Tips and Tutorials on the 22 #17

Welcome to the 17th edition of Tips and Tutorials on the 22nd! Last month I asked about the format and the results were mixed. I somehow lost a lot of sew-jo over the last month and really felt like I slowed down. Anyway, the results were more in favor of seeing the tips and tutorials together. I decided I would do a picture and caption link to make it very simple. Do remember, I will post these to on my my Pinterest Tips/Tutorials Board!

And, as for me, I will be writing a some tips about UFOs after I go over all the comments on my giveaway here. You should see it in a few days. As for me, I have been a little slow to move this month – no good reason – but I feel the energy and desire to blog/sew coming back.

Curated Tutorials for May:

    I believe everyone has fluctuations in their energy levels – just take it easy and don’t feel pressured to be prolifically writing and sewing. That seems to take the fun out of it as it starts to feel like a chore.
    This is a great bundle of tips and tutes. Thanks also for sharing Preeti’s QAL for Mercyful Quilts – I am grateful for the shout-out!! Have a great weekend Kathleen!
