Re: Trial: US v Manafort, Eastern District of Virginia

Thanks! I'm not talking exclusively about Mueller investigation, though. Shouldn't bank regulators be going after Calk? We don't know that they aren't. True. OT, but how are you doing? Not meaning to pry, but hope things are looking up for you. :bighug: Not prying at all, and thanks for asking. We'...

Re: Trial: US v Manafort, Eastern District of Virginia

Would any IAALs care to opine as to why Steve Calk hasn't been charged with anything :?: 1) There may, in fact, be a sealed indictment right now. 2) He may be negotiating a cooperation agreement. In any case, unless he can be tied to Russian interference in the election, it would be outside the sco...

Re: Kobach for Governor -- Kansas

I don't vote in primaries because I am a registered Independent. I should bite the bullet and change to Democratic because I haven't voted for an R in a very long time and there is no way I will vote for an R in today's political climate.

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

I forgot to mention that you'll do better if you take the quilt out of the dryer every 20 minutes or so and shake it out before throwing it back in the dryer. Damp quilts have a tendency to roll up into a ball so you need to shake it out flat every so often. It's not a big deal if you don't, but it ...

Re: Fogbow Arts and Crafts Club

I have no experience with washing a quilt, but what about drying it for just a bit in a dryer, at a lower heat? You won't stress it too much, it won't over-dry and over-shrink, and it will dry quicker outside. You can absolutely do that, but it won't actually buy you much. You can't really over-dry...

Sit on the side of the tub with a glass of wine and a book while you squish the quilt around with your feet.
Now, that I can do.

Just curious, Sugar. I haven't washed any of my quilts yet (except for one that I have that hubbie's grandmother made us as a wedding gift many years ago), but the newer ones I have were recommended to wash in extra large washer in laundromat and not put in dryer. Does that make sense? Both of my A...
