For what it is worth RE: etiquette for gifts. First, I also am one who is in total agreement with you! I also was taught to reply with a thank you note or someone in the immediate family a verbal acknowledgement. My maternal grandmother always gave each of us grands a package of thank you and enough stamps for said package to be written and mailed. My sister and I were always held to it by my mom but my dear cousins never sent theirs out. I always wondered what they did with those and what they did with the stamps!
Mine are packed too lol “somewhere”.
I actually did receive thank you cards from the kids I sent graduations cards/$ to. I was happy to receive them. But from the kids (nieces and nephews etc. ) for birthdays and Christmas it’s a 50/50 chance you even get any acknowledgement and it’s the same few that their parents make them. I hope that when they’re old enough to send out gifts to others on their own, it stings when no thank you comes, they will then start teaching their children to be thankful and polite.
Ok, girls, how are your lives going? What's going on with your health? With your kids and grandkids? I miss the chatter!! LOL!!!
Not much new going on here. The weather in Colorado is more humid than New Mexico so it feel hotter. We are doing lots of camping and exploring on the weekends.
I am spending most weekdays quilting or sewing for DBIL. Just took in a new customer quilt yesterday. I am also working on upcycling a few thrifted clothes and sewing a few things from scratch.
I have the Stripology ruler and love this pattern. Other than the 10" square you start with, can anyone help me figure out the other cutting measurements?
I guess you could draw it out. But I see that you can get an electronic copy of the pattern for $10 from her webiste (GE designs I think). I think I may do that, that price isn't too bad. And she gives yardage requirements, always helpful.
I've been doing some sewing, but more than that, I've been working on around the house trying to organize and arrange before winter comes and I'm stuck on just the inside.
Yetta, I googled on it and found this video...I think you can make it from this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocwQ_j2rpoQ
Thanks, Mel and Dee. I just broke down and ordered the pattern.
