    I agree. I have it mostly on quilting, funnies, and quotes. Great way to organize one's library.
    i stopped looking at recipes because it just made me hungry.

    Hey Barb. I have no idea. Everyone has been so busy, I figured if they get here great, if not oh well. I have posted all that I have received. Thanks for checking.

    Hey ladies, busy weekend. We had our cheerleading carwash fundraiser (we made BANK!!!), had to get my younger daughter back and forth to work and then a bonfire party with the squad, then brunch with parents on Sunday. In between I worked on a wall hanging for Rhonda's 4th swap. I have always stayed away from fusible web for applique because I thought that needle turn applique was the proper way to do it. However it limits you on complex designs. One of the blocks for Barb had flowers on a pineapple block that were done with fusible web and the curves were perfect! So I decided to try it. The only thing I did not like was using Aurofil - it gave me fits and kept breaking. I switched to a lightweight poly thread and while it showed more than I liked, it was easier to work with and the FMQ should cover it. Take a look - I really like this!

    Oh what a lovely rooster you made JNCT14.... I like him very much... I have been kind of busy lately and while I was working at the Gallery I sewed four and a half strips using the half hex template you sent me awhile ago...It's coming along nicely...I will be sending the Birthday Princess her "Candy" in another day or two..I want to add some new fabric to my candy stash...I have too many UFO's and other than what I've committed to I won't be starting anything new..I promise ....

    Hey Darcene - wish I could say its applique but I still say that if it isn't needle turn then its cheating! But I must say I like the flexibility so I can do more 'artsy' projects. I am not very good at those......

    Here is another fused piece. I copied the pattern from a sticker. It is for a friend who is a teacher - her theme this year is owls (5th grade). We also copied the pattern onto 8.5" squares. The kids will color the owls and I will heat set them and create a wallhanging. I love this owl though -he has googy eyes! Why am I on a bird kick?????

    OK I finished my WH for Rhonda's 4th swap. I am entering this in the Durham Fair, along with some quilts. I don't think it will win a ribbon but it did come out really cute.
