Let's go back to the Fandango square.

When I came up with this little Fandango square back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth I didn't realise how many patterns would come from it - or how many uses it would have.
I need a little something or other for my 'go to' when I'm tired tat.  Something I can just pick  up and 'do'.  So I decided it would have  to be the Fandango - BUT.  

Me being me I couldn't leave it alone - I had to fiddle with it as I wanted a ring in the middle.

Also I wanted to play with HWT - hand wound threads.  I am afraid I'm not into variegated threads unless they have subtle colour changes.  So I like to make my own. 

I year or two or whatever back I had a whole lot of odds and ends given to me by Sue so I've got them out of the cupboard to play again.  The biggest fun with this project is that no decisions have to be made until you want to start a new square!!!  This is my start!!!

I remember the fun you had in your last HWT phase! It’s sewing cotton isn’t it?

Clever design.

It's a pretty square!! :)

I had to look up the old pattern to see what’s different in the new version. New version wins!

Jane Eborall said...

Yes, Bev it's just a ring off a chain for the middle ring.
Maureen - yes it's just sewing thread of all sorts. Some polyester and some cotton all mixed together.
Stop watching, Diane, and get yourself better. That's an order.

Fandango is a neat design. There's a possibility it could produce a magic square series.

Jane Eborall said...

I guess it would, Judith. My problem is that now I only ever have one end to sew in when I've finished so that's not a problem and I also love playing with different colours!!!!
