Beth, all the best in your new cafe business. Don't know if it was this coming spring you are going to open your cafe or last spring but whatever - hope it goes real well for you. Hope you have a very happy birthday and all the best in the year ahead. Enjoy your day! Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2010.
I think chocolates and quilts are a perfect match, although I might add a great Tea. Where is Zortman? We have relatives in Bozeman. What a beautiful state Montana is. I'm glad you've enjoyed my photos. Photography is another love of mine that I try to fit in here and there.
In my family in addition to me being a BJ, we have a TJ, CJ and MJ.... all different J's. CJ is the one that has gone by that all his life. I came by BJ as an adult.
You've made some great quilts too. Being snowed in helps. When I lived in Arizona I used the hot hot summers as my time to shut myself up in my quilt room and sew and sew.
I'm so happy to have you in our BOM group! I've enjoyed reading all your helpful comments. It's wonderful to see everybody help each other out, and it makes my job a little easier.
I took a peek at your website and all the wonderful culinary skills you have. YUM! Everything looked positively delicious! You're a mulit-talented woman!
P.S. - My husband and I love what you named all your cows! Hilarous!!!
Thanks for your reply, Beth - guess he's probably not directly related but on the other hand, my grandfather Newman had a brother who lived in Saskatchewan so there may be a connection that way. Just too hard to figure out now since I think most of our Western relatives have passed away and we've lost track of their descendants. I've been meaning to give you the website for the quilt shop where I teach - the owner is also a Christian and home-schooled her kids until they started at a Christian High School and that's about the time she opened the shop, four years ago. The website is www.quilters-haven.ca so I hope you will take a look. Love the names of your cows!! KLB
As you can see, I'm not on my computer much! The group sounds interesting - I'll have to check it out. Your niece is getting married in Bozeman? Did she go to school here? How old is she? Maybe my kids know her. I have a 23, and 20-year old.
That Harvest Song is going to be spectacular. I really am sticking to my guns about finishing my UFOs. I started a "Day in the Country" by Indigo Junction several years ago and only got Oct to Feb done. So I have taken a lot of ribbing from my gal pals that I only have fall and winter in my house as Feb remains up til October LOL. So far I have managed to get Mar to June complete. Today I start on July to Sept. Once done I will post the completed project. Hopefully the snow has stopped coming for a few days and I can feel like going out and doing something. I have to go up to hospital at noon and help feed my mother in law as she isn't eating much these days. Well it is actually 1:37am, it was one of those nights that I snoozed from 6pm onwards and now I am wide awake, so I had better go do something to tire me out so I can actually sleep LOL night for now.
Hi Beth: How are things with you, are you able to get at any quilting these days. I actually did not get in my sewing room today, but will do some hand quilting tonight while I watch TV. I particularly like the Chef wallhanging.
I'm working on a teapot/tea cup table topper that was in an issue of Fons and Porter a while back. I'm hand quilting it, so its taking me a while. I'll have to post a picture when I get it done. I haven't quite figured out how to use this site yet; need to do some snoopin' around. We really like Bozeman, but your being in the boonies sounds appealing, too!
I started a new group called Northwest Quilters and would like to invite you to come and join. If you have any information about quilting events please share them and I look forward to getting to know you.
Hi Beth! I have never heard of Zortman, but looked on the map and see you are 1+ hours north of Lewistown. I am in Bozeman and we had tons of snow over the Christmas week. I see you are a Christian (yay - me, too!) and I love your quilt with the trees in the corners and a cabin in the middle. Beautiful! I am just a beginner quilter but do love it. Your lil' grandaughter is darling!
