hi annette!!! thanks for your kind words about my quilts. i have to say, i had no choice but to take pics in the snow, we had snow from oct until june last year. it was a loooong winter! hahaha!! i love your work! beautiful!
Thank you Annette ,you can by the book on Amazon, you can ask your local quilt store for my book it is in the mayors distributors , plus you can ask them to have me there for a trunk show and book signing ,
Thank you, Annette, for the "kudos" on my quilts. It's great that you've joined the paper-piecing group. I have learned a great deal from that group. You have some beautiful blocks ... as well as beautiful quilts, too!
"Hooter"? I don't know how Mia would feel about that, but Mitzie would be offended! I am sure they are both high-class torties who wouldn't want to be connected in any way with that restaurant/club. LOL
As for buying fabric, I do about half online and since I like to actually feel the fabric about half at quilt shops. I have two daughters living in Lincoln, so 3 or 4 times a year I get to go there. Just takes a bit of planning to know what I will need. I do study the fabrics I see advertised in quilt magazines and when I find what I really liked online then I know I can order that and be pretty confident of the quality.
Thank You Annette for inviting me to be your friend. I hope we get to chat someday. I have a little trouble trying to chat as the chat pauses and freezes but I do enjoy chatting so I put up with the aggravation. It just takes me longer to respond. Your quilting is beautiful. I love the bird wall hanging.
Thank you for the nice comment. We are probably 375 miles from Fremont - the opposite end of the state! We are 90 miles west of North Platte, 80 miles east of Scottsbluff. I used to live in North Bend, NE, 15 miles from Fremont. I remember living back there where the towns were closer together - civilization! Now the closest LQS is 50 miles away.
So nice getting you comment. We have a trip planned to go to PA when the nice weather comes. You guessed it. Lancaster area. Have never been over there since we live in the Amish and Menonnite area. The quilt shop I go to is Menonnite with 11,000 bolts of material. That's a lot of fun. You do beautiful work too. I made a Jacobs ladder quilt in 2010 for my grandsons graduation. You guessed it. His namer is Jacob.
Have a nice nice and keep warm. It is 25 degrees here.
Thanks so much for your friend request. It will be fun to have another person to chat with. I do most of my quilting in the winter months (don't we all) . We have a mutual friend in Gayle, from La). In fact we are in a block swap right now. She is a really great person and active in the group. I am in North Central Ohio. Betwee Cleveland and Columbus. The on the fringes of the snowbelt. But we do get our share. I reired in 2008 and love every minute of it. You have some very nice quilting pictures here. I love looking at what others have created
\Thanks for you comments. This is my second round on QWU. I took a break several months ago and discontinued my membership But unlike FB where I can do that and then come back and all my previous photos and friends are still there, when you leave this site and come back you have to start all over. So I have not posted much since I rejoined. Maybe I will go through some of my photos and see if I can repost them. I doubt the person you referenced in your comment is related to us. But you never know.
I'm sorry I missed you on chat today. I would love to have chatted with you. I love looking at the beautiful quilt blocks you made. You do perfect points. Something I have yet to master. (except for paper piecing) I'm not consistant in getting perfect points. But each time, I try harder in hopes of doing better.
Putting the Christmas ornamnets in a bag is probably a good idea. You've have to report on how the project goes over with the group.
Sounds like you have a great weekend planned. Our daughter invited us to join them on their farm place about 30 mi. from us, so will spend the 4th eve with them. I don't much like to drive home after the fireworks when it's dark, but guess we can manage. Happy 4th to you!
Christmas in July sounds like a fun project. What do you do with the ornaments when everyone brings them to guild? We have not tried anything like that. July is always our guild Birthday Party and we have a potluck dinner and games of some kind. This year they are having a themed cake decorating contest since it is our 25th anniversary as a guild for those who want to participate instead of bringing a potluck dish.
