    I am not sewing the quilts for her anymore. I really could use the money but I can't trust her to carry thru on things. I have many quilting projects to finish of my own. I am not friends with her anymore.

    I hope you are not friends because of all this. How sad that would be

If I have time left she wants me to make a 8ft table runner for the main table.
    Apparently, you have a friend who absolutely comprehends the value of what you do. How exciting!

    Then! I go back and read a few posts before mine posted, and alas! Someone seems to be a big talker in more ways than one. So sad!
    I have long held that you really do not know me until you find out what I do when I hit my thumb with a hammer (translation: Until you see what I do when I am actually working, you have not met the real Omak.) Seems to hold true for most humans. Work has a tendancy to allow our true strengths and weaknesses to show through. Sorry to hear that all has fallen through :(
