    Just go into that closet, tub, or what ever your fabric is in and refold it. This should revived that same high as you get to run your hands over your delicious finds. It works for me.. in fact I have been doing this these last few days.. as I try and sort my fabrics, putting them into groups by color, type, or project..

    Where is your family in N MI? My Aiti's (that's what my mom called her so I did, too; was 12 before I realized I was calling my grandma mother) family settled in Michigami; she went on with grandpa do NE MN.
    My family is in the Boyne City area.

    Quilting is a great hobby. It fills all the niches that hobbies must to qualify as a hobby. It takes tons of time, it takes your money, lets your creativity flow, and gives great pleasure.

    Yes, I have found that out. The Quiltingboard has been a great help for me to discover that quilters are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. While at the retreat, there was another groups of ladies, and as they came to look at what we were working, commented on how nice it was to see a male quilter.

    We need to do another shop-hop (when the snow isn't flying)

    No, this retreat is for the other guild I belong to, Town Hall in Clarckston, MI.

    I'm in the process of making another with a green background for my brother. I'm hoping that I get it done for christmas. Even though he paid for the fabric, I want to surprise him. And I'll post a picture when completed.

    You made that gorgeous Dresden Plate quilt. Did you made another one? You mentioned that you might. You should post a picture of that here for us to drool over. Oops - no drool or slobber. Only "ooooo's" and "ahhhhh's".
