I thought I’d be a good little vegemite this morning and strip Elise’s bed completly and wash everything -sheets, blankets, quilt etc.
The plan worked like clockwork, until I pulled her quilt out of the machine. Now it didn’t sit in the machine waiting for me to get to it. The washing machine beeped and I answered straight away. The fabric that I used for the binding has RUN!!!
Not everywhere, but in enough places I could cry. Mum came down and had a look. We sprayed it with a stain remover – working on the theory that we couldn’t make it much worse, and I washed it again. Well it’s no worse, but the stains are still there. Ahrrrrrrrrrrrr I know there are products you can use to remove fabric stains like that but I’m a bit frightened that they might make the binding fabric run more.
I dread to think what Elise is going to say when she gets home. I’m not pleased, so I am damm sure she won’t be either. The silly thing is I washed (really well) that fabric before I used it for the binding. I wash ALL my fabrics before using them. It didn’t run when I washed it, so why did it now?
My day was going so well until that happened. Never mind, I’m still annoyed, but there is nothing I can do about it. Hopefully the sun will fade some of that staining – a little. I’m telling myself that things happen for a reason, just not sure what the reason is – yet.
Right I’m off to get Ashley’s lunch ready, then to spend a pleasant, though probably messy, afternoon sorting fabrics out for Sharon’s Class that starts Thursday – Yipee!!! plus I want to peice up two or three more needlecases just so I have something to go on with in my idle moments – whatever they are…lol.
