I wanted to give a shout out to Pam from New York for encouraging people to come back on & post to this forum.  There are so many people who used to be very active on here, but who we never hear from any more.  Always makes me wonder what happened.  I know most of the individual groups I belong to are very inactive as well.  Makes me feel sad.  I know I need to do a better job of keeping in touch as well.

I think I'm addicted!

I have really enjoyed making purses & totes.  They are a great way to use up fabrics that you just had to have, but only bought a yard of.  They are especially fun when you can make part of them using an embroidery machine.  Here is my latest.  I did the sewing motifs on my emb machine & finished the rest on my Pfaff.  The designs are from Sweet Pea (swpea.com).…

another table runner

We had a challenge on the Piece Around the World group to see how many scraps we could use in 1 project.  We had to use a minimum of 40, which sounds like a lot, but really isn't.  We also had to have half square triangles be the main design element.  This was a fun challenge to do.  I looked through all my books & found this table runner in the Big Book of Table Toppers by Martingale.  It is called Window Pane.  Mine has 69 fabrics in it including the background fabric.…

my latest finish

My husband & I are going to New Orleans next month to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary, which also falls on Father's Day.  I wanted either a purse or a tote that was bright & cheery to take along so I went through my stash & found these 2 fabrics.  The tote is the Candice tote by Lazy Girl designs.  As you can see in the 2nd picture, the front is also a pocket.  I like to carry my credit cards & cash in those little zippered pouches so I made one of those to match.…

Happy National Quilting Day

Have you all been quilting today?  I have been making labels that will go on the backs of Quilts of Valor quilts.  I was going to baste a quilt, but didn't have the right size batting & didn't want to cut into a larger one.  I should just order 60" Quilters Dream cotton by the case as that is my favorite size as I can machine quilt them with no problem.

Janet,  That's so nice!  It would be well worth the money, but I'm afraid I'll have to let it go to someone else this time.  

Hope all is well.  You are finishing up some great projects.  It should motivate me to keep moving on mine.

I'd love to send you a block. Thank you for doing this.

Janet, of course I'll participate! Are you saying you need a 6.5" block or anything between 6 and 12"?

It's too easy to confuse me, woman!!

Janet, 

The grandsons are doing well.  They are so fun!  The oldest is 4, the one that was a micro premie is going to be 2 in July and is a beefy little guy, and the latest one is 9 months old and walking already.  I've been shopping my stash for the baby quilts, and that has been fun.  It feels good to use up (or at least make an attempt) what I have.  Since I never bought much yardage of any one fabric, it forces me to be creative with patterns and borders.  Something that doesn't come easily to me.  I love seeing your finished projects.  That HAS to feel so good!

Happy New Year!  We have had around 10" snow and subzero temps.  It always seems colder when the when blows.  Keep warm!  Great time to quilt.  (Well, I guess anytime is a great time to quilt...)  :D

Janet, I posted a picture of GS#2 (the preemie who is now 18 months) on the main page under the GS#3 post.  He's doing really well.  Seems to be on track or ahead developmentally and has no health or learning issues.  Just a robust, healthy little guy, for which we are very thankful.  

I'm working on making apple butter from applesauce today.  It is a crock pot recipe.  The apples we use (from a neighbor's tree) seem to be very sweet, so I was glad to find a recipe that doesn't add extra sugar.  I'm hoping it turns out well (first time using this method/recipe) so I can use it for gifts.

Janet, I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the case with Bud. If they did it would be nice to have let me know. In Bud's POA Bud has me as his guardian. But the hold up was or is that his doctor maintains that Bud is capable of making his own decision on whether he wants to go with Barbara. I talked with his doctor the other day when I was visiting Bud and he had to admit Bud's mind is getting worse. This should never have happened. This Barbara had not seen him in the 20 years that he has been with me so all her motive was is to get his money. Bud said to me the other day, "why don't you call your mother and have her watch the kids, so we can go out and have a meal together" My mother has been dead for 11 years and Bud and I never had any kids together so that's and example of how his mind is.
