For the past weeks I have been working on the 'amusement doily' which I came across on Tat-a-Renda weblog. The first good thing is that the pattern is out there for free ! :)
As you see I have not quite followed the pattern. I liked Tat-a-Renda's version better. She ran out of thread and that's why she shortened the process but I did have quite a lot of thread ! I am just not a fan of overcrowded rings cramped next to each other. I think this version shows the pattern more and leaves viewers with more appreciation as it doesn't draw the attention to only overcrowded parts.
Excepts that, I have been up to some other thing ;) I finally signed up for Alisa Burke's water color class. I will be sharing with you my creations along the way. You tell me if you can see improvements in my work over the coming weeks as I continue my progress with the course ;)
Here is my first two attempts. Try to create painting and shades with one color only !
