Oh, Wilma, so sorry. You know, I hope, that one and all of us could be the next to "dump". Trouble has a way of spreading itself out. Some get more than their fair share, but we all get some and we all need each other to listen and care. I am glad you and all the rest of our swapping friends are here for each other. And I am so glad to have a passion to fill the good and bad days. It makes a lot of difference.
Girl we all need to do that.
Oh Wilma I’m so sorry. Yes aging is not fun. It’s been 6 mo for my mom n even though she can walk she still falls n they have carpet.
I am so sorry Wilma. I pray for you to have strength and patience to get through this troubling time. Aging parents are so difficult. It requires us to switch the role we grew up with and become the parent. Prayers for you my friend.
So sorry, Wilma! Praying for you and your Husb. for strength, patience, and the memories of the loving woman she was to help you through this. Switching roles with our parents is a part of life that I don't think any of us were prepared for.
I am working on my blocks this week. Fusible is all traced. My question is this: How do I stop the background from coming thru? I have a navy snowflake background with white snow couple. I have not fused them down on the background yet. I could probably find something else, but wanted to use a night stroll theme. Help please.
Another thought that might work, would anyone be apposed to me using cuddle fabric instead of cotton for my snow couple? It would create a little dimension, but not much.
I do not mind. I think it would be cute. You could still quilt over it and it wouldn’t cause a problem. :). I vote yes
Fine with me. If you think it will work then i'm sure it will.
Okay by me, Beth.
I will make one up and see how it looks than, hopefully tonight. Will post a photo so you can see the difference. I quilt with cuddle all the time and it is very pliable. Love it for backs for sure.
We have several blocks that will have a little dimension in them so that would fit.
