And I am so glad I did......it was suprisingly therapeutic getting back to this BOM and actually I am glad I did take so long because I am using Sue Daley's bottom line thread which I only purchased recently.
This thread is 60wt and so very fine. Perfect for this project. The stitches are so tiny, they are seemingly invisible.
Of course, because the thread and needle are so fine, I can't do without my Clover needle threader.
Here is my other secret weapon. They are not scissors, but some kind of surgical clamp. Some specialist quilt shops sell them so I didn't have to masquerade as a Surgeon to buy them.
The crimped tweezer like ends of these clamps are great for gripping the paper templates so pulling them out after stitching is a breeze.
I don't think it will be difficult to finish this block this week as I just can't put this project down at the moment.
I hope you have had as much fun with needle and thread today!
