I have finished the embroidery I was working on over the past week and thought I'd share this pic with you...
I also put a few charms together for a swap using old stamps and tiny little frames that I found in the bead dept. at Jo-Anns - these were so easy and quick, I wanted to make more!
I've also been stitching up some blocks for a sampler quilt that I'm teaching - these blocks were 6" square T blocks - they came out pretty well, and I remembered that several of my students have asked me to post some hints and pics on precision piecing, so here are a couple of tricks that I use:
pin low - notice the block on the left is bumpy from pinning straight down and back up.
and before I sew, I hold the pinned pieces up to the lamp and check the seam alignment one last time...
and in the event that a seam allowance gets pushed in the wrong way in the seam - it isn't usually necessary to remove all the stitching - just take out the stitches that are holding the seam allowance,
Hope this helps answer a few of your questions.
Must be going - I have a long to do list this month. Watch for more pictures coming soon.
