I am so winning this race.

Slow and steady, people.



Slow. And steady.

Since my iron has now taken to auditioning non-stop for the part of The Shower Head in the big holiday appliance show, these placemats are crinkly -- but dry -- for the moment. Once the iron realizes it doesn't have a shot in hell of getting that part, I will soothe its broken soul by reuniting it with some spray starch, and the two of them will make my mats crisp and lovely.

Damn that holiday appliance show.

LOL You've got to let those appliances know whose the boss.

Oh, that's lovely.

The quilting, not the iron. I don't think that appliances actually heal, so a new iron may be in your future.

Stacey said...

very nice....love the color combo

Stella said...

Yeah, maybe you need to call in an understudy.

Love the handquilting -- that's seriously above and beyond.

Is an iron on your wish list?

Ashley said...

Augh, my iron does that ALL THE TIME! Hate! HATE!

Love the placemats though.

heh. Sideline that prima donna. My $15 (+bed/bath/beyond discount, huzzah) black & decker craptastic iron has more control than that.
Your placemats are gorgeous.

Lovely placemats/ quilting. My current iron is not well either and I have a new one in a box. For a year now. I can't seem to give up on the oldie, until it's dead for sure.
