    Re: WiP Nov 8 - 14, 2019

    I'm with you. I am already feeling the holiday stress. I will volunteer to kick of the thread through the end of November. Hope you come back rested and refreshed.

    Re: Never say never

    We all mistakes. Your true character will show through in how you recover from this mistake. You can do it. Believe in yourself, apologize, try to make recovery to the wronged party, and move forward.
  3. Re: Help, please?? Used bad adhesive; ruined precious quilt!

    I'm so so sorry. I can see all the love you put into this quilt. I hope some one with experience in this area can offer some advice.
