    Lasagna pots reign! And address labels! Finally ready for my next project - (Fanciful Flowers from the most recent Quilter's World)

    Must have been longer than I thought since I fused anything! Fused 3 templates to the "front" side of the fabric. Barely had enough to cut more templates out of the "good" fusing and did one wrong again thus running out of that fabric (my favorite)!

    Cut the centers out of the templates to make them less stiff - works great until you realize you've already fused them to the fabric! (2nd favorite fabric) These were 2 of the already re-cut ones - TG the others were cut out before fusing!

    Then outside my window I saw the rainbow. Gold! I thought, Gold! Then I realized the rainbow ended right in the crater of Mt. S. Helens (just below the horizon)! *sigh*

    Thanks you Marie Callendar

    Hahahaha!!! I HATE it when that happens!! I have certianly done my share of ironing the fusable to the right side of the fabric....then realizing the situation and rushing to try to pull it off....as if that would help!! NOT!!!

    Oh well...we all make TONS of errors in this life....but we eventually end up with flowers!! :-)

    Thanks everyone! Don't think we're allowed to post the picture from the magazine. If its allowed I will certainly. You could go here and look at Fanciful Flowers.

    I've used a bunch of the food-related black containers to hold applique pieces too, though most of mine came from Costco salads. It's nice to get some use of those things. The pattern you're starting is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

    Mt. St. Helens is in Washington. I was living in N. Idaho at the time when she flipped her lid. Only got 8 inches of ash and considered ourselves very lucky compared to others.

    Interesting Tonnie. We lived down in Beaverton, Or, South of Portland and knew nothing of it until my DC called me from Vancouver CANADA to ask if we were OK. They had actually heard the explosion up there! We raced upstairs and looked out the window to see the whole plume! (The "top" was just below the horizon) Fortunate ?? that it was a cloudless day. We did not get a grain of ash our way, but certainly felt for you guys when we saw it on TV.

    Thanks, guys!

    A funny thing happened....I thought I'd over"posted" my welcome because I did not get any e-mail notice of replies to my 2 latest posts! About this one and my GD"s quilts. I was going to quietly slip away for a few weeks, but thought I'd check the posts and THERE YOU WERE! FAITH RESTORED! Thank you for looking. As you know, I'm not one t hide my light under a bushel!!!
