Born and raised in Ohio, lived in Michigan, Indiana & Kentucky, also. I have lived in Washington state since 2005. My adult children are scattered across the country, so I fill my empty nest with two rescued rat terriers.
Hi Sandra, where did you live when in Ohio? So glad to meet you. Do you ever get back this way? Did you join Ohio quilters? This weekend we are in Michigan visiting our son and family. Looking forward to being friends here.
Hi Sandra, I am glad to have a new friend in my life..I see you are also friends with Carolyn and BJ..so am I!..and you live in Washington State. I DID TOO..In Bonnie Lake, Wash..in the foothills of Mount. Rainer!..Oh, I just loved it there!..my son and his family live in Puywallup, Washington..
Now we live in the high Calif Desert..not where I want to be..but where I need to be right now..we are living with our daughter and her college girls..My DH has Prostate Cancer and Alzheimer's so that is why we are there, so they can help me with John.
I am recovering from a fall, so it is good that I am here with my Julie..Have you been apart of Quilt with us, for ever long?..I am certainly having a good time getting to know all the ladies
One of the groups that I have really enjoyed are the Newbies..very friendly ladies..please feel free to come and visit our group!..we have just started the Birthday Club..we exchange birthday cards and fat quarters.!..Fun!..we met every morning for coffee at the kitchen table ( on line, of course) to chat and see how everyone is doing! Please, come by anytime!...Kathy
Sandra, nice to meet you. I really like your quilts, especially the Jewel Box quilt. You do such nice work.
Washington is so beautiful. My mom's family is from the Tacoma area and I always looked forward to going to see them every year.
When you said you purchased my book are you talking about The Guild in the Granary? If so I hope you enjoy it. I've parted company with the other two authors but they are going to release a sequel to The Guild titled Timeless Star under the author name of Lynn Thompson.
Good to meet you Sandra.. this is a great place to share.. I've been away for a while. We had 90 acres and just recently sold it and moved into Spokane..so we are unpacking and adjusting to the city life. I have back issues so spend a lot of time periodically with my physical therapist in a warm pool and when I am not with her, I'm practicing what she showed me..at the YMCA pool.. Once I get my back well again (moving trashed me) I'll be quilting again, but right now I am doing English paper piecing on my lap on the couch.
I love your picture with Eleanor Burns..one of my local friends saw her at a class in Kentucky recently.. she loved the fact that Eleanor was so down to earth.
Welcome to the site..thanks for friending me..we have a lot in common..lol.
Welcome...Looking forward to getting to know you. You'll love all the wonderful ladies here and they have such a way of making you feel special. I am in Moses Lake, WA and love the Northwest. I've been away from QWU a while but plan on getting back into it in the next few days. (had some crazy medical issues)
Welcome to Kennewick, Sandra! I'd like to extend an invitation to join me and some quilting friends for a "mini-retreat" without leaving town. I'm done teaching June 6th and summer school won't be needing the room until Tuesday after that. So, my friends and I are sewing Friday, Jun7-Sunday, Jun9 in my classroom. We can leave our machines, ironing boards, cutting mats, everything all set up since I can lock the door. There's a coffee pot, an electric water kettle, a small fridge, and a small microwave. You are welcome to join us. Or at least, join me....I'm not sure how many other sewers will be there, but it will be a small group. :-)
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
