Day 8 Needful Things…

12-days-of-xmas-ornaments-8

DAY 8-STEAM-A-SEAM 2 LIGHT

img_9164

I know this is a busy weekend…so this post will be short and sweet…

The new and improved Steam-A-Seam2 LITE..

This is my go to fusible web for wool appliqué…for one main reason…You cannot over heat this fusible…I use tons of heat and steam when using it and it sticks to my background like its supposed to… I know when it is first laid down the fusible may be a little “gunky” but leave it sit out and rest a bit and it will a lot better than if you just fuse it down and start stitching…what I mean by “gunky” is the needle gets a little sticky residue on it..which can easily be removed by a little alcohol pad, a piece of wool or your emery…if you can’t wait a day or so to stitch…

Couple of Hints…

Trace all the pieced close together that share the same piece of wool…cut them out as a group instead of individually…this saves so much time.  Also…say your doing 100 flowers…place the wool on the fusible…trace a box on the fusible the same size as the wool.  Start tracing your flowers in this shape and you will get all 100 of them on it and then just rough cut about an 1/8″ away from the outer flowers, remove the backing paper and place the fusible on the wool…iron WITHOUT STEAM.  Then cut out the flower shapes on the lines and then remove the backing paper and place flowers on background…iron with lots of STEAM in an up and down motion…always keeping the iron moving!!!

The tacky-ness of the fusible web makes it a dream for laying out your stems/vines and appliqué shapes…you also do not have to cut your vines on the diagonal as wool bends nicely as is…once in place you steam as stated earlier…

The new papers have a yellow grid on them…nice for when you need to be on a straight line and they are easily ignored if you do not need them…they used to be blue…

So this is just a few things about the SAS2Lite that I love…it’s a busy day…so We have the 5 page packs of it on sale for $4…if you order 5 we bring it down to $18.75…like getting 1 and a half free!…So stock up if you need to! We have both the light and regular on sale…I know some of you use the regular and not the lite.

Here is my tree skirt I finally finished yesterday…I blew it up from the tablemat/small tree skirt pattern in new Christmas Gatherings book...and made one, it measure 44″…I LOVE IT!  Great inspiration to trim the tree and put it under!!!img_9158 img_9159 img_9160 img_9163img_9166

I probably should have taken this at night…it was much prettier..this is part of the pub/theater room in the new house…I just plunked it right in the middle…

So we will pick 5 winners to receive a pack of SAS2lite…Your comment will be on…Do you have snow on the ground where you will be celebrating Christmas?…Tell me where…lets see where we are all from…I know someone from England won a prize yesterday???

Yesterday Tape measure winners!!!

Both tape measures are great but the 120 inch one is a must have! I have put my borders on both ways but Suzy Peterson taught me the correct way to measure for borders. She was a great teacher and friend and one who brought joy to classes or shopping at the store. Her quilting knowledge and color coordination was superb! After being with her, one always felt a better person! Janet Kay

Love it when you give tips to help us Quilter’s. we can always use a reminder of the right way to do things and of course I have had wavy borders, but not for awhile. Thanks for all your good advise

My sister in law taught me just about everything. Except we started at all the very hard stuff. She always said “you can do it”. She is the most generous person I know. All her sewing stuff is yours to use. Fabric, lace, trim. I mean everything. She even takes women to her cabin in upper michigan for a sewing stitch n bitch and pretty much spends the whole time helping. I pretty much owe my addiction to her! Lol

You Ladies have until 12-31-16 to claim your prize! Congrats!

    Greetings from Alaska! It’s a white Christmas here, but with barely a ground cover of snow …..it’s raining now. We are hoping that it doesn’t all melt. Love steam a seam 2 lite!

    We have a dusting of fresh snow on the ground here in east Albuquerque! Nothing, though, like you have in the mid-west or eastern US. Your tree skirt is fabulous!

    We have plenty of snow here in Huntertown, Indiana, although today we’re getting freezing rain. Hope there’s still some snow on the ground for Christmas, but it’s actually supposed to get warmer right before. I’d like to try some Steam a seam. Merry Christmas!

    Cold but no snow in Austin Texas. Seldom have any, but occasionally enough to let the kids out of school to build snowmen. Thanks for your SteamASeam2 lite tips, I will now feel comfortable trying it.

    Lots of snow, coming down as I type this here in Maine. I was lucky enough to be in your class this summer at the Maine Quilt Show and got to see that beautiful tree skirt while you were working on it. The red wool is absolutely gorgeous and the finished product is stunning!!

