Getting old is NOT fun.

Posted by Irene Gallway on June 14, 2018 at 5:09am 13 Comments

It's a dull day here in the East and I plan to hit the sewing machines as soon as I can get the gumption to get out of this chair, and get dressed. Tues. I walked across town to vote at the elementary school. Yesterday I washed all the floors and rearranged some furniture and today I haven't got enough energy to pull a hat off my head. Old age is NOT my friend. I'm going to a church Supper tonight. I thought it was yesterday. After I got my floors done I took a shower and changed my clothes…

FYI Thimble sizing

MEASURING FOR A THIMBLE

There are several ways you can measure your finger to order the right size thimble to fit you just right. The thimble sizes are based on US ring sizes.

Measure the finger at the base of the nail on the finger that you want to wear the thimble. For taller thimbles, measure between the base of the nail and your first…

Is anyone familiar with this pattern?

I purchased this vintage quilt top at an antique mall two years ago. It has 36 blocks in various colors. The stitching is excellent! I've been unsuccessfully trying to find the name of the pattern or see other examples. Any ideas?…

Skinny fingers...

Posted by Pam/NY on June 12, 2018 at 8:47am 10 Comments

I have been dieting since Thanksgiving. My 45th nursing school reunion is in the Fall. Just my luck, the weight came off my fingers!!! I can't keep my trusty ole thimble on. It keeps flying off. I scotched taped it on! 

What thimble do you find works best for you. I still love the metal ones...probably cause, that's the kind my grandma used and taught me to use.

We have had some spectacular sunsets this…

High Fiber—Inside Out

Posted by Peggy Stuart on June 11, 2018 at 8:30am 2 Comments

It was a short week, due mostly to a medical procedure, part of my preventative care. (That's the "inside" part.) However, that's over, and all is well.…

Hi all! 

Looking at the last time I posted I was shocked to see it’s been almost 2 years! I do pop in from time to time to see what everyone has been working on! 

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and finding time to do some quilting!

One of my latest quilts I quilted for a customer a few months ago! …

People are starting to say their goodbyes to me.

I do the dumbest things

Posted by Irene Gallway on May 30, 2018 at 7:50am 11 Comments

Last week I started a cover to put over a big screen t.v.  I don't remember leaving one of my land line phones on the ironing board in the sewing room but I laid the t.v. cover over it. I have been tearing this apartment apart all week looking for that phone. Even went to the garbage bin thinking I might have thrown it in a trash bag.  Can't you just picture me going through those bags I put out there?  Perhaps the neighbors just thought I had taken up  a new hobby "Dumpster Diving". I tried…
