Anyhow, here's the wonderful gift she gave me. It's a pouch to hang in the wardrobe with rose potpurri. I'm usually quite sensitive to potpurri scents, but this smells wonderful! Fresh like real roses. One side has an embroidered heart and flowers and the other one a fabric heart. It's held together at the top with a silky cord and attached to an iron heart hanger. Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?
Thank you so much Julia. Sending big hugs and kisses your way.
I've been having a really bad week with a lot of pain, but yesterday I got a couple of hours where I sewed a little. I got these pre-cut squares that are from a Basic Grey line. I was over the moon when I found it. I had no idea you could get BG lines in fabrics! I plan to make a little bag/holder for my quilting mat and the knife/roller. The only problem is that after I was done sewing the squares together the seams "bubbled". I remember reading somewhere on the net how to sew squares together. I couldn't find it so I did like it said in a quiltingbook I have and what has worked before: I first sewed the horisontal squares together. And then when they where 4 strips I added those together. Any ideas on how I should've done it? I've been pressing the seams, but it doesn't seem to help. I'm thinking about re-doing it, but I need to know how to make it differently so I don't make the same mistake twice. You can click the pics to get a bigger image.
