Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hello, everyone. I remember reading the last On Point thinking "I wish they would do a social network." My wish came true!
I live in Bradenton, FL, on the west coast just a bit below Tampa. I love it here! I've been quilting since the 70's, but I here lately I've been focusing on Crazy Quilts. I love all the hand work and the freedom of expression. Never a dull moment with a CQ! I've started a CQ group, just today. I just joined today, so there's not much there yet, but it will be blossoming soon.
I love Anna Maria, especially the pier area. The best time of year to visit Florida is now. Today we had a high in the 70's with a light breeze. This is the time of year I like to sit outside and sew.
I have never been to Kansas City. I grew up in Illinois, though, so I know what winter is. Have fun at your meeting, Jill.
Thanks for sharing. It's so wonderful to have you here, and already adding so much. Keep up the great work Linda!
Hopefully, you can make some new connections, such as Jill, who share your love of quilting!
I too am a Florida a girl :-) I am a little north of you, in the Tampa Bay area.
Yes I do go to Cotton Patch. They have moved further away from me, though, so I don't get there as often. But, they are closer to my work. I was going to try to "power shop" there on my lunch, but haven't done it yet. I'm afraid that I'll be unable to leave soon enough to get back to work on time and say, "oh what the heck" and stay all afternoon to shop, lol. I'm sure my boss would love that!
Hi from the east coast of Florida. Used to live in Sarasota. I haven't made a crazy quilt yet but it's on my list.
I am looking for a new sewing machine. Any tips on what features you can't live without?
