Raggedy Ann/ Andy hair by Butterflywings
Try # 4 After mumbleity mumble years, I'm working on DD's RaggedyAnn/Andy dolls. Thus my questions: When you 'do' the hair, how close do you put it together (they only say 3 rows--but that looks sparse to me), AND do you cut the yarn or leave it in loops?

Name this quilt by Pat in Virginia
Okay, so the quilt is not yet made, but I need the name ASAP. Why? Because the Challenge Chairman needs to start making the display cards, etc. The quilt will feature shoes. I would love to come up with a fun title for the quilt ... maybe a song, or maybe a play on words, or maybe a pun....

places to go to quilt by Cindi
This may seem like an odd question but here goes... Are there places where I could go, take my quilt with me, and use their machine to quilt it? Not hire them to do it. I don't have the room for a long arm quilter but I'd love to try one and/or use it on occasion. I'd pay of course. Has anyone...

I'm confused? Was one of the criteria for inclusion the number of posts over a two month period? Ill health, moving, computer problems, etc. can all contribute to a member's lack of participation at any time. I don't always respond to he group but to the individual. While difficult to type, I do...

OT/I got bad news by grammykathy
Early this morning at about 1AM my youngest son called me and told me that someone had set fire to their car. It was parked in front of their house and had both of the grandgirls seats in it. Now they have no car, no carseats and no way for him to get back and forth to work. Kathy Dillman
