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...

OT had to share this one by Polly Esther[_5_]
Down in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana, Boudreaux gets a job with BP helping with the oil spill cleanup. He reports for work and is told to speak to a supervisor about his assignment. He finds the man and asks, "What it is I supposed to do?" The supervisor tells him to go to the animal shelter and...

New quilt finished - pix by Bronnie[_2_]
I have just finished a Japanese fabric quilt which I have titled "Kirichigae". Kirichigae means 'changed cut' and is the name of the block (#39) from the quilt book " Japanese Quilt Blocks, to mix & match" by Susan Briscoe. There are some lovely block designs in this book. The block...

D.A.R. Fabric by John
My wife just made me aware of this line of fabric that is produced under the Imprimatur of The Daughters of the American Revolution, of which she is a member. It looks quite impressive and complete. I have not seen any of it in person, but they wouldn't do anything by 1/2 measures, or at least that...

Young'uns by Sunny[_2_]
In the morning I'm going to teach a young woman how to cut fabric for quilts. And probably how to sew. She's never used a sewing machine, thought she was going to cut 'just blocks' for a 6' x 6' quilt for each of her bridesmaids and groomsmen (that would be six, and the wedding in next spring)....

OT wacky weather by Taria
We have had a pretty weird summer this year. Yesterday really topped it all. On rare occasions we get some rain in the late summer. Just a bit usually and it is not often. Yesterday was the exception. Hail was about 3/8". http://www.flickr.com/photos/desertquilter/4931211892/ Taria

My Saturday adventure by Sunny[_2_]
I guess I did my job. She left with a mountain of my fabric (LOL), a borrowed cutting mat, Alex Anderson's "Begin Quilting" and a list of tools she absolutely must have. I showed her how to straighten the edge of fabric, measure the strip, square up the ruler and cut with steady pressure (away from...

Silly question by Cindy Schmidt
Have you ever stuck yourself with a pin and have it immediately turn purple? Can't tell you how many times I've stuck myself while making these flags but now that I'm almost done, I went to grab a pin tonight and caught it the wrong way and now the whole tip of my finger is purple and it...

finished project by Karen, Queen of Squishies[_2_]
I finished a wall-hanging for a friend. I used a technique called fused-edge applique. I liked it well enough to try it again, and my friend LOVED her little bird. You can see it at this link. It's on facebook, but I *think* you do not have to log in or anything to see my pictures...
