Wow! You deserve to fall asleep on the couch. I am sorry for your families loss, but it sounds like it was for the best. It is hard to see a family member suffer. My prayers are with you and your family.

Hey How's that hand quilting going? I bet your busy out riding these days with the weather getting nicer.

I've been to Ocean City and Assateague Island. Anywhere down that way?

Hi Shannon, where is Clayton? My sister lives in Milton near Rehoboth and teaches in Georgetown. She is also a quilter.

Hi Shannon...we did our kitchen counters here in Cold Lake in '99...part way through I went to BC to spend a week with my friend and her family and when I got home DH and I had both compromised enough to get the job finished!! Anyway, you'll get to your project soon and at least you know you have something relaxing and wonderful to look forward to.

Hi Shannon...so have you started hand quilting yet? How is it going? Very curious because you're going to so enjoy it once you get started so nudge, nudge!! Happy quilty day, Susan

Hi Shannon, Eventually your stitches will be the same size on both sides and that is always what you want to aim for, but to start, just try to get them as even as possible on the front. As time goes by you will find it all starting to come automatically...and if your fingertip gets sore, try a small strip of electrician's tape...it should help (my fingertips right now look and feel like sandpaper because I took some time off so the calluses went away!!). If you can find a thimble you like then use it but mostly HAVE FUN !!!

Happy Valentine's Day Shannon! Hope you spend the day having a great time doing whatever makes your heart sing. If you want to practice your stitching just take a mini quilt sandwich (I have a 3 inch wide by 8 inch long one and if I haven't hand quilted for a while I haul it out and practice still) and try to do nothing else but make a line of stitches that are consistently the same length. The stitch size will get smaller and smaller the longer you hand quilt but if your stitch length is the same the quilting looks great.
