I made an oops, a painful to the bank type of oops. I melted the inside of D’s favorite jacket. He got it free from work but will cost me $200 to replace. And I will, eventually. Something that I should easily save up for as Im not spending as much this year on stash.
How did I melt it? The dryer was set to Maximum heat when I washed it. Special plastic inside couldnt take the heat and fused. This is what happens when one does not double check what settings are…
A good thing that happened today is D got the roof partially fixed. Instead of making a small patch fix he pulled off that whole part of the roof. Very impressive mess when I got home from shopping. He was able to fix the problem (overlapping shingles so the water drops into the gutter – impressive thinking right?) and has 3/4 of the shingles replaced so far. The rest will have to be finished during lunches Mon & Tues as Wed is bringing back the rain. Will be nice not using all my towels to soak up the leaks.
Crazy Challenge – Today I started Fall Mandala by Ink Circles. Fabric is 32ct Antique White and Im using most of the suggested DMC colors but changed 310 to 844. I will be working on getting the outline complete before filling in all the colors. It looks like a funky Fantasy writer’s map :o)
Flipp’n Challenge – Pirate’s Creed. Main stitching on the skull is complete, now for all the back stitching.
