About Me
I have sewed, knitted and crafted most of my life. I have been a serious quilter for 30 years. I taught music full time until this past June. I'm now retired (early) and am looking for my "land legs". I'll get there and eventually make more time for quilting.
My favorites are batiks, 30's repros and Asian fabrics. I can't get enough.

I have 6 grandchildren, so I can always find a project for one of them.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, general sewing, knitting
My pets are awesome!
Yellow Tabby, "Captain Finn"; Golden Retriever, Darby

From Manitoba, I have a 6yr old yellow tabby, real joy to have around. Weather as we both know changes daily.. What you think of my Asian cotton print found in thrift shop.  A challenge to make something out of this print.

Good morning from UK, we have been having a heat wave here, very unusual for us and I have been doing some hand quilting in the Garden quite wonderful.  I am not a wonderful quilter and not a fast worker, but I do so enjoy it.  I have some material that has the paper pieced lines on it, I suppose it is instead of the paper and will give the block a little firmness, have you ever used that, if so any comments or tsp would be helpful.  Many thanks in advance of chatting again.

I see that Tampico is in Northern Illinois.  Bloomington is more in my neck of the woods.   My SIL took me to a quilt shop in Bloomington.  It was crazy.  I've never seen so much fabric in one place.  It looked really disorganized, but it was really organized.  I just can't remember the name of the store.

Where are you from in Illinois?

Also, I apologize that I did not respond to your post on my page last year. I have email notifications turned off and I don't check my page very often. The quilt store that I went to is in Rochester Illinois. It was wonderful.

And -I grew up in Milmine, Illinois. Small farming community outside of Monticello Illinois.

Whew!  Lana, I had to go back to February 6th to find out if it was you who sewed on the Featherweight or not <LOL>  Anyway, I have a question for you.  How often do you oil and how often do you lubricate?  I'd forgotten completely how many spots there are to oil on these old machines.  Talk about throwing me back 50 yrs or so <BG>.  I got my machine back from my repairman and he was thrilled that I'd received such a good one.  I have to look for an old 301 to replace the hook eventually, but at the moment it sews like a dream.  And, fyi, it's from 1948 made in the USA.  I've been puttin the blocks together for one of Bonnie Hunter's quilts, and it occurred to me that I had been working for 3 straight days on this quilt and then wondered how often I should clean and oil it.  On my Pfaff, I oil every bobbin change, but then it's a one-drop oiling too.  Let me know, if you wouldn't mind, how often you do your Featherweights please.

I agree

I haven't posted in oh, so long. Like Deb, I'm almost (I say almost) embarrassed to post.

As I've been reading to catch up, I found the post about sharing and even though it's a bit late in coming, I just want to say that we need to continue.

I do enjoy this site and all of your posts. I have to agree with Pam and all the others that sharing our personal stories and anecdotes are what make us the social animals that we are. Please keep sharing. We are quilters, but we…

Marnie, the event of the Edmund Fitzgerald is one of those that seems to stick in my memory. I can remember that night. Living in Southern MN, we were experiencing similar weather. It was early for November storms. I can remember the news and the days that followed.

Not so long ago, I used the song by Lightfoot as an example of a ballad while teaching 8th grade music appreciation. I was able to connect a little American history to music and share a major event first hand, if you… Continue

Love the pillows

Karen, the pillows are so pretty. The sampler has that fresh look that goes so well with summer.
I'd love to be entered in the drawing.

National Quilting Day

I won't be quilting on NQD. Boo hoo. We are celebrating my DGS's 6th birthday with a pool party. That will pretty much take the whole day with preparations, etc. But....it is a great chance for cousins to have a play day together and that's always the best fun.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I have to echo the thoughts of many of you. This site has been just wonderful this past year. I'm looking forward to many more. My days always have to include visiting the CT site and reading the blogs.
My journey here started with Southern Stars and has branched out to several other groups. I'm so happy that Southern Stars caught my eye and led me to all of you. Have a wonderful and prosperous new year, everyone.
