Quilt With Us

Pam/NY's Blog (705)

Hello...been traveling!

We headed out two weeks ago meandering down to New Orleans to a conference. We both like civil war history so decided to visit some of the military parks. We started at Chattanooga at Lookout MT. Amazes us how they fought that battle on a mountain. We went downtown,  which is on TN river and a huge regatta was taking place. There were thousands there. Travelled onto Vicksburg, MS. Beautiful area with the gorgeous Antebellum homes. We took a swamp boat tour in Lafayette, LA. Always thought…

Follow up on a gift...

I posted that I was gifting our family doctor of 40 years with a quilt. We received such a heartfelt thank you letter from him. He is in his early 70s...like all of us, you start out with such great enthusiasm in your first career. Soon to discover that managing a family practice is hard enough, but the staff issues make it more difficult. He finally has the best staff he has ever had and finds that he has fallen back in love with medicine...

I see that in my hubby's career...once you…

Hello...

We have moved back to the house. Will do long weekends at the lake. It definitely turned cooler. The leaves are turning after this weekend with frost...they will really turn. Have a few projects in mind...have been ask to teach a church group to make pillowcases for the children's hospital and the local nursing home. The first thing will be to oil and clean their machines! They looked like deer in headlights when I asked the last time they cleaned their machines! lol I bought several packs…

Finally, I found the last stitch...

I have been stitching this for the past year. It always feels so good to take that last stitch! 

This is a gift to our family doctor. He has given us such great care for the past 40 years. Our son and family also go to him. He has been a great friend and asset to our community. He and his wife will greatly appreciate it.…

Winner of NYS Fair

This is an amazing quilt and truly deserved the win! Over 5000 pieces!!!! Years ago, someone stoled a quilt from the show. Just walked out the back door. Never did recover it...

This was well guarded and seemed like there were more entries this year. Always fun to see the handiwork of all ages!…

Summer is winding down...

As much as we love fresh corn, hardy mums and The NY State fair it means summer is ending.  It's a special Labor Day weekend for our family. Our parents will have been married 70 years! They are both 88 and doing great. They don't travel like they use to... but always manage to stay busy. They have subscribed to their hometown paper in Schuyler, NE for 70 years. This is the announcement, I placed to surprise them...the year should be 49, they assured me it has been corrected!

The…

Good Morning...

How much company can one house have in one week? It has been nonstop for the entire month...so, there wasn't any quilting going on! I did score two tops for a friend. I have two in the works so passed on them. We went to Rutland Vermont to a wedding. What a beautiful area. There is a small Norman Rockwell museum that we visited. Amazing man. When we got to the section of 1950, we started recognizing Saturday Evening Post covers. Lots of memories. We also went to the original Vermont Country…

Success of a website depends on PARTICIPATION

We have been so fortunate to have a place to share and learn new things about our passion. We're all busy, but take some time to participate and help make this the site it use to be. This is not just about quilting, it is about sharing...so let's see some new faces and projects. Have a great day!

A huge Thank You to Connecting Threads for allowing us all these years to share!

I found it...my last UFO

How about that! I promised myself I wasn't starting another project until all UFOs were in an active stage. I have one at the lake that I'm hand quilting and one here at the house that I'm hand quilting. This one I'm machine quilting for a retirement gift. She has been Gary's right hand lady...she will be greatly missed. 

Since summer is upon us...I'll end with this:…

Happy Springtime...

The best part of Spring is all the pretty flowers! Luckily, we don't have allergies, so I have fresh flowers all the time. We had a very nice Easter with our son and his family! They surprised the boys with tickets to the first home Michigan game. As you can see, they are huge fans! I finished the tree skirt for a wedding gift in July. I am so glad to have that off the list. This week will be cleaning windows and screens now the weather is nicer. …
