I finally turned on the iron yesterday. I kept putting it off until I had a big pile to press. I first pressed the seams on the middle section of 15 rows and sewed it to the first section of 12 rows. That is the only sewing I did all day. I had lots of scraps that needed to be cut but they all needed pressing first. I spent about 2 hours pressing and die cutting. It was also errand day so I got out in the sunshine for awhile. My two friends are coming over to sew today so I'll get something accomplished.
