I am in need of two pieces of SMALL print G.I. Joe fabric in cotton or a cotton/poly blend.
The project I'd be making with the fabric calls for (2) 18" X 10" pieces or the equivalent in one whole piece.
If anyone here has some in their stash that they would be willing to part with I would purchase it and pay for the shipping costs as well.
I have looked online and all I'm finding are the large print designs which I cannot use.
Thank you for your…Continue
I asked a little while back for suggestions about my Babylock Quilters Choice Pro, Little Gracie frame with Grace Sure Stitch. Life has been in the way and I haven't had time/courage to try again until yesterday. I took Joleen's advice and loosened the backing a little and Enid's advice a used a Schmetz needle. I used a size 16. I went back and forth over and over and over and over and did NOT break a needle. I knew that in the instruction book it said to use 130/705H needles. I had read it…Continue
More news from Idaho! While we were away there was a freak storm with gusts of 90 mph winds. It all happened in about five minutes according to the mail carrier.
Someone did this video of the storm. A little over the top on the music, though. Guess the locals hadn't seen this in the area for quite some time.
We got back from California on…Continue
Who says an old dog can't learn new tricks? It has only taken me 2 hours but I managed to download pictures of my latest quilt and also some pictures of two totes I made. I am so proud of myself! Now if I could just remember how I did it. I am sure I did it the round about way but I managed all by myself. My kids would be so proud of me!
Thanks so much for your continual support of my writing. It’s been twenty years since I started Butterfield Books Inc., and I appreciate your support over two decades!

We have been remodeling two bathrooms and I had a new double closet and laundry closet put in our master bedroom this summer. It is finally finishing up and I can get back into my sewing room, which has been the"dump" place for everything! I love the new stack w/d in my master bedroom. No more running up and down stairs.…Continue
I'm feeling pretty good and taking my walks in the morning. The leg still bothers me a bit while sitting but I'm able to do lots of sewing. I have taken pictures but can't post them as something has wiped out my pictures and both email accounts. I haven't bothered to get it fixed yet as my computer man is a friend of mine and he has been super busy all Summer.
For those of you who know Yvonne in Canada, I was talking to her on the phone yesterday. She is super busy with spending…Continue
