Morning All. Turning chilly here and maybe rain later. The birds are very hungry so I'll need torefil the feeders soon.

I find I have to read instructions more than once. And pictures always help. I am directionally challenged in more than just driving, it seems. After you have been making quilt tops for a while, it comes easier, until you try a new method or ruler...

Janice, I think learning a new tool is like learning to play an instrument. Practice, practice, practice.

Good Morning

I hope you are well

Today we will be going to

A garden centre it one of these

Big ones that don’t just sell garden

Items I have a money voucher for

Points plus a money off voucher so

We thought we use it while it still

Valid not sure what we will get

Not sure if I said I ordered some

Variegated thread well they are

Awaiting stock so it may be next

Week before I receive it the Parrs-

Reel Rulers set that I put on eBay

For sale well they did sell but only

Had 1 bidder so went for what I

Had put them on for so a little

Disappppointed & have lost money

But was losing even more while they

Just sat there not being used

The other day I tried out the true cut

360 well didn’t get on very well with it

So will need to practice more this cuts

From 2-12” circle will watch the video again

Well wishing you a Blessed Day take care

Hugs Janice

Love the Wall-hanging Ruthann

With patterns i find that a lot look so nice but when you read the instructions i get lost as they are either written for someone who has a degree or there not enough instructions or it not clear i have several patterns i have got but while i really like them not sure on the instructions to follow it so i tend to either not do them or do my own thing with it lol

Hugs Janice
