good because you have a bit of a journey ahead.
jude...a little, well, yes. ithink the panel needs to be about2ft longer and then there needs tobe 8 or 9 more of them....soyes...a bit of a journey. butthe very best part is that itcan be ANYTHING.
I've taken mine off and am redoing patches of it. Decided I wanted the squares smaller. Long journey...
DebG ~ i'm wondering what it meansthat i am so fond of working inpanels..?..not squares...i reallylike putting squares INTO panelsbut like the feel of rectangles.someone must have done researchabout this you would think.i hope the basic cover will notbe too long a journey here. i amsssooooo tired of the sheet onit and know that not too long fromnow it will be wool blanket time.the 3 little ones burrow into thefolds of the blanket.* so the blanket will be on the seat of thecouch, but the whole cover willbe on the back too and i will LIKElooking at it...wonder what thatwill feel like?I take whatever is on there to thelaundromat about every two weeksso the denim makes me very happy because it will only become more and more beautiful with repeatedwashing....and the ecstatic part comes in withthe hand stitching. i just amcrazy with what that feels like...to HAND STITCH something this large and this functional is a real trip. and as i sew, i watchhow the threads i am sewing areactually WEAVING in with the threads of the cloth...just asjude said: "stitching is weaving".i want to actually strip weave parts of it too. and then, afterit is together and functional andthe dogs are weaving in their hair,i can add small things of beauty.*there is no heat in here at night.i let the wood stove go out. i'dlike to break them of the habitof being in bed with me. 4 dogsand a cat are toooooo much.i hope you blog about your changes.it was your Inspiration in thefirst place......xo
I will. I also wanted to add some weaving. I started that big patch of woven denim for a cover on my rocking chair but really liked it when I draped it over the couch. The denim has such a soft comfortable texture to it, I like it much better than the cover I originally made, some type of cotton mix. The dogs sleep with me too, and when it's really cold, I have a gas fire place for heat and it doesn't heat the whole house, the cat tries to snuggle in too. Unfortunately, my little one (the chihuahua) who is a burrower like yours, likes to come charging out from under the covers and the chases the cat off almost every time. Hazel (the cat) has learned to wait until Lola is really settled and then she sneaks in. I have to admit they provide a lot of heat. Oh and I'm sure there is some deep psychological reason we all choose the shapes we do.... :)
DebG~we could be the same house.pretty much same scenario here,tho cat, Tazmeena, waits untilthings are all quiet so she cansmash up on my legs which drivesme crazy until i am unconsciousin dreamtime. i might relent when it gets cold.easy to make plans when it's stillin the 60's at night
