Quilt With Us

How is everyone....

We have been so busy with life and retirement..its not even funny. but we love it.

 I had my big "65" birthday..and now we have been retired for 3 years already. traveling and doing things with each other has its benefits....

Hope your all sewing and quilting like mad...I keep up doing things more so in the fall/winter and in the summer we do our garden and put up food. we are suposto be getting peaches so we can get them canned.

I am now knitting socks....oh now fun that is.!! I have made 3 pair already and one pair I made for my DH..He loves them...

We are going back up north to visit our children, grandchildren and friends later on in July.

I have finished up several quilts that I started, and now I think I have almost all my UFO's finished but one. Whew!

What is everyone working on???   It seems I haven't been on here much..life has us pretty busy.

I may be teaching another lady how to quilt, and maybe do something for a local group down here that deals with children and adults..the kids put on roofs with adults supervision, and I want to do something to help besides feeding them with our church..

any Ideas? Pillowcases? bowls to hold your ice cream in.? 

I can only do something for the group we'll be having,  there will be about 12-18 kids  plus adults.. and what kind of fabric should I use?  something with a cross on it or should I do something fun.?

Its kids coming from the local churches around here...and does anyone know if Hobby Lobby would do a donation for this kind of thing.? Just wondering...

any way..We are still here..just not on here very much...If anyone is on facebook,,we are on there.

I'll try to post pictures of my things when I get them done...

have a great 4th of July!

Nice to hear from you!  It always fascinates me how different retirement is from what it sounds like it should be.  The days fill up fast!  How did we ever find time to go to work : )

Nice seeing a post from you Joanna.  With regard to your project, are you wanting to make something with those kids & adults or just make something to donate to them?  As for donations, you could call & ask the manager of Hobby Lobby or Joanns if you have one of those close by if they will donate.  They might be restricted to only donating to groups that are non-profit, but it never hurts to ask.

Hey Joanna, glad to see you posting on here and I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. I'm working on 3 quilts (my own projects) and a Kitchen Aid mixer cover for a client. I also have a couple of garments to alter so it keeps me quite busy.

Thanks for posting, Joanna.  Sounds like you are enjoying retirement - staying active and doing the things you enjoy.
