    I haven't really gotten any sewing done today. I should be working on my mini tablerunner. I need to back it and quilt it. Oh well it will still be there tomarrow LOL

    I have been working on my websites the last few days. Updating them and decided to put all my free tutorials on one of them. Lots of work LOL

    I've been thinking of posting a new tutorial on the board but not sure what I want to do yet. I've also thought about doing another Sew along. Decisions decisions LOL ...
  3. My mini tablerunner in progress

    by , 05-25-2014 at 08:36 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    I'm going to try to keep up with my blogs a bit better I hope.
    Thought I'd share a pic of my mini tablerunner I'm working on. I got the top finished last night and now I just need to back it and quilt it. I use the birthing method since I don't like to use binding. It does make it a bit harder to quilt it down tho. I only know how to do STID so it will be fine I'm sure.

    This tablerunner unfinished measures 9" by 17" so will probably finish at 8 1/2" x 16 1/2" ...

  5. Gluten Free

    by , 06-22-2013 at 12:03 AM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    We went gluten free last Sept. I have figured out that avoiding wheat and corn of any kind especially corn syrup has really changed our lives. I had breathing problems for several years and when I went wheat free I realized after 2 weeks that my breathing problems were all gone!

    But a couple of days ago I must have eaten something that had a trace of wheat or was contaminated because yesterday I could not breathe! I suffered through taking my 2 grandsons shopping with my mom and then ...

  10. Had A NOT so Great Day

    by , 05-04-2012 at 09:34 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    I have done some dumb things in my life but today was just one of those days! I went to back out at Walmart and had a large vehicle beside us. As I backed out slowly we heard a thud! My DH said you hit someone! I pulled back into the parking spot quickly. I had backed into a small black car that I hadn't even seen!
    We bought a new 2012 Grand Caravan van in Feb. It is large and high and this car's roof was just the same height as the solid part of our rear door on the van!!
