About Me
I'm a 70 year old retired widow, living by myself. I have 3 grown children, 2 girls and 1 son. Love all aspects of quilting. Also enjoy being at home and taking retirement seriously, ha! I have 1 horse and am trying to get myself back into quilting.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, embroidery
My pets are awesome!
1 horse named Chigger, 1 male dog named Scrappy

Scrappy

I rescued a male dog today from the Sherman Animal Shelter. He is a cutie and was already named Scrappy, which is fitting for a quilter. He is a very sweet, loving and well mannered little dog. Don't know how he became a stray but he is adorable. He'd already been neutered and you can tell he has been a house dog, so someone sometime gave him a good home.

Hi Jackie,

I am just trying to catch up on all my mail as I have had a heart attach and am doing quite well now so can get back at it.

Sorry for taking so long but here I am.

We lived in Forney Texas for 10 years and just moved back to Canada and am enjoying it a lot.

Where is Savoy? It does not ring any bells.

Are  you sewing the  2016 Mystery quilt? I am going to do it but will probably be behind (as usual) but it looks like a nice one. I have not been quilting long but really enjoy it.I sure like the the New Pretty Roses Fabric. Do you?

well here it is time to start dinner so I will close for now but did want to say "hi"

Jackie, so sorry for your loss...doubly difficult during the holidays.  You have wonderful memories, I'm sure, of good times shared.  I'm an only child.  A plus that I don't have to feel the pain of losing a sibling, but on the other hand, a minus that I never got to experience the joys of sibling rivalry!  Let the memories heal your heart.

Since our last note, I am now retired and we are still working on our cabin.  The dream of having my own sewing space is getting closer to being a reality!  We are hoping to be in by Easter.

I am watching the Iowa/ Iowa St basketball game on tv...a BIG rivalry here.

Merry Christmas!  Nice to hear from you again, Jackie!

I see you've been 'visiting' again. It's so much fun to see others and be inspired from what they are making and where they live. What an awesome diversity we have the privilege of viewing both in quilting and scenery on this site. Hope you are doing well and getting ready for Christmas. We have joined the 'retired' group this year. So far we've not been disappointed and have found ourselves busier now than before. We were warned about this aspect of retirement.

Thank you for your comments on my pictures. It is so much fun to look at what others are doing as well as being able to see photos from different areas of our wonderful country.  Hope you have been able to get to quilting again and look forward to seeing what you've created.

Thank you Jackie for taking the time to look at my quilts. I do not sell them. A lot of them I have donated to help with the APL, Dog Pound or local Rescue. The rest are family quilts. I have not been on this site in about 4 years. I think it is time to come back.

Just saw your friend request today.  Have been without internet for several months.  Nice to meet you.  How on earth did you find me?

I know what you mean about the fabric.  I have been trying to organize my sewing room for past three weeks - trying to put printed off patterns in binders, just get stuff put away in its own place and I am still not done!

Thanks, Jackie!  Actually I had one of those USA state panels - I enlarged each state to like 200% and then again until I got them the size I wanted.  The State flower fabrics are from Suzan Ellis State Flower Collection (she used to have Quilts and Other Comforts) but the business is no longer around - They are all Northcott fabrics and she would have an assortment out every 4-6 months so it took quite a while to get all the fabrics collected to make the quilt.  It is about 84"W and 80" Ll.  I tried to sell it on eBay once but didn't even get a nibble.  It looks ridiculous on a bed but when we moved in 2005- I have a perfect entry way where it hangs.  So glad i didn't sell it.

The states are all "leaded" with iron on black 1/4" fusible binding and I stitched it down after fusing it.  Each state has a small label (compliments of the "Greetings from _____" stamps from the USPS.  It gives the name of the state, the state flower, bird, tree, capital, and date they became a state.  Just to make it more challenging LOL - the pinwheels on the top and bottom are in chronological order as to the date they were accepted into the Union as a state. Alaska and Hawaii are on the lower left hand corner.

Anyway, thanks for asking.  I love your doggies name.  We had to have our Pete dog put down a year or so ago and then our 17 year old kitty had to be put down last July.  I miss them so much.

Well, Hello to you, too, Jackie!  Are you a Jacqueline/Jaclyn?  I'm a Jacqueline and since my last name is Orton, I like using Jackie O as my 'name'.  I will be retiring soon...26 days to be exact!  I'm 60, but I've worked at the same job for almost 39 years so decided to call it good.  Hubby and I are building a new house, 'sew' I will have my own designated sewing room.  I'm sew excited!  If my husband can't find me, he'll know where to look! I met EB when she was at the Des Moines AQS show a couple of years ago.  I live just south of Winterset, IA...home of 'Fons & Porter'!  Liz moved south a few years ago, but Mary Ann still lives in town.  Nice to meet you.  Get back to quilting so you can post some pictures!

My husband's walker is a paint, black and white.  My daily rider is a white roan.  He's a beauty, and such a love!
