"Ginny, thank you for explaining patience to me and being sympathetic to my lack of it. This is why I probably jump around so much in my quilting and stay away from difficult techniques and patterns. I'll just have to try…"
"Riana, your Biblical Quilt is a masterpiece! Nice that you learned a new technique for binding. It looks special on the quilt, as Gail said.
Kris, your Kaleidoscope Quilt is beautiful! I have a Ricky Timms video that I bought at a…"
"Barbara, I use the edge of the table to get the quilt laid down straight and then use binder clips and I have pencil markings of the center of the table in pencil on my white table. Then, I use masking tape where I can't use clips. …"
"Tomorrow is International Jelly Roll Day, Sept. 19. I'm going to start making one!
I lost my cool at the bank today. I am ashamed! I vowed yesterday to be kinder. Wilma, you are good. I am reminded to be like you."
"Barbara, I have a Barbie Empress of China and Barbie Carnival Cruise unopened and several toy sewing machines unused and in the original boxes. I also have a collection of toy sewing machines and thimbles from all over the world. …"
"I was just amazed, Zoe, about what you went through cleaning up after the hurricane. I've never experienced anything like what you had to do. I'm so glad that you and your Mother are safe. You have such nice, supportive…"
"P.S. I was going to tell my son that Doug needed a Go Baby for his 90th birthday but he had already bought him 2 cordoroy pants and a big package of socks. But he will be phoning me for hints as to what Doug would like for Christmas…"
"Yes, Riana, the Go Baby is carried at a quilt store in Bells Corners (on the way to Kanata) and it is expensive. While watching T.V. last night I traced applique patterns on Heat 'n Bond Lite for 6" blocks. So I don't mind…"
"Riana, I'm jealous - you have a Go Baby! I wonder if I'd use one if I had one. We don't use dryer sheets so I couldn't sew strips to one. I could use Ricky Timms soft interfacing I have lots of sheets."
"Wilma, I looked at the site of My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe. It looks like a very nice store. I wish that I was into machine embroidery.
I spoke to my daughter on-line yesterday. No wild fires in her area of central B.C. She…"
"Riana, I talk on-line with a new quilter, named Nicole, who lives in Belleville. She shops at the Fabricland in Belleville and at a quilt shop on Hwy. #2.
I looked at the classes offered by Sew Steady and I would need to get into ruler work to…"
"Wilma, your remodelling project sounds so nice! We have thought about a reno of our kitchen, then decided we were too old to worry about it. Where did you find free virtual classes? I have seen some virtual classes that…"
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.
