Now, I know we will see alot of blocking during the NFL playoffs this afternoon, but this is not the kind of blocking I am talking about today! I'm talking about the kind of blocking you do to square up your stitching project.
I have completed the stitching on Sherri Jones' Garden Variety Long Pocket for a class I am taking from her in two weeks. In her instructions, she recommends blocking the pocket piece. This makes me nervous! I hesitate when it comes to spraying silk threads!
Well, I've taken the plunge! This morning I placed my piece face down, pinned it to my June Tailor Cut 'n Press Board and sprayed away! I am a tight stitcher. So, I know I will need to repeat this blocking several times!
Do you ever block your stitched pieces? Sherri didn't recommend ironing to a square position.
I'll keep you informed on how it turns out!
