About Me
I had just signed on to this web page and saw the letter from the lady who had fibramyalgia. I just discovered I have it also. And it does interfer with quilting, or even typing on the computer for any length of time. I have quilted since I was a a teenager as my mother also quilted. I quilt, read mysteries and try to stay in a positive mood.
Hobbies and Interests

Changing e-mail address????

Posted on January 6, 2011 at 7:16pm 1 Comment

After the week-end I will be changing my e-mail address. How do I get this information to Quilt With Us? Do I need to enroll as a new member? Would be lost without being able to read all the blogs and know what is going on with all my quilting buddies!

Why were the quilt shops closed on Sunday?

Posted on October 5, 2010 at 8:43pm 6 Comments

Just returned from a trip to Spokane, Washington to visit my stepson and his wife. Am sure I came back pounds heavier as his wife is a wonderful cook. We spent Saturday just looking around their home, a new garage he is building, her garden, etc. as it was a wonderful day to be outdoors.Then she and I left on Sunday to go to the quilt stores. First stop was their new BIG Joann's. Then we stopped at 2 more quilt stores--Closed on Sunday, she called 2 or 3 more and they were closed.

Any Farmall Tractor fabric out there??

Posted on February 24, 2010 at 12:02pm 2 Comments

I know there is lot's of John Deere fabric, but I have a friend back home who makes baby quilts for the church, and she is looking for fabric with Farmall Tractors as fathers who use John Deere's don't like to wrap their baby boys in John Deere quilts.City people probably don't understand this, but there is a rivalry between the two.Would appreciate knowing of any quilt store or manufacture who would have Farmall fabric.

Where's the top to the wedding cake?

Posted on January 6, 2010 at 12:39pm 9 Comments

We are planning on celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary on Valentine's Day. Yes, we were actually married on that day---I think my husband thought that would help him remember the date. So I found the photo album and guest book, but have no idea where the figures for the top of the wedding cake are. Maybe buried in fabric someplace. We've moved 4 times so maybe it's been lost and arrived at someone else's house.

There are boxes up in the garage that were never opened when we moved here… Continue

christmas wishes

May tomorrow be a joyful day that you are going to share with family and friends. I pray that those traveling in the Midwest reach their destination safely in spite of the snow storm. So a Merry Christmas to those who make this program available to us and to all who take the time to share their sorrows as well as their hopes and dreams.

Hi Valma. It has been ages since I've seen you post, so thought I would check up on you and see how you are doing. The fibro group has grown with several new persons added this year. Thank you for starting the group. It has been such a blessing to so many.

LOL - I think we can let you back in to Fibro Girls without a vote.  Too funny.

Oh darn should have said the room had "Voting Machines" in there, why we could not use our regular room.

Sorry no directions for that tie purse but at least you have photos to work with.
Our group mostly talked today did not get much quilting done and then we moved on to Cracker Barrel (13) of us and had lunch. Could not carry in pot luck today what with quilting machines in the room we use, this was easier too. I worked on the ties while watching the Gators beat the Bulldogs and the Jags beat the cowboys yesterday. My computer engineer grandson in CA took over my computer and worked on it for almost 5 hrs putting new things on and taking off problem areas. I must say I was able to get right on and so far no problems its as smooth as silk. Yeah Nothing like long distance free help huh?? Of course I always remind him of the "will.".. LOL

Fran's Tip of the Week
Tie scraps to fabric
When you have scraps of ties left over from a project (or projects), turn them into more fabric! Expose the sticky side of a piece of sticky water soluble stabilizer and cover it with tie scraps, making sure every space is covered. Lay a piece of tulle, organza or chiffon over the top and pin in place to secure. Stitch all over with meandering (or organized) stitching. Use either side up in another project. NOTE: If you have a longarm quilting machine, secure your stabilizer to the machine and build the fabric on your longarm!

Manage a stretchy seam
When you are sewing with a stretch fabric such as a knit or fabric with stretch fiber woven in, you may want to secure some of the seams so they do not stretch. Shoulder seams and waistlines in pants or skirts are especially vulnerable to stretching. Before you sew the seam, cut a piece of skinny woven ribbon or tape (straight grain, not bias) the length of the seam you want to sew. Use the pattern piece as a guide. Pin the ribbon over the seamline and sew through all layers.

Hi Valma just saw your message on here love it. Sorry I put you in a spot to cash check, I hate to get checks as I have to go to the credit union to deposit them. Reminds me need to go there by end of week.
Well took my 95 Villager van to get oil changed and re-attached the bar on my back drop down window which had come lose also check the awful noise no one had been able to find on my brakes. Good news and bad on that. They had to order part for window, 29.00 for little rubber gasget and etc that goes with it?? Wow should have taken out my duct tape, LOL so have to go back when it comes in. BUT the brakes of course did not show up until I took the guy for a short drive and then they heard it, a pump around the brakes if I don't get it repaired my brakes will go out??? Talking about $1,000 job?? I have paid for mech. breakdown insurance in my car insurance. worth? So now have to wait until he calls around for parts for this.. A trip to Office Depot found a lap top on sale, was going to wait until xmas and buy it for my self and I was at the point might just as well get it while I see it. I am so mad at this desk top, they also can check this one out very inexpensive so might do that next. Hope I can figure the lap top out, they have to get one from another store and paid extra for them to load things I needed on it and set it up, so have to go back for that next too. We need rain here badly gators are roaming, one ate a pet dog the other night. They walked their dog on the side of a small lake and thought it was a log in the water. Makes me sick to think of that...My girl friend who just lost her husband gave me her husbands ties. She quilts and said she had a lot of them but never tried to work with them as yet.So looking like mine. I think I will put up some of the quilted tie photos I took of a quilt friends who got me working with them. These are hers not mine remember.

I am glad the Pig Roast is over with for this year, wew we made $302.46 so far on the garage sale amd bake sale. What was left over in the sweets was going to be sold after church today. I missed church due to my back hurting and hitting the bathroom...pushed my self too long and too much yesterday but I will be ok. I am watching the JAGs play KC we have a 3rd quarterback as our other two are on the sick list with injuries.. Back to my ties, have been taking them apart, pulling threads, taking the guts out and washing them too, lots of work but the end pieces can be cut and used for praire points and the other part for something else. There is a lot of material to be used in ties. I bought the preacher's office chair for $20 and its so comfortable, he got a new one. Marge

What a nice surprise to find a actual letter in my mail box. I could hardly believe that was a tie quilt, I said no way. Had to sit right down and study it, wow will take it to my quilt group on Monday and show Judy. She is the one to get me going on the ties. I went to the Goodwill pound store this morning and got her a big hand full of colorful ties for $1.50 can you believe that? I think someone else must be doing something like this as the tie's have slowed down in the bins.
But I have about 100 or less to work with for my self right at the minute. Tomorrow is our church big Pig Roast, free food, jumping houses for the kids, snow cones, cotton candy, yum and then the bake sale and garage sale. Girl friend and I went yesterday and priced all things that had been brought in so far. So will be a full day for us tomorrow yawn, I will also miss my nap. Your keeping me in stitches keep sewing, Marge
