  10. I just finished a batik top and backing. I loved piecing with the batik it handled very well. I used a 3.5 needle, glide on top and bottom line in the bobbin. I used wool batting and love it. I got lots of definition. I am anxious to see pictures when you are done. I am sure you will do a beautiful job!

  19. I am pretty much like the rest of the girls. I use my SR for everything other than fills.
  20. Wow Heidi, I had to sit down and take a break after reading your "To Do" list. You wore me out and my brain is spinning. I know you will pull this off and you will have a beautiful wedding. Your daughter is so lucky to have such a "SUPER MOM"! Enjoy a wonderful wedding. Sit back and relax after this is all over. Smile knowing you were the biggest part of making this all happen.
  21. Sorry, but I wouldn't attempt to crosshatch an entire quilt. I have done backgrounds and borders which I marked first. It was really hard to keep everything lined up. I do use Dawn Cavanaugh's crosshatch ruler and it works great.
  22. Oh so funny. I too have swatted at balls of thread in my studio. I hate spiders too. Buit, I am terrified of mice. They just give me heebie geebies. Once my husband had to go out of town on a business trip. I took him to the airport and when I returned home a package of hamburger buns were gone from the counter. I was so sure it was a mouse that had gotten them. I moved to my girlfriends house, waiting for my husband to return. Sharon is not afraid of anything. We went to two grocery stores and I bought every mouse trap they had, about 20 of them. We went back to my house where I insisted she set all of them in my kitchen. When I picked my husband up from the airport, I dropped him off at our house and told him to call me at Sharon's after he caught the mouse. He found a squirell in our basement. To me that was not near as bad as a mouse.
  23. Juat adorable!! I love the bloodshot eyes, they really make the monster. Thanks for sharing.
  24. I think you did a great job on the quilting of the feathers. Very pretty quilting. Your customer should be very happy.