    There will definitely be snow where I am spending Christmas — Jackson, WY. My mom lives there. We have snow here in Ohio right now, but warmer temps and drizzly rain are getting rid of it slowly today.

    Hello from Palmdale, California…no snow here but we do sometimes get a small dusting about every 8 years or so. I fell in love with wool appliqué when I walked into your booth at Road to California about 6 years ago. I’ve tried other fusible but non stic like steam a seam 2.

    December 17, 2016 at 2:27 pm

    We have plenty of snow, just like you Lisa. I live just down the road in Appleton, WI. At a matter of fact, it is snowing right next w as I sew.

    December 17, 2016 at 2:34 pm

    Yes, there is snow where we will be celebrating Christmas this year – La Porte City, Iowa. Love your new Christmas tree skirt. I haven’t tried the new Steam-a-seam Lite yet. I’ll need to get my order in for some while it’s on sale. Stay warm!

  22. December 17, 2016 at 2:35 pm

    Sadly no snow in Alabama! I do love the white stuff!

    December 17, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    Snow for Christmas would be wonderful! Doesn’t appear that it will happen this year though, snow is not a regular thing in the Hill Country of Texas! In January and February is the usual time for a bit sleet, but snow is a no show! Merry Christmas, Lisa, and to your family also!

    Hi Lisa, Merry Christmas! We will be here at home in Port St. Lucie, FL to celebrate Christmas. I can only dream about snow. It’s about 85 degrees today. No snow in sight. There hasn’t been snow this far south since 1989, before I got here. Maybe next year we’ll get up to Schofield, WI to visit family and have a white Christmas=:)

    a few inches of snow on the ground and it is just starting into a blizzard with a bitter cold wind- here in Northeast Iowa. Good day to tuck in and make soup and sew, right? And or read a book and watch it snow!

    No snow but have tornado warning out till 8PM. It’s 73 degrees and expected to have thunderstorms tonight and possibly 1/4 inch of ice by morning. Never know what the weather will be in northwest Tennessee.

    December 17, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    Snow, snow, snow … the snow is everywhere and more to come! For sure we will have a white Christmas in Grand Bend, Ontario. Lisa, you introduced the Huron Woods Quilters to Steam A Seam Lite 2 and we all love it and we all use it!! I so look forward to your 12 Days of Christmas. All year long fellow quilters say where did you get that gadget or that tool and I say – Lisa’s 12 Days of Christmas. Merry Christmas and thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    I love the new steam a seam lite. I used it on the primitive garden wool quilt that I finished. Earlier this year. I live in Arizona no snow here but we are having high winds and rain.

    I willbe celebrating Christmas with my daughter in Atlanta (after driving from North Carolina) and then we five will meet up with my son and his family on the 26th for a Disney cruise. My hubby and I were planning on taking the family on this for our 50th anniversary but then he passed away last year — I know he’d want us to go as a family anyway — so off we go. We will still celebrate our long and happy marriage. So – no snow in NC, GA or FL — hoping my son in VA gets no snow too!!! Love the Steam a Seam Lite on all you wool projects – it’s my go-to also!!!

    We will celebrate in Georgia where we are still having fairly warm weather. Do not expect any snow.
    I love steam-a-seam fusible. Thanks for introducing me to it.

    I’ll be celebrating this Christmas in beautiful, sunny Lakewood, California! No snow-ever, but we do get to see the snow at my brothers home during our Christmas face time chat in Virginia City, Nevada! I know…not quite the same! Lol

  44. 44 Pat Creehan
    December 17, 2016 at 2:55 pm

    I will be in Raleigh NC so hopefully no snow. I have been going there for most Christmas’ for probably 30 years. We have had a couple of Christmas snows. It usually melts by the next day

  45. 45 Sharron
    December 17, 2016 at 2:59 pm

    Right now it is snowing great huge flakes. It is so peaceful looking. But, at Christmas we are going to a more sunny destination to visit our daughter and granddaughter. They don’t know we’re coming. It will be such a great surprise when we knock on the door Christmas Eve. So much fun!!!

    I live in Michigan and we got another 4-6″ last night!! 😞😞 It’s pretty at first but when you have to drive in it I hate it and then it’s dirty!! Could be worse ice is worst!!

