I will try to get in here and check in but I don't promise anything. We spent a long time with sickness and my cancer scare. Yes I had Colon Cancer and had to have surgery but no chemo or other treatments. Then we had a fire and lost our garage/storage building, That was a real terror. I am still fighting with the insurance for what is rightfully ours. It is a case of same old, same old. I think I will try to look you up on facebook and see if we can connect. Thinking of you always.
Hi Aida, Hope you won't have a heart attack from getting a note from me, but, I was on the web page and thought that I would check and see how many are still online. lol Well, I really don't think that I will be on here very often but could not pass up the chance to say "Hi!".
Hi Aida, I live in Rutland, VT. I'm going to White River Junction this morning with hubby for a doctor's appt. which is a little over an hour from here. We should meet up sometime when the weather gets better.
Aida, yes winters weather is here a bit early, the weatherman is saying it should get back to more seasonal temperatures next week hopefully he is right. Maybe the storm you are expecting will miss your area. I'm Sorry to say my knowledge of your part of the world is quite lacking. Are winters there very cold and snowy? Here's hopeing you get lots of quilting time in. Enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for reading my post.
Nice to hear from you Aida. I feel like we are neighbors. lol As soon as I get my health straightened out I want to buy the Janome 2014. I have a small 12 lb Janome that I bought to take to classes but I want one with more stitches for when my Husqvarna/Viking goes for servicing. I buy my Janome's at The Fabric Garden in Madison Me. I had her holding one for me but ended up in the hospital so had to call and cancel it. Will wait for her next sale.
Aida, thank you for your wonderful offer, but Bailey is growing out of size 6 now too. She is a big girl, only 4 years old. I am really enjoying sewing for her.l I need to make her doll something with the leftover fabric - almost forgot about that. Thank you!
Hi Aida, Hope your doing well, was wondering how the house selling is going? we have about 2 1/2 weeks to go,,getting excited and now wanting to go is more than evident. I hope your doing well my friend.
Aida, It is not that I am complacent - not by a long shot! I loved living there and enjoyed the land and its people. Rather than complacence, it is more of a realistic outlook. I said the same thing when Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast and I lived there for more than 8 years! My DH went through Hurricane Camille in Gulfport, MS. Absolutely, it is not complacence but realism that prompts me to say what I said. I'm sorry if you were offended by it - that was not my intention. Instead, I was trying to help people understand that too many people underestimate the power of Mother Nature. When warned to evacuate, people should do so rather than to say, "Oh, we've been through it before - we'll be okay". It's entirely the wrong attitude to have. People all around the world are the same. These types of things will not end until people begin changing their attitudes. Absolutely it's not complacence but, an effort to explain how these disasters are so devastating. Most people haven't been to areas such as this and wonder how these things can happen.
Aida, That's what I seem to do, too. Walk into my quilt room, look around, touch some things and turn around and walk out again sure that I'll feel like tackling some of those projects "tomorrow." :) Or, I'll get to that just as soon as I finish up this...
I'm sure one day I'll wake up and can't wait to get started back in again. Until then, I appreciate all the suggestions and encouragement.
Thank you for your comment on my cat quilts. They were a lot of fun to make and they sure are getting a lot of use. The girls sleep with them every night. Now that it's hot, my dgd rolls hers up and sleeps with her arm over it, hugging it.
