I had a new career! From 1974 to 1981 I sold them 376 Word Search puzzles and almost 90 other types of puzzles.
That is fascinating! I never really gave a thought that *someone* needed to create the puzzles and that the someone would need to be paid for them! Well done for creating a job doing something that you enjoyed.
I loved that job; it was so satisfying to earn my own money by my own wits and yet continue to stay at home and ride herd on my rascals.
After I had been working for the same editor for several years I got friendly enough with her to ask about occupations of some of the other constructors. Our names were listed in the front of each magazine; one was Sister Mary Genoveva so she was obviously a nun and there was once a Reverend Noel Collins but the other names didn't reveal much.
The editor said that she could reveal one person was a prisoner serving a life sentence but the editor didn't reveal the person's gender or anything else so I merely wrote back and said I was happy that that person had access to a good library and a reliable source of income.
regarding the bleeding, I would try soaking it in very hot water & dawn, there's a good chance the red will come out. It's worked most times I've tried it (the texas flag was the one time it didn't).
That warehouse and Marshalls Dry Goods cannot even compete with Hancock Hancock building puts it in there for 4 * to be the size of Marshalls Dry Goods it is so big it is unbelievable when you see all them stacks of bolts on yes I hear that Missouri Star has really changed my friend Jill that took me up there she has been up there too and it has even changed since she's been up there yes it is something to see I mean she really knows how to decorate she's really good at it and but I wouldn't want to go back again I mean once you seen it all so you can just order it online now but you know for one time to go and say I've been there
Thank you, Dee! I will try that in the morning.
Love the seed spitting contests. I grew up on a lake and we would fill our mouths with water and see who could spit it the furthest.
no spitting, but I did have a swing set built by my engineer grandfather - very tall, welded steel post, set in concrete. the swing chains were long enough I could pull it over to the side just a bit and jump off the back porch. Then swing as high as we dared and jump off into the grass. The swinging version of the long jump. Thinking about it now makes my feet hurt. as a lone child in a neighborhood of grandmas, I spent a lot of time on that swing. Wonder how far I was jumping. At the time I thought it was pretty far.
Judy I have done the hot dawn soak more than once and saved more than one project. It may take patience and a repeat or two but keep at it.
I hope to put a narrow border on it and then keep it to 8" x 10" finished size.
That should not look too big as compared to your other blocks. Can't wait to see your finished quilt.
