I have 3 people that we email each other often and one that I talk to every day on IM. Mostly just through the posting but even then it seem like I know them. All of you are like having best freinds even if we never actualy met.

I feel the same way. I'm at home alone most of the time (hubby works and children are grown ). If I didn't have my quilting buddies here I'd probably go insane with boredom.

Thats me too Debbie...my husband is semi-retired.... has a PT job in town just to help with groceries and keep busy (and out of my hair!) LOL So I am here alone all day, and loving it, I might add....have all the time in the world for my quilting!

I have one granddaughter who comes to stay with me on occasion.. she is 6 and I am trying to get her interested in sewing/quilting.... its been fun!

I have one IM friend from another quilting board....and a few that PM back and forth on occasion.

I've never attended any guilds or retreats so haven't had a chance to meet any other quilters face to face ...yet! Plans to someday!!!

There's a quilt show coming to my town (Wilmington, NC) in June. Some of the girls here plan on attending. We're going to spend the day together and really getting to know each other. It's going to be so much fun.

I too am alone most of the day well not actualy I take care of my Dad hes 84 doesn't walk or talk any more. So I don't get a chance to get out much can't leave him alone for more then an hour so I do every thing when he takes his nap. So this is my main connection to the outside world. My daughter call a few times a day but usualy needs or wants something when she dose. What I would give gor a day for myself and to be able to sleep for more then 2 hours at a time. I guess thats the price you pay when you have an 84 year old baby. Actualy I am very glad I still have my Dad with me . but there are those days lol

Just want to say thanks all of you for being here

Good Morning everyone! How is it going? I helped work on the church quilt last night. the blocks are all done but now we are trying to get everything to fit around the center panel and still look symetrical. Its tough. i just want to jump in and say sew something! If its wrong we"ll do it over, but when you are in a group, you can't do that unless you plan on working by yourself after that. The center panel is an applique of the church--about 36 by 42 (Ithink) and the blocks are different sizes--corner blocks are bigger but all have sashing around them. The outside border has our motto "Growing in Faith Together" The sides ahave all the ministries and the date the church was founded (1982) We also have all 4 pastor's names on it.All the lettering was done with the machine. If we can work out the sizing of it and how to make everything fit, it will be beautiful!!!! WE ddin't get as much done last night as I hoped we would--too much discussion and not enough sewing, but I can't just barge in and stomp on them--gotta play nice :lol: We meet again Wed April 18th and by golly we are going to sew!
But---I have to say that working with these ladies and seeing what kind of work they turn out has left me in awe. So much talent in this tiny group (we are down to just 6 people) If we don"t get done soon everyone will have dropped out :!: Nex time we meet, I'll bring the camera and take snapshots and post them.
We are going to the mtns for Easter and the whole next week and I am bring both the pansy quilt and the Aunt Hatties garden quilt to work on. If I get to the library I'll post something just to say hi. Have to start packing this weekend--linens and such because I have to work all next week and we are leaving next Thursday night! Yeah :!: :!: :!: Mountains here I come!

My hats off to you. Caring for parents is a very hard job. Not just on the body but the mind as well. The last year before my mom passed away my 2 sisters and I took care of her in her home. We all had jobs that allowed us to do shift work so we could be with her 24/7. She's been gone for 6 years now and I never regretted the time I spent with her, even tho it took me away from my husband and children I'm glad I was able to be there for her.

Hi all I too have spent many years at home alone and it is so nice to be able to read all your thoughts. And a super bonus to have so many talented people to get help from!!

We have a great street here in the woods and every one is like family but of course they are younger and all work and are busy most nights, but we do have a Toco Nite every once in a while! Great fun, then we play games after.

Really enjoyed the "remember when" postings & I am amazed at the beautiful quilts you all do. The one from Gojo ??, is super!! especially for a first quilt !!

Patrice, THANK YOU so much for all your great knowledge and willingness to share it with all of us!!

Am a little late with with BOM but hurt knee real bad and am just today going to try to use pedal for sewing mach. again. ( what I would really like is a little funnel that goes into a little flip top hole in each knee, so I can squirt some 3-in-0ne oil in or something. Keep them lubricated ) !! LOL

Well, take care all.

(name is Betty but knew there would be more that one so Imak is so I can keep track of myself!---short for imaklutz.)
