Despite a little bit of dificulty getting it into the silver part the rest was exceptionally easy AND it really really worked. In like 10 minutes I had all the bias trim I needed. I had read just as many negative comments as positive so it was a 50/50 chance I would like it. I think it really is important the type of fabric you put into it. I have seen some reviews where the fabric didnt look like it would hold a crease very well.
So I am giving it an A+.
Littla As room is starting to really come together.Ü

I have only 8 slots open for the Mystery Quilt! I was so happy to see how fast those first slots went! Thank you for playing with me ladies! For those of you that have signed up so far your initial info will go out in the mail tomorrow.Ü I will wait until I know you have received your info before I go shopping for myself.This is going to be so much fun!!!!
Question. I am wanting to be very very careful about the copy right issues. The kit was purchased for a certain amount of people and I will abide by that. What I am looking for here is an opinion on what you think. I am wondering if you feel ok with me emailing your info to you instead of mailing. I will at that point destroy the info so that it is used. If you would prefer a hard copy I am ok with that also.Its up to each of you.
I accidently clicked on this picture to load and couldnt get it back off.Lol. SO here it is again! A wonderful box of goodies sent to me in the garden swap.
THIS was the pictureI was trying to upload.Lol. He was diggin the straw!

Its called Mystery on Daffodil Hill. Quilt size 56x56. I purchased this to do as a fun mystery on my blog. I have 11 spots open. I purchased this for 12 people so dont worry that I am sharing patterns that I shouldnt. ( iknow you wouldnt think that but I just needed it to be clear). So I am going to take sign ups for 11 more people.
Here are the rules if you wish to play. I am going to keep it open until Sept 15th OR until the 11 spots are taken. Which ever comes first. There are 7 clues to the Mystery quilt. IF you would like to play send me an email with your snail mail and email. I will send you your supply list to get started. On Sept 15th I will send out the first clue by mail. You may take as long or as short as you would like. BUT before you get the next clue you must email me with a picture of the last step completed and then and only then will I send the next clue.
If this works out as well as I am hoping there are other mysteries I would like to do. Since I left all my quilter buddies in Alaska I am hoping some will want to play with me. I PROMISE (and yes Jody I mean it) that I WILL NOT peek until its time and I will post my pictures right along with yours.
NOW on to the pictures. Jan this ones for you.Ü. A close up of my boot.Lol. Dont ya LOVE it! Yes I had to get proof. Notice the water is still um a shady brown color? YUCK

We have never had to trim anything before. I suggested to Wonderful Hubby that we get a landscaper in but he acted like that was a slap to his manhood. So he bought himself some clippers. Pretty good job for a first time. Just some trimming on the first then tomorrow he can do the second.

I now have my sense of humor back but its fragile!
I would LOVE to have been a fly on the wall. The idiot salesman really tried to pull one over on hubby. My wonderful hubby tho was quick on his feet. He put up with it for only so long then he put his foot down. He told him that the bottom line was that if mama aint happy aint NO body happy and we would just take our business elsewhere.
Amazingly they found "my" Killian in colorado and they are bringing it to him. He isn't even going to have to pay for a hotel room.
I would rather have him home tonight like he was going to be but that isn't going to happen.

The hot tub we cant figure out how to drain! My kiddos are very grumbly about this. But I wont pay to have the guy come out until the house is officially mine. I already have had the water softener serviced and phone lines repaired. This can wait. You would think that it was the end of the world tho!
