"Deanna, congratulations on baby Kendyl. I like her name - sounds sweet!
Mary, thinking about you and Paul. Doctors can do so much now. I hope that they figure out how to help him soon.
I drove outside of Ottawa today to Notre Dame…"
"Oh Riana, you machine quilted the QOV so splendidly! I just sandwiched a QOV this morning and I will start quilting it, maybe, this afternoon.
Ginny, I named our group who meet Tues. and Thurs. mornings an Arts & Crafts group because…"
"Thank you everyone. I am going to iron the top of my QOV today. Your QOV are just wonderful, Deanna, and you organized a very successful sewing day.

"Carla, I was confused when my first pattern came that we have to send $5. for the other patterns? No one has mentioned it since in all the responses.

"What a cutie! Riana, this reminds me of my daughter, Suzalie, before she could walk, she would crawl over to our bookcase and yank out every book she could reach! It was her favourite thing to do.
Backing for Hopscotch is ready. I am now…"
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:)
