I hope I can live up to your confidence in me.
But someone should have ratted me out. It's been bothering me for a few days now - I think I kinda sounded like a sewing snob when I said that you should be a confident sewer before you tried this idea. Well, I thought it sort of sounded snobby to say that.
So I thought it might be a good idea to revisit what I said. I AM a confident sewer - when I am working for myself, have an idea burning my biscuits - I just blaze into it with both feet. Sometimes I don't fully think things through though. And that is what happened in this project where I ended up not having the additional inches for framing on the outside linen pieces. So, flying by the seat of my pants I decided that in the end I will add a border to make up for that. It was a good save - as I call it. But, I don't think a confident AND competent sewer would have made the mistake in the first place. Fortunately, I've never made a mistake like this when sewing for someone else. I think everything through, nine ways to Sunday before my scissors ever touch a thing; usually I do a little blow up sketch which is what I should have done for AotH. Live and Learn! And if I sounded snobby in any way, I am really, really sorry.
I have no progress to show, so will leave you with this:
