WOYWW

Almost missed it!  It's after 11 at night.....

But... if I want to play...I must try to be regular...so here I am.  Better late than not at all I guess.

A friend came on Saturday to get some pointers on making a bear of her own.  I found some old pattern pieces I had cut over a year ago... and managed to put a head together while she did some stitching.  It's not a bear...... but, actually from the look of it ....well, hey...it could be anything at this point, right?















We yakked and laughed and had some fun.  Oh, and some biscotti too...















more pieces .... just hanging out ....waiting for some stitching......

If you look closely..you will see that I traced my pieces with a ballpoint pen.  Don't do that. Especially on white fabric.  It might show through the fabric at a later date.  And, if it gets wet... there could even be some dye leaching into the fabric from the ink.  I do some dumb things sometimes...and now...I am stitching in from the edge further than I usually do...so that I can just trim off the lines.  More work.  But, that's me for ya some days.  Duh......

I won't do it again.... .. honest.... ...


If you would like to play along with us on WOYWW ...why not head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see what it's all about? ..

Better late than never...nice to have a friend over! I made flowers at my next door neighbours tonight.
There is nothing better than having a good natter with a girlfriend and crafting at the same time.

Dolores said...

I await to see that little creature finished. I have been known to use a ball point pen to trace applique pieces. I don't think I have ever had any problems but then again, I don't think I used it on white.

I'm sometimes a late poster, so I like to make sure to "hop" from the end of the list sometimes. :-) Sounds like you had a fun time with your friend! My Mom came over to my house over the weekend and we made some Valentines and chatted and laughed. Good times.

I wish I could sew. Nope...not a stitch. I have been using double sided tape to hem a pair of pants for a few months now. Yup - pathetic! Ha!

Have fun!
