"I've been feeling quite good so I decided to take a break from physio and see how I do on my own. I went down 2 sizes in pants but my top is still the same. I hope I can still do my exercises and eat healthy by myself.
"Just came back from the QOV Sew Day. I stayed until 12:30 and got in over 3 hours of sewing. I was amazed how many people show up at these and haven't any idea how to sew, do not even have a sewing machine, and can't press a…"

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:)
