    Then you have your master plan put together!

    They do make good "packing" if you have to pack china/glassware away.
    Again, beauty doesn't count, but will do the job!

    Go for it this weekend ... time to make something a little more pretty for you to keep and enjoy!

    I have a quilt top that I finished a couple years ago that I think is ugly but other people tell me it's fine - I'm going to work on (finally) getting that all quilted up and then I think I'll donate it to a new youth center that just opened up last year. It's sort of masculine and I know they need "stuff" for the boys bedrooms in particular right now, to make them feel more home-like. And what's more homey than a quilt?

    Hello there, I just got the APQS sit down George quilting machine, I got this cream for the table, you put a coat on, let dry then buff it, you can do that 3 times, I've done the first coat , buffed it off this morning and the table feels like glass after one coat..fantastic for sliding quilt around...I got mine from www.angelahoffman.com
    it was $10...the cream seemed to be such a little container, but I was surprised, it didn't take much at all for my table..area...I would think you wouldn't even notice the gaps if it slides that well...
    Hope you check it out...

    Thanks for the tip - I'd love to check it out, but the link you put in there isn't working! It goes to a "domain for sale" page.

    Do you know what the name of the product itself is called, so I can Google it directly? I've been thinking about trying the silicone sprays but this sounds like it might be better.

    Would the paste floor wax work? You put it on let dry and buff off. People on here have talked about putting a piece of painter's tape over the edge of the bobbin plate to make a quilt or piecing go over it without something getting messed up.
