Hey Ya'll- I went ta see the Dr. He said that I have sinusitis. So I was right in a way. Sinusitis is a type of sinus infection. He gave me some antibiotics, a nasal spray, Sudifed, & a cough syrup. Now I'm gonna be all drugged up. ;)Thanks for the soup & tucking me in QuiltE!

I cut a circle using postcard weight paper..then cut the fabric circle at least 1/2" larger...then using the yo yo technique gather the edge using small stitches pulling the thread so that the fabric folds itself over the paper circle...anchor the thread then press the whole thing... remove the paper...You now have a finished circle with the seam allowance folded and will not come apart.. stitch to whatever you need to. I also did that to the larger one..it was a little more cumbersome but it was better than needle turning the fabric. I love the totem pole fabric...so different...

Hi all, I'm back from my camping trip. Just arrived home late morning.

I was taught to make circles this way Honchey. I also used school glue and glued it down before I stitched around the edge. Will get mine posted sometime today.

JeanieG - I'm so glad that you are back safe. Did ya have a good time?

QuiltE - All I've done for 3 days is lay around, check on the Board & plan how ta git my UFO's done. I'm glad that I got my Bright Hopes done on Sun. Birds Eye is cut out & waiting for me. I just don't have the energy to do it right now. I'm worried about the people that were at the machine quilting class I went to on Mon. I hope that I wasn't contagious. My symptoms started that day & I thought it was just allergies. :eek:

Has anyone heard from Honchey?

Has anyone heard from Honchey?

Yes, Here I am.....I, too, am recovering from another bout with the Sinus Bug...My problem is my eyes water like crazy and then puff up and they look like peaches...I know what you're going thru Bev.

I just found more Cowboy fabric in my stash..I will post a photo of it later. H

**arrives with a bucket of chicken soup for all who are not at their best**

Sit back and relax, Ladies ... and let yourselves get better.
Yes
DublB, I know you're getting cabin fever, butttttttttttttttt ............!!!!!

Honchey ... sure, make us jealous with yet another score on cowboy fabric!

Guess What?? ... alas, my FWS sashing/border/binding fabric has been shipped and should be here early next week. I hope. I hope. yeeeehaaaaaaaaw! I'm sure that y'all will hear me scream when it is in my hot little hands!! :)

And too, the same LQS is going to start PC in a couple of months. Each time I go, they're working on some of the blocks for their sample quilt. When I was looking they had very little appropriate fabric as they don't really have novelties, but yup, they're bringing in a chuck wagon full of it!! :)

I've gone thru 2 boxes of tissues in 2 days. eye drops, nasal inhalers, antibiotics, hot showers, steam vaporizers, Halls cough drops and chicken soup. If it doesn't start getting better by tomorrow I'm going to see the DR for a cortisone shot. On another note.. Here's a photo of the fabric I mentioned in one of the other threads..I think..It's Xmas cowboys in different settings. there's even a Santa Claus cobwboy riding a horse . real cute but kinda big...He fits in the center of Children's delight. now to see what will go around the center square. i have extra if anyone is interested..PM me.

I'm so happy for ya! I bet your "chomping at the bit" ta git 'em in your "hot little hands."

I bet that LQS is going to have a ball with their club, & you get the benefit of all those fabrics! Hooray!

Thanks for more soup! It's so much appreciated!
