My grandson Zachary is 10 and he is autistic. This means his brain is wired differantly than ours. His developement mentally is in some ways higher than his age and in other ways about a year and a half to 2 yrs behind. He has a high IQ and is really good at problem solving to get what he wants. His impulse control is a problem from time to time however. this last weekend he found a pair of scissors(old sewing scissors I collect) and he chopped off about 3" right in the center of his bangs

Just a composition book in which I wrote when I completed blocks and anecdotes about the family. So precious to reread things from 4 years ago.
I am starting a quilt called Island Splendor by Dereck Lockwood and have posted a couple of blocks so you can see my color choices. I am an appliquer and dont do many pieced quilts so this will be an interesting quilt for me. I will post as I continue on this quilt journey. Donna

For those that are having difficultly posting pictures, it's helpful to reset your settings to "enhanced interface". This then sets up a different format for your reply. The reply section then has a menu above the area to post with bars, (font, size, smilies, and images), that can be used. I found this easy to use after changing my settings. Here are directions to do the change which is taken from another post.

QUOTE=harryb1834;2671744]I just want to say thanks for the responses and want to give you a little update. I am going forward with the quilting book website. It is definitely a lot of work. I have only input about a hundred titles so far and I would guess we have about 900 to 1000 more to go. I named the site
Hey everybody! This was quilt Guild day. Spent a good share of the a.m. figuring out everything I had to take and getting it into the car, then did errands over lunchtime, and Guild started at 2 pm. I didn't get home until 9 pm!
But it was a good day. This was a sewing session. It went from 2 pm to 8 pm, so that out daytime and evening members all had the chance to come for part of the time. We were sewing flannel adult bibs for the local nursing home and assisted living center.

The signups are open now and will close December 30th. The deadline to have them here is january 15th. I will mail them out by the 30th of january back to the group swappers. (Or before if possible) That will give us time to put a piece together before valentines day to display or give if we get a wiggle on. LOL!
The swap is open to all levels of quilters. Please do use 100 percent
