That, and a good Craftsy video on my tablet. I'm learning all about different yarns and the projects they are best suited for. In no time at all, I have a beautiful pile of red flowers. Ta Da! And I've learned a few things about yarn.
I must have a touch of OCD (or CDO, as I prefer to have the letters in alphabetical order), because I used this project as an opportunity to finish off all my partially used glue sticks. Keeps things tidy, you know?
At this point, I decided to use templates instead of bias strips to make the stems. I want the curves to be uniform, so glue basting seems to be the best course.
I'm off to make the stems, and when I'm done with the glue basting it will be time to stitch the motifs together.
