Sew & Tell Friday
"Love is in the Air" IS finished and ready to mail to Norway for the February Swap Til You Drop (STUD), but I can't show it to you yet! However, I CAN show you this cool & easy way to display those minis-- Fast Finish Triangles! I've seen this around the blogosphere, but the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative has a great tutorial here. It's so easy to add some small triangles to each corner when you sew on the binding. Then simply add a dowel across the top and hang your mini just like a picture!
You can also weigh down the lower edge if necessary OR use a lower triangle as your label. (The pink paper is just so you can see the triangle.)
Are you ready for the Olympics? We love watching all the Olympics at our house--from figure skating to skiing to curling--the spirit of the Olympics is just contagious. And to justify all that couch time, I've been digging out all my yarn and getting it ready for some hooky crochet fun.
I should have at least a dozen dishcloths and part of a sweater by the time the Olympics are finished! What is your favorite part of the Olympics?
Come back Sunday for a special giveway--in an effort to simplify my stash, I'll be giving away some fabric selections every Sunday for a month. You never know what might be up for grabs! And check out Amy's Sew & Tell Friday for more great finishes.
- The Olympics--go TEAM USA!
- Chili & cornbread for supper
- Great Middle School Band concert with the cutest bass/trumpet player on the planet--even if he has to wear that uniform.
