January 6th

Guess I should have turned that lamp off before I took the photo!! This was a quilt that I made after seeing a photograph online. It was probably my first attempt at figuring out "how did they do that".....
I'm not a hanging sleeve person, as you can tell from my little pins holding this up. I also am not a label person. I even came across over a yard of cute labels when clearing out my sewing room. Lots of them were with Christmas graphics on them, but a few more country type. Guess they should go in my give away pile.
I also found, still in the package, one of those clover mini irons that I thought I might like if I ever did much paper piecing. But I like my travel Rowenta so well, I just use that for small things. I've learned to keep the box and packaging for that small Rowenta though, as I have had troubles with the cord fraying and with leaking, and when it happens I take it right back to the store and exchange it for a new one. My current one is now 3 months old and so far so good! I spoke to a rep from Rowenta at the Sew Expo a couple years ago and he was basically no help at all, other than to say just return it. So I do!

I hate sewing on sleeves too but also don't like pinning...which is what I end up doing. Wish there was an easier solution!

It's fun seeing a quilt a day. :)
