Just thought I would share and update since my last post in Feb.

I finished the quilting on the Blue quilt in March and it is just waiting for me to stitch on the binding.

In February I went on a retreat with all the girls in my family - Daughter, Daughter in law, Grand daughter, Step daughter and SD's mom. It was fun and I pieced another weekender quilt top for my mother in law, who is now in a nursing home.

I quilted that in March and finished up the binding in April.…

Goals for 2015 -

Do I dare make goals?? I have tons of WIP's to work on. Not to mention the quilts I haven't started that I want to start.

I do have one quilt loaded on my long arm. It's the blue and white squares and I try to put in about 15 minutes to 1/2 an hour, couple of times a week on it, but I am slow and easily distracted.

If I do make goals it would strictly be for quilts I want to get done, not small projects like table runners, or hot pads.

 But how…

Hi, Nancy!  My frame is a Graceframe Z44 (bought it several years ago).  I use it mostly to tie quilts or to baste on.  When I hand quilt, I usually use a lap frame.  I also have an old floor frame that was given to me by a great aunt, but to use it, I have to clear out my living room!  Thanks for the kind comment on the quilt.  It is half done, but our little grandson was here for a visit, so I haven't worked on it for a day or two.  I'll hopefully have it finished up tomorrow.

Hi Nancy! I'm glad you have made some rag quilts. Aren't they a fun, easy way to make quilts? I need to make more of them ... they are really an easy way to use up scraps or flannel. I LOVE that you have a "completed list" and two UFO lists! What a great way to keep a person motivated. I would need to FIND my UFO's before I could list them. I know they are in my closet - somewhere. LOL

Thanks Nancy for the nice compliment on my sewing machine cover. Just use any machine pattern and draw an applique you like to put on it. Machine embroidery can be used as well.  It's my friend Jenny from England who is visiting me. I don't have a daughter. We are having fun sewing and chatting together. She will be leaving on the 28th after being here for a month.

Nancy, the name of this book is Quilting by Hand by Jinny Beyer, it has been intersting. I have a daughter who is a R.N. now and I so enjoy visiting with her about medical stuff now if I could get one of the 5 girls interested in quilting that would be so nice!! So glad Casey loves it. do you live close to one another?

Friendship starter: 1 c. regular starter, 1 c. milk, 1 c. sugar, 1 c. flour. Take a cup of traditional started, put in a glass or ceramic bowl Add milk, sugar and flour and blend well. Cover with plastic wrap and let work 24 hours.

Regular Sourdough Starter, 2 c. warm water, 1 tbs. sugar or honey, 1 tbs or 1 packet dry active yeast, not the instant, 2 c. all purpose flour. Pour water into a two quart glass, never metal, container, add yeast then stir in flour. cover with cloth, put somewhere warm. let it bubble/brew for 3-5 days, stirring it once or twice a day as it will separate. Once the mixture gets the very sour yeasty aroma, the you want, stir for the last time, put a lid on it and refrigerate it. The starter should have the consistancy of pancake batter. The night before I need to use mine, I take it from the refrigerator, add 1 cup water and 1 cup flour, stir using plastic or rubber, and leave on counter with no lid overnight to bring it alive. If you use more then a cup or two you may again want to replentish it with equal parts flour and warm water. remember never let metal touch the starter that is in your jar. Once it is being mixed for a recipe that is different. Keep me posted. Linda Love your Shih Tzu, I have two.

Good morning Nancy ... it was so great getting your message. Oh, I forgot to tell you that the restaurant in Conrad, Carol's Kitchen, is operated by my daughter's in-laws. Her name is Cortney and she works there sometimes during the week. I tell ya' ... I'm sure hoping that we get some sunshine pretty soon. I am definitely a sunshine person, and I need some to get myself energized. I am going to attend a mini-retreat this Friday evening and Saturday in Ankeny. I'm hoping it will be fun. I just need to take any project that I'm working on, and I'm cutting out pieces now to make a SunBonnet Sue lap quilt. Thought I better start out small and get something finished. I do have some other queen-size projects cut out but haven't finished yet. Well, I'm at work and I better get into action. You have a great day and I will write more later.

Bye for now ... Joyce
