Since our quilting community worries when someone seems to 'disappear' from the board, I thought I would explain my planned future absence. I am blessed with a large family that loves my quilts. (What more could a quilter ask for?????), Anyway, I started counting who had one, and who didn't. Seems I left out a chunk of one generation....the great grandies, so am going to take the time to make something for seven boys and three girls. It also seems a couple of great great grandies managed to sneak in when I wasn't looking, and another is on the way. Since I'm not getting any younger, I decided to get busy! I also have to admit that I am eyeing the round robins, and thought seriously of speaking to Patrice about starting a four month wall hanging round robin....but that, if it happens, is in the future. I'll be lurking, of course. Have fun!

Gracious! Has there been a major catastrophe that I haven't heard about??? Is there anyone left alive out there? Even though I chose to sit out a swap or two I still love to see what is being worked on...and hear how everyone is doing...for instance, has anyone heard from Rhonda??? Has she had her lung transplant? If not, how close is she to her weight goal? Hey ladies, she is our Hostess! Meanwhile, I asked great grandies for favorite colors, and thought I was doing fine...made the first flimsie (red was his choice) only to find out that he really wanted Louisville Cardinal Red....so back to the drawing board. The first pic is the one I made before I knew about the Cardinals. The second is the one he will receive. Meanwhile, what are you working on????

Still alive here, Granky! Your projects turned out great and will be loved, I’m sure... sounds like you are chipping away at your list of family.

I have not started my WH project but I did pull the fabric and will make it in May. I am planning trips right now and making things to bring with me for our mothers. My mother is moving in with my sister and is in the process of selling contents of her 3-story house. I had my sister mail me all of her Amish cross-stitch pictures and I am designing a custom quilt for her. I wanted to combine her cross-stitch with some applique blocks so it’s taking time. I designed quilt on EQ8 and I am so pleased with results so far. Also, I’m making some placemats for my MIL....plus gardening....so busy busy..

Rhonda would bop in, typically, at check in with us so I’m praying all is well with her and Hubbie..

Hi Granky from Western Australia. I haven't started my wall hanging yet . still thinking what to do. I have though just finished a small one for a friend who has a sick American friend and they have a dairy she wanted to cheer her up so asked me to do one for her showing Australia and a dairy farm . Hopefully I can remember to post a photo

Thanks Granky for the shout out!! I'm still kicking. I am on O2 and have been on quarantine for 13 months, We don't get out much. Hubby has been to dr appts as he is still dealing with cancer. He is doing well tho. I did several months of Cardiac Pulmonary rehab and "graduated" the end of March LOL they two ladies (RNs) had me put on a gown and cap and I looked so silly LOL I lost almost 30 but still have 70 to go before the transplant team will consider me for a lung transplant. I need to reschedule my Pulmonary Function Test to see how much breathing ability I still have. The last test it was 26%. I keep busy with several groups online and some are quilty. I miss my grandkids soooo much. But life goes on. We do takeout and eat in the car. One restaurant is our favorite and they do a great job of distancing so I feel ok going in there. but I don't go in anywhere else. I am getting tired of being quarantined tho. I won't take the shot or go in stores until my Pulmonary dr says I can. I'm trying to get my mojo back and get back into quilting. I have a round robin that I need to work on. And I have been trying to talk myself into making some bookmarks as prizes for one of my F online quilt groups. I do a bingo game there and send out prizes.
