Roxann - I'm glad you like my patriotic stars wallhanging. I adapted it from Nancy Martin's 'Nancy's Fancy' pattern. I used my (then EQ6) to design the blocks and pattern. I would be happy to share the two blocks with you, and the pattern. You can email me at elder(dot)barb(at)gmail(dot)com
Nothing beats ranch life in my book. I agree with you, I would have a hard time transitioning to town living, but I've lived my whole life in the country, outside of about 4 years after graduating high school (college & work).
I'm always doing research on longarm quilt machines. What made you switch from Gammill to Innova? What have you found to be the pros and cons of each? If you'd rather not comment about that publicly, just friend me and send a private message. Thanks!
Thanks so much for reading my first blog and taking the time to comment on it! I loved your story about the blue radiator fan. I still have my Mom (she'll be 95 on Valentine's Day) and the red bear always makes me smile. Or laugh out loud thinking she'd saved that dang coat for over 20 years!
Thank you Roxann for sending some sunshine our way. The weatherman is saying it should warm back up to more seasonal temps next week. I sure hope he is correct. I'm not quite ready to get out the winter boots just yet.hope your day goes as planned. Smiles and sunshine to you.
Hi Roxy - I'm so glad you joined the group - there's such a lot of lovely people that it doesn't take long to settle in and become involved. I envy you your 26 Innova. I had to settle for an 18 on a 12ft in the end as space is tight (no bells and whistles), but I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Thanks for your comment on the picture of Lily & Jack. It's hard to believe that he's almost 1-1/2 years old already! He's always in motion and a bit of a superstorm around the house, but they still get along quite well....unless Jack's trying to smash one of her toys!
