It is freezing here. That feels so great. I love to cycle in this weather. With a warm jacket, a warm scrave and warm gloves on.... the cold biting in my cheeks..... and then coming home to a warm cozy house.. mmmmmm.....
I am working on my swap with Dawn .We bought the same templates and we sew two blocks with the same fabric. One for Dawn and one for me... I am thrilled with the result. But oooohhh my..... it is so difficult to sew curves by machine!!! I tried several methodes: like using a lot of pins.... with only three pins..... and now without pinning. Gré - the new shopowner- can sew curves as the best and she do it without any pin. So I think what she can do, I can do it too:-) I don't give up and I am sure with a lot of practise I can make neat curves...
Dawn look! There are comming blocks your way :-))
ps... All credit to Dawn. She has sewn most blocks ( you can see at the picture ) !! I am a lot behind :-/
