One just never knows

Posted by Laurie on September 24, 2016 at 8:07pm 3 Comments

Life got a bit hectic shortly after my last post.  But things are getting a little better now.   My husband was declared legally blind on June 7th of this year due to a rare genetic eye disease called Retinitis pigmentosa.  He can no longer drive and has applied for disability.

I'm training to be a dispatcher at the Stroud Police Dept.   It's great because it's across the intersection from my house.  I will be taking my OLETS certification test on Oct 12.

As for quilting,  I go…

Don't believe "them" when they tell you that retirement is supposed to be quiet & peaceful

Posted by Janet/MO on September 22, 2016 at 4:07pm 11 Comments

As some of you know, my daughter & her 2 boys live with us. The boys are 15 & just shy of 17. I swear the 17 yr old is an accident looking for a place to happen. He is the one who broke his right ankle on Super Bowl Sunday while playing ball with his dad & his brother. Now today he decided the genius thing to do was ride in the back of his friend's pickup.  Needless to say, his friend was going too fast around a curve on a gravel road & Mike was flung out.  The 3 other kids…

The wild year continues

Shortly after returning from a quick visit in Seattle with #1 son, I was expecting my Swedish "sister" to come for a visit so I had to clean house. Ick. As long as no one disturbs the dust, all is fine. Once I started the cleaning was brutal. She arrived and stayed with us a week before we headed off to our 50th class reunion in Texas. Because the drive wasn't going to be long enough, we added in a side trip to Grand Tetons. Luckily, they contained the fires and reopened the gate south out…

Hey Quilters,

The video in this blog is from the past webinar we did. Terri (Oregon Quilt Woman) and Joe (Owner of Quilt EZ) sit down together to go over some of the features of our Butler Robotics System (computerized quilting). Learn how to set…

It's been a busy Summer

Posted by Irene Gallway on September 21, 2016 at 4:07am 9 Comments

Hello my quilting friends,

Just stopping by to say hello.  My friend Jenny is here from England for a couple of weeks.  The sewing machines have been humming.  I helped her yesterday make a zig zag table runner.  It's been awhile since I made one so it gave my brain a bit of work-out trying to remember all the steps.  But it's done and she loves it.

The end of the week Bud's son is driving up from N.Y.  I am in the most bizarre situation.  Bud's ex girlfriend whom he hasn't…

Thanks to everyone who voted for my tablerunner

Posted by Janet/MO on September 20, 2016 at 6:47am 8 Comments

Sadly, I didn't win any of the prizes, but I enjoyed making this tablerunner anyway.  I very much appreciate the votes that all of you gave to me.

Fall is coming fast! I just mowed yesterday and what leaves there were got chopped up in the mower but when I went outside this morning, more leaves!! Thankfully DH does the leaf collecting duty so sooner rather than later I will be turning the lawn work over to him. 

This past week I got some time to make a small table runner for my sister in law who equally loves Halloween as much as I do. She is not into sewing so she asked if she bought the fabric would I make it? No need to ask…
