And I’m procrastinating with a bit of blogging, too. Since I’m sorting pieces to put them in a show, I decided that I really, finally had to make sure that all my pieces had a sleeve and a label.
My latest labeling process is to paint directly on the quilt with a thermofax screen.
Sometimes it works very well…
and sometimes, not so much.
I can often just write over the bad paint job with a gel pen or a Sharpie and it looks just fine…
and sometimes, not so much!
I never worry too much, though, because I can always go back to what I used to do, which is to print the label from the computer and then iron it on. It can cover all my goofs, if need be, but I really like using the screen and paint.
While I had the paint out, I couldn’t resist trying out my new stencils.
They will make me very happy!
And then I had some pieces that needed sleeves.
That is truly my least favorite job. It’s hand sewing that doesn’t even have to be good, except that I need to make it complete, good and finished off for my own satisfaction. It’s time-consuming and I hate it. Probably why there are always pieces waiting to have a sleeve added!
Back to work…there are sleeves to sew. Yuck!
