Rainbows and ironing

A nice pile of rainbow coloured fabric taken off a display hanger.

The said hanger with the fabric removed - the threads left behind make a very pleasing pattern - it's a bit tricky to see in the photograph but trust me it is pretty!

And actual ironing has taken place in my house today. Fabric ironing for crafty projects you understand and not the ironing you are supposed to do to your clothes!

Those little piles of fabric are destined to be made into pincushion chickens if I get off my backside and get sewing this afternoon - it's only 1pm here so there is hope yet :)

What, you're supposed to iron clothes? Oops. I only press fabrics for sewing. ;)

I like that stripey fabric. I think it will make a really great chicken.
