I avoid having and using all 3 of these things. I don’t like buying anything white. It will get dirty. Whenever I do buy something white, it inevitably gets something on it by the end of the day and it’s not that I’m more careless or messier than the next person, but I can’t keep white things nice. It doesn’t help that I live in the rust belt/limestone belt of the nation either. Anyways, as any good phobic person, I try to stay away from bright white (except for my brief delusion that white kitchen cabinets would be divine with 3 kids). I will buy cream, Kona Snow, and off-white items though. So imagine my dismay when the first block asked for by our Stash Bee hive mama, Heather, called for a bright white background (ugh). I can do this, I thought. It’s just one block-I’ll do it real quick, ship it off and everything will be fine….
The block is a paper pieced Kite/Mill and Stars block. It’s really nice. I unfortunately used a glue stick to keep the fabric on my paper and then scorched the glue when I was giving it a final press. I’ve dabbed it with water but I can still see the scorched glue so I will be making a second block and not using glue this time–wish me luck or I’m going to have to go buy more white Kona.
