My car has this bad habit of turning right off the highway and pulling into fabric/craft stores. Today it was JoAnns. I had every intention of coming straight home after having lunch with a DGrD in her school, but there I was, so I might as well go in.
Here's what I came home with -
A padded "Sewing Center" that has grid marks, heat proof liner for pressing and pockets along the front for gadgets.
Invisible grip film to put on the back of plastic quilt templates. This should help my frustration with them sliding around when I'm using my rotary cutting tool.
Chalk marker & refill - hope this does better than the marking pencils which drag on the fabric.
1/4" quilters tape. Though my machine sews 1/4" from edge of foot to needle, I want this for teaching DGrDs to quilt. They haven't mastered they eye/foot thing yet.
Machine quilting gripper gloves. My current free-motion quilt project has told me that these old hands are going to get real sore trying to keep everything in line.
Not complaining - DH has had numerous hobbies over the years, now it's MY turn. I hope the kids understand I'm spending their inheritance.
