Hi Sharon!..my dear friend who owns the wonderful Viking sewing machines, like me!..haven't heard from you , so I am checking in!..how have you been?..working on any embroidery on your gorgeous machine!? Now you have me thinking about buying one!..I love my border embroidery on my Opal, but now I want to go bigger! What do you suggest?..Hugs! Kathy
P.s. I too am a member of Hearts and Faces..in fact, the lady that is on the cover picture with Linda is my neighbor..Anita..that Linda knows well..I was brought into the group because of Anita...small world!
Thanks Sharon!..I have thought about you all day..but I didn't want to bother you..so I am glad you wrote..I hope you had a good day..I had a long morning at the dentist waiting for my John to get done..then I came home and sleep for 3 hours..that was a real surprise!..you see, I am recovering from a bad fall I took last month..I fell off the livingroom stair steps and broke my pelvis in 4 places and my left arm and wrist..so I have had to be in bed 24/7.. But since I am the only driver for my husband, I have to drive him to where he must go..broken body and all..things are healing..it is just taking time..I go next week to see when I can get the cast off..and when I can get out of this wheel chair....well, enough about me, how are you doing?
Sharon, no it didn't. Her water broke about an hour after we got off the phone and the 1st one was born at 5:25 Nash time, the girl. Then at 6:15 the 1st boy came and at 7:12 she had the last one. She has only left them once when she got up to peepee on her potty pad. What an awesome experience. I have her right beside my bed so I can be right there if she needs me tonight. I just hope she lets Skeeter sleep in my bed without it making her nervous. We will take the puppies to the vet probably around 2 tomorrow to get their tails bobbed and their dew claws removed, but other than that I should be home all day!!!! Call me!!! HUGS, and LOVE Linda
Thanks for adding me as a friend Sharon. So sorry for the loss of your mother, it gets easier with time, but we will always miss them. It must be difficult with a special needs child, glad you have an outlet in your quilting.
We just arrived in Orlando yesterday. Visited in Ft. Myers for a few days. We will be here for two months. It's so nice to be able to go outside without a coat! Sat out in the sun for an hour and felt so good. It would be fun to meet up...but will be in NY in June....I do miss the grandsons...will skype with them later. Did you get any of the storm today? Nasty...
If you add it to a blog post, it won't show on the slideshow.
If you make a comment on my wall and add a photo, it won't either.
If you add it to your profile page, you'll see some options about how it will appear - select My Friends Only, then only your friends will see it, but you'll have to point it out to us because we won't know it's there unless we go to your page.
OR, you can send me a private message through Messages, and attach it there and it won't appear in the slideshow.
Hi Sharon, I found the BOM you're working on - cute! Wow, that's gonna be a lot of work!
Well, I'm a huge fan of NOT starting over and can be very creative in making it fit. But many of my fellow quilters are perfectionists and would rip it out or start over. Are you talking about the upper right corner pieced block? You might have to do some clever camouflage and calculating on the pieced sashing that surrounds it, but personally, I would not start over.
But keep in mind, this looks like a big quilt with quite a lot of blocks and pieced sashing. To get it to fit altogether when you're done, measuring twice now on each block will keep you from gigantic headaches later. The last BOM I did, I modified a few blocks and the sashing and it caused me quite a big headache when I pieced it together. But it turned out just fine.
