Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I never heard she has been ill. so sorry to hear that. and Liz moved closer to her grandkids.
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.

I liked the show better when it was Fons and Porter. Not real crazy about Mary and it has nothing to do with her appearance. I find that a lot of people these days look as though they haven't combed their hair nor matched their clothes. So if they are clean I just try and overlook it.
A merry heart doth good like a medicine.
Wisdom is too high for a fool.
This is an interesting thread. I agree that the show is not nearly as good without Liz. Liz and Marianne had a good chemistry and I always liked their projects. Mary irritates me with the faces, wisecracks etc. I always think she doesn't know what she's doing.
I quite frankly think the magazine is not nearly as good either. I am thinking I won't renew it because the projects are not as appealing to me. I recently thumbed through a stack of their old issues (late 90's and early 2000). Now I know why I saved them. I liked almost everything in each issue.
I have always been an Eleanor Burns fan. She is an excellent teacher and I love the way she brings historical aspects of quilting into her show. I meet her last year at Sew Expo in WA state. She was just like one of us girls and was so friendly and encouraging. Nancy Zieman is also a gracious, class act lady and an excellent teacher. Meet her at Expo a few years ago and was majorly impressed with her. I love the way she teaches lots of aspects of sewing, quilting and so on. I have enjoyed reading how both of these women took their love of sewing and built a business which has prospered. They are both great role models.
I even catch old shows of Georgia Bonesteel. maybe on Create t.v. not sure. I like watching them all. now we will put this to rest. Hugs to Mary ((())) she needs them. more (())
