Double Wedding Rings. UGHHH! My bright idea for the loving couple is leaving me feeling anything but. Now I have to decide if it meets the 20 mph test (Does it look good driving by at 20mph) or do I redo it? Thank goodness my other nephew is going to Basic Training with the promise of NO impending nuptials any time soon. One wedding quilt a year is my limit. I know this is a hazardous time to be joining up, but I respect him for his decision. A part of me almost wishes it was me. With my hubby now retired I find how much I miss the AF people, the adventures (??) and even the moving. Someone waved to me the other day while driving and I ran into people I knew in the store. Before that always meant it was time for a PCS. Do you think you will stay longer than 20? I guess part of that is the economy and what your job is. We would have liked one more assignment, but we were already "home" to Wyoming so it didn't make sense to move again. Well, back to the kids (who have been painting themselves) and to ponder my next move on that quilt. Have a great day.
Well we are real people spread out across Texas who love to quilt and talk about it! We're even looking at the plausibility of meeting at a retreat area this summer! Some of us are longtime/"real"time friends!
We'd even like to find a moment to meet each other at International Quilt Festival in Houston next fall...ya need to go to Groups under Meet&Share and find the Lone Star Galz and check us out! Take a moment to see what we're gabbin about...and then join the fray!
Hey Ms. Air Force...come join the wild bunch at Lone Star Galz!
We need your efficiency and lofty ideaz! lol...really though we're having fun and there's some galz from your neighborhood too so hope to 'see' you there soon...happy stitches!
We still have friends stationed at Lackland. They are hoping for a PCS to Alaska. I joined my husband in Alaska after a Cope Thunder exercise and still remember the vibrant, spectacular flowers. I would love to do a quilt in the brilliant reds, purples and yellows that were so dominant. Also ate the best prime rib ever at some little place called the Turtle Club. My big project now is a Double Wedding Ring for my nephew's wedding. I find it difficult to find time to quilt also, but have recently been giving the kids scraps and letting them "sew" on my old machine. They think that is pretty fun and I can keep an eye on them. Have a great day!
The neat thing about transfers is the opportunity to see new quilt shops and take classes from people all over the country. I found different areas catered to different tastes. So glad to be retired back to Wyoming. Our shops here have a large selection of Western and outdoors material. But truth be told I miss the AF and the people in it. At two years in this house I was cleaning closets, at three I was giving stuff to the Airman's Attic and SalArmy. I just felt it was time to move. Have had a hard time giving up my packing boxes, but I did upgrade my stash into clear Rubbermaid tubs. Thanks for serving!
