ironing fabric

I am ironing some fabric this am and had a memory flashback to when I was young.  My mom had a friend who did ironing as a second job to have spending money.  She would always sprinkle the items she was going to iron and then stick them in the freezer.  I never knew why, and now I am curious as to why. Has anyone here ever heard of this, or done it, or knows the reasoning behind it?

My first little Christmas gift...the "in the hoop" Owl Sewing Kit.  I enjoyed it tremendously to make this little fellow!!


Doesn't he look very wise with his big eyes and "glasses"?  When he closes his wings, all the sewing things are kept safe.

My Latest Project

It has probably been a year or so since I have posted on Quilt With Us.  Life just seems to be moving at such a fast pace without much time leftover for keeping up.  I have been working on my step-daughter's (Stephanie) quilt for about a year as well.  I was so excited when I sewed the last stitch on the quilt top.  Now off to the quilt rack.… Continue

I had Airyn the first week making her quilt. The second week, Abigail. This week is Jeanine turn. Then my YDS's girlfriend, Shannon decides she would like to make a quilt. I entertain her idea by giving a chunk out of my stash. Then tonight, the son announces he wants to make a quilt. We packed up, went to town and Dalton picked out his fabric.

Sunscreening and Blueprinting

I am off early tomorrow morning for the Land of 10,000 Lakes.


While I am gone, of course, my guild is having a speaker I hate to miss.  She does solar blue printing and sunscreening.  I have included a link to her demo videos on my blogsite, www.karenstenback.wordpress.com.


Happy Vacation to Me!    Hope I don't suffer computer withdrawal, while I am gone!  lol.

Orange Peel Flannel Baby Quilt

I've posted pictures on my page of the flannel baby quilt finished yesterday.  (Has anyone else had problems downloading pictures into your posts?  It just seemed to get stuck when I tried.  Am I just too impatient?) 

This was a type of quilt-as-you-go project made from Moda Bunny Luv & Woolies Light flannel sweet sixteen pack.   I had to use more yardage of the neutral flannel in order to finish the project.  I would have also liked to have made it another row wider & longer,…

A weekend in the country filled with crafts and weaving.

I went upstate NY with my Amanda to a area called Sugart Loaf. It's a very artsy and has a nice yarn shop. They had alot of hand spun yarn from local farms. Being a knitter a couln't resist. One lady had a weaving studio. I found it very interesting and fun. Weaving to me is alot of work. She showed us how she wraps the loom and threads the loom. Mrs. banks also had table looms where she weaved small items. It reminded me of the Native Americans that weaved on those large standing looms and… Continue

Sock Summit!

Sock Summit 2011 was great! I got to meet some good friends from among the wonderful people at the Knit Picks Knitting Community.

The event was held at the Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland. (Where else would they hold a sock-knitting convention but in a building adorned with knitting needles?)

There were some wonderful classes. Here I am with Mary Scott Huff, who…

August is here and the trees are going to start their change...

It can't be August already...5 months until Christmas, that should get those machines humming! I'm sure some of us will welcome cooler weather! Texas quilters have truly suffered this year! The good news is that sweet corn is ready and mums and the NY state fair and Bouckville Antique festival is in a couple of weeks! So summer is still racing...Enjoy!

A middle-aged…
