I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Hi Mari I like the idea of this group and do hope it continues in 2011. It will motivate me to try more projects. Cheers to all Sandy B

I'm not sure what they're going to do with School Anne. I'll have to find out. I've been so focused on Gifty I've not been here in quite a while.

I love catching up with you all!! New language - good idea. I like all those little phrases we all use and don't even think about.
I have loaded a word document on my page listing the antique books. Take a look and see if there is anything you might be interested in. I really don't want to keep any of them. Some are in very good condition, and it would break my heart to put them in the dumpster.
The house is coming along. I have taken several sacks of books to the local library for their shelves or book sale. The lady at the library thinks I robbed a book store. I also took five huge sacks of paper backs to the used book store. Some they couldn't use, but will send on to the VA hospital in Iowa City - I'm glad!! Until I started digging into it, I didn't realize how many books we did have in this house. I'm still taking a lot, but they are either family or something I'm really interested in keeping. Still no sewing. I have packed up most of my sewing room, so I have a ton of boxes sitting around.
We have chosen Sept. 13 as the day we're actually moving. Just picked a day - all of our "social" committments will be fulfilled by then and we're free to go. Both of us are sick of this "getting ready" stuff - just want to get it done.

Oh I love it. Diane, I love the 'eh', actually! I think that's part of the reason I like to watch Holmes on Homes. I like the oy vey, too. And the grub for the hands, I love it all. Then let's cook up a mess o' vittles for the young 'uns. Bon Jour!

Oh yeah, that too! Grub, I love that word ~ it reminds me of vittles. Almost primitive and I love primitive.......... decorating that is. Yep! That's a must too! Western Ranch Slang! Can't get more western than Oregon!
Comment by ranchmom/OR on July 26, 2010 at 1:55pm
We need a little western ranch slang and rustle up some grub for the hands.
Comment by Mari/WA on July 26, 2010 at 1:02pm
Oh, YES! We need an oy vey! We might create a whole new language like the Amish have with their Pennsylvania Dutch (Deutsch)!
