First Post in the Year 2012

Well, I made that white crochet border, and yet i am not fully happy with it...

So, I might use some ribbons ...

I love this border... finally...

Sometimes I really wonder, am I the only one who can't decide on what embellishments to use, and where to put it on the garment or a bag?  For me it all started good, the project is clear in my head, and I can't wait to cut the fabric and stitch.  I am all good and in the zone but when it comes to embellishments I just hit a wall.  I can't for the life of me decide on what goes where.  But when i see something already embellished, i know exactly what I like, and if the work is good or not.

Look at these two projects i listed above, two aprons and not enough fabric, so I decided to crochet a border. The thing is, I really sat and thought about it and I decided that pink would look absolutely lovely.  I sat yesterday and i finished it, but alas another idea came why don't I use some green, so like a trooper I opened all my crochet work and I started all over again, and I am very happy with the result.

I need to rework the white border. I am not completely happy with it, so I am just going to open it up again and add some red.  It will look better because, I am making the apron out of a summer fabric.  I wish I could just sit and whip up an idea in one single go instead of having them trickling down one idea at a time.

Well, I hope I am not the only one who faces with such challanges, because if I am, I just have to learn to live with it!

Lots of love,

Samya :)
