Hi Diana, I was pleased to see you posting. I was getting a bit concerned, I hadn't heard or seen any post from you. I'm sure your husband can put the problem right or contact the connecting threads admin, they r helpful. I haven't done much for a while, weather been too hot, I need to get out the embroidery that your husband was going to help with. I will be in touch.
Hi Dianne, thankyou for your reply and suggestions to sort out the embroidery machine. Well, i did what you suggested and it did not sort it out. I dont have a card to put embroidery on, only a usb stick. Where would i get one from and can you tell me the name of it for when i order one. Thanks again. Marianne
Hi dianne, i think i recall you having a brother 40000, i have done something to the settings without knowing it, i cannot change the speed of the straight stitch or should i say i dont know how to do it, hope you can help.......there goes my sewing afternoon, its like a snail....
Hi , thanks for your reply, yes i agree it is large, but so stimulating. I dont think i will make either, i should be resting anyway after the last of the aussie rellies went last week...5 different lots since february, did enjoy them, but am so tired, trying to get back to normal. I must try and master the embroidery machine, i think i just dont spend enough time to concentrate, you do such lovely work, i think i need to learn how to hoop better and how to position too. Keep stitchin..ttfn M
Good morning diana, i was wondering if you are going to NEC quilt show early august. I have been trying to find an organized trip from here but no one seems to be going. I suppose its a long way to drive alone, i am still looking for a group though who may have a spare seat. Hope you are well and enjoying the snatches of summer we have had. Ttfn
I cannot remember if i sent you a thankyou for the quilt, we had an event your quilt was purchased by a wonderful lady who had had arthritis in her hands since teens been unable to quilt or sew, but always wanted to have one to hand down to her grandchild, this is a dream come true for her, i thought you would like to know that, we made over £300, thanks again from Samaritans and me. Hope you r well, spring is almost here, cannot wait.
Hi Diana, I now have your details to communicate with, much appreciated.
I think Northampton must have lots of crafters, my friend in Great Ayton has a brother who is a G.P. in Northampton and he noticed his sister knitting, when asked what are you doing, she replied, knitting baby vests for the Fish & Chip Baby project, he said, thats just the project for some of my patients, well I cannot tell you the amount of knitted vests I have received over 5,000 in total, they go to Tanzania via a charity Smiles to Tanzania, but they are now telling me I have to send them via another charity Jacobs Well, lots of bureaucracy, I am just the conduit to place them, but the fact that they come from Northampton was a coincidence. My garage is full at the moment, I am about to ask them to knit small blankets instead, they can be used by more children I think, in more countries. Enough of my babbling on, must go and collect the Grandchildren from School.....
I have just had the postman call with the wonderful donated quilt you have so kindly donated for the Samaritans, it is so lovely, I cannot wait to tell the committee, I am thinking we should have a really big Quilt Raffle - perhaps get some others too, this could be something BIG.....I may get others donating too, I do hope so. Your Quilt is certainly the beginning of Spring, its so sunny, many thanks. I wanted to send you a little token, but have no address. I have the name and post code, just give me the middle bit (smile) please.
