Many thanks for your reply, I was so scared of opening it and worried if I toot too long to decide the shop would not take it back, unfortunately I took the easy option and sent it back, of course I can always buy it again I now have the credit.
I have never designed a quilt or anything, I am a good follower (you know what I mean) I ended up thinking I may spend more time sorting out the programme and not sewing it could be frustrating.
Today we have the plumber in the house and he will be here for 4 days he tells me, I am confined to my craft room with the electric fire - whos complaining - I am going to do some machine embroidery today.
I am not sure where in the world you are, I am in UK and its frosty and cold today - yes - no heating either, got the thermals on (smile)
Nice to hear from you and look forward to hearing from you in the future, I enjoyed your pics.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. (Good choice for Christmas too!)
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
