"I made some more blocks and the "Picture This" one I made a long time ago while taking a class on how to put pictures in quilts. The other photo is my Christmas present from Hubby. The back 4 fabrics has 8 yards of a kit that…"
"Riana, I did a wallhanging based on the same lighthouse a while back in a workshop with Ann Bird, one of Canada's most famous quilters. I just recently sold it. Amazing how Canadian lighthouses and covered bridges can be so…"
"Barbara, The Crown is a movie based in truth (who really knows). So many of my friends are monarchists and adore the monarchy so we used to discuss the Royals, their children, their clothes, and love lives frequently (every time we got…"
"Riana, at least the song isn't about your little dog! Better to sing than to cry. I'm hoping that you will find your pattern. Could you wing it? Just embroider where you think it should be?
I really like the…"
"Thank you everyone! I got the ball rolling this morning by phoning the Hemetologists' office to get the permission to stop taking the aspirins for 7 days before the operation. I left a message for Nina, the admin. asst. there. …"
"Thank you, Gail. I just read about a couple in their fifties who have a 26 year old son who has severe autism and is self-injuring and has been confined to a hospital room for almost a year because there is no funding to put him into a home…"
"Riana, thank you for offering to cut some applecore fabrics for me. You are so good to me! I'm going to send you a UFO next time I get over to the pharmacy for an envelope from the post office inside there. I'll have to…"
"Riana, so nice of you to get up early this morning to wish me well! One nice thing that happened was that Jim was in touch with the distributor in the U.K. for Kekfesto fabric in white with blue design from Hungary. He bought all…"
"Long, sad, story. I went to the eye institute with Jim this morning and was examined by the nurse and the medical student. The Dr. came in and told me that he would not do the surgery this morning and that I had to get the permission of…"
"Thank you, Linda.
Riana, I like the border fabric quilt - I think your friends in Florida will find it inspirational. You got me thinking about some border fabric I've had for a while.
Is the apple core quilt the backing for the border…"
"First thing I did when came to the dining room for breakfast is put on the T.V. I am so fearful that a lockdown will be declared for Monday and my surgery would be cancelled. I am so looking forward to getting fixed up! Of course,…"
"Barbara, thank you for the information. The pillowforms are more expensive here in Canada and I was glad that I did not have to order one from Amazon.ca. I had one still in the bag and it had a zippered cover. Mine was only 12x12…"
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:)
