As I get older, I’m trying to accept improvisation into my day-to-day living.
Wow! What a day!
My sewing room is a total mess, but it has been so much fun.
Thanks to Cindy Anderson, I have been reading two of the books she suggested.
I also viewed tutorials by Ryana Gillman
Cutting fabric without rules!
After studying the books for a few days, and watching videos, I really didn’t know where to start.
Ryana Gillman talks about revisiting and reinventing a block.
I pulled out some of my practice, “what-was-I-thinking?” blocks.
Gillman also suggests that you just cut and slice, without dwelling or thinking about it too long.
So, I grabbed the rotary and cut…added, cut again, added…
After the first few cuts, I started feeling comfortable and having fun.
I do not know what I will do with these reinvented blocks.
My improvisation is a bit off…but, again, there are no rules…
I’m not there yet, but it is a first step in trying something new.
“What Was I Thinking ?” Block #1
What am I doing?
Reinvented Block #1
“What Was I Thinking ?” Block #2
Improved…Different…But not the best…
Improvising in my old age has made my day to day a bit more exciting.
Thank you, Cindy Anderson!
