VERY OT International traveling???

Trouble is, ordering bottled water very often results in something with more
minerals than normal!

VERY OT International traveling???

Bring a Visa card with a PIN number, stick it in the machine. Everyplace on
the planet pretty much has an ATM. And you often get better exchange rates.
Tell Visa where you're going so they don't...

Maybe my intestines are less sensitive, but I have never had trouble with
drinking local tap water anywhere north of the Alps. Bottled water is
somebody else's tap water, carried a great distance...

VERY OT International traveling???

There are dual-voltage hairdryers, so I imagine they make curling irons as
well. Buy an adaptor plug too. Lots depends on where you go and what your
accommodations are. Staying with friends? Hotel?...

Shaky hands

I was like you, a scoffer, until the day the needle actually hit one at full
speed. And found out why it's a good thing the tip of the needle has thread
running through it. I do hate replacing...

new to this group, have applique question

You could do it that way, I think. (Remember you have 3 layers with the
backing beneath the batting!) But IMO it would be hard to trim the
background accurately. Might just be easier to do the...

How to have a quilt appraised?

I'm no expert, but so much of a quilt's value depends on the quality of
workmanship, both assembly and quilting, whether the maker is well-known,
the age, condition and provenance (does it have a...

new to this group, have applique question

Welcome!
What sort of quilting? If it's an all-over grid, you could quilt it first
and put the applique on top. If you want to emphasize your lovely applique,
do that first and then quilt around...

What's on your design wall?

Good for you!
My wall has the 36 rctq BOM (plus 4 extra to make it 5 X8), sewn into a
little top/ medaillion, while I try to make up my mind what it needs. Plus a
row robin group project. And...

Mini Texas star

Nobody will notice the center unless you point it out. What about putting
the Texas state flower in the middle? Isn't that a bluebonnet (lupine)? You
might find one to embroider.

DID IT!!!!!

Congratulations! You know, you finish a lot more stuff going at your own
pace than lots of other people who "don't have time" or whatever their
excuse is :-)
And we'd like a picture!

Another of Pat's Geometrical quilts is finished.

Wow! In those colors, it reminded me immediately of that Japanese print with
the huge wave and the tiny boat, Mount Fuji in the distance IIRC. The back
looks much more complicated than the front...

You need a different doctor! And maybe a lawyer. Nobody has to put up with

My regular stash doesn't reproduce, unfortunately, but the Black Hole Basket

You may use any size you like! You may even combine different sizes -look

You may put your starting square in one corner...

Those Norwegian types don't talk much either. If your DH had been one,
that's what he would have said. It's an all-purpose phrase, but as far as I
can tell, it means, "Well now I opened my mouth...
