Trying Transfer-Eze

Trying this item called Transfer-Eze it suppose to help with your embroidering, make it easier.  You transfer the pattern onto the transfer-eze, you can use your printer and print the pattern right on it and then place on your fabric to be embroider. Well, as it stands now, I am not that impressed with it.  It really makes your fabric stiff and hard to handle, I do have a backing interfacing on, I like that cause it hides the threads.  When I am done, I am to cut away as much as I can and run the rest under water to remove the transfer-eze, I will let you know how that goes, hope this works, because this piece is for an anniversary, coming up soon.  Peace and stitches,

Life in the Winter time!

Here the other bud has bloomed, I was asked a few days ago, how I got a clematis to bloom in the winter?  And inside at that.  It was not planned, please read the earlier post on how I got the clematis.  I just have to get it to stay alive till spring, so I can plant it outside and hope it will live a long time.  A few houses down from my is a beautiful purple clematis that blooms every year and it lives on a lamp post.  I have tried in NC and here to get them to bloom and no luck.  Maybe with this one, that should have die at the nursery, it will live to just show them, that it can live.  It has snowed most of the day here, it is time to start looking at gardening and seed magazines, to see what spring will bring.
Till next time, dream of fabric, color, seeds and what challenge they will bring up,

We most certainly create the world we live in.  Or at least we try to.  But there are times when other people try and lend a helping hand, with their good intentions.  Which may be good for them, but not necessarily for us.  That is why it is important to follow your path, and not get taken down the wrong one.  This sign is in a quilt shop in NC, called, Loving Stitches. Posted by Picasa

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  My blogger Friends

January is a month of renewal, and fresh starts, named for Janus,

the Roman god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings, endings and time.
What will your renewal and fresh start be?
What gates, doors and beginnings will you open?
What will you end and what time will you use?

Thoughts to ponder till next time,
