Did you know it is possible to be whooping with delight, thanking ye Gods and ye crafting fairies while doing simultaneous mortification? After the whole scorched-by-iron Quilt Project dramatics last Thursday and the sweet, shoulder-patting sympathy, Googling and top tips left by exceptionally lovely readers of this blog (thank you most excellent and exceptionally lovely readers of this blog), you’re not going to believe what got those stains OUT. I’m too embarrassed to say.
Instead, I’m just going to turn this into a Live and Learn Moment. I hereby raise my right hand and proclaim that One shalt try to be less reactive and hysterical even when there is the smell of burning fabric. One shalt also attempt to refrain from crafting whilst sleep-deprived and One shalt acquire a nice, predictable-type iron and religiously study its instruction manual from cover to cover, no matter how bleedingly obvious things may seem.
In the meantime, my Quilt Project square is finished. Thank you, Glinda, Good Witch of the South, for any role you may have played in that.
It’s been quite some whirlwind ride.
If you haven’t seen what everyone else has been up to, then just go and take a peek at all the redwork loveliness here.
PS. Cold water.
PPS. Yep, that’s what I said.
