I really appreciate you getting back with me. When you talk almost daily and then you don't hear from someone for months, you do begin to worry(especially at my age). I am glad to hear that Maria did have her surgery and that she is doing better? I am saddened to hear that your hubs lost his job. It is so hard for anyone to make it today. You get your life going and then someone mixes it all up and your ends that you thought were getting closer are suddenly pushed so far apart there is no way. I hurt for you to hear you might lose your home in Ga. but I understand you were more at home in "sweet home Alabama". I also know what a collection of things we can accumulate in a certain period of time. Being the quilters that we are, I would dare to say tthat one truckload was probably all your sewing equipment. I sure do hope you don't have to wait too long on the new job to appear.
Thanks for getting back with me and when can keep me posted on your situation. If you can talk to Maria, Please tell her I was thinking about her and I would love to hear from her. I will close here and hope to chat with you later. Thanks
Beverly , I have not heard from you or Maria Carroll in a long time and was worried about the both of you. I understood that you were closer to her than anyone else so I therefore thought that I might get an update on her and the surgeries she was preparing to have. If you know anything at all,I would appreciate it if you would cantact me to let me hear.
Hi Beverly, Thanks for answering back. I am so glad to hear that you are now cancer free! I know how hard it is to get back on your feet after all the cancer treatments and then having lasting side effects. You have gone thru so much more than I have. My breast cancer was stage 3B and had spread to lymphnodes. So my treatment was very aggressive. I count my blessing every day!
I can't believe that your hubby has taken up quilting! I can't even picture mine doing that!! He would get very frustrated and it definately wouldn't be a pretty sight!!
Sorry about the wrong word in my last note. Realize was suppose to be relieve!! That chemo brain kicks in at the strangest times! Have a great day, Joan :)
Hi Beverly, Read that you are a cancer survivor, twice. I am also a cancer survivor and have just reached my 5 year mark. I am active in the American Cancer Society to help raise funds for reasearch. Volunteering with this program is my way of giving back. I hope that you can continue to quilt. I know that it helps me realize stress! Joan :)
LOL!!! My cats wont do that I am sure of it. And as far as my stitches, I have played and there is a stippling stitch. More than likely I will be using it on hubby's quilt! Happy Quilting my dear friend, and it is always nice to have others around that are understanding!! ~Em
Hi Hun! Thanks for all the support and confidence! I have found something that has definitely helped me cope so to speak. If you get a chance read my blog from today, it should make you laugh!!! Sometimes we are the people that are given the issues are the ones that can deal with it. We have been given a curse and a gift. The curse is that we are miserable sometimes. The gift is we are strong enough to handle it and make others make along the way!
Hi Beverly, We will have to meet when you get moved to Asheville! Where is your husband working here? Mine works for the USFS at the Research Station across from UNCA. There's a great quilt shop here too, so you will enjoy checking that out. It's really a beautiful area to live in!
Sorry for the delay in responding. We were in Texas. The long arm was delivered by the dealer I bought it through. There was a fee of course. My son loves doing the long arm. Dh hasn't tried yet, but he looks over my shoulder so to speak.
How was the Grand Canyon?
I love what you call your DH. Your hand quilting is beautiful. Thank you for the complements. I want to get some more of my quilts up in the next few days. I had to order that book you showed. I have lots of batiks and need to start using them.Can't wait for the book to get here. Have fun on your trip and I can't wait to see what you plan to use your fabric on. Have a great day Lori
Reggie (Tall & Handsome or T & H in my blogs) just celebrated 5 years on Dec 30th. I have a 28 year old son from a previous marriage and T & H has a 36 year old daughter from a previous marriage who has given him 2 grand-kids.
I machine piece, hand appliqué and hand quilt, although I am teaching T & H to quilt at the present. He has the burning desire to learn to machine quilt, so I'm sure I'll pick it up, too ;-)
Thank you for making me a friend on the Quilt With Us site. I'm new to all this stuff and look forward to making new friends. I'm married-infact today is our 29 and 1/2 year anniversary. Have a 41 yr. old daughter and
our 22 year old adopted daughter who is multiply handicap. She brings us great joy-even though at times very challenging. I love pretty much all aspects of quilting-just wish I had more hours in a day to get all the ideas in my head done for real. Do you prefer machine pieceing or hand?
I like to do both but machine for the quickness of getting things accomplished. I do love hand projects for the waiting at dr. appts and such. I enjoyed seeing all the photos of your work-really beautiful. I love working with Christmas fabric alot. I hope to some day be able to put my photos on the site too. Have a great day. take care, MaryLou
Hey Bev, just wanted to let you know how much your call meant to me. You made me laugh and didn't criticize. You are a true friend. Love ya dearly! OH and I haven't forgotten about that book. I'll go find it and email you the name and writter. Promise!
The long arm is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. Really?! Your TDH wants to have one too? LOL my dh watched the into DVD with me and said he might have to try it out too. It looks like it would be theraputic. =)
