Putting together the binding for the not-so-quick quilt, using cut pieces of the all too many fat quarters I have stashed.  I managed to burn my fingertip today, so sewing isn’t going terribly fast.

  1. You know, in German it’s pretty funny to say “I’m addicted to fabric”, because fabric=Stoff=word for drugs
    BTW, I love sulky. I used it long before I had my embroidery machine for transfering embroidery patterns onto fabric.

  2. Hee. Might as well be a drug, I have a, uh, *lot* fabric, and keep buying it. I have a lot of sulky in the house too, the tear-away and the permanent, that stuff is a life saver when it comes to embroidery, I’ve just never used any of their water soluble.

  3. Sorry for being unclear, I especially meant the water soluble. Just make sure you rinse it out v.e.r.y. w.e.l.l. Because if you don’t everything gets sticky as soon as it gets moist.

  4. Yeah, it there are some tricks involved with soluble. When doing the free standing lace stuff with the machine I don’t want all of it gone because it gives stability, but when using it as a topper or for transfering patterns it needs to go all out.

  5. Yeah, I’ve seen that lace stuff, it’s gorgeous, but not something I could do by hand (and wouldn’t want to try, either!). Yes, this all has to go, completely, and I’ve been a bit worried about it.

  6. Oh, I know people who do Ochi or other forms of lace. It’s gorgeous, but not something I would do either. No patiece at. all.

  7. When I was young, one of my great grandmothers taught me the basics of tatting, all of which is completely forgotten now. She could make the most beautiful lace by hand. I get frustrated enough by stuff that doesn’t go fast, lace making I don’t need!

  8. My grandma used to crotched lace around hankies which she would take with her if she went to an “event”.
