I know, some consider it a sickness, but I really do enjoy pressing fabric. Even large yardage. It’s relaxing. And there’s all that anticipation of what you will do with that fabric if you ever pull it out of your stash again, once it’s all pressed and ready and waiting. I have been guilty of prewashing but not pressing lately, so I got up at 3:30 this morning to press. 😉
Well, that’s not the whole story. As you know, I have a back problem and will be having a fusion at the end of the month. My wonderful doctor has prescribed Fentanyl pain patches for me and they WORK! I can’t believe how much better I feel. However, the medication seems to wind me up a bit and I’m awake when I should be asleep. I did get 4.5 hours of good sleep tonight, but just woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep and the thought of all those flat folds I bought but didn’t press began to weigh on my mind. So, I got up and pressed. I have one of those nifty Euro Steam Irons (a steamer, actually), and I made it through about 30 yards of fabric. I think I’ll go turn on the alarm radio (it generally puts me right out) and see if I can grab another few hours of shut-eye before work.
Have a great day all.
