    Hey, hit up that brother of yours for some of his stash.... ;)
    Yeah, I know he has a lot...lol! 8-)

    Your are the best brother ever! Way to go, and sis, if this mouse can drag her hiny to the machine, kicking and screaming, at first....
    I know you can do it.
    It's not that I don't want to sew. My head wants to.
    It's that I let my thinker become a stinker.
    I get to procrastinating and it becomes a circle, and I am stuck.
    When I finally do one thing, anything, and bust out of it, a little each day...usually by the second day, I am off and quilting again.
    I am probably one of the slowest on here, but I shall not give up!!!
    Sometimes I'm just cheese deficient :mrgreen:

    I have a super easy link for making chemo caps. They look like surgical caps, but are reversable and they also tie in back. Each one takes an hour or less, start to finish to make, and if you use material that is under $5 a yard, it ends up costing less then $2 a cap....if that. You can also (using a serger to avoide thick seams) sew scraps together to make a very pretty cap from the pattern. I posted a few, if you want to go to my link, where the pattern link can be found, and samples shown. I'll post below the link and you can decide. It is fun and easy and helpful to those wth cancer who otherwise have to pay to cover a bald/balding head. The link is for adults and childrens caps.

    scroll down if you want the link for the chemo sewn caps. It has the word Bev's in it with my name to the left. I hope this is found useful. The manager at my small American Cancer Society, says there is always a need for these caps. The only condition of use for the link is that is it personal or a 'give-a-way' and not made for sale. Hope I grabbed the right link here. Good luck and hope you will love the board as much as i do.

    Start with a small project first, not a queen sized quilt, it would discourage you. Then go on the chat board and say hello. Before you know it, you will become and avid quilter with many quilts behind you. You'll see your improvement with each one you make and you get a lot of encouragment from this board. Welcome, Tonsau7 from Canada

    Hopefully this will give you the link to the chemo caps...scroll down a little ways and look for my name (wordpaintervs) and a link with bevscottage...or something in it, and you will find the caps pattern.

    Welcome to the board tonsau7. You could get some fat quarters and make a pillow or table runner.

    Hello and welcome!
    I throughly enjoy this board and read it daily for inspiration but I have never written anything before. SO, you have already had a positive effect!
    I am in the process of moving for the third (yes, that's 3rd) time in the last 10 months. I have more fabric than I can take with me this time. There's quite a bit of blue and white, different prints. I'd be glad do give you it if you don't mind paying for shipping. If you have a particular style or colors (I don't have red) in mind please ask and I could probably fill a large flat rate box.

    Hi Tonsau7 sometimes I just need a fabric fix so try to go and visit a few close quilt shopes and chat with everyone while feeling the fabric. Creative juices will start to flow and you will come out smiling and ready for a new project by the end of the day and not have spent a cent.

    Welcome Tonsau7. If your looking for quality fabric at great prices Thousand Bolts is having a great sale right now, although seems to me if your brother wants to get you hooked again he could send you some. Your so lucky to have a relative to encourage you. We'll be waiting for the posting of your next project.

    Welcome Tonsau7. It's great to have you here on the board. Sometimes all it takes is a nudge to get started in the direction of your sewing machine, so grab a couple of fat quarters, and consider yourself nudged!! :lol:

    Have fun!!

    Welcome Tonsau7,

    Just to break the ice, your brother has posted pictures of your lovely treadle machine over on the vintage machine thread....would you mind telling us about this machine...do you use her for your sewing or do you have another machine that you prefer to use?

    This is such a great place to spend some time every day...the people here are wonderful....

    Again, we are so glad that you have joined us.

    Hi Tonsau7. I also live in NWA -- lots of guilds and friendly people in this area. Go to the local quilt shop and ask--they're more than happy to get you connected to other sewers/quilters. Also this group is great to give links to free patterns as well as encouragement and ((hugs))!! Welcome aboard.
