    Very nice! I love the colors you chose. Very pretty and nice work. Now I have questions..

    Is that a pattern you can make using scraps? I am going to have to google how to do that, you have inspired me.

    I absolutely love your UFO. What brilliant use of colour, so bright & uplifting. Well Done.
    I've cut out plastic templates for braids but you've guessed it I've not put template to fabric yet :lol:

    Love your braid! I have a question for you. When I made a braid for a border, I found that it was difficult to gauge where to trim the edges. What did you use for a landmark to keep both sides even? It felt like it was getting wider on one side than the other. I'd love your tips and suggestions.

    To tell you the truth this was my frist braid I also did this by hand ( took it to work ). All I did was sew it in strips. then sewd the sprips together . My problem is evening them out on the top and botom.
