  3. Homemade spray glue

    I am in the process of string piecing a bunch of quilt blocks, and I decided to use up some scrap batting to make the blocks. I glued the batting to the backing, and this is the glue I used.

    Spray Glue

    Boil 3 cups water, add 1/2 tsp salt. Reduce heat to medium, whisk 3 Tbsp flour into the water, a pinch at a time. Continue whisking to break up the flour, and cook until it thickens to a consistency of egg white, or maybe gravy.

    Living in Kansas and we got hammered with "thunder snow" this morning--think about 10-12" total--hard to tell because it blew really hard--and have a drift near the truck that is at least 4' high! Trudged out to feed horses and totally exhausted when I came in!

    BUT it meant schools were closed so no work for me today OR tomorrow--finishing a string QAYG for a baby shower for next weekend and then back to a birthday quilt for DIL--loving this!

Size:  863.5 KBI decided to use up a lot of my mostly left over Civil War fabrics and when I saw this Bear Paw quilt in a recent magzine I knew it would be the one! It is taking a lot of time with the cutting, stitching, pressing, trimming, sewing etc. It seems to be more work then my Dear Jane quilt was!! But I am loving how it is looking so far.

  8. Using your credit card on line

This will clear all your credit card information off so someone cannot come behind you and hack your card information. He said to do it IMMEDIATELY after you order. This would not have helped these unfortunate people, but might help someone

I was thinking about just binding it as is, but I am not sure it that would work since the hexagons are so small.

  10. Lost iPod Touch

    by , 02-19-2013 at 09:53 PM
    Today's post isn't about quilting, but about electronics safety ...

    My grandson lost my iPod Touch last night at our local Fred Meyer store. He left it in the cart (in excitement over the new Batman figure I bought him). The $4.99 Batman toy is going to cost me almost $400!!!!!

    I learned today that I could have had a password on it to lock it so if I lost it (which I did) no one would be able to access the information on it. If you have one and it doesn't have a password ...
