    It's been awhile since I have seen some of the members online sending in such interesting threads and photos.....

    If you do come online and happen to see this thread, how about a hello from you and a few words about what you have been doing to keep busy.

    If anyone knows of a member who hasn't been here lately, maybe we could send them a PM and ask them to post to this thread and let us all know that they are still at the machine stitching away the time.

    Miss seeing a lot of you, hurry back..........MJ

    Im here most days but depending on my schedule I may go MIA for a few. Summer is here so I've moved to bag/tote/purse making. Thats my usual plan, hot weather=tote making, cooler weather=quilt making. Its a schedule that suits me these days.

    I retired for a year, not use to staying home so much. I made a lot of quilts and I still work on quilts. Just finished 2 baby quilts and working on another. I have more of them planned.

    Hello! I have been off the computer for so long, that I am no longer a regular. :shock:
    I have been sewing up a storm, a paper piecing project, a challenge fabric table topper, taking a class to make a sunflower wall hanging, and some where inbetween, I made a Hawaiian dress for Rilee's pre-school / Hawaiian graduation party. :roll:

    Hey MJ, How have you been? Good to see you back on the MB.

    I've been quilting on and off, trying to get organized as my sister who is a newbie quilter will be over this weekend for a mini retreat at my house. We plan to take a ride to Lancaster on Saturday as I want to introduce her to all the fabric shops there. May in Jersey

    well, I have been here but not posting as much......but trying to keep up with the different members.

    That's why I thought it would be good to have each of us tell the others what has been going on in our corners of the world.

    Still waiting to hear from some others..........

    Well I have been working on painting a set of saddle bags for a Harley Davidson (multilayer Ghost Flames), doing all of the bodywork on a Buick and a plethora of sewing machines right now. Maybe in a few weeks I will slow down a bit but for now its hustle hustle hustle!!
