Quilt With Us

Dear Friends,
This year is ending and the new year is beginning the moment the old year ends. That's the way life is---just when we think something is ending, something new is beginning. I'm with my son in Arizona just where I was last year, but a whole 365 days have come and gone inbetween my visits. Looking out his windows I see catus and sand and palm trees---a much different scene than I would see from my windows in North Dakota. This year my town (Grand Forks) got 24 1/2 inches of snow so I'm sure that my patio is filled.

This week I had a fun visit to a local quilt show and lunch with a new friend from our quilting community. We sure didn't have a problem finding things to talk about! I think that all quilters are sisters! I appreciate friendly and caring tone of all the posts that I read and feel privileged to be part of this group. I don't post too often but do enjoy the pictures and posts that I read daily. Hopefully I'll get some project done so I can send a picture while I'm here in Arizona! Happy New Year to you all! Love, Ginger

Ginger - I'm so glad you got to spend time with Cornwoman. I only know her from our online friendship, but she is such a great lady. How fun. We miss winters, especially, in Arizona. We lived there four years before having to move north again. If you get out to Tortilla Flats be sure to have some Prickly Pear Ice Cream -- I love it!!!!

Hi Ginger, My daughter lives in Minot, they got 24 inches of snow and up to 10 feet snowdrifts. They are still digging out. I don't miss ND when they have that much snow. I am in NH and we are waiting to see if we get over a foot of snow this weekend. Enjoy the cactus... lol

Sorry, it is Hearts and Faces Connect Group. Join that group Ginger so you can share your experience of meeting someone from QWU.

Well, here in Northern Ontario, like N.D. we do not have to pretend. (ha). Hot chocolate sure sounds good though. Ginger, glad you don't have to contend with the snow at home right now. Enjoy the cactus, sand and palm trees. Don't forget to post some pictures to the group Heart to Heart I think it is called when QWU sisters get to meet.

Hey, PQ! Those of us who live here feel cold enough to drink hot chocolate or Chamba Chai Lattes during the month or two that we have cooler temps. lol We have good imaginations and know how to pretend that it's cold enough to snow. lol And in some parts of the state (further north than we are!) it does snow. Friends email me snow pictures, which I put as my desktop and pretend all the time. lol

I really want to visit AZ some day, around it's bloomining time I think! I've heard alot about the 'artsy' places there.

Good to hear from you Ginger! Aren't you glad you're in Arizona instead of N. Dak. this time of year? :0)

I guess the downside is that you won't need as much hot chocolate there as you would up north...

Hugs from the Nebraska plains where it is snowing as I type!

Yes, a new beginning and the cycle of life once again makes another turn. It's nice to be enjoying some warm weather in Arizona. Do you spend the Winter there? Happy New Year.
