Hi Debi - Yes you are right. My picture was taken at the Grand Canyon a few years ago on a vacation I took with my DH. It was simply breathtaking! We do have mountainous views in Upstate NY where I live. Now in the City there are just a whole lotta skyscrappers! I work in the Chrysler Building one of the many landmarks in NYC.
I am really enjoying this website as well as craftsy.com. I only joined last month and I am hooked! I am on both everyday...lol. I work full time and have 2 children, Justin 14 years old and Samantha 9 years old. I have 2 businesses on the side that I hope one day will take off. So I have a pretty hectic life which is just perfect for NYC. My getaway is going home to the suburbs where nature sings and there is no hustle and bustle. I love quilting and I am into paper crafts also. Glad to be sharing my passions with people who have the same interest. Don't really find much of that where I live. I hope to start May blocks soon as my daughters First Holy Communion is this Saturday! Have a great day! Can't wait to see your blocks.
Thank you, Debi. My Block Buffet looks exactly the same, except I have my portable design wall back & it's hanging on it now. I'll try to finish it when I get back from the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA. I've missed you; you've been sick? I'm glad you're feeling better. Will you finish your Block Buffet and enter the contest? I sure hope so!
Debi- take a close look if you can at the Welsh quilt I posted in the Gallery a few days ago. I explain there that the quilting is done from the back(which in this case is a solid) with no reference to the top. I think it somehow looks fine on the front. Maybe you could quilt from your favorite side and then the reverse would be very interesting. Though that would be a lot of seams to quilt through.
Happy birthday, Debi~I hope you have a wonderful day!
I joined this site at the end of April and I'm really enjoying it now that I found my way around. Once I joined some of the groups I started meeting people; everyone has been so friendly and helpful! There are no guilds, quilting groups or classes in my area, so I was thrilled to have found this site. I hope you'll enjoy it here as much as I do!
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
