Sheila....After looking at the 2015 calendar I realized the retreat is the weekend before Thanksgiving. I have my family in for our Thanksgiving on the Saturday before. Therefore I won't be able to attend. I realize I will forfeit my deposit. Thanks.
You haven't looked very close or you'd see the mistakes! LOL
Very cold here today and I have to go out. NOT looking forward to that at all. But I'm heading to the Museum today for fabric and patterns for 3 dresses to make! Don't need to have them done until September. But KT is anxious to start picking out fabrics! And truth be told, so am I..... Keep warm and have a fantastic weekend.
Hmmm, I guess the only thing I could say would be to Google it? It's a Historical Island around here. They give tours all summer long and there is a big house on the island where a famous family once lived. I think there name was Blennerhassett. They re-inact the family and servants and go all out. They even have teas and everything. It's quit beautiful.
I live near Marietta, Belpre, and Parkersburg, WV. I'm about 20 mins. from Marietta and Parkersburg and only 6 -8 mins. from Belpre. Close enough to the city, but still in the country. I sew for Blennerhassett Island Museum usually at least once a year. You may have heard of Blennerhassett Island?
Your a smart lady! I wish I could of worked! I tried and had panic attacks and nerve problems ..... thanks dad. So hubby told me to just stay home, so I did. But oh how I wanted to be in the work force! I do sew for folks and a local Museum. So I at least make my own play money......
Thank you Sheila, I do love to applique! I'm just a simple housewife of 42 yrs. with 2 grown daughters and 4 grandkids. Don't work so I have plenty of free time on my hands. Hubby is now retired and drives me bonkers! I do volunteer a couple of days at our churches food pantry. Actually, hubby has started to help there too! No break for the wicked is there? LOL
Hey Sheila, your teacher must have been a whirlwind! When I'm teaching, I try to include enough info so the students would be able to make a quilt, not just a pillow top. I haven't made a Burgoyne Surrounded yet, but I know it takes tons of pieces - if you look at it, you may be able to do some chain piecing or strips cut up into smaller parts of the block.
Well girlfriend I love everything that you've made...a little partial to the Chickadee placemats!!! The pincushion Indy thinks is his toy so I've never been able to use it. Small sacrifice. I loved the Irish wall hanging and the little snowman. If they ever need a home, there's a place for them here.
I vaguely mentioned that I've had a couple gals over for a long weekend here and how much fun we had on one of the other sites I'm on. Whoa baby...you can't image the response! But most of them live too far away so they are planning a weekend at a more central place but too far for me to travel. Oh well. Hopefully the weather will clear up soon and you aren't working weekends. I think I'll need cheering up by the end of the day.
Sheila, I apologize for the response I gave you on one of the groups, but I am hurting very bad right now, because I am here in the US having chosen to marry an American Air Force soldier instead of being with my countrymen, and I can only do so much to help in their time of need. I ask that you be generous with your prayers for the Filipinos so that they 'can see the light' and not be so complacent in matters such as this.
