunny and cheerful!
I'm going to make the cabochon into a pearl surrounded brooch. I folded a piece of lace and thought it makes a great napkin! Then I started marking a seam. Last block I didn't do seams first and I hated that I didn't! So this time though it feels like I'm walking uphill in sand, I'm going to do the seams first! Then get to all the rest. I just feel like I draw a blank when it comes to seams, motifs I always have ideas flowing. I'm not sure why it's so hard for me to envision seam treatments. Maybe it's because I want them to be perfect and I'm not that good at being meticulous even though I enjoy the look of meticulous! HA! Whereas motifs are very free-form and look great that way. Oh well, I'm hoping it'll get easier as I do it more, that's usually how it is.
