No worries about the feedback, Libster. Actually, I sent a message to the admins a few days ago, asking about it, and they removed the accidental negative, so it's been fixed.

Thank you, Lord! That is the best news I've had in for ever!


Edited to say: Certainly not meaning the news concerning your DH's job situation. I hope things work out for the best for you both, be it continued employment where he currently is or new employment elsewhere.
I hope you sell out at your craft fairs!

Moonrise totally understand the fear of the lay off for hubby. Still coming to grips with hubby’s job ending in May and he has been there 36 years, his entire work career after college. Like you we planned ahead but it is still quite a shock. Hope you do well at the craft fairs

Moonrise, it's terrible to have to worry about impending layoff. Maybe he can find something else and leave before that happens?

Hope you have a good craft fair season. Hope the crowds are buyers and not just gawkers.

Hope everyone is doing well! I got back from vacation and got the bug to get some of my embroidery blocks put together into tops - they've been sitting around for long enough! Started thinking about the BH mystery and decided I really needed to finish up my crazy quilt blocks as I keep "saving" my neutrals for that project. So if I get it done, then all those neutrals can be freed up for the mystery.

But that all means my lovely set of swap blocks is sitting aside for now. They are going to make a very nice quilt!

Hello all! It has been a long while since i popped in, but I just got the itch today! Had a few changes in my life.. lost my job on a Monday morning almost 2 years ago, that night an old ex boss called out of the blue and asked if I was interested in a job in Hawaii...That was a big fat yes! Did the whirlwind of interviews, back n forth to Hawaii, got the job, had to sell the house, kicked the kids out, sold or gave or tossed away 25 years of junk and stuff, shipped the important stuff to Hawaii (fabric stash comprised most of it!) Downsized from 1500 sq feet to a studio that is literally 11 x 15, plus a bathroom. At age 63. Because Hawaii had been a pipe dream of mine, I already had all the waiting period/quarantine and testing and certificates done for my dog.. So my dog and I moved to Oahu. haven't sewed since i got here. Hard to find the space in here. But it has become a priority. I need to be creative again.And winter months the snorkeling isn't as good. So i need a hobby to pass the time.
Errr.. sorry for the long post.....
I am excited to see all the boomerang blocks here! So glad this is still going! You all do such lovely work. I shall lurk about and if I get my sewing area set up, I may join the next one!

wow, what an interesting post, Bluelady!
I know what you faced going from a studio to 11 x 15'.
I am selling mine and my sewing space is half of a 7.5 x 9.5 space.
Well, I guess I'm almost taking up 3/4 but there is a doorway and
two windows in here so, you know, it affects how you place things.
I do have almost half of a bigger bedroom for my fabrics and notions
so I probably have fared better than you in the sewing dept.
You've had to make room for a bed and some chairs and a table and
your clothes etc.
How fortunate that your old boss called! wow! talk about serendipity!!!
I hope we both get to sew soon.
(I lurk on this post and some others, btw )

Hi ladies. Just an update I am almost finished with the blue boom quilt. It's taking me a while to quilt I on my domestic sewing machine. You can only quilt so much when the quilt is 110x110. I will have it done by this weekend and mailed off to its new home for Christmas. As soon as I am done I will post a picture. Thanks everyone for your hard work and talent for making this quilt special. Happy holidays to everyone.

I got my quilt done. It is on the way to its new home for Christmas. I couldn't get all of the quilt in the picture but I got most of it. It measures 106" square after quilting and washing. Thanks again to everyone for their help in making blocks for this quilt.

Great finish and love how you set the blocks (pun intended)
