|Sewing Bonnie's mystery while listening to Bonnie!|
Did you notice that I have a new mini iron and wool pressing mat? Can I tell you how much I love these new tools?!?! I resisted getting the wool mat because of the cost, but it is unbelievably amazing!
The wool grabs the fabric and keeps it steady so there is no slipping or stretching of the blocks as you press. I do miss power pressing long strips of pieced blocks at the regular ironing board, but for pressing small blocks by the sewing machine this little iron and wool mat can't be beat! This mat will eliminate the need for Best Press Spray as everything presses completely flat. It's definitely worth the price, and this one is the perfect size to take to quilt retreat.
Unfortunately due to Christmas activities and getting the Norovirus at New Year's, I fell behind in sewing the Frolic mystery steps (and everything in general... the Christmas tree is still up!)
