This has forced me to eat more greens (I can't let them go bad, right?) and to try new recipes. Because being

  2. looking for a quilt pattern with fussy cut cardinals.

    by , 11-19-2014 at 05:23 PM
    Hi! I'm looking for a pattern that I think was in love of quilting. Bought the fabric to make it, didn't get to it last year and put it away. Now ready to do it for my Mom's best friend but I seem to have given away that magazine. It was squares with cardinals in the middle and a dark green border I think. It had sashing between the blocks and the fabrics where definitely from a Christmas line. I thought the magazine was from last year but maybe it was the year prior. Does this ring a bell for anyone? ...

  3. Molas

    by , 11-19-2014 at 10:15 AM
    The mola in my avatar is a very traditional design, incorporating geometric shapes and animals and using a multitude of colours. It was made by a Guna woman. I have a photo of her below, with some of her other work hanging in the background. If you look closely you will see that she has a mola sewn into her top, again, very typical dress of the Guna ladies.

    In the photo, the molas hanging on the left hand side are 'touristic' molas - made to appeal to the tourists, the colours, ...

  5. Brother Embroidery & Sewing SE425

    by , 11-11-2014 at 05:21 PM
    Oh my this machine is going to get the best of me. It has the USB and for the life of me, I can't figure how or where to load designs on my PC and transfer them to sew to embroider. I want to put some fancy monograms on some sweatshirts for my grandkids. Probably do some scarves. Is there some kind of software program that would be easy as pie for me to use Hey y'all I am serious and Christmas is right around the corner.

    I've not done anything with bobbin tension, just have the machine on 'auto'.

    by , 11-10-2014 at 12:09 PM
    Hi, I'm new here and to longarm quilting. A little background. My Mom purchased a Proto Longarm Stitch Wizard which I have inherited.

Mom has passed and was my only reference. My husband and I have been trying to get machine back up and running.
    We have managed to get it running but I am having issues ! My top thread ...

  10. Something New

    by , 11-03-2014 at 06:13 PM
    Hi, just bought me a Brother PE770 embroidery machine. I love my embroidery almost as much as quilting. Tried it out the other night and it is so easy, user friendly, I guess you can call it. My husband just got himself a
    red tractor, but I embroidered him a green one on an old shirt to test it out.
    Can hardly wait to make lots of Christmas gifts with. Husband is putting down my flooring, way over do, in sewing room tonight. Have so much stuff and so little space to put it in. Anyway ...
