Colleen MarieGood Day everyone, this is my first time bloging. I just purchased a Featherweight and it has a film on the base. I can scratch it off with my finger nail without doing any damage but not all will come off. Is there something/clemicals I could use on it?
~Formerly known as Ms Grace~ After months of computer issues, I could never log back in under Ms Grace, so I had to change my name. So now I get to start all over again with my feedback scores & all. Also, had some medical issues. I've missed all my quilty friends here on the board, and can't wait to catch up on all that's been going on here the last few months. Since I can't log into my old name, if I owe anyone a block or something, please pm to my new name. Thanks!

What I would really like is to have categories with photos of the quilts.
So far I have subscribed to Quilter's World digital
Sorry forgot the pics then had to re-size
It's been on my mind lately that I want to start a vegetable garden.
I've been researching quite a bit but now it is time.
I'm thinking this would get me out of the for walls of my house into a little bit of sun that we have been having in between the rain. I've had this dreaded flu for 3 weeks now and need to get up and going now that I am starting to feel better.
