Dearest 1/4 inch Seam,
I think our relationship is on the mends. I know we had words. I know I yelled sewing obscenities at you and made your stitches cringe. Much to my chagrin I have to admit it was not your fault. It’s me, not you. Well maybe neither of us are at fault. I was relying on my blurry eyes and blue painter’s tape placed oh-so-not accurately at what I thought was the proper distance. What or who has given me a change of heart?
Well a wonderful PamKittyMorning
yelled insistedtold me I really needed to become a real quilterbuy a quarter inch presser foot. So I did! In fact, I bought two!. I credit her with saving our relationship. So you see darling 1/4 inch we now will have double the pleasure…. SEWING pleasure. I promise not to shout at you again. I may curse the thread but not you. Forgive me? I look forward to blissfully perfect scant quarter inchness with you.
With abundant perfect tension and 100% natural fiber love,
So yes dear reader, if you do not have a 1/4 inch patchwork presser foot… GET ONE. You too can enjoy the bliss.
Sew Mama Sew is asking what our favorite sewing tools are. Well my new one is, of course, the 1/4 inch foot. I also like to keep a soft bristle type hairbrush nearby to sweep up thread snippings. It is great to get them off carpeting too! BAD BAD sewist! You should not have carpet in your sewing area! I now have all wood floors… but it works for threads on the table, ironing board, etc. Just don’t brush your hair with it unless you like the look of threads dangling from your coif.
