New Year .... New Beginning for My Blog
Hello to my quilting friends!
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you may see a bit of a difference. On the blog home page, the tag list and tag cloud to the left look a little empty. Fear not! My old blog posts from the last three years are still on my site. Simply click on a year under the "Archive" tab to the left and pick a month to see blog posts from that time. However, if you click on one of my recent blog posts, the tag list and tag cloud fills in. This is another way to access old posts. In the coming months, I plan to choose some of my most popular topics and repost them so they will be easier to access.
Now on to where you come in ..... topics! What would you like to see me discuss on the blog, besides my new patterns and books? My posts are usually on topics that pop into my head while I am busily sewing. Things I think would interest you, my readers. But, if there is something specific you want, let me know!
On to some fun ..... Got some extra fabric lying around? I thought this was pretty funny. From my early driving days I have always wanted a VW Bug. When I saw this photo, it combined a Bug with another favorite thing of mine .... fabric!
I know we all have some scrap fabric lying around .... I guess this is one use for it! Have you seen odd things covered in fabric? Do you own any odd things covered in fabric? If so, I'd love to see it!
On a smaller (definitely smaller) scale, I have a cutting table that is loaded with 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" scraps that are left over from other projects.
I often keep these scraps bagged up by size and color to use for scrappy binding on future projects or to add additional scrappy borders. It's fun to experiment. I am currently working on a new design that will use only 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" strips. Come back and see what I come up with.
What to you do with your leftover scraps?
What is too small a piece for you to keep?
I would love to hear your views on this topic. Snuggles and I are waiting ........
