Look at my poor kitty! Chip isn't feeling too well today and it is all because of mean ol' me! She got taken to the vets for her little girl operation. One night stay over and I brought her back yesterday afternoon. She seems a little sore and doesn't move around very much. I guess I wouldn't either if I were her! Sorry, it is part of what happens to animals if you're are going to live at my house. I'm giving Chip a lot of loving but she prefers to hide out in her cat box away from the rest of the feline population. So now I've got two hiding cats, Velvet (I don't know what his problem is) and Chip. I'm sure she'll be up and around soon though.
After much consideration I have decided to go ahead with my Winding Ways arrangements. I checked out some of the recommendations for making Winding Ways with more visible "blades" but I wanted to go for the melded look this time. You know where things sort of flow together and you're not really sure you are seeing circles or not. Sort of a middle of the road arrangement. If I can't see the circles at all then I'll be disappointed but if I can see them too clearly then I'll feel I'm not being artistic. I don't understand my own reasoning so don't worry if you don't either. This picture looks a lot like the one of two days ago but I did add and rearrange a little bit. On to sewing!
Between classes yesterday I sewed two blocks. Oh gosh, this is hard! The curves don't go the way I want and it is slow going. The centers are hard to match up too. Well, too bad. I've started and hopefully I'll get better as I go along. I'd like to put together two blocks a day but we'll see. If I get on a roll I may go the distance this weekend. If not then I may be plugging away throughout February.
