Update – Starch Your $$$$

Last post was about homemade fabric finish for pressing…starch. Quilters Moonshine 2

Just want to add that I am into my second bottle of “Quilter’s Moonshine” and it is going well. NO stickiness on fabrics or the iron! NO smell! NO problems!

I DID, however, go back and add more starch than the recipe calls for. I poured it all back together and added about 2 more tablespoons of starch. I think this is about preference. I suggest you start with the recipe, as is, and go from there.

Back to my sewing…and pressing…for now!

Hello blogosphere!

Well, I have been threatening to return and here I am.  Trying some easier, work my way back posts to get going. I am reading more posts too. I will get there!

Not because this blog is at all “all about me”, but to start, I am going to take a Share Your World challenge from Cee at ceenphotography.com

Are you usually late, early, or right on time?   My goal is to be just a tad early, but it doesn’t always happen. I hate to hurry, so I always try to allow lots of time and I am fortunate that my schedule usually allows that.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?   Definitely poems. For the most part, the few that I have written just come to me. Generally, I wake up with them on my mind.

Where did you live at age 10?   I lived in Kansas City and moved from one house to another that year. It was traumatic because I came home from camp and my house was almost empty! I did not know anything about the plan to move.  I have moved many times since then, and currently live in Bend, Oregon.

Would you rather be able to fly or breathe under water?   This answer seems a bit morbid…I am tempted to say breathe under water, just in case, because I think drowning would be horrible. That said, I would rather be able to fly. Oh the places you could go and the things you could see from such a wonderful vantage point! Oh, btw, I am also afraid of very high places…go figure!

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?   Last week, I attended a beautiful baby shower for a young friend who is almost to complete a high-risk pregnancy. I am grateful for the eminent success of this situation and the friends that were brought together for the event.

Coming up? Who knows…it is a great adventure and anything could happen. Right now, I know we will be dining with friends that we love, so I will say that is what I am looking forward to.

If you did, thanks for reading. I will be easing in with some more of these simpler “follow the leader” type posts until I can get my own juices back in the groove!

Happy blogging all!
