Sukochi:

Nana, sure wish you were coming this year.

Weather forecast for Sevierville, TH. June 22 - 24: Partly cloudy temps from 86 - 88. Nice weather coming our way.

So sad, no one is excited about this retreat........................I AM!!!

 

Um, I'm uber excited!  I just picked my son up from his summer camp this morning and I stared at the lake and thought, "Yep, I'll be there next week!" and asked about his new friends, and thought, "I'll have new friends next week"... Asked about the weather and thought, "yeah, I get A/C or hot tub or lake... My Choice!" 

Sukochi, why do I have the feeling that you and I are going to be "that room" that never shuts up and goes to sleep?!  

I need to baste my quilt tomorrow.  

What type of chairs will we be using for sewing?

Ashley, just so you know, I am 63 and once my meds are in effect, a train couldn't wake me up.  That said, I think we will have such a great time, in our little corner of the world.

Okay ladies or should I say SM Mommas,

I'm making up kits for the 1) Woven Snowflake Ornament and for 2) Paper Piecing ( cute small heart wall hanging ) and I need to know how many are interested in each.  They are both short projects so if you could let me know so I can get the kits ready I sure would appreciate it. 

Just think this time next week we will all be together making new friends and renewing old friendships.  Yippee!!  Gotta go.  Let me know.

Hi Ladies.   I have a strange question so bear with me.  Does anyone have or use a serger?   I have one that I got free with my Bernina 440QE that I bought 2 years ago at the Lancaster Quilt Show.  It's never even been plugged in.  I did manage to take it out of the box..lol   I would love to bring it in and get a quick type lesson on it.  I make a lot of scrap quilts and think the serging seams would make it sturdier, especially if it's for a kid's quilt.   Any takers out there??   Thanks for considering this.

Kathy:
Also we need to make sure someone brings coffee, dish soap and paper towels.

Kathy, I will bring dish soap.  Did we find out what the dishwasher uses?  If you think of  anything else please post.   See you soon.

Sara has that special quick commercial dish washer. Perhaps we can get some when we go out on a fabric/food/fun run.

Mary, I would like to do the paper piecing one. Is it a large block? Project? How much do we owe? Can we pay you then?

Diana, I use my serger quite a bit. For finishing seams, sometimes for the binding for a little more strength. Also, for my embroidery pieces, some of the insides of purse, zippered bags,etc.  the threading is the tricky part and the tension. Mine is auto threading!!  What a treat. I actually use it more because the tension is set and I don't have to adjust it and it threads itself

The entire paper piecing project is about 12.5 x 12.5 inches.  I'll demo and teach a couple,maybe three blocks and then you can finish it up.  You don't owe me anything.  This all comes from my stash and I want to give it to you. My stash needs to be used.  I'll figure out the cost of the needles and paper.  I can't think it would be more than $2.  The snowflake project is also from things that I have around the house that I want to give away.  Too much stuff just lying around not being used.  I'll put you down for the PP piece, Michelle.

OH My Goodness!  

I finally finished basting my quilt.  I forget how much I hate doing that until I'm doing it.  I think it's like childbirth.  You're supposed to forget how bad it is so you'll do it again.

I wish I were at "learning how to paper piece" phase.  Maybe next year.  But if you're having a class, I might watch :)  I think it's probably wayyyy too tedious for my tastes!  

Can't wait to meet you all,

Ashley in TN
