Lucky you Ricky - you got to quilt! In Livermore CA I have been dealing with much greater matters! It seems that there is always a problem which keeps me from quilting -Hey TQS members what is your distraction that keeps you from quilting?




Today I got to quilt! I envy some of you who get to quilt more than I do. Others of you can relate to me - you get excited when the opportunity arises. I had a few phone calls that were necessary and i had to take the new dog, Mabel, out to do her business a couple of times, but all in all, I GOT TO QUILT TODAY! The extra good news is that I think it will be someting a LOT of folks will like. Here's a sneek peek. What do you think I have up my sleeve?

Let's hear it for SEW DAY! A few times a year i have the delicious opportunity to sew ALL DAY LONG with my buddies Marlene, Susan and Deb - Everyone arrives mid morning and then sews until late afternoon. All topics are open for discussion and a laugh or two is guaranteed. Deb and Marlene worked on applique' and Susan trimmed off snips and tails of threads from the back side of her latest quilt. As for myself - I worked on a CHALLENGING free form style qult - of which we all gave our ten cents worth regarding the layout and design (thank you!!!). The really cool thing about our group is that we met many years ago via the Internet - and would have probably not ever met otherwise. If you have a sew day, tell us about it!
