I had the experience of looking for a pattern for a quilt that I knew nothing about except that I liked it. I only knew the name of the magazine it came out of but not when. I went to the magazine's website and "searched" for everything I could until I finally saw a picture of it with the directions. Run searches such as: blue and white quilts (or whatever colors), flying geese patterns, log cabin quilts, etc. Just get creative and you will surely find it.
I'm the same as the above ... have joined a group and we donate to charities but have to force myself out the door for meetings. I'm a happy hermit by nature and some chit-chat just confirms I'm happy being a hermit. We need human interaction but mine is a low level need. Ha
Wow! First he'd get sent to his room without dinner (leaving me time to quilt instead of cook) and he'd go to the Dr for a checkup ASAP. I'd also (like others mentioned) start carrying a pick-me-up snack in my purse.
I checked my issues of Quiltmaker and did not have that magazine. Hope someone will find theirs.
