Remember last week that I had traced out some applique pieces on some Steam a Seam and then POOF - it literally disappeared. I searched through everything that I was working on at that time. Searched under the cutting table, in the project bag, the Monday box, - I mean I looked EVERYWHERE.
Then yesterday when I was getting some stuff ready for today, I had to trace an image onto Steam a Seam and went to the light box.
|And there was MY MISSING PIECE OF STEAM A SEAM with the images traced on.|
Yeah - who would have thought I had taken it to the light box. I think I know why - there was ONE arm that I needed to use the light table to trace. I had two pieces of Steam a Seam and when I traced on one - the other one got left behind. Obviously my brain is NOT working these days. That I forgot where I put that - that quickly!!!!
And then last night, I was sitting at the computer chatting on the phone. At one point, I pushed my chair back and just sat there looking at the computer desk. THEN I almost fell off the chair. Can you guess what I saw??????? Something that has been missing for MONTHS.
|My quilt hangers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I can't believe it!!!!!|
The darn things were so close to me - they could have bit me if they were any closer!!!!!
|See - there they are - nestled between the two white buckets!!!|
|But you can't see them when you are close up!|
Unfortunately, I didn't have a third item that I was missing cause I am sure I would have found that as well.
So what do you get when you take...............
|scraps of batting|
|squares of flannel (already pre-cut!!!!!! - probably years ago!!!)|
|And fusible interfacing (lightweight)|
|First you join the batting strips with 1 1/4" strips of fusible interfacing - then cut 6 1/4" squares of batting|
|Equals a KIT for a rag quilt that got packed into a box to be sewn into a rag quilt at some point. But at least it is NOW ready to go!!!!!|
Have a great day!!!!
