Video: Curved Crosshatching in a Triangle

In my previous post on Curved Crosshatching in a Triangle, I said I wasn't going to post the video as it it was too long, boring and rambly. But at least two of you encouraged me to post it anyway, one of them being Leah Day, so here it is:


 Enjoy. (Or not!) :-) 

We're recovering from our "Polar Vortex" and our house was nice and cozy. Others have not been so fortunate. Burst pipes at a friend's house and at the sewing machine shop where I've been helping out one day a week.

The kids and I filled some balloons with water and let them freeze overnight, for some round ice "decorations". I tried to blow some bubbles to see if we could get them to freeze before they popped, with some fleeting success. Alas, no pictures!

  7. You could put a line of 1/4" masking tape from the edge in on the underside of the curved ruler. This would give you a 1/4" marking to help with positioning. Or even other widths of tape for say 1/2" spacing.

    1. I do use tape quite often (I love painter's tape) to mark rulers and such, but a laser marking would be so much better.
