  1. This makes me sad. Prayers to her family.
  2. You two make a great team. Beautiful.
  3. Wow! Quite impressive!
  4. I used duct tape and one time double-sided carpet tape. Either works fine.
  5. I was medically retired so no time to think about it. I adjusted so well it was scary. The hardest part was protecting my new found freedom. People will take advantage of the fact you are home and do not have a job. Learn early to say NO and mean it and make NO excuses. Then enjoy your coffee and pajamas. Once I was working on some stained glass in my garage dressed in my pajamas with the door open and the UPS guy delivered a package. He commented that it must be nice to stay in my pajamas all day. I let him know that I had been up since 4 am, showered, put on clean pajamas (because they are VERY comfortable) and had accomplished a great deal that day. That's the last time I made an excuse to anyone for whatever I was doing. I still wear my pajamas all day and I love quilting in them. Enjoy your retirement.
  6. I've had my Liberty 9 years and I've replaced them three times. The first time I changed them was because they were stretched, Then I ordered some canvases that had been printed with a one inch grid and other markings. I thought I would love them. I did not. That was also my phase of "zippers". Didn't like those either. Then I decided I wanted some pretty canvas. Nope that was kind of stupid. So now I'm back to my natural colored canvases and I seem to be content with them. It's not hard to change them and the canvas is cheap enough. The hardest thing is the first time and fear of messing them up. I think how often you would need to change them would depend on how many quilts you do. I quilt in spurts and only for myself and I let my friends quilt on my machine and I figure about every 3 - 5 years at least.
  7. Replace them every so
  8. I love them all!!!!
