Super Bowl Bargello Sunday!
Well gals, I'm off and running! I did get some time last night to pre-sew my panels....so today I am slicing panels and doing my up and down stair steps. I'm making 6 panels!
I find it helps instead of matching the ends of the strips as I'm sewing them, to match the centers, and let the ends fall where they fall. They just seem to be straighter panels that way for me, and there is enough lee-way to trim the edges straight when cutting the sections from the panels. For some reason matching centers of strips keeps the wonkiness under control for me.
DS #2 has left for work. He works a double shift today, so it's just me..a book on mp3, a 2 litre of diet dr pepper, some left over chinese take out that I can reheat...and the sewing machine!
What a great way to spend my last sunday!
I'm going to do all 3 uphill panels first, and then 3 downhill panels, it's easier for me to keep track of what I'm doing that way. I won't have to switch back and forth.
