"Linda - next fall we will get together. I have had one shot and will get the second in March right before we head back to Ohio. By the time we get back in October you will have had your shots and we can meet up somewhere!"
"Riana - I love the dress, the bag, the quote and the kitty cats! I live inside a good book so I'm never short of adventures. I'm glad your granddaughter is on the way to good adventures of her own.
Poor doggies and kitty…"
"The Jewel Box quilt top is mostly done. It's almost queen size. When we get back to Ohio I'll add some light blue borders to make it truly queen size. It's all made from scraps, even the three different blue fabrics,…"
"Elizabeth - hang in there. I feel for you and wish I lived close enough to come hug you, but the thought will have to do.
Riana - I really like the orange exotic quilt, because I like the center motif! Good work on all of them."
"Riana - same thing here. Grandkids are learning to make quilts, neither daughter does any kind of handwork though I tried to teach them knitting, crochet, sewing and quilting, and embroidery.
Waiting until the Arizona grandkids…"
"Zoe - the post office says my blocks should reach you on Saturday, but that doesn't factor in the bad weather currently happening between here and there.
Barbara - I can see 9 patches and houses going together. Can't wait to see what…"
"My blocks for Zoe are done, and going to the post office this afternoon. They do not have hearts because I have no bonding fabric with me, so I'm including some pieces of the fabric for you to make the hearts if you want them, Zoe. …"
"Goodness, Riana!!! No wonder you'd rather spend the winters in Florida! Congrats - or condolences? - to hubby for his selfless work on stopping the water. Hope the wimpy well holds out for you till this arctic blast is…"
"Zoe - so we are making Jenny Sloan's House block in any color for the quilt you are making for this young man? The block is 14 X 14 finished. We are making that size, right? Want to make sure I have it right before I get…"
"Oh Wilma - what a thing to happen on top of everything else. Hope you all heal quickly. I'm sure having had one shot already did help with the milder case.
Riana - Layla is doing a great job on her new quilt! Sewing with…"
"Deanna - what a cool idea to use the same fat quarter and a different background for the sisters. I really like the blue one.
Riana - snow has to be different for you since you are used to being in Florida this time of year, lol."
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Mother and grandmother, retired from 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?
I've lost track. Somewhere around 20 to 30 I think. And lots of other quilted things.
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.
