I am sorry you are having such a busy and emotional time at the moment. Good news that your mum's cancer has not spread and an op is possible. Pity about your daughter's hand, I know what horse riding injuries are like, its the frustration that also goes along with it, especially at this time of year when they want to be out enjoying, she is young and heals quickly, it's patience. All the multi tasking a mother does and no degree for it, I think we mother's need a gold medal given the mental, physical and emotional gymnastics we have to perform. Take care all will be ok in the end, you are right the Birmingham quilt show is great, I am not going either this year after just getting over my op.
Hello Desiree, Thank you for your reply. I do enjoy my Brother Innovis but am sure I do not get the best out of it at the moment. I also have a bernina 180, bought it 2nd hand and did not get any instructions with it, or should I say no shop support, so have muddles through the best I can. I live in North Yorkshire which is the opposite end of the country from Cornwall. What do you enjoy about UK, its always interesting to know what people like.
Hello Desiree, thank you for inviting me to be your friend, I am delighted to accept. I look forward to chatting and sharing our joint hobby projects. A little busy at the moment with a charity I help with, its their 50th anniversary this year and I do the publicity for them and co ordinate the 50th celebrations, so there is much to do as you can imagine. I try to leave a little time for my sewing too, not as much as I would like though.
Thank you Desiree' for your kind words about my quilt. It was a lot of work and took a long time. My MIL pieced it about 10 yrs. ago and then I did all the hand quilting and finishing. I am so happy it is done! LOL I love your pink tulip quilt. It is lovely! The room with the big table on your pictures, is that your sewing room? You are lucky to have such a big, nice place to quilt. Have a wonderful day! becky c.
Thank you Sussie for asking me to be your friend, I am honored and accept. It is wonderful to have friends all over the world. The computer has made our world smaller and love to hear from all who live afar. We had done extensive travel before my husband got sick but never made it to your area. We took a trip to Europe and did some genealogy in Germany as my family are all from there. My grandparents on both side of the family are immigrants coming to the US in the early 1900"s. Love to travel, it is a wonderful way to see all of God's creation.
Sounds like a nice area to live in Barbara!
I have only bin to Chicago once and it was at the airport :0)
I lived in Texas for a while almost 30 years ago!in a small town cald Belton.
I really enjoyed living in your country!
We live in the most southern point of sweden in Trelleborg by the sea
It's about 40 minutes to Copenhagen so we are quite close to Denmark.
I work as a preeschool teacher and enjoys that very much . I also work sometimes in a fabric store wich is alot of fun though you get to meet people who likes to be creative and to sew :0)
My husband works away from home alot so I'm quite busy with our kids aswell! Alot of driving ....
Winter has'nt arrived here yet! It is very warm for the season, plus 5 degrees celcius and no snow. Spring flowers has even started to come up from the ground.
Heard on the news what a cold winter you have in the States!
I would think that its no fun!
Now I have to go and get the dinner ready for my kids!
Have a nice evening!
It's morning here and very cold. We've had a snowy cold winter here. Had to break off the icicles that were forming at my roof line. They were getting too big.
I live in Illinois. It's in the middle part of USA. My little town is about 200 miles south of Chicago. A lot of Swedish immigrants settled in this area as well as in the state of Minnesota which is farther north. My area has a large number of farms that raise grains, cattle and hogs.
My mother in law spoke some Swedish. We live very near The Swedish settlement of Bishop Hill. Unfortunately, my husband passed away in 2008 and his mother had died the same year. But I still like to have a Swedish Christmas meal and blessed our oldest with a Swedish family name (Sven August Setterdahl). My boys are grown and have not blessed me with any grandchildren. Your home must be very busy with all those children.
Desiree, Kathy replied to your addition to the birthday list. So sorry that we have closed it for this year. Hope you will drop in to the Newbies group and join in on the discussion. My husband's family immigrated from Sweden. Love the Swedish heritage.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
And my new books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out mid 2014. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