  47. 47 Karin Pavlovsky
    December 17, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    no snow and probably won’t have any as I live in sunny Hemet, CA, I get cold when it is 70 degrees so this is the place for me. I always say I was so glad my Swedish grandparents came to Ca. instead of Minnesota as I would be a popsicle

  48. 48 John Scibran
    December 17, 2016 at 3:04 pm

    Just got 6″ of snow this morning. Hopefully, it will stay for Christmas (we are supposed to get rain tomorrow, so I hope it doesn’t all melt). Christmas is here in Belmont, NH.

  49. December 17, 2016 at 3:07 pm

    I live in southern Illinois, so we can have a sunny bright day and then turn to snow by afternoon/evening. One never knows.

  50. December 17, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    No snow on the ground here in western WA, but we did have a few little flurries this AM and it is cold. Brrr! I love SAS! Thanks for the tips on tracing multiples~ I never thought about making a box the size of my wool piece- perfect!

  51. December 17, 2016 at 3:08 pm

    We have snow here in Lethbridge, Alberta and it is really cold the last couple of weeks. We were spoiled as last winter we didn’t have snow at Christmas time and very little after. Nice to hear that they are bringing out a different SASL2. I really like the ability to move it around.

  52. 52 Ruth Ann
    December 17, 2016 at 3:09 pm

    No snow here in San Antonio, TX. Its almost 80 right now. I just told my husband I wanted to turn on the AC! But tts supposed to be in the 30’s tonight, so I am holding out.

    December 17, 2016 at 3:11 pm

    It’s not snowing here but it has finally cooled off; especially at night. I would like to see a little snow-its a novelty here.

    I live in Surprise, AZ, a suburb of Phoenix, AZ! As I type this, I am in shorts and tank top because there is no snow here and it is currently beautiful in the 60s! Ever since I married 27 years ago and moved here from Fremont, WI, just down the road from you, I have seen it snow exactly 2 times here. Do I miss the snow-no, not me! Love the sun and staying warm year round! Merry Christmas!

    December 17, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    No snow yet in St. Louis but it’s coming our way this afternoon. We’ll be in Dallas on Christmas day where my brother in-law just posted that it’s 70 degrees.

  58. 58 Beth T.

    December 17, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    Supposed to be 72 here today and it’s 83!! whew! so crazy….so I would hazard a guess and say probably no snow here on the ground or anywhere. It would be really fun to have a white Christmas sometime in south Georgia. We will probably be able to take a nice long walk that day and enjoy the sunshine! Thanks for the giveaway.

  62. 62 timbersmith63
    December 17, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    No, down here in GA, we don’t have snow, and probably won’t although we would love it!! We try to take our children to see some once a year so that they have a little experience with snow!!! We would love a white Christmas!!

    Here in Michigan we have about 10 inches on the ground. The temps have been below freezing! Heat wave today it is 26 degrees out. Looks like we will have a white Christmas as there is more snow in the forecast for next week. Love to use SSL2 thanks to taking one of your applique classes! 🙂

    Greetings from NW Iowa! We just received a
    fresh new 5 inches of snow last night and are bracing ourself for record cold temperatures
    tonight of 29 below zero and up to 50 below wind chill! 💨 burrrrrr! I plan to stay close to the fire!
    We will spend Xmas with my sister and family!

  67. 67 Trudy Bakrer

    I am in Kansas and the current temperature is 6 degrees and it is snowing heavily. Whether or not it will be here on Christmas Day is anybody’s guess! I use Steam a seam lite a lot and really like it too.

  68. 68 marie
    December 17, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    I love Steam/seam Lite 2–I use it on all my wool projects–which are many. I disliked the blue lines, so hopefully the new yellow will be a great improvement. We have snow/ice on the ground in Salem, OR and in the 20’s, but will warm up on Monday to 40’s so likely we will have no snow for Christmas.

  69. 69 Alice

    December 17, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    Snow? For sure, I’m sick of snow already and it’s only mid December……..lol. Suppose to be 12C tomorrow, so hopefully it melts.

    December 17, 2016 at 3:29 pm

    I have never experienced a white Christmas and this year appears to be no different. I am originally from Texas and now live in the triangle area of North Carolina:; at least the weather is cooler.

  73. 73 Donna Durall
    December 17, 2016 at 3:32 pm

    Yes, we will have a white Christmas where I live in NE Washington State. It snowed several days ago but have had such cold days, won’t melt. Woke up to 2 degrees this morning. Love SAS lite! Was so sad when they stopped making it a few years ago because it has always been my go to fusible. But we are back at it now.

