Thanks for adding me as a friend! Love your work and lifestyle! Wish I could afford to stay home and quilt full time, lovely! Im a nurse and I work at a Medical Rehab unit. My son just got out of the Navy. He was a nuclear operator. Hes going to Knoxville collage on his GI bill and is working toward a doctorate in Physics. His wife just got her RN. My daughter is in collage and lives at home and my youngest is in high school. I love quilting and right now Im working on a beaded beach scene wallhanging done with Balis. Love your portraits especially.
I read your comment on my wall and couldn't figure out what you were talking about until I came to your page and saw the picture. It looks like it's very handy for travel. I've never been fortunate enough to go to a quilt retreat, but it's in my dreams.
Jean, wthe winery is located on SR 52 on the Ohio River in Manchester, Ohio. BUT, local liquor stores will stock it or order a few bottles for you. If you visit the winery, they have a restraunt overlooking the river, and will offer samples with your meal. Also another excellent wine is Haute Sautern from Mon Ami Winery in Sandusky, Ohio. As you can see, we prefer the medium sweet wines. The Haute Sautern is white and the restraunt there is 4 Star, I'm sure. Have a buffet on Saturday nights (I think) with King Crab legs on it!! The place is PACKED then!!! Moyers has another red, but I recommend highly the COUNTRY HOME RED. What are your favs?
Hey, Jean, welcome to Ohio Quilters! I see we have a couple things in common, being USAF and schnauzers! And speaking of wine, have u tried Moyer's (Ohio River Winery) Country Home Red? Have your local shop order some!! $7/bottle and everyone that knows it, loves it! Best seller here. Hope your intentions have become motivations now!!
Thanks for being a friend. These sites are great. Lots of ideas, and the friends are a lot of fun. Have you tried some of the pin cushions. Those are real easy...and great for gift giving. talk again...Anne
Hi Jean B. Yes..The sewing basket came out pretty nice. It is a real big one...my only complaint.. is that it is a little flimsy. Try something a little firmer for the bottom and sides but not too thick, as you want to be able to stitch thru it all. Good Luck with it..Finished product is fun to use. Anne
Actually, Jean, that is one of my first "trial and error" runs of free motion quilting on my new Bernette 82E. It is just a sewing machine and the first that I could drop the feed dog on in quite a few years. Just started out to learn free motion and am finally doing a little better.
Good morning, that would be great fun to meet. We usually meet at Fabric Shack to shop, then on to lunch and window shopping. I've been MIA lately because I'm watching my DGSs' while my DD and DSIL are in Vegas at a conference but when things get back to normal we'll make plans!
Welcome Jean, glad you joined OH Quilters. You will find them to be a great group of ladies, several of whom I had a chance to meet in person at the recent NQA show in Columbus. Sounds like you have a lot of quilting expertise that we would all love to hear about!
