Wonder-Under is more greener

The folks at Pellon are so good to me. Every year, they send me boltage of Wonder-Under to use for my own work and for my teaching. I love Wonder-Under and use it in all of my work. One thing that was annoying me was the plastic instruction sheet that is wound on the bolt along with the fusible. It annoys me to deal with it and it's plastic, something I'd rather limit to places I have to use it.

So, I'm very happy to see that now Wonder-Under instructions come on a lightweight recyclable paper printed with green ink.

Now I can start thinking of uses for the paper. I don't think it's will be usable as a cover sheet, the way the paper on the Wonder-Under itself can be, since they specifically prepare that, but it will come in handy for note taking while I work on quilts.

San Antonio/Kerrville Texax

I am now in Kerrville, getting ready to speak to the guild here tomorrow, Monday March 15. Oh no, that's the Ides of March... and apparently today was Pi Day. I was in San Antonio starting on Thursday. Great group on San Antonio.

I would show you a cute picture I took of two women from the guild, who took my class on Friday and completed their samples, but I forgot to ask their permission and get their names. So instead, I will show you a picture of the waffles I had yesterday morning. (And again today). Texans seem to be very proud of their state. Illini, not so much. I have never seen waffles the shape of Illinois.
