OT Beavers! by Night Mist
I had been thinking that our bitty patch of inland wetland was a spring that had been allowed to bog up. Nope. We have a beaver family that moved in and made themselves to home. We will be keeping an eye on this to see if we have to put in a pond leveler to keep the water from expanding too far,...

Trouble with the tension disks by [email protected]
My thread gets stuck tightly between the tension disks and then breaks. It was sewing just fine off the quilting frame and I was using embroidery thread. On the frame it's all the time. Changed the needle, oiled the machine and I'm using the same thread as before. Ant answers?

The Waterway Quilt by [email protected]
Hello Kay, Yes, that is the quilt and it looks easy to make which is what I need for charity quilts. I enlarged this quilt. Since the quilt just uses squares and rectangles it was easy to enlarge. Thank you Kay for making it easier to see. Brian usually helps me, so having a backup(you)...

OT Finally! Actively house shopping by Night Mist
As most of you may grok based on my posting history, the house I live in has been going all to heckies for better than a decade. I have finally gotten my family to agree that we must move. What is more I have convinced them at long last that it will be more economically sensible to buy. Between...

String Quilt by [email protected]
Hope you all have made a string quilt before. I love to use up my left over pieces of material from previous quilts. This helps to get rid of a lot of material. You do have to sew these strips on a foundation and mine were 10 1/2 inches, after pressing and squaring up these blocks are now 10...
