bad workman or his tools


























while I was edging the patchwork pincushions I remembered a hook I had seen that was designed to do exactly what I was doing
I ordered one and it came today
it certainly has a sharp end!!!
but it isn't for the type of fabric I'm using at the moment
no matter how I try to get it through it either won't go or it gets caught on the way back
and it ripped the thread and pulled it
so glad I tried on a scrap first
brain must be functioning for a change!!! 
so I'll go back to the old fashioned way of starting the edge
with a needle and thread and the blanket stitch
I am sure that I will use the new hook at some point
find the perfect thing





bbbbbbbbbooooooooooooooo!!!!



found these on the camera
the last one was the last temp recorded before the storms came through and cleared it out

:{

do you draw things you're trying to make
I wasted some fabric trying to remember how to make a 
log cabin block
I was close
but as they say
t'was no cigar
so I drawed it!!!
:):):)
 and now I can do it
well I'll do it once I finished the
patches
patch patch patch

hope all are well

see you around the interwebs peoples

I've seen where others have ordered that punching hook and found that it gave poor results. Sometimes the old way is the best way. Since returning from vacation, I'm feeling rather out of it, not getting much done, except laundry. :) Have a great day! Tammy

It must be the tools at fault. It cannot be you :) Mia S
