Here is my laundry hanging to dry.
I just washed a bunch of 4-inch paper pieced blocks I made way back in July of 2009. They needed a good wash because the other day my cat, Feather, got locked in my sewing room all day. When I finally discovered him late at night he had been confined for at least 12 hours. He was very happy to get out and I thought all was well. NOT. My sewing room smelled very peculiar (that's putting it nicely). Today I searched and sniffed every pile of fabric in there. I found one small collection of blocks that the poor cat had decided to use as his temporary sandbox. Whew!
After this wash, I hope they will be as good as new. If you want to see some of the blocks, go to the July, 2009 archive here
. I did a block-a-day series that year. There are free paper piecing foundations to print out, too.
