Froggie, in keeping on subject and in the quilting frame of mind....it was "hexie" wire. LOL Well officially called Hexagonal Netting. That's plain old fashioned "chicken wire" for all us country folk. :-)

Eileen your quilt is beautiful!

Eileen, do you have a long arm, or did you do your quilting on your domestic machine??  That's one gorgeous quilt!

Eileen!  Thank you for that eye candy of the Mystery quilt!  I'm still on Part 2, but now I want to see mine finished.  I used that same line but with blue.

No more AG workshops for me.  One, I didn't get done with a project; two, left my embroidery machine at the shop for repair; and three, spent way too much money on the sales!

Seems my embroidery machine isn't supposed to make that grinding sound that causes bobbin to move, thread to break, and machine to come to a halt. I just had it serviced in February and picked it up at the end of February.  It's been like that since I bought it back in 2007.   I've been told by the owner of the shop they'll fix it and I'll get it back in proper working order.  I told her when they call me to pick up the machine, I'm stitching out that same design it kept dying on, and she told me that was a great idea!  

I did get to use the new Pfaff Creative Sensation Pro to do the mug rug project, but I have to finish it here at home.   Love the new machine!  What a difference!  The darn thing purrs!  Mine sounds like a dilapidated John Deer tractor in need of an overhaul compared to the new one!

I did get to bring home the machine they serviced for me, Pfaff Passport.  Guess I'll be using that to finish my mystery quilt, Amish blocks, and my LL block.  Yes I know, for shame, I'm so behind on everything.

Eileen your qult is beautiful.  Lot of work there.  Froggie..umm onion soup..my favorite.  The best onion soup I,,v ever had...was about 40 years ago, in Montreal...I can still remember the wonderful taste..I think we should all take a trip to Old Montreal.  We can maybe visit with our buddy, Francine?

Thanks so much....It was the first time I have attempted a quilt with all those sharp corners that have meet. Ann had many great tips for us and my points look much better. Really learned a lot from that quilt and hope to keep on learning. That's why I joined this, I'm sure there is so much to learn from many of you.

So funny Sheila...ok here you go.

Eileen - no fair! You finish quilting the mystery and keep us hanging??? LOL! Pictures, hon - PICTURES!

Yes, Froggie, you can do soup & sammies twice in one day. I've done pizza for all 3 meals before. Granted, it gets old pretty quick but, it's allowed. The soup & sammie police don't come & grab you.

Mary Agnes, I've heard of baskets made so tightly that they can hold water. Me? I just use a bucket. Yep - That's what I do. LOL!

Cold again, MaryAgnes? When will it warm up and you can put away the coats? Then we will be yelling because it's so hot! Maybe the pool will be ready and fun to play in by then, though.

Oh that's right, Mary Alice, I forgot that. OK I used it once! Thanks for correcting me! You crack me up. Good idea, have them see it in action! Even when I take my 'evidence', they still don't get it sometimes. Look at this mess!!!

What is bunny deterrent wire, Kathy? Barbed wire? Electric fence? You are sew evil! That purse sounds very interesting, too. OH so you have done a few before. It looks great to me!

Have fun with the candle mats, Eileen, you sure are hopping in and getting started on them. I loved making them.

I had fun with my friend today, we went to Panera Bread for lunch, I ordered the wrong sandwich, but it was good. And I had French onion soup. Yum. Now I have to think about dinner, maybe we can have sammiches and soup. Oh that was lunch. Can I do it again?
