Duckie box...

Some of you were asking about the cute duckie under my fabrics... It isn't part of the design! It was the lid of my sewing box. This is the box I transport itty bitty stuff in, like little pencils, erasers, seamripper, pins, measuringtape etc etc, when going places. Nice and compact and totally cute!!



No sea photo today.. went out without my camera... Sorry, as it was an amazing view first thing... The rising sun glistening on the sea, whipped up in winds gusting 50 mph, the white horses white in the sunlight, the sea in varying shades of the darkest blue right through to emerald and lighter green.. Ran out of battery, tired, up at 4am when a window started banging.. and not got back to sleep...

Cut out some fabric on the doll quilt and tried to sew it together... I have only one word for you... CURVES... oh no, and another three... TIGHT POINTY CORNERS... Not having done those before... what WAS I thinking??? You should see my tryouts... or maybe no... better not, lol!! Oh well... sigh... trying again.. Practice makes perfect, yes? :-)

Have you got a pair of pinking scissors? That's what I use to cut out the curves and it really works for me.
Good luck!

It is quite a cute box and perfect for what you are making too!! But I love curves. I think when you get the hang of it, you will be in love with it totally!!

I haven't tried curves yet - pinking shears sounds intriguing and I guess Maria is probably right! Juliex
