I know it's too late to make these this Christmas but I wanted to share this site and tutorial. It's never too "early" to start for next year's holiday. Teresa made these cute trees and was nice enough to share. Softie Tree
Before you begin the movie, please turn off the sidebar player. Thank you!
Happy Holidays everyone!
The Wackies have so much to be thankful for......with all our families and friends and all of our blogging buddies. This year has flown by and was filled with great activities, projects, swaps, purchases, some triumphs and a few losses.
I wanted to take a moment to remember our girlfriend, Jerri who passed away nine months ago. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her or laugh at something she said or did. Jerri was such a large part of my life. She was the sister I never had, the best friend and traveling buddy and she gave great advice, too. Jerri was the life of the party and I'm so blessed to have known her.
Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away. It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a little joy.
Kathy found this great article about thread problems on Stitch Fun so we wanted to share it with everyone. With all the new threads out there, pre-wound bobbins, not to mention needles with all their different qualities, it can get very confusing as to what is going on inside our machines and bobbin area. We hope this little article helps.
Nancy over at "With Thread In Hand" has a great tutorial on a STAR. I've been thinking about making this particular star but the instructions were always confusing but Nancy has ironed out all the glitches and done a great job of tell everyone what not to do.
Pop over to her blog and read all about it. You might mention that the WACKIES sent you there....just for fun!
It's been awhile since the "Wackies" have posted. We hope that all is well and that your spring or fall, depending on which part of the world you're in, is treating you with kindness.
This post is to alert you to one of our Virtual Wacky-Wannabees, Cindy, who has a great embroidery technique that you really need to check out. It's so simple and amazing, you'll wonder why you didn't think of it. So hop on over to Cindy's blog and take a look!
Today the quilting world lost a prolific and talented quilter. Our dear Wacky Pac Sista, Jerri, lost her battle with cancer. She was such a 'trooper' and defied the odds so many times. She passed peacefully in her sleep at approximately 5 a.m. this morning.
Jerri was the life of the party. She was a fine Christian woman who loved the Lord. She also loved life, loved her family and friends and loved quilting. She was always just a phone call away....she had "Peeps" always available to help in any situation.
Jerri leaves behind a wonderful husband, Rex, who was a true angel. He never left her side. A son and daughter-in-law and two beautiful little granddaughters. She also leaves a whole host of friends who will miss her dearly.
My friend, I'll be seeing you on the other side one day. Put in a 'good word' for me with the Big Guy and tell my Mama I said I miss and love her.
I can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts you will make in Heaven. May you walk the golden streets of Heaven with your family and friends who have gone before you. May you never suffer again and always continue that wonderful laugh and cheerful nature. I will miss you, but I will never forget you. I love you my friend. May you rest in peace.
Then you need to go here! Fresh Modern Quilts is displaying some beautiful and inspirational quilts on their Flikr group. I have 'drooled' all over my laptop!!! LOL! Go take a look and get inspired like I did.
