THANKS FOR THE IDERS I WILL GO AND GET LOTS OF STARCH
I went to an "open sew" yesterday with several of my guild friends...we had a wonderful day of quilting fellowship! I tried to explain to my husband why I would want to lug all my stuff to the library to sew with the ladies, when I could just go to the basement and sew. How do you explain the energy, creativity, inspiration and overall quilting fellowship that happens when we ladies get together for quilting... I saw some things going on there that I didn't even think possible. One
Well, I messed up the previous blog entry I guess, and I can't figure out how to edit it without making it worse... and, thinking I deleted it, by clicking the button that said that, I see it is still showing up with the TOO big pictures of little Ollie man.. SO, the next best thing to do is... try to repost the photos minus the commentaries because I am frustrated at this new blog setup.. Ok, so I said it, I LOVED the old QB, and so do not like this new one.. its why I don't come back all that
For the first time ever, my hubby and I went to Hayward, WI this a.m. to see the finish of the American Birkebeiner. This is a cross country ski race of 50 kilometers. This was the 39th annual! It was very interesting. We got there about 45 mins. before the first finishers crossed the finish line, stayed about 2 hours, then got hungry and a little cold.
I don't usually like crowds, but this was not too bad, very friendly crowd and apparently enough spaces up and down main street

This time I will include some pictures as most of us are visual people. It can't just be me who knows how to make these simple and accurate flying geese. I read instructions for cutting off corners, or working
Just had to share this before I go make churn dash blocks.

Wow...last year I quilted 20 quilts...I was a bit burnt out...so I have been spending my time cleaning out my exercise room and made it into a sewing room, painted, put up shelves, decorated it (Love it!), bought a treadle and tore it apart and with a friend of mine cleaned it all up and put it back together...it looks perfect in my new sewing room. I converted my rolltop desk into a stow away for my Accuiquilt dies and my Janome 7700 while its not in use. I went shopping yesterday at a consignment
