I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Catching up on the posts.  I have been working on several projects. Picked up my Blue Ridge Beauty,  B. HUnter, from Brenda last week.  It is patiently waiting for me to sew the binding on.  Then will have to decide where to put it.  Gift it or use it on one of the beds.  Prob is, I have quilts that I  created on all the beds already. And this one took me over a year to finish,  working on it off and on, of course,  so don't know if I want to part with it.   Had a rare weekend off from work.  or at least Friday and Saturday,  so we spent those days at the RV at Lake Erie.  I love that area, but the weather has not been good.  Rain, rain,  rain. As I am sure all of you are experiencing as well.  

Starting to piece the T shirt quilt top for my oldest granddaughter, who is heading to college in the fall.  I remember when I was feeding her baby food from the jar.  Where does time go?  My friends are either dead or recovering from some age related problem.  I am still going kind of strong.  Developed some pain in my shoulders that I think is arthritis. But haven't been diagnosed officially.   Still following the WFPB diet,  and last Saturday we went to an ice cream social at the RV park at the lake.  MY spouse fell off the wagon big time this weekend.  He ate the ice cream then for breakfast he ordered eggs and pancakes.  I remain steadfast and did not eat those things.   Ice cream has never been one of my fgavorite foods.  IN fact at a Dairy Queen I was more likely to order a foot long coney than the ice cream.  But been over a year since I indulged.  WE found a good dairy free ice cream at Krogers that tastes like the real thing,   Watching the Today show where a segment on meatless burgers 

just finished.  Burgers were my downfall as well.  But I am sure Dr. Esselystn would not approve even the meatless ones.  But in a rare occaison they will satisfy my craving for a burger.  If I can slap some lettuce, tomato, onion,  and vegan mayo on something I am happy.   Sort of got off track here.   I have been caught up in string piecing lately.  It's a great time filler for me,  when I feel the need to sew, these small blocks are an easy project that I can spend a few minutes or a few hours working on.  I have no idea what I will do with them,  but thinking I will pair them with the 3 1/2"  4 patch blocks that I have finished as leaders and enders.   Would love a get together with you all. Seems like a long time since we,  or at least I, have done that.  So Keep us posted on the plans for a get together.... Which as you see I am handing off to anyone willing to plan it.

New machines, fabric hauls, lunch with friends...and I haven't sewed a stitch in weeks. Nothing is jumping out at me. I had high hopes of getting at least 3 UFO's finished this year. ~sigh~ Seems like every weekend brings a requirement to drive to Columbus. Give me shivers.

Carol, you were quite lucky to get 8 years (LOL that's something I would type) of fabric. That will keep you busy for a long time. You and Kathy look really good. It was fun getting together for lunch in previous years. Maybe we can do it again this fall.

I'm back to sewing again. I had trouble with my old Brother ULT2001 and took it up to be repaired. They said that because it was 18 yrs old they might be able to fix it. They said the repair guy would be out for 1-2 weeks so I left it anyway. They gave me a brochure for a new machine and I took it home. After a few days my DH kept telling me to order a new machine so I called the repair shop and said not to fix it and ordered a new machine. A Brother DreamCreator XE VM6200D. When I went up to pick the old one up they said that there wasn't anything wrong with it even though I couldn't get it to sew without the thread getting caught below, couldn't use the needle threader and couldn't get the feed dogs down. I don't know what I did wrong but the guy tested the machine and it was fine. So I have an old embroidery machine that works and a brand new one that will be delivered this afternoon. Not sure what I will do with the old one as I also have a Brother SE400 small machine.

I got the new machine and it doesn't fit in my current cabinet. We can't figure out how to work around that as the cabinet is just not wide enough to have a new top made with a bigger insert so tomorrow I'm going to order a new cabinet. Then I just have to worry about how to get the old cabinet down a flight of stairs and the new one up.

Hello everyone, I'm pleased to get some post, for some reason I have not been able to see any of you, well I'm back.  Oh what a wonderful find, I'm sure you are going to enjoy using your bargain things.

Oh, that was funny, Carol - I didn't even notice the typo. haha

GREAT that you & Kathy were able to get together and wonderful pics!

8 yards of fabric, not years LOL

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on June 8, 2019 at 8:12pm

I think that's probably my share of luck for quite some time, Sheila.  I' ve been pretty fortunate! Especially since I got a call from Kathy Steele last week.  She and her husband were camping about a half hour from me and we were able to get together for a fun afternoon of lunch and laughter.  Sure miss getting together with many of the Ohio Quilters.  We need to plan another get together.

Whoa! Carol, first the thriving flowers, now a great fabric find. What's next?

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on June 8, 2019 at 7:12pm

I often read the posts about finding a super deal on fabric or thread with a little envy....I am never in the right place at the right time.  But yesterday, hubby and I were out and stopped at a yard sale just by chance.  I found some fabric, still packed in the Connecting Threads box, containing a small wall hanging kit, 3 packages of charm squares, 2 jelly rolls, and a total of 8 years of Connecting Threads fabric.  The packing list/invoice was also in the bottom of the box - total $99.93.  Yard sale price I paid $5.00.  My deal of a lifetime!
