Friday afternoon saw me sewing for Friday Night With Friends. I had purchased a fabric panel from a lady at the Bassendean Markets the previous weekend.It was a Nutex Alphabet panel. I got it as I wanted to make it for Jacob and give it to him on the weekend.
Then I noticed each and every panel piece had been printed not on the grain of the fabric at all. There is a long dotted line that marks the centre of each page.
For the rest of Friday Night With Friends I continued working on making some hexagon's for my hexagon quilt.
Special mention must go to Cheryll who kindly is the host for this sewing night.
Ever wondered what to do with all those cotton reels? I discovered this lovely lady at a exhibition in Kalamunda on the weekend. She is selling for $6000 I think the lady must want to keep it!
I 'm being very patient at the moment. Last week I decided it was time to rust some fabric. A few pieces of metal were found around the place. I wrapped up three different pieces of Homespun in rusty horseshoes, a nail and a piece of metal which you can see in the photo. The Homespun was wet with a mix of 50/50 water and vinegar and has been left in a plastic bag for the rusting to take place.
Edited Thursday 10th July.
Received a email from Nutex yesterday, they are going to replace the Panel. Thanks so much Nutex.
