Diana, no worries about not responding to my question. In fact I had totally spaced it out as things have been a little on the hectic side around here with my hubby in the process of retiring and us looking for some place to live. Too many irons in the fire and just decided to do the projects with the gals on QWU. Take care.
Hi Diana - Just popped in to see how you are, we miss you on LOAQ. BJ and I have just posted something that we think you may be interested in - I know it is a subject close to your heart. Hope to see you over there and put in a comment on the new idea.
spoke about you few times too ( and yes nicely) .....lol
how is everything at your end - here it is ok - the routine stuff - just came back from a month in Fl. nice -
though I would let you know - went to have my sewing machine serviced and saw three featherweight - at $100 with the box and.... and they had an A or H under in the serial number - I remembered that you were looking at them ,,,
and they were made here in this area at the time - that is why they are cheaper...
Diana, quick question. Is the black & red quilt I made for my DD's wedding considered a 'traditional' quilt? Just curious as am thinking about the call for quilts for the book. Also, beings I used a pattern from a magazine would I need their permission to submit it to the book. I would tell where the pattern came from. I've not done anything like this before, so need to know what is acceptable. Thanks a bunch. cindy
HI!.....I am going to JoAnns this weekend and will take a look at the cotton yarns...They sell the "Sugar n Cream" brand of 100% cotton. I have crocheted wash cloths and we use them all the time! They are simply the best, in the kitchen and the bathroom.....LOVE THEM! The ones shown on Pinterest are knitted, the site gives the patterns...I do know how to knit and pearl so shouldn't be a problem.....I'll let you know what colors I find!
My dear Diana, you truly are a "pearl of great prize." Your friendship, support, the way you reach out to others and offer comfort even when you are in pain yourself makes you a unique individual. There are so few ou there in the world like you and it's refreshing to see someone who possesses values that were instilled in me as a child.
Hope you had a fantastic turkey day and didn't "gobble gobble" too much. LOL. Wanka tanka kin chi un -- May God Bless!
I was fast asleep when you wrote, yeah I am from the other part of the globe = ) Those mosaic you did................ I don't know whether it is because I now most of them or what. They are gorgeous, especially the lady who sings the blues. You are infectious oh yes you are. I can feel my blood running mad in my veins
Me again. (smile) Just spending part of a rainy morning looking at quilt photos.
I 'm so impressed with the portrait quilts you do. And i especially like the waterfall...blues are my favorite color. What talent !!
Thanks for inviting me to be your friend. I love your work! Especially Louis Armstrong, he is a special favourite of mine. I am amazed by the amount of things you have accomplished as well as the quality. I will have to get busy. If only someone would turn the heat (sun) down......:)
Hello Diana, I never thought I would hear from you.....I have seen your work. I have only been using the techniques that Tammie is teaching for about a month. I found and printed a copy of an interview you did with Karen Musgrave from the Alliance for American Quilts on 12-9-2008. It was in this transcript that I realized that you and Tammie worked together. I found you while searching for information on quilted photography. I LOVE the batiks....your quilts are absolutely stunning....My interest in this technique of "values" started a few years ago when I saw Tammie on an episode of Simply quilts
Hi Diana - You know, I tried several times to get this other fiber/mixed media group that I joined to work correctly (technically) and just had all kinds of trouble with it so I quit it. I saw you were on there! Do you ever have trouble on that site? It was really wierd....anywhose - just stopping in to say "hi" and hoping you are doing well! I got into my quilt and of course don't have any time for the ACEO's right now. Then I got the bright idea to start exploring paper cloth fusion which is really fun and a great avenue for mixed media! I still want to try some of the post cards, so don't count me out yet...I am still following the group. Have a great week. Vic
