Don’t you just love OPAM?
I’m going to be preoccupied for a week or so soon and knew I needed to get something done for OPAM for March so I went through my well endowed bundle of ‘to do’s, most of which I store in their own pizza boxes, and found the ‘bits’ for the wee beauty “ Mmmm, Berry Nice”.
I started this one ages ago and carefully cut out all the contrast fabrics but hadn’t laid a blade on the focus fabric – I couldn’t! I had bought this fabric ages ago and had frequently dragged it out, stared at it, admired it and then put it away. It was/is one of those fabrics that no matter what I did with it I doubt if it was ever good enough. Well the day came when I just sucked it up got the rotary cutter, complete with new blade, and just went for it, ever so carefully of course – I didn’t want to waste a single strip of it. Eventually 12 tri colour blocks were stitched, there was no going back now!
