Question for you.....do you use washaway stabilizer? If so, what brand works well? I have some 'Unique' and it will not dissolve no matter what I do. Obviously not what you want after you've spent several hours creating something and then can't get the stabilizer out!! Over to you....opinions please....
Yes, today there is nothing but mumblings because I got nuttin'. You do NOT want to see a picture of my pile of addressed Christmas cards - you do NOT want to see gift wrapped presents - you do NOT want to see all the little things I managed to actually DO over the past couple of days because there is not one single thing that isn't yawn-worthy.
- THESE are quite pretty - you'll need to use the translate feature for the pattern although I think it can be done just from the pictures alone.
- Have a look at the amazing quilts made by THIS artist! You'll have to click on the pictures to advance to the next one in his gallery.
- THIS is a really cute little CAL that some of you might like to play along with.
- Mary Corbet posted a notice about THIS and some of you might find it interesting.
- THIS is a cute Christmas project that would use up scraps from your stash - or could be made in non-Christmas fabrics for use any time of the year. And while you're there check out the rest of her Christmas-themed tutorials HERE.
- There's a detailed how-to HERE for building a gingerbread house. OR if you'd prefer to make one out of felt, how about THIS? And for further inspiration, check out THIS Pinterest board.
I've never used stabilizer. Fabrics that need it scare me.ReplyDelete
Love the cat photo. lol
I want to use it to create my own fabric out of teeny little scraps. I had some perfect washaway stabilizer but the label has been long lost and of course I don't know what brand it was.Delete
Yes, there is s much to be thankful for. Love the links dear. Congratulations on being ahead of the Christmas RUSH.ReplyDelete
We have to really remember to be thankful during the present times. Some days it's really hard but we'll get there.Delete
My word, what a fantastic quiltmaker Bruce Seeds is. Plenty of choices for Christmas crafts- I'm thinking of gingerbread felt houses.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I think men are more creative than women - perhaps because they haven't had generations of it in their genes and have no preconceived notions. Either way, his work is amazing!Delete
He's amazing! Would love to see his work in person.Delete
I've actually thought I should ask you about stabilizer experience (under embroidery) - so I got nothun'. I hope some peeps respond to your question. You underestimate how exciting (or perhaps inspiring is the word) your piles of accomplishments can be, friend. ;^) Seriously.ReplyDelete
I use several different types of stabilizers for embroidery but most often just a piece of an old bed sheet works for my purposes. Glad you find some inspiration in my playing (mucking?) about!Delete
I haven't really used any wash-aways.. one day when I get my embroidery machine going! Thanks for sharing all those lovely links! xxReplyDelete
You're welcome for the links Joy - hope you found something of interest.Delete
I haven’t used wash always, so sorry, no help to you there!ReplyDelete
You lost me at the first link, with the crochet - very nice, thank you!
Great links thanks, Mary Anne!
Oh dear - I don't want to lose you! Please come back!! Glad you found something in the links that was interesting anyway.Delete
