I looked at the 6 inch blocks. They are nice - not too hard to make. Thank you.
I was quilting yesterday with a guild in Navan. I used to belong to the guild but I just have to pay $12. instead of $10. as a…"
"Riana, I must apologize. The raccoon isn't fat at all. He was just unfinished! He looks like the most perfect raccoon I've ever seen with his yellow bow tie. And the fox is perfect too!
Jake want to be with the…"
I love that raccoon! He looks like he just shared a turkey dinner with all the trimmings with someone! He isn't as skinny as the Pinterest model. Waiting with bated breath to see your version of the…"
"Hi Mary, I wish that you could have been with us too! It is amazing to me how much I taught myself. My second bowl was so much better than my first.
Riana, you included a puzzle for us along with your photos. I didn't think at…"
"On Tues. Linda and I team taught a class for our friends at A&C on microwavable bowls. I have put the instructions with photos on my facebook page. I found there were a few steps that aren't mentioned in the instructions you…"
I looked again at mine and the word is CASIGE with an E at the end. So we have solved the mystery. I love toy sewing machines. I didn't have one when I was a kid. Lots of quilt shop owners have them on display…"
I don't like to rain on your parade but the Bernina Stitch Regulator is not included under the Bernina warranty. They cost $1500. CAN here in Canada and I'm on my 3rd one with this machine. I've been…"
"I have a collection of toy sewing machines. I don't have one like yours, Riana. It is probably English or German - my guess. Barbara, it could also be a Singer- but the flowers on it would make it unusual. "
"Happy Thanksgiving to all! Riana gets to celebrate twice but Carol and I have to wait for Christmas for more turkey.
I just spent 2 hours this morning sewing Churn Dashes. I just love the colours I am using. I had a nightmare last…"
"Mary, the Bernina dealer here in Kanata has Black Friday sales on machines. But I'm not tempted today.
I hope that the "Spa" is doing a rush job on your machine, Riana.
We have a blanket of white on the ground since…"
If you find one at 50% off, reserve one for me too. I looked at the site of a U.S. Bernina dealer and the new 500 series is already in. They have a bigger throat space than previously, Riana."
"Mary, If I gave you the idea of looking at a new Bernina....a hundred lashes for me (but only if you buy one) LOL
My daughter phoned me from B.C. and said that she was coming to visit me in Dec. before Christmas. She has to check in with her…"
If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
Our reno chaos replace w/grandchild chaos,llol...they've redecorated our den w/toys. Our daughter's family move turned into a nightmare due to a realtor's mistake on dates...almost blew the deal out of the water at the last minute...after all packed & onnthe truck! The grand have been here since Fri., age 7,5 , & 2...couple of exhausted grandparents here, but grateful to be able to help dd when under huge emotional stress.
