Mary, If you were looking up the quilt that I had written about , you have the right quilt. It is the yellow work Chicken sampler by Laurie Simpson. It is made of 670 1" hexagons with 5 pieces 14" sq. with chickens embroideried on them. You then build the hex's around these. It is really a beautiful quilt. I hope I can take a picture of mine . Never put any pictures on this thing before.
Hope you enjoyed Lauries book Donna DJRustic
Shelia I just saw your post about not being able to get any information from the order status box, this is what I have been doing and it has worked every time. I copy the number that is in the box that pops up and open another tab and google fedex tracking, when that comes up I paste the number into the box on the fedex site and hit track. The information has always come up for me usually starting at Grover City Oh. I hope this helps and I haven't totally confused you!
Hi - have to share something funny - my DS (20yrs) was looking at my list for the EPP exchange - he studied the politics and history of USA this year - so going through the states and cities - he goes wow.... you someone in NY city - and then I got another wow - right on Broadway............ but it was very funny - because he hasn't been in the city him and he is always bugging the oldest one - ( because he was there 3 times .. at the UN participating in a .. sort of debate between schools and they represent countries) so he his hoping to go soon - we have pass through but not stop.. sorry I had to share
I am writing this on your page since it is OT (off topic). No, No, No, don't sell your car,, you never know when you might need it...
But in case you are serious and need the money, by all means sell... but I wouldn't, but that's just me...
Hi MaryAgnes - were did you come up with your dog's name........... and I am not thinking about the chouxchoux one,,,,,,, - I bet he answers more with the last one.... you were talking about snow the other day - we don't get alot in the city here too but are expecting one tomorrow - between 8 to12 inchs.... - will let you know -
Thanks for the city quilting info. Will definitely check them out. Have non-quilting girlfriend who is always saying we should go in and walk around the city. Just may take her walking around the quilt shops. LOL Yes,I do remember the big dept. stores selling fabric. Seem pretty soon we'll be talking about "Remember when Walmart sold fabric?" since hey are now discontinuing it. I know there's always mail order but isn't it so much nicer to actually feel the fabric? I think so. Have a great day. I'm sure we'll talk again
Hey MaryAgnes, just want to say hi. We're "kind'a" neighbors, you in NYC and me in Suffolk County. When it comes to quilting I have a hard time finding people with the same interest out here. And definitely not too many quilt shops. But, still enjoy quilting. Son lives in Manhattan, where can I fabric shop when I visit him?
MaryAgnes, you asked if I made the baskets that I have pictures of and the answer is yes I did. I just love basket weaving. I am just into too much that I really enjoy that I don't have time to keep up with everything.
just found your reply. what ails me is not fixable by drs or pills. i dont do pills anyhow. there is only one cure, that is the final cure and i have to wait for that to come when it comes. it was the final cure for someone i love dearly only 4 months ago today and i will never stop missing him or wanting him to come home. i still dont understand why he did what he did, why he left his brother and sister to carry on life without him around. nope, no cure for what ails me.
Hi Mary, For the Shop Hop, we had to buy a "passport' $5, which entitles you to prizes and a discount at each store.
I know what you mean about meetings, I missed at least half of the Brooklyn Guild meetings this year because of other commitments. Small world, as I brought my machines at Sew Right too. I guess all the NYC quilters go to the same places.
Hi Mary, About the Shop Hop. It takes place the weekend of July 10th,11th and 12th. The shops involved are "Pieceful Quilting" in Riverhead and In Northport, "Sew What's New" in East islip, "Sentimental Stitches" in Cold Spring Harbor, "The Quilting Bug " in Massapequa and "Patchworks' on Main St. in Sayville. Riverhead is pretty close to The Hamptons if your out that way. Do you go to"City Quilter"in Manhattan? I belong to a guild in Brooklyn that's subway friendly, [ f train] if you ever feel the need to join a group.
Well the email must have been something to do with that but I have no idea what I said except that I was not insulted about you correcting me and I had no idea what I had written that would have had the separate and criticism in it so there we go. Maybe we should just start over from scratch eh? It is awful getting old and forgetful. Ha Anyway have a good day!
