While ironing the borders for this quilt (yes, I'm all over the place, haven't really finished ANYTHING, but I'm working on various and sundry projects), I had an accident:
This iron mark is on the seat of our recliner!!! I only placed the iron there for about four seconds, count them, one, two, three, four, and it wasn't even fully heated up yet! Yikes! What did my husband have to say? "Good thing it's Valentine's Day!" Well, this chair is ONLY about 25 years old, mind you! And while I'm thinking, way past time for a new chair anyway, he says, "Now you'll have to make a chair cover for it." Huh??? An upholsterer I am not, thank you very much!
My house block quilt, (previous post), that Michele and Pokey have been "helping" me on is finished. At least the top. And I've decided on a gold-flowered kind of vintage fabric for the back. I want to save the birds for something else. And I want to buy a high-loft batting for it so it's nice and cozy to watch t.v. under (on my now iron-burned recliner :-)
I hope you are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day!
