    I had to laugh about your invisible thread Your husband is right though........can't be found

    Don't you like it, finding stuff you totally forgot about? That way it's new and unexpected. Keep doing that and in 10 years you'll be surprised what you accumulated

    Oh dear, I just ordered solids for the next Gypsy Wife.......I guess I'm beyond any anonymous program
    Remember a quilt I posted some time ago? The one in blues/greens/yellows/oranges? That's the one I ordered fabrics for. I do have enough Christmas fabrics for another GW.......Someone please stop me!!!!!

    Intervention Group Therapy scheduled for 2pm today. However, participants will likely not be much help since we all love doing the same thing. As the leader, I'll likely encourage you to grab on ad run with inspiration so I'll be no help either...lol...

    10'years will fly by, Macybaby. In the meantime, squeeze in every minute of the joy of quilting you can.

    On on a hopeful note, buyers came yesterday and they are returning tomorrow to look again. Plus, another buyer is interested and wants to offer so I may have a bidding war on my hands. So exciting. Now, if the weather will cooperate for moving, I'm golden... Happy thoughts requested....I'm so ready to settle and sew..

    Holy, moly, you just had to show me that link today? When I was so proud of myself, because I made my first 3" block last night.

    Sorry about your embroidery machine. I finally broke down and brought 4 of mine to the doctor.

    My embroidery machine just went to hospital. I guess it won't be back in time to make all the Christmas stuff I was planning to do.

    So now I have Bakers Dozen and LTG patterns to work on after I get a some quilt tops quilted and bound.

    Never did find the thread. I know the last time I used it and think I put in in the tote with some other leftover stuff from that quilt instead of putting it back where it belongs. Now to find that tote!

    I found several other things that I'd forgot I'd bought too, like my fabric paint . I really need to quit buying things unless I am ready to use them now. Otherwise I buy them, they are in my way so I put them somewhere and then forget all about them.

    I've got 10 years to retirement, but I can't help thinking how nice it's going to be to have lots more time for playing!
    I sew with invisible bobbin thread all the time!!!! Somehow or other, I thought retirement would give me lots more time for playing. I seem to be busier than when I worked full time.

Have you ever made small circles like this? I think the diamond quilt is English Paper Pieced. They are truly wonderful...thanks for sharing! Now I have the itch to make a mini!

    WANNABE--I would be proud of your 3" block! The only way these folks got to the point they are is by perfecting the 3" block and then getting smaller. Don't let this discourage you. The first 3/4" 9P I made was to see if I could use such small pieces. It was wonky, but I proved to myself that I could and it's started me on a fantastic fun journey.

    Sorry to hear of the sick machines. This reminded me that my annual servicing is next month for my machines.

    Those mini's are adorable. I still have a mini kit that is more in line of what OK does. Tiny piecing that I'm still a bit intimidated to start.

    Wannabee...OK is the one who encouraged me to just go for it. She needs to do a special class for us on mini's..lol!!

    Cindyb....no truer words ever said about retirement. I went from fulltime therapist to just 2 days a week and I still run out of time each week. Now, I'm just a few hours a week soon to be done with that for a bit until I get settled. I may not continue and just do volunteer counseling. We'll see

    I'm almost sure - almost - I'm going to replace the center of the Bakers Dozen. Since I made it I've been staring at it, wondering if I like what I did or not. So I guess it's time to make a decision.

    My embroidery machine isn't back, didn't hear from the shop either.

    just heard from the doctor, 3 out of 4 machines can be picked up tomorrow. He needs to keep the Bernina 930 and hasn't had a chance to check it out yet. My baby!

    Anael, perfect timing on picking up your 930. At least your embroidery machine got a nice little spa getaway. Hopefully she will be home soon.

    Wannabee, that is great news. 3 out 4!! Yahoo. Hopefully your 4th will be home soon.

    Thanks Judith, I hope so too without getting too expensive. It's not the right time of the year for a machine to break down

    Yea.... We feel helpless without our babies..lol!

    I like Girl Next Door, too... I think Wannabee is making that one or is planning to start it soon. So cute...

    Anyone in US ever buy from a shop in Germany before? There is a pattern I want but a bit nervous to buy...it is a paper pattern so it's not a download, which is much easier...

    Never bought anything online outside of the US. Girl next Door is about number 10 on my list. Sometime next year I hope. Slowly accumulating fabric. Got the Singer 185, 221 and 503 back today. Doctor didn't have a chance to even look at the Bernina yet. I've been using the Brother CS6000i, I bought a couple of years ago. I hate it. Sews fine , no problems. But... I can lift it with my pinkie.

    I haven't Teen. I wanted to but it was a download so I didn't.......hahaha. No really, I wanted to make a hoodie but not download a zillion parts and tape them together so that's why. If it were a paper pattern I would have.

    Wannabee, I had a machine like your Brother. I hated it every second I owned it. I had to chase it every time I used it.
