Happy Anniversary

Celebrating one year of blogging!! Yeah!
Looking forward to another productive year!!
On another note.
I’ve got a question and have tried searching for this answer and now I’m turning to you guys because I’m stumped.
When making something out of knit, what type of fusible do you use?
I am not terminology savvy when it comes to different types of knits fusibles unless I’ve bought it pre-packaged and the name was on it already. I use pellon on my woven fabrics and I also have two different kinds of knit-like or stretchy fusibles that I use on my knit fabrics. The idea behind me using these were that I could allow the fabric to continue in it’s original state as well as be structured or have structure at the time. Now these fusibles I found at a discount fabrics stores years ago when they were “going of business” something they seem to say years later as well. They were sold by the bolt for either $1 or $2. The don’t have a name on them so I’m clueless as to what I’m using. One is a greyish color and the other is black. So I pick either one according to the color of my fabric. I love them but I’m just wondering what everyone uses and if I should be using something else.
Thanks for a great year and let’s get ready for another bumpy ride for 2009-2010!
Positive thought for today:
Allow Your Own Inner Light to Guide You
There comes a time when you must stand alone.You must feel confident enough within yourself to follow your own dreams.You must be willing to make sacrifices.You must be capable of changing and rearranging your priorities so that your final goal can be achieved.Sometimes, familiarity and comfort need to be challenged.There are times when you must take a few extra chances and create your own realities.Be strong enough to at least try to make your life better.Be confident enough that you won’t settle for a compromise just to get by.Appreciate yourself by allowing yourself the opportunities to grow, develop, and find your true sense of purpose in this life.Don’t stand in someone else’s shadow when it’s your sunlight that should lead the way.
