Elaine, great to hear from you. I haven't done much on mine either. Still have them all on the go - at least one is sandwiched and almost finished quilting and I will soon be ready to bind it. Like you I only work on it from time to time. I have been knitting for the Hospital Gift Shop. I am the only one making baby stuff and I cannot keep up with it. I get one thing done and poof it is sold. Oh well, I guess all these things keep us out of trouble eh? Glad you are ok and just busy. Busy I can handle. Have a great summer. Glad you got hi-speed. I am sure you will love it.
Elaine, where have you gotten to. Haven't heard from you for ages. My EPP inspiration has gone and left me = need you to come back. What have you been up to and are you still quilting. Sure do miss you, Girl! At least drop in once in a while and say hi. Just thinking the other day, if any of us died or got really sick, the rest would never know what happened as our DH's would never let the forum know I am sure.
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
Yeah, probably not too many Froggie quilter's in OK! I just keep submitting an answer, some of the answers are pretty boring, the name of the question IS quirky! So, I think they want a quirky answer. It's fun, either way.
Yes, that is me! I got the e mail message, and had to read it three times to realize I had actually won something. I got a book to download, so I chose a Log Cabin book. It has different layouts and fabrics to use, some don't even look like a Log Cabin. I was very excited to win. I will have to watch for your quirky answers.
lol Hoppy quilting! 1st snow of the season here yesterday and today. I'll be staying and maybe I'll get some quilting done. Can't promise. DIrty house and 'real' work to do also. I work from home sometimes via internet. Nice for snow days.
That is hilarious. We can be froggie together. I've been working on some froggie stitches on a quilt, I started quilting it then decided I hated it. So I started carefully working. Good think I bought a new seam ripper a few months ago. I am afraid it's almost worn out now, though. Good thing they are pretty cheap. I can imagine a bunch of blow up froggies in your pond. How funny. What a great neighbor.
Hi Elaine! I love your pics, especially of your granddaughter. She is a cutie. Well, the story of how I became a Froggie...
Well, Linda is pretty boring and common, and I was trying to think of a name to be different. A friend in a CT group and I kind of had a running joke about frogs, and I have whimsical frogs outside. And I spend time doing frog stitches (rippit, rippit), so I decided I liked it. What do you think?
I have a Dell laptop - I've had it for 3 or 4 years. I've carried to Mexico and back 2 or 3 times. I backup 2 sometimes 3 times each week, but I've only had to "restore from backup" once. Problems always seem to come down to "operater error". DH has been trying to "convert" me to a MAC. My accounting software works best on a PC although they have adapted it to MAC. I have no clue what the difference is between the two.
Hi Elaine, I was just going thru the groups and came accross this one,just recently I have heard of postcards but really do not know how to make one . Do you know of where I could find out about how to do this. I have a daughter who has a boyfriend serving in Afghanstan, was deployed in Aug. sent a box last week. If I can figure out how to do the postcards that would be nice, Hope to hear from you Paula
Check out Karens' blog titled "I've been busy" One of the pictures she has there is of her holding a baby. (Belongs to a co-worker, I think) Anyway - it's a boy and he's wearing a hat that's like one of the blocks in the boy version of Funny Babies. Makes me want to make a single block wallhanging for one - or maybe both of some friends who are expecting boys in a month or so.
If you ever get the chance, read her book. She's very funny. I bet she would be a great stand-up commedienne. Within her explanation of her technique, she often inserts a phrase or story that will make you laugh - keeps you reading further. That could be the reason I went through her book as well as I did without getting bored like I often do when reading a book.
I went to the fabric store today and another customer was able to show me how to do a french knot. I'll probably use those for the babies' eyes.
