    So, I'm sewing HappyNana's 30's brown, pink and lime green strips together. Work a little, rest a little. And I've got a white plastic folding table that I use for a sewing table. I try my best to keep the different sets of strips (4 strips from choice of 5 prints) a bit different. And as usual I'm keeping a cheat sheet with a lead pencil on the white table, to tic off the strip combos.

    To the right of the sewing machine I've got my pressing area-------paper and a couple table cloths for a sewing pad. And I've got an old Windex bottle with water to spritz the strips when I'm ready to press.

    Now in order not to confuse myself, I write a couple strip set colors down, make them and then clean the notes off the table.

    So, I'm on strip set #6 or 7 and I just spritzed the strip and thought that it sure smelled louder than it ought to.

    WELL, I GUESS SO! I JUST SPRITZED ONE STRIP SET WITH FANTASTIK. Okay, it didn't hurt the fabric one bit because I realized it was cleaner before I ironed. So, it went to the bathroom sink, got some soap, and went out to the deck fence for a quick dry (in 90 degree sun!)

    This quilting kicks out a new experience at least once a month. Makes for good stories, if nothing else.

    my hubby unloads the trunk. The inside of the car is MINE--in case I need to sneak anything.lol

    But I still misplace stuff all the time. I did get smart a while back and now small stuff like thread goes in a small sack and into my purse before leaving a store.
