My husband had been in hospice for the past 4 months. He passed quietly at home last week. Needless to say, I am heart broken. I think there are some things in life that one just has to live through in spite of how horrible it is. Knowing that does not ma
I was thinking about getting a lamp to light up the stitching area of my machine. It attaches to the sewing machine with a magnet. Does anyone know if the magnet would disrupt the cumputer in the machine?
There are a lot of things that I find misleading in advertising, but this morning I found kitchen towels for "sale" and the cost of shipping was the exact same as what the towels costs no matter how many you buy. Nowadays, I always check shipping as wel
When I make dinner, I heat the plates, but they cool very fast so the food doesn't keep warm very long. Does anyone have dinnerware that holds the heat well? Or has anyone made a "plate cozy" and does that work better?
I'm still around but with my husband's problems I hardly have time to do much. He's in hospice and I have a caretaker come each day which gives me time to go shopping or what ever else I need to do. I have a hospital bed in my living room so he can wat
I saw "sebsews" post and thought it'd be nice to share how long we've known our best friend. They say that the friends you make in high school are the ones who stick with you through life...sort of like husbands! I've known my best friend for
I have been MIA off and on due to my husband's declining health. He's 93 now and can barely get up off his chair. He gets around slowly using his walker. A daily home nurse comes to bandage his wounds on his legs from cellulitis. Seems like every time I
Sometimes I think I'm silly that I get incredibly attached to my sewing machines. My favorite machine to use for quilting died. Apparently its circuit board failed and I can't get a replacement for them. It was too old. So, I went on Ebay and bought a r
Honestly, I must be the most idiotic person on Earth at times. I bougt a $650 sewing machine on EBay. It arrived and it doesn't work. I've been in contact with the seller to no avail...apparently sellers don't have to take back something that has been
I'm trying to decide on the borders now. It is hard for me to quilt for others. Ususally, I make a quilt and then decide who gets it. Making a quilt just for one person is hard for me.
My pins need replacing! I hadn't made a quilt for a long time when I discovered that my pins are dull. What pins are sharpest? or what brand do you like best?
I washed a quilt and saw that one place in it color was transferred to the fabic it layed on after the wash cycle. Actually, I can't tell if the color was trasferred or crocked. It's not heavily stained, more like a noticeable shadow. If the col
I've been noticing that some sites have changed their freebies to a "free club" with a membership that costs money to join. While I can understand some reasons for why they have chosen to do this, it has its down side for me. Free designs take me to si
I must be one of the most clueless people who roam the Earth. I just figured out that pre cuts are cut at the factory...not in some lonely person's spare bedroom. I figured this out after I bought 4 packages of the same fabric. Good thing I love this pac
Does anyone know what that rubber like stuff that you put on the back of hooked rugs is called? Or any rug that you don't want slipping around.
