Hi, Kathleen! I wanted to be sure you knew I had corrected my blog post. Rebecca's flamingo was found here. I misunderstood when she was talking about it. I guess I was concentrating on getting a good photo. She says that while she loves the images from this website, she doesn't use their technique.
Following is a comment I posted on FB. I was fishing to see if anyone might be interested in a quilt retreat or something. Several definites and several it depends so far. Just want you to know you're included. I don't want to discuss it on Gifty because MSQC and CT are competitors and it doesn't seem right. You could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk about it.
Okay, I'm going to raise an issue we've mentioned over the years. And that is getting together for a quilt retreat. Or just getting together for the sake of getting together. Anyone interested? I'm thinking sometime next year--spring or summer? Someplace easy for most of us to get to, or someplace someone can't get away from? At one time several people mentioned Hamilton, MO. Since FB and CT aren't connected we could talk about it here with no disloyalty to QWU.
So, if anyone is interested please leave a comment and we can talk further. There must be a way to set up a secondary news feed.
I notice you r in Buffalo, a few years ago we flew into Buffalo and took the am track down the eastern corridor getting off, exploring as we travelled down to florida, we had an amazing time, just wonderful.
Thanks for adding me as a friend. I have been finishing up quilts lately that have been in the works for several years. I guess I like the starting and planning better than the finishing. By the end of August I plan to have 5 quilting projects done. I am supposed to get my Lasting Legacy back this coming week. Then will only have to do the binding. I am NOT going to start any more quilts until these are ALL done. Not to say I won't do the things in Gifty group. But those should finish up quickly.
This treadle machine was my paternal grandmother's. It needs repaired so we just use it as a piece of furniture. Usually it's in front or the living room window so kitty can sit on it and look outside. My maternal grandmother had a sewing machine in a different kind of case. It opened out and then closed up and looked sort of like a big box, but it was ornate wood and very pretty. I don't know where it ever got to, but I learned to sew on it in my mother's home. I love old antique sewing machines and would fill my house with them if I could.
Oh yea, Kathleen, I didn't think about that. That's okay, maybe it will help. I know many have past this landmark birthday, but 50 to me is just daunting.
You wouldn't happened to be related to Karen Kingsbury the author are you? Maybe you are her in disguise? HAHA, I'm more impressed that you are a quilter/sewer. YOu make some really cute stuff, I looked at your pics.
