Let's Start at the Very Beginning
It's the only place I can start blogging here, as I haven't actually SEWN anything yet. I did however pick my background:
Ordered it, waited until it arrived and then promptly changed my mind because this arrived:
Which is a spot from my own new fabric line! How exciting to be able to use my very own spot, so I did. It's Ok though, I think the other spot has a new home with something else I'm appliquing.
I've been really enjoying reading everyone's posts and seeing what you're all sewing so beautifully, and I thought I'd add my two cents to how I applique. These are the tools I use.
Applique glue from Patchwork With Busy Fingers, Roxanne's #10 Sharps, my favourite tweezer scissors for getting down into tight curves, and Tre Stelle 100 thread, which is SO fine and beautiful to sew with and comes in delicious shades.
I've decided on the Roseville Album, and I've been playing with fabrics and colours. When I get a block cut out I will show you, and tell you how I use the gel pen too.
Now I just need to get some sewing time and I'm all set!
