OK, I used to have some cool slide shows of my ATC swaps. These have vanished, too. Where do these things go???
Not only do I rarely post, and even more rarely upload photos, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to edit without loosing everything. I could swear there used to be an edit button next to everything, and now I cannot see one anywhere. And what’s the difference between a tag and a category? Could someone loan me a twelve year old so I can figure this out?
I have no idea what happened to the earlier posts for this month; they seem to have vanished in the night. Anyway, Rich Mountain Community College in Mena, ARkansas, hosts my quilting and sewing classes.

My Facebook page was hacked by some spammers, and Facebook did nothing to help me get rid of them, so I took down my page. Anyone that wants the free collage sheets can have them anyway.
Like last year, I have been quilting like crazy. In addition to my personal projects, I have been teaching machine patchwork and quilting at Rich Mountain Community College, and I also took two training classes in sewing machine repair from the well known OSMG Ray White. So now, I repair vintage sewing machines as well as teach quilting on these very same machines. If I ever slow down enough to take some photos, I will post pics of the machines and quilting.
In the last year, I have been quilting with a passion. I set a goal for 2010 to complete 12 new quilts and to finish some of my UFO’s.
I did finish one UFO, a large log cabin scrappy quilt. I also resurrected a quilt that I started back in the 80′s, and had become bored with it. It was loaded with mistakes, which I elected to leave in. I joined the rows, sandwiched the layers, and in a moment of complete insanity, decided to hand quilt it. It’s about half done. Perhaps it will be completed next year.
I made 8 or 9 tops (one is still needing its borders), and completed one quilt. It was as large pink and purple sampler that I machine quilted on my Featherweight and gifted to my DH’s cousin and his new bride.
Next year’s goal is to finish these quilts and make 3 more.
