Someone suggested this tip for cutting triangles, and I am posting it here. It’s a lifesaver for me as my hands really get a workout when stitching lots of triangles. This tip works not only for cutting triangles but also other shapes that are the same shape and will be stitched. You can layer the fabric before fanfolding it onto your die and the shapes will be ready to stitch when they are fresh off the die. Here are a couple of photos to illustrate what I mean.
School’s out – yay! Last night we had a big celebration with Kes’s 13th birthday and Ezri’s graduation from Middle School. It was the best meal I’ve cooked in years thanks to Stouffer’s five cheese lasagne and macaroni and cheese. We added broccoli and rolls and Mrs. Smith’s Dutch apple pies and all I had to do was set the table. I’m not much of a cook but I did season the broccoli as my six-year old grandson instructed and everything was a hit.
Our puppy spent the day with the grandchildren, and she was exhausted when she got home. She weighs 28 pounds now. We got her at 8 pounds five weeks ago so she is tracking quite well at 3-4 pounds a week. Just look at those big feet. It’s going to take a lot more growing to fit into them.
