Hi Jenni, so good to hear from you. Glad you guys are safe and well. From what I've heard on the news you are in a good place during this crazy time. I am doing fine throughout the stay at home orders. Actually, not much has been different as I am a "home body" and rarely venture out. Having lived so far away from towns/cities for most of my life, what most people are having to adjust to has been my normal forever.
I too have Frolic in the process. All my steps are done, now to assemble the blocks. I had a "senior" moment and now have to sort my pieces to get them matched up with their four patch units. My brain wasn't ready for anything complicated. Since losing Jerry I have been in a fog and just couldn't make sense of the instructions. After seeing the reveal everything makes sense. I will get it finished soon.
My kids and grandson are still with me. Daughter has chickens and ducks so we will have eggs in a couple months. We bought fencing material yesterday so part ofmy property will be fenced in. Grandson, the dogs and feathered critters will have a safe place. My guys are building me a "she shed" for quilting. It's 12x16 so will be a good size to fit most everything. They already put up a small shed for my tubs of fabric and supplies. We have plenty of projects to keep us busy!
Take care, safe travels back to NY. Hopefully we are through the worst of this and can get back to a new normal.
Jennie, I just read your comments on my last blog. Thank you so much for your kind words and I am so glad my blog renewed your faith. I lost my job in 2001 and dh lost his in 2010, we got through it!! The day he came in and said his company filed bankruptcy, I said, come over here, he sat down, we prayed, put it in God's hands, (this was on a Thursday). He was inspired the next day to go to a company in our town to apply for a job, they hired him and he is still working for them. He is only 4 miles from home. I could write a book about all that happened after that but God never left our side. A lot of it is written in my blogs. He lost his job the end of October and I fell down the stairs the 19th of Dec that same year and had to have 2 surgeries, no ins either. God worked all that out too, all I can say is just trust!!! He will take care of all of it. I will pray for you guys, thank you Jennie!!!! God Bless you and give you favor!!!!
Good to have you as a friend. Nice to know your a traditional quilter,,,Every quilt should be don't you think so? They started out to be so simple, but now there are so many "Artsy" quilts,,,nice....but not what I like either..

I do hope your doing well too,,it is going to be a big one according to what I see, with some quilting you'll be fine,,,.stay safe, my friend,,My prayers are with you, and let me know if you are ok after this is all said and done,,,,,Joanna
Thank you Jennie for your kind comments in the loss of my precious Mr Man. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and for taking the time to let me know you care. I am overwhelmed by the ourpouring of love from all of you. It has helped, believe me. May God pour out blessings on all of you!!!
Good morning Jennie (or afternoon) to you. This pesky time difference, guess you are 3 hours ahead of me. Another beautiful sunny day. Has dropped in temp. though. We're not complaining about that. Have been in the 90's now in the 70's. Just right! Have you gotten any quilting time in. Any special projects? A wall hanging for my aunt (the mother of the cousin I lost over the weekend) is in the works here. Other things got put on hold for a short time. Then it's back to wedding sewing (along with taking hubby to Dr. appt. and PT). Will be thankful when he can drive himself again.
Just clicked to add you as a friend. Thank you for welcoming me. Look forward to chatting with you ladies. Wow, I cannot believe what a boost I have gotten in the past few days since joining this wonderful group of women. It is wonderful to have "contact" with others.
Jennie, Oh my I didnt know any of that. I havent heard anymore about that crazy quilt class. I did get an e mail that was a cc to her asking what we needed for the class but I never got a list of what we need, if we were still having it or anything.
That stinks about her daughter in law and son. too many bad things. We want to hear good things right? I hope that you are feeling better.
Jennie--thank you! I'm glad you liked my quilt. All the quilts were remarkably good this year. I loved Linda's Star quilt---she used a lot of CT fabrics on it. The ones made by our new quilters were exciting--they have grown so much in their quilting in just the past year.
