This weekend as I began my February blocks on my Craftsy Block of the Month , yes, I know it's March but that's not important right now, I grabbed one of my favorite sewing tools and thought....."I really should blog about these!"
So, I am.....1. Procrastinating on making those February blocks again and.....2. Sharing with you the joy of finding a couple of products that absolutely do what they are suppose to do without any fuss and there is no learning curve, just plain simple things that work.
(sounds like the description of someone's perfect guy...plain, simple and works)...
But seriously (I find that hard to be sometimes) there are all kinds of things out there for marking on fabric. I came across the "Frixion" pen at a quilt store recently. I was skeptical because so many of the chalks and markers I have used have not been so easy to remove, though they claim to be "disappearing" or "wash away".
If you sew, this pen will be a welcome addition to your stash of tools.
It's one of those things that when you use it, you are glad you have it because it really IS a great product.
And coming to you now from Canada is Norwex. I know, I know, one more thing to buy and hate....but wait....while I had a healthy dose of skepticism when my sister approached me about this new line, I bought one of these Anti-bac microfiber window cleaning cloth because she's my sister.
She promised me that I would love it. That my windows would look like this.....
....Instead of this
I said "Are you buying me a house on the lake?"
Well, of course she wasn't but she was going to make me love washing windows....????
I hate to admit it but, she was right and I will NEVER buy another bottle of window cleaner again....EVER. Use a wet cloth first (you might try this one Anti bac Envirocloth ) and use the Anti-bac microfiber window cleaning cloth to dry them off. I swear (and I don't do that very often) you will be amazed! Easy, streak free, beautiful windows with just water.
You may wonder what this product has to do with crafting, well, I thoroughly enjoy looking out my sewing room window now....it's so darn clean :)
