I wanted to make my nieces a "funky" kind of pin for Christmas. The first one I made, I solicited feedback from my classmates and the consensus was it was real pretty but something a grandma would wear. NOT!
I want funk! Two or three classmates sat with me and we chatted. One of them real encouraged me to not think too hard about what I'm doing and just go for it. Just start and don't be to perfect and forget symmetry. Start a stitch and don't be afraid to stop half way around. OK....I thought I'll go for it.
Setting out to make one for my sister. She would like purple, turquoise, orange funk. So I'll see what I can come up with. Stay tuned....I'll show you the end result.
