Which Way?

I had a bit of spare time today so I pulled out a Layer Cake I've had for quite some time now. It was Just Wing It by MoMo for Moda Fabrics. I don't know why I haven't cut into it before now but I truly heart this line. 

So as I was putting blocks together and pressing, I wondered what all of you do. When it comes to pressing, I mean. 

Do you press all seams open? 

Do you press all your seams to the side?

Or do you mix and match? 

Me? I used to always press to the side. Always. Mostly because it was faster..lol! 

However, I've discovered that I really much more prefer pressing open. I feel that my seams lay flatter and my blocks square up better. It does take a bit longer to go about it this way, but my end results are so much cleaner. 

So now I'm a totally "Press Everything Open" kind of girl. ;)

Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!!!

Much Love!!!

Washi What?

Whoa...it's been a bit huh? I've been super busy with some stuff that I hope I can share with you very soon!! 

Until then, let me show you what I've been up to with that darned washi tape.  I've recently gotten bitten by that bug and its like Pringles. Once you pop, you can't stop...heehee! 

The first thing I plastered with Washi tape was my 3.5 year old Mac Book Pro. The top had gotten a bit scratched in his years so I gave him a girly makeover.  He didn't seem to mind...too much. :)  I love how it turned out!! 

After that I went on a hunt for something else to cover. I found 3 wooden frames and instantly knew I wanted to cover those too!! I covered all three and decided to put quotes in them and hang in my sewing room. I've only gotten one filled with a quote so I will show you that one for now, but when I have all three up in my room, I will show you the final result. 

What do you do with your Washi tape??!! 

Dear Pick Your Plum...will you PLEASE do another day of Washi tape??! Two haven't been enough to satisfy my thirst for this sticky stuff! ;)

Much Love!!!
