Happy National Quilting Day

Posted on March 18, 2017 at 5:32pm 5 Comments

If you ask my husband, he will tell you that I consider every day to be quilting day, but this is the official National Quilting Day.  I went on a road trip with 3 friends to Warsaw, MO, which is a small town north of Springfield where we visited 3 stores where we all made sure to support the local economy.  Then we went to this bar-b-que restaurant that has probably been there since the 1940's.  Had wonderful food!  All in all a fabulous way to spend a sunny Saturday in March.

A few years ago I hosted a swap with the Machine Embroidery Buddies group & chose owls as the theme.  Eight of us participated so I ended up making 2 blocks in order to have enough for a wallhanging.  I made the block that is the center of the 1st row and the block of the owl wearing overalls in the bottom row.  After all if you live in farm country in Missouri, you need an owl that wears overalls right?!  It will hang in my newly repainted office once I get a new curtain rod to hang it…

I have not been to this show since the year 2000, but after seeing these pics, I sure wish I could have gone this year!  Wow, these are some gorgeous quilts.  I do have to say that my favorites are the whole cloth quilts though.

Barbara posted an interesting blog post the other day that has really hit home for me.

http://barbarabrackman.blogspot.com/2016/12/happy-new-year.html

I expressed concern about the quilting community when the price of quilt shop quality fabric jumped from about $8.00 per yard to $10.00 a few years ago.  Now it averages about $12.00 per yard.  The cost of a spool of 100% cotton thread…

Happy New Year

Posted on December 31, 2016 at 8:15am 7 Comments

I wanted to take a minute & wish everyone a very happy and safe 2017.  This past year has had its challenges for many of us, but to be honest, that is life.  It ebbs and it flows.  I managed to reach my goal of getting the vast majority of my unquilted tops quilted, bound and labeled along with some projects I started & finished this year so I'm grateful to have been able to do that.  My goal for next year is to get out a project I started piecing or appliquing, but never finished…

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.

After this last trip to the hospital, I know that the assisted living place is not healthy.  They found me to be both anemic and very malnourished, which I'm trying to turn around while I'm in rehab.  Too bad this is a nursing home...I would love to stay here.

Once a person gets Cellulitis, we are prone to get it more often than most.  As long as you know what to look for, you can catch it in the early stages.

Janet so sorry to hear about your DIL. I will be praying for her.  As we are all aware, cancer is a terrible disease and the treatments have side effects. My sister has lost her taste, and has neuropathy in her hands from it. Plus diarrhea  and a bunch of other ailments.  I will pray that she will recover from it. Many do.

As for Bud and the phone, they aren't allowed to keep it from him. But he don't call that much if he knows I'm home.  He panics when he calls and I'm not here even though I tell him where I'm going.  His dementia he can't remember half of what I tell him.  Sometimes I just shut off the answering machine. But most of the time I forget to do that.

Morning Janet,

Bud is about the same.  I took a boiled dinner over to my sister's last night and had supper with her and her caretaker. I had 25 calls on the answering machine when I got home.  Insanity runs in his mothers family and his actions indicate he inherited it.  He panic's if he can't reach me and will keep re-dialing if I don't answer.  You can hear the anger and fear in his voice when he is leaving his messages.  Even though frustrating for me it must be awful for him to be like that.

Janet tell your friend who is downsizing that you take charity. lol  I have the last load of fabric in the dryer.  I have been washing since 7:30 this morning. It is now 1:30.  My first load the washer sprung a leak.  While the men were fixing it I had to go up to the next unit.  (4 apartments to each unit) to wash.  I hung as much as I could on the line but used the dryer for the fabric.  I did bedding, my regular wash and bedroom mats.  Now I'm thinking I could have saved some for tomorrow. You know, hind sight.

Thanks Janet for the web page for the fold and stitch pattern.  I took a short peek and it looks like a great site.  I just can't resist a cute pattern.

Thank you for the spam heads up, Janet! We have removed the inappropriate posts.

Thanks, Janet!  it felt good to finish that wedding quilt - and the blue china plate quilt.  I feel like I can move on to other projects.  I've been stalled out for so long, hopefully this will motivate me to finish those other projects that are waiting patiently in bins.
