UFO Dragged out, Kicking and Screaming...

ritaweedaJune 20, 2012

Me doing the kicking and screaming, that is, not the UFO. A couple of years ago I thought I'd like to try raw-edge machine applique, a tree of life which I designed myself. Needless to say, it went very wrong. So I found it in a bag this morning and since I'm not one to have UFO's around - (I actually have another one, this is very unusual for me)- I got to looking at it to decide if it could be salvaged. The only way was to cut about 4 inches off the bottom where most of the bad-looking stuff was. Who knows, maybe this time it will work. Wish me luck.

I did think the UFO was kicking and screaming ~lol~ because you do not have UFO's - I am laughing!!! :)

Now, I have recommended this book numerous times. I took a workshop with Sue Nickles; she is fantastic and so is her book. Very easy to follow & worth every penny if you are going to do Raw edge machine applique.

Good luck! And enjoy the process!

If you'd like to get in some extra therapeutic kicking and screaming, I can provide you with several more UFOs.

Rita, I have a few I could add to TG/Linda's UFO's to send you. I don't know why you don't want to be like most of the rest of us and have a stock pile of them. Boggles my mind. heehee

I think leaves on a tree would look awesome raw-edged and left to fray a bit.

A lot of kicking and screaming goes on in my sewing room. Sometimes it is the UFO, sometimes it is me.
Yesterday I found several blue & white HSTs from so long ago that I don't remember making at all. I think my UFOs multiply and change colors when I'm not looking.
