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. I love my job and my co-workers and honestly I don't think I'm ready to be home all the time. I tell people (joking of course) that my husband will want me to start cooking & cleaning and I'm not starting that
In Greek Mythology, it truly is stated this Pandora was the main woman to at any time just before stroll about the planet. At any time Prometheus stole functions it provides of hearth via Mt.

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,

First of all, you will need the correct ruler. I use Marilyn Doheny's 9 degree circle wedge ruler. In order to get a circle, you will need 40 wedges. I've also seen a 10 degree ruler at my LQS. If you use that ruler, you would need 36 wedges for your circle.
You will need a total of about two yards

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
