  1. I loved the link to that post on sewing with quilting cotton. I go back and forth on using it all the time because I love prints and the prints are just so great sometimes. I also want some crazy clothes now and then, which I can definitely achieve with quilting cotton, even if it’s not the most “fashion forward “ substrate, so thanks for that.

  2. Sorry to lower the tone but I have to ask, do you Canadians use “fanny” like they do in the US, or like we do in the UK? Because over here it does not mean ass/arse, it means vagina. So “fanny pack” makes me do a double-take every time! We call that accessory a bum bag.

    1. Haha, thank you for pointing this out, Nina! We don’t use it the same way here. It means arse here, but it isn’t a very widely used word. We pretty much only say it in this context, ‘fanny pack’. Bum bag is arguably a much more fun name for it, though!
