"Oh, Barbara, I look at all the fabric I have and sayI NEED TO USE THIS UP BEFORE I BUY MORE, but than I decide I need another piece because I just NEED IT. I must say that this Covid has pretty much put a stop o some of this behavior. I…"
"Barbara, If you like documentries you might want to try The Windsors. It's pretty interesting, starts pretty much with The present Queen's grandfather up to the present day. The historical part of it is especially…"
"Riana, I knew you'd find it, your so organized, it had to be with the Lighthouse stuff. I would have been burrowing through totes and stacks. All neatly stacked and folded in those totes, and for me that's pretty good. I love…"
"Elizabeth, I'm so sorry that you could not have the surgery. I would think that you would have een told at the pre-surgeryappt. that you would have to stop the blood thinners seven days before surgery, it certainly seems like that would have…"
"Barbara, Your Stars are beautiful and your embrpidery touches are really pretty, makes it even more special.

"Zoe, I love the border fabric, looks like it was specially made for your quilt. What's the chance of finding something that matches so beautifully? Your friends are going to love that quilt, I know I would.
Elizabeth, I have always…"
"Zoe, working on those UFOs soundslike a good idea. I could do that for the next ten years and not run out of something to do. Haven't seen some of them in so long that they are like new again to me. "

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been quilting for about 20 years, I am retired from hotel management. I have a lot of time on my hands, due to some health problems I am not as active as I once was. I do belong to my local guild, local Project Linus group and block of the month at my local quilt shop. I have 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 14 great grands. They keep me pretty busy making quilts, etc. None of them live near us so I do miss that. I love to see what other quilters are doing and I also like to do some swaps, thats always fun.

Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?

What is your favorite quilting technique?

Gail, feel free to take part in all the discussions. Sometime in January I will be asking to see who wants to participate next year. Then I send out questionnaires. Secret Santa sisters will be assigned usually in April. Then you have all year to work on things for your SS box. We mail them out around the first Saturday in December.
This year we had a couple of contests. There are discussions all year trying to find answers to questions that maybe weren't on the questionnaires. We post tutorials for gift ideas. We have general discussions too.
So welcome to the group. Take part so we can get to know you for next year!
