Does this ever happen to you? You have a specific tool you buy for a project, use it, put it away, and cannot find it the next time you want to use it?
That’s what happened to me when I was working on this:
I did not want to use my big iron for such small pieces and remembered this:
A bit antiquated, but it worked fine.
I am on my last row of the Experience. Hopefully I will have all the rows put together this week. I am thinking of just meandering to quilt them because I just want to get this ‘FINISHED’!The best part of this whole experience was getting most of the patterns with my grandchildren, even though Daddles was in agony having to go from quilt shop to quilt shop.
I canned corn this week. I do not have a deep freezer so I have to can everything.
I was surprised how easy the corn was to can! Sorry I do not remember the site I got this from:
- After husking and cleaning corn, cut off kernels.
- Place corn kernels in clean, hot jars.
- Add salt. (I added ¼ tsp.)
- Fill jar with boiling water, leaving 1” headspace.
- ‘Poke’ out air bubbles.
- Screw on cap.
- Process for 55 minutes.
I listened to a 90 minutes webinar by Renea of http://richmombusiness.comThe subject was ‘Pinterest’ and so intense she had me stressed out by the time it was over! She gave such great information. Now all I have to do is decide which 'path' to start down. Should it be glass or jewelry? I would like to try jewelry but there are so, so many sites out there selling their jewelry wares.
Or should I do glass fusing?
This bowl was made by using the bride's flowers from her wedding bouquet.
Then there are the totally 'customized' fused pieces:
Do you have any suggestions?
While I was fusing the tiny pieces of fabric in place:
to keep from burning my fingertips I put these on my fingers:
I was able to hold the pieces in place to keep them from moving while ironing and I did not burn my fingers. These are actually finger ‘cots/grippies’ to help move the fabric while quilting but they work great to keep your fingers safe while ironing.
I got mine at JoAnn’s with a coupon. (Of course.)
Have a great week.
