Needle-turn applique is my first love, but when you are trying to create quick samples, to demonstrate alternative colour combinations, then nothing beats the speedy method of fusible, raw-edge machine applique.
The past week and a half has been extremely stressful at our house, with a situation arising that none of us expected. It has now been resolved, and the outcome is pretty good, but it was a roller coaster that we would have preferred not to be on. Sewing around pretty shapes has been a therapy that was particularly calming, and just what I needed when I was too caught up in the “what-ifs” in my head.
What craft technique is your therapy of choice?
