barn quilt questions by Mary
First, if you haven't yet seen the wonderful photos of giant quilt blocks painted on rural barns, tap "barn quilt photo" in your search engine and enjoy! I don't have a barn and I live in town, but I do have a garage, and want to replace the badly weathered "welcome" sign, which is a separate...

NZ earthquake info by DiMa[_4_]
Hi all, I just received this amazing information from a dear friend in NZ and thought you might like to have a look at what they are going through. http://www.christchurchquakemap.co.nz/ The aftershocks are still going. We get a lull for a few hours and then another cluster of them, mostly...

Welcome Home! (not o.t.) by Sunny[_2_]
A brand new Jem Gold came to live in my house today. I need something small and non-computerized to take to classes (and on trips that last longer than a week and we may have some coming up next year). I took my Pfaff to a class and ended up having to take her to the sewing machine doctor. So...

the more the merrier by Louise in Iowa[_2_]
You're an enabler! The last thing I need is one more way to spend time at the computer (I'm on it too much as it is!), but it looks like this might have some real possibilities. Darn you! -- Louise in Iowa [email protected] dot com http://community.webshots.com/user/louiseiniowa On 9/11/2010...

Photogenic memory by Polly Esther[_5_]
Yes. I know. The expression is photographic memory - but I have learned how to use the camera for memory. One of the Christmas tree skirts began with a printed panel. Of course, none of the blocks were straight or square. Step 1 was to cut them apart and attempt to square them. Step...

I Decided to Pack It In. by John
Well. If I am going to pack it in, I will need a bag to pack it into. Right? Here you are presented with a Weekender Man Bag that is done up in the Log Cabin Pattern. See where this whole "Man Bag" thing is going. What could be more "manly" than the Log Cabin Pattern? Right? Rough hewn work by the...

OT Slow cooker (crock pot) recipes by Lizzy Taylor
I have a slow cooker / crock pot and should and would like to use it more. My problem is that the gravy is always very thin when I do meaty casseroles and such and then I have to mess about thickening it which seems to negate the idea of an easy one pot meal. Do any of you have a favourite...

Another project done by IMS[_6_]
There is a very dedicated nurse/administrator who has done a LOT (more than I could ever imagine in fact) to help me deal with the BC surgery and treatment side effects. I made a table runner for her, which I just finished yesterday. ...

Cinnamon (NOT OT) by Sartorresartus
I was reading somewhere over the past week or two about using ground cinnamon spice for quilt marking. Over the past couple of weeks I have been marking out a new wholecloth. It's been a pain. However, I learned some stuff. I usually use either a Roxanne marker (Quilter's choice) or a...

Back to School by Lizzy Taylor
After 7 long weeks the boys are both back in school as of this morning. Now I can work longer and more productive hours at work which I hope will translate to better down-time at home including more quilting and catching up on stuff. I feel almost sane! Lizzy

OT OT how to destroy by Polly Esther[_5_]
I need to destroy a computer. It's not that I'm angry or anything. I just need it destroyed to ashes. There's nothing on it that would be particularly useful to the law enforcement drones - just stuff that's personal and I don't want to share. Do I take a screwdriver and axe,...

How To Become a Basket Case! by John
This is the last of these things I am going to do. They are just too hard to sew. When you have to sew together 4 layers of canvas, two layers of batting and Pellon stiffener, it is more than a simple mechanical sewing machine can handle. I had to hand sew the bottom to the side by rotating the...
