I have been quilting for 17 years and am a traditional quilter. I love the country colors. I quilt just for the love of it! Sometimes when I walk into a quilt shop, the colors make me salavate :) I can't wait to rush home and start sewing again. I worked mornings in a church as the Parish Secretary and Bookkeeper - gave me time to quilt! I just retired this past July due to health reasons and hope to have more time to check in here and add some pictures of my quilts and join some of the groups.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, paper piecing, hand quilting, embroidery, knitting, gardening
My pets are awesome!
Tasha, our adopted cat and Sadie our rescue Poodle. Both ARE awesome!
Hi Paula - we have some things in common. I've had fibro 16 years now too, officially, AND I was a church secretary for 10 years -- my favorite job I've had. Yes, quilting is the sanity and the relaxation for me from fibro as well. Glad you joined Fibro Girls. It's a great bunch!
Thanks for asking if I can join the group in August, Paula! I hope they will be OK with that...I'd love to be part of a group again.
And before that, maybe you can come by my place some day this summer.
I'm only working a couple days a week and looking for something more substantial. It's hard, but at least I get more time to quilt!
I live in Essex Jct, too! Right near the 5 Corners on Pleasant Street.
I did join the guild, but only made it to one meeting last year. I will try to make more of an effort starting in September.
When I lived in NH, I was part of a small quilt group that got together every Monday night to work on our own individual projects together. Are there any small groups or bees around here who are willing to take on a new member, do you know?
Love your Irish knot quilt!
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
HI Paula, Thanks for the commet on our doggie. She is a real sweet heart.
Love your quilt work. Very nice. I have to agree with you I love the country colors also. I can spend hours when I have time just looking at fabric on line.
How are you foster dogs LOL I would want to keep them all,
God bless you. Happy Quilting.
This was my first English Paper Piecing effort and I was very pleased with the results. I really like to "Make it up as I go along."............hmmm........don't know what that says about me, but it worked for this effort. I love Baltimore quilts. I am trying my hand at a designing a couple of them: "Roses and violets" and "I still Believe", which features patriotic symbols.
