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...

A friend over there just messaged to tell me the good news - well it was good news for him! I don't even know who the "white sox" are. LOL But if you're a fan - my heartiest congratulations. My friend explained at great length that this a REALLY big deal to you! He kept emphasising something...

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...

triangles, dratted things by Kate Dicey
Martha wrote: I am piecing my first quilt that uses triangles to make squares, and already I am thinking how much better mannered squares are! How do I get the triangles not to stretch, move in seam allowance, or otherwise fuss at me when I try to sew them into squares? Would a ...

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. ...

Quilting book by C & S
Someone posted information on a quilting book they recently purchased with a garden theme, which also included recipes. I can't seem to find the thread that provides me with the author and title. I'd like to check it out. It sounded interesting. Thanks -- Carole Champlain,...

October BOM by Quilterin
Finally! I just made it over the finish line with those two blocks before October ended and the directions for the November blocks arrive in our mailbox. I was gone nearly every weekend in October so I had hardly any time to sew. The pieced block turned out to be complicated (why oh why did...

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...

Quilt Labels by KittyG
Labels sort of defeated me also, Jan, and I'm not sure why, but I came up with an easy fix. I usually birth my quilts, and I stitch or monogram the date, names, etc- whatever would go on the label, on the border along the edge where I have an opening after the turning, or birthing, before I close...

Batting Strips by dogmom
No, not baseball related G; I just discovered that skinny leftover strips of batting make excellent stuffing for small ladybug feet. ( I suppose if she weren't small, she wouldn't be a lady!) (guess that means I'd qualify as an old broad bug! but that's another topic, and off!) I knew this is...
