    Hello All,
         Just wanted to update everyone.  My pumpking wall hanging is all s
ewn together.  I went to Wal-Mart yesterday and brought the black felt need
ed for the eyes, nose and mouth. I will probably cut these out today and ge
t them appliqued. That just leaves the border, backing. batting and binding
. Meaning this time a trip to JoAnn's.  The pattern for this is in McCalls  
Quick Quilts, Aug./Sept. 2014 issue. Page 24 in case others here might want
 to make it.  
          My summer night gown has been sewn together and I have basted the
 arms and neck facings, so am reading to sew these together.  That will jus
t leave the Hem.  I cut the night gown pattern 4 inches longer because I ha
te a short gown where when you put it on it hikes up around your waist whil
e getting into bed.  Of course the guys like this. Laughing, laughing.

Hello Barbara,
     I have a wall hanging from many years ago for x=mas. It is a festive
 Christmas tree using several Christmas colors.  When I moved I gave almost
 a years worth of wall hangings to a friend, she made a quilt for the needy
 out of them.  Not bad for recycling.

Hello Beverly,
     I forgot to put your name on my last reply with Barbara.  My pumpkin w
all hanging was started last fall but moved within the city, so was put on  
the back burner you might say.  Wanted to finish it before starting a new p
roject.  
     Just wanted to say that under alt.sewing on my computer there is a sen
tence that says "a group not as it seems."  Can anyone on this newsgroup ex
plain it.

You are probably reading this group on an ad-laden archive  
(inspirepoint.com?), and it actually says "Sewing Discussions A  
group that is not as it seams. " a pun. You would do better  
subscribing to the group using a real news service. Try
