    Anael--yes I am ok. Life just got pretty busy for me for a couple years so I wasn't on the quilting board much. Kids are all graduated from homeschooling, caring for my 81yr old mother-in-law now as needed. I am working on slowing down again...which means more quilting Lord willing!!

    Slowing down isn't easy! Take care of yourself!!

    I'm leaving on Friday and will be back May 10th. Behave ladies

    OK, I didn't make more hills and I might decide to do something else. I saw a finished top and that one has some great features. I asked the lady if I could improve my world using hers She said I could! So I started ripping some blocks I didn't like and seeing hers I now know why I didn't like mine. Same with the hills. She has appliqued trees and I like that much better!

    That's what we love about quilting...able to make our own choices and tweak our designs. Have a great trip wherever you are off too, Anael.

    This is one of the reasons why I haven't started a JK quilt! Check posts #991 and #992 on this page. I have been sewing for families in Nebraska after blizzards and floods earlier.

    You have been very busy OK! Love the quilts you made.

    Judith, it's on Facebook. She posted her MSW on April 30st.

    The weather won't be nice on my holiday. Cold and rainy.........hopefully I will be able to go out on my bike and take lots of pictures!
    Thanks for all the good wishes ladies!
    OK, I'm off to Zeeland, in the South West of my country.

    Oh wow, I just saw a Long Time Gone in yellow, orange, green and pink. Background and sashings white (or white on white). It's a beauty!! Something to consider when you want to make one

    FYI, it's cold and rainy here in my corner of the world, too. So we just deal with it!

    I really like the new ones. Once I saw the other top I knew what was bothering me with mine!

    Thank you QuiltnNan!

    As you can see I'm back I had a great time despite the weather. It was quite rainy but I managed to go out on my bike every day. Some of the pictures I took:

    This is Zeeland. It's a flat part of our country except for the dunes of course

    Here I'm standing on a dune, 50 meters high.
    I climbed those dunes so often I strained both my hips, left worse than right so I had to quit climbing dunes for a few days Still I was able to go to the beach as in one area you can bike on the sea side of the dunes!

    Great pictures, as always. That's a pretty steep climb. I know how the hips feel when taking my small hills around here. Glad you had a good time!

    Hey I bought a GW pattern last week. The first one I've seen in a LQS around here and it was on sale as the shop is closing...I paid $1 for it. Would have loved a SW, too. This is officially on my thinking list, but not starting it yet.

    Thanks OK!!
    My hips were so sore, I had a hard time sitting and sleeping. For a day or so I was afraid something was wrong with my hip replacement on the left side but it just needed some rest. Lucky me!

    You did? Finally a GW? Congrats! When will you start? Don't overthink, just jump in. You can hardly go wrong with a GW.
