    Thank you. It was indeed a nice break. Wouldn't it be a nice custom to revive? (Assuming the young women wouldn't object LOL)

    Ok yes I took the break and remember again all the quilts that have been in nearly every episode. Mary Ellen's quilt was done with some of my favorite colors. The soft peach and melon tones and the Dresden patterns! Need to add that one to my bucket list! Thanks for the link!

    My story has nothing to do with quilting but does have to do with the Waltons. I use to watch the show all the time when I was a kid. (Still do sometimes) Back in the 70's while watching the show I asked my Mom why Grandma always called Grandpa an "Old Fool". I was raised to never call anyone a fool. She didn't know but told me if I wanted to write Grandma and ask, I could. So I wrote. A while later I received a reply. I got a hand written letter from Grandma explaining even though it isn't right to call someone a fool, when she does it, it's meant as a "term of endearment". She also sent a signed black and white picture of her and Grandpa made out to me. Will also signed it.
    I have that picture framed with the letter and the envelope behind the picture all in her handwriting. One of the coolest things I have ever gotten. :O)

    Ooh! John Boy without a shirt! (I always had a crush on him.)

    This was a nice show. Also interesting to see old style socializing- notice the lack of cupcakes, cookies and cokes which would probably be considered vital for any such event these days? Notice how slim they all are?!! (Except for naughty Grandpa who was obviously a little partial to the liquid refreshments!)

    Yea it would be nice to start a tradition like this in our own family or community. I think the hardest part is gathering folks who would be interested and then finding the time in this busy world. However, this tradition is never forgotten.

    yup we all be slim if we worked has hard as they did in those days. I recently found this out when my washer broke down and was waiting for repair man. So had to wash some cloths in a bucket and ran it through some ringers i bought years ago. Whew those women had strong backs arms and hands. lol Its good to watch old time shows like that is to see how they had to do things years ago. One never knows if we would ever have to, knowledge is powerful.
