imagingermonkey FYI, I hate quilting. That is all. 1d
  •   marmitemiss I love the first 15 minutes of quilting. Thereafter...not so much! 1d
  •   sandyvandy2 What?! Noooo....call me crazy, but I love the whole process! :-) 1d
  •   epockatie @sandyvandy2 you are crazy!!! :) I try to be a checkbook quilter myself. I don't have the right machine, etc. 1d
  •   scrappyviolet I love the quilting part! I am considering sending my Cheerio out to be quilted but I'm having a hard time letting myself send it! 1d
  •   themagpiecat HIGH FIIIIVE ME TOO 1d
  •   christaquilts Are you kidding?? That the best part lol!! 1d
  •   kapikquilts Right there with us, it feels like I have a Barbie sewing machine by the time I manhandle and stuff a quilt! #firstworlproblems 1d
  •   janeteclare I detest it too. 15h

imagingermonkey Bloody hell I think I might have turned to ice. Saturday football in the winter is not fun 2d
  •   kidgiddy Hand warmers? You could buy a lot and strap one to each hand, foot, and everywhere else. 2d
  •   imagingermonkey @ooohbetty I'm positive they have. Northern winters and saturday footie matches have killed many a suburban housewife! 2d
  •   imagingermonkey @kidgiddy could I pop a couple down my knickers do you think? My bum suffered today, it was not a happy little bottom 2d
  •   katielu864 Crazy red coats!! Who puts the bulk of a season during the shittiest time of year?! Lol you're a good mom. 2d
  •   kidgiddy Bum cheeks should not be denied. 2d
  •   tuppencehapennyquilts When we were doing events I used to buy those heated 'belts' that you can get for bad backs and wear it under my suit - it's like having a little radiator strapped to you. I'll see if I can find the name of them for you. 2d
  •   dlw0656 Be worse in the Aussie summer. 2d
  •   barbara.dougherty126 Yay, finally got my Priory Square today. Love it, so pretty!! 2d

imagingermonkey The cutest ever doll kits using #priorysquare available at @coolcrafting (FYI the kit instructions they sell are so good that even a brainless idiot - such as myself - could follow them without problems) 3d

imagingermonkey Stupid effing iron, your light might be on but you're broken. I hate you. That's it, the Gods have spoken and its gin time. 3d
  •   kristastitched Damn you stupid iron. 3d
  •   retiredtoquilt Welcome to my world....iron hell! 3d
  •   saritababy Irons are always dying on me 3d
  •   runsewfun Mine died on me today too. 3d
  •   debrburton Right! Let's make an iron for quilters. It doesn't shut off (until we shut it off) , doesn't spit no matter what you do and last for more than 6 months. 3d
  •   themagpiecat I want to buy debrburton's iron. I've got a travel one from Boots that sits by my machine and it's done good service but every so often it goes nuts and burns the shit out of everything. 3d

imagingermonkey I swear this is organised and not just chaos (on a side note - jeez, I'm being productive today, clearly I had a good breakfast, or something) fabrics are cuckoos calling from @dashwoodstudio btw. @pinkcastlefabrics has it in the US. Go buy it. 3d

imagingermonkey Whose genius idea was it to spend the day trimming 2.5" half square triangles? 3d
  •   bsreid44 I may be the odd one out on this one, but I like squaring up my HST because then I know the rest of my piecing is going to be perfect and fast 3d
  •   itzbyo @bsreid44 what a great way to look at it, you are so right! I'm definitely a member of the hate club but hopefully your philosophy will change that. I do love the humble little HST...so versatile 3d
  •   strongstitches @imagingermonkey, are you pressing them before trimming? 3d
  •   strongstitches Oops. I mean are you pressing them open before trimming? 3d
  •   imagingermonkey @bsreid44 I secretly like it too. Sssh 3d
  •   strongstitches @imagingermonkey. Check out @diaryofaquilter's tutorial for Half-square Triangle Short Cuts. It uses the ruler you have pictured and cuts your trimming time in half (no pun intended ). It's brilliant! 3d
  •   diaryofaquilter Yes! I love that ruler. Line up the measurement you want them squared to directly on the seam (before you open them up) and just square two sides. You still have to trim the corner tags, but still saves loads of time. (Maybe you already know this and I'm just yammering on for no reason...) 3d
