Hi Ana, Thanks for commenting on my blog posts. I'm almost finished with a big project - the Double Wedding Ring quilt for my daughter. I'm looking forward to working on some other projects. This one has taken most of my time for the past year.
Ana Maria, I've just looked at all your quilts and other things and they are beautiful. Your trip to the US will be so wonderful traveling in a motorhome. As you can see in my picture, we have a MH and love traveling to see so many places. You've the option to stop whenever you want and stay as long as you want. Enjoy staying in your own motel on wheels with your own bed, bath and kitchen. Sharon
Thanks for looking at my photos. I have added a few more. None are perfect, we can always find something to improve upon. I see from your photos that you like to sew a lot of different things. Love your bags. I see that you tackled a big quilt for your bed. What an accomplishment!
Thanks for your comment on my Jacob's Ladder quilt, with Whitie the cat! She is precious to us, never heard about white cats and the sun. She is part siamese too, so she meows lots and needs attention. We have had her over 16 years. I haven't been on this site in awhile, so your comment got me interested again in checking it out :) thanks!
Thank you for the compliments. Your work is wonderful. I am starting to do FMQ classes and love teaching them. I enjoy the classes as much as I love quilting. I would love to see pictures of where you live.
Hi Ana...thank you for the comment about being a writer. I can tell a good story, but when it's time to write, I freeze up! Your quilts are wonderful. I visited Spain years ago and loved it. Quilting is one of those addictions that you can't find a cure for! Just keep adding to it!!
Hi Ana! I love Spain...visited Costa Del Sol...and the people were lovely too.
You've made some beautiful quilts there! And it really is a never ending journey...every time I start a quilt I say to myself...this is a learning experience! LOL. This gives me permission to mess up without getting too bent out of shape. Look forward to sharing the journey with you.
Hi Ana Maria! My (late) brother used to live in Ponferrada but I never got to visit him there. I did receive many nice gifts and post cards though - Spain is a beautiful country and your quilts are beautiful too!
Sewing/quilting is a life long learning experience. I took sewing in high school (graduated in 19600) and bought my first machine in 1963 and have been sewing ever since. I didn't start quilting until about 12-13 years ago. I'm still learning as it's a changing craft with new technology and tools to work with. Even the fabrics change. So take your time and enjoy your journey.
Hi Ana, It was so good to hear from you! I'm glad you had a nice holiday with your children. We enjoyed our holidays as well. Our son was home for about 3 weeks, but our daughter was home just for 4 days at Christmas. I hope to go visit her this weekend.
I am not a very good machine quilter, either, so your class sounds like it would be a big help. I still enjoy looking through your quilt pictures.
It is snowing here tonight, but mostly the wind is blowing hard. Until now, we have had good weather and mild temperatures all winter, which is not normal for us. Happy quilting!
Hi Ana Maria. So good to hear from you. Your quilts are beautiful. I agree with you that there is more time to quilt now that the kids are grown. I'm not sure I'm using my time very well, because I think I made more progress on my quilt projects when they were home! What are your boys studying at university? I can't imagine having a daughter working in another country. Having mine live just 4 hours away seems like a great distance. Have a good week!
