Always seem to miss a bit!!!
This marking lark takes forever!!!
I did have a bit of a mad moment when I couldnt work out if the sewline chalk mech pencil had run out of chalk and if it had (it hadn't btw) how on earth do I replace the chalk? May be keeping those instructions aka packaging might have been a good idea....
I'm surprised how quickly it is all coming together tbh, I am almost quilted out from the centre to the narrow dotted border. Its a very heavy quilt, but lovely to snuggle under while sewing. Why snuggle? well I just can't seem to manage sitting up at a frame, either I'm expecting too much of a frame, or my arms are too short, or my back too vulnerable to aches? Perhaps a sitting and quilting at a frame lesson should be in my future, but for now I am a starting in the centre kinda girl. Major advantage to which is that I can ease the backing ever few inches and with my less than perfect basting (coughs~ that's pinning to you and me)that helps a lot.
PS my fingers hurt now :(
