Intro by Rose in CA[_3_]
Hi y'all. I'm back in the fold again after several years away. It is so cozy and wonderful to see so many of the "old" gang here. Way back at the beginning of time I posted as "Anne in CA". After a "rough patch" that included divorce and many new beginnings, I posted again as "Rose in CA". I went...

It must be the season by Bonnie NJ
Feel the need to listen to old friends and this is the place to find many. Tomorrow I'll go to my daughter's for the feast, but today I feel so sad. The baking is done and all day I've been thinking of my son, so many memories and pumpkin pie was always his favorite. I'm sure tomorrow will be...

While you're not looking by Polly Esther[_5_]
Hee, he, heeee. While everybody's really busy, I think I'll just sneak in here and mention that it is nearing time for the telling of the Terrible Christmas jokes. There are folks in our family who sail the Christmas tree up before the GBC has even cooled. We're not in that big a hurry but...

OT Pastry Wars by NightMist
I have seen more of my relatives recently than I have in the last thirty years. After they get past the "My you are looking well!" or, "I thought you were sick!" stage, they have tended to fall back on "What are you doing for the holidays?" This usually comes around to cooking as a safe topic...

Baby quilt finished! by IMS[_6_]
....don't you just LOVE getting an inviation just one week prior to the event? Fortunately, I started planning this quilt when I learned my niece was pregnant (this baby makes me a great-aunt!!!) but I honestly didn't expect the shower to be until mid-December since she isn't due...

Heard from Pati!!!! by Tia Mary
I got an e-mail from Pati today. She said that she had been through a rough patch but is now doing better. She said she is working on the quilts again, too. I told her that if it would make life easier for her, I would come get the quilts and take over. Since I can't work on the quilts...

ready to assemble! by Mary
The quilting is finished on my latest quilt, and I am ready to begin assembling it! This is going to be a BIG quilt -- 9 feet by 9 feet -- and has 81 blocks, each with 72 pieces of fabric, all pieced and quilted by hand (stitch-in-the-ditch). No piece in a block is larger than 2" or smaller than...

Kenmore Needles by Bobbie Sews More
A friend asked about needles for her older 1960's Kenmore sewing machine that she got after her sister had passed over. It has been awhile since I had a Kenmore and used the cams. Which needles do you use for the embroidery stitches? Thank you! Barbara in FL

Mom's health by Susan Laity Price
We made the decision this week to put Mom on hospice care. We don't know if she will be with us for weeks or months. She has lived a full 96 years and I am very thankful to have had her in my life all this time. She remains at my home. I will have help with her care at least part of each day. Two...

Dazor lights/magnifiers by Steph
Hello, I read consistently but don't post a lot, dropping in to say hi and ask a question! My Mom is thinking of getting a lighted magnifier. She saw someone using one a quilting show and it looks like it would really help her as she's learning free motion quilting. It's not an...

The thing I hate the most about quilting is ....... by Sunny[_2_]
ripping out zig-zag or blanket stitches made by my sewing machine in the course of applique. Now, what's your favorite task to hate? Sunny Yes, miles and miles of it.

A very special gadget by Polly Esther[_5_]
I don't think our Gadget Queen has seen this one and it is pretty close to 'on topic'. Babies need lots of receiving blankets and the ones with a crocheted or blanket-stitched edge are so special. There's a rotary blade that makes holes along the edge of a square of nice flannel that are...
