    Re: painting cabinets

    As mentioned, I would remove the doors. Clean all surfaces with TSP. Rough sanding (just to scuff up the surface)and priming would be tedious but important for a good bond with the paint. I'd use a...

    Re: It's been a while!

    Thanks for all the compliments! How nice to hear that you've missed me. Honestly, I don't remember how many yards I had to buy for that quilt. I'm thinking it might have been eight yards. I know five...

    Some of you may know that Joe and I are planning to leave California. Since our return from the Netherlands we have been working very hard to fix up the house to sell it. Hopefully, in the spring...

    Re: What I've been up to lately!

    Thanks, everyone! Icing is mixed and colored and cookies are baked. Tomorrow I'm working on Star Wars cookies for the son of friends. He's going to be mighty surprised.

  8. Re: MSQC mistake(?) causing me a dilemma - What do I do????

    I'd probably remake the two rows that are the cream color instead of white. I'd go to the fabric store and take one of the blocks with me that I plan to use in the quilt and find a white that's a...

    What I've been up to lately!

    Hi, I haven't been visiting the Forum for quite a while. Mostly because we continue to be busy working on the house but also because I've been enjoying another craft. In case anyone has happened to...

    Re: Need holiday diabetic recipe help

    I don't have diabetes but I feel like I will if I spend too much time at my mother-in-law's house. There are way too many temptations here. In fact, I can't understand how she manages, at the age of...

    Re: Update On Little Olive

    Sorry to hear that your little Olive is so ill. All pet lovers/owners can certainly sympathize since we've all been in similar situations with our pets. If only they could live as long as humans.

    Re: A Disappointment at Whole Foods

    Writing checks is becoming quite archaic in this day and age. It's at the point now that I'm only writing checks for services. I had no idea that there are stores that are no longer accepting...

    Re: Checkered Dresden

    I really like your choice of fabrics and the order in which you placed them. Beautiful job.
  15. Re: weighted quilt/ what do you use to get the weight

    There has to be a more efficient way of filling the quilt.

    First, I would allow an extra two inches of backing at BOTH ends of the quilt. Only sew down the sides of the quilt. Turn it and set it...

    Re: Edith is going in a box

    Personally, I like it without a border. I would just use the background fabric for binding (or something similar). I also like the suggestion to use your background fabric for sashing. Then you could...

    Re: Informal poll/query about creativity

    I need a jumping off point. If I was brilliant at creating original designs I would not hesitate to call myself creative. I would also be selling patterns. hahaha

    Re: CS needs to be on the same page.

    I can't imagine it happening, but it does cross my mind. I just hope you don't get so far in over your heads that the company folds. Getting bigger and bigger isn't always better.

    Re: round two starts in the morning.....

    I wonder if the nausea is being caused by stress. Stress can do really unkind things to people. I guess sleeping in separate rooms is the easiest solution. If you don't want to do that what about...

    Re: Moving isn't for sissies

    I wake up worrying about this. The day is going to come when Joe says it's time to move. We've started purging but I feel like it hasn't made a dent.
  25. Craftsy is raising my blood pressure!!!!

    Just a heads up in case you are planning to make a purchase at this time. I placed an order for a class on Craftsy. My email shows confirmation. I go to the website and sign in. They have totally...
