I cannot tell you how NICE it is to have you out there -- all over the world -- reading my BLOG once in awhile -- commenting once in awhile -- and just being the sweet ladies you are.
I was REALLY disappointed in one of Edyta Sitar's applique blocks yesterday, and also disappointed with the NON-response from her website. She is so darling, I can't imagine she wouldn't respond if she had received my email. I have a feeling her husband is running things on the website. A man answered one time when I called, and he wasn't very nice. Maybe he was having a bad day. One never knows.
ANYHOW, I was working on my 8th block, and I had major issues with it. It would NOT STICK when I ironed it. It has really pointy leaves, and I NEEDED them to stick.
Here is a pic of the block:
Imagine zig-zagging around all those POINTS on the leaves with them not being ironed down! I did the first one while thinking bad words and grumbling the whole way around. THEN, my lightning fast mind remembered Sulky Solvable. I sprayed a piece of that with some KK2000 and placed it on top of the second unstuck leaf. It worked a whole lot better, but then I had to wash it away.
I emailed Edyta at Laundry Basket Quilts HOPING she would send me another package of cut-outs for this block, but I haven't heard a thing back.
These fusible precuts are VERY expensive. She needs to replace defective ones.
For the lady that asked me about the little lights I have on my sewing machines, here is a video all about them:
I'm off to get in my jammies and watch "how to crochet" videos.
I really don't want to do that much of it, however, as I feel it isn't much exercise for an ever-widening bottom and falling body parts!
Be back soon.
