Hi Polkadot, I was reading through some of the posts and came across yours about spammers. I'm new at this posting stuff and I'm not quite sure what you mean. Can you explain? Also, after 7 years of quilting, I too, am only working on smaller projects now. I'm concentrating on table runner, toppers, and placemats. I'm not real good with free motion quilting, so I need to take some classes on it. I'd hate to ruin a great looking pieced project.
Thanks, Polk. She's the oldest of our 3 grandkids and the only girl. She's also bilingual (Chinese and English). It's fascinating to see her switch back and forth between languages. Mommy speaks only Chinese to her; daddy speaks only English, as per my wishes (I'm a retired language teacher).
I love Harold and the purple crayon. Did you do that on your own or was it a kit? I have always had a soft spot for "Harold". It was also my little brother's name, he passed away in 2003 after double lung surgery.
If it's a kit I would love to know where you found it... Thanks. Carol
hi polkadot! i love your site. i could complain about the post office but its always paid the bills and there are a lot of worse jobs out there. i took a serger class last night and it was great. i am determined to learn how to use that thing. we made pillowcases and they came out great! she's going to have a class once a month and do a simple project each time to get us used to what the machine can do. fun! well, i have to punch in on the clock. 21 days to go and i'm done with this job! nancy
Hi There PolkaDot!
I just noticed the question about my portrait quilts (sorry- I wasn't ignoring you!) It usually takes me about two months to do a portrait, if I stay with it. Sometimes I have to walk away from it, and come back to view it later. I get frustrated as I am not confident in color choices yet. The portraits are assembled like a 'puzzle' format- one piece at a time, with a line drawing as a starting point.
Thanks for asking!
Thanks for your positive comment. I'm glad you liked it. This was from a class I took last summer. It is called "Saturn" by the designer. Carla ???? I can't remember her last name, and can't get to my torn up sewing room to check. It was really easy to do once she showed us her sewing circles trick.
