  1. Good news on the shipping front! Some of these pantos are going to fit into a medium flat rate box. If they do, shipping is $13.60 with insurance included up to $50. I believe insurance from the free $50 up to $100 is $2.65. I will cover insurance after $100.
  2. Marti, Deb, Donna, thank you for the emails! I sent you each one back
  3. All have sold. Thanks! I have 80 pantos I'd like to sell, $8.50 each. If you have an interest, please email me for a list at BLHUTCHERSON @ SBCGLOBAL.NET (no spaces). I can probably fit quite a few in a USPS flat rate priority board game box that ships for $18.95 plus insurance. Once I send the list you will have 24 hours to respond with your choice and then I will send what's left on the list to the next person in line. I prefer Paypal. Please send payment via Paypal when you reply with your choices. I also have OMNI threads for sale if anyone is interested.
  4. I have the following for sale. I haven't quilted for over a year and am trying to clear some things out. I will be listing some more books for sale soon. I also have some OMNI threads listed for sale. I mention this in case you'd like to include them in your box. Shipping is not included. I will try to find the smallest box possible to fit the items. Insurance is up to you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ $20 for all PajamaQuilter PajamaQuilter Reloaded DVD & Workbook PajamaQuilter Rethreaded Workbook (companion to DVD) ß I do not have the DVD ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Myrna Ficken – Fowlproof Feathers (2 disk set) - $10 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ $15 -- Lisa Calle DVD – Feathers of a New Generation (1 DVD – opened)
  5. Due to illness, I have not been quilting in a while. Up for your consideration is a large batch of OMNI. Most have never been used. Some wrappers are missing as they were likely shipped to me from Superior Threads in loose crinkly plastic bags around the cone instead of the shrink wrap. I will also include an OMNI 172 color chart with actual threads. I did do some highlighting on the color chart of the colors that I had at one time and the chart is cut a little bit so that it would fit into my binder. I am asking $450 for all 51 cones plus shipping,, or $10 a cone plus shipping. Buyer will be responsible for shipping and insurance (if insurance is desired). I will not be held responsible once the thread has left my hands. Shipping from California. I will accept Paypal, check, or money order. Funds must clear before shipping ** I have used these 2 cones (blue ice and steel blue) before but there is plenty left on the cones. The other 49 cones I believe are all new, never used. 3117 -- PLUSH PURPLE 3118 – BYZANTINE PURPLE 3112 – WATERLOO 3124 – LAVENDER 3115 – LIGHT MULBERRY 3114 – FROSTED LILAC 3136 – LIGHT MAUVE 3168 – GREENSLEEVES 3085 – GROVE 3166 – SPRING GREEN 3165 – BRIGHT LIGHT GREEN 3167 – BRIGHT GREEN 3074 – SPEARMINT 3081 – CITRUS MINT 3063 – WINTER WELL 3060 – WHISPER GREEN 3058 – VALLEY BREEZE 3155 – TANGERINE 3055 – ORANGE GLOW 3053 – SCHOOL BUS 3052 – DAISY 3049 – CHEESECAKE 3039 – LEMON CREAM 3152 – CLIMBING ROSE 3161 – BEGONIA 3131 – LIGHT ROSE 3148 – BAHAMA SAND 3106 – BORA BORA 3102 – ADRIFT 3090 – MEDIUM TURQUOISE 3096 – TREASURE ISLE 3071 – BEACH GRASS 3088 – SKYWARD 3070 – FOUNTAIN MIST 3087 – BLUE ICE ** 3110 – STEEL BLUE ** 3022 -- SILVER 3021 – ASH GRAY 3031 – CINNAMON STICK 3027 – OREGON TRAIL 3012 – DARK TAN 3018 – OAK 3013 – BAMBI 3010 – SANDBAR 3019 – GOOSE 3007 – ASH 3062 – CREEK BED 3005 – SESAME SEEDS 3015 – TAPESTRY TAUPE 3005 – ALMOND 3011 – BUFF
