I haven't posted here for awhile, mostly because I haven't been sewing much.  Partially because I've been super busy (playing and working and travel), but mostly because my sewing room was such a mess.  Now, I know you're thinking your room is a mess too, but this was bad.  Really bad.  Last Fall I went on two different quilting retreats, had a blast.  But when I returned, I just dumped everything into "the room".  Now this room was already bad, because it's much much smaller than my…

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.

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.
