I had several emails asking if I press/iron my fabrics before cutting.
YES, YES, YES!!!!
There is nothing worse than an inaccurate cut, which really means cutting twice. Once to cut the shape from wrinkled fabric, and once to trim it to the size it should be. I never cut wrinkled fabric which includes fabric with fold marks. I am always after my students to press before cutting. The group of fabrics above is from my 'quarter yard or less' box of blues, purples and greens. I will now go press all of it and then cut as many squares as I can.
Every year I intend to make a quilt from these fabrics, and I never get around to it. I think this is the year it might get done.
I am a sucker for prints with hearts. In this box are mostly the red and white ones. A lot of multicolor ones are sprinkled through my stash.
I have a few prints that really say 'Valentine' and not just hearts
As I was walking through the kitchen I noticed one of the bigger brown squirrels on the 'squirrel resistant' feeder.
No I phrased that wrong, not on the feeder, IN the feeder!
I watched one of the little gray squirrels open the top a couple days ago and they easily fit inside the tube. I had no idea the big brown squirrel would fit too!
