"Elizabeth, I'm with you, I haven't been able to get in or out of a tub to bathe for almost seventeen years it's been showers only for me. Taking a bath with some good smelling bath oil was one of my greatest pleasures, I sure do…"

"Kris, your Jewel Box is gorgeous. Some of my favorite quilts are ones I put togethr with scraps. The best thing about them is I can look at them and remember the quilts I made with all the different fabrics, kind of like a trip down…"
"Liz and Linda, I'm so sorry that you are both going through these bad times. I know that this COVID situation makes things even more distressful. I lost three family members a few years back and I can understand how you feel, at…"
"I am putting in time every day at the frame working on my daughters quilt, getting kind of tired of looking at it but it's coming along nicely. I have the top put together for the Honey Bee wallhanging and it has worked out good. I…"
"Chris, I think that the snow just added to the Christmas feel of your quilt. I expect the quilt will be happy to have some minky on its backside, I know that I would after having my picture taken in the snow."
"Linda, have you tried e-bay? I have occasionaly found some Thimbleberries fabric there. I looked thru what I have but none are suitable. Mine are either small pieces or more Autumn colors or Christmas fabric. I love the iron!"

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.
How many quilts have you made?
Lost count a long time ago
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
LOve making then and enjoy them both
How long have you been a quilter?

What is your favorite quilting technique?
I am a hand quilter, I enjoy traditional and historic best but have done some modern.
Why do you quilt?
Because I love to, it's my way of being creative and the people I give them to enjoy them and that gives me great satisfaction

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!
