I’ve settled on my fabrics and have begun the task of sewing together teeny little squares. It’s fun and has been coming together quickly. Interestingly enough, I decided to press my seams open to make these–I’m a pretty firm side presser but I have found that when working with small pieces sometimes it works better to press the seams open–less bulk.
A tip for pressing seams open is to press them to one side as usual and then press them open–it works a whole lot better than trying to press open from the get go.
And another thing:
As many of you know, Google Friend Connect is being retired–I’m not sure if this applies to all blogs or only those not using blogger. Either way, as of March 1, it will no longer be working on my blog as I don’t have a blogspot.com blog. If you are currently following me via GFC, you might want to consider following via my RSS feed or via email subscription. If you’re tired of my blathering on about fabric and such, that’s cool also….hubs and the kidders get tired of fabric blather as well. =)
