    Re: Embroidery machine

    Re: Embroidery machine

    I agree with everyone--get the largest hoop size you can afford. And I second Cathy's advice about buying from a dealer where you can get support.

    Re: House Selling Angst

    If there had been an inspection, the buyers could have found something -- anything -- which they could use to back out of the sale. But having second thoughts about climbing stairs with arthritic...

    Toni, a realtor once told me, "Buyers are liars." In other words, they say they want certain things, but then change their mind. If these people had rejected 80 homes before yours, they are probably...

    Re: Good Sunday Morning

    Nancy, you will learn to love the gas stove once you adjust to it. Unlike an electric cooktop, it heats up quickly and stops generating heat as soon as you turn the burner off. I find it way easier,...

    Indeed, lifelong learning is now a must. I had a bachelor's degree pre-licensure. About 10 years ago, at age 52, I went back to school and earned a master's degree in nursing. My stepdaughter is now...

    Re: Buying local vs. the internet

    I figure there is cost, and then there is value. It's easy to look at the prices and see that the LQS charges more. But the support you can get from your LQS is worth something, too. Sometimes a lot....

    Re: Welcome Friday!

    In my area, LA pricing is usually done by the size of the quilt. Custom work starts at $.05 per square inch. It doesn't sound like much until you realize that your quilt is more than 11,000 square...

    One of the things I love about scrap quilts are the memories associated with each of the fabrics in the quilt. Glad you got to enjoy your trip down memory lane.
