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 -

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 - ;))

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 -
