About Me
I am very blessed--married to my sweetheart for 28 years now, with one child in college, another in graduate school, and a very sweet, not-too-bright cat who has to be reminded daily where his food bowl is kept. DH and I moved to central Georgia when he retired, and we are really enjoying our new home here. I love quilting with the Happy Quilters of Laurens County. I've been quilting since 2000, and I love making traditional quilts, especially reproductions of antique quilts. Right now, I'm working on a Double Wedding Ring, one of my goals when I started quilting. When I grow up, I want to make a Dear Jane. I hand quilt everything, and my favorite quilt notion is my Roxanne thimble (well, both of them).

Joana - the only recipe like that I can think of didn't have a peppermint meringue, but a cinnamon one. It's my Chocolate Torte Royale.  Here's that recipe.  I will go look through my collection to see if there was another, but it isn't ringing a bell with me.

Thanks for the suggestions, Joana.  I'm keeping an idea book now so as I'm finishing one,, I can be planning the colours for the next one.

I hope in looking at supplements for your son you will look at the Mannatech Glyconutrional supplements.  They do have one called 'Immuno Start' that helps build up the immune system. I am on several of their supplements and they have made a HUGE difference in my health. My DH can answer or find answers to any questions you might have.

Joana, thanks for the compliment on my applique quilt.  I quilted it on my LA.  I've had it for a little over a year and finally got brave enough to work on that quilt - didn't want to mess it up after all the hours of hand applique :)

Hi Joana--thanks for friending me---a bit like FB. I also live in Georgia in Walton county in a little spot off 78 called Between. We retired almost 3 years ago and moved here from Orlando via WV where we were raised. Two of our daughters live in GA---one in Barrow Co and one in Savannah area---Richmond Hills. Our oldest daughter and her family live in the Orlando area.

Love your blocks and love the fabrics.  I never thought of red and blue, but it is going to be lovely.  I am doing my second BAQ in purples and greens.

Oh, Joana, that would be depressing (regarding the non heat resistant template plastic).  Wait til I show you how I "fixed" my mess-up this week.  Pictures to come later.

I would look at it as being paid for doing something I truly love!! take a break from tetris and think about it!

Hi Joana, of course I was kidding about being an agent...but seriously....consider the idea!! this is how we got the telephone and a better mousetrap---someone had an idea!! I think you should run with it!!
