  1. David, that is a long board from Cirle Lord. It's called Sakura. I love it! Pretty simple to use and it looks great. I think it was just over $200 for the queen size.

  3. Hi old friends and new! I too remember how active and entertaining this site was. It is different with the new format. Lots of new peeps though! Love checking everyone's pics. I visit a lot, but don't post much anymore. I have had 2 complicated back surgeries since January and haven't been able to use Millie. I have at least 7 tops just waiting. Hopefully soon!
  4. I have this book and I love it. So many ideas. I have couple more that are floral elements. i haven't used them to stitch anything out yet, but they definitely get the wheels turning. Hope you enjoy it!
  5. Thanks everyone for good thoughts. I have had a multilevel fusion in the past due to a severe scoliosis in the lower back. It was a ridiculous nightmare that landed me in a body cast for 3 months and off work for a year and a half. Well, 20 years later, I have rotated above the fusion and have pressure on the spinal cord and nerves on the right. Thus, I have no feeling in my right leg. My hips and thighs ache, but otherwise no pain. The same surgeon that did my first surgery will be doing this one and he assures me it will be nothing like the first due to advancements in the medical field. He is being extra cautious because he knows my history. I feel better with him doing it because he already knows what he's getting in to. i will keep you posted. Thanks for your thoughts. Peggy
  6. This is so awesome! It restores my faith in humanity that there are kind, generous people out there who will do what they can with no expectations. And this time, Dear Linda, you have been rewarded with a wonderful friendship! Good for you! Merry Christmas.
  7. Thanks everyone for the suggestions! i ordered a small kit for a wool applique christmas candle mat. Great price too because of sale. I also ordered the pattern and fabric for a very cute M is for Monster baby quilt that I have been wanting to do. You never know when a baby will come along when you work with a bunch of 30 year old women. I also dug out my English paper piecing project I started a while back. Grandmother's flower garden in ginghams. I forgot I even had that. I think I can do this without losing my mind. Thanks again for suggestions. Peggy
  8. I thought about Hawaiian. I have always wanted to do one and I actually already have a pattern! I hadn't thought about embroidery. I like that idea too. I'll have to check out the Dear Jane and Elm Creek. I'm not familiar with them. No time to get anything ready to bind, as I am already pretty limited in my abilities. Thanks for the input!
  9. I am going to be having spine surgery in January and am not going to be able to use my Millie for about 4 months. I am in need of suggestions for some applique or other hand stitching to keep me busy for the first few months. After that, I should be able to sit at the DSM and do some piecing. I'll just have DH set it up for me on the main level because stairs will likely be an issue. Does anyone have any good patterns or suggestions for patterns that might keep me busy? I'd like to get something started so I can get the prep work done before surgery so all I have to do is the stitching. Wouldn't you know it, I just finished the applique I have been working on for the past year! Thanks for any suggestions.
  10. Wow! They have gotten so big. They are beautiful.
  11. I checked this out, but didn't see a price anywhere. Is this available on the website somewhere?
  12. Congratulations Linda! I am green with envy. After 32 years, I am holding on by a string. What ever happened to 30 and out? Well, I refuse to go more than 40. As soon as I faint from holding my breath in anticipation, I'm done. So happy for you. Hope every morning brings a smile.
  13. I love everything about this quilt! Beautiful work. I love the feather motifs you added. Fabulous. Peggy
  14. Funny you should bring this up. I have been using Super Bobs since day one and never had a problem. The last group of bobbins I got I noticed that the cardboard seemed different, and sure enough, they are shredding in the bobbin case. Maybe I will shoot a message off to Superior Threads to inquire about this. I have never had this happen before and now it happens very frequently and has been problematic. Peggy
  15. Very pretty Jessica. I started on the picnic quilt that I asked for suggestions on. I figured out how to use Adobe Ideas on my IPad. It lets me draw right on a pic of the quilt. I guess it is similar to the wacomb tablet. I really like it. I was able to come up with a plan for the quilting on my own. I'm working 12 hour shifts for the next 2 days, so no quilting for me.
  16. I have the same one as Dave. My only problem with it is that the seat rocks back and forth. There is a lever to lock it, but sometimes it gets bumped and I get a surprise when I lean forward. I've jumped more than once thinking I was falling.
  17. I hadn't thought of a panto. I was thinking custom. I don't do a lot of pantos. I guess it never crossed my mind. Will definitely check some out. Thanks!
