The Grace Cometh by Nurse Ratched
You must know my husband--except in our house, we've reversed the process. We already have the table saw, the lathe (with some kind of Super Deluxe Chuck), the drill press, and the bandsaw. We no longer bother referring to it as the garage--it's the shop. Makes it a lot easier to raise the issue...

OT- ? about Transitions eyeglass lenses by Pati Cook
I don't get the darken in the sun lenses because the lenses always have some color in them. Plays havoc with matching/determining colors. Do think about that. Also here in the desert they are a lot slower to change back to light because of the heat. Pati, in Phx The HairyFacedOnes 'N Me wrote:

Iron kvetching was Re Happy ending for Joann coupon. by Elena
Did I use that word right? kvetching? like looking over someone's shoulder in a card game and giving unwanted and revealing advice? Well I "could" complain that my iron has no cover over the steam hole. So if I get really fast, the water sloshes back out of it, and it's REALLY HOT water too! I...

Ah-ha moment on Pfaff and machine applique by Loren in Seattle
I have a Pfaff machine and I adore the integrated dual feed. Usually. Today, after weeks of getting very frustrated doing some machine appliqué, I realized that it is much, much easier with the dual feed foot up. Much. Too bad I figured this out near the end of the project. I always put the dual...

Thanks! by C. Mathews
Carla here again! Thanks to you all, who wrote and commiserated with me. I had to laugh at some, and it really helped. Some of the smallest things help so much; the idea of winding more than one bobbin at a time. Why didn't I think of that??? I will be tackling that quilt today, with a fresh new...
