Me too,, I onlye show page 1, then I have to scroll down to page 256.. yet there appears to be 261 pages..

Also I am getting some crazy cryptic black writing at the top every time I click into a page.. I thought it was just me having that issue.

Been having the same problem and I just told Brian on a different thread before I came to this one. Hopefully itís an easy fix. I thought it was just me. I should have said something earlier.

I thought it was just me too. My latest UFO done. It's another little quilt. My little quilt group isn't meeting now due to the virus but I'm keeping up with the projects for this year.

speaking of mini quiltie things,, I puttered in my sewing room yesterday and made these two..

just wanted to use up some scraps..

(I somehow messed up row 5(top to bottom),, but again, just using up scraps...
I have not mastered lining things up perfect,,, I spray starched my strips of fabric 1st before cutting, thinking that would help.. nope,, I am just not good at joining pieces,, but I have fun none the less...

Having fun with it is the important part. I have many chopped off points in my quilts but they keep us just as warm as if they're perfect.
Better watch out -- making mini quilts is highly addictive.

I can't find the mistake -- looks good to me

I don't see the mess up Grace - and if you ever figure out how to line everything up correctly please let me know LOL!! I sure can't do it either.

Here's a couple things I finished up the other day




(Notice some points touch the edge and some don't LOL!!)

I was gifted some "scraps" that I think of as treasures and I've been laying them out seeing what I can come up with. There's a bunch of little squares. Does anyone have a suggested website that has free patterns for quilting? I'd like to try some mini designs and maybe turn them into mug rugs or the top of an apron or .... any ideas or past projects you've done?

Beautiful quilt Judith!

Grace, love your patriotic quilts. I donít see any mistakes either. I am working on some 4th of July crochet right now. We must be getting ready for summer lol!

Heather, your stars are pretty! It looks like on our gingerbread man one that you planned to have those points not touch. I actually like it that way.

Crazy me ordered another tie blanket. This time itís a kit. Already the correct size and has lines where you are supposed to cut. Iím excited for it. Itís supposed to be here Friday. Hopefully I finish it in a timely matter so it wonít become a UFO lol

I finished quilting and binding the guild mystery quilt today. Now to take out another unfinished top and start on it. Somehow two boxes of my basting pins have vanished. I'e only ever kept them in one place and they are not there. I think the Borrowers have visited.

I've been busy making these packets of 10 pieces of fabric and a pattern for the ladies in our church to make masks for our members and others. I love cutting fabric....and touching it....and feeling it....and smelling it......okay, I love fabric.

I am getting page 1, too, but only on this page. Is it too large? maybe change the page every quarter or something?

Sherone, you are so sweet to do that for others.

Linda, maybe itís tired from everyone using it during this time while they stay home lol!

Started a new project for a dear friend. Itís working up quickly so hopefully I'll have it completed soon.

We brought a badly injured kitty home from the hospital yesterday. He was to be kept calm and isolated for two weeks, so he will be in the sewing room helping me quilt a double size quilt.

The little quilts are awesome. I never call a mistake a mistake. I call them design elements!!!!! I haven't been around for a while do to some family drama, but am trying to get back to normal, whatever that is. LOL With the Stay at Home Order in my state I have been working on some UFO's and projects that have been put off. I purged my library and ended up donating over 200 books. Now I have some room on the shelves. I have also been typing in my recipes to the computer. Only have about 50 more to do and that UFO will be done.

Back when my mother passed away my sister and I were cleaning out her house and getting it ready to sell. Well, my sister had gotten her a sweatshirt she wore all the time. It had quite a few stains on it and my sister was crying as she threw it in the trash. When she wasn't looking I plucked it out of the trash. Not knowing what I would do with it I just knew it meant alot to my sister. Well, I came up with an idea for the sweatshirt:



Everyone can use a good sized tote.

Also, my niece is a nurse so I made her some scrub hats: here are 2 of the 5 I made her:




A few years ago my best friend picked me up a piece of driftwood on one of her travels. Here is what I made of it. Finished it this morning.



Well, that's all for now. Glad to be back

Theresa -- What a wonderful gift for your sister and the hats for your niece are pretty enough to wear anywhere.
I have a friend who uses driftwood as hangers for her little art quilts. Driftwood is just so artsy.
