I missed last week, due to way too much going on around here. I knew I wouldn’t have time to visit anyone. Some of the teachers are striking today, which means I have my girl home with me. Because he has AS Level exams coming up very soon, by boy has to go, much to his disgust and her delight!
My desk is in a pickle. I’m continuing my task of matching patterns/ideas with fabric and making a note of what is needed to complete the garment/project. There may be a pretty notebook involved. Thanks Jess.
I probably should have cleared all the paper crafting stuff away first, rather than just dumping the fabric and sewing paraphernalia on top, but where would be the fun in that? Strike while the iron’s hot.
On the subject of ironing, you can probably see the bottle of Mary Ellen’s Best Press there on the right. I’ve seen it mentioned on quilter’s blogs and thought I’d give it a try. It’s supposed to get out those annoying creases from the fabric being folded on the bolt and receives glowing reviews all over the web. Perhaps my iron (or my technique) is rubbish, but it didn’t work for me. The creases are still there.
Head on over to Julia’s place to find a whole host of desks, pickled or otherwise.
PS Still plenty of time to join in with this month’s SIPIDI!, if you want to.
