Next thing is to remember what Pat told me about stitching the fused items down. I will have to do some practice stitching before I work on the real flowers.

Renee Plains "Flower Shop" progress
At "Thimbles" Friday night I got back to work on the "Flower Shop" piece I began at "Primitives" in Missouri. I have all the blocks fused. Oh wait, let me tell you a little about my first fusing. There are big differences in that fusible web stuff. It helps to know what you are doing. I had forgotten the web I'd bought in MO, so I stopped at Hobby Lobby on the way to Thimbles to purchase more. There were so many types; I did my best to get what I needed, but the stuff I bought was dreadful. The web part would not stick to the sheet no matter what I did. I just hope I didn't do any damage to Chris' iron or ironing sheet. I had some of the other web at home, so that is what I used today, except on the pots because it wasn't wide enough. Also, don't look too close at the pots; at least all my flowers face the same way! (Oh, freaking DUH! I just checked Renee's picture, and I can see I did all my flowers facing the wrong way. Well, GEEZ, at least they are CONSISTENT!)
