Little Juicy Fingers
I've been working on another block for the Roseville Album Quilt. I'm calling this one the Father's Day block. (More on that later.) I applique at my little rocking settee in the dining area. The morning light shines in through the window behind me as I sit and stitch. It is such good lighting but, alas, it is also quite near the food preparation and eating area. Hince the stains on the top and bottom of my block. GASP!
I think it was from the grandkids but at this point it isn't about the blame - it's about how am I going to get these stains out. The block was folded in half so I have a big stain at the bottom and a smaller stain at the top of the block.
This is the delightfully delicious culprit of the the red fingers who touched my block to probably move it out of the way so they could sit on a stool at the bar and continue to nibble to their little hearts content.
You can see the block in the background. I need to remember to move it into another room when I baby-sit each week.
So. . . . any thoughts on how to remove raspberry stains?
Back to the block's name - I'm calling this the "Father's Day" block because these little blossoms remind me of carnations. Years ago when my DH was seated on the stand each Sunday, I would get him a carnation boutonniere on Father's Day. He seemed to like it.
I've decided to finish appliquing the block and then try and remove the stain. If it's a stubborn one - I'll just figure out a way to applique over it.
You just never know. . .
