Thanks for all the help and support on my machine quilting adventure. I'm wondering if the sandwiching part isn't my biggest problem. Any suggestions there?
Recently I got my first comment from outside the quilting world. And it was necessary for me to delete it. I was puzzled but got to thinking about it and realized it was in response to the posting where I mentioned by name the place I live 53 years ago. Maybe not but makes me wonder. Anyway I'm not going to type the name of that city again.
I spent most of today helping my friend with her life stories. And I have many hours more typing to do for her yet.
I've been reading your blogs. So many and so interesting. I see where some people have been asking the advantages and disadvantages to quilt blogging. Last winter I was alone in FL and unable to walk much at all due to a bum knee. I found the maverick site and began reading. Quickly I started a blog of my own. Dear Finn responded and encouraged me, over and over. Then my DBin L became critically ill, Kipper had a growth that appeared cancerous and I had to have knee surgery. I came back to Michigan twice, DBin L improved, had Kipper's surgery (not cancerous) and mine (partial knee replacement). Finally long rehab on the knee (now wearing a brace). Advantage is quilt blogland helped get me though all this. Disadvantage - none. Some say it takes time from their quilting work but it just inspired me to do more. Thanks!!
