About Me
I am not quite ready for retirement yet but would love to be so that I can spend more time making quilts. I am a working lady with a wonderful husband who is retired but working part time. I started quilting without knowing what I was doing. I have been putting quilts together for about 5 years or so and only with the last quilt did I have it top quilted by a professional. Now all I have to do is get the binding on,
I am a grandmother to two wonderful children. They live in Florida so I do not get to see them often. They are Christian who is 14 and Hope who is 11. They are wonderful!!!
Of course the parents are pretty good also.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, machine quilting
My pets are awesome!
We have a Cat, Daisey Mae is her name.

Happy New Year from New Jersey

Posted on December 31, 2008 at 1:45pm 1 Comment

Happy New Year, the best is yet to come (as the saying goes). I am new to blogging so forgive me if I do not do this correctly.

I hope you all have a safe and Happy and Healthy New Year.

I would like to give Kuddos to CT for the great material they have. I made a great quilt from material purchased. It is waiting for the binding to be put on. I found this quilt that I loved and wanted to make but could not find the right material until one day I received the new catalog from CT.… Continue

Hi Dottie. Yes we have had terrible damage to the south shore of Long Island this year. We are losing the battle against mother nature with our barrier beaches. They are our protection here...sure hope mother nature decides to return the sand to us. Thanks for the welcome! Happy quilting.

Dottie, yes we have the lake effect from Lake Superior when it snows. if the storm comes in off the water, man do we get a dump. If it comes in from the north, it usually isn't so bad. It made my DH's job very stressful as there was so much pressure from the travelling public who did not understand the lake effect. 10 miles down the road they might not have any snow where we were getting dumped on

Dottie, I loved it after I got into it but I was some scared for awhile. I really didn't think I was going to be able to do it. I had no problem sewing the strips together and then making the tube nor cutting it but after I had all these tubular things and they said cut this one between 2 and 3 and the next one between 3 & 4 and etc. I panicked and thought I can't do this and I will never keep this straight. I told myself yes you can and did one step at a time and here it is. I just wondered what others thought of it as it was a gift and I hope people didn't say it was nice without meaning it. I hope the couple like it. I was pleased with it when I finished it. Thanks

If you cannot find it on the internet, I have the entire pattern downloaded to my computer and am more than happy to share if you send me your address.

I don't know if you've had a chance to start your own birthday block swap or if you are even still interested, but I just had someone drop after doing one month because their summer is busier than expected. Are you still interested in participating. She completed the July block so you won't have to have a block done until August 20. I definately need to find someone to fill this spot quickly, so let me know ASAP if you are interested. Thanks!

Thank you God, is correct, Dottie. What a blessing to have your hubby healthy! And what a celebration you'll have with the grandkids. When my nieces/nephew and now great nieces/nephews come to vist we always have an UN-birthday party before they leave as we are never together for any of our birthdays.....that is always fun to do. Have a wonderful time and thank you for taking time to comment on my quilt.

Below you will find a portion of the "guidelines" posted on the swap group page. I've filled the spot for July, but I still need someone for May 2010. I've got about 6 people who have requested information, though, so if you are definately interested, you'll want to get back to me quickly.
Each month, members will each make a block (to the specifications of the recipient) to send to the person whose birthday falls within that month (or who chose that month because their birthday month was already taken). We will be starting in July.

Choosing Your Block
As soon as you know what you would like your block to look like, please post the information. Everyone has months that are busier than others and might like the opportunity to work ahead. Please notify other members of your choices for your block no later than the 1st of the month prior to yours.

Making the Swap Blocks
Once you know what the designated block recipient for that month would like to receive, you can get started…find the pattern, choose the fabrics and start piecing the block. Mail the block sometime between the 1st and 20th of the month it is to be received during. (So, to keep using July as an example, we’ll all mail Molly her blocks sometime between July 1 and July 20). This way, hopefully, the recipient will receive her blocks during the month she was supposed to. We will exchange addresses via private messages.

Receiving the Swap Blocks
Once you’ve gotten your blocks, you can do whatever you’d like with them. However, as I stated in the original discussion post, “I certainly hope to never find out that a block I sent in was ‘unacceptable.’ It is within your rights to alter, fix, or discard any block you receive, but please don't tell me!” I stand by this statement. I’d like this to be a fun swap between friends. If you don’t like a block you receive, change it, pitch it, do whatever you’d like with it, except complain about it, please!
