Christi, hi!!..you asked about my last name Holm..my husband's family are from Holm,Norway! We have done some of the Genealogy..and discovered that our real name is Erickson...when the family came to Ellis Island, 1865....they wanted a new name for their new country..they chose Holm..to remind them where they came from..then moved on the Minnesota..and were pioneers traveling West..to Seattle..a place that reminded then of
Thanks for stopping by my "dad's toolbox" blog. It's been frustrating, finding out that dad didn't want any of us kids to receive any of his tools. So many fond memories are tied into those tools. Even a hammer would bring back happy thoughts that are tied to my dad.
Christi - about the furring strips on my long ironing board, they are just screwed on. The screws are just long enough to secure the strips to the board, but not long enough to poke through to the top side of the board. I don't think he used glue at all.
Christi--thanks for the info on Amaze--I've never seen it, but having heard it mentioned several times here, I'm going to have to hunt it down and try it. i wound uup getting this particular stain out by rubbing it with a vinegar soaked cloth and then with water---I was so thankful!. Thanks again!
welcome chrisie i have'nt been on sight lately 2010 was a dificult year for me as most of the blogers know ! but i do glance at the stuf here and there. right now i have been triing o find a frog pattern to make my little granddaughter a quilt haven't found one yet.any ideas?
thank, Christi--that's a good idea. I quickly found that the design wall won't work just hung on hooks in my fabric closet. I did find that i have enough room to put it up behind on of the doors (did I mention i have limited wall space in my sewing room?), so I may just hang it there. I'm so bogged down in finishing up some projects right now that I don't when I will need it to start something new anyway. Happy New Year to you, and happy quilting!
Christi - Thanks for the reassurance. It helps to know that someone familiar with these types of situations who has no invested interest in her teeth can vouch for what was done. Hope the New Year is off to a good start for you!
You were right about the mouse traveling in pairs. Our house is almost 70 years old and has a cold air return in the living room. I knew that's where this critter came in. Last night after getting him, I insisted my husband put a trap down there because I kept thinking about what you said and this morning another one was caught. He says it looks like the female because was a lot smaller than the one yesterday. Needless to say, the it's completely sealed up until my husband buys some screen to put underneath of the grate so nothing can get up here. Thanks for the info. It helped. Now I hope we don't have a whole family down there.
Measure the top of the bag where you want the metal tape to go. Cut the metal tape a little over 1/4th inche from the sides. Slip the metal tape in the casing with the numbers towards the inside. I also round the corners of the tape and put black electrical tape on the ends. Just a little to cover the sharp ends. Sew up the sides of bag, turn inside out and voila.
Christi I could not believe it when you said you were going to a wedding near Bancroft Ont. That is where my husband's parents live!!! He actually grew up in Coe Hill which is 45min. south and west of Bancroft. But that is where he went to High School. His brother and wife live in L'Amable. What a small world we live in.
When you get back and have time we'll for sure meet.
