Sad news about Suzanne L/WA

Posted on May 15, 2016 at 8:42pm 9 Comments

I'm very sad to report that one our our QWU friends was killed yesterday in a head-on collision.  Here's the article:  http://www.tri-cityherald.com/news/local/crime/article77772542.html

I never met Suzanne in person, but we met here on Quilt with Us and we were in several groups together.  We became Facebook friends and I got to know her better.  Besides being a quilter, she was a huge lover of animals…


Happy New Year!

I've been absent for awhile, sorry!  But I've just wrapped a week+ vacation during the holiday, when work closes down between the holidays.  It's such a nice time to be off.  After all the usual family and friend holiday stuff, I started a brand new project!  It's called Whisper and it's a thousand pyramid quilt, designed by my friend Mary Fons.  I started cutting the day after Christmas:…


Feliz Navidad Everyone

I'm in Ecuador, on vacation with my daughter, who has been an exchange student here for the last semester.  We just spent the last week in the Galapagos and now are back with her host mom, Margarita for Christmas.  Today is the big celebration day here and we've been cooking for hours, preparing to go to a family home for the feast and gift opening.  Of course I made a quilt for Margarita - can't wait to see her open it tonight!…


I've been busy!

As many of you know, I now work for Martingale, home of That Patchwork Place.  I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been able to find another job in this industry and to continue working with creative quilters, knitters and crocheters. 

It's been many months of work, but this week we launched a brand new website and blog.  You might recognize me as …

Hello-It was so great to hear from you...busy time of the year, the days just seem to fly by. We have been traveling a lot with Gary's work. Enjoy it to a point! lol Thanksgiving was fun with the two gdsons. Pretty soon they'll be too big to want to hang around with the old people, so take advantage of every moment. Glad to hear things are going well...have a great holiday!

Oh yes new projects seem to do that but I will persevere.

Good luck. That is quite a list but what a good idea. Can I copy that idea? Maybe if I see it in writing it will give me more motivation to get them done or it will just scare me haha

Yeah it seems that people are starting to ask my name..before it was always just a screen name and I have always signed on as betweens and now people are more comfortable with the internet they like the first name basis...

I can`t believe they now have 31,500 members on this site...they are very close to TQS (the quilt show)!

What a great list of UFO`s it is an excellent idea. I think I will do the same and then I will be able to cross them off. It is so easy to get sidetrack.

Life is good as to be expected we have had a perfect summer weather wise that is for the people that like hot and sunny, now i hope for our winter we get snowing and blowing we need good quilting weather too.

I see that you are really enjoying Martindale so glad that you landed a great job your tutorials and energy is always wonderful!!! thanks for visiting of course always glad to hear from you Karenthequilter..btw I am Deb..LOL

Surprise! Good morning from Delburne Alberta.WOW it has been so long since we chatted. I still remember the beautiful picture you sent me of a lovely flower when I was complaining about our cold weather one day.Hope all is well with you. A great deal has happened here but we have survived. I bought a new Janome Memory Craft 11000 a couple of weeks ago and am loving it. Miss you.
