OK, I wondered where everybody was! I didn't mark "watch" for this new main forum. Now I'll go post!

not sure why I'm so far out of the loop, but I check Cubits a couple times a week, and there were no 'updates' or new postings showing anywhere. Tonight I start looking and lo and behold! there's new postings everywhere.. So I'm attempting to find out where you all are hiding, and see what's new with everyone. Hubby and I are experiencing some medical issues, so I haven't been sewing much at all. Tons of projects started - and for some reason I lose interest quickly. Maybe after the first of the year, it will change.
Anyway, I haven't seen anything on the old site. I suppose since I refuse to pay the fee, they aren't letting me see new posts or threads. That's fine, I'll just have to stop in here more often, although I'm not sure everyone has swapped to these forums or elsewhere. I think I'm just at that point where simple is better for the moment, and navigating thru someone else's idea of pay to play makes me twitchy..lol
OK, just wanted to start with this post and will look in to whatever else the bookmarks point where to go!
A good evening to All!

I double checked, they're all checked as Watch.. Same with the old site. It's been weeks since anything new has shown up, I wrongly assumed that either everyone was busy and not posting or that I didn't find the right crumb trail. (and I did the Refresh, clear out the cache, etc. so am not sure why new postings weren't coming in) Oh well, at least I know I have all the current ones marked.
I think the last ones I read were when Pat was doing the doll clothes and Karen had just gotten home, but that's been awhile. There were only about 3 that I kept watch on at Dgs, mostly Betty's, but now that I'm not getting anything from there, I try to keep up with her on FB.
Pat, I'm still collecting snowmen... lol There sure are some cute ones out there. If you need a few more to add to the ones I sent last year, I can stitch up some new ones..
Karen, I'm sure happy you are feeling better. Hopefully, the doc is keeping you leveled out. You have too many Grands to hug!!
Waving to Barb, Magga, and anyone else out there that is still checking in! I tip my hat to you. Hurray! (we need a 'waving' symbol!)

Unless I am mistaken, the old threads can be read but not posted on with Sharon's passing away since she was owner.

Kathy anytime you get a hankering to stitch up more blue outline snowmen, they will always have a home here! I incorporated all the ones you sent me into quilt block centers. I have one of the quilt tops pieced but like SEVERAL others they are waiting for me to get the nerve up to do them myself or money to have them quilted.

here, too!

Pat, I found a Yahoo group a couple years ago that has a snowman section. They're bluework, like what I sent you, most of them have a little saying that comes with them. Easy stitching, and super cute. I went back thru their Archive section...wow, did I miss a ton of downloads! If I remember correctly, the ones I sent were 6 1/2" blocks?

Angie, I thought I kept pics of the ones I sent Pat, but since I changed computers, can't locate the files for some reason. However, they were similar to this one, only stitched in blue and I think they were all single snowmen. A very simple outline...

Kathy:

Is that a straight stitch or did you use a couching technique on the machine? It's hard to
tell from the photo. Too cute! Alexis wants to try this, so we have a winter project on our
plates now. Thank you.

Yes, 6 1/2 inch blocks. One of the blocks was a set of 3 trees, all in blue and just stunning incorporated with the other blue winter blocks I made. Making a whole quilt of framed blocks would be fun but I wanted to make the most of the blocks I had and spread them out!

My Designer One only takes floppy disks so I think I'm going to try and find an old laptop with floppy to see if I can download some work. I would LOVE to access that Yahoo group!

actually, the snowmen are machine embroidery designs and are a double running stitch, if I remember correctly. Hubby bought me a Singer Quintet for Christmas a couple years ago, and I download a lot of designs. It hooks up to the computer for internet access and I download to an external hard drive. Other machines use memory sticks, etc. I like to try out new designs like applique, candlewicking, etc. for quilt blocks, totes, Bella's clothes.. but you sure can't beat my old machine that I've had since 1972 for regular sewing! My Quintet does well, but is a lightweight compared to my old one.

This is the Yahoo group I was referring to:

http://www.charmingstation.com/
no fees to join, just have to subscribe. They offer tons of design sets, holiday and others, free or paid for. I made a couple extras when I made Pat's and put them with some other test blocks because I wanted to make a runner from the redworks. Now I just have to find them... lol
Isn't that always the way???? Rolling my eyes.

Thanks, Kathy. It was hard to tell from the photo which stitch was used. I
appreciate the link to the web site. I'm looking at embroidery machines, but
don't want to invest a lot of money into one until I know how much (or not)
I'll use it. I do want one with internet capability, though, so I can download
some of those cool patterns!

Angie, I could not justify the expense and would have happily just made due with using my Sister's if/when I wanted to but my embroidery machine was given to me for free! I hope to try out the embroidery in January, too busy sewing right now to play with it.

Kathy, Thanks for the link, I'll look around!

Angie, one thing I can suggest is to look for multiple sizes of hoops. My machine will only do a 4" hoop and it is a bit limiting. Also make sure it is compatible with Windows 10. For all practical purposes, my machine is now just a regular sewing machine as I cannot access the patterns any longer. I'll probably find someone who doesn't have W-10 and give it away.

A 4 inch hoop is pretty small. Karen, could you find a cheap used laptop that has not been updated to 10 yet and use that to download with?

I most likely could Pat. It's not a real biggie though. I didn't use it for much. I wanted it to make Jojo's baby blanket and I did that. He's 5 now. LOL I had hoped it would work for quilt labels but too small and old for that. I bought it nearly 6 years ago and it was pretty out dated then. I didn't pay much for it so I guess I got my value out of it.

Ladies, thanks for all the tips. I've already browsed the features of Baby Lock
embroidery machines and knew there were machines that used 1 hoop (small)
or multiple hoops, so I'm learning about the process just by shopping. But I'm
certainly not going to invest a couple of thousand dollars in a machine that I
may or may not use that much. I like to hand embroider, too, so I'll check out
ebay and Craig's List before I buy, which won't be for several months yet.

I tip my hat to you.
