Day 4…TWEEZERS-now this NEEDFUL things was recently given to me as a gift, Thanks Jakey!… I recently have finished some wool appliqué projects that have some tiny pieces…these tweezers tremendously aided in moving around, tucking and placing those appliqué pieces just right. One of my friends says she cannot do tiny wool appliqué…she states: “My fingers are like sausages…they can’t work with those tiny appliqués”…Well…this is just what is needed. A stiletto is fine for moving…but sometimes you need to lift one shape to tuck under another and that is why I love the tweezer…It is also handy for picking out those threads from ripped seams, when the rubber thingy doesn’t pull them out..look at how sharp those points are!!!……now this tweezer is very reasonably priced at $8.50…on Sale for $6.80. Click HERE if you NEED to order one for yourself…
and I love the black..It so sleek and sexy and feels good in your hands. I also have made this little nifty 3 compartment carrier for my 5″ DOVO SCISSORS, by tweezers and my NEEDLE THREADER for peele cotton. Now Everythings is nice and handy…I will have a pattern for this carrier in an up coming- book about WOOL! Hopefully it will be out for Spring Market.
I will be adding the Tweezer to my class supply lists as it is a handy tool…especially if we have sausage fingers…lol…For a chance to win this lovely tweezer tell me who your 3 favorite quilt pattern/fabric designers are? Do you pay attention to that or not? If someone asked you right now what quilt you are piecing or wool project your are stitching would you be able to tell them?
I’m a little tired from the party last night…so will post about that tomorrow… here is a peek at my “ugly ornament”…made in the last 5 minutes before leaving for the party…I found an old kitchen sponge under the sink…wacked it off with my rotary cutter and inserted the “trunk” which gave it a nice modern feel…and then added some perle cotton for a hanger…I know we are all busy running around doing Christmas stuff…have a great day.
