Geneva, I really like those bags! Have a great time with your friends. My quilt guild has recently started a Dear Jane group, so Brenda's creation is alive and well. :)

Happy Birthday Sharon! I wish I could get on Medicare. :( Yesterday was my day to post, my half birthday, but I completely forgot!

I've already showed you the 6 bags of stash I am donating. That took awhile to sort through this past month. But I did get to do some sewing. I made 4 bags for my daughters and daughter in loves for Christmas! Yippee for getting them done early!

I used a pattern from Annies. It wasn't easy, but by the fourth one I had the hang of it.

Next week I will go to San Antonio Texas to retreat with with my friend Kathy Saunders at our friend Brenda Papadakis' home. I'm so excited! Kathy, Brenda and I worked together for Kaye England in Indiana in the late 1980's -early 90's. That's when Brenda found the Jane Stickle quilt and Dear Jane was born. I will be working on Christmas quilts for my four children's families. I'm making easy trees, in 3 sizes for lap size quilts. I bought 1 yard cuts of about 12 fabrics. We'll see how they turn out!

Hope all is well with you. geneva

Hi everyone. Today is my day to post and my actual birthday. I am now on Medicare, woohoo!

That lunch you ladies had looked like so much fun! Wish we could be there.

Just put away a quilt I am working on for #1 I am SICK of it and #2 I have drapery work for about 3 weeks. So that will give me time to change my attitude about it.

take care, Sharon in warm Colorado

Marilyn, we did our main bathroom a couple of years ago, so I know what you're going through. Just go with the flow (no pun intended). I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end. Love your woolies! The eggs and all the other projects!
Geneva, I haven't been sewing as long as you, but I have drawers and drawers of fabric that need to go! I know your donations will be put to good use.
What a lunch! Lots of love and laughter at that table, I'm sure. Hope you all got to do some shopping while there.

I'm late posting, but have been cranking out customer quilts, so will post later today.

Hugs to all,

Oh Marilyn - I love love love those eggs - beautiful!
so good that you're getting a new bathroom - yup lots of stress and chaos until it's in - but so so worth it. glad you were safe through all the messy weather conditions.

Geneva - a great purge - that's something that would do many of us good - i cleared out lots when i moved - but - for some reason i seem to accumulate quicker than i use or purge - hmmmmmmmm

wishing everyone a good, safe, happy, healthy and fun week/weekend.
keep smiling :)

And Liberty of London - when I saw it across the street I had no idea this was the shopping center where we were to meet and have lunch, laughs and oh so much to talk about!
We had a great great great day out!

Oh dear you two you know you're going to be looking for this stuff next week and buying it again. Actually I have started sorting my fabric with the intention of giving some away.

Marilyn your felted eggs are gorgeous, so pretty and scream Spring.

I've had an exciting time last week. Terrie and her husband Walter aka original lounge lizard have been over here on holiday. Lorchen (known to most of you) arranged a lunch at Liberties in London and Rosemary and I invited ourselves. We went down on Wednesday and when i went in the restaurant who was sat there?.......our Lotti!!! She'd flown over for the day for lunch from Switzerland.
What a day mug rugs chocolate, fabric and lots of laughs exchanged. Sure Rosemary and Lotti will post their pics but here's some of mine to make you smile :)

I will try to post within a week. Just got back from the Midwest and several weeks with my grandkids.
Good to see what you’ve been up to
Marilyn, I’m liking those eggs of yours (and non caloric !!!)
Geneva, I’m about to give up on ever sewing clothing again. If I just make that a ‘final decision’ I can delete a batch of patterns to the recycle bin (yep, they are that old!), probably a good rough tote or 2 full of ‘fashion fabric’, and I can only guess how many buttons, bows, and zippers, etc etc etc.
Passions of the Past can be very difficult to Purge, but,,,, I think that’s about where I’m headed. LOL

A new bathroom! Yippee! I think we forget how much time we spend in our bathrooms. ;) Good to hear from you Marilyn.

I've been going through my stash. I decided it was too much. I've been sewing for over 40 years and still had fabric from Junior High! I found that I couldn't find anything, and felt overwhelmed. It was scary but freeing to get rid of fabrics that I haven't used and will never use again. In the end I have 6 large trash bags to give to our guild's community service/silent auction. Now I can go to my stash and easily find what i want. I feel as if I've lost 50 pounds!

Spring is here and we are enjoying the nice weather. The lilacs have bloomed, the trees have leaves and I planted impatiens and zinnias.

Take care everyone! geneva
