kidgiddy I'm so excited about my second #paperpiecing pattern. I think I'm making a whole bunch of these #buoys - they are so quick and cute. #iamaddicted to buoys! 19h

kidgiddy My sticky notes were out of control so I found some awesome keyboard note pads from @fallindesign ...one with graph paper (for mini paper piecing doodles while working). I'm pretty sure my graphic design husband will approve... #maybehewontnoticethebill 22h

kidgiddy The really tedious but necessary step in #stuffedanimal prep... #clippingandnotching #sewingtales 4d
  •   argyle24 @ruthrowe that's genius! Thanks! 4d
  •   kidgiddy @ruthrowe thank you so much. Means the world to me! I def use pipe cleaners in the antennae but hadn't used them in the legs. So fun! Just don't use any if the lobster is for a baby or child. @argyle24 4d
  •   kidgiddy @argyle24 can't wait to see yours! 4d
  •   argyle24 @kidgiddy ooh. The lobster is for a baby...but will likely sit on a shelf. No pipe cleaners then? 4d
  •   kidgiddy I wouldn't - even momentary photo opps can be hazardous. @argyle24 4d
  •   argyle24 @kidgiddy any suggestions to add some safe structure to the antennae? (I'm so glad the convo stream led to this, otherwise I would've pipe-cleanered all the limbs!) 4d
  •   kidgiddy @argyle24 if you don't do any pipe cleaners - I would just not stuff the antennae at all and maybe even shorten them by a third or 50%. They will be ok to be floppy. If you want something - stuff very little. Do you have a stuffing fork? You can get one from @heatherbailey - there is a reg and a mini. They will work wonders for the legs! 4d

kidgiddy Rarely ever use a #thimble but binding a mini requires it. Do you use one? Have any favorites? 6d
  •   2littlebanshees A little but one that sticks on the end of my finger with double sided tape, best thimble ever! 6d
  •   wwwindylou My fingertips are apparently too fat to properly wear a thimble, so I use the self- adhesive leather thimble pads. 6d
  •   nicoledbless I use a leather one. 6d
  •   joaniessweetstitches Yes, can't hand sew without one. I use the small flat round leather adhesive. Best ever! 6d
  •   mommysnaptime I do. I dont sew by hand often, bit when I do I use a leather thimble (it has a metal spot inside at the tip). Theyre a bit more expensive, but come in a few sizes. 5d
  •   alexouq I tried many as I need them for binding, for me the Clover Protect and Grip thimble in pink is absolutely the best!!! It never slips and is airy the same time @kidgiddy ! 5d

kidgiddy Ain't no party like a #GlueBaste partay! @cristycreates I freaking LURV it! It's making my binding by hand so much easier. Love you long time lady! #gluebasting 7d
  •   sgthings 7d
  •   kidgiddy @m3_quilts lol! This is true - my fitbit tells all. 7d
  •   nicolebaring Glue?!? Tell me! I only hand bind so I'm curious. 7d
  •   nybor5885 @kidgiddy watch thrift stores for a travel iron they work great 7d
  •   nanabecca What?!? I'm with @nicolebaring. 6d
  •   kidgiddy @nicolebaring @nanabecca you get some really fine glue tips from @cristycreates and some straight up basic Elmer's glue. Put a little dab of glue on and press with an iron. She does quilting, paperless paper piecing, etc by glue basting it, and the possibilities are endless! It's great because it keeps your points and seams lined up too. You have to try it! 6d
  •   nanabecca Thanks! Such an awesome technique. 6d
  •   nicolebaring Thanks for sharing ! 5d

kidgiddy So I'm fudging all this quilting stuff - this is similar to what I have seen people tag as #nestedchurndash - but how do you think it looks? Does it work? I've tried multiple options and so far like this the best. #wannabequilter lol! #makeaquiltmakeafriend #schnitzelandboominiquiltswap 1w
