    I am too flattered to say anything except ... Yes ... Of course

    :D

    To get the pictures exactly as they are, just click on the word "download" and save them to your computer. If you want something with templates, I can probably throw something together for you and upload it here as a .pdf. If you want to be able to resize the templates to change the finished size of the block, I can upload as an MS-Word document, in PowerPoint, or in Corel Draw Version 12.

    Did you have something other than the Pinwheel and Broken Dishes blocks in mind?

    I recently made templates for an applique jigsaw puzzle block. I've only shared it with one person so far. She hasn't written back to say whether or not it was helpful. If you want it, I'll upload it. Just can't guarantee anything. I did it especially for her and haven't tried to make it myself.

    The things I do are nowhere near as good lookin' and detailed as those at the Quilters' Cache. (Marcia does awesome work!) But you can only print her patterns from the site. Can't save them to the computer. (I understand why she does that and don't blame her at all. She has a right to protect her work from pirates. :-))

    It's super-easy. Just click on the word "download", then click on the "save" button, then save it to your favorite folder on your hard drive. The, just try doubl-clicking on it in that folder. If it doesn't open up, you can copy it (right-click on the file name, select copy) then paste it into a new document (e.g. Word, Works, or something like that.)

    If those processes are just too big a pain for you, let me know and I'll send upload it again as a .pdf. tooooooo easy. :-)

    I am beyond flattered by your compliments.

    I sometimes find it difficult to see the boundaries between confidence and conceit. (I have a feeling I spend a bit too much time on the wrong side of that line. :oops: ) It made me very happy to hear that I actually did help somebody.

    I'm not yet qualified to teach an "official class" in the subjects you listed. I'm still learning myself. I have taught college level computer courses in the past, but not covering these topics. I would be happy to join you and anybody else who was interested in online chats at specifically scheduled times. We could pick topics in advance and each of us could share what we know works and ask questions of each other. I happen to be good at using a computer and could probably help you to either (1) figure out how to do something in the programs you use or (2) help you figure out how to figure it out. How does that sound to you?

    Sharon and I are talking about it offline trying to figure out a mutually convenient date, time and location. I can chat in either MSN or AOL. Don't know yet what Sharon has. I think we all need to be signed into the same chat program if we want to open a room and all be able to talk to the others at once.

    either that or we could check at a mutually convenient time to see if the chatroom here is clear. In the meantime, you can ask me anything. Just send a private message. If you give me your "real" email address we can talk that way, too.

    Yes, if you're really interested, send me a PM with your email addy and I'll email you back to get best times for all of us.

    Either of us for PM, we're pretty quick, (within 24 hours, usually), just noticed that Patrice had mentioned the PM, too. :? And I've been awake since 5:45 AM. Need a nap???

    Grins and Giggles make the day brighter! :D Try it, it works!!

    I would like to participate, too. Either AM or PM, is good for me. My busy day is Sunday., usually. My computer freezes up alot on chat so I may mostly read and learn if that is all right.

    I'm sensing that Sundays are convenient only to me. I'm usually tied up on Saturdays, but can probably make and exception. How does Monday ... say 7-ish ... EST (using MSN - please don't make me fire up the AOL. I beg you. LOL) sound to everybody? If each interested party will send me a PM with your vote on that and a suggestion of something you hope we'll talk about we can work toward a more solid plan.

    Tomorrow will only be good for me if it turns out my friend can't come for her planned visit after all.

    Anyone who's interested is invited and welcome. I'll just need your email addresses so I can add you to my MSN contact list.

    Y'know ya'll are givin' me some big warms & fuzzies, don'tcha?
    :D

    P.S. Tell me which chat program you use, too. First thing I have to do this evening is find out whether non-MSNers must become MSNers to get into an MSN chat room. If there's no way around it, it's a simple download and install. And ... if the AOLers are the majority, I'll just suck it up and join the crowd. It won't kill me. LOL

    Just don't ask me to Yahoo. Some sacrifices are just tooooooooooo much. :shock:

    Anyway, I don't do aol. It and my computer don't get along. Anyone can get msn messenger. It's my fav..no limit to ones that share the fun.

    A few of us will be on Windows Live (MSN) Messenger tomorrow at 2pm EST. Anyone who'd like to join in is welcome.

    If you don't have WL Messenger installed yet, it's pretty easy. Go to http://get.live.com/messenger/overview and click on "Get it Free", the click on run and just follow the steps.

    After you have it all set up, I'll need the email address you used for it. Please send it to me via a Private Message.

    If you have any problems send a PM. If you give me your phone number, I'll call you. If that idea makes you uncomfortable, we'll try to solve the problem using email or PMs.
