My Creative Space





I've been working on my dress making things this week. I made a pressing ham last Saturday to iron my darts and princess seams. And I also got this new whiz bang iron on Sunday on the way home from the fair. It's great! There's not even any wadding melted on it yet. And can I say, "Quilt basting spray, where have you been all my life?!". I got some on the cheap at the fair. And it's the best! I always screw up the basting, and have puckers and things. Now, can anyone teach me how to quilt well please?



More creative spaces over with Kirsty!

P.S. I used one of my fancy tags for the first time too!

That's such a cute ham! I have that iron and I love it! Actually it's lasted really well too - I think I've had it a few years now and not a speck of rust or anything! :) K

There's nothing like a great iron, is there? Whizz bang indeed! The labels are beautiful, love to hear where they came from too!

Linda said...

Umatji said...

ha! haven't seen a ham since I lived at home. I loved my mum's and had forgotten all about it till I saw your post. I never understood it as a little kid but that never stopped me involving it in my little world in some crazy play or way!

Leslie said...

I just recently discovered basting spray and I love it! But I can't help with the quilting as I'm only good at hand quilting which is impossibly slow. :)

Alison said...

Very nice pressing ham. And very nice lables to.

Michelle said...

That mustt be the best looking ham around. Very nice labels too.
