In the midst of some freezing temperatures, rain and even snow - I find the need to make something to remind me of warmer days.
How about poppies? :) I'm a Californian and there's something about the sight of poppies that always make me smile...
Also - new project, new tool. I'm recently brought the Petite Press:
Love it! I tried a couple of mini-sized craft irons before and by far this one is the best. It head tilts for different ironing angles, 4 different heat settings (though I just keep it on the highest one usually) and it's super comfortable to use. I recommend it for any quilter or crafter out there who needs a mini-iron.
And the Petite Iron was definitely a life-saver when I had to press all these appliques in place:
There were actually 3 rows of poppies :).
And yes I finally was able to use my sewing machine :) - how long as it been??? Weeks?? :P
I feel like I need to play the song - "united and it feels so gooood"!
Ahhh - sewing at last :).
