Boy do I agree wwith you on the pinked edges! I found some flannel material on-line that I loved for a quilt for my 1st gg-son ordered and waited because I liked it so much but when the charms came the edges were pinked so out the door went the rag quilt plan and I needed then to go to Plan B. I wish they would let you know if the charms were pinked or not since I have also bought some that weren't.

However, didn't want to take it home without asking the more knowledgable folks first. What do you all think? Should I drive back over there and buy it or leave it?
Sew-Rite M7 bought one
It is going down below zero tonight! This is the way it is supposed to be here!
Of course, I don't have to go out into it, so I can just sit inside in front of the wood stove (which my husband takes charge of) and sew and watch Food Network! Just a little bit of heaven....
I don't know that I've ever finished three little quilts in a week, but I did this week!
One is for our great-niece, Meghan. Her Mom says that she still plays with her American Girl doll sometimes.
The next is my AAQI quilt for February. I'm calling it Butterfly Kisses. The block is called Exquisite. I first saw it in an old Gwen Marston book of small block designs.
The third is my DQ swap quilt for February. I just mailed it off to my swap partner today,
I was just reading a little of "The Man's" history. He was quite the rogue and very busy. He had 20 children. I'll have to get a book on him and read all about his craziness.
In the meantime, I'll enjoy his work on the best invention evah! The spectacular sewing machine. I love sewing machines, I don't care if they are Singer's or Sears. They are all wonderful to me.
It's Friday and when I get off from work in 15 minutes, I will be going home to
As some of you may, or may not know, one of the primary ways I earn a living these days is by making mantillas. What's a mantilla? It's a veil. Nope, not a wedding veil. These are made for women who wear them to church on Sundays - usually those who attend the Latin Mass. Also, if you're going to the Vatican and are fortunate enough to have an audience with the Pope, you'll need one.
Anyway, with quilting and this and that intrusion into the regular pattern of my life, I am soooo behind

We had decided to let Shimano live her days in contentment--and besides once easy dog, one cat, four rabbits, and five horses is plenty!
But, last weekend my sister texted me a photo of two puppies someone had abandoned at her home--out
