Confessions of a Quilt-aholic: Least Favorite Part Of Sewing

im-taking-a-cocktail-break-not-from-sewing-just-from-the-ironing--ffaaa

I don’t know about anyone else, but however much I love sewing, and however much fun I have while sewing, there is still a feeling of dread about it. I hate ironing! I mean, it is literally one of my least favorite things! I wish I could afford to pay someone to just do the ironing while I keep sewing! You know, typically I feel pretty good about sewing, but when I quilt with smaller pieces I know that it means a lot of ironing! I don’t know why I hate it, but I just do. Especially when I sew during the warmer months! In the winter I cn get away with more ironing before I start to get queasy, but during the summer, it is the largest deterrent from sewing!

I guess if it is the only downside to making all of my fun projects, I guess I will just have to deal with it!

So what is everyone’s least favorite part of their craft?

Still Stripping, or Should I Say Strip Piecing?

Well, I got the first set of pieces ironed and now I am running them through the machine again for the third strip. Hopefully I’ll iron them, and then start cutting the rail fence blocks. Although, I do work today, and my yard needs some work done so I won’t hold my breath! Wish me luck!
