Just  checking in,   Monica....   How  did  your  hip  surgery  go?   I  had  both  of  mine  done  in  1989  and   am  still  doing  great!  I  am  sold  on  that   process.

As I stated before MsMartyD I did not have hip surgery...... :) and at this point I am giving up asking about your Billdanas.....so never mind, do not need them anymore. That was February......hope you are well and doing good.

(Waving to all) The "Be kind to yourself..." article could not have come at a better time. I've missed you all but health matters have eaten all of my time and energy.  I have been doing some sketch ideas and some notes for when I can work again and that has helped a little.
The house is done but we have a lot of unpacking still to do.
Many good wishes to all.

Hi Sandi, just read an article on a blog that thought you might be interested in seeing, (about Indian quilting) https://julzcrafts.com/2018/06/25/kantha-vintage-quilts-recycling-fabrics-the-time-honoured-way
Hope everyone is having a nice summer.

So interesting, Bev!  I wouldn't have thought you would ever need a quilt in India...  my impression was that it is always hot there!  And it's so wonderful to know that no matter where you are in the world, we're all so much the same!  Thanks so much for sharing this link!

Summer is moving right along.  I am getting ready to go to Telluride in about a month.  Normally, this getting ready phase would take me a couple of weeks.  With my "new normal," I am allowing a month!   :laugh:

The Supreme Court decision that requires online businesses to pay sales tax in every state/locality that collects sales tax makes me incredibly nervous.  How on earth are we micro-business people supposed to deal with this?

It actually only applies to bigger businesses.  :)

I have read that in South Dakota, the minimum for compliance is more than $100,000 and/or 200 transactions. So no, it wouldn't apply.  But every state is different and I can't find anything for other states.  Plus, where my house is, the sales tax is 4.9%.  If I drive 4 miles, it is 6.9%.  If I continue down the road another 3 miles, it is 7.2%.  etc, etc....  I have learned there are somewhere between 10,000-12,000 different sales tax jurisdictions in the country.

Yes, I am hoping that all the states that charge sales taxes (I think that number is 45) all decide on a minimum threshold that I will never meet.  But still, it is perplexing to those of us who actually pay attention to such things.  Thanks for the speedy response, Larissa!

From what I've seen, and granted, I didn't look it up myself, the *lowest* number in any state may be $10,000 in sales in *that* state.

You know, actually, I don't have a problem paying sales tax on my sales.  I do it all the time when I do a show.  And when I make a sale online, the customer buys from me.  So at that point the money is being spent in my sales tax jurisdiction - not the customer's.  It would seem to make so much more sense to collect whatever the sales tax is at the point of sale (the vendor/artist), not at the consumer's location.

It would, but I've yet to find an instance where a taxing authority made sense.  :)

I made almost the same comment on a Facebook group that was discussing this sales tax issue. Received the response that since it's now up to congress to work out a plan that we should write to our congressmen. It would be so much easier to know what tax to charge, and the sale does actually "take place" in our residence, not where it is delivered to.
