Oh Lorchen, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. I'd wondered what had happened since I missed you on the forum. You and your family are in my prayers. It's been 15 years since we lost dad. Now, I hold on to the many wonderful memories I have of him and family times!

Now about TQS-I honestly don't know how I missed this forum back in Feb. I love TQS and spend time here almost daily. Sometime my DD has the computer tied up with college! The only thing I wish is that I had more time so that I could enjoy every aspect of TQS. I hit the daily blog, forum and Ricky and Alex's videos daily. I am bound and determined to get the BOM completed! I try to read through some of the member blogs on week-ends. It is hard to get to everything here, but I truly enjoy what I get to see/read!

I just love TQS and could not imagine life without it and all of you!

WandaM
Happy Quilting,

Shiner TX

JudyMc,
I agree with you more than 100%!! I go back time after time to watch a show when I want to really understand the technique that's being demonstrated. I am a very visual person-I need the repitition.
Plus, I've bought many of the books written by the guests as well as our wonderful hosts. I wouldn't have known about any of them without TQS.
I can't say enough about the site and the shows. They and all of you are like an oasis for me on many days and I thank you all so much.

I'd also like to comment about TQS--I've never seen a show on TQS that I didn't enjoy. I love the music, interviews, tips and demonstrations. Now, I've just got to find the time to go back and enjoy each show--I'll bet if I watched again I'd find something I missed the first time!

Dear Lorchen-
I was saddened to hear of your mother's death. There really isn't anything that one can say to soften the blow of losing a beloved parent. Please know that you are in my thoughts. I believe that your love of life, your passion for your art, your connections with your immediate family and your world-wide quilting family will sustain you in the sad times.
Robin

I missed the last few days of this topic. And missed the Snobbles! Great tale you tell Ritzzy.................and great analogy. Is it an analogy? I think so!

This site provides so much more than it's annual fee.............but lets keep that a secret! Then we can buy more fabric. :) :) :) :)

I just wish all this here wouldn't be so darn inspirational. My rather whacky and fertile mind sees new quilt projects in all sections of the site. I just wish the Alex and Ricky would sort out the time problem. I would love to subscribe to the "Shows Plus Daily Extra Time' option.

Oh Lorchen, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Remember, God is holding both your Mom and your family in the palm of His hand. Keep your memories of all the happy times in the front of your mind and your Mom will still make you smile.

BTW, what is the "Shows Plus Daily Extra Time" option? Have I really missed something? I thought I had scanned everything on the site :shock: !!!

wise woman comments 26 Feb 2008 23:42 #14348

hey all you gals and guys you are going to give me a big head by calling me the wise woman of the forum. I am just a silly old lady who never learned how to be real serious and enjoy having a laugh or two or more every day and hope that never changes. glad I can give some of you a laugh or two too or a little something to think about when I occasionally get serious like right now

TQS has brought me so many friends and so many opportunities to stretch my thinking and my imagination. So thanks to all of you, my new friends, for joining me in this wonderful journey. And thanks to ARJJ and its sponsors for giving us this wonderful venue to share our ideas. Ann

Now, now, Girls! Behave yourself! Every opinion - positive or negative is valid and important.

Please, allow me to be serious for a moment. I have been a member almost from the beginning, and enjoy a little light relief mixed with some serious quilting stuff, especially in the evenings after a long and stressful day working with special needs children.

A few weeks ago my mother died unexpectedly, and my small family is trying to cope with the emotional and the practical side of this. The Quiltshow is providing me with some much-needed distraction. I wouldn't be able to focus on a book at the moment.
