I was looking through some of my old badges the other day. I have a small box where my badges go to die. Ones that had issues with the thread or they just didn't cut the mustard. When I first started I had not stitched in a while so making the badges was a lot more hit and miss. I found it hard to do the eyes because I couldn't get them to look the same on both sides where as now I can just stitch them up quickly and they match up.

I have been making the ladies for 1.5 years now, which seems like quite a while. The time has gone a lot faster and I don't feel like it has been that long. It is good to look at my current work compared to older stuff and see a real improvement. It is also good that they are no longer hit and miss and have a consistent look to them. Putting the old and new ones together is quite funny because there is such a huge contrast between them, although the two here were the worst of what I was doing back in 2006. I'm surprised I let them out of the house and that I even thought they were okay because now they just look munted, even when they don't have the current ones next to them!

now, which are the old ones and which are the new ones? Only joking! I think we all have a place where our stuff goes to die! Happy New Year.
