Hi! I'm not sure which fabric you were looking for - you posted on my Mini Bikini quilt. I'm pretty sure the flip flop one is a Timeless Treasures, the "sand" fabric is from Joanns, and I don't remember where the others are from.
Marlene, I am sorry about your dad having breast cancer. I had a dear friend (male) I used to work with that had it. It was diagnosed late and he did not make it. I miss him. Thanks for your comments on the quilts.
Hi Marlene, thanks for your nice comment on my geisha quilt. I took the photo before I was really finished with it...it's now embellished with silk flowers and beads. Looks like you have quite a stash...nice collection of fabrics. Happy quilting and crafting. Estie
Thanks Marlene, I do have the Pfaff but am intimidated by it - how embarrassing. Got it gently used on Craig's list. Having those two rooms empty, I shook off the guilt (tho it does come back to haunt me, Mom stuff, you know?) and took over. I love being in there. I plan to cover the couch with fabric I already have, but who knows when?
You are blessed with family and a wonderful husband. I feel like I'm still learning but like you, we have time try everything. Let's just keep trying new techniques and keep in touch. Bernie aka "Goofy" is my latest rescue. He came to us 3 months ago and is still learning the ropes. As you may know he was found wandering in a Kansas snowstorm and has been shipped around too many times in his young life. I think he finally realized we are his forever home. Keep stitching!!!!! your friend, judy
Oh, Marlene! I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have been away and haven't had a chance to check online for the past several days. Of course I will say a prayer for the wee little one. Let them know that they are not given anything they can't handle and what they are given will make them stronger. Obviously the little one was needed somewhere else more special than with your family. My heart goes out to them and to you, too!
I am so sorry about the miscarriage. It is so painful no matter where you are coming from. I will definately pray for them. My nephew and his wife for many years after the loss of their first to still born, had birthday parties and invited friends. They would take all the new wrapped gifts to children's hosp. They don't don that any more but if was a way for them to express their pain.
Marlene, do you surge your flannel and then wash it, or do you wash it and iron and then surge? I love flannel and want my stuff to turn out sturdy a long lasting. It embarasses me to think what my earlier projects turned out like.
Marlene, I was glad I had lost mine early in pregnancy too. Mom's first was born after full 9 month term and she lost him without even seeing him. I just don't understand why they would do that but anyway I guess back then, strange things were done. I think it would be totally devastating to carry 9 mos. and so looking forward to this little one and then you don't have him/her. Anyway I guess God has his reasons and even though we don't understand we have to realize He knows more than us. May God draw near and comfort and bless at this time. Praying for you all. Nana as well. Hugs to you Marlene.
I am sorry that PT didn't go so well. I think the knee thing is a wonderful idea. I understand that you just need to SEW. Do you do a lot of baby stuff with flannel? I love baby flannel but am so worried that it is going to go hay wire when it gets washed and won't look good any more. What do you do?
Hi Marlene. I loved seeing your stash. So neat and compact. What are the little tabs on each bundle? Is it the yardage for that particular fabric? I am in the process of organizing my fab stash. Good luck in your therapy. Is there any hand work you can do? Do you like to read. How frustrating to not be able to sew. UGH.
Sock monkeys are not at all hard to make. There is a little machine work but most of it is hand sewing. If you google "Red Heeled Socks" you will find the socks...and the directions come with them.
