Default Re: Does it ever get easy?

I'm like one of the PP'ers. I want to throw it at the wall too. So frustrating!! I get one thats way off, then I make one and it seems to be really close, except one loop just won't cooperate. Then I read here and find one more tip that helps a little. Like the one ronnie just gave about the X being long and skinny. I thought it should be the opposite, so I will be trying this today. I say I'm gonna get this, but everytime I make one and screw up I say, this is the last time!! All this over a bow!!??

If you click into my profile you will see how the bow ends up looking if you do it the way I showed you.

I think.. at least, I'm *hopeful*.. that this gets easier over time. If not, I don't see many twisted boutique bows in my future lol

You can do it, Maxine!! I have seen your work. You have it down...all you have to do is work on your crease.

You know, I got away from it for a few days and now it seems I can't even make what I made before

I just haven't had the time to sit with it and really work at it. I know.. I really need to practice!
