Thanks Jean, for returning my message. I am glad you are doing well. And so much understand for not being able to get on. You sound like a very busy women. Maybe after the holidays you'll be able to get back on. I think others have been busy and not on as much because of getting ready for for the holidays. Your quilts are beautiful. Please take care and hope to see you on when your able.

Jean where are you?? I haven't seen you for a long while.

I'm not exactly a spring chicken either, Jean. I raised my children in that area and my baby just turned 40. And there was a JoAnn Fabrics there at that time. I took in alterations back then and was always running in there for something. Then I started making some of their models for the flyer and working in the store part time. I had a full time job too. No wonder I was always worn out!!!

Hugs.

Jean, where do your siblings live? I'm surprised we didn't meet all those years I lived in Aurora Shores. I worked part-time in JoAnn Fabrics in Solon too. I look forward to meeting you.

Hugs.

must have been turn-the-idiot-cell-phone-drivers-lose day. was heading a few towns over to go quilt w my q group this morning. as i was passing the state patrol truck weight/speed trap building on the interstate, i looked up in rearview mirror to see car speeding up behind me weaving in the lane. it sped up and passed me still weaving. i thought hmph! a bit early to ve that drunk! looked over at him as he passed.. a guy -head down, one hand on the wheel, no eyes on the road ...so obviously texting. idiot. fortunately we were beyond area of yesterday snow..clean dry pavement.

where in socal? i'm a native of ventura county. yes, sometimes emails are difficult to keep up with, but as you say...fun:)). drive carefully, be as safe as you can ---with weather like the midwest and east is having now, i always found the danger was more often the other drivers driving too fast for conditions, losing control and creating havoc for others. same for here also, when we have winter, unlike this year :((. oh well ...take care

this one ?

http://myquiltplace.com/photo/norwegian-carousel-wall-hanging?xg_source=activity

it was made by mary moore while on a quilt cruise w doreen speckman in norway. all norwegion fabrics she said. i love the bright colors also. i have a wooden spoon & stand my hubs grfather brought from norway years ago after visiting family there. all these bright yellow $ brilliant reds in the designs.

don't worry ..the names will come. couple years here & i still have to go back & forth between comment & persons home page to remember who they are & where they're from.

yes, can be a wee bit of a lag, a little difficult to keep up while traveling. tho it sorta makes for fun catch up time in motel when we get in late after a long day on the road, dinner & finally settle in for night. log in to MQP, catch up and fall asleep tired from the day, but w a smile from the catch up reads. with cureent weather across the eastern 2/3 of US, do be safe, but enjoy your travels.
