The post title is silly. I didn't know what else to call my post so that's what I went with. It may or may not be accurate. Pretty sure it's the latter.
So, I'm practicing my free-motion quilting and freezer paper stenciling. I made these Ent potholders for my little girl. Okay, not-so-little girl.
Definition of ENT:
You know, the old tree-like creatures that came alive in The Lord of The Rings. Yes, yes. I know that regular trees are alive. What I mean to say is "mobile" rather than alive. Those guys.
My stitches are quite uneven. I'm so tense while I'm free-motioning. I feel like old Betty (my sewing machine) is going to suddenly take flight she's moving so quick for her age. I gotta relax. Tips? Suggestions? Ideas? Maybe I need lotion or something?
By contrast the stenciling is quite relaxing. The possibilities are endless and it's such a simple technique. I'm looking forward to some intricate designs.
Have an lovely evening and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
