Hello Dear Reader,
I’ve had great fun tonight, I’ve been ironing and cutting up shirts! I’ve also learnt how to make pin wheels. I’ve never been to classes and have learnt it the frugal 2012 way……….from blogs, websites and You Tube. Here’s the tutorial I found to make these.
I’ve got lots of smaller pieces of fabric that I just can’t waste and it will be fun to have a no specific colour but a quilt all in pin wheels. I started by cutting 5″ squares and the end result, with seams, is an 8″ by 8″ square. Who knows where this is all going? Free motion quilting………..I can but dream.
Sorry about the quilty blogs, but we still have long dark nights and I like to be purposeful in the evenings. I listen to a play on the radio or a concert on Radio 3 whilst I sew.
So, with this very short blog, I’ll hand this over to you. What have you learnt to do the 2012 frugal way? Dearly Beloved learnt how to replace the motor on the Dyson from a You Tube tutorial. Have you ever watched and learnt and then tried it?
