I'm afraid Halloween may be a wash-out here. Rain is predicted. Right now the humidity is at 94 per cent and the high will be around 80. After the front moves through, we will have cooler temperatures again. I do hope the rain will either come early or hold off until late so the little ones will be able to Trick or Treat.
Yesterday, I messed up my newly straightened room to fuse some fabric. Last night, I cleaned up much of it again, but today, I think I'm going to fuse some more.
Unlike some quilters who fuse all or most of their fabrics, I enjoy piecing, so don't want to fuse it all. Just when it seems the end is in sight, another piece of fabric says, "I'm just a scrap, fuse me!" The resulting mess of fused and unfused, organizing decisions, and clean up sometimes takes longer than I expect. Have been re-reading Fusing Fun! by Laura Wasilowski (of the Chicago School of Fusing :) and realizing how much easier I could have made things if I'd remembered to incorporate all of her ideas and techniques. She has a lot of tips on creating fused art quilts that I've not been using. Also found some little fused items and small pieces from months ago that need to be in the "fused section."
On to the fusing fun!
