Yesterday's post ended with this piece of fabric in a quart sized canning jar. 
All washed out and pressed! 40" only shrunk to 39 1/2" yeah!!

And for some close up shots. 

I read about this method in the Fall 1995 issue of American Quilter. The article was written by Vimala McClure. Here is what the lead page of the article looked like. 

It was the top picture of the "batching" fabric in jelly jars that first caught my attention. The rest, as they say, is history! It's definitely a part of MY story. If you have any questions about this method, leave a comment and I will try to answer quickly. 

And King Tut thread, by Superior Threads, to use with my longarm machine. Arriving any day!📦🚚

I am such a happy camper. 😎🚎

The Lord has blessed me greatly. May He also bless you with people that make your heart sing. 

Remember to create a little something every day.

Thanks for stopping by. I like to keep track of my friends and what they are doing too. My Granmother was going to teach me to tat, but things got busy in her life and then her health failed. She did help me learn to embroider. My poor Gramps, his handkerchiefs had all manner of stitches that a little girl of 6 would like to do. He never complained, and Kleenex was NOT an option when I was young! I'm looking forward to your next post about your tatting. And, next time you drop by, leave the address for your blog in your comments so others can find you too.
May God bless you with heart warming memories,
