This comment has to do with your tip about dart tips. Looking at that dart, I thought, that’s going to be quite a pointy one. I have a tip for keeping darts from being quite so pointy. As you’re sewing the dart, aim as if the dart is supposed to end about 3/8″ short of where the end dot is. Then when you get within about 1/4″ of this shortened dart end, turn gently to the real end.


WOW! I’m honored to have my peacock Hazel included alongside some other amazing makes this month! Thanks so much! I love seeing these roundups. It’s inspiring to see everyone’s take on the patterns. :)


Love the blue and orange Laurels. Theýre beautiful !

Julia Bobbin

plantar fasciitis

It should be combined with all of the above stretches.
That would certainly be annoying, not to mention unproductive.
The pain from plantar fasciitis is described as being dull,
aching or sharp (all three for me) and can usually be reproduced by flexing the toes
upwards and tensing the fascia.
