Hi Vera, i haven't been on here in forever...just found your comment...from April! And it's December! FYI fabric dyeing is wonderful...and you may or may not enjoy it. I personally find it inspiring to create my own cloth. Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

How are you , Friend?
I have good days & bad days, guess that goes with the territory. I have learned that I must accept what has been dealt to me , straighten my shoulders, & walk the pathway I have been given. It is not easy but I am trying.
Thank you for asking!
I see you are still doing those wonderful quilting jobs! I do so admire your talents!
I am piecing again, hand quilting Sunbonnet Sue for the G-Granddaughter. I was working on that when life suddenly changed. I need to finish her quilt.

Hello Vera,Its been a while sense Ive chatted on line , but I did add the Quilt I told you I was asked to make.I got it done and we decided to enter it in the county fair and it won a blue ribbon.I was shocked and so happy at the same time it was the best day , I also had a booth ,only sold one quilt at the fair and one at the city celebration. Selling is not easy where I live because of the eco. all but a couple of the coal mines are still operating and that is our main high paying jobs around here. i know its that way just about every where . But I still had a really good time . If you get a min check out my quilt. Happy Quilting debbie

Hi Vera, you only quilted the QOV quilt, how beautiful you did, I can do some of my own machine quilting too. Honestly not meaning to out do you it just happened, but last year in 2008 I finished 8 for the QOV, the wounded military are so deserving. Bless you!

Vera, I bookmarked the sites for the donut pin cushions and the tiny cupcake ones too. They will be on my TO DO list! Thanks again! mary

It was fun, and very quick making the fabric basket. As for addicting, I believe you! I looked through your pictures and see you have made MANY of them! Guess I better get busy to catch up!

Hi Vera, Thanks again for the link to make the little fabric basket. If you look at my pictures you'll see that I got one done! They are so cute, and go together quick and easy. I can see myself making them as gifts for friends at Christmas. Mary

I, too, am a grandmother. Isn't is great?! Your pincushions are so cute. I have trouble doing hand work anymore as I have a slight tremor so I stick to the sewing machine--a Bernina 930 that I've had for about 24 years!
Your butterfly picture is lovely. My husband is a just for fun photographer. He got a few nice pictures of butterflies in Texas on our recent visit to see 2 of our children
It's a great day in Florida as I'm sure it is in California. Carolyn

Thanks Vera, Yes, I'm very fortunate. My hubby wants to build a smaller house sometimes but I say, no! Where will I sew?? Where will i put my fabric stash! He is very ingenious when it comes to customizing things though. I'm hoping he'll build a big board for me soon... the ones you can buy do not fit my oversized rowenta ironing board. Do you know what big boards are?

Vera, I haven't heard from her since before the weekend. I'm concerned, too. I still try to send a note each day just in case she is checking in but doesn't have time to jot a note. I miss her!

Your quilts and other projects are fabulous, by the way. I've been stuck here at the computer for a couple of days trying to catch up on the medical transcription work. We were gone over the weekend and it sure makes a difference. Am hoping to get back to some quilting projects soon.

Hope your week is off to a good start. I enjoyed your "jammie day" post. I have those days, too. In fact for awhile my husband started calling me "pajama Jan" (sheepish). Working from home in the middle of nowhere has its perks! :)

Thanks Vera! I bookmarked the tutorial for the fabric basket and will add it to my "TO DO" list!!!

GOOD Morning, Miss Vera!
I was sad to read that your daughter will be leaving us folks! I hope she will carry good memories of her time spent here with us native Texans!

Hi Vera! Nice to see so many from the old site! How are you doing?

This is my main blog, click link above!

I know those baskets just lend themselves to about anything you might use, but I'm very much a person who loves pastels, ginghams, polka dots....and so I responded to those two the most. The way you put certain fabrics together... sigh. I got waylayed and haven't checked out the site you gave me with the directions so I'm going to do that now. Thanks, again, Miss Vera.
At 2:38pm on April 20, 2009, Sue Leigh said…
Thanks, Vera. I'm so glad for the directions. Now if I can find the fabrics like yours... After years of being out of the loop of sewing, I almost feel like a beginner. So wish me luck. I want to say I love your creative vision, talent and how prolific you are. You're an inspiration. Thanks again!

Dear Vera:
Thanks for responding back and reassuring me. What the secret wish of my heart is, is to either be able to buy those two baskets from you (don't kill me for daring to be an Oliver Twist today, or was it the other one who said, "Please, a little more, sir:" in the orphanage? ....or to find the instructions for the basket and the exact fabrics and buttons, etc. I think if I can't have either option, I may have to fall on my sword. Signed, Miss Needypants Sue
