Default Steam-A-Seam venting....

Grrrrr....just have to vent a bit after spending half the evening
trying to finish my Pizza wallhanging with some lettering. (I own a
pizza restaurant, and we do custom-made pizzas that take a while to
prepare and bake, which makes new customers cranky sometimes if they
are in a hurry. I was inspired watching that Pizza Party video on QNN
to make a wallhanging to hang above the kitchen that says, Not Fast,
Just Good..... I bought the material during last year's Shop Hop so it
was great to have something to make with it.) Anyway, I'm using that
iron-on stuff to speed this process along, and it was fine for the
pepperonis and green peppers, but I forgot about doing the lettering
backwards after spending an hour carefully drawing the lettering,
tracing it onto the Steam-A-Seam paper and ALMOST sticking it to the
fabric. WHEW!!!! I had to put it away before I did something drastic. I
hate it when I want to keep working on something but my brain wants to
stop so it lets me do stupid things that I spend hours ripping back out
later.

So I'm here venting. Thanks for listening. I've been enjoying
everyones' posts and photos. There are some GREAT projects here and
lots of talent. I wish I had all day to quilt instead of working making
pizzas but at least I get to use creative energy and people are happy.
Just not long-lasting like quilts.

Annie, that's not a mistake. That's a 'learning experience!' I'll take
green peppers and mushrooms on mine. 8^) Nancycog in MD

Thinking backwards is sooo difficult for me when I'm tired. There's a crib
quilt here just finished. It has 17 appliquéd cats. Some are wandering to
the left, a few to the right. I figured it didn't matter, no one would
believe cats being orderly - unless, of course, they were marching to the
tune of an electric can opener. Polly

I know how you feel, Annie -- it's so frustrating to do that sort of
thing. The good thing about it, though, is that you caught yourself in
time and didn't fuse the letters and waste the fabric!
