Hello again everybody! The New Year started out with a bang of creativity for me.
I was moving and shaking.
I dug in the closet for tops that needed to be quilted.
I made a back for one ( previous post) and pin basted it together.
I had prepared tons of little tiny leaves and pieces for my Quilt Show BOM hand
Then BOOM! The SICKNESS….the CRUD…..the PLAGUE hit!!!
I MISSED THE WHOLE LAST HALF OF JANUARY!!!
I was SOOOOO MAD!!
All my creative efforts came to a screeching halt!!!
But all is well that ends well. I am much better now (lingering cough). I must
be better if I am thinking of re-arranging the furniture again! HA!!
I decided to put all the parts of my BOM up on the design wall. I had not seen the parts all together. As I finished each piece I just put them in the drawer with all the other parts.
Then I decided to try my hand at soaking out the glue on one of the 4 main appliqué' blocks.
I filled a little tub
I WAS SCARED!!!!
Yep, I was too scared to put it in the water.
My stomach hurt, I paced the floor holding the cute little block in my hands.
I had never done this before!
BUT armed with the advice I researched online I became BRAVE!
I took a deep breath and threw it into the water fast as fast could be
before I changed my mind.
Hey, whatever was wrong with me? See, it looks so happy floating around in
it's little bath and there weren't any pieces or parts that
floated to the top!
Sigh….what a relief!!!!
OK…..now I'm feeling brave and strong and ready to charge on!
I soaked the glue out of these too!!! They are the cornerstones for the above top.
WOW, it was hard for me going into unknown uncharted waters, but I think it worked out ok!
I'M NOT SCARED ANYMORE……..
UNTIL I think about machine quilting that top I have all basted and ready to go.
my stomach hurts again
