Project Accomplishments:  I worked all day on test center. Cut fabric pieces, as they were needed and marked sewing lines. Adhered templates to fabric with glue stick and used an iron to press seams lines to conform to templates. Sewing went well. I got a handle on how to make final center. Using an appliqué approach, I joined the pieces.

Books:  As above


Tools:  Gingher embroidery scissors, Fiskars 6” soft touch titanium nitride ergonomic scissors, Rowenta steam iron, Sew Line fabric glue stick and mechanical pencil for fabric with white lead, Niagara spray starch (by Phoenix Brands), paint brush to apply starch The CrafTistic Basic Board (a non-skid surface for marking outlines of templates and more)

The CrafTistic brand no longer exists. It is a sandpaper covered board and thee are other brands available.

Diversions: I had few diversions because husband was in Indianapolis, IN at a conference. I worked late into the morning hours.
