Grrr:mad: Having decided not to put up with the wind and occassional shower of rain anymore today, I pulled out the quilt I am making and decided to do another block on it.

So here I was busy happily ironing all the visorfix on ready to make up my picture, when suddenly I noticed a flaw in my plan. :confused: I stuck the visofix on the wrong side didn't I, whats more I even managed to iron some of it straight onto the ironing board[:I]

What a waste of effort all the fabric now getting it all washed off. No one to blame but myself.

And here was me thinking that if I got on with something like that then I could break my addiction to this board. Guess I will have time to fill in until I can try again[}:)]

Maybe you should, it was a pretty silly thing to do[;)]

I thought I'd work on some mosaics today and ended up cleaning the garage! I should never have gone in there.
Its a bummer when you have so little free time that you can't even use it properly!

I'm sooooo glad I'm not the only twit who does that kind of stuff.. you are not alone in your ditsey-ness!!!!!!:o....

how far off is your quilt??? I've just finished all the blocks for mine but now have to put on the framing and try to end up with 26 blocks that are the same size before the sashing part......(some are a little different at this stage so I'm a wee bit worried about this part of the process... 1st quilt!!!)

I had visions of it being on the bed for last winter (took the quilt making course in Feb last year).. oh ha ha ha.. maybe by the end of the decade!!!!!!...perhaps we should have a competition..

will you be hand quilting or machine quilting...??? I like the idea of hand quilting and with it being a queen sized quilt I think machine quilting will be hard...

I am on block four of a 22 block quilt so it may be a while. [;)]

It is only the second quilt I have made but I did a once a month class last year which got my forst one done in good time. It was a celtic design that we quilted as we went so it was very interesting to put it all together in the last class. [8D]

This one is roosters and hens and is smaller as I want it to just throw over our legs in the winter while we cuddle up on the couch. :rolleyes:The plan is to do two blocks a month and I started last month, so so far I am on track. Although if I can get it done faster it will be ready for this winter.

We have a lady locally that has a big quilting machine, so that is always an option for me if I chicken out of quilting it after it is made.:o

visorfix is (I think...from the description) an iron on fabric 'adhesive' in sheet form. A bit like that iron on stuff you get for hemming things when you can't be bothered to find a needle.

Yes, sometimes the old brain doesnt work like it should :-)
Last night I spent about 2 hours (on & off) walking around the property calling for one of my queens who I thought had gone walkabout; nobody answered. When I went out to feed everyone, there she was already locked in her cattery. Damned if I could remember doing it earlier in the day and hubby says he didnt ~ so I must've. God, I am a worry sometimes..lol

I think I know what you mean now... I've used it before as well, comes in roll form like stickytape, stick on pants, place patch over, apply iron, pull iron off pants and turn off then pull pants on :D
