"No it actually stays in place.  And you can reposition it and restick it and it still stays.  Whatever the press and seal is made of it pretty cool when it comes to adhering to stuff like the fabric. "

Just need to vent

Posted by Vickie Smith on January 31, 2015 at 5:35pm 0 Comments

Between the computer issues, the floor being redone in the kitchen, then a couple of weeks ago the back fence started to fall down, now the microwave died while I was fixing dinner today.  Oh well, this too shall pass as they say.  I was able to finish dinner since the stove/oven still works, right now.  Hope that doesn't decide to die any time soon.

Great idea!

My quilt group had a great idea. We picked a New Year's resolution: finish a UFO, including details about it. An example: finish snowman wall hanging, have blocks, need to sew them, quilt it and bind it. Or for newbies, learn new technique like binding, applique.  Write it on paper, give it to our program director. In December, out come the cards. Bring project done or not.

I am so enjoying the New Year Challenge for 2014.  I have been able to finish at least one project a month.  The thought of next year has crept in.  Seeing my piles of scraps, as some of you may have, and being influenced to join in the Scrappy Quilts Group, Leaders and Enders, my goal for 2015 will be to make 12 scrap quilts.  That is one a month.  I believe this is doable.

Along with that goal of scrap quilts, finishing 22 kits I have purchased will be a goal as well.
