The Yak is a type of cow that lives in Tibet and parts of China, high up in the mountains, where the air is ‘thin’. But they have a large lung capacity, allowing them to inhale large amounts of oxygen. Yak milk makes good cheese, low in fat, and apparently very tasty!
Y is also for Y seams, those oh-so-difficult set-in seams that are so necessary in some quilts.
Honestly, I avoid these at all cost! I’ve yet to do these successfully. But just in case there’s somebody out there that would want to tackle these, I found a site with a tutorial for how to hand-sew these seams. And looking at this, I just might be able to do this. So, if you’re looking for a tutorial, just follow this link to Sentimental Stitches.
Happy Y-seams! Blessings, Peg
