  1. Hi, I live near Milwaukee, WI and I have a 14 foot table for my APQS Liberty machine. I want to move it to a different room, but it is too big and I do not want to have to knock out walls. It is 13 years old and in excellent shape. I just retired last week from my full-time job that never gave me much time to quilt. I would really like to swap it with someone who has a 10 foot table. I do NOT have Bliss (although I would really like to have it).
  2. I have tried to post this photo a couple of times and I'm having some trouble. I resized it so I hope it works this time.
  3. It wasn't mine was it? I can't post pictures from work. I will try to remember to post it when I get home.
  4. Connie, I will be praying also. I work for a police department and I know that the police and firefighters put their lives on the line on a daily basis. I hope he recovers fully.
  5. Cheri, One of the nicest gifts that was given to my daughter one year, was a towel with her name on it. The maker cut out large letters and fused them to the towel using the WonderUnder, then she stiched around them. My daughter used that towel for years when she went to Girl Scout Camp, etc. It would be an easy last-minute gift if you need one.
  6. I have read all of the Elm Creek Quilters books by Jennifer Chiaverini and I think that the early ones were better. I really liked the runaway slave one, but the latest two weren't as good.
  7. Ok, I have read all three of the "Millenium" series by Stieg Larsson and I loved them. The first one is "The girl with the dragon tattoo". I have to warn you that the first 100 pages are a little slow. Both my daughter and I almost gave up but it does get better. It's just that the author has to set up the background on all of the characters and this takes time. Don't give up. The next one is "The girl who played with fire" and then finally, "The girl who kicked the hornet's nest". I am looking forward to the movie that is coming out. Anne, I read Jo Nesbo's "Snowman" and didn't like it very much. I don't think he is as good an author as Larsson.
  8. This is a similar block pattern. http://www.quilterscache.com/L/LinksBlock.html
  9. Oh Peggy, I am sending you my heartfelt sympathy.
  10. I went several years ago when it was in New Hampshire. Both my husband and I took classes and loved it. One piece of advice would be to not schedule too many classes. You can get overwhelmed. If Karen McTavish is going to be there, you should take a class from her. I would also be sure and take classes from DeLoa Jones and Dawn Cavanaugh if you can.
  11. I have done that with small quilts, like baby quilts, but never with large ones. Great job!
  12. Sheryl, I would rather give you a hug than a kick in the butt. Consider yourself hugged.
