Sending sunny skies your way...

Hope everyone is staying busy and warm. We have had a couple of cold days for here, but I still went swimming. Wanted to send some pictures of the gorgeous flowers from the yard. The picture of the ground owls are from our yard.They are protected...if, you see one, put a fence around the area and build a little perch for them to sit on. Gary gets a good hissing at every morning. We had friends in over the weekend. Went to a 50-60s cabaret show. We did a lot of dancing and table singing.…

We made it...

We left NY on Wednesday am. Gary was feeling funky, but insisted on leaving because that storm was moving in the next day. He rallied until just north of DC. Then, chills and fever hit. I took over the driving...after 45 years the ole boy had to turn it over to me. I don't think he thought I'd make good time. We drove 10 hours and got down into NC. His temp broke during the night and we made it to Daytona beach. We always start the winter trip there. Same hotel room with the doors open to…

Good news...bad news...

On Christmas Eve day all of our bank accounts were frozen. Somebody tried to drain all accounts. We had gotten an email asking if we made a charge of 44.31 in Miami. I've had credit cards hacked before, but never a debit card. We absolutely never use it other than to use the ATM at our bank. So, this is how good they are getting...the bank manager read everything on my phone...looked at her computer and said...I don't think you've actually been compromised until she saw a phone number that…

It's Jimmy Buffet day...

Every winter, I plan a Jimmy Buffet evening...the snow is blowing, wind is howling, and it's freezing cold! Today is the day. Making potato salad, devil eggs, baked beans, hamburgs, and hot dogs! Beer is being iced... Buffet music blaring... Turn the furnace up and pretend we are at the lake house! It also breaks the tension of the holidays...the fun part is our family and friends love this, but never know when it's going to happen. All I do is send a buffet song to their phones and they…

Last project for gifting...

My gift to family and friends are bulky scarfs. Every time I wear mine, someone asks where I got it. On a cold windy day, they sure keep you warm. Hope everyone is winding down...two weeks and counting!!! Santa"s helpers are busy!

Quilt found it's way back home...

I made this quilt for my sister more than 20 years ago. She mostly used it to hang off her loft railing. She has decided to retire in Costa Rica, so hard decisions on what to take. Quilts are not essential. She sent it back with a note saying...thanks for the loan, but we know this belongs in your home! …

Finished all my UFOs

It is such a good feeling to have finished all my unfinished projects. I will try to not let that happen again. This is a top that my aunt sent to me years ago. Great hand piecing. I machined quilted it only because I want to give it as a gift. It was a nice size 76x76. No…

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!
