    It's always such a happy day when mine comes! I wait until everything is done--then curl up in my marshmellow chair to study each page--folding down the corner just a wee bit on pages I want to make something from.

    You'll love it, Terri!!

    I just love the Flip Flop quilt. I have never done applique, but thought I would give it a try, will make a pillow first.

    I already do!
    It came with 2 other little things with it. One for embellishments and another for projects. I'm making the tote out of the project one. I have a get together I have to go to on Friday afternoon/evening. It's at the COs house, his wife is sponsoring it. I need to take her a little something, so I thought if I made her a tote, she'd like it. She's a really nice lady, so I think she will. Plus, I have a quilt top that is just sitting and doing nothing. I'll finish that off, and put that in the tote.

    You're going to enjoy this so much. It's one of my favorite magazines. They usually have patterns for all skill levels. And great tips. :)

    Have fun, Terri! I find that my quilting magagzines fill the void when I have only a few minutes (or am exhausted) to think about quilting. I always get ideas and little tidbits of information. I was lucky enough to buy a whole pile at a garage sale.........(although I do subscribe to a couple as well!)

    A WooHoo of a find at Wally World this morning. Was waiting for the pharmacy to open and walked back to the craft dept, and on the way back saw an end Vlearance display. They had a 12" reversible square ruler for $5, of course I couldn't pass that up.

    And when I was at Wallyworld yesterday picked up another little goodie on the same clearance rack that wasn't there the day before.
    6" x 15" cutting mat, 4' x 12" Quilter's Miter Ruler with 45* angle, adjustable leather thimble, some straight pins, safety pins and hand quilting needles. All for $7. It originally came with a rotary cutter, but looks like someone may have take it, but the type that it had included is the straight handled one, not one I care to use. It also gives directions for using the ruler to make a pinwheel block.

    Hi there, After you mentioned this particular magazine, I thought it must be good if you have it as you have been quilting a while, so have ordered my subscription and yes canīt wait for that mailman. Very rarely do we get English quilting mags in Spain, so order a lot from Ebay, got 6 more coming from today.

    Love your stories about your island home, must show you a picture of a spanish town house makes yours look, well yours is a palace in size compared LOL Elle
