About Me
So, I haven't updated my page since I joined and some things have changed. Both of my children got married in 2011. DS in May and DD in July. I now have 3 grandchildren from DS & DDIL. They are curently living with us as DS is in training in Arizona and will be heading off to Korea in June for a year. I am getting to know the 2 oldest GKs better and enjoying the youngest who is 5 months old. You forget how much "stuff" kids can have.
I have a new Embroidery machine , Brother Quattro, that has been upgraded to the Quattro 2. What can I say, I love it. I spend all of my free time in the sewing room.
I love QWU and the chance to get to know all my cyber friends and see their work. Each and everyone of them inspires me.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, crazy quilting, general sewing, knitting
My pets are awesome!
4 Dogs, Jules, Abby, Uggy, and Coco

Saga of the machine shed

Well, the DH started to take it down on Saturday, but he overworked himself and had to stop. It was humid as all get out here this weekend. The DS arrived safely from Kansas on Friday and spent Saturday with his friends. So today at 9 AM all 3 of us went out to work on taking this behemoth down. This thing is a series of 5 or 6 panels across and there are at least a gazillion bolts in each panel. It was 30 feet wide and 50 feet long and about 20 feet high in the center. We got about 20 feet of it down as of today. I only worked out there for 3 hours but I felt like I spent 3 months out there. Some of the spaces between the panels are only about 4 inches wide and they used to be about 2 feet. This thing crinkled like an accordion! Maybe by the end of this week we can have it all down. We just have to wait and see. I did get a little sewing done. Made the Lucky charms runner from Fast and Furious. I was also in a machine embroidery class with Eileen Roche and Marie Zinno on Friday and Saturday. What fun! I learned some new techniques and of course I spent some money on things that will make placing designs on garments a lot easier. It was good to get together with folks who like doing the same things. All in all I learned a lot and now I look forward to applying what I learned!

Sandy Hook and Snowflakes

Posted on December 18, 2012 at 5:55pm 1 Comment

http://www.pta.org/parents/content.cfm?ItemNumber=3459  This is a link to the PTA page.  There is a story there about the Sandy Hook School wanting snowflakes made for when the children return to school after the new year.  Please take a look at it and if you can get a snowflake or 2 made, there is an address that you can send it too.  If you have an embroidery machine, Embroidery Library has a free snowflake design that…


Dress Shopping

But not for any old dress- a wedding dress for my DD.  I was prepared to spend days and weeks looking for this dress.  It took less than 2 hours to find the dress, try it on , love it, get the hemline pinned up and the sides taken in a little and the train pulled up and pinned and $550.00.  Not too bad.  You could see it was "THE DRESS" the minute she stepped out of the dressing room.  Even the ladies next to us commented on it.  The wedding is not until October, but at least we have a dress. … Continue

Ice Day

Posted on February 4, 2011 at 3:13am 5 Comments

Well, I got up, had my coffee and got ready for work.  I get up at 330 AM to be to work by 5AM.  Decided to go out and see the "snow" on the ground.  Well, under it is a sheet of ice.  None of the weatherpeople saw it coming, but before we got our dusting of snow we got some sleet and all the roads in the area are covered with ice and a little snow on top.  Soooooo- I will not be going to work today.  I will spend my free day in my sewing room working on my projects.  San Antonio is closed… Continue

More specifically, Longhorns. We have about 60 of them ranging from month old calves to a ton plus bull. His name is JW and he is the ringleader. Yesterday the DH said to let them out to eat the front field. Being a somewhat dutiful DW, I did. Not 30 minutes later a neighbor called to ask if there was a hole in our fence becasue the "kids" were over on her road! The broke thru the hot wire, walked down our drive and went into the pasture next door. Well, thigh high hay wasn't good enough for… Continue

Lynne, what type of knee surgery did you have.  I have had one knee replaced and the other one needs it.  I hate to go through it again.  Looks like you had a quick surgery?Cora

Lynne, good luck with the teaching possibility. Would you like for me to ask around here how the quilt shops pay? I know one keeps $20 of the fee for each paying student. The teacher gets the rest of the fee. I think she is the most generous in what she pays teachers I believe the others do a split. Many of the shops also offer discounts to teachers if they are making a sample for their class. I have only taught in my home so I haven't paid a whole lot of attention to how all the stores do it. I have a friend that teaches embroidery at a local shop. She picks a particular project that all the students will make. In her next class they are doing "ooh, La, La" by Lunch Box quilts. She requires certain supplies. I don't know if the shop gives her a cut from the supplies or not. I will ask her for more information. Good luck if you decide to take the plunge.

Just saw your feathers from AG. How do you get so much done? One day, I hope to have half the time you do to devote to my hobbies.

Lynne, I wondered where Marion was. My family and I spend a few days most summers in Bastrop, at Lost Pines, we were probably not too far from you.

I live in Houston. If you happen to come down this way for the IQF let me know. I'd love to meet you and talk all things ME.

I've admired some of your posted photos. One day, I will try to look through them all.

Once I become more familiar with uploading photos, I will add some of my work. I don't have nearly as much ME as you but I do have lots of quilts.

What type of machine do you use for ME?
I know you are big on AG designs. I've never tried any of their work. I do like Lunch Box designs, Amazing Designs, Loralie, and OESD. I have a few other brands that I have tried that I like but can't remember their name. I don't get as much time to ME as I'd like.

Thanks for telling me how you made the quilt. I need to play more on my embroidery machine. It does take a lot of work setting it up and getting it just right.

Hi Lynne.  Thanks for your support.  We're trying to give the place of business the benefit of the doubt, but it sure looked suspect.  We've talked to DH's mom to caution her about this type of thing.  Hopefully she'll be more aware in the future.  

DH's favorite cow in our herd is a Longhorn cross.  He likes everything about her (udder, mothering instinct, size) except that speckled hide.  (I like it because I can always pick her out from the rest.)  We run mostly Angus/Hereford cattle, but the neighbors had a Longhorn bull, and she is the result of that.

Thanks Lynne! The surgery is on Wednesday and then I will have 4 weeks of posting time as my laptop is right beside my chair.

When I first saw it I thought it was a PSA about domestic violence.  Doesn't Leslie Gore look great?

Hi Lynne...Thanks for accepting my friend request.  I'm glad that fall is here.  It was really hot here this summer with the muggies.  Fall is my favorite season especially since the temperature starts cooling down.   Will talk soon, take care.   Rachel

Hi Lynne!  Thanks for accepting my request.  Absolutely we'll have sleepovers - quilting and going through our stashes sleepovers.  Now wouldn't that be fun to do?  If only we lived closer to one another....   Have a great evening and a wonderful day tomorrow! Hugs!
