Gin steam

I know... funny title.   Read the quote:

Really funny, right???

I made this for my best friend's mom's girlfriend.  We spent hours ironing table linens prior to Sarah's wedding reception, and I think we both now share a mutual loathe for the iron.  (By the way, I tried to get out of ironing-- I was so over it, but C.C. really just kept at it for the entire time... i think i went to go find some gin!)  Anyhow, this will be a cute hanging in a laundry room!


  • Tim's kraft-core metallic paper cut with his alter frame die and punched with carrots hole punches
  • The iron was backed with more of Tim's paper from a 6x6" stack
  • The yarn was from the quilt show smorgasbord of fiber, adhered wth Glossy Accents 
  • The girl (named Kelly Jo) is by Hero Arts, inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black. The dress was paper-pieced with a scrap
  • Fine gold stickles accented the iron and Kelly Jo
  • The quote was typed on my old typewriter and edged with various DIs
I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
