As much as I'd love to share with you the fruits of my labor over the past week, you just know that I can't. Of course I'm referring to the designs for my first "yet to be born" line of fabrics.
I've lost count as to how many times I've added, deleted, rearranged, redrawn, redrawn and redrawn again some of the design elements but by jove, I think I'm done!
I'm thrilled with the way things have turned out. All that's left now is to work on the final layout of the design elements on the focus fabric and that'll be done tomorrow night with a friend who is a pro when it comes to computers and graphic design. I'll be able to relax once tomorrow night is over.
What I can share with you is how much I L-O-V-E my Oliso iron.
I use my travel size Rowenta beside me as I sew...
but when it comes to the final ironing, that's when BIG OLI takes over.
I can't tell you how many ironing board covers I've scorched in my lifetime because I just can't make myself take that extra step to stand the iron on it's end. With BIG OLIE, you don't have to do this because once you take your hand off the handle, the little magic genie that lives inside inside lifts the iron about an inch off the pressing surface. The result? No more scorch marks!!! Yay!
They're not cheap and I've heard some negative comments about them but the company stands behind their product 100% and will replace the iron should a problem occur. I'm very happy with mine and I'm looking forward to a long and happy relationship.
