    I thought it seemed the same! Nice to know that your original supplier is not really marking up too much, at least from the price I can get it for at the paper company nearyby. I'm going to start shoppind around for it, now that I know we have the right stuff.

    Ambitious? Perhaps "insane" would be a better word! LOL

    I know how you feel, I too did the "HAPPY DANCE". :lol: :lol:.

    I looked online and found some I think may be the same thing but not willing to take the chance when I know what I'm getting from esq. She's sending me a 100 sheets today and then in the next couple of weeks she's going to send me a ream. What we are using has to be 24 lb or less, because I had 29 lb and it's too heavy. I used it for a presentation cover. The one I found online is 24 lb or less. As long as esq is willing to shop for me I will buy it from her. I'm getting a large large stock for 2 reasons, the price will go up, that's a guarantee and I won't have to buy any when I retire.

    Esq. the price I found on line was almost 38.00 a ream. I didn't check the shipping charge. One thing though, I don't know if's it the same thing and if it's not , what would I do with 500 sheets of the wrong paper.

    i agree she's not be crazy with her pricing. my big concern was that she'd stop selling it one day and then i'd be out of luck.

    i looked at my log and i've ordered 1200 sheets from her for this year. so you can imagine how lost i would have been if you didn't figure out the original maker.

    you're my Goddess!

    if you don't need the income stay home and look after your DH.

    i took care of my inlaws for 9 years before they passed away. i started working full time again about 2 years ago.

    i agree, you don't want to end up with 500 sheets you won't be using.

    i love this paper, if you ever come over you'll see little bits of this paper all over my studio.

    Okay, I'm thinking I need to do a test run of a triangle block. I have the software which I am learning to use. My quest is what is the finished size of the triangle square if I am doing the 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 fishined size block. I believe I believe I read on one of the threads that it is 5" x 8" finished size. Does anyone one know if this is correct? Thanks

    I think there are 1/2 inch (finished size) sashing strips between the blocks and a 1/4 inch edge all the way around the outside edge.

    Paraphrased from page 14 of the Dear Jane book.

    in the software you would make sure it says the finished size is 5 x 8.

    if you go from a block to a triangle it will carry over the 4.5 size so you have to make sure to correct it.

    Hey Klue his is our mascot. I found "Dear Jane" one Saturday when I was going to my Dear Jane Group. Brenda use to come and sit and sew with us and then she disappeared. The group fizzled down but Jane and I are still together.

    I have found that if one uses used dryer sheets, irons it onto freezer paper that has been cut to printer size---the pattern can be printed onto it...you don't have to tear it off(a time saver) it does not add bulk to the finished blk. I had to find another way to PP , as I am handicapped & could not handle the firmess of paper....
