The profusion of color on the left is a fraction of the pile of strips I spent all evening ironing. These treasures are strips Helene Davis gave to me a couple of years ago - and if I am going to use them, they need to be nice and smooth, don't they? Today I am going to iron my own scraps - or at least start the process. It is humid, which makes it a perfect day for ironing. Tune in later.
