Thank you, Jean

I'm so glad that you like my Classic Folk Art Quilt.  I looked at your quilts before sending this message and you have made a lot of beautiful quilts!  And lots of baby quilts!

Hello,  You will love Lancaster.  They have lots of quilt shops.  This week is there big quilt show.  I wish I could have gone.   Our biggest quilt shop we go to is down around the Williamsport Area.  I grew up down below the Reading Area.  I've been working on a Patriotic quilt to be donated to an organization that takes wounded soldiers hunting.  I have a few more rows to sew together, then off to be machine quilted.  I will post a pic of  it when done.  Talk to you soon.

Hello Jean, It will be great to have you as a friend.  We had quilt guild last night.  We had show and tell, Exchanged 5 inch charm squares.  Opened up our  gift from our secret pals.  The  guild is working on a Jacobs ladder quilt.  So today I sewed my row of squares together for the next meeting.  Last  night we had program on getting back to the basics of quilting.  Very interesting!!  I also live in the snow belt.  I live on top of a mountain.  I think we are the only ones who get the most snow.  In fact we got more today.  I live  in the middle upper part of PA near NY state border line.  We lots of deer and bear in our yard all year long.  Love your quilts  they are awesome!!

Hi Jean: Been a long time since I have been on this site. Lots have changed. Enjoying a snow day today. In my comfie clothes and catching up my internet browsing. Hoping to get up into my sewing room later and give it a good clean out. Haven't done much sewing this past year, but now have lots of time. Plan on spending more time on the site so hope to hear from you again. Hope all is improving with your hubby.

Thanks Jean!  The heart runner was a birthday gift for a dear friend.  She liked it too!

Hi Jean: I am so glad to hear that your DH is feeling better, I am sorry that he had to go through all that in the first place. I find it very hard to focus on my crafts when I am stressed, I make all kinds of mistakes etc. I still hven't much time to do crafts, but soon I hope. I have missed the fellowship tht this sit brings. I will keep you Hubby in my prayers so that he has a clean bill of health come March 7th. Take care

Jean, I used to do a lot of painting before I retired.  I lived in CA and my best buddy would cut out the wood and I'd paint the projects.  Then she would assemble if necessary.  We didn't do shows but made a ton of things.  I given a lot of my stuff away to special people but as far as I know my buddy still has all of her things.  We got started when she gave me a 30" Toy Solder for Christmas that she cut out and painted.  He didn't have any  decorative elements to him but I loved from the start.  I call him Monty Wingate.  He looks very British.

I have a couple of wood pieces I'd like to do but I just don't seem to get to them now that I have started quilting.

Thank you Jean for your kind comment.  That quilt took me longer than I ever intended.  All of the tulips are needle turn.  Then I injured my right arm and had to stop doing anything repetitive with my arm.  Bummer. But now my arm is better, well almost, and I'm starting to quilt again.

Your quilts are really beautiful.  I see you have a GFG and some applique quilts.  Did you do the decorative painting?

I just finished working on some soft, batting-filled Christmas storybooks for the grandkids.  Now working on a Christmas elf wall hanging that will be partially machine quilted.  I'm trying to incorporate sewing into my weekly routine, along with all the other things I'm trying to keep up on!  But I don't have a sick husband at present.  I nursed my late husband through cancer nearly 10 years ago before he died in 2002.  So, I know what it's like.  My heart goes out to you.  It's the rottenest thing, but somehow we manage, don't we?  We sew to keep sane sometimes.  I hope all goes well with his chemo treatments and it will solve his problems.

Your quilts are beautiful.  I hope to someday quilt as beautifully as you do.  You said that my quilt was amazing for a first-timer and that certainly pleased me.  Honestly, I'm such a novice.  But hoping with the help of my new machine to get better -- maybe increase my enthusiasm with a machine that's made especially for quilting.

Hey Jean! I'm not sure if I'm the culprit or if I legitimately haven't gotten it yet, but I don't seem to have your mailing address to post my block to. Could you send it to me in a message or alternatively, you can email it to me at Ashley@TenderloinTextiles.com
Thank you and happy fourth!

Hi Jean

I just left you a comment a few minutes ago and meant to say that i started a new quilt yesterday which is an applique quilt so am looking forward to seeing it finished.

The first ever applique that i made was a bedspread made about 15 years ago, but as a working lady i didn't get a lot of time for my hobbies. I also crocheted a beautiful white cotton bedspread and that took about three years to complete because i sometimes felt too tired after work to do very much, but my patience paid off in the end and i have loved that ever since. My daughter has it now.
