Yesterday I worked more on the baby quilt and made progress but it goes slow so I didn’t take a photo – I will tomorrow most likely. I did get a little more done on the Granny Squares – it is getting heavier though and my flimsy design wall is beginning to sag a little LOL – I think when I get done with this quilt and get all off the wall once again I will get a couple insulation boards (the thick blue kind) and wrap them in the flannel and gently nail the boards into the wall so hopefully it will stay put better. Right now the flannel is just stapled to the wall with carpenter staples, but they didn’t go in well.
I really didn’t get much else done though as the dentist usually takes a bit out of me. I have a jaw problem and dental work always makes it quite sore for the next 24 to 48 hours so by mid day as the Novocain was wearing off my jaw begin to throb.
Hopefully I will get more done today – the weather is finally clearing up and it was above freezing most of the day yesterday but I still had a hard time getting the car out of the driveway to go to my dental appointment – it was middle of the morning and still only 24 degrees at that time. Mike had to finally get in behind the wheel and maneuver it to the top of the driveway so I could drive away! I say the “top of the driveway” our driveway really isn’t that steep – it is a slight incline to the highway but the ice was so thick on it – as the sleet melts in the rain gauge so far I see 1.5 inches of water in it! That is a lot of sleet that we had. Next winter I think a couple bags of salt for driveway will be kept on hand – we could have used it 4 times now this year.
Interesting note on this product that I found yesterday:
Steam a Seam 2 and Lite Steam a Seam 2– I do not use this product very much as I don’t do fusible often but when I read Debbie’s post yesterday about needing to order more soon and wanted a certain size and wasn’t sure where she could get it – just out of curiosity I did a search – if you have been having a problem finding it here is why.