  74. 74 annita
    December 17, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    SNOW! and lots of it, with more on the way, Decorah, Iowa. I have not used the SAS lite or regular. My New Year’s resolution is to try new/improved techniques within my quilting endeavors. Tree looks amazing in the center of the room and can be enjoyed from every angle.

  75. 75 Jody Randall
    December 17, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    I’m in central Ohio, we have snow but it’s been freezing rain all day and foggy! Has been a perfect day to hole up in my room sewing. 🙂 snow may be gone by Christmas though. Love SAS light, was frustrated when it went away for awhile.

  76. 76 Julie Scott
    December 17, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    No snow for us in the San Joaquin Valley of California. But it’s cold!!

  77. 77 Nicole Mays
    December 17, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    It was cold enough for earmuffs here in Sacramento, CA, earlier this morning, but no snow and none predicted for Christmas. Love steam-a-seam 2.

  78. 78 Barbara Whitehead
    December 17, 2016 at 3:38 pm

    Yes, we have 6 inches of snow in central Maine. Unfortunately they are calling for rain tomorrow so it will probably be gone by Christmas

  79. 79 Kathleen
    December 17, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    I am enjoying the Winter in sunny Mesa, AZ! No snow here!

    I love your 12 days of Christmas, Lisa. We have snow here in Saskatchewan. It doesn’t happen very often where we have a brown Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing

  81. 81 Cheryl Keown
    December 17, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Look forward to your 12 days of Christmas. Today we have a thin layer of ice and just a small dusting of snow in central Illinois.

  82. 82 Sheila Snyder
    December 17, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Here in Michigan we have about 9″. It’s a really beautiful time of year-hopefully it will last until after Christmas. Nothing says Christmas more then a little snow on the ground! 🙂 AND thank you for showing the Steam Lite 2. I am working on a big wool project and it likes like that product would help immensely with my appliqued quilt.

  83. 83 Carol
    December 17, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    We have snow here in Littleton Co (suburb of Denver). My husband recently had shoulder surgery and can’t shovel so it was my job this morning. Thank goodness I have a nice neighbor who helped me with his snowblower. I always have trouble with buying some appliqué sheets here in CO because they would always separate because of the dry climate. Anxious to try your SSLite

  84. 84 Ma
    December 17, 2016 at 3:48 pm

    We definitely have snow in central Upper Peninsula of Michigan – also very, very cold temperatures.

    December 17, 2016 at 3:50 pm

    We have snow on the ground and it is snowing right now. Beautiful outside. We will be celebrating here in Potosi, WI so we should be able to go sledding.

    Elko, NV – we got about 4 munches of snow Monday but then we got a couple of days with temps in the 40s and rain so most of it is gone now. The forecast is for more snow at the end of the week. I’m rooting for a white Christmas! Merry Christmas to everyone!

  92. December 17, 2016 at 3:56 pm

    I love the steam-a-seam 2 lite. It is so easy to work with! We do not have snow here in Fountain Valley, California. We are right next to Huntington Beach aka Surf City USA. Our high today is 59 degrees, which is very cold for us.

    Greetings from the Naples, Fl area where it’s in the 80’s and there won’t be any snow. Steam a Seam 2 lite is my go based on your sage advice. I like it so much better than the other options out there.

    I live in NY near Lake Ontario. We often times miss the great snow that you hear of in Buffalo but last night received about 4″. So today it is starting to rain! So I just came inside from building my snowman.

    Heading from Georgia to Pennsylvania for Christmas with family and I hope there will be a little snow there. I miss it here in the south. Started using S a S Lite after taking your class several years ago and it’s my favorite for sure. ( hard to find locally)

    I love SASII lite. I buy it by the yards for appliqué on wool and cotton, and I use it up fast. I have been using it was quit a few years, and I have used it in the printer to save time.

    No snow predicted for Christmas here in North Texas but temperatures are quickly dropping this afternoon. I finished last minute shopping at 1:30 p.m. When I got home it was 71 degrees and now at 4:00 p.m. it’s 42, with expected low in the 20’s. I haven’t tried Steam a Seam as my local quilt doesn’t carry it but I’m going to try it!

    We’ll be at the beach, Hermosa Beach, on Christmas Day but are heading up to Big Bear Lake, CA the morning after. We are up at the cabin now and it snowed last night. The boys are skiing but I am…stitching, of course!!

