Now you see that the windows and upper side pillars have been added. Still nothing is attached to the interfacing. The pins are holding the windows to the yellow building fabric.
Now I am moving into the bottom section of the building and I have a decision to make. The arches in the front of the building will extend into the yellow fabric. Do I cut those arches out of the yellow fabric and add fabric behind, or do I cut the arches out of the interior fabric and put them on top? I could do either and probably either would work, but I am kind of particular about layering my fabric in the same order that the parts of the building are actually layered. So I cut the arches out of the yellow fabric and the deep purpley shadowed fabric will go behind the arches.
The thread that I ordered from Connecting Threads came today.
And, before I sign off here, here's something that blew my mind. One of the commenters on the Threads post said that Sharon Schamber recommends dipping your entire spool of thread in mineral oil, then quickly drying it off to keep the thread from drying out and so it produces less lint. This sounded really crazy to me, but with just enough logic to it to intrigue me. I googled it and found several mentions of Sharon's recommendation. Here is one of them. (This particular "tip" is toward the bottom of the blog post.) Have you heard of this? Have you tried it? I'm going to try it on a spool that is nearly used up! I think dipping sounds really messy. Maybe a little oil in a little squeeze bottle with a fine tip spout? I wonder if this is basically the same idea? I've never used it either.
