"I am here in Santa Rosa, New Mexico! We had a 'stay put' day in Texas yesterday, and got more done on a second Star Spin pillow cover that I am making for a friend in New Zealand. Once we are settled in AZ I will start the Red Dragon…"
"Elizabeth and Riana - love those placemats! I make placemats when I'm experimenting with a quilting pattern, and I use them between dishes in the RV when travelling in addition on on my table. I have several sets and am thinking…"
"I do hope, on this beautiful Sunday morning, that you are all staying safe from the fires and other weather related disasters out there!
For those of you who have seen Ricky Tims videos - I have not, and never thought to look on youtube for…"

"Goodness, Zoe - what a busy, hard working day. No wonder you are exhausted. So glad you and your neighbors are all safe! Looking forward to hearing more about your new neighbor. You will have such a good time learning all…"

"Zoe, what weed control product are you trying? I need to find one for these flower beds after I get rid of the green things that were already there and have taken over everything. Good luck getting the bugs out of lawn!"
"Elizabeth, I know I prefer the jewel tones in both quilt fabrics and clothes, and I'd rather be coordinated than scrappy. I put a picture of my sweatshirt jacket on the PHD page. THAT is scrappy, all the fabrics came from my stash,…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Mother and grandmother, manager at Olive Garden, sewer, knitter, crocheter and quilter. Learning to free motion quilt now. Working on a Judy Neimeyer Mariner's Compass quilt (that I probably will not quilt myself) and a Bali Jewels quilt that I am going to quilt myself.
How many quilts have you made?
8? 9? 10? I've lost track.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I am making quilts, and I'm enjoying seeing pictures of other quilter's quilts.
