If you love someone, be sure to tell them every day. If someone needs a hug, give them one. If someone needs to talk, listen. If someone needs their space, give it to them. If someone is in need of a friend, be one. If someone is down, help them up. If someone reaches out, extend your hand. If someone needs a shoulder to cry on, give  them one. Whatever the need, try to meet it. Don't say you're too busy or can't be bothered. This may be the last chance you have to care. We have no guarantee of another tomorrow. Today may be the last one you or they may have. Live your life so that you have no regrets.

If I have wronged anyone today, I ask your forgiveness come what may. I want no hurt between my friends and me, I come now on bended knee. Life is too short you know, Our lives have crossed  here below. Everyone we may chance to meet, Is a blessing that can't be beat. You all are so special to me, My heart is as full as can be. The love I feel when we chat, Just can't get any better than that.

We are doing well Cindy. We are keeping busy with clearing out a lot of accumulated stuff from 36 years of being together! A daunting task I must say. Room by room we are getting rid of a lot of stuff we haven't used in many years. Between that and sewing I have kept my sanity this last year!  My family is all well. I have three grandchildren going away to college this year! The boys are now 21 yrs. old and Sammy is now 18. Alexandra will be going next year! I turned 68 this year but my brain keeps telling me I am still 38! Then the body kicks in protest saying "you darn fool act your age!"  

I am working on Grassy Creek...the final border going together.  I think I will pass on the mystery this year. It takes the whole winter to finish it and I never get to work on all the other project kits I have. I am going to concentrate on doing all kits in my stash for the next year.  

We need to exchange our email addresses so we can keep in touch now that this site is closing down. I don't want to lose contact with you! 

Stay well my friend!

Good morning Cindy,

I hope your Christmas Day was a special one with your little guy! The children always make it such a happy time.  I am sorry to hear about your daughter. I will most certainly pray for her to have good results with her treatments.  My husband had a shoulder replacement surgery last year so I know how difficult shoulder issues can be.  They are difficult to treat and take long periods for recuperation. 

Our day was spent with hubby's family at our home. It was the first time in 30 years he had a holiday spent with his family all together.  In the last couple of years he has lost two of his brothers so this was a really good thing for him and his Mom. I missed my family but did get to visit with all of them via FaceTime.  Thank goodness for modern electronics! 

I am going to begin on the Grassy Creek mystery today...Part 1. She just released part 6 so I better get started!  Have a wonderful day and stay well!

Hi Cindy!

Merry Christmas!  I hope the months have treated you well since August.  Mike and I are back in Florida for the winter. Covid was really bad in our hometown when we left so coming south was a good thing for us.  Now that they have started doing the vaccinations maybe this thing will turn around and our lives can get back to some semblance of normal.

I finally finished my Frolic top and dropped it to the quilter before leaving NY with three other quilts for her to do.  I have such a stack of quilts that need quilting!  I am going to do this years mystery also, but I am waiting until Christmas is over to get started on it.

By now I hope you have your "She Shed" for your quilting.  That is such a nice thing the kids are doing for you.  

I think of you often and always with affection.  Stay well my friend.

God's Peace to you on this holiest of days,

Hi Cindy!

I hope all is well with you as this pandemic continues to ravage our country and the world.  Mike and I are doing the stay at home thing unless going out is a necessity.  It makes for a very quiet life but that is ok.  

I am still working on Frolic...I have just the borders to add on.  I just can't seem to get started with them.  I guess the life changes due to the virus are affecting my desire to sew.  I am retired now so I have to get my mojo back and start using all the fabric I have accumulated over the years!

My family is growing like crazy.  I now have 7 grandchildren.  Three of them are starting college this year!  If you go to my page and check out the pictures of my two granddaughters with their dolls you can see my Samantha (a bit younger than she is now) who is starting at the U. of Connecticut in September.  She is a brilliant young woman and I cannot wait to see what she does with her life.  She is taking premed for preparation to become a dermatologist.

The two boys (Matthew and Austin) are going to NY Fashion Institute for Graphic Design and NYS University @ Stonybrook for premed in Psychiatry!  They are two very handsome young men and both brilliant as well.  I am so proud of all three of them.

My Alexandra wants to be a teacher and is going into her sophomore year, Allison is going into her first year of high school, Autumn is 7 yrs. old and going into 3rd grade and the baby (Violet) is just 8 months.

We don't know if we will be going to Florida this winter.  It is so bad down there with the Covid 19 right now that we have to wait and see if it dies down a bit first before we go down for the season.  NY is the place to be right now with our numbers being so low (less than 1%).  

Stay well Cindy!

Hi Cindy!

I was so sorry to hear about your loss of Jerry.  I am glad to hear that you have your kids and grandkids with you.  It sounds like they are taking great care of Mom! To have your own "she shed" for quilting is awesome.  Nice size too. 

As for getting confused with Frolic....join the club!  I did the same thing with mixing them up.  Fortunately I only had to take four blocks apart and redo them, but what a pain to resort and get it right.  The directions were confusing to me.  Now that I have all pieces sewn I have so many parts left over! What a waste of fabric making all those extra flying geese, half square triangles, etc.  I wasn't happy about that with the price of fabric so high these days.  I thought Bonnie could have done something with the directions so as not to waste that much fabric.  It is a beautiful quilt so I am glad to have started it.  I am now getting ready to lay it out and start sewing it together.  She doesn't have the greatest pictures or instructions for assembly either.  Not a mention of what to do with the 1 1/2" blue squares we cut.  I am assuming they are a part of the sashing, but the pictures are not the greatest.  This is the first time I have had any difficulty with Bonnie's instructions.  They are usually very straight forward.

Stay well Cindy...I will keep in touch more now that I am retired!

Peace, Jennie

Like some of the rest of you, I too have gotten away from posting or doing much on here. Thanks Pam for the nudge.

For me I quit coming on a regular basis after my hubby retired, 6 years ago. Life dealt us some detours that were out of our control (for the most part). Started out 6 months after moving into our home I had a heart attack. No worries on that now as I am in better health than I have been for years. I have brought my chloresterol levels into normal ranges, all without…

Also in the publishing world they began AQ Magazine as well as many other publications. The accomplishments of Bill and Marilyn Schroeder are so numerous. An amazing couple to say the least. To…

I didn't know if you heard, so thought I would share

Most of us sit in our comfy chairs, looking at the comments, projects and photos we all share here on QWU. Usually we don't give a thought to what it takes to keep the site going. But when something isn't quite right, listen to us wonder what's going on. Questions and theories get tossed around amongst us. Is it this or that? Oh no, hope it doesn't stay this way. The comments are varied. Well today when it happened we soon found out that due to the IT person moving away several others were…
