Linda I am so sorry about you being unable to have the surgeries.Mine were done over a 15 year period with the last knee being done 2 years ago. My doctor says if I can get by he…"
"Oh Linda, I am in a close relationship with Art myself. He sure does get around. I have had both knees replaced as well as my right hip. Art's been messing around with my left hip now for some time. I want so bad to be…"
"Yes I can see that Riana is a finisher. It sounds to me that she is very involved with groups and teaching. I imagine that would keep you on the right track, setting an example and all that. Having said that where are all…"
"Lisa, my best friend was a person that started a quilt and finished it before she started another project. I could not understand this behavior, it was totally foreign to me. I've got her straightened out now, she is not quite as bad as…"
"You girls are amazing. I have been very lax about my commitment to finishing things. I have finished a few, but you girls are cranking them out like crazy. I let myself be lured into to many new projects, such as the block…"

"Every time I neaten up and put things away in suitable spot they are gone forever or found when I am looking for something else I put away so I'd know where it is. The mess is better I know where everything is, well almost everything."

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been quilting for about 20 years, I am retired from hotel management. I have a lot of time on my hands, due to some health problems I am not as active as I once was. I do belong to my local guild, local Project Linus group and block of the month at my local quilt shop. I have 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 14 great grands. They keep me pretty busy making quilts, etc. None of them live near us so I do miss that. I love to see what other quilters are doing and I also like to do some swaps, thats always fun.
How many quilts have you made?
Lost count a long time ago
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
LOve making then and enjoy them both
How long have you been a quilter?
about 20 years
What is your favorite quilting technique?
I am a hand quilter, I enjoy traditional and historic best but have done some modern.
Why do you quilt?
Because I love to, it's my way of being creative and the people I give them to enjoy them and that gives me great satisfaction

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December.
This year we had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.
So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!
