Do you speak the language?

I am still in Lubbock waiting for my uncle's funeral.  It is a county burial and they won't let us bury him until Thursday, Nine days after his death!!!  Isn't that crazy, so my one week trip has turned into a two week trip.  I wish I had brought some quilting with me.  My mom let me borrow her sewing machine and I offered to make curtains for my niece and curtain's for my brother-in-law's camper, got all the material cut, and would you believe I cannot get her sewing machine to work?  Give me an old people powered sewing machine any day - they are so easy to fix!  I don't suppose someone lives in Lubbock who would let me borrow a machine for two days?  LOL
I had this sitting in my drafts and thought this would be a perfect time to share it!

Bonnie Hunter printed this on FB, and since I have been confused by some of these anagrams, I thought I would share!

I have a couple to add!
HQ = Hand Quilter
PPM = People Powered Machines
TO = Treadleon from Treadleon.net
HC = Hand Crank Sewing Machine
Tail = Electric Sewing Machine
TOBE = Treadle On Block Excange
Onion = people who are members of the treadleon.net site, basically anyone who uses people powered machines!

The hardest thing for me to figure out is the math on quilt sizes, I found this great chart that you can print off and share!
It tells you how long to make your quilt depending on how much of an overhang you want!

Have a great day ya'll!
