I’ve started to put Christmas away and it seems Santa forgot something. I thought it would be a good daily painting.
In addition to painting, I stitched. I’m learning to do pojagi stitching which I’ve talked about before. Today I finished my first square. It’s a lot of scrap fabric which meant I got a lot of practice doing the seam. Things I’ve learned along the way:
1. My old trusty Singer is in need of a good cleaning.
2. I really do need to learn to cut straight in order to do a good pojagi seam.
3. Life would be easier with a stitch in the ditch foot so I ordered one for my Viking. So far haven’t found one that will fit the old Singer.
I do like the quilt look and the fact that it’s a single layer (both sides are finished) so it has many uses. Originally I said I thought it was like the French seam my mother used; however, the more I look at it I think it’s more like a flat felled seam. I’m going to have to look that up and compare. Meanwhile, if the snow clears up I’m off to the fabric store with my machine.
