struggles


Hmmm... somehow I suspect I've used that as a blog title before.

This cradle bedding project is kicking my behind.
I'm about 1/8th finished.

(And I thought it would be relatively simple, how typical of me.) You needn't rub it in if such a project wouldn't take you months to complete.

No pattern = hard

thick cording = hard

thick cording around corners = I call a time out.

Learning new things and not giving up (for more than a few days at a time) = priceless.

(insert exhasperated noises)

Just think how incredibly beautiful it is going to be when you do finish it. Go em go!

I like the colors you're using. And you're brave to use cording, I think. I never have cuz it scares me.

Oh shoot. I'm about to cover a naked ottoman that I got in the as is section of Ikea. I love it because it has storage. But I got cording for it.... Am I going to regret that? I just figured it'd be three layers instead of two.

Any advice on sewing the cord?

um gorgeous!!! I hate cording too. yours looks SOOOOO much better than mine ever has. I guess that's what persistance does for you. It looks awesome!

nestle - you'll notice there are no corners showing in the photo!

I'm trying to figure out a better method for the corners, any ideas?

What's up with a baby having prettier bedding than I do?! That pattern and cord is gorgeous. Good luck. I didn't even to cording when I made Lily's. Right now I'm working on Halloween costumes and am so grateful for patterns!
