    Morning Debbie! Thanks for the feedback on my military uniform! I had so much fun talking on the phone with you the other day that I did not realize that we had talked for almost an hour! I do have a button page up now on my farm website: http://www.GrapeLanePoultryFarm.org but have not listed prices or all my other buttons yet. I have my button pics on an old memory disk and I need to go to Kinkos and see if they can download them for me. I also need to figure out pricing. Costs to run the kiln and gather supplies have changed! In-the-mean-time, if you win the sewing machine I will barter all the buttons you want for it! LOL :))) kidding - but you never know until you try! My other sewing machine is a Sears from the 70's I found in very good condition at the Cats Meow thrift store. I use that and the 2 treadles to sew. I don't know what I'd do with an modern sewing machine! Could be dangerous! I may not be able to stop sewing! Or I could gain weight from not treadling like crazy! LOL!!

    Hi Debbie!
    I just saw the 10 finalists and am very disappointed in Threads regarding some of their choices. I cannot overcome the thoughts that my ethics are very different from some of the other contestant's ethics. I strongly believe at least 2 never sewed their item(s). All the way from being a haberdasher to a professional level seamstress/designer for your very first sewing experience; I do not feel good about believing actually happened. I am sorry to see folks like you not even place. Too bad more experience was not behind the decision making of the 10 finalists. The outcome is not leaving me feeling very good about the merits of the contest and I for one, am sorry to have participated. I am however, glad to know you and look forward to talking more in the future! Blessings! Jayne
