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…"
"Thank you, Ginny. Hubby and I had breakfast with our younger son, Jim, this morning. He has lots of good stories and keeps us laughing.
I then bought my second pair of Jeggings (jeans+ leggings) I am so tired of wearing baggy pants…"
"I'm almost ready to go downstairs to the party room to cut out more churn dashes.
Riana, I used a 770 (I think) when I went to the 3 day Sewapuloosa 2 years ago. I was so hard for me to catch on how to use it. That's why I was…"
"Thank you, Barbara.
I'm working now on Stack and Whack scraps. I had some layers of 4 fabrics all pinned leftover from a SnW I did years ago. I sewed them into 3 1/2" squares and now I'm selecting a light, med. and…"
This is my latest finish - my Stepping Stones Quilt. I enjoyed making this quilt. It went fast. I machine quilted it in a large meandering motif.
Linda, I am sorry that you have had a recurrence of your illness. I'm thinking…"
I hope that the triangles aren't too small if you are piecing a backing out of them. And I am always proud of you! Someone put that bag of triangles in the bin when your back was turned knowing you would find them and use…"
"Oh Barbara, I'm sorry! You don't have any nice squirrels in your yard. I don't have a yard. My condo looks over a paved parking lot. I see them from afar.
I'm still working on my Stepping Stones 1 quilt…"
"I like squirrels too. When we were in Greece awhile ago, we had a tour guide who seemed to love squirrels and pronounced their name as squeerrels. Hubby and I thought it so cute when she pointed them out that we adopted 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:)
