Patchwork Quilters with Arthritis or Carpal Tunnel SyndromeWritten by Kaye Rue
I am a novice quilter, I was almost ready to give up quilting, even though I enjoyed it so much, because I was becoming so annoyed with myself.

Displaying PostersWritten by Rosana Hart
How many ways can you display posters? With easy availability of thousands of inexpensive posters online, you can turn any house or apartment into a unique art gallery!

They don't have to be in same colors or about same subject. Just let them reflect what you like.

Soon you will find an arrangement that makes you say, "Aha! That's it!" Once a grouping is up on wall, you can still change it any time you get a feeling that you want to add another poster or to rearrange ones you have.
