Hello people. Happy weekend to you.
Whenever I had some spare time today I worked on the heart. Not happy. I usually don't use a lighter back and don't know if that is the problem or if I screwed up somewhere. This is the back of the heart, using the ivory background Old Script, and a beautiful fabric for a pocket. But I am seeing this light fabric from the front and it's bugging me.
I already pinked the seams close and hate to take it apart, but I may. This is what I planned to offer for my blogging anniversary and your friendship. It really helped me through these last months. Because of the generosity of many in offering this chart to me that I so love, I want to share it, and will stitch another for myself. Maybe it's best to keep this one rather than disassemble it and offer the second. Stitch the gift on the lighter linen as Stacy intended? I'll think about it this evening.
I remembered Carol's (Stitching Dreams) post of finishing tips and decided to try the one thing that I do differently. We both interface, pink, and steam smash, but I use quilt batting and she uses Touch of Silk fill. So I bought a bag today at JoAnn's half price sale. What a difference. It can loft with such soft volume and not crush, or be packed so tightly, and it doesn't melt when steam smashing. I never thought there would be a difference between bagged fill, but there definitely is. Thanks Carol! It's what I used in the heart and am very pleased with it. See? I'm not a crabass about everything.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Thanks for visiting.
