A Celebration and A Question
Yesterday was my birthday. Can you believe I forgot to take pictures? Not so hard to believe I guess, I forget so much as I get older. The other day Mr. Allie told me he's taking some pills for his memory - I asked him what they were, and he said he couldn't remember. Maybe he's contagious.
I have a question for you ladies that love applique. If you do needleturn, do you stay away from patterns that are for fusible web, or do you find it easy to add the seam lines? I'm creating some patterns now, and I've never done needleturn, and I have no desire to learn - I'm all about fast and easy projects. So I know nothing about adapting patterns if someone prefers needleturn. I would appreciate any input you'd like to give me!
And may I say I have a new-found respect for those who write patterns. It's not as easy as it looks. When you make something up, you will make mistakes - I spent part of my day ripping apart some borders. Not my idea of a good time, but it's part of the learning curve.
I hope you all have a happy and blessed Easter - hopefully with some warm sunshine as well. Part of my day involved finding all of our summer clothes, it made it to 80 degrees today - the fans were going flat out!