  102. December 17, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    Clifton Park, NY (near Albany) – we have about 4 inches on the ground. It snowed this morning and was supposed to turn to rain, but it never warmed up enough to rain. We haven’t had a white Christmas in a few years, so I hope the snow can hang on for another week. Last year it was so warm here we didn’t need coats to go to church on Christmas Eve and my husband wore his short sleeved Santa Hawaiian shirt on Christmas Day.

    I live in Southern Illinois, just outside of St. Louis, MO. There is no snow on the ground, which is not unusual for us. However, we are currently working on an ice storm with the potential of an inch or so. Perfect sewing weather!

    I live in central NY where we are famous or maybe infamous for our snow. It was frigid cold, blizzard conditions two days ago. This morning was got several more inches. Even if it does not snow again, there will still be enough snow for a white Christmas.

    No snow on the ground here in Southern California, but we did get some welcome rain this week. Where I live, close to the foothills we have had snow occasionally when it gets cold enough, but it melts quickly.

  107. December 17, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    Hi Lisa. Love the Angel Tree Skirt! One of the Peachtree City, GA gang and no snow on the ground. Spending Christmas in Norfolk, VA with our Sailor Beauty. Might get a dusting there. Keep warm. Merry Christmas!

    Lots of snow here in Marinette. It is a great snowy and cold weekend to stay in and finish my Ole St. Nick wool pictures I picked up during your Christmas open house a few weeks agp. I am making four of them for gifts. Of course one is for me. Always happy to see a White Christmas as we leave right after Christmas for sunny Florida for the winter. I am going to introduce my quilt group in Florida to quilting with wool. I love it.

    Yes, storm has been here all day, probably got 6″ and still snowing, way out in the country, some small towns don’t plow right away, so it’s a challenge to get around. Supposed to be rain tomorrow that will turn all this into ice. It’s not going to be good to get to church in the morning. Did get some much needed shopping finished, so I am very glad. Im in central Maine. Your tree looks tall like ours. It’s 15 ft and really pretty and hard to decorate for sure.

    I live in Sheboygan, WI and we got about 7 inches of snow so far today and are expecting a few more before it stops tonight. Then the very cold and windy weather with wind chills of -20 are expected. Don’t know about more before Christmas, but what we have already will certainly make our Christmas white.! I haven’t tried Steam a Seam but want to try it. Being new to wool applique, I have been given different ways to hold pieces in place from stapling to pinning to heat and bond to glueing. The Steam a Seam sounds worth a try as I haven’t had much luck with some of the other methods!

    Well I live in Cincinnati, Ohio and yesterday the temps were in the 20’s, freezing rain overnight and today is in the 59’s and tomorrow will be back below freezing. So I would say it is anybody’s guess whether we will have snow here or not!!!!

  112. December 17, 2016 at 4:26 pm

    I’m in Minnesota, and we have been getting snow almost everyday this week. It’s going to be a white Christmas for sure!

    Where we used to live, In Rochester, NY, there is plenty of snow on the ground. My granddaughters were out playing in it today. Here in Little River, SC, near the beach, it’s 64 degrees and Christmas Day will be warm and sunny! It’s harder to feel like Christmas, but my arthritis doesn’t mind. Love your Christmas tree – so pretty!

    December 17, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    We are having the most wonderful snow today (and tomorrow). It’s light and fluffy and spectacular. Here in eastern Iowa we are only supposed to receive 1-3 inches; I’m glad we’re not living further north where the snow accumulation is going to be really heavy. Our family had our celebration last weekend. We had a bit of snow but not this much; that made travel better which is always a concern. I have not worked with wool, yet, but your posting sure makes me think I should. When I do, I’ll remember that Steam a Seam lite is the perfect fusible to work with. Love the tree skirt and LOVE your high ceiling – what a perfect way to display a gorgeous tree. It must take a huge ladder to decorate. I even have to use a ladder on my 7 foot tree.

    I’m from North Carolina. No snow yet. It has been 36 one day and then 74 the next. It does get really cold in January and February. My Mom once told me that if you don’t like the weather, just wait, it will change in a day or two.

    Here in central Missouri we have a treacherous coating of ice which is being frosted with a light coating of snow. We’re supposed to get 2-3 inches yet today. However, it is supposed to warm up to the 40s by the middle of the week, so it doesn’t look like we’ll have a white Christmas. Darn! I’m glad the ice will be gone, but a nice coating of snow would be so nice!

