Bars and Swirls

The ribbon floss in the background of the music bars kept shredding as I used it. Even with very short lengths of about twelve inches, a full third of it shredded. Not my favorite floss. More whipped outline stitch with the swirls. I'll be filling them in during this week. For some reason, I thought this would go faster. I'm also still not at all pleased with the directions.

I've been watching your progress on this as I really like these little belt buckles, too. I suspected the guides might be hard to follow since I found Carolyn Baird's book very difficult to follow. Like many wildly talented artists, she's not always very articulate about what she has done. But if you stick to it and change things that don't seem to be working, I know you will end up with some fantastic "buckles" and learn a great deal from a very creative mind.

Good luck!
