Where have you been all my life? from Terificreations's Weblog

I have fallen in love. The Sizzix Big Shot Pro arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago. After taking it out of the box, and opening the box with the dies, changing locations twice, it sat there humming a little tune looking for my attention. Well, it’s mechanical, it doesn’t really hum. You’re a … Continue reading Where have you been all my life?

“How do you get from here to there?” she asked. I promised to show her. When stitching on a pieced block, the ditch is your bestie. The ribbon candy ended at the peak, to start the next wedge there are two options: stop, tie off the thread, then restart in the next wedge. A viable … Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month Part 3

So this happened a Sizzix Big Shot Pro. It’s waiting for me to cut big hexies for a project, which is part of some magazine work that needs to happen.

July Quilted Block of the month part 2 from Terificreations's Weblog

Last week we focused on the “bones” also known as stitching in the ditch. When you’re working on a quilt it’s not a “have to do” rather, it’s a good thing to do. When working on something like @play the bones get stitched as these would be the ditch in a pieced quilt top. Finer … Continue reading July Quilted Block of the month part 2

The Sewing Room Vortex – Character Counts from Terificreations's Weblog

Often when I tell the story of 49 Pieces of Chocolat the focus is on the what not to do with wool  batting or the sewing room … Continue reading The Sewing Room Vortex – Character Counts

I got a Thank You note the other day from Terificreations's Weblog

This note is an honest-to-goodness handwritten note card saying thank you for the postcards. I sent two, one to keep and one to give. And honestly, if someone chose to give the postcard I sent, that’d be fine with me. It’s a gift, no strings attached. Oh, perhaps I’d better rephrase that…no expectations of keeping. … Continue reading I got a Thank You note the other day

A wee nip o’character from Terificreations's Weblog

This one section of the Quilted Block of the Month that starts on Saturday. I just want to point out that my lines aren’t perfect. Sometimes when quilting I get to thinking about things, or looking through the wrong part of my lenses. If, and only IF this were a competition quilt I’d rip that … Continue reading A wee nip o’character

I meant to do this, but did that instead from Terificreations's Weblog

and the results were very good. But first your daily ear worm: This (Friday) day started with great intention: turn on the a/c in the sewing room and quilt. In order to achieve this great goal I needed to step down into the office for a bit to send a few emails. The business cards … Continue reading I meant to do this, but did that instead

Here’s to new beginnings from Terificreations's Weblog

For a long time Linda Poole posted a Color Fix at the end of each blog post.  I’ve blogged about how much they’ve inspired me. I find stitching like this just fun. It’s a good way to figure out what a thread does, and approximate tension settings for said thread. Then there’s batting, I can explore … Continue reading Here’s to new beginnings
