Good morning Linda, I live just east of you on interstate 80. Turn north at the Walcott truck stop and head out into the country. We live between two small towns, Dixon and Donahue. Have an acreage in the woods. Very quiet until the four wheelers come roaring down the road. Grrrrr. I garden passionately but that passionately part of it has been put on hold this year as I had my right knee replaced in May. And I'm good for only an hour out there between pain and mosquitoes.
I babysit my grandson who will be 6 in August a couple times a week. He's a joy but wears me out.
My favorite quilt shop? Hmmm Love the one at the Amana"s. But stumbled on the smaller one about a month ago," Fern Hill," Cool!! Bought some awesome fabric there. Designed by one them. Couldn't pass it up, don't know what I'll use it for and probably sits on my Visa bill still not paid for. I have a huge problem. I love fabric. Sometimes I almost can't cut into it. Anyway my machine has been in for cleaning and tuning for over a week now and I'm ready for it to be back here where it belongs. I'm going nuts without it. Should spend the day cutting into all that fabric and have it all ready to sew when the phone rings. Happy quilting. Some 41years ago we spent our first night in Newton, IA. Then headed out west. I'd like to turn off there and check the town out. Someday.

Hi Linda- You had asked me about the pillowcases for the wounded soldiers so I will tell you more! I send the homemade pillowcases to the wounded soldiers that are recuperating in the Landstuhl Hospital in Germany. This is an American hospital that has over 800 beds. Since most soldiers are life-flighted by helicopter to this hospital, they are admitted with just the clothes on their back. Therefore, they do not have any other change of clothes (e.g. underwear) or toiletry supplies (razors, shaving cream, toothbrush, comb,etc.) Several quilting friends and I have decided to add some cheer to their hospital room by sewing up bright or fun fabrics into pillowcases. Some of the fabrics are patriotic and others are just cheerful (lodge prints, rodeo prints, race car prints, fishing prints). Guess we are thinking that some of the prints will comfort these recuperating soldiers. (For example- maybe a "fishing print" pillowcase will be given to a soldier who loves to fish!) We also sew up bright fabrics into pillowcases hoping to cheer them up! So, that's pretty much the rest of my "pillowcase story"! I have been sending pillowcases the last two years- 213 one year and 189 another year. If you'd like to help out by making some pillowcases...just let me know! ;-)

By the way, have you ever thought of just tying the charity quilts you make for kids. Several friends and I also make charity quilts for babies and we tie these quilts instead of quilting them. One of my quilt friends has neighbors that don't quilt, but will help out with the tying part. So this gal has a 'quilt-tying' coffee by inviting her neighbor friends over for coffee and then they tie all morning! Lots of fun, laughter, chatter, and....the quilts get tied in the process! :-)

Hope you are enjoying this weather! (Sure isn't typical July weather for Iowa, huh?!)
Happy quilting~Marcia
