    Yesterday, yes even on a Sat., I had to go about 30 miles,  up to Raleigh for an MRI, at 9:00 a.m.
    Then at 2 we went to a friends funeral.  She had a sense of humor that can't be beat.
     
    Well they were a mixed race couple, and he was color blind.   One day:
    He asked a friend to put something out in his 'white' pickup.  The guy searched high and low out in
    the parking lot and couldn't find a white pick up.  He went back in and told Freeman there wasn't a
    white pick-up out there.  Freeman pointed to a pick up and said, "its right there".   His friend told him,
    "That is gold, not white!"   His wife popped up with "Don't let that be a bother,  it took him 3 years to
    figure out I'm white!" 
     
    Need I say the congregation broke up?  Too funny.
     
    In the evening we drove about 30 miles south to celebrate our 57th anniversary at Long Horn with
    our 2 daughters and son-in-law.  None of the grandkids were there!
     
    Have a wonderful week,
    and
    God Bless,
    Rita

    Leigh got a reaction from maggienoella in Maybe this isn't for me? Update   
    Please don't give up. I like quilting with pantographs and meandering. Did a quilt free motion with treble clefts for my brother I spent a lot of time with a pencil and paper before I touched the quilt. Hang it there it will come

I have new quilt new needle thread keeps breaking every 12 inches put new needle different thread still the same. Found a burr buffed and now breaking more loosened top thread the bottom is original. Any ideas??

    You might even try a spa treatment? Had problems with my Millie (was used machine) after spa was just like new and my needle break only broke the needle finger and needed timing.
