I enjoy this site more than any other.  I check it every day.
I appreciate the effort and time the administrators put in to making this site work so well.
If we end up having to pay a subscription, however, I may drop out, as all our expenses have gone up, and I just don't want to pay any more for things that are not a necessity.

I feel confused. LyndaC is listed as a “Paid” member.  I myself sent payment for 2018. Has the subscription model NOT been enacted?

sDBev, I felt the same way when I read LyndaC's comment.

Yup, it's in full swing, Bev. Perhaps Lynda (and Debby) are speaking going forward.

Just to clarify (not that it really matters) but I was agreeing with Bev and wondering what LyndaC was referring to.

Oops. I guess I read it the wrong way, Debby.  :-[ ;D Thanks for clarifying.

Sorry I caused confusion, friends! 
I DID mean in the future!
This and Olive Tree are my favorite sites.
I do not want to lose either.

Olive Tree is a Bible site that allows one to customize how you want to read your Bible. 
You can set it up so you can read a chapter per day or more, or you can set it up to read the whole Bible each year, or you can research topics and study by topics.  By touching a scripture, it will bring up more background information about it, and you can choose your favorite commentary if you want to research more about a scripture.  You can even choose from different versions of the Bible - King James Version, etc.

You can choose the scripture you want from a grid, alphabetically, or in the order the Bible is available now - Old Testamaent, New Testament.

It is faster finding the correct scripture in church rather than flippping through pages.

It is the best out there!  It is worth the small one-time charge.

Thank You - I think that's the one DIL told me about - but I was thinking you were talking about a sewing site!!

Marcia,I thought LyndaC was talking about a sewing related site too. I know there are quilt patterns by Olive Tree Textiles.
I wouldn’t have guessed Olive Tree Ministries. I was thinking of Olive Tree Projects,(encouraging family preservation by caring for the health and well-being of women and children in Haiti). Or Olive Tree Genealogy - free genealogy. Or a fast food restaurant “Olive Tree Mediterranean Grill”.  :grinning:

I don’t visit Facebook,Pinterest or Twitter.

I am glad we straightened that out!  Olive Tree IS a daily Bible reading site, unrelated to Cutting Line or any sewing site..  All they have in common is that they are both top in their area of expertise!

Pina, I agree.  I do not go to any of those sites on the advice of my attorney son.

There is an Olive Tree site about missions in Haiti?  I would like to know more!  I spent a summer there starting a sewing school so they would have a way to earn money.  Many from this site donated machines and fabric to help!

All the money from the book "Haiti, the Lost Paradise" goes to the Good Shepherd Mission there where I worked.

Louise just posted her new pattern to the FB group earlier this am.  She's wanting suggestions for names!   Nice looking tops.

The new pattern looks like fun sewing and wearing; I'm going to pick it up at the ASG conference in July.

On the cutting board today ... I'm attempting a mash-up of 3 CLD patterns. I've made the Pure & Simple shell a couple of times, with more in the near-term pipeline, but I wanted that nice "almost sleeveless" look with some other features. To wit: I'm lifting the buttoned front & facing from By Popular Demand. I like that neckline better, too.  Once I'm happy with that modification, I'm using the side vent pattern from Ebb & Flow, another favorite of mine. Recently made 3 of them ;-)

I think I've got every thing redrawn, so I'm cutting out a test garment now from some leftover linen that I loved as a MSS pant.

This is really fun! I hope it works as envisioned  8)

Just for you, Marciae. I didn't have the buttons and buttonholes finished when I put it on for a trial run, but I decided to get a photo quickly. The photo probably won't have a long "shelf life" as it's just coming from my PC, not a hosting site. I don't really want to spend hours "futzing" with that, since I have a bunch of sewing to do.

I'm pleased with the top - this one wasn't cut at the hem to have the Ebb side vents. After a decent pressing, the hem behaved better, too ;-) Nice that I can wear it as a vest, as well as an airy summer top.

This linen, of which I now only have a few scraps remaining, is such nice stuff that I must have gotten it from Louise some years ago!

Oh well, looks like I have to futz with an image hosting site. Sigh. Not this afternoon, though - sorry!

Thanks for trying.  If you have the photo on your computer - us the attachment and other options at the bottom of the post - from there you can access your computer and 'open' the pic and it will load.  Mine always load sideways - but they load!!  HTH

If you open the "attachments and other options" menu, you should see a dialogue of various options.  "Attach" should be in bold right above a field for an address.  Use the "browse" button on the right to navigate to the image on your hard drive, and then upload it just as you would do in the gallery.  I believe all registered members are able to attach an image in this subforum.

Yes, I have copied and printed these instructions.  I have followed them carefully.  They do not work for me 90% of the time, so it is not worth my time to try any more.

However, I can do without posting photos and still enjoy the posts of others!

Sorry to be so tardy in getting back to this discussion. I was totally engaged in sewing up more linen garments for the road trip we're taking. I'll get back to the pic, but it could be weeks!

That was one of the cool days, when I used it as a vest! I did find some nice buttons, small and large, from a 10-year-old project and they're now in use. Alternated large and small buttons and like the effect.
