I wish I could say I never produce work that needs to be ripped out. I can’t. This past week my friend Hollie added a bead tail to the needles she uses when she is removing stitches and working too close to her machine needle for comfort. After seeing a picture of them, I just had to make myself a couple of them. The added bling makes keeping track of their whereabouts so much simpler. Needles used to rip out seams are affectionately referred to as “froggin’ needles”…”rip-it, rip-it”.
Speaking of Hollie, I received the block she made in our quilt block sampler swap in the Art 4 Mail group. The first block is a simple four-patch. Her fabrics are gorgeous. I’m a big fan of paisley from way back. Our first theme color was blue with a complimentary fabric.
Tomorrow I will mail the ones I made out to the ladies in my group. Did I mention I am a big fan of paisley? I guess I should have repressed my block before taking a picture. It was already folded neatly in quarters, ready for the envelope.
This is how I’ve spent all my sitting time this afternoon. It look like I’ll be cutting tiny stitches for a while. This was a collar I picked up at a thrift store for a dollar a while back. It’s high time I remove the beautiful lace and start using it in CQ projects. I’ll use the muslin, too…
That’s a wrap for this time.
Until next time…
And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. (1 John 2:1)
