Do you ever have an "AH HA" moment while your sewing?
And think, "Why haven't I been doing THAT all along !"
I've been sewing on the January blocks for the Liberty & Justice Bee, (pictures below) and still working on "No Diamonds in the Sky". I recently started playing around with the leader-ender thing , of which I already almost have another quilt out of that! And talk about a thread saver !
"Sew" anyway, .....while sewing on one project, I'm thinking of another....
(I bet you do that too).....Dare to Dresden Blog Hop came to mind.
I thought "Boy I'm gonna have to get after that pretty quick"......as I was picking up a leader.....
I stared at it for a second..............
AH HA! I could be using the Dresden blades for my leader-enders !!!
I did the freezer paper method to print the message on my L&J blocks. Glue the freezer paper to a regular piece of printer paper, I used an Elmer's glue stick for that. Since the center block is 12 1/2" big, I cut a smaller piece of the same fabric, ironed it on the freezer paper and ran it through my printer.... set the ink with a hot iron and then it's washable.
Then applique it on. The finished block is 18"
This is my playground.
I love looking at people's sewing spaces. Mine is the spare bedroom I fixed up for my Granddaughters. I do my cutting at the dining room table. I would love to have a huge room designated for sewing......but this is what it is and I'm happy with it.
If you have a great place to sew, Or, maybe a not "sew" great place where you sew,
I really would love to hear about it. Maybe I'll get an, AH HA idea from one of you !
P.S. for my ranch wife blogger friends, it is RAINING ! I hope your getting RAIN TOO!
Have a wonderful day and may God bless YOU.
