I think we’ve hooked her!
We’ve hooked her good!
As I was working in mom’s sewing room yesterday we came across some gifted BAGS of small scraps. Does this sound familiar?!?
It seems she came home one evening and found FOUR large lawn & leaf bags full of random gifted scraps on her front porch!
Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, she set along to sort out the fabrics and to determine which to keep, which to pitch, and which to donate.
Then this morning I gifted her a Dresden Ruler and set about teaching her how to join in on our Tumbler Leader & Ender Challenge!
Cutting out Tumblers!
Ready to sew a pair together!
Offset the pieces just a hair leaving a small dog ear at either end!
This will ensure that the row will be straight across after sewing. It might take a couple of tries to figure out just how far you need to overlap with your seam allowance, but a few tries and you will be able to eyeball it just fine.
Mom is sewing away!
ready to join these pairs together!
I cherish these photos, so glad I took them!
And so the row grows!
It’s going to be fun to see how mom’s quilt grows –I can’t wait to get home to mine!
Bye Bye, Garden Valley!
I’m on my way home to North Carolina this morning. This past week has flown by, I can scarcely believe that I was headed to Las Vegas this time last Thursday.
Life is like that….so make good memories, hug those you love tightly, focus on the beauty and change the things that do not make you happy!
I’ll catch you from home ---