    We have snow on the ground in Montana, and today we had recycled snow. That’s when the wind is blowing and the snow that has already been on the ground is kicked back up and blowing all over. I woke up to -26 º below zero with a windchill of -63º, I would love to spend my winters where it is warm. Ranching is not a fun job in the winter that is for sure. Carol Jo crazymtqt@aol.com

    It is cold here in Spokane, WA, about 12 degrees this aft. It will be around zero tonight. We have about 6 ” of snow and it looks like we will definitely have a white Christmas! I love Steam a Seam lite. I learned about it from you , I am doing the Somewhere in Time from 2015. I just used a small amt. of another a fusible web that I had in the cupboard on a small project and it was a nightmare! I didn’t want to raid my supply for the Somewhere in Time project! I learned my lesson! Yes, I would love to win this!

    I live in Utah and yesterday as I was baking gingerbread cookies the snow was falling and I couldn’t help but sing “It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas”. With a week until Christmas we could have it either way, more snow or it could all melt, but the mountains are snow covered and beautiful. I agree that Steam a Seam Lite is the only way to go.

    I have used this product ever since you introduced me to it at the Village Dry Goods retreat in 2013.
    We DON’T have snow on the ground (other than in the surrounding mountains)–that is unreal for northern Utah in December. We have had warm rain for the last few days and now we are in a deep freeze. It is crazy.

    I’m not sure what I like best, the triangle papers or the Steam a Seam II lite. After some time away from quilting I am now ready to dive in to all the great projects. I’m a caretaker to my 81 year old husband and felt I needed to organize and simplify a few things to make life manageable. I downloaded all the 6″ blocks and can hardly wait to begin that. I am patient, but I need the help of these products. Thanks, Lisa for all your tips and inspiration.

    Here in the suburbs of Detroit we don’t always have a white Christmas. But this year we have about 8″ of snow on the ground. The temperatures look to be staying low and so we will have a very white and beautiful Christmas. Having the snow really enhances the excitement of the coming holy day for me.
    I always have trouble with the gunk on my needle with steam a seam. But I’m going to give it another try with your instructions.

    I am just up the road from you…….in Green Bay. We have lots of snow. However, stayed inside and got lots of things done for Christmas. Was at your Christmas open house and picked up a wool kit. Will be working on that this winter. Happy Holidays!!

    My complete family, 3 households, 7 people trek to tomahawk, some years in some awful weather, but there’s almost always snow. When the kids were small they skated on the lake & sled down the hill. Now, if open, they snowmobile. I love all the small stores decorated for christmas. Best of all, no WiFi, so we’re really together

    No snow here in Copperas Cove TX. It was 80° today and about 5 pm the cold came barreling through and it is now 31° and feels like 17°. How does one dress for this crazy weather? Rarely get snow but do get the ice. Love using SAS2lite!!!

    Yes, we have snow in Massachusetts!
    9 inches fell today and it was like a winter wonderland all day. But I spent some time fusing Backyard Gatherings using Steam a Seam! I first learned of this product from Primitive Gatherings!
    I would love to win a package!

    That is the only steam a seam I will use. If I can’t find right away the project has to wait. I’m from Sarnia, Ontario, Canada and yes we have about 12 inches of snow right now.

  191. December 17, 2016 at 9:52 pm

    That’s a beautiful tree skirt.
    I live on the central coast of California so there’s no snow here. It has been pretty cold for us the last few days and we enjoyed some very much needed rain this week. Merry Christmas!

    Our family is gathering in Rochester, MN, for Christmas. I am fairly certain Christmas will be white. This year we have lots of the fluffy white stuff called snow. Last weekend we got 6″ and between yesterday and today another 4-6″ arrived. Bitter cold also swept in this week so we hope that will moderate a bit. Lite Steam a Seam 2 is a wonderful product. What a great prize to offer!

    No snow in Cleburne, Texas, but today it went from 80 degrees at noon to 25 degrees at 10:00 p.m. Yikes!! Love Steam a seam lite 2. I have been buying it from you by the yard … it makes working with wool so much easier.

