Making decisions and living in chaos

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on May 15, 2018 at 12:00pm 2 Comments

Hello Campers:

I have not posted since winter had us by the throat and would not let loose (it lasted til the end of April, for God’s sake) so here I am again to give you an update on what is happening around the quilting house of Leiner Inc.  In a nutshell, I am stuck on making quilt tops (and only quilt tops) that have “inchers,” or one inch squares as I am told they are called.  There is a reason for this, of course.  There always is a reason and that is the story for…

A Tired Old Dog learns a New Trick

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on January 19, 2018 at 9:00pm 5 Comments

I haven't talked about it much here but I have decided I am a tired old dog.  I have an excuse of course.  Every old dog does and here is mine.

In March 2017, I had my artificial knee on the left replaced with a new artificial knee as the old one came loose and moved left.

In October 2017, they determined the right artificial knee was infected and took it out, replacing it with a spacer for 5 weeks.  Turns out they were wrong, it was not infected (good news for me) but the…

Made the local paper with a piece about Ruby's Christmas Quilt

Posted by Virginia "Ginnie" Leiner on January 13, 2018 at 9:34pm 0 Comments

It's January and apparently a slow news week.   I made the newspaper (print and online version) with a short video and print interview about quilting.  The reporter, Shirley, is a museum friend and called asking me if I would like to talk about quilting.  Can you imagine me saying no???

She asked me to bring my latest project so I brought in Ruby's Christmas quilt.  The top is finished and I think I will wait until I have Sylvia's done as well before I pin and quilt them both.  Maybe…
