So like a rabid Michelle Bridges I went to work on her weight problem. Like Kelly I had trouble with selecting and exchanging 'like for like' items. I had saved this great item to put in but it weighed over 300g and that was 100g over what I had already chosen. It would have put Sasha over the limit for sure. With some rethinking and tweaking, I eventually came up with a selection.
What I took out
3 FQs - cute country quilty print, one reproduction Windham, one pale brown floral
1 variegated purple thread - not a colour in my thread stash
1 quarter inch quilter's tape - never tried this but it has to be better than masking tape eh?
1 turning tool - I may find this very useful for future Zakka projects
1 finger seam presser - helpful for paper piecing
1 packet of anti-slip ruler dots - I was hoping a packet of these would slip through the cracks to me.
1 embroidery pattern called 'Dragonflies' - my mum would like this style
1 embroidery book - also for my mum
What I put back in
5 skeins of embroidery floss
1 packet of small metal make-your-own fabric buttons
2 packets of large make-your-own fabric buttons
1 packet of long quilter's pins
1 pkt seam rippers
