Hi there hapybren. Thanks so much for your response to my request. Irene is getting a tape of the song for me. It is a very inspiring song and afraid so much of it is true. I hope you are having a great day and quilting away!!!
Just want you to know your box of sunshine arrived today. lol It was nice and melted allot of the snow but we are hearing about a big storm coming in tomorrow. But there is one thing for sure the snow we get from here on in won't last so that is something to look forward to.
I missed CT while my computer was out having some problems fixed. I get inspiration from everyones work and get's me motivated to hurry up and finish my alterations so I can work on some of my own fun projects. It's coming into what I call my gown season. At prom time I have to alter allot of gowns. But that is where the money is for the most part. I did all occasion cakes for 30 years and the wedding cakes was my big money jobs. They were allot of work but I loved making them and everytime I see a wedding cake today my creative juices start to drip. But I had to give them up due to arthuritis in my hands and it was a good thing because when the big box stores came to town I couldn't buy the ingredients for what they sell them for.
Have a nice evening. Irene
Hapybren's, thank you for leaving the nice comment on my page. It's so nice to hear from people from other states and countries. I have been off line for a month. Just got my computer back yesterday. I sure missed my friends here on CT. Your quilts are beautiful. I have only been quilting the last 5-6 years and have only made two big quilts. I love the smaller quilted projects like sewing machine covers, tree skirts, table runners etc. I am a garment seamstress. I take in alterations but that gets boring ripping stuff apart and putting it back together but it's income so I have learned to "like" it. lol I am working on a dress, apron and bonnet to wear during our bicentennial this Aug. The guild I belong to is going to put a float in the parade decked out with treadle sewing machines and guild members dressed in period costume doing hand sewing, knitting, etc. We will also display quilts and other sewing projects of the period. I think it will be fun. I also have to make a gown for my granddaughter for her Junior prom in May. If I sat at my sewing machine from now until Christmas I wouldn't finish all the projects I have in my head to do. lol Some days my mind says go but my body say's no. (And this is one of those days) I woke up to a snow storm and at this time of year I just want it all to be gone so I need a nice bright day to get the life back into my bones. It's been such a looooooong Winter. Tomorrow is suppose to warm up and that is very encouraging. We still have a ton of snow to melt but a few warm days will take care of that and then we wait for the mud to dry up. I think I'm a mis-placed Southerner. lol I hate the cold. Do me a favor and box up some of your sunshine and ship it up to Maine. I thank you in advance and will let you know when it arrives. lol Take Care ~ Irene
Thanks for the nice comment on my page, I just checked out your pictures and see alot that I love! The girls are great! Also, love your sewing room! I gave mine up for my mom when she moved in (she's 81), but, still find room at the dining room table when I need to! I see you have my sister in your friends list, she lives in Sanford NC, and no we don't look anything alike, but, we share the same heart and love of sewing and more!
i've always been fascinated by llamas and thought I would one day like to raise them but I doubt I have the stamina to actually do it.
What a cool place for a quilt show. Isn't it interesting how universal quilting is becoming? That sounds like a really fun time.
