Design Wall Monday - 9/10/12

I have a single, very pathetic, picture for you today...


It's a cute and simple little mug rug based on something I saw online yesterday. All I had to do was pull some 3.5" squares out of a box and wa-la! I just need to find a backing in the scrap bins and I am sure I can find some binding scraps as well.

I added the lingerie fabric to spice up the picture for you! It's leftover from some scrap trimming I did over the weekend. I trimmed scraps for 3 scrappy projects and the rest went into strip bins. Not an overwhelming accomplishment but any progress is better than none, right?!

Ahh...the other upside is that I took that stupid, dead iron to Walmart and before even telling the lady the whole story, she said "it has problems" and told me to get a new one off the shelf - no questions, no receipt. It's the same iron so it could have the same problems but if they will keep replacing it, so be it. On the suggestion of several people, I did not add water to the iron for the whole weekend but by Sunday night I just couldn't take it any more and added water...I'm much happier :)

I need to get working on my hexies! I've been so busy with my dresdens, they've been pushed to the side!

I grew up without a steam iron, so I always thought it was such a hassle to have to have distilled water handy and was much more comfortable with a spray bottle than a steam iron. So I still don't put water in my irons and I go through one about every 10 years. Just sayin'. : )
