Tested AGAIN the "One Hour Quilt" pattern...still not satisfied with the flimsy result!
I tried two different methods this time. One with the the exterior fused with "Heat N Bond Ultra Hold" and another fabric layer (when fused used as exterior), then a layered with batting as instructions say.The second method was exterior fabric, temporary basting spray, and a layer of "TIMTEX" instead of batting, and then instructions the same as pattern
I also FINISHED! the scarf for Amanda (Chicago is COLD!!!):
I have been knitting since 1982, and only recently read an article that says for COLD weather, the scarf should be as long as the person is tall, so this scarf is 64"-----another great thing about being in California is that the scarf is basically an accessory, not essential to keep you warm!
But having been to Chicago in the winter, I can attest to the fact that you have a VERY hard time keeping warm.....and then the wind.....oy!
A care package will be going out soon....to my baby!
She also got her care package today, and sent me a pic to thank me!
