HtbaS – Episode 304

In this episode of the Hip to be a Square quilting podcast, I talk briefly about some end-of-school-year activities, my experience and tips for making a tuffet, the recent Netflix series “Anne with an E”.

  1. Glad you can get your voicemails now :-). Yeah for finishing your tuffet. They are pretty to look at but have not been on my need or want to do list. Assembling them in a class that has a knowledgeable & organized instructor with a helpful husband is for sure worth the $$$.

    Hopefully you will provide more reviews on your children’s monthly crates experience. I sent the 2 middle grand daughters (ages 4 & 7) each a Kiwi crate for their spring break week this year and my daughter in law had a favorable review for both of them.

    Looking forward to the first celebrity sew in.


  2. But what did you really think about “Anne with an E”? I also appreciated what they were trying to do, enjoyed the first episodes but found the end of the season vexing. I was very angry after watching the final episode. They took something lovely and turned it too much for me. I knew there would be drama but still….They took it too far. Especially with Matthew. I spent the better part of my teen years being afraid to go home because of what i might find. I didn’t appreciate that they took something safe and did that. Just my little rant.

  3. Pam, what were the boxes you got for the kids? I am also looking for something for middle school age? Last summer my kids were about the age of yours now, we hired a college student to take them to movies, pool and keep an eye on them. This year I have more work from home options to keep an eye on them myself.


  4. By now you must be the mother of two middle schoolers. Hope that is going well.

    Thanks so much for sending your throat to me. I added a cough and runny nose for value add. 😉

    Resizing a quilt – you can make more blocks or upsize some blocks.

    For Grand Parlor, I used handbags instead of baskets. Just an idea for future raffle baskets.

    Do you have a product launch every quarter? How many products does your company have that are active? Perhaps the engineers should make sure that the products work before you work hard to launch them? Yes, I am being a bit snarky and NOT blaming you, but it seems weird that the product didn’t work.

    You are doing so many exciting things on the Stitch. Good work!
