    No classes, just admiring quilts, and window shopping. If you want to meet up let me know when and where. Friday, the 3rd, I am on my own, my plane lands at 9 am-ish. I should be there by 10am or so. I would love to meet you.

    I am going the Houston on the 3rd - 5th. Will you be there then?
  3. That is so sweet. I am happy he is getting to enjoy the quilt. We all enjoyed hearing about "Himself".
  4. I am never going to win. The contest form will not take my CAPTCH quotation. It either comes back saying I didn't type it right, or it just spins. Good luck everyone else, (sniff)
  5. I have actually learned to count forward and backward on my fingers, when I go through that process then I go for the toes.
  6. Bless your heart....thank you so much, lol. After 10 it gets difficult, lol.
  7. Yay!!! I am not the only one. Fractions freak me out. I have that quilters calculator and I have started using it a lot. I struggled through 12 years of school. Math is not my friend. It is terrible when even the tutor is at a loss.
  8. I am so happy there are math lovers out there, that is what makes the world go around. I will tell you a secret, wine tastes worse than Nyquil. I am not like other people. I can follow directions on a pattern. I can cut out patterns. I can piece. I can even come up with my own patterns. However, I tried to take math in college and had to hire a tutor. One night after a "groundhog" type day with my tutor, where she would help me through a problem...I seem to get it...then the next problem looked totally foreign. She looked at me and asked, "Who did this to you?" When I say I cannot do math.....please believe me....I cannot do math. I can cook, measure, even double a recipe. But don't give me anything harder than addition and subtraction.
  9. I am finished competing if it goes past simple addition.

    I love this quilt. Found the pattern online and added it to my very long, long list of quilts I hope to do in my lifetime. Beautiful quilting.
  11. APQS should know me well enough by now to know I am no math wiz.
  12. Thank you. No, I was typing as it looked, like you do on all websites. Thank you. I should maybe read the fine print.
  13. Pink Halloween Quilt

  17. Cables

  18. Cables

  19. In Harvey's path

    The snake part freaks me out. Shudder....Praying for you all.
  20. In Harvey's path

    I sent you a personal message.
  22. Surf Song Bargello

  23. Freddie is drifting

    My machine does this too. I think it is the bliss rails that make the machine move so easily. It could be the cord that causes it. When I am doing something that I need the machine out of the way, I just use my side clamps, clip them on the base, and shorten the elastic strap.
  24. Heidi these quilts turned out so cute.
  25. When I quit the biz, I was burned out on customers of course. Turns out I was the only quilter in my area who was legal. I had my tax id number, my business was registered with the city, registered with the county, and everyone had their hand in the pot...or my bank account. At the rate I was charging customers, I was not making any money. I wanted to go about this legally, but it is hard to do.
