When I was taking the class with Betsy Morgan, she used a cool tool to cut the mylar. It is a Martha Stewart design and is actually three tools in one. Everybody in class wanted one. When I got home I went to Michael's and found one.
I got most of my goals accomplished yesterday.
I finished the third petal for the carnation.
I wove the other drawstring. I was putting this off because I knew that it had to be done in one go, no stopping,and that I needed to work on it for about an hour straight. It went better this time and I don't have any parts that I need to hide.
I started the couching of the silver thread for the cornflower. But the thread broke!
I have to decide what to do. I'm changing the couching thread and the needle I was using and starting over.
I saw a completed carnation on the website tutorial so I'm inspired to keep going. I have one more petal to make and I can put mine together and finish my carnation. I'm going to see how much I can get done today.
