I carved out a bit of quilty time in my sewing room yesterday! Ahhh sheer BLISS!
I worked on my wee houses..and discovered a NEW TO ME trick! Down south I was using pins to hold my wee paper pieces together and I have to tell you, there was shifting…lots of shifting…and it was hard on my fingers to pierce paper and fabric using PINS! Well no more! I dug out my container of Clover Clips…and they worked like a hot darn!
I lined up the edge of the clips with my stitching line and then flipped and checked that the other side matched up to the stitching line and then let her rip…on the machine! (because with the Clover Clips there was no ripping needed!)
Easy peesy…DONE and absolutely no shifting or no sore fingers! Isn’t it amazing how a wee small change like using clips instead of pins can make such a huge difference?
Houses…done! All ten of them! The BIG reveal will be on the last day of the month! Can you stand it? :o))
Have a super Saturday and Happy Stitching!~P
