the question was posed how i wash my charms and yes, i do use a lingerie bag. first i scrunch up the squares to make sure they all get washed. once out of the dryer, ironing is necessary but at least i know they have been washed and dried. and yes, i have already chosen a patten and started cutting out the pieces for a small hand-pieced project. what fun!

recently participated in a civil war reproduction charm swap and so these arrived in the mail yesterday. it is the most frugal way to obtain new stash. first a quick trip to washer, then dryer, then into the stash for future small quilt projects. *** dodged the SNOW bullet, but it is chilly for april here this morning. maybe spring will come NEXT week? there is always hope....and BTW, a happy birthday to Gladys Taber, author of the "stillmeadow" books. if you haven't read one, you are in for a delightful sojourn!
