new find...

After using Andrina's iron at the retreat... I went online to "Vermont Country Store" and bought myself one of these... It is the BEST iron ever!!! Just like Grandma use to use..My Rowenta is taking a back seat!

"After months of searching, we located a much-requested dry iron, which had been missing from the marketplace for over 20 years. Many of our customers prefer a dry iron over today's steam iron because it is better for pressing starched clothes, and the smooth sole plate does not leave impressions on plush towels or clothing. Quilters and crafter's like it too for fusing appliques. Features a cool-touch handle and temperature selection dial with fabric guide. 8 ft. long cord. UL listed.

  • Smooth sole plate
  • Great for quilting and crafts

For perfect pressing, nothing beats a dry iron—and we found it for you!"

Above is the backing....
Below is the table topper... Didn't want to hang another quilt in the library, people will really think I'm crazy. So, since I have a conference table, I made a table topper. I have a couple I made from the left overs of quilts and I just switch them out. I have toppers for the seasons/holidays that I put out also.

Below is block "H" of the block of the month quilt I am doing. Can't wait till it is done.

Dr. Seuss...

Newest project that I will be working on hopefully this weekend. Having machine issues... long arm (pfaff), had to take it to the Dr., thread had been breaking ALOT lately, new needle, new thread, new bobbin...nothing helped. I thought it was the quilt and not ironing it flat enough... nope, started again when I loaded the last one on. So I got 1 row half way done, broke 3 times so I yanked it off and took the machine in! Could not take it any more. My viking... a while ago I tried to figure out how to use it to quilt small things and screwed up the stitch card, must have shorted it out, all I can do is straight stitch now on it. Other cards work, but not the one I use 95 % of the time. Cards go for over $100.00 bucks on ebay, only place to get them, Viking doesn't make them anymore. Ordered 2 from Bournemouth, Dorset, where ever the heck that is?? they sent me the wrong one, the other has not come yet. GRRRR. It was only $24.00 there. So Marian just might be selling me a new Bernina here pretty soon!. It's lookin' better and better every day the stupid thing doesn't come in the mail.
