Quilt Show and Concert with Dave Anderson and Roger Walck

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 9:21pm 4 Comments

Saturday, October 26, 2013

The afternoon was very pleasant and a surprise because Dave and Roger came to my home and spent the afternoon with me. I can't remember the last time I've had such a relaxing afternoon. They loved Indy and I think Indy loved them because he didn't growl and bark at them. Dave asked to lay down for half an hour. So Roger asked to see my gardens and Indy needed out anyway. We walked around for a while and Roger liked my Secret Garden. We then went back into…

Sneak Peak to my Remodeled Sewing Room

Posted on March 17, 2013 at 7:38pm 16 Comments

The moment is almost here when I can finally move back into my sewing room.  Right now I can move in the Elna, but I'm trying to figure out a way to bring in the Pfaff too. I have a friend who comes over and sews strips and/or squares for me. I.m trying to figure out if the small table will fit and still give me enough room to move around without being too constricted. . Let me explain some of the changes. I've had new windows put in. They've already been tested thanks to Mother Nature; and…

You absolutely have not done anything wrong, Linda! My son has been very sick and I have not had time to get on here. Hopefully I can do better now. Hugs,

Linda can you please send me a copy of my secret Santa so I can finish her box. I lost the her letter when I was so sick. Thank you.

Thanks so much for the info.  I am already excited about next years exchange.  I have joined another exchange wile waiting.  Instant gratification for me in 9" block exchange. I will have my Santa Suit all ready to go in 2018!  Can't wait.

Thanks, Linda.  I just assumed it was a one time thing, guess it goes on all year, so much the better.  Sounds like even more fun.  I just joined this group a few days ago and am having a hard time getting around the site, but will learn as I go along.  I especially love Secret Santa exchanges and other swaps, blocks, fat quarters,etc.  I will be watching all the things going on so I will be ready to go along next year.  Thanks for  letting me know.

Not sure if I can commit I have many fires going on right now but you can send a questionnaire to my message and a brief statement of what you need from me. My time is limited as I had two exhibits to do and a wedding quilt for my son.

Thanks Linda, I'll look forward to next year and keep an eye on all the goings on this year

Yes, you definitely deserved to have a good time! I feel the same after attending a good quilt show. So inspired and intimidated! I have a lot to learn and in so many ways, I, too, feel like a novice, even after all these years of quiltmaking. 

At 9:37am on September 20, 2016, Ginny Andersen said…

So many amazing quilts! I couldn't pick a favorite! I would imagine you were on overload in the quilt inspiration category, weren't you?! What a wonderful day!

Thanks Linda! Please keep me in mind for next year!
