Becky at HQ's home office in Utah just sent me an email telling me the part number I needed to order (and the price and telephone number to call).  Annie answered the phone at HQ's home office promptly and gave me the cost of shipping, took my credit card information and informed me the light would be shipped on Tuesday.

So now I will happily work on those red and neutrals HST blocks while I wait for my new laser light to arrive.

It is so pleasant to work with a company that doesn't use automated telephone trees ... none of that "press one, press two, press three" monkey business ...

I worked on several pending projects today - mended DH's torn jeans (somehow the seam below the zipper unraveled).  Also basted the hem on the bridesmaid's dress.  And sewed on the binding on my applique quilt that Ami quilted.  Tomorrow I'll work on hand sewing it down - Geesh, I bet it's been at least 5 years since I hand sewed a binding.

Well, that would be nice, wouldn't it?  Highly unlikely, but nice.

Oh no!  I can imagine your frustration!  It's so annoying when you are expecting things to go smoothly and then they don't.  Then, to top it off you have trouble getting the help you need.  YES, it is good you have a couple of things to work on while you wait.

You never know!  I have 2 quilters that I know that will do a few charity quilts!  I use them regularly, so they are willing to do a charity now and again, when they like the charity.  I try to chose the quilts that really deserve the long armers talents!

I know, that would be great wouldn't it?

Good Morning Lynne,

That would be so special to watch. I can only imagine. I was looking at the beautiful quilt tops that you posted this week. They are beautiful. Where do you donate them to charity? Some groups are in for a lovely gift.  Have a great holiday weekend, even if it is a little cold. Our furnace came on the last two nights.

Thank you for the kind words.  I make up a bunch and kind of stockpile them.  Then I take some to the children's hospital, a pregnancy center that promotes keeping the baby or adoption, and a children's home/orphanage.  They are all about an hour away from me so I wait until I have a bunch to take.  

Our furnace kicked on too, but it is clear and beautiful and I prefer it cool.  I forgot--where do you live?

Lynne, you sound like me. I enjoy  sewing quilts for children. They are so colorful and bright.

I live in SW Ohio. Not too far north of Cincinnati.  We had sunshine this morning, but it's still cool for the end of May. 

Hopefully it will get brighter in JUne.

Take care,

NanaSuz
