  1. Seeking Manual (or copy of manual) for Viking Automatic Model 21E

    by , 02-13-2012 at 07:05 PM
    I've lost the manual to a Viking Automatic (from around 1964) and need to find a replacement for it before passing it along to another family member so it can be well cared for and properly used. The machine notes that it's model #21E. If anyone has one or knows where I could get a copy (even just photo copied) I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    Is it too early for spring flowers? I think I will do this as a queen quilt for myself. This was my practice block.

My father is in a moderate stage so he can function and knows who we are and where he is and has memories etc but short term is gone and needs direction in daily tasks of getting dressed etc. I can say shave and shower and he is confused but if I go up and hand him the razor and shaving cream, he can do it by himself. Anyone else out there who may want to use this general

    Instructions for a Crayola Quilt

    Several have shown interest in making a Crayola Quilt so I wanted to show what I used to get started. You could use coloring book pages if you wanted to. I chose to use my own photography of birds. The illustration is of a Baltimore Oriole.
    Step 1. In photo shop I changed my photo to a black and white picture, then changed it into a pencil sketch.
    Step 2. I transferred the pencil sketch using Water Soluble Graphite Pencils ...

  8. I had to cut my binding strips

    by , 02-13-2012 at 06:06 AM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    Is that a good excuse to be late for work on Monday morning? I thought I had plenty of time, but I ran over when I stopped my usual routine to cut binding strips for my quilt this morning before I went to work. I just couldn't wait until tonight to do it. It was a quick job, but apparently not quick enough. I was 10 minutes late this morning. I just was so anxious to get the binding started after taking yesterday afternoon to watch a movie and do some housework and play with the dog.

    Had a lovely, busy day. I went to a church annual meeting about 80 miles away to preside over the meeting for them. This was my third time at this church, which has been through quite a bit of controversy in the last two years. Things are turning around for them now, so it was nice that they had me back to see them playing nice together.

    The sunny cold day was great for the drive. Just put on the cruise control and glide.

    When I got home, I started right in on making
