    Re: Saturday Greetings! :)

    Lobster rolls, yummy, wish they were available here. We can get shrimp and blue crab easily but lobster is rare. I have seen them in tanks and always felt so sorry for them, I understand that once...

    So sorry you both had this scare and glad it was not worse. Sleeping in a hospital is difficult at best and truthfully there is no place like home.

    Re: Welcome Tuesday

    I have a small tray with a suction cup in the shower, every once in a while it decides to let go and clatter to the floor. It is always at night.:o

    Re: I'm Curious To Know.....???

    Mine is a peanut butter tan which is the color of all the bedrooms in our house. I have gotten used to it and don't mind it at all. One day I will probably paint it but the thought of moving...

    I am glad today will be decent as I...

    Re: quilter review

    I have a June Taylor version [actually have two sizes] and use it almost daily. I certainly use it every time I cut out a quilt. I prefer the larger one but the smaller one travels well.

    Rain is here, it will be soaking us for several days. I do believe the drought is over.

  17. Re: Anyone try the Quilt as You Go Hexi yet?

    I made a few with Christmas fabric and gave them to friends. I was not thrilled with the outcome but it was probably user error. They seemed a bit poofy in the centers. I used the little clips...

    Re: Rotary Cutter Size

    If there is any way to cut out your drunkard's path with a Go cutter it will make life easier for you. That cutter made the one I did easy to sew curves as it has a ^ built in to line things up.
