Nice to hear from you. The gals were great in Cicero. They had a huge class going when I was there. Don't think they had enough people in Fayetteville. Interested in classes. I did a dumb thing with my machine. Luckily, it didn't harm anything except the needle threader. I can't see so need that !!!! It needed serviced. Hope your summer is going well. Seems like the days are going so fast.
Terry even though this is a quilting forum I would love to see the garments you make for your grandchildren. Or anything else you happen to make. I have only made two bed (queen size) quilts since I took my first quilting class in 2000. And would you believe I don't own a quilt? The two I made were given as gifts. I still have much to learn in quilting. I'm working on a baby quilt that I will be posting in a few days. I like the smaller projects like baby quilts, table runners etc.
Good morning-Wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. Is your son still in the service? Hope he is States side and safe. How are you feeling? I have just started feeling like I should...still have a slight cough. That was a nasty bout! Enjoy Piper and all the antics they throw at us!!!
Terry: Thank you for your nice comments. I just finished my two baby/mom nursery quilts and I'm happy with how they turned out. My top is cotton, batting is one layer of flannel and the back is minkie. I cut my binding at 2-1/4" folded it in half and pressed. I then surged the edge of the quilt sandwich. (it was already quilted) I decided that would help with the minkie poop. (It's really really messy) Then I sewed my binding to the back, wrapped it to the front and used my edgestitch/walking foot to machine sew the binding on the front side with a straight stitch close to the edge. I did use some Roxanne's basting clue to help hold the mitered corners and I also used those little red binding clips. Overall it was easier than I thought...will post photo tomorrow. I'm to poop to do it now. Hope that helped a little...let me know if you have any other questions.
Morning Terry, Yeah it seems lately if it wasn't for bad new, I wouldn't have any at all. lol But prayers are being answered. There is another chiropracter within five miles but I went to him once and he did more harm then good. And others have said the same thing so I thought I would try this one who came highly recommended. I have one more treatment and I might not keep that one if I'm taking my sister for radiation. I am feel better.
Terry, I can relate to the animals taking over the bed. My dog gets really indignant if I even move. She lets out a big sigh and goes to the foot of the bed. Sometimes I get the feeling she is the owner and I'm the pet. lol
I was reading your profile info...Aren't grandkids the greatest thing. I have such a great time with mine. I have a file on my computer that I keep "fun things" to do. I call it "Nana's Bag of Tricks". I usually plan a couple of weeks ahead and prepare for them before they come to spend a weekend with me. There are 5 in all, it wears me out, but sooooooooo worth it!!!
