Hi Rhonda, Madison is a great place to be! I lived there 10 yrs. How perfect you live right by Stitchers Crossing. There's a group Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists that meets on the west side, if you haven't already found them. I really enjoyed this group when I lived there.
I wish I could write like you do. How could I tell students to write like you do with interest that holds you to the end? I got to sub-teach in 9th grade English class in March. I read many papers with a "F" given by the teacher and they did not understand why such a low grade. ( I always felt that way too.) Many were rather dull to read. Any "tips".
Rhonda, I love your new profile. You look great. How did you make out in the bake off? I don't know how you keep up with the cooking, sewing, writing and traveling and everything else thats on your plate. Your like the energizer bunny.
Believe me I know how difficult it can be creating a novel. I have spent about 2 1/2 years restoring a novel that I had written back in 1997. But, in restoring it, I've found that it's a better read. Keep writing, I've been enjoying reading it.
Hi Rhonda... I'm sure our guild would love to have you come up, but we're a small guld and I know it's not in our budget. That's why I said that if you or Mr Man Cave found out you'd be in our area, we'd be glad to 'kidnap' you (and 'force' you to visit our local shops :). )
Good luck with your endevor.. hope you find lots of 'test hamsters' - really wish we could be one of them - just not to be at this point in time.
I've been quilting for over 30 years... started making the baby quilts that were tied years ago .. they were quick and easy and I fancied them up with prairie points and it was fun... one young lady is having her own baby next month and I'm trying to duplicate (sort of) her baby quilt for her baby girl... these days they almost always know what sex the baby will be... anyway, I'm looking for ideas... I have most of the similar fabric that I apparently used 25 years ago... pink gingham on the bottom, rainbows on the top and will make prairie points with eyelet... I live in the Yukon... Canada's Northern left hand corner... right next to Alaska... cheers, Betty
Just happened to run across Ch 9 before I go work on some blocks. Is there a way to read old entries from the Roseville blog? That would make a great "addition" to a book if you ever publish, kind of as sub-chapters if there is such a monster.
