Thank you Karen for liking my pinwheel quilt, I think I will leave the buttons off, if I knew that they would only use as a wall hanging then it would be fine, but I do not want to take the chance with whoever buys the quilt

Hi Karen, Just took a look at your photos and enjoyed them all. Bags, doll clothes and quilts, all so nice. It's nice to see little ones learning to sew.

I love your work. Your granddaughter looked like she enjoyed herself making her gingerbread doll. Turned out very cute.

started reading about quilts in native american culture while eating a sandwich :)). and now still rambling around on the net serendipitously following interesting links in all things culturaly historical quilty.

:)) ...gues i should get back to being semi productive. guess my labors out in the freezing cold bundling up my orphan kittens and getting them inside safe in their kennel sorta set me back a bit on kicking this cold thing. oh well. the ice storm didn't develope and neither did the winds and rain or snow. and the kittens are warm and safe whatever happens outside now. next step, try and get them adopted. cross your fingers, toe nails ..whatever i can do this thing. they aren sooooo beautiful. ...and SWEET!! omg! i wish i didn't have to part w them. but i already have four cats, all rescues. :(( i love animals of all kinds and it would be so easy to be that crazy women w fifty dogs, a hundred cats, rescued parrots, horses ---everything but stray humans .. :))

and the photo of your mom & your grandson is so beautiful. so special. so glad you shared it. my son told me my eldest grdaughter has chosen knitting as a craft subject in her school - kindergarten. my fingers have been itching to teach her some form of needlework. she has expressed interest in my quilts i make for them and the embroidery on one i made for my son years ago. her mother dabbles in knitting. i am an experienced knitter. shame the child has to learn in school instead of at home from mother or grmother. but then ddil is another story. so...i will be putting together a knitting "tool/supply" for my little love.
the sewing on fuzzy bags was halted last weekend by moi. long story. so, working on my rr instead of handmade gifts for my two grandchildren. oh well...they are cery young and there will ne years that gramma ham goes shopping instead of sewing :))

back to my projects...was checking bookmarked links for something and came across the above. thought of you...enjoy

Hi, Karen!!  My husband grew up in Carroll, Iowa.  We now live in Winter Haven, Florida full-time.

 

Let me know when you get down to Florida, maybe we can get together.... I know of some very cool quilt shops, and am always up for exploring!!!!  I've gone from Tampa to Orlando, mostly, but I know there is a shop on the Space Coast (by Melbourne) that I have yet to check out, and Quilting by the Bay, up in the panhandle....Key West doesn't have a good quilt shop, but they do have a Ben Franklin's, and that would be interesting....I see Key West as an opportunity for someone to open a quilt shop, especially if they had machines to rent, and kits!!!  Hugs!!

Hi Karen,

I googled Dolan's Fabric Shop in Renfrew Ontario Canada and got the site but there is no web address, just a phone number and local information.

You'll see in the photo of the shop that it is just an old fashioned store on the main street of an old fashioned town.  But it's a hidden gem.

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your kind comments on my quilts.  It felt great to get those finished.  I really love your quilt.  There is a quilt shop north of Ottawa that specializes in quilt panels and large cheater quilts too.  I just bought 2 a week ago.  My non-quilter friends are frequently asking me for baby quilts and I make lots, mostly for donations, but I'll sell them one  if they want ($20 to 50., the "family price")  LOL  But they have their own ideas about what a baby quilt should look like - so these panels are perfect!

The shop has lots of "manly" panels too because  this is a cottage, trailer park and hunting area".

Thanks, Karen. At home l needed a design wall because Snowball loves to run & slide on blocks when l tried to organize them on the floor.On the other hand, Sheba, who's close to 20 lbs. is my alternate "presser":)
