Yesterday I spent most of the day in my sewing room (which makes me happy) working on a few WIPs and finishing a little happy for a special friend!
|Glimpse of the back|
I can only give you a peek since it's a surprise. Shhh...don't tell.
There is quite a bit of white in this project and just as I was about to give the entire finish a final pressing, I noticed my iron had melted the top of one of my glass jars. Don't know how that happened.
|Major obstacle to finishing|
Thankfully I noticed the sticky goop in time. With all that white, what a mess that would have been. Since this is the only iron I own, out I went to buy some iron cleaner AND a new iron. I am pretty sure I cleaned off all the residue, but I wasn't taking any chances with this gift, so I used the NEW iron!
|Old photo, but you get the idea|
I didn't take any updated pictures, but I joined several rows of the baby chevron quilt. I like to work on more than one project at a time. Don't ask me why.
|Playing with paper and fabric|
I've been wanting to make cards with small snippets of fabric, and I finally played around with that. I used an old needle and made sure my stitch length was longer, but I still need to work on the tension.
|Good to remember|
I've shown this photo before, but sometimes I need the reminder.
I am happy that later today I am joining two good friends for lunch. Can't wait!
What are you up to this Wednesday?
