I'm almost done with my alpaca and not ready to show you yet but just wanted to share an issue I had with his head.
His hair on top is puffy so I made it like a helmet with fabric and then thread painted over it. I only had a thick 40w thread so don't really want to go to thick or the thread breaks and misbehaves. He looked like he is loosing his hair :-/
So I just filled in along the top - thread was fine, no breakage or weirdness :-)
I like it so much better now.
I also finished another stones / quiet your mind quilt. I am in the process of making a downloadable pattern for this but can't decide on a name. I will be including both "quiet your mind" and "soothe your soul" for wording. Some people call these rock sculptures, some cairnes, some just a pile of rocks.
Anyone want to test the pattern when it's done?
If you do, send me your email address and I'll send you the pattern when it's done. All I ask in return is constructive critism with suggestions. Beginners welcome as I think this one is actually quite easy and would like to market to beginners IF it is indeed appropriate for a beginner.
Want to quiet your mind?
