May e-Newsletter

Hi There!

*wiping her hands*

I've finally caught up with my e-Newsletter sharing!  *grin*

Here's the latest one:


Hi Everyone!

This is taken from the WesTide magazine:

“The 3rd annual Quilt Show, Sale & Meal will be held on Saturday, May 5th at the Wirral Community Hall (6772 Rte 101 Wirral), sponsored by the Wirral Hospital and Community Aid Group.

NOTE:    To get to Wirral, you drive to Welsford. Turn at the Irving garage and head towards Fredericton…. On the old road.  Wirral is just past Clarendon.

The Kingston Farmer’s Market opens up again for the season…..  May 5th -  this Saturday, as well.

Here’s their FaceBook page:

There’s supposed to be live entertainment, plenty to eat, homemade soaps…. Hopefully lots of crafty items.

A fun time for market goers, I’m surell!

I can’t remember if I shared this recipe with you, before, but here’s a great recipe to remove pencil lines from your quilt top:

1/4 cup water
3/4 cup rubbing alcohol
7-8 drops of Palmolive liquid detergent

Mix and apply with a toothbrush

Apparently, no other liquid detergent will work as well – you truly DO need to use Palmolive.

Gilbert and I safely and easily removed the pencil marks from one of my quilts… no problem.

A quilter is:

Someone who assiduously clips coupons and hunts for bargains at the Supermarket, but buys untold yards of fabric, regardless of price.

Someone who pays to have her ironing done, but thinks nothing of standing for hours pressing twenty yards of fabric for a quilt.

Someone who sees life through the eye of a needle, and that is a very special thing.

Someone who is bored silly hearing about other people's dumb hobbies, such as sky-diving, motor cycling or stamp collecting, but constantly fascinates
everyone she comes in contact with by sharing her quilts and quilting experiences.

Someone who has not been able to balance her check book since March 1979, but can figure the yardage requirements for a Log Cabin Quilt and have just
enough left over for a pin cushion.

Someone who enjoys sewing a quilt, but hides the mending until the garments are either outgrown or out of style.

Someone who cannot see cobwebs hanging from the ceiling, dust balls under the bed or a sink full of dirty dishes, but can thread a size 10 needle in
the dark.

Have you ever considered doing mitered borders on your quilt?

NOTE:  The video hit a “burp” towards the end…. But I was still able to figure out the end.

If some of you have received a weird email from me with just a link…. PLEASE do NOT open it!!!   My email has been hacked and I “think” I’ve fixed it….  And please accept my apologies.

With this note, I’ll finish my e-Newsletter with a …..

Have a very, VERY Happy Mother’s Day!!!

Rosa and Gilbert

At the beginning of each month (or there abouts), I will be sending you an e-Newsletter.  If you no longer wish to receive it, please reply to this message and ask to be removed from the list. I will gladly remove your name.
