Happy Birthday Mama.
November 21, 1954
My mama is my number one supporter of all my handwork and projects.
She wanted to see her pillow today even though it is not finished.
That was cool with me.
I no longer feel pressured to finish it by tomorrow.
I can take my time to do it right like Mr. Rogers taught me.
(I am trying to teach this to Oliver, Freya, and Chris).
Many sewers may know this threading/knotting trick.
But for novice sewers it is very helpful.
I call it the no knot knot.
Thread the needle with both raw ends through the eye.
Catch a small bit of fabric and pull the thread through the loop.
Your thread is now anchored to the fabric without fussing with tying a knot.
