"Pam, I got a box from Ginny last year. I use so many of her presents everyday I get to quilt. She is a star!
Good for the folk who open early. If I ever get to the P.O. I will be bad too.
Joanie, can you post a picture of the…"
"Hi all you busy in Dec. folk. With the cooler weather we are out cutting brush and trees to try to make our house more defensible for the next fire season. It is a little like trying to make yourself fix the roof in dry weather. We…"

Deanna, Sounds like a really worthwhile trip to reconnect family. Awhile back, my Mom and I visited cousins we hadn't seen in 40 years, and it was the strangest familiar comfortable visit. They kind of…"

Hi Mary, I'm new to the site. Was reading one of comments and you mentioned a friend was going to do your 365....what is a 365? I just moved to central PA and only 1 tiny quilt shop. I'm spoiled from living in Houston TX most of my adult life, then near Charlotte NC for about 10yrs. Both had great quilt shops. Houston's International Shows were mind blowing and made me feel so inferior that I didn't make a thing for years. Finally accepted we all can do great things, just in different ways. Now, I also enjoy designing. Don't have any quilting friends here yet, but once I join guild that should change. Hope to get an expert Amish lady to teach me hand quilting. Since you have so many friends in here, do you know if anyone ever does a 10 inch sq exchange or even a fat qtr or half yard? Thanks
A wise computer person told me to just remove the Q on my keyboard, blow on it and on the board to clean it and look, I now have a working Q. I had long since forgotten my password and had to reset it. I can now find you again on this site. I will have to play around again with it, I am sure, to find the newer things. This will help till the other issue is resolved. Doubt your quilting friends will want to see my coloring projects.
Hi Mary, haven't been here for quite some time. Thought I would make 2015 a more active year here. Hope all is well with you. Have you had some of that snow stuff? Bitter cold here but not rain or snow are in our future.
Mary, I wasn't sure if I was going to get a snowman on there. I looked for my narrowest pattern and prayed. I thought I'd have to leave the little one off but managed to squeeze him on too. That was last year's snowman. I have 2 new ones for this year. I just love the folk art look of your quilt. I have a friend here this weekend for a sewing marathon and I just had to show her your quilt. She loved it!!
Wish we could have tea too. I'd make my cranberry scones. I get a lot of requests for them. I forget where you live. Indy and I had so much fun meeting Barbara and her husband when we went to my brother's in Wisconsin. Can't wait till next summer IF we go back up there.
Mary, I tried. I really did! I tried 4 different photos to change my profile pic and got an error every time! The files are much smaller than the max allowed, and one will load to the pics on my page but not on profile. I give up!
