We have been in our new Nest (Senior Apartment House)...and everything has worked out just fine...a little tight, but we are learning to dance around the kitchen table...the tightest room is the bedroom!..with a Queen Air Mattress, that is out of control!...it now measures 8 feet wide and 10 feet long...it was definitely built for the Giant, of Jack and the Bean Stock fame! Oh, and the best part is the height of the Giant's bed...4 feet tall. So, we must use stools to climb in!...this is what… Continue

I'm glad you are doing well Kathy. I wish we had your warm weather here. I just finished piecing the Midnight Harvest table topper - now I have to wait for the flannel to come in - they are for the appliqued pumpkins all around the borders. There will be 24 different ones. I will be busy LOL. Have a great weekend! Becky

Hello Kathy - I love your Christmas quilts. I am working on 2 table toppers - one is a mystery quilt pattern that we are doing for quilt group - it's all pieced, now I have to sandwich it and start quilting it and another one called Midnight Harvest. it will have hand appliqued pumpkins all around the border - I hope you are doing well. Things are fine here - waiting for Spring to arrive. Hugs, Becky C.

Sorry to hear that you have had a fall, Kathy, but hope you are on the mend. I have learned, too, that I can't walk fast, but I have to use a cane as my balance is off from when I had chemo 4 yrs. ago. I'm so happy that you and your family are alright - yes, it's scary what is happening in the world. It's too close to our homes now. Pray every tday that God protects us and our loved ones.I just finished a Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer small quilt for my Jen in San Diego.She has always loved Rudolph from when  she was a little girl. I just wrapped it up for her for Christmas - I have their box ready to mail next week. She and her husband won't be able to come home this year - they just made a trip to Michigan to visit his family and grandparents for Thanksgiving, as his Grandma has cancer and not doing well. Wishing you a blessed and Merry Christmas! Keep safe and happy quilting! Hugs, Becky
