This week-end I am going to relax, sew and play on the computer. Oh, I'll fit my exercises in too. Hubby bought dinner yesterday from the Hot Bar at Farm Boy. We are enjoying the convenience of choosing a main…"
"Thank you, Riana. Did you notice that the Georgia Barns block pattern is very similar to a block you had made in one of your improv quilts?
I am enjoying my new computer and monitor. I also play on my lap top and tablet every day. Jim…"
"Thank you, Ginny, Barbara, and Wilma.
I was going to iron this morning but I changed my mind and started cutting out another quilt. My cleaning lady bought some wonderful fall FQs and she halved them all and gave me half for my birthday in…"
"I made a QOV from a kit I signed out and then I liked the pattern "Portuguese Tiles" so much I made another quilt for a friend who was sick. The squares that I added another square on top were 3 1/2". So I drew the line on…"
"Still going to physio 3 times a week and doing an hour of exercises at home faithfully on the days I do not go to physio. I have a throw size quilt ready to cut the batting and sew a backing for. And I'm sewing the rows together of…"
"I've finished a small quilt made out of bonus HST's. Now I picked out the orphan blocks from a box I have and decided I have enough for another small quilt. I have friends who do not see well - one of them would like the one…"

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:)
