  2. Making half square triangles question

I have used the Angler 2 in the past, that fits on the bed of my machine, and had fairly good luck but just wondering about trying one of these other methods. What is the method you use or what works best for you. Just curious.

    OOOHH Can you share the store?? We go to Lafayette every few weeks and I want these clocks!!
    Sorry this reply is so late. I'm not positive, but think the store's name was Gretel's. It was a home decor type of store in West Lafayette. Hope this helps!

  10. Not now!

    by , 03-29-2014 at 11:20 AM (Mystery solved!)
    Washed a dark piece of material on low load, then tossed another load in. Mid cycle totally quit. Was hoping to get another month or 2 out of my washer. It is about 14 years but just wanted to finish this one. Will just have to hand rinse then toss into dryer. Guess I should be grateful DH says we will get new tomorrow. He hates Laundromats worse than I do. If anyone were to ask me which appliance I would do without, the answer would not be my washer and dryer. I can cook anything on the BBQ pit ...
