I got busy yesterday and made a model of the flat casket with foamboard. It wasn't too hard to do as I have a wonderful tool - a foamboard cutter.
It will cut straight down or at an angle. So I taped it all together and with only a few minor adjustments I have a foamboard casket.
I tried taping on the template edge but that looked very messy so I took it off.
I have been trying various parts of Sandy Orton samplers to see what looks good together. Most of the charts are black and white so it is a little hard to tell what it would look like.
One thing I learned from this exercise is that there is a lot of stitching area. Also, it is hard to get everything in appropriate size. A cow that is smaller than an iris? How will that look?
I imagined that the casket was larger than it is. I thought it would be squatter than it is. I guess a better way to say that is that it is taller than I imagined.
Here is Briar Rose all ironed and nice and neat. I am happy with how it turned out. I won't miss all that over one stitching, that's for sure.
I am working on the last few rows of Beautiful. It is going well. It feels absolutely huge compared to working on Briar Rose. I think I can get this done with in a few more days.
