Introducing my first grandbaby--she decided to make her appearance two weeks early. It truly is like they say--my heart grew another chamber just for her! Thanks to all who made such nice comments about the quilt I had made her--I haven't been able to
I've only been a member since right after Christmas, and I just went over 2000 flowers. Thanks! Does this mean I post too much? Don't want to be a pest
We lost our son in law this week to terminal liver failure. He and our oldest daughter had been married less than a year. He hid his illness from her with lies until the last two months when it grew to be too hard to hide. His illness was caused from
okay, I guess I'm not very smart. I see all these flowers by people's names, and the count by my name is growing too, but what does it mean? Thanks in advance for answering this ignorant person's question.
Totally random question: Smells are on my mind today (I have an officemate who reeks of cigarette smoke and overdoses on cheap perfume to cover it up--it's killing me!) and I began to wonder--what is the best smell in the world? I'm thinking--a little
I've been trying to find the words to tell my story. My youngest daughter is getting a divorce. That's not the hard part. The hard part is saying that she has been emotionally neglected and abused for the last few years and didn't want us to know.
I finally finished embroidering the project I didn't really want to do. They are pageant sashes for our local annual peach festival. They weren't hard, but sure took a lot of stabilizer.
when I first bought my machine, the dealer told me that she never hooped fabric anymore--just the stabilizer. Then, she marks the center lines like crosshairs on both the stabilizer and fabric, and uses pins or spray adhesive to match them and keep them
My kids are grown, and we don't have any grandchildren (yet) but I wanted to share something both my daughters have said that they want to do when they do have kids--instead of buying a lot of gifts, they want to do this: 4 gifts--one you like, one you
I have an ethical question: If I bought a cd of a set of designs, and opened the case and looked at the designs on my computer, but never saved or sewed the designs, is it ok to pass it on to someone else? Or is this a violation of copyright somehow? I
My first time to use an embossed font (design from DBC) Wow, it has a lot of stitches. Almost 18,000. I did two bath towels, and two hand towels for a colleague's wedding.
This past week has been awful, with both my adult daughters facing crises of one form or another. It sure is hard when your babies have grownup problems. Here is my beautiful red-headed almost-two granddaughter, which helps restore my joy. Maybe her s
I finally did it. After years of owning the pattern, I finally make the Peppermint Swirl dress for my three year old granddaughter. Fabric came from Joann's. I made bias tape for the hem, and sewed it on the front side. I hope she likes it.
I don't know how many of you Cuties suffer with depression, but today it is really kicking my tail. I have chronic daily migraine and neuropathy in my legs which causes great pain when walking. I have't felt like sewing or embroidery in weeks. I try
I am going to whine a bit, so I'm sorry in advance. Since I've been retired to try to regain my health, I only manage to even turn my machine on about once every week or so. I've been diagnosed with chronic daily migraine, which worsens with movement
