    Hi all, I received an e-mail today from one of my angels. Her name is Barbara and I hope she will be joining us soon. Come on, Barbara, join in.

    In her picture she showed me a "mistake" she made while sewing and watching TV. She was doing machine applique and used the blanket stitch backwards. I love the look of it and may use it myself at some point. I call it the Barbara's stitch. What do you all think?

    Here is the hole thing
