Being a bit early for work this morning I was checking email on my ipad when I came across a "Going Out of Business!" email from Hancock Fabrics. I moaned "Oh no" and my male coworker asked what was wrong. I explained that a fabric store was closing and he (trying very hard to work up some sympathy for me) shook his head slowly and said "Oh, and that's not something you stock up on! Is it?"
Having earned a place on the MIA list here on QWU, I would like to lay to rest the rumor that I am dead, having suffocated under a pile of fabric in my sewing room! (Okay, I came close but managed to crawl out from under my stash just in time.) Work takes more of my time than it used to, which allows me a little extra ca$h to play with, but less time to play.
I am trying to actually quilt some of the tops that I've made. I came across a very good deal (almost makes me feel…Continue
I've been trying to get "back into" quilting after a brief start and a long absence. I have a Pfaff Grand Quilter (midarm) machine on a Grace frame. To use with it I have a (red box) Quilter's Cruise Control. Even tho I haven't used it a friend has, so I know that everything is (was?) in working order. Problem is the O rings for the CC rotted off. I have new ones but cannot for the life of me figure out where or how they go on!!! The contact person - email -…Continue
I've been soooo out of touch, haven't even been on the computer too much. I get on and read when I can, but rarely take the time to comment. Thirty lashes for me!

I do have an embroidery machine now, and enjoy that very much when I get the chance. I never thought I would have an embroidery machine. I always…Continue
Hope everyone's Easter was good. I enjoyed it very much with family and friends, and the weather was perfect! I'm on school/work break this week, trying to "catch up" (I know, hysterical, aren't I?) on some sewing. I'm especially trying to use up fabric that I already have. Made a pair of PJs for Piper that she won't wear because they're "too loose, Gramma!". I like loose PJs, Piper likes hers tight! Who knew? I'll see if the little girl down the street likes them.…Continue
