About Me
I have been sewing all my life ..with raising 7 children, at times was a neccessity! But after they grew up and the grandbabies started coming, I began really enjoying it. Over the last couple of years, I have begun quilting and so enjoy it. It "takes me away" at times! I am married to my best friend and also love to garden which I like to incorporate into my quilts. When I first started I did memories quilts for my grandbabes and they love them to this day. We also have 7 great grandbabes (on my hubby's side and now doing quilts for them. I love doing lap quilts for friends who need a cheer and for our fellow worshipers at church who need comfort. I am a very basic quilter and looking now to challenge my skills. So thanks for this club!!!

Quilt block, America, economy

Posted on February 19, 2009 at 6:30am 6 Comments

I was just commenting to Mustangquilt's page. She had commented that 40 people are being laid off from a mine in her area today and how that saddens her. While commenting, an idea sprung into mind (that is an amazing feat on its own!!!).....wouldn't it be a good idea if we started making a quilt block on how this economy is affecting us all and an idea of how we think we can help to recover!!!! I think this would be a comforting block for some, and ideas could come forward like crazy and maybe… Continue

Today I joined Quilt with us and I see there are a number of people on the site which is a really nice plus. We have had yet another 6 inches of snow last nite!! The banks are really getting high. We had some nice weather, but tomorrow they are calling for -20* below 0 and high winds ---- gotta have some of the snow blowing around just so there is no mistake we live in WI!! Right now I am working on a table runner for a friend. It is in blues and yellow. My pups are at my feet so hoping they… Continue

Hi Sharon, Just want you to know I'm thinking about you.
Hope you had a nice summer. I'm trying to get caught up on house work and sewing. Those trips to Bangor put a crimp in both, but my sister is done with that leg of the recovery and I'm home more. I have so many projects to do before Christmas and the alterations keep pouring in. I sew just so long when I have to take a day or two away from it. That's when I take at the house and give it a good cleaning. It's hard to keep up when people bring stuff in and want it "yesterday". I hope all is well with you and your family.

Hi Sharon, So glad to hear from you. I take it your from England. My friend Jenny Taylor who has a page on QWU is from Herne Bay, Kent. I went over to visit with her and Dave in 2005. What a wonderful trip it was. My ancesters came from England and Wales. So getting over there had special meaning to me. Jenny and I met in a sewing chat room and hit it off right away. She and hubby visited the States every year so I asked them to come East .They did twice and then wanted us to go visit them. Bud does not travel any more then he has to so I went alone.
I am going to try and get some sewing done tonight. B is out for the evening and I just LOVE an evening to myself. Actually when he is home I'm pretty much by myself as he sits in his chair asleep. lol
I'm glad you got a chance to visit with your loved ones. Thank you for the prayers for my sister. ~ Irene

Hi Sharon, Are you having a nice summer? I haven't heard from you in awhile so expect things are pretty busy. I have had a really busy summer. We went to Indiana the last two weeks of June. We came home and I went to a sewing retreat, then we had company from N.Y. Last week our guild had a float in the Bicentiennal parade which meant making our dresses. (see pictures on my page). While out in Indy. I learned that my sister was having surgery for blockage of the bowel. She has to go to Bangor (200 miles round trip) for radiation 5 days a week. I take her two of those days. She is two years younger then me (65).
It is very hot here in the East right now. In the 90's. But the nights cool down enough to be able to sleep. I don't have air condition. For the most part we don't need it. My house stays cool even on hot days. I open the windows at night and draw in the cool air with fan's and then close it up the next day and it's comfortable. The way the weather changes here one day can be 90 and the next day down to 60 so I don't bother with air.
I hope your having a nice summer. ~ Irene

Hi Sharon, I'm glad you got the CD. I thought you might have been away as I didn't hear from you except to tell me your address and wish me a Happy Mothers Day. Our choir did, We Want America back in church last Sunday for Memorial Day. I'm still working the the prom gown. I have to have it done by Fri. I finally had to tell EVERYONE last week that I would not be available this week for anything as I had a deadline to meet and I'm already running late. So hopefully by the end of today I will be nearing the end of it. ~ Irene

Hi Sharon, Did you get the CD I sent? I hope you enjoy listening to it.
It is beautiful here today and it's soooooo nice to feel the heat in the sun again. I'm working on a gown for my granddaughters prom. I have to put the embrodery on it today. If people would leave me alone I would have had it done long ago but I keep getting pulled away by having to take people to appointments out of town or house work that gets behind if I don't stop sewing to do it. Not to mention my clients bringing in more and more alterations. (But they are paying customers so they come first). Have a great day.

