Hi Sandi, Thanks for the nice compliment. The name of our shop is Bear Valley Auto Repair. I too want to get out to the shop where you teach and meet you. Like you, I don't get out to Apple Valley to often...these days especially. Hope to meet you one day soon. Have a good day. Marie
How are you doing? I must apologize for not writing back sooner. I haven't been online for awhile because of health problems but I just had to get online today to respond to your message. No, I haven't been able to finish my blocks at all. I was able to get the first two blocks cut out except for the background fabric. I hope to be able to do that this weekend if my body permits. Maybe I'll be able to start sewing on them too.
Thank you for telling me about your pets. Our miniature poodle Comet is 14 years old too. It is sad though to watch them age. He still acts like a puppy sometimes but sleeps most of the day and night. He can't hear that well either. We lost our other miniature poodle 2 years ago too. He was our Baby at 15 years old. He had diabetes and died in our bed between my husband and I from complications. It is so hard to lose them. I probably won't get another pet after Comet. It is so hard for me to care for them. I feel for Sweet Sue - does she take medicine to control the seizures? I've never seen a Yorkie Poo before - they must be adorable. Only 5 pounds! Wow. What a cute name Fatty Kneebuckle. So you have two babies Cheddar and Ginger Snap. How cute to have them grow up together.
Do you enjoy making the shop samples? It sounds like it would be fun doing so many different things like that. Inventory isn't that fun - I've been though that so many years... I used to work for a company that serviced computers and we had to count every screw at inventory times in addition to all of the other parts. Not fun. We worked 12 hour days and it took 5 days for a crew of 30 people to complete the inventory of just one building. The company had 3 buildings. But I'm sure that your inventory could be quite fun seeing all of the products that you have plus the fabrics... I assume that you work at a quilt shop since you teach sewing and quilting... I'm sorry if that's not right.
Well my body is telling me to go lay down. I hope that you have a nice weekend. Take care and write whenever you have a chance. I enjoy hearing from you.
Hi Sandra, Thanks.....It will probably be next week before I can come out...and Monday I'll try. My hubby has Dr. appts Wed & Thur this week that I want to go with him on. He was just diagnosed as diabetic...after a trip to ER on 1/31 with dizziness & numb hands. Thanks for the invite for the guild....if I can't make it this month, I'll shoot for next month. Do I need to bring anything with me if I can make it? And where did you say the meeting is? Marie
Hi Sandi, nice to meet you. I've been wanting to come check out the Fabric Garden. Didn't even know about it until just a few months ago. I am looking forward to meeting you in person. This community has really inspired me to get busy and work on all my UFO's....and there are many! It's great to talk to people from all over. What days are you at the shop? marie
Thank you so much for your help. I will go there and get the yardages. Today I finished a quilt top which I started in December, so now I'm anxious to get started here and to join in all of the fun. Can't wait for my pattern to arrive. Thanks again.
