I decided to be brave and tackle the pressing of my vintage blocks. The most annoying thing about it is that for every seam pressed correctly, the iron nudges four other seams in the wrong direction. To counteract that, I borrowed Mereth's mini iron, which has a 4" sole plate. It was perfect for the job, only pressing the seams I wanted it to. There's no steam either, so no burnt fingers.
We visited our friend Helen's farm last week and had a lovely morning tea, before a wander around the garden. The crysanthemums were lovely this year, I bought another 6 to add to the 18 I already have. There are so many varieties I don't have, all the lovely ornate old ones, so I'm going to keep collecting them whenever I see them.
