A Time to Quit

Posted on November 19, 2019 at 6:05am 3 Comments

In 2001 I started a chapter of the American Sewing Guild. A few years later we came out of the guild as their  fee each year kept going up and some of our members couldn't afford it. Not to mention we couldn't get people to fill the necessary positions that were required.  So we decided to come out of the Guild and just do our own thing. We named our group The St, Croix Stitchers. We have only had 6 members the past couple of years and some have been having health issues. Last Sat. I was the…

I posted the quilt I just finished. The file was too large for this area so you can view it on my pictures. I finished it last night at 12:30.

Hello Everyone

Just checking in. It's nice to see some posts on here. I'm hoping to get a Sunbonnet Sue quilt finished. I have  the blocks done but customer orders keep me busy and during the Summer I spend a lot of time out doors so getting anything finished is difficult. Now that Fall is here I won't be outside as much and will have more time to work on my projects. I need to make a quilt for my bed. My quilt is faded, thread bare and needs to be thrown out. And the cats claws are not helping.  I'm also…

Thinking back

Posted on July 12, 2019 at 6:28am 6 Comments

I'm sitting here thinking it's been 11 years since I have been on QWU. I found out about this site through a flyer that came in the mail in 2008. I joined along with many others. Each day they posted members birthday until the members got to be too many to post.  I have enjoyed viewing the the beautiful quilts of the many talented lady's on this site. And the many variations of of quilts I have seen. I was a new quilter when I joined QWU and was amazed seeing all this talent displayed.  I…

Hi, Irene!  Sorry I haven't been on here in a long time!  Decided I needed to connect back up and refresh my life with other quilters and saw your comment from back in 2014!!!  Wow, how time flies!  Have been busy, though, with some big quilts, other hobbies and activities.  Age also getting the better of me at times, but working on keeping myself in the best condition I can.  Hope you are in good health and continuing to sew.  I read your story about misplacing your phone.  Had to laugh, but the same thing happens to me all the time!  Take care, Gladys

Happy February 1st, Irene! I'm so sorry to hear about your house. It must be awful as you took care of it all those years and then other people "trash" it. People have no respect for other people's property, it seems. I do hope this other gal takes care of it, and know you probably are anxious to sell it and be done with it. Where is Bud now? I've finally reached the binding part of the Irish Chain Quilt. It came out beautifully. I will post a picture as soon as I'm done and get all the basting threads and markings off it. Also, doing some small projects - table topper for Spring and a little table runner, too. Take care of yourself and keep in touch! Hugs, Becky

Hello Irene and Happy New Year! How much snow do you have? We have a couple inches but I think New England and the south have a lot more than we do. It's cold here - down to 7 last night and only 16 right now. Supposed to warm up on Monday and next week. I've been sick (hubby, too) w/upper resp. inf. since before New Years. He's feeling better but mine is hanging on. went to docs on Monday. I'm so tired of hacking, coughing, etc. This too, shall pass - can't come too soon for me. LOL Love you, Becky

Oh Irene, I am so very sorry to hear that you have lost your dear sister. She struggled a long time from what you previously told me about her. She is now at peace with no more pain. I will say a prayer for her. Take care of yourself. Love, Becky

Irene, I wanted to give you my most sincere condolences as you sister slips nto another room.  When we see someone we love suffer it is so difficult to bare, but you now know she is at peace, out of pain and at rest after such a struggle.  I pray that the adjustment for you is a little easier knowing you are supported. Peace be your guide.

Yes I read your post and feel bad for you as you have to travel so much to see everyone. I am now going to ask if anyone would like to help me in an attempt to make the 9 purple quilts for the south Carolina  shootings that took place last year..but so far I have..3 ladies.

Please go on my face book page and see about my niece's daughter..she had a bad surgery on her head...she can't walk or feed herself, or anything else... she is 14 yrs old...how sad.

it is really hot out so my sewing time gets put off,,I really don't want to be in there except when I am finishing my UFO's - I got 6 out of 12 done,,it looks pretty good....now to give them away.!

I may end up giving a quilt to my neice that is in the hospitial. it really doesn't look good...

hope you had a great 4th of July,,we had a great one and I turned 62,,YAY..but I am still working...35 hrs a week...whew! I am tired...but so far it is still good... Dh still works and we are doing just fine,,going home back up north...to visit the grandchildren and our kids...

Be good and keep up the good work you are doing..miss seeing you on here..

So sorry, Irene, for all the heartaches you are going through. Your sister has fought a long and hard battle, but I know it still is not easy to see her in her last days. God will take care of her in his loving arms - take comfort in that she will see him soon and no more pain. Poor little baby - he is with God, too. Yes, we are looking forward to the train trip. We'll be gone a long time, so hope I don't get too homesick. Hugs to you, Becky

Oh Irene,I am so sorry about your sister and praying for her. How sad about her great-granddaughter. So sad. Had she been having any health issues since she was born? Do take care, my dear - I know you have your hands full. Love you, Becky
