Hey Billie, you have commented a couple of times about my Joey it is so sweet of you to do and to have him on your desktop for a bit was sweet too Like you most of these kitties and my pups are in Rainbow heaven. I went without for 2 years and now have a rescue Chihuahua he is 9 and needs a home to retire in. I love this grumpy little man he is very entertaining. Thanks for visiting.
Thank you Billie. I've made so many wonderful friends here. I am enjoying seeing all your great blocks and all your wonderful winnings from the blog drawings. Have you bought your lottery ticket yet????
Billie enjoy he was a sweetheart...my love..I understand about furbabies visiting us for a while, with all the quilting you do I can see there would not be much time left. Plus I see you on line in so many places!! but always happy to see what you have to show us. Your blog, blocks and your videos are fantastic!
I read your comment about your sewing machine eating your block, and I have to agree that it is frustrating. I use a tip that a fellow quilter gave me when I first started quilting. She said to fold a rectangle of left-over material in half so that it is about 2" by 3". Use it to sew on when you finish a seam like assembly line sewing. Then you can use scissors to cut off your block from the scrap of material behind your pressure foot, bring the block to the front of your machine and start sewing from the scrap of material right onto your block again. It works just like assembly-line sewing except that you use this scrap of folded fabric and you can avoid having to start sewing a seam from nothing. Anyway it works for me and prevents jumbled up threads that I get sometimes when I start a seam as well.
Last year was when Nashville and our city got the floods but this year we have had rain but not the bad flooding of last year. We got some much needed rain this weekend. It was refreshing, grass needs cutting again now but we really needed the rain. Did I tell you I am going to be a great grandmother? In January. She is just 18 and not married but the baby should be surrounded with love and I am sure it will all work out ok. Just gotta wait a few more wks to find out whether to get out the blue or pink materials and get to work on a quilt. Have a good Monday BillieBea, Love you girl!!
Hi Billie Bee. I am still here, at home, just hanging!!! This has been a slow process. Some days are good and some are just tougher than others. I just haven't been on the computer near as much. When I used to get on the computer the most was at night, late. Since I fell I don't do that anymore as I am usually in bed so that cut out a lot of my fb and qwu time. I am working my way back, I just don't have the fire in me that I once had to faciliate my two groups, at least they have a few flickers of life still in them, and for that I am so grateful.
I love you girlfriend, please forgive me for not being there as much but with continued prayer, I'll get back to my old self. I still haven't driven since I fell. I am a homebody anyway so I didn't stay on the go much anyway. Hope all is well with you, all the family and dgc. Hugs, Linda
Well, common first names in "our" Hinton family are George, Tollie, Edward, Hester, Dora, William, or Byrd. These have apparently been passed down through the generations. I leave geneology to my husband -- it keeps him busy and out of my hair when I'm quilting! lol
Could be! Our patricular branch of Hintons came from England in the 1700's. There were several sons emigrating about the same time. My husband and his cousin are deeply into geneaology, but I know nothing. George W. Hinton, whose portrait is looking at me right now, was my husband's great-grandfather, and came to California in 1850 from Kentucky. That's it! Now you know all I know. lol
