Merry Christmas, movie house! Merry Christmas, Emporium! Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!
--George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life
I'm glad this week's En Provence mystery clue involves making 3-1/2" half-square triangle units, because I get to start with leftover strips already cut for two other clues!
I'll use these til they're gone before cutting more.
I even managed to find three more purple fabrics that I overlooked before - or rejected for some reason.
Most things are worth a second look, eh?
I love it when my units come out the right size!
The tip Bonnie gave about holding the pointy end of the HST with your finger, rather than with a stiletto (or seam ripper) as I usually do, helped a lot. I got less wiggle at the end of the seam.
So I got 10 units sewn and ready for pressing, just enough to get my feet wet on the new step!
Santa rides tonight, look for him! Sew forth and sew on...
