  1. 15 seconds! But then I AM a professional!!!
  2. I know you will all have a WONDERFUL time. See you next time.
  3. I am feeling so blue that I won't be able to be there this year. I know you will have a wonderful time and learn loads. I'll be teaching at a retreat that weekend so think of me. I really look forward to pics and stories to be posted when all is done. I will definately be there for the next one, I think it will be two years though. Love you all, Lynda
  4. Thank you all for you interest and really nice comments. Meg, yes it is a paper piecing adventure and is about 58" square. Diane and pmuntz, I'll send you a message with mailing info if I can figure out how to do that, lol. Lynda
  5. Yes, Dori I have them available. Radiance is $15 + $2 shipping Venus Fly Trap is $12 + $2 shipping. I can send them both in the same envelope probably for the same $2 shipping. Lynda
  6. OK I'll try. Radiance was posted a while back but I'll put them both in, if this works?? Here is Radiance And here is Venus Fly Trap
  7. A great time was had by all, especially ME!! I can't thank my friends enough for making the trek all the way down to the coast to spend time in my studio and home. I didn't get any pictures but hopefully someone will post some they took. Thank you again.

    How do YOU organize........

    I have mine on the shelves alphbetically by title but I also have a spreadsheet set up that I try very hard to enter any new aquisitions before they get lost on the shelves. I can then sorf by title, author, publisher, technique, or the speicial reason I bought the book in the first place. Then depending on how I "remember" why I want that particular book I can find it and then know the title to look for. On a side note, I also enter on the spreadsheet what I spent on the book or pattern, now THAT'S really scary. Shockingly, I own over 400 books. Yikes!!

    Tutti Fruiti....

    WOWSER!!!!!
  10. Thank you all for the very kind words. Norma your patterns were mailed today. Thank you so much. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
  11. Thank you all so much. Lynn and Debbie I have sent a U2U (or whatever we are calling it now). I am selling the pattern myself. It is $15.00 and I am happy to send it anywhere in the US. If someone overseas wants it I will have to add some shipping and am not sure what that will be. I will be teaching a class at Boardwalk Quilts in Long Beach, WA in April and May (the exact date is not quite set yet). The pattern will be available there as well. So far that is the only store that I have talked to. I'll try to respond as soon as I see anything but just as a side note we are getting a pretty good windstorm and it is predicted to get a lot worse tonight so I may be without power. Last time it was 5 days so if you don't hear from me, I promise to return as soon as I can. Thank you all again for your support, you just don't know what it means to me. Lynda newellyn@msn.com
  12. I am so excited. My first foray into pattern design is ready to see how it goes. I should say that it is not entirely original. I saw a picture of a quilt made in the 70's in an old magazine. I tried to get information on the designer. I found that she has since passed away and a pattern was never produced for the quilt. I set about designing my own slant on the original. I made my original using a 60 degree ruler. It works, but I decided paper piecing would make the project a whole lot easier so the final pattern is a paper piecing project. It requires some skill in Y-seams also. Bekah of the Moxies tested the pattern for me and did a beautiful job. All of the Moxies have been so encouraging I can't thank them enough. Linda Rech has been especially encouraging and has insisted that I post the news about it. If anyone is interested I can provide particulars via email or via message on the forum (although I've not tried that on the new format yet). I hope the pictures have loaded.
  13. I'll be there Bekah, can't wait. I just packaged up some of my new patterns to bring too.
