  1. Had A NOT so Great Day

    by , 05-04-2012 at 09:34 PM (Rhonda's Retreat)
    I have done some dumb things in my life but today was just one of those days! I went to back out at Walmart and had a large vehicle beside us. As I backed out slowly we heard a thud! My DH said you hit someone! I pulled back into the parking spot quickly. I had backed into a small black car that I hadn't even seen!
    We bought a new 2012 Grand Caravan van in Feb. It is large and high and this car's roof was just the same height as the solid part of our rear door on the van!!

Here is a picture, the black border closest to the panel is wider on the sides and so is the border outside the pieced pine trees. It works for me but with this picture

  9. Tangled

    An exercise in Tangle, Zen that is.........
    Decided to try the ZenTangle thing, so with pen in hand, I threw caution to the wind.. Its a good start I think. I layered two pieces of white broadcloth and used black thread. The back is interesting too. I think I will bind the edge and keep both sides as reference. This will be the first of several subjects.

    PS, can you tell she looks tired and somewhat sad? Yeah, I've been under the weather its funny how your work will reflect

  10. prevent fraying

    by , 04-30-2012 at 07:29 AM
    Nothing worse than having 8" blocks with 64 tiny pieces "fray" apart from handling before being sewn into a quilt top! I prevented this by cutting a 9" sq. of cardboard and using 2 - 3 binder clips to hold it in place. I can play around with arrangements without getting fabric threads all over the place and the tiniest pieces keep their 1/4" seam. This could work with any size block using poster board or cardboard.
