As i have been living in Germany for 26 years I have not been to the local library in my home town USA. This summer when vacationing and visiting my parents,i was asked to pick up a book my father had ordered at the local library.

Shocked!!!  :faints: The number of books are few, computers are there and there is no card catalog!!! The library seems so uninviting - i remember the happy hours looking up entries in the card catalog or just perusing books with subjects i have not been introduced to.

Absolutely no debth of thought - depressing.
If i wanted to lend a movie.. good. If i wanted a book on physics, Shakespear order only. The library was a place for thought, research and discovery. Now i see almost no purpose.

Very sad indeed!


Happy Birthday @Kitten!!!

To be fair, what i see as 'difficult' is more a question of patience and keeping on going...

Should be beautiful when done!

I have used the self thread needles for years and i have only seldom had a problem with them losing the thread. But would they not be a little short for quilting?

The boarder is phenom! It was pretty before you added the border, but now it really snaps!
