Say OOPS I did it AGAIN!
I was finishing the house on the right and I decided to remove the Frixion pen marks on the edges of the windows. I got out my iron and then...........OH NOOOOOO!! I forgot about the Frixion pen on the back for the back basting. I need a sticky note or some other notification device that says STOP DO NOT IRON. I had to get out my light box, which is a piece of Plexiglass that I lay on top of some under counter florescent light fixtures, and I had to redraw the section that the heat friction took out. When I had originally drawn the reverse image on the back of the fabric, I had not drawn in all the details. My thinking at the time was that the houses would be created separately and that I just needed their placement and not all the details. My goof gave me a chance to draw in the details. I had better get a move on finishing this block. OMG!! There is not much time left in the month to finish my goal.
I have been distracted with other projects. I just ordered some templates from paperpieces.com to make Katja Matek's quilt. I have to stay focused and not dream about new projects before I get the current ones done.
