Sisters hands

Posted by Irene Gallway on July 22, 2016 at 2:54pm 6 Comments

I was taking my turn sitting beside my sister holding her.  I fell asleep holding her hand and I was given this picture yesterday at the funeral.  The next day she drew her last labored breath.  The funeral was a celebration with my cousin reading several memories of her.  There was some funny stories which depicted her to a T.  She will be missed.…


Stalled or Stalling?

Ever since I finished my UFO Valentine quilt a couple of weeks ago, I've lost inspiration to move on to other projects or even start new ones.  Am I just making excuses, am I burned out, is it too hot to work?  Maybe my brain needs a rest?  Just at a loss right now and some of the things I have put in my lineup have deadlines.   Needing some motivation...…


PTSD syndrom

Posted by Kathy/WA on July 20, 2016 at 6:02pm 9 Comments

Yes I said it and I have it.  It's been three months sense I've touched my fabrics or even been to a fabric store of any kind.  Even before my moms passing, I was spending time with DD and the grand kids and running to help mom.  These days I work, go home, change clothes, go to moms house and try to get something fixed, painted, cleaned, something so that we can get ready to sell.  I think in the past two months there has only been a couple of days when I didn't go to moms house…


Survived Quilt Wyoming

Posted by Barbara Graham on July 19, 2016 at 8:02pm 3 Comments

Quilt Wyoming was in our corner of the state this year. The state is divided into 5 districts. Each one takes a turn putting on the state convention. We had three national teachers, Grace Errea, Susan  Cleveland and David Taylor. Because our corner has the fewest members, there were about 12 of us in charge. No real committees. The happy part of that is whatever your assignment was, there was not any bickering  (unless you talk to yourself). We had a wonderful time! But, I'm glad it is done…


Just checking in...

Hello Been awhile…we have been having a great summer at the lake. Hot and dry…not good for the farmers. Been working on some UFOs. Want to finish a few before hunting for more! This one is a nice size for the campfires in the Fall. Nothing fancy, just cozy. Our family is getting a new little member for the grandsons!! Luckily, it will live with them. They have to pick between the two female standard poodles. They came up from Texas. The handler said they are the best two she has ever worked…

Today at 3:45 p.m my sister passed away with her family and caregivers at her bedside.  She has struggled with this disease since 2009.  The past few weeks has been a really hard time for her. She had to gasp for air. Will miss her dearly.

However, some other things happened this past week. I picked up Johan’s I-spy quilt. Here’s the front (there are a few fiber animals, but you have to look…
