Thanks for the info, Diane!
Comment by Diane Deitering yesterday

Sheila - The shop is just off Route 23, about a mile south of Waldo. It looks like a regular house, but every room is full of fabric. Lots of it. She has regular hours like 10 to 5. We also ate at a little diner that is famous for fried balogny sandwiches and was featured on the food channel once. Aren't I just a wealth of information. lol As for grandchildren, it broke my heart that my DIL had to go back to her teaching job after maternity leave and take 3 year old Drew and 6 week Audra back to the sitters at 6:30 in the morning. But only about 5 more weeks of school left.

great thing about grandkids is that they eventually go home or you go home,  whichever the case may be.  Finally started sewing again.  Using all the red fat quarters you all sent me for  the birthday exchange.... Making a red and white quilt,  have about 1/2 of the blocks pieced,  hoping i have enough to make a queen sized quilt,  but whatever I have I have so not sure what size I'll end up with.

We get to go home on Friday. We can do this for a week. We sure couldnt manage this pace long term like our son and his wife do. But that is why the good Lord gives us children in our youth. We may not know very much when young, but we at least have stamina then.

I think Kathy, you and you husband need a babysitter to get away for the evening!

Not a chance of sewing for me this week. We are visiting son in Michigan. Right now they have 13 month old twins in addition to their own 5 kids. And they are putting an addition on the house. Bob is helping with insulation and dry wall and I am helping with kids, running to practices and gymnastics, preschool, juggling naps, playing games and hiding Easter eggs. I didn't even bring anything to work on. We are going to babysit one night so the kids can get away for a dinner and movie. They don't get that chance very often.

Thanks for the info Diane! Waldo is only about 25 miles from me! Did you get their hours or address?

We were on our way to Otterbein College to see our grandson play baseball for Ohio Northern University when we stopped at the little town of Waldo Ohio. Went to this shop called Serendipidee and what a pleasant surprise. Wonderful selection of fabrics and everything you need for the quilter. Check it out sometime.

Lisa my kids are 23 and 16. Both didn't want to take drivers ed because it's $350. Now that the weather is better, my DS will work on his driving. The few times that I've let him practiced, I suffered with nervous laughter. With my DD I was fine. It was weird.

Lisa, look up Fun and Done patterns.  It is a specific line of patterns that use a specific tool called the Batting Buddy.  The batting buddy is what we are referring to as the ruler. It is an acrylic square with a smaller inside square that comes apart from the outer square.  Those 2 pieces are what are used to cut the precise size of the batting and the backing for the block.  Then there are templates that you make that are included in the pattern that you use to make the other pieces you sew down. When you sew your block, you sew all three layers at one time....the top, the batting and the backing, so you quilt as you make the block.  Then you sew these quilted blocks together and when you are done, it is completely quilted and done.  Fun and Done.

We have storms and rain today here in my area.  I need to stay inside anyway to finish up some projects before the weather turns nice later in the week and I want to out in the yard.  Have some pruning and cleaning up to do out there.
