Hi all,

Just a brief. I haven't been on the site in ages. Right now we are in Maryland. We are here waiting for my preggy daughter to move in case she needs us to help with the other 3 (3 boys! I can't imagine what her house will be like with 4). Normally we're on our way back to Deerfield Beach by now, but we will wait until things are calmer for her. Hope all is well and you are all busy with your quilting projects.


p.s. This little one is now 8 years old.

Yes, Sheila, Christmas gifts.  If I don't start now, they won't get done.  I am doing two quilts for my two nephews, one for my sister, mom and I'm sure a few more.  I have my longarm in Florida and I'm in Ma right now.  I have to fly down 8/28 to quilt them.  Bummer, I have to go to Florida...lol.  Next summer we will be full time there.  

I am making a bunch of other things for Christmas too.  I have a lot of embroidery to do also.  I love being busy in my favorite room in the house. I have some of my stuff here, but the majority is down there in our place.

24 blocks for the swap? Are they embroidery blocks or pieced blocks?  On the machine embroidery buddies forum we are doing a swap in September. It is embroidered blocks of birds.  

I can't wait to see your picture of the dolly quilt.  I love to look at all the work that other people do.  It keeps me inspired.

Heidi did you really say Christmas gifts?!?!?!?  I'm already behind and there is never enough time to get anything finished.  Thankfully it is too hot to go outside now so I spent the weekend in my sewing room.  I finished another topper and today I made my favorite soon to be 1year old a new dolly quilt from my scrap bucket.  I'll post a photo once I get the binding finished hand sewn down.  I finally started working on picking out stars for another swap I am in.  Got 24 blocks to get done soon as tehey've got to get into the post.

Sheila: Hi...thanks for the post. I love your quilt. It's beautiful. I hope to be back to Florida the end of August. I have a few quilts that I need to longarm. Next summer I will be home full time other than visiting relatives in Ma, Oh, Ca, Va. Lots of places to visit. I'm at a doctor's appt. with my hubs right now, so I'll write more later regarding what I'm working on. Trying to get Christmas presents done before the last minute rush. Talk to ya soon.

Hello Hot Florida ladies!!  Sorry I have not been very active on this page lately I think I had too many swaps going only got 2 left and then I will be free to enjoy the fruits of my labor and those of my QT friends.  Is everyone staying dry and cool?  Finally started working on replacing the trees the Tropically Storm took out a few weeks ago.  I'll post a photo of the scrappy quilt I made for a friends 2nd baby girl.  I love the way it came out and other than the backing I was very lucky and the whole thing came out of my scrap bin.  I discovered a new ruler and I have been taking advantage of the ease it uses your scraps.

There must be more ladies in Florida who want to gab about embroidery and quilting.  This group is slow in coming around.  Anyone out there?

Oh my gosh, that is adorable. I love it. I like the multi colored border. Thanks for sharing it.
