I am working like a crazy woman trying to get 6 stockings constructed, a tree...

We're stitching up a bunch of stockings at the next guild sewing day (Tues), and then we'll stuff them with personal care items and present them to the local women's shelter.

Nana:

I am working like a crazy woman trying to get 6 stockings constructed, a tree skirt made and a wall hanging done before Wed.   As well as backing batches of 8 different types of cookies.   I may just keel over somewhere blubbering.

Nana you just gave me a headache just thinking about all you have to do in such a short time. Just remember to breathe every once in a while. And good luck with every thing.

Christine, this question is out of total ignorance, LOL. I looked at the pantograph and it is really cute. It said the paper is 12 inches long. Do you buy multiples or do you have to keep moving the paper?

You have a grocery store and a quilt shop. Sounds like a perfect place to live!

Does anyone here have any experience with a Ken Lund quilt frame? It is about $200 and you put it one a table. The machine moves, not the quilt. I have a machine with an 11" throat so I won't have a large quilting area, but I wouldn't be fighting with the quilt either. I ran across it by his youtube videos. I have read some reviews that were good, but am just not sure. I have emailed him to ask how much quilting space this frame would make if I ever bought a larger machine. I just can't see ever having thousands of dollars to put into a longarm setup so am looking for alternatives.

Now Joan, you know that is not ALL you can say. LOL. Do you have personal experience or are you going by something else?

I'm working on 3 mystery quilts today.  Nana's surprise, the Bonnie Hunter Easy Street, and Judy's mystery train from the quilting board.  Whew!  I'll post pics when I can find the camera in all this glory of fabric mess.  In addition I'm making a couple of quilting caddies for SS on another site. 

I just received a call from the Post Office and my brand new vintage Singer 15-91 has arrived.  So all quilting will probably be put aside when it is delivered so I can play with my new baby.   Just hope it is in as good shape as the pic showed.

Can't wait to see your pictures, BB.  I'm almost finished with the four patches in Easy Street.  I think I'm going to sew the MQ 7 squares together today also.  Then I'm going to switch over to quilting a top or two or three..... Oh why is the long weekend coming to an end?

If any one can accomplish that list of to-do's it is you Nana.  And I just know you won't be blubbering.  Just one question, are you sugaring the backing on the cookies?  LOL  You're in my T & P's for a successful week.  You rock, lady.

I'm thinking it said it was 12 feet long.  That's how long my pantograph is anyway.  :~)

LOL, you are right. I went back and looked and it is 12 feet. My eyesight is not very good and I couldn't se the " and '  very well.  12 feet make a lot more sense.

Pat, I don't like to bad mouth someone's product but, I think you would be very unhappy if you bought it. Personel experence.
