So, a few things today. The first is that I've been a little blah lately. I didn't get much sewing done this weekend and what I did I can't show anyone yet, just in case someone is reading my blog. I only sewed two strips onto one bento block and didn't even bother to press the seams. That's how blah I am. I love pressing seams!
Before I forget, maybe you've seen this already but if you haven't and you, like me, can't throw a piece of fabric away unless it's smaller than, say, 3/4" or something, check out this quilt tutorial. It's a fast and easy way to use up even the tiniest scraps of fabric. The piecing method is also useful for log cabins and, well, a lot of other blocks. Also, if you hate cutting fabric, this method is where it's at!
Also, would you like to see a gratuitous picture of me? We haven't been properly introduced yet.
Also, do you want to hear some advice my mom gave me a few years ago? No matter how little you like having your picture taken or how much you hate looking at pictures of yourself, there will come a day when you'll appreciate having photos of yourself when you're young. Young is relative, of course, and it's never too late to start...so maybe today is the day to take a picture of yourself so you can look back at your youth and remember how sweet it was. That's my plan anyway...
