  2. Of course! That's what happens when I'm listening to too many things at once. In that case, these tutorials are pretty good: https://www.violetcraft.com/tutorials#/fpp-tutorials
  3. Whoops! Different kind of paper piecing. English is something I do and LOVE and even sell 3D kits for (https://shop.miriamfelton.com/category/kits). The thing I need to learn is Foundation Paper Piecing and how to design a pattern in that ūüėĄ Handy resource though! I love EPP! M
  4. In our group chat yesterday I mentioned I'd just torn out an article from an old Quilters' Newsletter on English Paper Piecing. It's available as a free pdf online from Quilting Daily! Linked and attached for good measure. @Miriam Felton QN1607-English-Paper-Piecing.pdf
  5. Echo Lloyd Alexander: the Chronicles of Prydain are great, but I also recommend Vesper Holly (probably has some not great cultural stuff to watch out for so maybe check them out yourself first) - she's like a teen girl Indiana Jones. ‚ô•ÔłŹ Piratica and its sequel might be worth checking out; Millicent Min, Girl Genius and its follow-ups are very sweet and funny, though not fantasy.
  6. So now there's a whole #OffRav movement I take it, but it's hard to find solid recent sources of information about this. I'm so sporadically in the fiber world that I don't have a good read on the whole situation, but if anybody else does and would DM me about it, I'd love to know more. Thanks! ETA: I did find this blog post that is fairly recent and also links to several other blog posts. ETA2: A couple more links. Liz Corke's Blog (multiple posts) Silvia Maggi Design ETA3: One more!
  7. Thanks, @ellenmiller! We've read much of the Narnia series, and I will look into the others for him! Yay!
  8. Kim asked about books for her 10-year old son. Has he read anything by Lloyd Alexander, Edgar Eager, T.A. Barron (not as wonderful as the others but...) Dick King Smith (these might seem too young but they are great), the Narnia series? The Pink Motel by Carrie Ryie Brink. Let me know if I'm missing the mark!
  9. Hi, Kim! I'm just waiting to join the 4:30 eastern time meeting - has it been cancelled, or just running late?

      Hi Sherri! I'm so sorry I didn't see this till just now, but I'm glad you were able to join us!

  10. We were chatting on Zoom about baking challah, traditional Jewish sweet egg bread. Here's my recipe. Ask away if you have quesitons! kim's challah recipe.pdf

    Printmaking

    I love making monoprints. I've done some linocut as well -- I haven't done much of that for a while, and I miss it. I finally started making art again after a months-long dry spell. I spent a couple hours over the weekend making prints, some with a gel plate and some with a piece of glass. I had actually taken video of the whole thing to post in the art journaling group, but my SD card died in the middle of transferring the video to the computer (nooooooo!) and is no longer recognized by either the computer or the camera, so I think there's no salvaging it. Making more prints once I pick

  18. @Sandi Wiseheart After repurposing that post, I also repurposed some old tweets and I think tomorrow I might hunt down some old emails where I gave lengthy advice that might be useful to more than just the person who asked for it. I also learned something new today (how to use open source software called Phplist to self-host a mailing list instead of using MailChimp or similar) and will try to write that up soon. Also? I rarely use pictures. If you stick with 1 - 3, I think that's fine.
  19. @Kimberly HirshAll that blather said and done: If you discover any useful ideas for repurposing other writings into a blog post, I am all ears! edited to add your name!
  20. @Kimberly Hirsh You know, I just recently started thinking about repurposing my writings in various places for my blog. It would help me post more often, which would make me happy (and apparently, it would make my readers happier, too). It’s not as though I don’t write very much each day; the only days where I write fewer than 1500 words are days when I am sick or REALLY busy. It’s just a matter of where I have written my usual couple of thousand words a day. Apologies for the twisted double negative phrase back there. Attempt at humour got lost in the tangle. I meant that writing a bunch

  22. @Sandi Wiseheart I finally "wrote" the blog post about creative time as meditation time, which consisted mostly of copying and pasting my post here with a teeny bit of editing. (Take that, prerequisite procrastination!) I have a number of other blog post ideas floating around as forum posts or collections of tweets, and I think now I am going to embrace this sort of repurposing of my writing more.