  6. Thank you all for the well-wishes. The last month has been a flurry of doctor visits and just trying to cope day to day with the exhaustion, shortness of breath and dizziness. I did get into see a Lyme specialist in San Diego. It was a 5 hour trip one way but worth it. Apparently, I also have Bartonella (cat scratch fever). He's suggesting a TWO YEAR regimen (ugh) of treatment and my first month of medicine, generic!, would have been $5000 out of pocket had I not had insurance. I pray the insurance keeps covering the meds but it is probably doubtful as the medical community isn't open to treating chronic infections -- well, except AIDS maybe. From what I understand my treatment is rotating round of different meds, antimalarials first to treat the Babesia, and antibiotics for the Lyme and Bartonella. I've had to go sugar-free, dairy-free, and grain-free, but for the grain-free, I'm going to do gluten-free first. I've lost 20 pounds without trying. No complaints about that part because I'm fairly overweight! But I do miss my favorite foods!! Ardelle, I've been following your blog via email. That's about the only thing I follow quilting-wise anymore! How exciting to be moving your shop. Your blog posts always put a smile on my face every time I see a notice of a new post, so thank you for those! Connie, so many illnesses can cause depression and anxiety. I hope one of your doctors has done some testing for you. I never knew this until I started researching Lyme and thyroid problems. I hope you are doing better and beating it! Deb, that's good news that your SIL is doing well now from her Lyme. From what I hear, a few don't recover or have to start treatment later because of relapses. I have a client who is possibly terminally ill with cancer and I have two of her quilts in progress. I keep hoping to find the energy and a day when I'm not dizzy to finish her quilts. Corey, let me know if you want me to send anyone your way! I've been turning people away!
  7. It's funny how life can change in a moment and all things that you love doing don't seem important anymore. It's been a few months since I've been here participating and loving all the eye candy quilts you ladies create. This morning, I woke up and realized how much I miss sewing and quilting and seeing what everyone here is up to and thought I could at least log on every now and then and enjoy you all even if I'm not doing much myself. Last December I found I had a thyroid problem and expected getting on medicine would help fix me, but it didn't. Then in September I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme and Babesia of all things! At this point I'm still undergoing testing. The upsetting thing is that no one caught my illnesses early on (despite having tons of symptoms) and it's taken a bit of a toll on my joints and health, but hopefully with treatment things will improve. I teased my husband the other night that I may have to sell my quilting machine to pay for treatment if our insurance won't. The health care system frowns on long term antibiotic treatment and it can cost literally $1500 or more a month just for antibiotics and anti-malarial drugs. I wonder if anyone here has Lyme or a co-infection?
  8. Jim, have you seen this? http://innovaquilters.wikispaces.com/file/view/3r1.+The+DIY+Handwheels.pdf
  9. Jim, mine has the ratchets, too. I'd love for Nolting to add a handwheel system to their frames -- overall I think their frame is really great and I love it, but that would just push it up there to being the cat's meow. Every once in a while I get a quilt too tight, and yeah, it's tough to get it released unless I release the belly bar a little first, but mostly that's just me as I have some hand strength problems, arthritis and overuse syndromes. I think you are right that my system would be more problematic to add a handwheel to. I've been thinking about adding one for the longest time but I just haven't figured out the how part. I see your brown vertical "sticks." Interesting. They look like they work a bit like the Nolting channel locks.
  10. The third picture shows me sliding out the large "bolt" which usually sits flush against the frame when it is assembled, holding the roller in place with a small screw. It is only protruding as I removed the screw and am sliding it out to take picture #4. Does your handwheel have a brake on it?
  11. Jim, mine looks like this. Is it anything like yours?
  12. Jim, those look really nice. I wish my Nolting frame had something like this. I'm not up to any projects right now, but I will have to remember your post and maybe see if I can't make something like this to fit my frame. Thanks so much for sharing!
  13. Rita maybe try cutting one section of the red snapper into thirds and see if making them shorter helps your hands. It did for me.