    Yes, we have plenty of snow! We are in a nice resort town of Coeur d’ Alene, ID nestled in the mountains , by the lakes and lots of pine trees and wildlife! Since skiing is one of the popular sports here, the snow is needed. I like it for a White Christmas, but then I immediately look forward to Spring! 🙂

    No snow for Christmas in Fresno, California, We have lived here for over 30 years and it has snowed twice, less than an inch each time. But we have wonderful thick fog. So beautiful if you do not have to drive,

    I live in Conyers, Georgia about 30 miles east of Atlanta. We have no snow and won’t have any for the big day. Our snow, if we have any, is usually after the first of the year.

    I love ❤️ using steam a seam. I have used different weights depending on the application.

    We’re due south of you in the western suburbs of Chicago, Carol Stream, IL to be specific. We will definitely have snow here as it has snowed the last 3 weekends. The arctic blast is supposed to hit tomorrow and we head up to the Wisconsin Dells area on Monday for a few days of R & R with the kids and grandkids – well maybe not so much R & R with a 4, 2 and 1 year old. LOL! I always enjoy your needful things posts.

    Lots and lots of snow in Baraboo, WI. Finally stopped snowing today, but tomorrow it is suppose to be bitterly cold and windy. So all of that snow will be drifting, and my husband will have to be out snow blowing the same snow that he snow blowed today.

    We have had snow and fresh snow overnight here in Northern Illinois. I have 7 labs, they LOVE the snow. So much fun watching them play outside. Doggie snow angels. Christmas Day is quiet, my children all go off to their in-laws then we get together for a second Christmas in a couple of weeks. I am back to quilting after years of raising children and working, now it’s my time to do the things I enjoy. I have not used Steam a Seam but would like to try it on the appliqués I plan on putting on the border of my Magic of Christmas quilt. Merry Christmas everyone!

Now don’t get too jealous cuz during the summers we are in the 100’s. So I will enjoy this weather while I can:-) I would love to try this fusible.

    No snow here in California but it does feel “cold” to us. My daughter is in Wyoming and she has been telling us of temperatures below zero! Thank you for the opportunity for this prize. I’ve been looking for a different fusible, as sometimes the one I use does not adhere the wool to my project which gets frustrating.

    Rain overnight has melted some of the snow here in Pennsylvania. The cold winds will be blowing back in this afternoon. We are hoping that we will have a little of the white stuff left a week from now for Christmas.

    Good morning from Southeastern Ct where it has been raining away the few inches of pretty snow we got yesterday. boo hoo. I went around my chores yesterday singing “It’s beginnning to look a lot like Christmas”, but not today. Looks like it will be bare brown ground for next weekend. I’m a Wisconsin girl and don’t mind the snow at all… well… just not LOTS. ha

    In Sequim WA we do not often have a white Christmas. The town is between mountains and the ocean. The snow covered mountains make for a beautiful view at this time of year. Thanks for the hints on using the SAS2 Lite for a wool project. I’m a beginner with stitching wool projects.

    I live in Vancouver – you know, the “other” Vancouver – WA that is….we are in the throes of low temps combined with just enough snow to make everything icy. They say that it should be raining again in a few days so I don’t think we will have a “white” christmas, but maybe a safer one to get around in. I pray for those in the midwest and east who are experiencing such terrible storms.

    No snow here in Houston, but still wishing for a White Christmas. I love the Steam a Seam lite. I’ve tried Soft Fuse, but it doesn’t stick to the wool very well, so SAS lite is my go to fusible now. It’s too hard to wait after I iron everything down, but I’ve been patient this time. Watching football today while having a project to work on makes my day, I would love more SAS for more projects.

    We live in the Canaan Valley of West Virginia — 3,500 feet above sea level with two ski resorts that are very close by. It would be wonderful if the weather would cooperate with real snow this year to bolster our economy. We had some snow last week, lots of rain overnight, and now it’s snowing again. Love your tree skirt; may have to purchase your new book. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful tips!

    We have snow on the ground in Salem, Utah. We have a couple of inches, but the nearby mountains have enough to make the skiers happy. I like the Steam-a Seam fusible, but I have difficulty getting rid of the stickiness after fusing.

    Oh yes we have snow in Northern Illinois and tonite it is going to be -15 below. I like the snow but with warmer weaather,is that possible. I also love to use steam a seam it stays put. I do alot of applique and it works the best.

  238. December 19, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Merry Christmas from Minnesota … love steam-a-seam. Christmas brunch is what I am planning now. Plus we are going to do take away bingo later on Christmas day. Haven’t done this for years, everyone is looking forward to this. After New year’s, looking forward to some serious projects in the started bins.
