Holy cow it’s cold outside!
I heavily starch all my fabrics before I cut and piece my quilts, and that’s a messy job best done outside, but I thought my fingers would freeze off this morning doing it! I decided that even though I need about four yards of four different fabrics for this quilt, I was only going to cut and starch a yard at a time, it’s just too darn cold to do bigger pieces!
They’re frozen solid! It should warm up some in a few hours.
Do you have a favorite ruler? I bought two of these a couple of years ago… I’m sorry to say I don’t recall where they came from, but this size is the best ever! I use these whenever I’m squaring a quilt, a block, or just need to cut something large out, they’re twenty-four inches square.
This morning I slathered some fresh sourdough bread with butter and gooseberry jam, my favorite! So good with a hot cup of coffee!
I think I might bake myself some cookies later on. I even took the butter out to warm up
