I finally have all my blocks done, after a few minor mishaps. I got almost all of my background pieces cut out and sewed 4 blocks, only to find I had done 3 of them without bobbin thread. And on pressing one of the blocks, I discovered the fabric was not, in fact, cotton. I discovered it when the fabric shredded and melted! But in the end, I have made it to the paper removal stage, and the paper is coming off without too much difficulty. I haven’t had to use the tweezers yet! I am watching Midsomer Murders and removing paper tonight. All in all, not a bad way to spend the night!
