I have been quilting for seven years and find myself needing/wanting a new lap hoop. I have the traditional round 14" hoop (very old and flimsy) without a lap or floor stand attachment and l am looking into investing in a newer, more solidly constructed hoop. I have researched the newer ones on the internet, but still cannot decide which one will best suit my needs. There are quite a few new options, and I was hoping that some of you might be able to offer feedback

The reason I want to do this is she is getting too fat on dog food and yet she whines all the time for snacks. Since I have
I have finished the first 20 blocks! I have been paper-piecing most of them - have to remove paper from the last three, then moving onto the next 5.

I wish I had taken a picture of this swag lamp when I bought it. I got it at a yard sale for $1.00. It was probably from the 60s. The shade was cylindrical and stained and broken with cowboys riding horses.
I grabbed a different stained up white lampshade and decoupaged the tissue paper onto it. I then glued on the ribbon and beaded it all around. Also beaded the pull.
