BJ, those dolls with the girls' faces on them are way too cute! I think I'll try something like that for our little grand-niece. And I LOVE the cross quilt. Did you have a pattern for that, or is it your own design? It's beautiful. I'd like to try my own version of it. Your work is meticulous (you're my hero!)!
Hi BJ! Just popped in to say "hello". I think of you every time now whenever I'm watching or reading something by Jane Austen? Have you ever seen the series "Lost in Austen"? I think it's based on a book by the same name. It's about a modern day Austen fan who finds herself back in time in the middle of "Pride and Prejudice". Kind of silly, but it was fun to watch.
I really enjoyed looking at all of your projects. I really liked the doll house. It was cute and I think my daughter would like something like that so I will have to find the pattern and work on that for her. Thanks again.
BJ, Just wanted to say thank you for the thoughts and prayers for my daughter Sarah! I have posted updated information and wanted to let you know I appreciated the support during such a difficult time!
Hi BJ. Nice to meet you. Great minds think alike (you and my mom.) My mom thought Traci was a unique name at the time, but she made it more unique by using the 'i'. When I was in school, there were 5 others with the same name, but I was the only one with that spelling.
I love your doll house and the personalized dolls....so cute!!! What a great idea. I'd love to make one for my god daughter.
BJ, We called 3 Rivers and they only have 2 chairs, first come first serve. That tells me we have no chance. We are calling rental places there in Kennewick and I'm sure we can come up with something. I'm looking forward to a sorta day off. Only one parent is easily than 2. Anyway, thanks for the comment. Oh, by the way.....look for me. My little 1/4" photo was taken at Christmas so that's how I look and I'm 5'11" so I kinda stand out because of my height. Plus I'll have an onld gray hair'd lady in a wheelchair or walker with me. Can't be too many of us. Would love to meet you. See ya, maybe Friday?
Your work is beautiful BJ. Just love your Mariner's compass and your mariposa tea party. I have been thinking of doing something like that for over my kitchen counter. The Mariner's compass has always attracted me but I just haven't had the nerve to try it yet. One of these days maybe. Keep on aquiltin'.
I don't know what that flower is. We just moved into the house about six months ago and need to go to a flower nursery now and see what it is. the flower looks like an orchid almost but the bush is more like a thin leafed iris plant (bulb)
Yout tote is so cute. Looks like denim with flowers. I love it. How long did it take you to make it? I should do something like that. One of these days when I have time I'm going to look around on that group. Looks like fun. See, I just know it is going to work out for you and your sister to go together. I believe it!! You both deserve this time and day together. I am asking God for favor for you both!! Love, Linda
Hi Barb, I see you are online, the picnic was wonderful, had great weather and a great time. Been lifting up Bruce today. You have added many more pics. Your quilts are awesome!! Girl I am amazed at your talent. What a blessing you are to me. I hope you have a wonderful Lords day tomorrow and remember with "God All things are Possible" I praying your sister will still be able to go with you to the Tri-Cities Quilt Show. Love, Linda
Thank you so much It seems I broke the ribs during the five hours of continous throwing that put me in the hospital for 3 days a weeks ago, as well a bruised and/or torn muscles. They did do blood work to eliminate gall bladder involvement. my blogs will short I am using the mouse and on-screen key board. BUT I M HERE
I guess I am blessed with having Amy. tomorrow she will be 25. She has been very different with lots of work from cleaning up after her. We also have two sons 40 and 37, ( my husband's ). Amy does have a talent for choosing colors, so I love to take her fabric shopping to help me pick out fabrics. She can not sew and have taken the scissors to a few pieces, nothing major.
Your work is gorgeous! I have an HQ16. It is important that you remember to breathe as you quilt. Keep it relaxed and you'll do fine. Music does help find that if I don't take a break, even for 5 minutes, I tend to make mistakes. But I love my quilter. I have to check if I have the paint program on my computer. Thanks for the tip.
Thank you BJ. I have that paint program too on my computer. It will help me alot with training the brain. I have a hard time when I want to go to the left so I can practice this on that program! Thanks again
