Show notes for Episode 8 – Just some more chatting
Thanks to Lisa at A Stitch of Faith for letting me know that it is okay not to edit my podcasts.
I got creative this weekend and pulled out the Hexagon die for the AccuQuilt GO! Each die comes with a pattern inside and I decided to make the table topper for that die. I had never worked with Y seams before Saturday. At first, I decided Y seams were a B****. But after a while, I quit fighting the fabric and let it speak to me and figured out how to do it. I can’t take all of the credit though. Something in the back of my mind kept thinking Kaye Woods or Eleanor Burns. As I recall, I watched one of them tell me how to sew a Y seam. It had something to do with folding the fabric in, so I just did it. I think it all laid pretty flat. Take a look and let me know what you think. I know the fabric choices are questionable, but they were available in my stash and reminded me of spring.
Here are the hotpads I made. I found these at http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=550
See the jewelry/treasure box my mother in law made me for Christmas.
I received the Martelli Rotary Cutter for Christmas. I really like it. It took a couple of tries to get used to, but I like it!
I like my new Sewline TRIO marking pen as well.
Sometimes we forget to treat ourselves to a little pampering. If you live in the Denver, CO area and are looking for some TLC, call Jenn at Body & Sole. Ask her for the Michele Treatment. You will love it!!!
Check out this awesome Ginger Garlic Beef recipe. Note: The recipe calls for beef broth, but does not tell the user when to add it. Once I mixed it with the soy sauce mixture and once I mixed it in with the vegetables. It worked great both ways. If you try it, let me know what you think.
Here are some pictures of the Kindle Covers I have done:
