If you have a JoAnn's near you. They have coupons for 40 or 50 % off in there flyers that you sign up for. I got mine from them and I love it. You keep the box that it came in for storing it when not in use. Good luck. I think I have had mine for at least 10 yrs.
I forgot to tell you about Block Swappers Inc. Check out this group if you like to do block swaps. BS #2 begins August 1st and the rules are posted in the discussion forum of that group. Also, we have just begun a Christmas Swap and the rules for that are also posted.
Hi Annie,We are glad to have you in Round Robin's Nest. We are almost finished with RR #2. It will end in September. We will begin another "Traditional" Round Robin about the 1st of October. ArtQuilter is just beginning an Ostrich Challenge which is a mystery quilt done in sections, but each participant does all of the sections themselves and the quilt does not leave home. You can join in on it now or wait for the traditional one in October.

Hi Annie! Hope things are going well for you and your daughter. I just wanted to make sure that the magazines got to you. It was a gift from you to me taking them in rather than me tossing them out. Rebecca
Hi Annie! I am so sorry for the loss of your Husband. It was sweet of you to let your DD have a friend over for a sleepover....but I am sure it wore on your already frazzled nerves. I sure wish you were near me so I could come and hang out with you....even if we just sit and say nothing, at least you wouldn't feel so alone for a while. Just be patient and take good care of yourself now in your time of grief. If you ever want to chat, just let me know! XOXOX Maryam
Annie,I am so sorry for your loss.I want to tell you it gets better and maybe thats partly true because some times it does and other times it seems like it was only yesterday.Its been 11 years for me and raising 2 sons without their father has not been easy.I'm here if you need to talk.
First Annie, thanks for the recipe for the maple oatmeal cookies. They were delicious and the quilting girls loved them. The doll outfits are gorgeous. The little cowgirl is sweet and the celtic dress is really cute. I saw the hallowe'en outfit too and it is beautiful. You did a wonderful job.
Hi Annie, I think you meant to say that the balls were 3 inches in size. Are they done like EPP are did you sew them by machine? They are really cute.
The picture 26 on my page is a family of ceramic deer that I painted a few years back. I taught classes for a few years and really had a great time. I don't do the ceramics any more due to the "arthritis" in my hands. I loved doing animals and attempting to get them as realistic as possible.
Well, I hope you are having a great day.I am going to the grocery store this weekend and get some maple flavoring to make my cookies. The bottle I had was too old to mess up my cookies with.
Thanks for sharing and have a good day..............
