Di Showed me how to QAYG, and there are pics of her examples here.
So today I have been having a go myself
It's hard to see the stitching in these photos..... but I'm pleased with the general effect, and I like this technique. I think these are destined to be a zippy pouch.
One of my favourite things about meeting up with other bloggers is 'show and tell' time, and last night Trudi had the most amazing things to show us. It's also learning new things from other people. So my two new tips which I am enjoying putting into practice are hanging my mini scissors on a lanyard round my neck when I sew so I am not always losing them, and sticking a 1/4 inch guide on my sewing machine to mark where I should sew.
There won't be a Stitching It Together in April because of the Easter holidays - but hopefully there will be more chatter, cake and maybe even some sewing on Weds 8th May.
Things I am not so pleased about this month is my hipbees block for Rachel. I am not sure what happened, I think I got confused when I followed the tutorial, anyway, look - I completely lost every point in this block. There is nothing sharp about any of the corners. Gutted. Rachel has been very kind about it all, and I sent her a little something to say sorry when I sent my block off to her. Perhaps I will be put in the remedial class.
Something new I have signed up for is the apron swap. There are still a few places if you fancy it - doesn't everyone need a sassy apron when they're in the kitchen!!
