I love the reactions of young children. They are so fierce is what they say and do. So real. With this said our 3 yr of granddaughter was over yesterday and I was sewing the binding on a quilt. I had my binding secure in place with my quilt clips. Destiny comes up to me to “help” when she saw the clips. This is when she raised her voice, hands on hips and demanding , “Why do you have MY things on your blanket? Those are mine. You don’t use MY things on your things.” She then took them off the binding and put them back in the container. After that every time I picked the quilt up she came to inspect it to see if I had HER things. I have to admit I did do this some to see what she will do.
This afternoon will be more thread painting. I will give this advice, either buy LOTS of the color threads you need or keep the dye lot number so you can go back and get more. I have gone thru 3 spools already and need to go for more. Still well worth it. Another tip I found out by accident. I decided to take a few stitches out on a sample piece and it was so time consuming and almost impossible, so I took out my little electric razor. I use this to cut threads and it works great for lots of threads. I went over the threads and what it did was made the threads feel like fur. I may do this for a puppy next. Not on an eagle tho.
Well I am off to buy more thread and my own quilt clips. Have a great day.
