Home Again Home Again Jiggety Jig by NightMist
I am returned! The hospital finally let me out and I bolted for home. Well, close anyway. They said I could leave and I kind of gimped into a wheelchair and rolled out the door. My stay was full of trials and travails. At first they said I was doing great and could probably go home last...

is there a reason for becoming officially "not for profit"? by Musicmaker
I'd like to begin providing quilts, both lap and bed, to the cancer center my husband has been going to for chemo, and I don't know if I should just make a page on my blog about it, and hope people contribute orphan quilt tops and quilts, or become an actual non profit organization with all the...

OT-Pink on Friday by Steven Cook
I am SOOO excited about school tomorrow. No, not because it is the deadline for Senior Pictures for the Yearbook, which it is. Nor because the Senior Survey deadline is tomorrow, because it is. Nor that the deadline for the Senior Tributes need to be in from Parents, which it is. My life...

I wonder? by Pat S
I have never before questioned those respected quilters who say that they always do a double fold binding, because the edge always gets more wear. Well, I am giving a workshop next Saturday, on Borders and Bindings, and I was just typing out my notes for it. I was giving detailed instructions...

I've been playing by Polly Esther[_5_]
with Dimensional Curved Patchwork. It goes pretty much like cathedral windows piecing. The folds are peeled back and stitched so there's a curve rather than a straight line. The designer is Annette Ornelas, QNM Nov 2002. That was fun but not enough to make more than 3 blocks of those. ...

OT More on the NightMist Saga by NightMist
I am all poked full of holes, have three hospital bracelets, and my back is just killing me from laying about on gurneys and hospital beds. So Wednesday I went and had my bloodwork done, and the ultrasounds, and the chest x-ray. If I have to fast for tests I am by gosh only going to do it...

Third Little Quilt Pix by Bronnie[_2_]
I'm on a roll here girls! Here's the third little quilt. This bird is the Lorikeet, a very colorful little chap (see next pic) and comes up close to tables at outside cafes etc. They are around our house as well and will sit on the deck railing like the kookaburra, but mostly they fly around at...

OT Cat and Mouse by NightMist
Jiji is going to be just unbearable for a couple of weeks now. He caught himself a mouse. He has taken it into every room with someone in it dropped it, put a foot on it, and proclaimed his hunting prowess loudly. Now he is merely lounging with one foot on the thing and telling us all about it...

Quilted curtains? by Janner
Anyone ever made quilted curtains? Have been thinking for a long time about doing this, and having recently priced up curtains for our bedroom, have decided that it would be cheaper and more satisfying to use up some of my stash. I was thinking of piecing the top, probably sampler quilt style,...

Little Quilt Pix by Bronnie[_2_]
Here's a pix of a little quilt I have made today - a little gift to take along on our US trip shortly. I took the quilt out on to our deck to show my quilting buddy/ neighbour, and who should fly in for a close inspection but a kookaburra! Couldn't have orchestrated it better. At least I...

OT The date is set by NightMist
I had my first appointment up at Roswell today. I find I have scored one of the top doctors in the gynecology department there. Of course that means I am a study for residents and interns, I count myself lucky that he only brought in two to poke at me today. Surgery is a week from tomorrow. It...
