    ---wrap belt around treadle pulley and SM pulley and pull tight and cut where ends meet (don't worry about cutting short the belt will stretch)
    ---examine wire staple that comes with belt, get drill bit slightly bigger than staple diameter and drill hole

    I want to say thank you for the great people who gave me courage and support while I was fighting with the idea of taking care of my Mother who has Dementia. I want you all to know that she is doing well in the Assisting Living. She eating well, and sort of happy. She recognizes me and looks forward to my visits. My stress level is much better. Again THANK YOU Norma

  3. Saw this in a dream and now I really want to make it...

    I use that pattern all the time in many ways. It is a good pattern for crib quilts. After making the center part with the squares, unless it is a scrap, usually 2 colors, use the darker color for a border and do fancy stitching. I made one for my GGD and quilted the border with elephants. Rettie V.Grama

  4. Fabulous Friday!

    by , 11-26-2011 at 03:45 AM (My Happy Place)
    Well, spent the day with friends making the Lil Twister Christmas Wreath (will post pics later). We had a wonderful time and of course, talked our heads off! Then we had the most delicious lunch of burritos and homemade chili that was made by one friend's husband! What a man!

    We had so much fun and each one of our wreaths is going to be gorgeous. They probably finished theirs; I had to leave because I was exhausted and having some episodes of my heart fluttering. When I came ...

  5. Thanksgiving Mishaps & Progress.

    by , 11-25-2011 at 07:22 PM
    I hope everyone has had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I seemed to have had one kitchen mishap after another (so unlike me). I even had a pie coming fresh out of the oven on the way to the cooling racks go SPLAT. This was after I had gotten the filling all in my hair and on my clothes as I was mixing it. All I could do was laugh it off and make another one. Then I spilt raisins EVERYWHERE! To end the night, I spilt hot candied yams/ the juice all in my refrigerator and on me. For someone who loves ...

  8. Another Vintage Machine

    by , 11-25-2011 at 01:40 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    My DD came over with her DH and good friend and we had lunch together today. DD made lasagna and garlic bread, I made salad and chocolate cake. We also had wine. Yummy. DD brought over the sewing machine that belonged to her grandmother who passed away earlier this month. It's a Domestic in a cabinet. The cabinet is a little iffy but still standing and the machines sounds great. I plugged it in and just pressed the foot pedal to see if it would run and it's nice and quiet. DD didn't have ...
