As the Art Director for our catalog photo shoots, it’s my job to research and book locations. We have a very tight budget which makes for a lot of creativity and craftiness. I choose locations based on the overall feel and style of a home and try my best to have it connect with the collections I will be photographing. I've done shoots at coworkers homes, Bed & Breakfasts, through Airbnb, friends of friends homes. But there can never be enough options, that is why I’m reaching out to…Continue
I am returning to quilting finally. We did some renovations to our house; did some extensive travelling to buy a fifth wheel and then travelled with the fifth wheel to many destinations (Alaska; Arizona). So, I had no time for quilting. And, because I had no time for quilting, I forgot how to use my 820 Bernina. Last week I went on a quilting retreat and we got reacquainted and I am on the road to happy-quilting days. I hope to be able to ask all you experienced ladies some questions in…Continue
A lot has happened since I've last posted, but I have kept up reading QWS blogs. My DH and I have moved to Florida this May. We figured it was the right time for us. My DH has trouble with walking in ice and snow.
We haven't moved into our house yet because the closing date isn't until July, but we had to get out of our house and we moved in with DHs sister. Now we are looking for jobs here. I've got an interview on Wednesday and…Continue

Hello my friends. It's been awhile since I posted. But I have been in to snoop around and check out what your all doing on your machines. I have been taking my sister to Bangor at least twice a month for several months. Cancer is back. This time in her lungs. She had an MRI last Wed. to see if there is any more in her body. I haven't heard anything from that test yet. She will be starting chemo and radiation as soon as they have completed all the tests to see what they are going to…Continue
Much as we all love the internet and being able to interact with people all across the globe, it sure is frustrating when it acts up! My internet has been down as much if not more than it has been up since Sunday morning. Someone from AT&T finally showed up yesterday after we waited for 3+ days only to be told that it wasn't their problem and must be our modem. We are switching carriers on Monday because of the poor service we have received from AT&T so I didn't want to buy a…Continue
I am pretty new at this. Is the laminate 3 layers? fabric sandwiched between 2 layers of laminate? or is it fabric on one side and the water repellant layer on the other?
