Why don't I like this more?
Do you ever have a sewing project idea just pop into your head as you are about to drift off to sleep, which then keeps you awake thinking about it? Or is it just me?
I have wanted to do a 'valleys' fabric picture for a while now but could not think what I could use if for. I did think of making cards but thought that they may take too long to make for something so disposable but then it hit me. I thought of a way I could make it into a brooch.
One bad nights sleep later I gave it a go. By the time I had finally got to sleep I had somehow convinced myself that I would be creating a work of art which I would instantly fall in love with! I can't put this down to eating cheese before bed or anything but the reality was rather different. The 6 centimetre square brooch just had me going 'meh'. It's no good, I just don't like raw edge applique and no amount of sleep depraved planning can change that.
