When I was assigned my partner for the PLPS my first reaction was "Oh yes, I get a fellow-Canadian!" Shipping a pouch within Canada is much less expensive than anywhere else.
|The pouch really doesn't photograph well.|
But I admit that this was a hard swap for me this time. I looked at my partners mosaic, her pinterest, her blog and just couldn't come up with an idea that I thought would work. It doesn't help that I've been sleeping terribly so the creative part of my brain hasn't been working very well.
|The lines were sewn with embroidery floss through my sewing machine, the stitching on the star is by hand. And of course the paper piecing and applique is by hand too.|
Then at the beginning of the month I received my pouch. And to my surprise it was from my partner. Yes, we had each other. And the pouch she made me was amazing.
|I wish I had done that fancy stitching in orange thread.|
So not only did I have no good ideas, I now had this amazing pouch I had to match up to. And I had signed up in the advanced category. What was I thinking?!
As you can see, I did get the pouch finished and it's not bad. I really feel that it could have been better. You know that feeling? But I had to just let it go and send it off and hope she likes it and uses it.
|The D is her initial. And her last name initial too.|
She did request bikes in case you were wondering.
And that is the end of the story. Will I sign up again? Not sure, but not any time soon.