Hi Sharon, I see Hapybren has supplied you with the words to We want America back. I asked my choir director if she would cut you a CD and she said she would but that was before Easter so I need to remind her again. Easter Season was extremely busy for her getting us ready for the Cantata etc. I will make a note and put it in my bible bag so I can remember to ask her again.
I am making a tote bag for our Shop-Hop tomorrow. The one I have been using is getting really worn so I thought I would make a new one.
It has embroidery on the front. I will post a picture sometime soon. I have been out-straight with alterations and have to start a prom gown for my granddaughter the first of the week. We are going to Indiana in June for two weeks and I think it will be good to get away for awhile.
It's so good to hear from you. ~ Irene

We Want America Back!!!
by Jeff R. Steele
Stanza #1:
Something is wrong with America.
She once held the Bible as her conscience and guide.
But we’ve allowed those who hold nothing to be sacred,
Like Sodom of old, to push morals aside.
Where are the men who once stood for right?
And the women who championed their cause?
We must return to the values we lost,
Before this country we love is totally lost.
We want America back.
We want America back,
From those who have no self-control,
We want America back.
This nation is like a runaway train,
Headed down the wrong track,
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back.

Narrative to be used (before singing Stanza#2):
I love America. But I do not love what she has become.
Our children are asked to attend public schools that in many cases resemble war zones,
without even the most basic right of any soldier…the right to pray to the God of heaven.
Many times a wild-eyed, drug-addicted, gun-carrying teenager is allowed to stay in school,
while our Supreme Court decided to expel God from the classroom over thirty years ago.
Something is wrong. Television daily bombards the senses of our nation with the idea that wrong is right,
that the abnormal is normal, that the abhorrent is acceptable, and that what God calls an abomination is
nothing more than an alternate life-style. And it’s had an effect. Thirty years ago, the number one television
program in America was “The Andy Griffith Show.” Look what we have today. Something is wrong.
When our government can pass out contraceptives to children is school with out parental consent,
and yet the Gideons can no longer pass out the Bible on campus…something is wrong.
When our leaders can tell your children and mine that premarital sex is alright as long as it’s safe…yes…
something is wrong. And I for one am ready for a change. I will say to my government, “I’m not raising
dogs at my house; I’m raising children…created in the image and likeness of almighty God.
And I’m going to teach them the Bible. If the Bible says it’s right…it’s right.
And if the Bible says it’s wrong…it’s wrong.”
The only hope that America has is that Godly men and women will stand together as one might army and
declare to the immoral, the impure, the obscene and the foul,
“Your days of unlimited access the minds of America are over.
The army of God, that has been silent for too long, is taking America back!”

We want America back.
We want America back,
From those who have no self-control,
We want America back.
This nation is like a runaway train,
Headed down the wrong track,
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back.
It’s time for the army of God to arise,
And say we want America back!!

Hi Sharon, I just got my computer back today. It's been gone almost a month. I have my friend work on it and he had a very sick father who died so once he got his life back to normal he worked on my computer.
My choir director is going to make me a copy of that song and I will get the secretary to print the words and music off for me. I will try to get it as soon as I can.
I'm so glad to be back here. I have missed this site more then anything else on my computer.

Hi Sharon, It's so very nice to hear such kind and encouraging words from a fellow quilter. I'm so sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. But you are absolutely right. God is with us. He hears us and knows our pain, but He is definitely the hand of comfort, healing and strength from which we can draw thru hope and faith. Stay strong and if you can't actually quilt right now, at least keep up with this message board. These are some really uplifting and positive quilters around! Keep lots of quilting magazines and books nearby and maybe catch an episode of Sewing With Nancy or Fons and Porter on tv, or the computer even has episodes you can watch online. Take care and feel better real soon. God bless.
