To get me back on track I decided to start making the EPP blocks for the "Queen of Prep Folder" that I purchased from Shiralee Stitches. I found this fussy cutting to be far less stressful and also realised that using a glue pen was essential for realigning miscalculations rather than undoing thread basting. However, my discovery was short lived when I had to refill the pen. It was a hot day and as I was inserting the new glue stick it melted and broke off. I have yet to buy more refills so there is still a lot of thread basting happening. These fabrics are not my usual taste but they were in the kit and it is nice to try something a bit different occasionally.
Last week I made a spontaneous decision to go and visit my youngest daughter for a few days up town. She was home for the week after resigning from her very stressful job so we had a wonderful time catching up. On Tuesday we went into the city which I haven't visited for at least a decade. I wanted to see the famous L'uccello vintage haberdashery store while I was there . I must admit I was a little disappointed as I thought there would be more things but I did find some fabrics. I love the old fashioned paper bag .
I hope you are having some lovely stitching days.
