No I did not know what I was doing the last time I popped in around these parts.
Several times over I appliqued pieces on and then promptly removed them. Let me just say my frustration level was near to having me jump ship. Luckily, I decided it was myself
I needed to remove.....
......and so I did!
I put my hands to work on a bit of housekeeping that involved
a recently acquired stash of vintage hankies.
This little dapper duck was especially charming, even if he was of the applique variety!
Several good soaks were required to remove years of mustiness.
Finally, a quiet spell hanging them up to dry.....
.....and my mood was officially lifted!
I was back to the drawing board this morning and am delighted to say
things are smooth sailing now.
