Hello! This is SO much fun, finding friends from all over the place! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes, and as soon as I become more expert at this blog thing, I'll be better at figuring out how to find out other people's birthday dates, and adding photos of my quilts.
Happy quilting! Nice photos!
Thank You for the kind birthday wishes.
I'm new to the site. And my knowledge of the computer is slim and none. It was the first time I have ever posted anything. I had left a comment on a cute interview I had read.
It was really nice to hear from another quilter. I was really surprised. Again Thank You for the kind birthday wishes. Karin
Are those pictures above of things you have made? There really nice.
Thank you very much for the kind wishes.
It's great to hear from fellow quilters in another country
I look forward to one day visiting the US and buying
Lots of fabrics at such a reduced price compared
with what we have to pay in the UK.
Best wishes Jan
Sounds like you have an expanding family to love,care,and share with.Busy wk.quilting on hold for making a cheerleader outfit,box pleats,fun.fun/fun. Anyway completed now and ready forquilting again but tommorow is a day out with the girls.I guess you could say i'm in need of some adult cons.
Thank you, Linda--I'm glad you like my DWR. I was going to make it in 1930's repros but decided on impulse to use my collection of Thimbleberries and other fall fabrics. Everyone in my guild was showing beautiful fall quilts at the time and I got "hungry" for some rich, deep colors.
I love to do hand piecing I have not done EPP yet, but I have books and patterns and even cut out some pieces just have to sit and put them together...maybe this group will motivate me to get back into it...
Hello Linda, Thank you for your post to me. I am back, yet you just never know how long it will be for. My case for my lungs is so hard on me. I never knew I would have to do so much.... when the lawyers are the ones who get most of the money. Other than that... I have been busy with my daughter who has gone through some difficult times with the procedure for trying to have a baby. We are now just waiting until this up coming Monday to hear if she is positive. My daughter has been a wreck. I have been trying to be there for her, even though we live far away from each other. I have explained to her lots of prayers have been said. God is handling this for them right now.
Soon we will know. She snuck and took a test on the 8th day... and it is positive. That gave her more hope. I feel it will be, as I requested this from God to help this dream come true for them.
Quilting, and feeling rather well these days. Cheri this Sat. will be 1 year old. So DH and I are going down to have a little party for her with my parents. Making cupcakes and Cheri will get to have one. My parents love Cheri so much. She is such a cute puppy! She wipes her feet when coming in the from outside. Its something to see. It is very nice to hear from you! Hope all is great with you and your hubby.? Chat soon!!!!!!!!oxoxoxoxoox Hugs Morgan
Hi Linda (my first name, by the way!
Sisters is (according to google maps) 143 miles away or 2 hrs. 39 minutes. Not that far...lodging is the tricky part although I know someone who has a place in Sun River...I shall beg to sleep on their couch or floor!
Your quits and other projects are stunning. The last two years we have been remodeling and I've just painted the entire house, deck and railings! Almost done and looking forward to "winter projects" such as finishing (many) quilts (are you familiar with the Jane Austin quilt she and her mom and sisters made? All triangles)--I'm putting a regular border on it, the Dear Jane quilt (done in turkey reds), and two blending quilts from In the Beginning (one of which has the triangle border ala Jane)--and finishing mosaiking my kitchen island. You will find a picture of the design I'm following in (no surprise her) Kaffe's book on Mosaics! It's the table with the transfer ware plates, but I'm decoupaging sheet music (having to do with roses, as does almost everything else in my life) on the legs. I've also built a pond and waterfall. Oh, when we lived in Michigan, we made the train trip to Toronto every year for the "Gathering of the Clans." Loved Toronto. Love bagpipes. Love reading! Love Kitties--"Gracie Rose a rescue Siberian Forest Cat is helping me type--, Love lots of things...don't even get me started about grand kids!

Thanks for the offer of a place to visit on our potential vacation. I would love to stop and see your work in person. It is so admirable by photo! Since we travel pretty self contained in a truck camper, we are pretty inconspicuous guests.
It will be next summer of even the summer after. Every thing in our household morphs with time. Right now, we are hoping to get a commitment from DD to join us for a few days and go to the UP seeing if we can organize an extended family picnic/reunion for a day. The other scheduling "difficulty" is DS's wedding in California in Sept 2011. Having to ration leave time from work is starting ti stiffle my plans!
Your generosity moves me. Thanks!
