The letters for the Boys of Noise are all done and connected together. I particularly like the M in Dream. I had quite a struggle with the accent on Reve but it turned out all right after a couple of tries. I am not sure about the asterisk. It may change to a star. I am dyeing some navy blue for the border. It looks great with the blue from True's name but I don't have enough of it. I am thinking a narrow red border and a wider blue one. I aslo need something at the ends of the True and Reve strip. Not sure about that yet either.
On another note, has anyone ever used that spray glue instead of pins for attaching the batting and backing? I had some in my hand the other day but at $25 a pop I decided to get some opinions before purchasing it. I don't usually like to buy things in aerosol cans if I can help it so that was another factor. However, anything that would eliminate pinning from my life would be a bonus.

that looks really great mum! i like the asterix. maybe you could put stars on each side. or a star in the middle and asterix on each side as they are a bit lighter? dunno. but it looks great, joe had a look at it and laughed and loved it. he didn't know you were making it and was impressed. He said you were going all "crazy and punky" heheh...

I haven't used the spray basting either, but I have heard that it is pretty smelly and can bother some folks who are sensitive to strong smells. Seems like a neat product though. Too bad it isn't available in a pump form, huh? I'm not big on aerosol either.

By the way, love the letters.

Before I got my longarm I was the spray all the time. I hated basting and found this to work really well. There is a smell, not to bad, what I found I didn't like is the residual. I sprayed and sandwitched on my hard wood floors and there was always a bit of sticky residue that just didn't seem to go away no matter how many times and what I used to wash the floor with.

The letters are all coming together wonderfully. I've never tried the spray baste so no help there.
