    Re: It's Thursday, right?

    Barb, so glad your daughter was able to visit and spend time making memories with Dottie. My thoughts are with you.

    Re: Sending Out a Quilt Top to be Finished or DIY?

    I enjoy piecing more than quilting, but probably in part because I am more comfortable with it. I am also a perfectionist, and am not happy with my FMQing. I realize that to improve those skills, I...

    Re: Melatonin?

    Essential oils are very concentrated, so are generally diluted down to 1% or so. The remaining 99% is a neutral oil (like jojoba oil) used to "carry" the essential oil. The reactions to essential...

    Re: Machine lifespan

    And a plea to not get rid of a broken machine by "donating" it. My friend bought a machine at a thrift shop for $50. It wouldn't sew. My DH took the thing apart, cleaned it, adjusted everything, and...

    Last year, I made the Eureka quilt by Jackie Robinson, which contains similar stars. They were made by snowballing the corner of the log cabin strip before constructing the log cabin square. Some of...

    Re: Thread color for flange binding.

    I think the off-white would be less noticeable. Are you able to move your needle a little bit to the right so that your stitching falls entirely on the binding? It would look like top-stitching, and...

  11. Re: What would you make with this medical/nurse fabric?

    Scrubs or a scrub jacket. That fabric was designed to coordinate with all the most common scrub colors. It would also be cute in kid-sized scrubs. Or a tote bag. I love Jocelyn's idea about making a...

    Squeaky, I find it really helps me to make a swatch chart, similar to what the pattern shows on pp. 2-3. I cut a small sample of each fabric (usually, I do 1" x 1") and paste it next to the letter....

    Re: I want a pattern for a Christmas ornament ball

    I've seen this one done crazy quilt style with small scraps of fabric. They used the back of a seam ripper to push the fabric edges into the styrofoam ball.

    Re: Craft Fair went well today

    Ditto to what Caroline T. said about what to expect with eye surgery. Mild sedation is DEFINITELY the way to go. It doesn't knock you out; it just takes the edge off your anxiety so you are relaxed.
