2-Cent Tuesday

Hello Friends, I hope you have been well! The weather at my end has been simply gorgeous, and to the relief of my entire family, our rose bushes are blooming again! I started bringing in the “almost” spent blooms into the house to encourage further flowering on the bushes.


Because I have a small cutting area, I like to cut pieces from smaller pieces of my background fabric when working on a quilt. I generally work off a 1/4-3/8y of background fabric. That way, I don’t have to deal with a large length of fabric on my cutting table. Now that might mean needing more background fabric in the end, so I always factor in an extra 1/4-3/8y just to be safe. This little trick might come in handy for you if you have a hobbit-sized sewing room, like I do!

That’s my two cents for today — now it’s your turn to share yours!

Have a lovely rest of your week — I am going to “Just Kitten Around”. Pattern in my Etsy Shop. Link below.

  1. Oooh! I love your roses, positively stunning! 🌷 Good idea to cut off small pieces of background fabric; “sew” much easier to work with. 😃

  2. You know I’m swooning over your cabinet full of those blue dishes. :) Pretty how the pink showcases so nicely with them. Happy day to you and yours!

  3. You win for the most beautiful blog post I’ve seen this week!! Those stunningly gorgeous flowers deserve to be preserved with photos, paintings and anything possible. The china with them is perfection. I don’t know if I could cut those because I would want them to last as long as possible.
