I'm going to use this part of the site to post reminders/links to things I don't want to lose and might be useful to others who haven't found them yet.*

for anyone in the area of New Braunfels, Texas you may already know about this theft as it was published in the local media but the link to the article on karen combs blog is still relevant as her priceless quilts are still missing.

Would love to get my hands on some ... I use the old sad irons for weights!
My favorite weights are "3rd Hands". You just sew some about 4" squares or rounds of about 4" - right sides together - sew them twice. Leave a little hole on one side about an inch across.
Turn - poke out the corners.
and FILL THEM WITH PENNIES! Takes a few dollars worth,
and they are heavy enough
