A Funny Thing Happened on My Way to...

working on a page in Cheryl's book. I can't post a picture yet, but thought I'd share this Oops! moment.

I was using water soluble stabilizer to, well, stabilize some stitching on my page for Cheryl's book. I grabbed a wound bobbin of something white from my sewing machine tool box thingy and stitched away. Wasn't crazy about it, too bad, it worked well enough and I wasn't about to rip it out of this fragile thing that needed stabilizing. Went to wash away the water soluble stablizer, and all the stitching came out too! Turns out the bobbin I pulled out of the tool box thingy was... water soluble thread!! LOL! I don't remember what I used that for or when I wound it! I do know now what used to be in that little bag I found and threw away a couple days ago that was marked "water soluble." Anyway, I was able to redo the stitching with something I liked much better, so it all worked out!

Betsy, this page is just beautiful. I loved reading about how you made it. I'll have to experiment more with my angelina. But first the embellisher. I start a class the end of May on embellishment machine. I can hardly wait.

Thanks, Jo! Maybe you can combine Angelina with Embellisher? I loved your page in Cheryl's book! I took pictures of the pages that were done; I hope to be able to put an album of each book online once they're all done!
