Whattabuy!

 If you are a fuser, or hope one day to be a fuser, or just want to enjoy a bargain, run right over to Walmart and take advantage of this $5 Oven Liner. 23"x16.25" of teflon wonderfulness! Woowoo. Stuff like this made for quilters is usually more like $20. Even tho I have a bigger and much more costly one (like 36x44") I had to take advantage of this and may even go back for another one.
I use one this size in my kitchen for rolling out piecrust and kneading my no-knead bread dough right before I shape it into a loaf. It works great. No sticking ever. But in the studio it is just the right size (and has no slicing mistakes yet) for assembling fused parts.

This shot is from the Process Pledge blogposts (see my sidebar here) where I am showing fusing to the teflon sheet as I construct a part of the quilt. One can fuse over and over again on this sheet and not lose the stickability. So fabu.
Sigh. I couldn't wait to tell you about this great deal.

On the home front, We are ready for our closeup, Mr. Demille.

Everything is glowing with color and light. The trees are still holding onto the leaves and yet the driveway is coated with fallen ones, and walking through them is crinkly and musical. Autumn is just such a lovely time on the mountain.
Here we have a snorting pig...o wait. That's Chumley!

  2. How did I never hear about a teflon sheet? Running out to get one today. Looking at your beautiful home makes me miss the rural life. And the mountains. I've never seen piggies that cute though.

  5. Well this post arrived at the just right time! I was planning to go to the quilt shop and buy a pressing sheet tomorrow! Well, I guess I am off to Nasty-Mart instead. Thank you very, very much! You just saved me $15, which is a yard and a half of fabric these days! And wouldn't be all rather have fabric??

  8. Thanks for the pressing sheet tip. I have a small Goddess sheet in the studio but I need to get another one so Walmart it is!

    I so much love, love, love all the color that surrounds your lovely abode! We talked about being happy with our now-ness but if I could change one thing, it would be the weather and terrain here. I so desire to be where the trees are enormously tall, mountains and hills are nearby, and the temps are cooler but since I can't, I shall continue to love my life as it is and live vicariously through your pics and other similar blog pics.

    Thanks for sharing them Melody.

  11. Fall is surrounding you with all of its beauty! In my mind I am joining you for a cup of chai on the porch to watch a slight mist rise from the pond as the morning wakes the surrounding area. The sun sure does feel good! (raining here.)

  15. Are you saying that you are ironing right on this thing-like an ironing board? And could you roll out sugar cookie dough -with flour or without? Sorry I'm totally unfamiliar with a Teflon sheet. Please tell me more!

  16. Thanks for the explanation, during our (very slow) re-model I have been ironing quilt pieces on a towel on the bathroom counter!Sounds like just what I need!

  17. I got mine at the Dollar Store, believe it or not. But have not seen the baking sheets since. I also saw them at Bed Bath and Beyond.

  18. Love the house & fall colors. Love your little fat pig. Too bad you don't have him truffle trained. (TN has truffles)

    Folks can get the teflon sheets shipped to their store if it is not stocked in their store. Here is the link... http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Heavy-Duty-Oven-Liner/16504522 or go to Walmart's web and put in Oven Liner in the search (it looks black in the photo online but that is just bad photography)

  22. Oh, wow...I'm glad to know that an oven protector sheet is the same as what I use to iron on to keep the fusible off the ironing board. I need another one. Love your beautiful fall color!
