A good few month ago Heather Ross had a studio sale, which I totally forgot to blog about and will at some point remember to do so I can share the goodies with you! So yes as I was saying Heather Ross + Sale basically means I'll be there...and I was with bells and whistles on :) ordered my bits and sat back happily in the knowledge that pretty fabric would be coming through my post box. Then I got an email saying sorry but everything was taking a little longer than anticipated but to make it up to people Ms Ross was reissuing some prints on Spoonflower...Hmmm yummy! So thankful for the opportunity to get some OOP fabric and a gift for him in doors all in one go I headed over to Spoonflower and ordered a couple of FQ's (and if you believe that you'll believe anything!) The timing was not good. Spoonflower were running an offer so shipping was lagging but I ordered regardless (Well wouldn't you?) and I waited some more. On the 23rd of December my Heather Ross package arrived (and yes I was over the moon!) and time went on. By January I thought I had better check on the Spoonflower order, yeah I'm rather chilled about delivery times, so I emailed and a lovely response came though in under 24 hours...small reality check for me here - They are on the other side of the planet and as much as I would love to shop with them all the time I can't or I'd be swiftly single! So these guys basically owe me not a lot. However they went beyond great and really made me smile, they ran a reprint for me and shipped it signed for. I got it, taking time zones into account, in 5 days and it was perfect. I don't know many companies that will do that and as you guys know I like to shout about good customer service so this is me shouting a big *Thank You* To Spoonflower and incase your wondering this is the Heather Ross print I ordered :)
Next up is the me needing help part of the post, Hollie if you're reading this look away now!
People I can't sew Yseams for toffee! I have googled and YouTubed and this is what keeps happening -
Can anyone tell me what the heck I'm doing wrong?!? I leave the seam open 1/4" from the end, it's the part when I'm turning the fabric with the needle down and foot up that it goes all problem child on me. Any thoughts, advice or even commiseration's will cheer me up right now as I'm at the point of doing damage with a seam ripper!
Hope your sewing is going better than mine :)
