Greetings all by maryd

WOW, Wow, and WOW I spent most of the day speechless. If anyone thought I was addicted to quilting this past year - they ain't seen nothin yet! Now, I will become an obsessive/compulsive quilter! I have posted a few of my favorites from today (and will try to post each day) The Astros game...

this newsgroup by Julia Altshuler
I don't know when I've cried so hard as I did when I read my email last night. I'm probably just being too sensitive with everything that's going on in my life right now. You don't know me so I'll explain something: I am not sarcastic and rude. I am not a mushroom who belongs in a dark place...

OT - I'm in! by Queen of Squishies
Apparently the combined efforts of this group have prevailed again! I don't know who fixed it, their server or mine, we called them both. I have no idea when it was fixed, they don't tell you. But when I tried it this morning, it zipped off just fine! So the Hug list is back in business. Happy...

triangles, dratted things by Anne in CA
shhh -- secret method --- sew the bias seams together *before* cutting, tee hee hee I learned this in a beginner quilting class but have read it many places since. Cut two squares, each 7/8 inches bigger than the *finished* size you want to end up with; draw a diagonal line corner to corner on...

Another Quilt Comes Home by Sharon Harper
Earlier this year it was my Nanna's quilt that came home with me. It was the first Round Robin I'd participated in and I was so thrilled with it. I'd put a wide border on it with PP cornerstones and it looked just swish. I knew Nan would love it so I gave it to her when I saw her last year. ...

OT from a tattletale by Polly Esther
This is so precious and I just have to share it with you. A sister quilter of ours (who just happens to live on the Mississippi coast) bragged to me today that she has a herd of "Texas cowboys" cleaning up and removing Hurricane Katrina debris for her. Naturally, I will be discreet and not tell...
