Orca Bay - 1/31/12


Now my geese need trimming -

And then they can get their WINGS!!

Oh - and by the way -

For those string blocks -

If your sewing machine doesn’t have that nifty little “thread cutter” feature -
Try this -


It comes with stick-um on the back of the cutter -
Just stick it on the back of your sewing machine -
Anywhere you want -


And - the magnetic seam guide is cool, too -
Just be sure NOT to use it on a computerized machine -
They tend to be allergic to magnets - ;))

And - in case you were wondering -
I DID use up most of those odd-ball half-full bobbins -
See?


So - back to the black/white corner - for my WINGS -


Dig out the HST units and some black triangles -
For a test run -


Lay them out to be sure -
That they are going the "correct" way -
Almost said "right" way - as opposed to "left" way? ;))


Then the other side -
Four this time -
Just testing - mind you - ;))


Whew!
Got all four going the “correct” way -
I KNOOOOW - I’m as surprised as you are!! ;))


All I have to remember is -
Sew the little black triangle -
To the “White/Neutral” side of the HST units -
Should be easy - huh? -
Wonder how many I'll mess up? ;))

Moving on to the “geese” -
Match up a couple -
Just to see -
(The trimmed dog-ears on the black -
Make them look like they are going to be short -
But they're not - watch - ;))


Actually “sew” them together -
And measure them -
Should sew up to 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" -


Not "perfect" -

But not “bad” either -

So I’m calling these two “good” -

And DONE - ;))

Only have a gazillion more to go -



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
