I have been catching up this morning on blog posts and Barbara Graham posted one where she had gotten a burn. I passed this information along to her but thought I would pass it on to you as well.
I read recently that honey was excellent for burns. The article said not to put butter on them, which I learned a long time ago but said honey was really good. I burned my finger with the curling iron a few wks ago and went immediately to the cabinet and grabbed the honey and put…Continue
I enjoy watching 60 Minutes especially Andy Rooney...these are his thoughts:
What makes women over 50 so smart, sexy, and fun!
A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, ‘What are you thinking?’ She doesn’t care what you think.
If a woman over 50 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it’s usually more interesting.
Women over 50 are dignified. They…
Sunday after church, a mom asked her very young daughter what the lesson was about.
The daughter answered, "Don't be scared, you'll get your quilt."
Needless to say, the Mom was perplexed. Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the Mom asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was about.
(wait for it)
"Be not afraid, thy comforter is coming."
What do you do if your Electric Quilting software has a bug?
Wait for a patch!
What if you need tech support?
You go to a forum and start a new thread!

I have posted directions with pics on my blog of how to make yo's yo's without a yo yo maker, for newer quilters who think they need to buy a tool to make yo yo's. I have also included a pic of a yo yo Christmas tree made by quilter, Karin Hellaby of the UK, with a link for free directions to make the tree. Karin also organizes and runs quilting holidays and some of her trips look Wonderful, so have added that link. …Continue
Howdy Gifties, here is proof that I actually use the stuff I design. This is my bedside table complete with dust, and my phone charger valet. I keep my glasses in there at night, and my phone on charge. I find it stops the cat from pushing my glasses off the table onto the dog in the middle of the night. Trust me that's a great saving. Dog and cat politics in the middle of the night is no fun!
This time I actually followed the pattern, and it worked! You can find the Phone…Continue
Well, since my name begins with S, I dont' show up in the b-day list anymore. But I wanted to let everyone know that a glorious day was spent looking at material. First at Buggy Barn and then later at Quilt Patch Lane. At Buggy barn, we were greeted by a new (to me) yellow lab named Riley, and her best friend, a chestnut gelding named Gus. Both were friendly and wanted to be petted, and there were lots of new things to look at inside. Found exactly what I was looking for.…Continue

My knitting machine sold over the weekend which still makes me sad. Husband did not love to hear me get upset when all the work came off the knitting bed from one stuck needle. He want it out of the house! My high hopes of designing clothes, dolls and ect. was one of those short lived dreams, especially since I have gone crazy for quilting If anyone still loves this art of knitting, machine and hand. I do have over 20 books on the subject, that will also now be sold on ebay. Need…Continue
I just am not getting to my quilting - seems like whenever I plan to take the day sewing - something comes up. Was going to sew yesterday - Sunday - but my daughter called and they were taking her Father out for his birthday - #75 - so I meet them. Baked him some peanut butter cookies - that was always his favorite and he seemed to appreciate them.
Friday is my Sister's birthday - gotta get her present together and in the mail tomorrow. And want to put together an eyeglass chain for…Continue

There is a group quilt project that I am showing on my blogsite. The group has taken a pattern, cut it up, individually sewn the parts, and added them all back together, for the final quilt. I believe 11 quilters were involved, but the number could be adjusted. The end result - a quilt of one of the quilter's daughter's house - is so cute. It was done in a class by my quilt teacher, Sue Handley, a few years ago. I think it has won some ribbons in a couple shows. …Continue
New DDIL, Alexa, and I got to visit Crafts Americana's office in Vancouver. Crafts Americana is home to Knit Picks and Connecting Threads and host to the Knitting Community and Quilt With Us. In the photo above are (from left) Jenny, Kerin, Alisha, me, Alexa and Alison.
