    Libster I am going out rarely, don’t want to get anyone else sick. I called to wish my dd happy Birthday, she said Mom are you sick again? Again no, still. She couldn’t believe it.

    Good news! Janice has my package! Now I'm looking forward to the return, and to sewing for you all!

    I watched a PBS special about the common cold some years ago. They did experiments trying to get people sick, well, sort of, not trying, but to see what happened, and what they discovered was interesting.

    A sick person covered her mouth, coughed into her hand, then used a public pay telephone, holding the receiver with her virus covered hand. (public pay telephone? Yes, the show was several years ago. lol) The next people to use the phone were tracked. The ones who didn't touch their nose and later washed their hands, stayed well. The ones who touched their nose before washing their hands got sick. The experiment was repeated several different ways, with different contaminated sources. People who touched their nose got sick, and those who didn't touch their nose didn't get sick.

    Another experiment was a sick person kissing a well person. The contact with the mouth did not make the well person get sick.

    I started never touching my nose when in public places. I carry tissues and a hankie all the time to be sure my fingers never go near my nose. I'm rarely sick. I go for years never missing a day of work. I told my sons not to touch their noses. Most of the time they remember. The grandchildren are too young to stop their little hands every time, and they get sick. But my sons and their wives don't get sick very often-- even when they have a houseful of drippy-nosed, coughing kids.

    Givio, love your fabrics! I need a bit of clarification. You included a small solid in the packet I pulled in addition to your F8 but your instructions do not actually address it. You request multi-colored prints so is the solid a color suggestion or should it be used in the block in addition to prints? Help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Janice and all,
    I've sent an approximately 6.5" square of solid fabric along with the brown F8. Yes, I'd like you to use the solid in addition to a multi-colored print if you can. If your pattern requires a certain number of pieces in a certain fabric, and you cannot accommodate the size of the solid fabric I've sent, I'm perfectly fine with you adding a solid or blender from your stash in order to use the solid fabric I sent. For example, if you need to cut 8 pieces of the solid fabric and you don't have enough because the 8 pieces are larger than the 6.5" square, you could cut 2 of a different fabric from your stash and 6 of the 6.5" solid fabric. I hope everyone will read this post as my request was written not clearly, also hope this answers the question. :-)

    Today I'm sewing a binding on a quilt that I got back from a woman who longarm quilted it for me. I found a pin sticking out in the middle of it! The large round head is in the middle of the batting! I have to rip out a seam on the top in order to remove it! I don't want to pay so much money to have such a problem! Did that ever happen to you?

    SIDE SWAP?

    Hello hummingbirds I am moved and set up well enough to finally start sewing again.
    I just sent PM's to those that said they would swap with me. Traveling Grandma, MJP, Kass, Mariposa, Terri and Libster. I'll be sending my F8's to you as soon as I get your addresses. If anyone else would like to sideswap with me just let me know.

    Thanks,
    Billi

    Why would a longarmer need to pin your quilt in the middle? You should definitely tell her about it so she can be more careful next time. Wonder how she missed it while longarming?

    So sorry to hear that, Bootsy... hope it's only a minor problem.

    Not so fast to rip!

    When this happens to me, I feel to find the glass or plastic head and hit it with a hammer. The pin slides right out with no ripping. Of course, you'll have to consider whether this is appropriate depending on who will be using it!

    AHHH! Too fast! lol What a great idea! Yes, I could have tried that. I'm pretty sure that it's not a glass head pin that I could smash though. But the quilt is for me, so I could have left the head in if I could have figured out how to get the head off the metal pin. I thought of leaving the head in, but didn't have an idea of how to do it. Smashing works with plastic too? Great tip! Thanks for sharing it. I took out the nearest seam, and hand stitched it back together. The binding is on, and the quilt is in the washing machine as I type. I hope to get a picture of it outdoors this weekend.

    Bootsy, I'm lucky to have a husband that is a repair genius. I hope you get your machine working soon! I don't like to be without one, so I have a couple spares. I got a great old workhorse Singer from Goodwill for only $8 and it was in an oak cabinet. :-)

    Glad you got it fixed. Was it a pin you had left? I have never used a long arm quilter so not sure of their procedure.

    No, it's not one of my pins. Not that my pins are distinctive, but I see it's different than what I've got. I ironed it before I gave it to her and I think I would have noticed if I left one in. Maybe it just fell on the batting before she put on the top, like if she was moving other projects around above it, or laying things there for a bit while organizing.

    Ive found a couple of curved needle?pins? in a couple of quilts ive gotten from my quilter. Not sure if a needle she uses or if shes had to pin something. Ive been lucky enough to be able to pull them out with no ripping. About had a heart attack just now. I got my pay pal notice..holy cow I had NO idea I had bought that much fabric on line! It was worth it indeed but when you add it up its a lot more than I realized!! I think I might have a mental illness when it comes to fabric because I have more than enough to be able to match anything I need but I always find something better.. LOL I wonder what they call this illness??

    When I worked altering wedding gowns, we would keep pliers by our machines and use them to crush beading where we had to take in a seam. It was so much easier than trying to remove the beads any other way. There was something satisfying about crushing the beads too. Just 'pop, pop, pop' and then brush away the dust. Pliers and razor blades were two of the big tools of the trade! LOL.

    Joan, I think we all have a touch of that illness. We just love fabric too much!

    Givio, there is no guarantee we will all look back at this post. In fact, it probably won’t happen. However, if you rework your request, make it concise and clear, (“please use the solid in your block”), email it and I’ll print it and replace your request note for you. But it must be short. Couple of lines please. Any longer and you lose your audience.

    LOL Kass, thats a good one! after thinking I wouldnt order fabric again I could not find a match to some patriotic fabric that I needed. Had dark blue fabric with white stars, light blue stars, red stars but none of them matched so I had to order some white fabric with blue stars. Glad there isnt a quilting store in Boonville and too cold to drive to Columbia and thank heavens for Amazon Prime!!
