Adopting a working pattern has had an advantage. Starting 20 blocks and working the same stage on all 20 before moving onto the next stage was a bit of a revelation (probably common sense to some) and meant I completed all 20 today (9 hours work). It's a working method I would follow in other textile/embroidery disciplines so can't think why it wasn't obvious in the first place! For the first time in a long time I am keeping a record of the hours worked so will probably blog about it more than usual. I apologise in advance for repetition of similar posts.
It started out as an exercise to try and cut down on the amount of time the iron was on ............ ironing each stage on all 20 blocks then switching it off rather than leave it on all day. My iron is 2000w .......... am wondering about getting a 1200w one for £2.99 at Argos if it means saving on electric. Would this be a significant saving or false economy?
