I don't think I've ever been so glad to see pine needles before!
This week's pattern was so much nicer to me than the guts we attempted last week. That's not to say I did an amazing job or anything, but I had fun again!
Here's the first attempt, feed dogs down....
Not bad, not bad...The second column looks a little rough, but I'll take it. I was trying to make the needles from the first and second columns interlock like Leah was talking about, so I was worrying more about that than I probably should have been.
I put my feed dogs back up for the second one, but really couldn't tell much of a difference.
And the third attempt...
Somehow, I think I got worse with each attempt. I even got a mutant three-prong needle in this one...Looking back at the pictures now, they remind me more of the fish skeletons you see on cartoons instead of pine needles.
Overall, I don't think I did too bad. I do wish I would make more time for practicing during the week instead of waiting until Thursday afternoon, but that's the way it goes right now.
A big thank-you needs to go out to Cindy of Fluffy Sheep Quilting for hosting our little party every week!
