Much of this Saturday morning was spent relaxing with a coffee cup in my hand... HOME!
Eventually, I wandered downstairs and played around with some sashing ideas for my 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. It was enjoyable to simply...... RELAX with no pressure of time.
I have a new iron on my board; a Black-n-Decker Classic. My last one simply peetered out and wasn't getting hot anymore. So far, this one is.......'eh.' The holes on the bottom catch the edges of the fabric when I'm pressing smaller units :\. But I chose this one over the completely 'dry' one (which had NO holes) because this had an auto shut-off. Although, I'm rethinking whether I really need that feature. It'd be nice to have a nice, flat iron with NO holes. Something to think about next time.
I purchased my yarn for the Crochet Crowd (via Yarnspirations) mystery crochet along. The plum showed up quite bold with the flash; it's a bit darker than what seems present in the picture. I was sadly disappointed in the selection of Caron Simply Soft at our local Walmart. It would seem that they've dropped quite a few of their formerly stocked colors :( My original color-palette hope....
And I found that Hancock Fabrics has a sale on Simply Soft right now, but..... **shrug**.... I just can't bring myself to pushing that "Submit Order" button. ;) ((even though I have a gift certificate from my Mommie for HF)). Frugal much???
In the meantime, I'm making progress on the newest ripple afghan: the 12 Interlocking Ripples (Attic24's Neat Ripple pattern).
