Jodi,

You wrote on Irene's post: "How could we ever get through all that life has to offer without being able to sit in a quiet spot and take a few stitches. It makes the rest bearable because out of the melee of life something beautiful is created. Something in our hands that we can see and something in our hearts that we can't see but is nevertheless very real."  

WELL SAID!  Very well said.  Thank you.

I agree, stitching can be a real comfort and at the same time your creating beautiful things.  I'm looking forward to sitting at my machines without having to jump up every 5 minutes to tend to Bud.

And I just read the post under mine and found out that you play the fiddle -- oh how I'd love to hear you....it's some of my favorite music.

Jodi, I took your advice and put Mr. Scarecrow away for a bit.  But after I had a chance to vent, it didn't take long for me to dig him out again and figure out how to make it all work.  I still like him a lot now that he's finished!

Jodi-I would love to hear you play the fiddle...I also am from Nebr. My family was from Schuyler. My father was an international contractor, so we moved several times, but all the family still hang in eastern Nebr.

Jodi, I read your response to Pam's blog, where you said that your husband bought you 6 silver spoons at an antique store. It reminded me that years ago, I visited some very elderly cousins of my grandmother. They told me that one of their aunts bought them each 6 silver spoons engraved with their name because "a lady should have 6 engraved silver spoons." We used them during the visit. I have many silver spoons belonging to my ancestors, the oldest of which are six silver spoons belonging to my g-g-g-grandmother born in 1794. I'm glad you're enjoying your spoons and please pass them down to someone who will treasure and use them!

Thank you Jodi! Don't go to too much trouble though

Jodi, I would love to see pictures of your necktie quilt!

Thank you Jody on your nice  comment regarding my sister.  We have been close all our lives, being two years apart.  It hurts so bad seeing her this sick.

Yet another thing we have in common!  I used to work in a law office as well.

You're so fortunate to have so many handiwork treasures. My ancestors were also prolific in their needlework. It was actually my great aunt's tatting that led me to learn the craft. She had polio and wasn't able to walk, but was able to contribute to the family livelihood by crocheting for a business during the Depression. I'm working my way through my great-great grandmother's quilt tops. I've hand quilted three of them, but still have four more to go!

Thank you, Jodi, for your very kind comments on my crazy quilt. Our ancestors did lead difficult lives and I'm always amazed at the quilts they made. We don't realize how spoiled we are as quilters, with all our fabric choices, tools and resources. I'm fortunate to have some quilts and tops from my ancestors and I treasure them.

Jodi, I loved your doll story.

My mom loves dolls.  Her granddaughters always had a "favorite" doll they liked to play with when they came to her house.  She'd leave her collection sitting around so they could.  When she decided to de-clutter a little bit, she knew which doll would go to which granddaughter.  It was a neat keep-sake - even if they were too old by then to play dolls.  (My mom might say one is never too old to play dolls... )  

Even though your granddaughter isn't into dolls now, I'm sure it is a treasured memory.

I would agree completely about "nothing hurting worse than a toothache."  I had a dry socket when my wisdom teeth were pulled as a junior in high school.  It was THE worst pain I've ever experienced.   Worse than childbirth by a long shot.  Hope your husband is feeling better soon.

Thanks, Jodi!  I appreciate your comments and suggestions on the quilting slump post.  And I don't mind sharing our faith at all.  I'm sure something will call to me one of these days and then I'll be off and running again.  Maybe I just need to get some music back in my quilting corner.  :)  Hope all is well with your family and that you are working on some fun projects.  

My grandmother was the same as yours - always had her hands busy with some type of hand work, although she didn't quilt as much as crochet or embroidery work.  In fact, I credit her with teaching me to embroider and crochet, as well as passing on a love of hand work.  

Thanks again!

We are early risers, but also early to bed.  We joke with family about the "don't call past 9 p.m. rule."  :)  

We'll look forward to your pictures.

You're so right.  The burden of responsibility rests with us when it comes to scams.  I'd sure like to think everyone was honest, but I'm also a bit of a skeptic.  We're trying to give this business the benefit of the doubt.  We've talked some about it with his mom.

Hi, Jodi!  I'd love to hear you play!    

My instrument is the keyboard and voice.   Any public singing is pretty  much Southern Gospel.  I grew up on country music, but like you, I've been exposed to a little bit of everything.  There is usually something about each genre that I like - depending on my mood, though I confess I'm not much of a fan of the hard rock, metal or modern pop.   I like Celtic music and bluegrass as well.  I had some classical vocal training in college, but I'm just a mediocre musician at best.  But music is something that touches my soul.  I'm sure you know exactly what I mean.  Reading music came easily to me; playing by ear - not so much.  

Great chatting with you!

Hi Jodi!  I'm glad you commented on my "big note quilt" post.  Always great to hear from someone with ties to western Nebraska.  My DD and her husband are now Coloradans.  They live in Yuma, CO, which isn't too far from us.  I can make it a day trip if I want to, but it's always more fun to stay a day or two.  :)  

Stitching and music:  sounds like we have a lot in common.

HI Jody,

The quilt show went well, although the bad cold/windy weekend hurt the crowd numbers a bit. I need to get up photos of the quilts, but had other things to do this week. Thanks for asking! Linda
