    It takes real skill to choke on air, fall upstairs and trip over completely nothing .... I have that skill!!!

    My plate may be full, but my cup runneth over with blessings.

    Does anyone have the die cut machine for these? Or, is there somewhere to buy pre cuts?

    I am still thinking on this one.

    Oh I feel so lucky to have that particular magazine. They call it the Spools quilt but I think it looks more like apple cores.

    Well, fast-forward and here we are, January 8, 2016 and I still have not done very much of my apple core HAND PIECING, #1 piecemaker. It sits there in a box next to my sewing machine just batting it's eyes at me. Re-reading this post has inspired me to get back to it and try again. I applaud terribb for being so consciencious in handpiecing while recuperating from surgery. That was some great quilt. One day, yes one day, I will get mine done.

    The running stitch has not been my best friend -- ever. Perhaps that's why I prefer machine stitching. I know I need to develop patience...and humility. ;o)
