Thanks so much for the info. I am already excited about next years exchange. I have joined another exchange wile waiting. Instant gratification for me in 9" block exchange. I will have my Santa Suit all ready to go in 2018! Can't wait.
Thanks, Linda. I just assumed it was a one time thing, guess it goes on all year, so much the better. Sounds like even more fun. I just joined this group a few days ago and am having a hard time getting around the site, but will learn as I go along. I especially love Secret Santa exchanges and other swaps, blocks, fat quarters,etc. I will be watching all the things going on so I will be ready to go along next year. Thanks for letting me know.
Not sure if I can commit I have many fires going on right now but you can send a questionnaire to my message and a brief statement of what you need from me. My time is limited as I had two exhibits to do and a wedding quilt for my son.
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.
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"...lol
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?
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
Wow, I guess you were busy!
Small world is right my babies turned 41 a few months ago. Son is in CA and daughter is here with us.
Where was the JoAnn's located? I just can't picture it. My mom was probably in there often so I may well have been too.
May the next week bring you freedom.
Stow, Aurora, and Wycliffe. I am no spring chicken, Linda. I haven't lived in Solon for almost 40 years. And it is probably a dozen years since my parents did. In fact, I didn't recall a joAnn's there.
Hugs back atcha
Thank you, Linda, for your words of comfort. My grand daughter is still in hospital in Havana. She requires more surgery on her arm and may have to have it Friday. The Canadian government and the insurance co are working to get her air ambulanced to Toronto. We are all devastated at the loss of Cameron.
