    Re: Great service!

    It's so frustrating, isn't it? The only reason I even checked outside the door was that I looked online to see if it was out for delivery and it showed that it had already been delivered. I'm still...

    Re: machine embroidery on quilt

    I use quilt block embroideries on my sandwiched quilts all the time. As was mentioned above, I also get mine from Embroidery Library. It's one of my favourite ways to quilt my quilts.

    You don't...

  18. Re: My little furbaby, Maggie, lost her battle with cancer today.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, I know just how you're feeling. We had to do the same thing on Monday afternoon. I can't remember the last time I've felt this sad.

  20. Re: How many of you have dreamed of wanting a Kitchen Aid Mixer?

    I've had my Kitchen Aid mixer for many years now. Sometimes I use it a lot and sometimes it sits for a long time before I use it again.
