We are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with a first trip to Ireland for 2 weeks. We have decided to "travel light" and take only one carry-on each. I have always overpacked for trips in the past, and have sworn to learn how to get by with less. Can anyone help me with suggestions? Has it worked for you or is it worth it to lug a bigger suitcase? We are renting a car and will be in and out of many hotels, so wanted to make it easy on ourselves. Thanks in advance!
I am trying to get some of the Minnesota Shop Hop 2011 Fabric, would like either the border fabric or the overall scenic print. Would like a yard of either. Anyone have some hidden away?
I love surfing online and making a list of the Quilting Tutorials that I find online.

Now every thing I have been taught and learned has been that you start quilting in the middle and work out. Correct? Well not so with with Rachel, she had quilted all of the out side borders, and was then working on the blocks and sashing row by row. She did NOT have a single pucker on the back of either quilt. I know this, as they

Did quite a bit of thinking on how I wanted my cutting table to be and this is what I came up with. It was made similar to my kitchen island so far as the top, and I had 12 drawers of various depths in it. The top three are deep enough for the little items like rotary cutters and thread.
