  1. It is very time consuming and difficult to do. I was doing a quilt for a friend and explained I wanted the back four inches bigger on all sides than the front. She brought it with barely an inch bigger. I did it for her, but i wish I would have just told her "NO" because I've done several since then for her and she still makes them very short. It saves her fabric she insists. It gives me headaches I insist. Well, she has waited over 6 months to have another one done and I'm not in any hurry. I have never charged her to do any of them. You need to insist they come to you the way you wan
  2. Hi. It's been awhile since I've been on here. It's been a hard year. First four months dealing with asthma and bronchitis. Then I injured my knee and shoulder on my way to Portland in June for one granddaughter's graduation from high school and another's birth of my second great granddaughter. I missed them both. I took my seat belt off, turned around, rested my knee on the seat and reached into the back seat of the pickup to get something.

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 th
  7. 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 m
