Hello Elizabeth....I guess we just keep missing each other on fb. Will have to change that, I miss chatting with you. We are doing good... the storm just gave our area rain and high winds. I am glad that we did not lose power.
I have been doing some clothing sewing along with quilting. Right now a I am on the last quarter section of my mom's quilt. This quilt has been a year long process. I have done small stuff on the side. Once it is done I will start on my Weaver Fever quilt. The pictures are on my page if you want to look. I have sooooo many tops pieced that I may have to declare another "me" year or two to get them quilted. (LOL)
Speaking of the other sewing I had better get to it. Catch you again soon. Bonnie
Nice to hear from you Betty, I have had company all month from England so haven't been on the comp. much. Jenny will be leaving on the 28th. I'm going to miss her. She has been sewing up a storm, making purses, aprons, placemats, and pillow top. I have had allot of work ( alterations) so have been working on those along side her. We have done some fun things, like going out for a whale watch, attended two festivals, and shopping til we dropped. Along with dinner parties for her to meet my friends. Tomorrow we are going to Fredericton NB. to Kings Landing. It's a Historical Settlement. It's like walking back into the 1800's.
Nice to hear from you Betty. I haven't been to Hawaii since 1987. I loved it there. It was a trip of sight-seeing. We went to four of the Islands. Quilting in Paradise, how much better does it get? Fill me in when you get back. Can't wait to see pictures and hear about your trip. ~ Hugs Irene
Good morning Elizabeth, I haven't seen you on QWU in a long time. Is everything alright with you? I'm thinking your probably super busy. I know I have been very busy since the beginning of fall. I made many of my Christmas presents and then Bud fell and hurt his foot and leg just before Christmas, and had me waiting on him hand and foot for a month. In between all this I have been trying to catch up on my alterations. I am making headway but just when I think I'm catching up more bags full come in. Yesterday I went and measured windows in a house that I am making window treatments for. The house had a fired (arson) and the owner had to re-do the whole house. Allot of smoke and water damage. Big two story with an apartment on the back. I'm hoping to get some sewing done later today. I'm doing laundry and have to go out and pay bills and pick up some groceries. I have to go out of town on Wed. to a funeral so this is a bad week to get much done in the sewing room. I hope all is well with you and your family. ~ Irene
HI Betty, We are fine even thought h e chemical explosion was out our way. Our DS was quite pleased his school was closed or the day and so were his students. Mitchell is now open but it was quite a drama. We slept through it with no early warning phone calls. it must have been scary for the homes not far from the area though.
Floriade is back on and Canberra is gradually filling up with visitors - NSW school holidays next week and ACT the week after. My Uncle and his wife drove down from the Gold Coast to see it and us and some other friends. It was great to catch up with him - he looks so much like how I remember my Dad who died about 32 years ago now.
Hope all is well with you and your family. Guess whose daughter has subtly asked me to make her bridesmaid dress - oh dear!! LOL
Good morning Elizabeth, I posted the cake yesterday on my page. The anniversary party was very nice and I got to see many family members who live nearby but never see. My cousin and his wife were very pleased by the event.
Elizabeth your photo's are absolutely gorgeous. Reminded me of camping with my ex husband and my boys when they were young. There are some things that I miss that I did with him. But I have never missed "him". I just finished decorating an anniversary cake for my cousin's 50th wedding anniversary. I will post a pic later. I have to go now and clean up the mess. I hate washing those tubes and bags. We have been invited out for supper so I'm glad, I don't have to bother making any. Last Friday night I had 13 in here for supper and it was so hot I thought we all would melt. Glad to hear from you. Hope we can connect on chat sometime soon.
Good morning Elizabeth, just thought I would drop off a note to tell you I'm thinking of you. We have been getting gorgeous weather. It's hot but it beats the cold and snow. I'm not getting much sewing done. Doing other things to occupy my time. My son has started the process to buy my house so am cleaning out closets and things, hoping to be moving before too long. I just hope everything goes through and I can get settled before the cold weather hits. I think the reason I have lived here 46 years is I hate the moving process. Have a great day.
Hi Elizabeth, It's o.k. I know sometimes we're signed on to chat but do other things as well. I hope you are fine. Irene said you had been on vacation (I think that's what she mentioned a while ago). You mentioned you are doing landscaping - my husband has been doing some too, made some front steps and patio up to our front porch and doing landscaping w/red mulch and stones around it. I hope you had a good 4th. I'm feeling better yesterday and today - I take each day at a time. Hugs, Becky
Hello Elizabeth - Sorry I missed you on chat - I see you are on but not responding. How are things in Canada? I haven't talked to Irene Gallway in a while either. Hope you are fine. i'm doing o.k. - had 3 chemo treatments so far - this last one has me exhausted. take care. Hugs, Becky
Good Morning Elizabeth, I'm glad to have heard from you. It is a busy time of year and usually the activity on QWU slows down a bit. To get on chat go to the bottom right where it says Quilt with Us and click on it. Chat will come up. Hope to chat with you soon.
Betty - most people try and spend lots of time outside in the summer and not so much in the sewing room!!! We in Canada have to make the most of the summer weather. Glad you are OK. and congratulations on your wedding. Enjoyed your photo's.
Hi Elizabeth, sorry to hear you can not access the LOAQ's group, I would say that if you go to the bottom of this page, to Report an Issue, then tell the Admin what the screen tells you, they should be able to help. I have had problems and finally thru their help found out that I had Explorer 9 loaded on my machine and this site does not work well with it. Keep me informed, as we have missed you and would love to hear and see photos from you holiday! Hugs,
The holiday must have been fun Liz. Welcome back. I am not sure what you meant. Can't you get access to LOAQs? I will ask CQ for you if you like? The only swap Think Summer is now closed - CQ and Gwen sent the participants some bits of fabric that must be used.
I have started an inchie swap on ACEOs if you would like to join? Let me know.
Elizabeth, where are you. Haven't seen hide nor hair of you in awhile. I hope your just busy and not sick. I can't say too much, I don't blog often myself. I come in and out a few times throughout the day. I have been so busy all year with the alterations that I don't have much time to work on my own projects. I have place mats and a purse started but very little done on them. Hugs
