    Just make sure that your glass is half full of wine, and keep refilling it.

    Re: Baby clothes input please!

    Congratulations, GrammaBabs! I like to make swaddling cloths out of double gauze (Rob from Man Sewing has a tutorial). Sure, you only swaddle the baby when it's a newborn, but the swaddling cloth can...

    Lorie, the Storm at Sea patterns certainly bear a strong resemblance to Donna's quilt. The difference, though, is that the Storm at Sea gives the illusion of curved lines by pairing the...

    Re: Have you walked your daughter down the Isle?

    Perhaps in a bunch is too strong a term. My point is that you are setting yourself up for disappointment if you are secretly hoping for her to choose you. It's out of your control; let it go. As you...

    Re: Tiny red tick bite..Yikes!

    Chiming in here to say that I agree with Alina. Even if you are feeling better now, you should get a second opinion ASAP from an Infectious Disease doc. Lyme's disease is nothing to mess around with.

    Katrina, just go for it! To build your confidence, take a piece of muslin that is perhaps the size of a fat quarter. Starting somewhere near the center, pin a scrap of fabric (pretty side facing up)...

  18. Re: has anyone signed up for the 365 block challenge, a block a day for a year?

    Re: QUESTION FOR 2020....

    Jocelyn, no need for zipper anxiety. Annie Unrein (creator of ByAnnie products and patterns) has a series of video tutorials called "Zippers are EASY!" And they really are, I promise.
