Fall is in the air. This tree is across the street and is already losing leaves. Other trees have barely started turning.
Now, for the winner of yesterday’s Lapel Stick. First, I said NO REPLY people would automatically be disqualified. Image how I felt when the first three comments were all no reply. Numbers 4 and 5 were too but they put their email in their comment so they were included. Those of you NO REPLY with blogger accounts, go to your profile page, click on the Edit Profile button (top right corner), put a check mark in the box after Show my email address, scroll down and SAVE. If you don’t save it, it isn’t done. Those of you with Google+, almost all of you are no reply, I wish I could help you but I don’t know how to get your email enabled.
Now for the winner, 19 people were in the drawing. I did it the old fashioned way of writing names on slips of paper and picking one out of the pile. The winner is KadyB.
Today anyone in the US can enter. My second test for the Lapel Stick was for a binding all by machine. I quilted a little sample of 3 layers and sewed my binding onto the front side.
Then I put a very small amount of the Lapel Stick glue near the fold edge of the binding and pressed it in place with my fingers on the back side of the sample. Then I stitched from the right side and caught the folded edge with my stitching. I even glued the corner in place with a very light coating of glue and it didn’t move. I can’t stand the idea of a stream of wet glue on my quilts so I was happy with this thin coating of glue stick that doesn’t gum up my needle.
