    Re: Tuesday hellos

    Good morning!
    It is nice to sleep in, although I'm still waking up "on time" for work, but I don't HAVE to get up. It seems to make a huge difference for some reason.

    JCY - if you do go with the...

    Re: Good Monday morning

    Just checking in. We are starting our mid-winter break.
    I get to be the mom-monster and make the girl catch up on her homework. Hopefully we can get that done mostly today and have the rest of the...

    Re: Welcome Monday

    Good morning!
    Up early to make the best use of the day off. I have several batches of banana bread to bake and possibly some cookies for lunches. I also have a recipe for dog biscuits for the bread...

    A Little More Night Owling

    It's the last night of Christmas Break.
    I could use another week to get stuff caught up. The tree did come down today and the goats snacked on it when the sun peeked out. The house has been...

    Re: What are your thoughts please

    That was my first thought too, until I noticed the center difference.

    Still a nice pattern either way.

    Re: Sunday Morning Greetings! :)

    We are wrapping up the end of Christmas break today. Making sure we have all the school clothes washed and ready for the week. The PE clothes that were washed 2 weeks ago are in the gym bag. The...

    Re: Is there an easier way?

    The tricky part about the "Scrappy Look" it it's generally made of those fiddly little bits of leftover fabric.

    I admire the people who have the fortitude to create those scrappy works of art. I...

    Re: Secret Santa 2020 January Theme

    It seems that every year we have new themes, so some may be new to all of us.

    This one may stump me for a bit (months even) until I find out that Deb is my swap partner. Then I find out that she...

    Re: Secret Santa 2020 January Theme

    The kids also play a "tag" game called Dragon Tails.
    We cut strips of t-shirts and the kids tuck one end in the waistband of their pants. The kids run past each other and try to snag "The Dragon's...

    Re: Not Too Late of a Night Owl

    Ooh Kim. That's no good.
    There is no sick like "Man Sick".
    I'm glad to hear that it blew through quickly and the Jello is there to help fix the queasy tummy.

    Friday was a late night for us. We...

    Re: Friday hellos!!

    Good day everybody!

    The girl came to clean the barn this morning. I went out and worked in the buck pens while she mucked the main barn. I've cleaned and re-baited the hay pallets in the buck...

    Not Too Late of a Night Owl

    Most of today was tidying up stuff and running a couple of errands.

    I had to get shavings & stall fresh before the little gal comes to clean the barn tomorrow. I also picked up some groceries for...

    Four-square is a really popular thing to play on our playground with the 3rd - 5th graders.

    First Night Owl Adventure for the 20's!

    I'm trying to cram as much as I can in before I go back to work next Monday!

    I have a couple buttons to sew on and I will have finished a current present and 3 languishing projects from a couple...

    Re: .....finally finished!

    Despite what you may have renamed it, it looks good!

    I, too, am finishing a bag pattern that got shoved into a project box and left for dead. It claims to be a 2 hour pattern (with sub text...
  16. Re: Just VENTING Give credit when you steal my designs

    I think you have a better range of colors in your design. You also broke the color split in a more pleasing way along that diagonal.

    The harsh horizontal line does not help that second design at...

    Re: quilt basting spray

    Now I am glad I picked up an extra can a year or so ago when I had coupons and I didn't need anything that wasn't already on sale!

    I suppose I'll go the 505 route when my supply runs out! Thanks...

    Re: Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think many of us are hoping for better things in 2020.
    I'd like to reduce my fabric stash and finish some of those projects that have been languishing in the sewing room. Heck! I'd just like to...

    Re: A Little Bit of Night Owling

    The kids I teach sewing to are between 3rd and 5th grade, so 7-11 years old.
    This session I think I have 6 kids and half of them are boys. Strangely, the boys can be more coordinated at this point...

    A Little Bit of Night Owling

    We watched/listened to the Seahawks loose. Lovely.

    Re: Video game quilt

    Google "Minecraft".

    It's green and a video game. The lovely thing about it is it's pixelated. It is all blocky, so it translates to a quilt really well!

    Good luck!

    Re: tea towels

    When I hear "tea towel" I think of the big, flour-sack towels Grandma used to make us dry the glasses and tea cups with.
    I bet we are all thinking different things.

    If you like the ease of this method, check out the Marti Michell Perfect Patchwork Templates.
    They seem fussy at first, but it eliminates trimming dog-ears later and most pinning. I make most of my...

    Re: Not quilting BUT good for craft fairs.

    Sweet!
    I have a herd of 15 goats plus the two livestock guardian dogs. We use the web collars to handle them and as neck tag holders. This would be a fun way to dress them up and cost much less.

    I have used quiet prints for backgrounds. I bought white with light grey snow flakes for Mom's snowman quilt. I also have bought white on white prints and hand-dyed them. I can control the intensity...
