  2. While cruising the internet looking for fabric I saw a link from this blog

    by , 05-23-2013 at 02:52 AM
    And it had a virus attached to it, my computer was protected, but it let me know a virus had attacked.
    I had written in the blog that I was desperately looking for agua and beige/brown fabric. When I put "agua and beige/brown quilting fabric" in the search box, a link came up...it was my blog entry!!!! How did this happen?? does that happen automatically, or did some maliciously do this, because when I clicked on it, my computer immediately told me I had been attacked by a virus!!! ...

    Here's a picture of the new stencil I tried after practicing on a quilt for my elderly Mom. I couldn't believe how much I had improved.

  5. Stumped looking for aqua and beige/brown print

    by , 05-18-2013 at 11:24 AM
    I held off on buying the aqua and brown/tan fabric I wanted to use on my next quilt, BIG MISTAKE. It's all gone!! I have called all the local shops looked extensively online. Does anyone know whether those colors will be restocked??? They seemed to be very popular. How do I find out what new fabric will be coming out from the manufacturers. I certainly hope they come back I love the spa colors.

  8. Need advice to finish this purse?

    by , 05-04-2013 at 03:24 PM
    I am making my first attempt at a purse for my daughter's Mother's day gift. Didn't use a pattern, has a zippered pocket and one open pocket inside the lining. Anyone have any advice for putting on the top zipper and attaching the lining. No sure how to go about it, I have the zipper sewn into the top, do I sew the ends up on the zipper piece first?? Then attached to top of purse?

    Here's a picture of the purse I am trying to make, also I have FMQ into all the square on this quilt, now I am trying to figure out what to stitch into the frames around the squares. How do you think it would look to stitch straight lines perpendicular to the frames?

  10. Can't sew through two layers of naugahyde!

    by , 05-03-2013 at 08:02 AM
    I started a purse to give for Mother's day, I was able to apply some naugahyde to the side, but when I tried to sew two pieces together, the sewing machine gets stuck and drags and stretches the fabric. Any suggestions? I am using my old Singer 15-91, and a size 14 needle. I will post a pic next.
