that I will post every day. After 5 years, I don't have as much to share as I did in the beginning. But I'm making the effort to post more often!! This is todays mess! I love sewing early in the morning with my mug of coffee at my side. And although I'm hard at work on those string blocks(!!!) I need something else to piece. I'm not a quilter than can go "straight" through a project to the end. This morning, I'm making 4 patches. Needless to say, from scraps!
And working with scraps requires ironing! For this I've pulled out my old faithful GE travel iron. It's an oldie but goodie. It's stainless steel, small and light weight, but with great heat! It's also old enough to have a cloth cord. It doesn't "grab" the corners of quilt blocks like my regular iron does. I use this iron on the little portable ironing board laid across on Rubbermaid standing baskets thingy.
Here's yet another "begun" that I plan on finishing, but not necessarily as one of my 5 pledged projects. I think I've begun Gypsy Quilter Kitchen Sink in every possible flavor. For this one, I wanted to use up some primarly black FQs. I found the container held 15 blocks. I need 30 for a donation quilt. Soooo, I stitched the additional 15 yesterday while waiting for the Sears repair man. Now to get them ironed and joined up...! That's another container emptied!!! How's everyone doing on their current projects?
Ideas for next Christmas
