Pam - Glad to see a fellow quilter in Oak Island. Wish I had found you while I was there last month. My husband and I own a home there and are retiring next year and moving there permanently. Look forward to meeting you one day.
Hello again Pam, I don't think the streeter's there are any relation. When we lived there we went to the Presbyterian Church. But, when we were there it was very small, not the church that it is now. Also, when we were there there was only 1 bridge onto the island.
We first had a house on 21st street in Long Beach and then bought a house in Yaupon after the Dianna Hurricane came through and took our roof. Our daughter was born in Wilmington. So many memories. I have been quilting for a long time and LOVE it. It has allowed me to be a stay home mom but still help with the family budget.
Please friend me on face book or look for my, "Penny's Patches" face book page and you could also check out my home page, Http://www.pennyspatches.com
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just need help.
Hello Pam, My husband and I once lived on Oak Island. We lived in Long Beach then bought a house in Yaupon Beach. My husband was in the Coast Guard and stationed there. I loved it! but we moved to PA so our children could get to know their grandparents. It's our hope that we will get to move back to the area some day.
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. (Good choice for Christmas gifts, or yourself, because the ebooks are on sale now!)
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
