    For any of you wanting the ruler it is a "10 degree wedge ruler". Online it's $22 to $25. They also have a 9 degree but I used the large one.

    I think I have to buy that ruler! My Table Topper should be arriving today or tomorrow, I have a confirmation number but can't find it right now!

    Jan, I love that beautiful Blue table topper you made! I love them all! and I saw a hint on here that sounded like me!! I like anything~ And to answer your question, I would love snowmen!

    The sewing Gods have smiled on me, I am so busy, no time to think! Which is great for my budget, not so great for time management!

    Does anyone else get all the stupid stupid Ads that are now giving me a headache with their constant noise! I like ads better when they were QUIET!

    have a wonderful day ladies~
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Glad you got some sells from your craft show and new orders. It's a win win...more cash more fabricGo to www.tucows.com and search for pop up stopper. Download to your computer and you don't get all those stupid ads. If you're on a web site that you need to have them for viewing, etc. you'll get a little note saying enable pop ups for this site, you just enter yes and then you'll get them for that web site only. Every once in awhile I get one but not very often since this handy little gadget blocks them out.There is other sites that have free downloads too I just like this one because there is no fear of virus, etc. Check it out and see if it'll work for you.
    Still having trouble getting embroidery patterns to download from internet to tell my machine what to do with them and stitch them out. Any suggestions???? anybody, help SOS

    Do you have a jump drive that goes with the machine? My Embroidery machine has a jump drive and a cable both. I usually use the jump drive. I am getting so many patterns I now have to organize by subject. Does the manual help at all? sometimes I can figure out what to do by following the manual, and there is always a chance that You-Tube has a tutorial for your machine, honestly most everything you want to learn how to do has a you-tube tutorial... My favorite site for getting quilting help is the Missouri Quilt Co. I love their tutorials, so easy to follow!

    And you know you can call me! I am actually not the night owl I used to be, I often times get up early to do my computer time before I go to work. You know working from home has it's advantages~ Like sitting in my Jammies and having coffee while I take care of the paper work side of this business... Don't have to get dressed all day if I don't want to!

    Call if you have something specific i can walk you through! I am still planning on visiting you in the spring when the snow is gone! LOL, or is it Early Summer! We should have a quilting camp at your place, doesn't that sound like fun!!!!

    I still need to get moving with mine. I'm really close to being done... the main part is finished, all the applique is done (though a little crooked. We'll call it 'whimsical' lol) I just had to do a ton of ripping when I realized the pattern's measurements for the border didn't make sense, and it looked better without an inner border anyway. One side is done, I just have to rip and re-do the other side, then put together, bind, and quilt. Then it'll be on it's merry way! If I get off my butt I can have it out before Christmas!! Wouldn't that be a happy accomplishment??

    Jaba - love your table runner; I've seen those before, I even have that ruler - I needed it for a different project.

    Working on my partners runner next week - do you like sparkles?
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    I like sparkly fabric, but I don't like sparkles that can rub off, it's a waste of good sparkles. I'm having a long week. I'm glad it's friday but my week won't be over. Gotta write my final paper, and take a look at my final math test and start working on that. My classmate says it looks hard as heck. But that's probably cause she really sucks at math. I'm worried about it though. I cannot wait til I'm done with these classes. I need to get some sewing done.

    Got the pattern, got the fabric, now to FINALLY get started. Sorry to my secret pal that yours will be Jan before you get it, busy time of the year. so glad we had till Jan. to get them finished and mailed out.

    On another note, I had weight loss surgery the end of August, ans have since lost 40 lbs. I feel well enough now to have started a Hooping class.... hula hooping, at the YMCA. Not like the kind we used as kids either ...these are MUCH BIGGER but only weigh 1.2 lbs. Talking about S-O-R-E! LOL Lord willing I will be able to keep at it and it do me some good! LOL

    Nancia how is the design progress going for you? did you pick your fabrics yet?

    If I havent mentioned before go to the boom Rubys forum and its on the last two pages I think? There are posted pictures of this quilt block that was done called a Fractured quilt. The fabric was great the block came out amazing. It has 169 pieces and is 13 inches. WOW. Now that would make a wonderful table runner which I would immediately frame if your looking for fun things to do with 100 hours per item. Its really pretty and I hope you check it out!

    Sorry I've been MIA for a few days. A very dear friend was on leave and going back to Afghanistan yesterday, so I wanted to spend a little time with him while I could. He's been sick the entire 4 weeks he's been home, and was told Thursday that he has pneumonia again. They're going to probably quarantine him in Kabul until he's better, so he won't come down with something else.

    So, with him leaving yesterday morning, I spent some time on my runner. I'd been wanting to figure out a way for the back to be as useful year around as the front was for winter. Then yesterday morning, it came to me. I used the same non-wintery applique shapes I used on the front on the back, but with non-wintery fabrics. I've kept it simpler than the front, but I got all the applique done yesterday before I had to cook chicken parm meatballs for the boyfriend's work Christmas party last night. (His grad students inhaled them, so I'm not sure if they were actually good or not, lol!) Anyway, I'm trying to decide whether to cut the fabric back a touch and use 2 rows of border or just the 3-1/2" strip to match the outside border on the front. Quilting it is going to be interesting. I'm thinking of quilting the inside details of the front before I attach the back, then quilting it all together just around the outside border(s). I can't ever do anything real simple, lol. This is my first attempt at applique, and I'm happier with some parts than others. I hope my partner likes it though!

    I am going to try to finish up my runner this weekend and get it shipped west on Monday. Then I have 10 mug rugs to make, which I haven't decided on a design for yet. I've got to get them done before next Friday.

    Oh, to my partner, whoever you are.....I'll be out of the country for Christmas (12/19-12/29), so if you'll be unable to ship mine to be delivered before I leave, the pressure is off until after Christmas.

Sadly, It will prob not go out before Christmas. Been too busy with Christmas stuff. We do Christmas as a family on Christmas Eve. That way the kids can have Christmas morning at home with no pressure to leave. Usually, DH and I get bored so we make the rounds to their homes through the course of the day. Keep on keeping on!!! I just LOVE the holidays. All of them.

    YEA!!!!!!! HAPPY DANCE
    Thank you Mary for the awesome apple table topper, it's perfect for our house, computer pictures just don't do it justice - the colors are much better in person. Mary also included a couple of mug rugs - I'll post pictures later; still have lefse to fry - burned out the electrical outlet yesterday so had to stop early; thank goodness Jackie's Jay is an electrician and was able to come by this morning to replace the outlet so it's good to go.

    My topper is getting picked up today (if the mailman can trudge through the snow). WHO ORDERED 2' of snow? It got mis-delivered to Montana. Feel free to come and get it - I have things to do that involve going outside.
    Mischief Managed.
