"Thank you Wilma, Riana, Linda, and Gail.
When I was in Malaga, Spain, the tour manager knew I wanted to look for cotton fabric. He scouted out the town before he took us the next day to 3 fabric stores. I bought some cute teddy bear…"
I have some of my daughter's huckleberry jam now. I make peanut butter and jam sandwiches with it. I have asked for peaches in honey, salsa and yellow relish when she comes to see me this month. Good exchange for the…"
Yes, it is Huckleberry Jam. Suzalie tells me that she picked all the berries too.
I'm working on putting the blocks of the QAYG quilt into sections of 4 blocks. Not easy. I got the middle seams a little off centre in…"

"Thank you, Ginny. The full-size patterns for Country Cupboard and other good pieced and applique blocks are from a book called "100 best full-size Quilts Blocks & Borders" which came out in 2005 with a surlox binding. I…"
Suzalie brought me Saskatoon Berry Jelly when she was last here to visit. It was good. I think that she said that she picks them. I also thought she had written Buckleberry but I'll check it again. I'll…"
"Hi Ginny and Barbara,
I didn't teach my daughter how to cook. I actually don't know who did. She makes all her foods from scratch. Every morning she bakes breakfast and serves up her free range chickens' eggs. …"

I cut Swiffer covers with smaller pieces of batting and…"
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:)
