I’ve been tying thread ends this afternoon and sewing them in. Now that doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? Actually, it’s been rather pleasant, and restful, sitting outside in the shade of the sun umbrella, with a cold drink at hand. There’s a gentle breeze, the song of birds chirping, the occasional hum of traffic over the back fence.

But………I’ve got a little problem and hope someone will know the answer. I’ve had to remove a few applique pieces, stuck down with Steam-a-Seam, which I had ironed. Now I have a couple of sticky white patches from the adhesive. Does anyone know how to safely remove this sticky mess? I had thought that perhaps I could place my applique mat over top, then press with my iron, and maybe that might make the gunk easier to scrape off. Or maybe there is some solution I could dab on. Any ideas will be very much appreciated.
Our elderly cat Muffy wants nothing more than to keep up close and personal to one or other of us. Presently she is squashed up on my lap against the table as I’m blogging. It can’t be terribly comfy for her, as she keeps slipping and sliding, and I have to readjust her legs. But she is determined that this is the place she wants to be right at this moment, and that’s where she is staying, squashed up or not! At her age, we feel she can have what she likes, anything to keep her happy – and quiet! Senile vocalisation can get rather trying!
