Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This month is part of your first secret missions. You can now open your smaller envelope with the pet paws on it. This month's impossible mission involves organizing your SS sister's bobbins in a little different way. This month you will share with her something that brings a smile to your face, while helping her to organize her bobbins. Maybe you loved marbles as a child, or you have a collection of antique buttons, maybe ladybugs are your thing. Whatever it is, please share it with us. You will only post the picture of one of your creations as we want the rest of them to be a surprise. I found that placing the tees into an empty thread spool made it easier to work with while decorating them. Have fun with this and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
The other envelope is for your July mission, so don't open it just yet.
Thanks, I was actually debating about curing the yarn LOL
Ha ha, looks like a friend of mine who spikes her hair, it's a different color every time l see her!
Very clever Wilma!
I do have my supplies set out for the project..but I am scared of my glue gun. It always burns me. So I went out to play with my early birthday present. A rechargeable 10 inch chainsaw. Gotta love that husband.
You make the perfect couple, Mary. You both sound like loads of fun.
Mary, best solution is to lay the glue gun down in a large shallow pie dish ( glue guns just tip over using those wire little stands, l find).
You use a chainsaw ( that can cut your arm off,) but are afraid to get injured by the glue gun?? You DO realize how ironic that situation is, don't you? I do understand it, though, as l get cuts from utensils like cheese graters all the time but have not once cut myself with rotary cutter.
My first summer job at 18, I was assistant camp cook and very klutzy. I had 10 bandaged fingers from knife cuts, when I was asked to dip the chicken pieces in batter to oven fry. We were only serving about 100 campfire girls and staff. Going to put the large trays in the oven, I noticed all the bandages were gone. Head cook was not pleased...but I did find all ten bandages in the leftover batter.
Oh my! Did they let you continue to cook Mary?? ROFLOL
Oh that is so funny, Mary, can just imagine the head cook was in a panic.
Cooked there for two more summers until I broke my ankle carrying the American flag down some steps during the morning ceremony. I was determined not to drop it in front of impressionable children. (I was such a not child of the 60's) Got the cast off the day before our wedding.
