"My secret garden is coming back together nicely this year. I only lost 2 plants over the winter. I'm seeding some bare areas and hoping they will fill in by end of summer."

Quilt Show and Concert with Dave Anderson and Roger Walck

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 9:21pm 4 Comments

Saturday, October 26, 2013

The afternoon was very pleasant and a surprise because Dave and Roger came to my home and spent the afternoon with me. I can't remember the last time I've had such a relaxing afternoon. They loved Indy and I think Indy loved them because he didn't growl and bark at them. Dave asked to lay down for half an hour. So Roger asked to see my gardens and Indy needed out anyway. We walked around for a while and Roger liked my Secret Garden. We then went back into…

Sneak Peak to my Remodeled Sewing Room

Posted on March 17, 2013 at 7:38pm 16 Comments

The moment is almost here when I can finally move back into my sewing room.  Right now I can move in the Elna, but I'm trying to figure out a way to bring in the Pfaff too. I have a friend who comes over and sews strips and/or squares for me. I.m trying to figure out if the small table will fit and still give me enough room to move around without being too constricted. . Let me explain some of the changes. I've had new windows put in. They've already been tested thanks to Mother Nature; and…

Thanks Linda, I'll look forward to next year and keep an eye on all the goings on this year

Yes, you definitely deserved to have a good time! I feel the same after attending a good quilt show. So inspired and intimidated! I have a lot to learn and in so many ways, I, too, feel like a novice, even after all these years of quiltmaking. 

At 9:37am on September 20, 2016, Ginny Andersen said…

So many amazing quilts! I couldn't pick a favorite! I would imagine you were on overload in the quilt inspiration category, weren't you?! What a wonderful day!

Thanks Linda! Please keep me in mind for next year!

I love your idea on having a group from QCA, since it was or became such a small group we all really got to know each other well. Roxana is now on here too, so maybe we can get the SS over here...since she took it over and I am sure that she would need help.

Why don't you see about going the QCA group on here since you posted about this site and we are all jumping ship from the  site.  Maybe call is "QCA life raft"

Thankyou, Linda...but at 2:30 a.m? l had hopes you'd get through the nights better since the bed got moved & you didn't need to sleep in recliner. Still, haven't seen you on midnightchats too often lately...taking that as a good sign:) How's your brother's Christmas quilt coming...or are you stuck because of eye problems?

Dear Linda,

You comment on the Ohio Star brought to mind one of Paul and my best trips.  We were in Cincinnati for a Nat'l Square Dance Convention.  I hadn't really been looking forward to that destination-but was so surprised at what a beautiful town it was near the convention center, river, downtown.  We went to museums, a ball game, and met so many friendly people.  And learned about buckeyes and flying pigs. The humidity didn't arrive until our last day.

When I look at Indy and your house, I see a safe haven ark; hope it works for you to stay there.

Iris' have the most personality.  I have a large bed that I must have planted too deeply.  When the ground softens, I shall retry and think of you while I work.

What bird is in the bird house?

Beth forgot to give me pins, sewing needles, and a ruler. You saved the day.

The small quilt repeats Ginny's, I like the bit of continuity.

Do wish we could have tea together.  I would even try to make Russian tea balls.

Grandkids love that you gave us snowmen.  We so need a lot of any moisture in CA.

Thank you for putting so much imagination into my row,  Mary
