From this angle, the letters seem to be a little bit "uphill". It was drying on a towel when I took the photo, so I think it will be straight when it is pressed.
This was the last block that was ready to stitch. I had not stamped the last four designs, but they were waiting to be transferred to the blocks. My iron of 35 (or so) years betrayed me! It stuck to the paper and pulled it out of position before the entire design was clear! Just a little on one side was too faint, though, so I decided I could pencil it in.
I decided that maybe I had the temperature turned up too hot, so I turned it down for the next one. The same thing happened again, only this time there was not enough of the design to salvage so that block was unusable. Naturally, I didn't learn my lesson and I ruined the fourth one, too!
I can wash the blocks and reuse them, but I will have to re-trace the designs with the tracing pencil before I can re-stamp them.
I think I may have ruined the Teflon finish on the sole plate of my iron during my mis-adventures with t-shirt stabilizer.... I guess a new iron every 35 years isn't too extravagant...
Who knows? Its been so long since I shopped for one, maybe there is new ironing technology! Maybe I will get on that has wi-fi!
