It’s 3:26am and I can’t sleep for the major thunderstorm that’s going on outside. I love a good storm, but they don’t lull me into sleep anymore, thanks to a hurricane named Ivan a few years ago that left me still loving storms but with a fear of their after-effects to the point that if it is dark outside and I can’t see that things are perfectly fine, there is no relaxing to be had. If you’ve gone through a major natural disaster (and who hasn’t these days?), you understand, I’m sure.
Happily, the Internet is working even though our satellite is not (cloud coverage, I think), so I was able to find some links for you. In the comments recently, someone asked for links to handstitching tutorials and I finally found some great ones for you:
Hand piecing a quilt
And if you are very new to sewing or new to rotary cutting (cutting fabric with a pizza-cutter-looking gadget), this rotary cutting tutorial may be helpful, too.
