  1. Retirement

    by , 10-04-2012 at 07:06 AM
    Well, after 23 years as Head Librarian for a small district library, I have decided to retire. There are lots of things happening here at the library and I think they need someone younger with more energy than I have to be at the helm. I'm a little excited and a lot sad about leaving.

  3. So excited!

    by , 10-03-2012 at 03:28 PM
    I am so excited. I just started cutting out a new quilt called Farm Scraps.
    I just love it. I am making it out of my scraps from Kansas Troubles fabrics. I can't wait to start sewing it together. Even better yet I was able to find a fat eighth bundle of Kansas Trouble Favorites to help me with the colors. I only paid $30.00 for it. So this quilt will be fairly inexpensive to make. Yeah. My husband would love to hear that.

    Here are left sides 9, 10 & 11. The "melon seed" at the top of #11 is the worst thing in the world to sew well! If you do this block, be sure to use a very tight weave of fabric. Its real work to try getting the ends to tuck under - hence, my thanks again to the makers of Fray Check. I like the quilt to be authentic,

    You will need a total of about two yards

  9. Question about the Bernina Artista 180 Embroidery Machine

    by , 10-02-2012 at 12:55 PM
    I haven't really imported any embroidery patterns and since my machine was bought in the last 90's it doesn't even have a USB port on it

    Does anyone know if there is some sort of other attachment for it so I can import patterns

    Thanks a bunch
