Cinnamon (NOT OT) by Sartorresartus
I was reading somewhere over the past week or two about using ground cinnamon spice for quilt marking. Over the past couple of weeks I have been marking out a new wholecloth. It's been a pain. However, I learned some stuff. I usually use either a Roxanne marker (Quilter's choice) or a...

New quilt finished - pix by Bronnie[_2_]
I have just finished a Japanese fabric inspired quilt called "Kirichigae" which means 'changed cut'. Named after the block (#39) in the book "Japanese Quilt Blocks, to mix & match" by Susan Briscoe. The block comprises a set of four 6in. blocks using a 4" centre and striped fabric which is...

New Pictures by Sunny[_2_]
Gorgeous work, as usual, Steve. The colors just sing. I like the style of the birds, in particular. Just lovely. Btw, we're all getting older. ;) Sunny

Back to School by Lizzy Taylor
After 7 long weeks the boys are both back in school as of this morning. Now I can work longer and more productive hours at work which I hope will translate to better down-time at home including more quilting and catching up on stuff. I feel almost sane! Lizzy

OT OT how to destroy by Polly Esther[_5_]
I need to destroy a computer. It's not that I'm angry or anything. I just need it destroyed to ashes. There's nothing on it that would be particularly useful to the law enforcement drones - just stuff that's personal and I don't want to share. Do I take a screwdriver and axe,...

How To Become a Basket Case! by John
This is the last of these things I am going to do. They are just too hard to sew. When you have to sew together 4 layers of canvas, two layers of batting and Pellon stiffener, it is more than a simple mechanical sewing machine can handle. I had to hand sew the bottom to the side by rotating the...

OT no brakes on Hurricanes by Polly Esther[_5_]
I'm hoping all our friends on the Atlantic coast even inland as much as 200 miles are paying serious attention to Hurricane Earl. Hurricanes do not roar up to the beach and slam on brakes. They weaken just a little when they hit land but they spawn tornadoes and all manner of misery. ...

Mystery Bag Revealed. by John
Ok. So it really isn't a mystery. But it might have been a mystery, if I could have completed it as one. Let me explain. This Large, Shoulder Tote/Weekender bag, started out to be a Back Pack of the Bergen Rucksack type. I bought a bunch of heavy weight cotton canvas for the structural foundation...

Needing Grinch Christmas authority by Polly Esther[_5_]
What was I thinking? Our youngest daughter, DDIL, Grand and BF asked for Christmas tree skirts back last December and I thought that would be such a happy, easy gift for all 4 of them. The one on the design wall just now is for DD. She is such a fan of The Grinch. The stash had some...

help me assemble my quilt frame by Dawn
I've had this for *years* in the garage and have no idea how to put it together. http://www.reddawn.net/temp/quiltframe/index.html There are bolts with wing nuts all over it. The wide piece across the middle bolts into the narrow 3-pc sections on each end, there are clear marks where it has gone...

ping Leslie by Taria
Leslie, You would appreciate this. I just took Georgia in for her rabies and other shots. DH asked when I got home if I remembered her shot card. I reminded him those are for little kids, dogs just get a rabies certificate. Kind of funny. Dogs, kids, not shortage of shots with either. Taria

feeling stupid by Karen, Queen of Squishies[_2_]
Thunderbird, my newsreader, decided to update itself. Now I can't find the 'reply' button when I read the messages. What I wanted to say was - John, you should start a line of Girly accessories on Etsy. They look great! But I couldn't find the button. Alas... I suppose that's what I get...

CNN 5 yrs after Katrina by Susan Laity Price
After watching CNN for several hours report on the Gulf coast 5 years after Katrina I was wondering if our on-the-spot reporters who lived through the storm could give us a personal report. Are your communities functioning again? Or maybe the question should be were they functioning again before...

An Item of Mostly Girly Silliness by John
Here is a truly one of a kind crazy idea. While making one of the bags this came as an inspiration to me for doing something that might be considered somewhat "Off The Charts". My wife shakes her head when she sees it and wonders if this whole sewing thing has gotten out of hand. I, on the other...

Realizing I should have taken up a different hobby by Sunny[_2_]
The first truly quilted thing I made was a 'quilt' for my oldest son. I used the yellow brick road pattern and had him pick out about 10 different patterns of fleece. It's huge. I made it long enough and wide enough for him to roll completely up in, head and toes included (he's 6'3"). I backed it...
