    Has anyone seen the new Kmart commercial? I think it's for mother's day. The helper in a box. It's a verrrrrry bad monkey that no one would want.

    Have fun.
    What's the big deal about having stitch count on your machine? I noticed it has such a feature on mine.

    My zip totals 11 no matter how you slice it or I suppose if you follow Krystyna math one could argue it is 2.

    I think if you ever try to sell it, it tells just how much it has been used. Like mileage on a car. There may be other reasons as well. When someone lists their machine as slightly used, the stitch count tells the truth. Kinda like the grandmother who only drives their car to church on Sunday.

    It lets you know how much wear your machine has had. Unless, you mean the stitch count on a design. That's for density, etc.

    OK. I really need to be locked up. We went to an estate sale today, as I mentioned, and among other things, I picked up what turned out to be two meat grinders. My son, who is a sous chef, was looking for ours (my mother's) a while ago but I told him it bit the dust in the flood. So ... when I saw these I grabbed them. We brought them over to his restaurant so he could run them through the dishwasher to sanitize them. When we pulled up ... there was a group of people outside going through bins of stuff and tossing it into the dumpster. What they were tossing was TONS of fabric. Turns out they were a theatre group. Well, the stuff was all on top and clean so DH and I went to town and filled the back seat of my car. I guess they had just done a production of Brigadoon because it was all PLAID! So ... back home, I'm going through the fabric, folding, etc. and I realize that a good bunch of it is .... are you ready? ... not quilts ... but .... KILTS!!!!! Well, I don't want them, but I wonder if anyone else here does.

    No it isn't you, Krystyna! Sorry....I have a little thing in my stash that I am just waiting to send you if I ever get your name though...

    Send those kilts to our friend in Scotland or wash them in hot water and make something out of felted wool!??!

    Carol, that stitch count keeps you honest if you ever intend to sell it.

    SP, I have your package ready to go but am waiting to get addresses for the FQ swap so I will just have to make one trip to the Post Office...color me LAZY!

    K - my daughter loves all things Irish and she had a bag full of kilts stored here (she is in college in RI) - I was sick of looking at them so I asked her if she minded if I made something with them. I cut them all up and made her a tied quilt for Christmas - I even sewed the buttons and a buckle on it. Turned out really cute. Just an idea

    They're not real kilts - just costumes. I need to figure out what the fabric is. Not wool. I think a cotton/poly mix. Hmmmmm. Maybe my SP loves kilts and just doesn't know it!!!

    Hope you enjoy your package this month. I will be shipping it out on Monday!!!

    My package is started but will have to wait for the item you wanted. Couldn't find it at quilt shops so ordered it on line and is suppose to be here in 3-5 business days. Hope they are true to their word.
    SP you have pets.

    Pal, your package is ready for the mail, first thing Monday morning. I'm so envious. You have 20 hours of sunlight in the summer! I think I just told you too much.
