Hi! I've been working on a couple of projects that at times have been frustrating. And I wonder why do I do what I do? Can't I just make things simple? So I kind of gave up on some things for this magnetic note board. I wanted to create a Mizuhiki butterfly but just could not find a tutorial or figure it out by staring at the photo for hours at a time. So finally I just had to call it quits. Do I really need that butterfly? YES! But I'll have to let it go for my sanity. Not to mention that the weather here has been horrible with rain, thunder, lightning and hail and now wind, and it makes me feel tired and cranky. Driving in this kind of weather is awful too! Today is not as bad but the wind has really picked up.
Anyway, I made this board for the Asian inspired theme over at Anyone for Anya. I also have gotten a little addicted to this new technique (for me, anyway) of 3D paper piecing. The tutorial can be found HERE and it is a bit time consuming but the end product is really neat.
I have another project using this 3D technique that has also been driving me a bit crazy. Hopefully I'll get that done soon.
Thanks for reading!
