I thought I would show a picture of the work I did with the Grip-n-Grip. I iron the freezer paper templates on the muslin and then draw a sewing and cutting line on the fabric with a mechanical pencil. I do prefer it to the sandpaper. The line is smooth and easy to draw. The fabric does not move at all.
When I was at the Sewing and Craft sale there were just tons of notions and gadgets for sale there. The woman I went out there with and I were talking about how it would be interesting to have a show and tell at our guild meeting one night of the "Most Useless" and "Most Useful" gadgets. Boy -- I tell you I have bought some useless stuff over the years. Maybe we should have a blog "show and share". Sometimes something looks like such a good idea - you spend $20.00 on it and come home and find it is a complete waste of money. Anyway -- I think the Grip-n-Grip is good value for money.
I bought a few fat quarters as well to add a small sashing in between my four patch blocks for my table centre. The sashing will be the blue and then I will put small red corner blocks. I have also bought a new TV and another table for my sewing room. So -- I guess I gotta work for a few more years yet :))
And here is a Jenny picture. She really seems to be settling in well. She is a bit more playful than we expected. Last night - when we were ready for bed she was ready for ball! We gave her a bath on Sunday and her fur crimped up like it had been through a crimping iron. She is so soft - and isn't shedding any hair at all. She is such a mixture of breeds. She is so gentle and quiet. We have heard her bark only three times so far, and only one short bark each time.
