The Way It's Supposed to Be

Stitching the Afternoon Away

When we were up north last week, I brought along a lot of books, my knitting, and my Alabama Chanin t-shirt.

Mid-week, the weather took a rather nasty turn with thunderstorms and a severe temperature plunge.  Once the rain stopped, I bundled up in my hooded sweatshirt and a blanket and spent the afternoon out on our deck . . . stitching.

I had completed all the appliqué and cutting (this is reverse negative appliqué, in case you're interested in Alabama Chanin technique) on the front of the shirt before heading up,

 so all I needed to do was stitch the entire t-shirt together.

My new Wonder Clips really are a wonder!  They work like a charm -- so much better than pins on stretchy jersey fabric.

By the end of the afternoon . . . my t-shirt was whole!

And ready to wear!

I'm completely addicted.  (And . . . the sun came out again just as I finished up!  Bonus!)
