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.
lt's going to be tough coming up w/fresh ideas , being last to add to this.Some of the things l'd thought of are already in the quilt...some twice, ( well, we ALL love sewing!). But then, l still have time. First need to get through this long weekend...daughter's family is moving Tues., so staying here in interum, as beds apart, bedding packed etc.
Guess you folks have travelled enough...we're just starting, but I'm sure that after some time we'll have quenched the wanderlust and be content to stay put...after all, we have a nice place, and when you don't HAVE to go out in it, the snow's not even that bad:)
l never sent my own row's photo, l'll do that maybe tomorrow. l kept it a secret 'cause my instructions a bit unusual, and l didn't want someone "pefabbing" an addition, then finding out tgey couldn't use it. Mine is being constructed in vertical rows, each row sewn up but not attached to the next, as l may need to add "fill", mine being a rather wide , but not tall bed-topper:)
WWWWRR. The owner completes a whole row, then sends it along w/instructions as to colour preference, size , theme to next person. Then the second in line adds another whole row etc. Some of us need rows pinned together, not sewn (sashing). The first personal message I sent you had 2 photos, Sue's & mine. in case #2 photo didn't show, I sent it again. The next set of picures were 3 of Linda's quilt so far, and 1 photo of my first addition blocks. Let me know if you can't see all 4 photos...maybe I need to shrink the format, or send separately. We're not posting photos or discriptions on profiles or groups, because each of us wants the surprise at the end, and I trust you will honour that:))
Sounds like the meds have him a bit muddled. But no male likes being told what to do & not do...it's universal, llol! l'm sure he realizes deep down how lucky he is that he has you for support. A friend of mine phrased it well, a few yrs. back...she called it the "grumpy old man sindrome":)
You'll love Bermuda. We spent our honeymoon there 46 yr. ago. The houses were almost all pink stucco, and no cars allowed except business/taxi. The only stop light on the island was for the drawbridge. l don't know what's changed, but tge people are wonderful, and tge shopping fantastic ( though expensive).
Have a safe & happy New Yr. We'll be well on the way by then , just packing up :)
Hi, Elizabeth,just noticed your question on drive to Ogdensburg...( we usually cross at Thousand ls.), l'm guessing 2 1/2 hr, give or tamk. One hour 15 min. to Kingston from Thomasburg ( if /when no construction...they're "improving just s. of Kingston on northbound) and another 45 to Brockville, then what 20 min.? We went to Ganonoque when travelling east last yr. Took all afternoon because of continuous construction delays, but not so bad this yr.
lol...wow! we had quite a thread going here! i was going to write and ask about the pics and the whole story right here on my page! i am strange too, and would have reacted the same way! but ya know, it isn't just the nigerians mining fb etc. and now i learn that Google has been reading emails of g-mail users. what they send and what they recieve. mining for marketing ideas to target users pages. son talked me into opening a goggle circle thing, got mad when i didn't post personal pic or real name. of course he doens't use it anymore & i am glad i held out. because google circles is probably as big a target now as fb. we are lucky at mqp..seems pretty safe so far.
On Dustin's, the blocks were done like rail fence and then a wedge piece was sewn onto opposing corners. All that curved piecing, with matching points, about did me in! That one took a looonng time to finish. The blocks, themselves, were very small - 6".
On Judy's Garden, I found a pattern with a wavy border and applied it to my quilt. I tried to blind stitch it with my machine, but I didn't like how it looked, so I ended up appliqueing the whole border. The BOM was offered by a lqs and when they were all on display for voting, mine was the smallest one up there. Never dreamed it would win!
