Little Projects on the agenda for this week

Last week I painted the sewing room and got things back to normal. Then with having Granddaughter 3 days a week I found if I don’t plan to finish things I don’t. Yesterday was a wonderful day. I started making a series of 4 panels. Just practicing free motion quilting. I was so in the zone I didn’t hear the phone ring, or hubby telling the phone was for me. When he tapped me on the shoulder I screamed and jumped. Ever get that into doing something? Well this is the first panel finished.

As I was sandwiching my little piece I remember the advice I got from someone that they spray baste and iron their sandwiches so there won’t be any wrinkles. I thought I will try this especially since it was small. The spray basting and spray starch were side by side, you got it, I spray starched it and ironed. It was damp and NOT sticking together. Frustrated I let it dry and pinned it and quilted. It wasn’t until I was ironing some place mats that I noticed what I had done. I have moved the spray starch and spray basting so they don’t sit next to each other.

Today I will be cutting out a dress for Destiny and a blouse for me. Maybe the dress will be finished by time she comes over tonight. Maybe Thursday is more realistic. Have a wonderful day all.

  1. Your starch/baste mix up made me giggle! I have gotten so rusty on my FMQ, but today I finally felt a little more comfortable. I am working on a wall hanging, and I keep telling myself to just keep going, because no one is going to really inspect it!
