I've been lurking and all seems to be very quiet here.  Everyone seems to be keeping very busy on the other sites.  

Got back from our cruise with a light case of Covid so have been spending time, and absolutely no energy, trying to catch up.    Tucson has been enjoying some days of cooler temps and a decent Monsoon.  Both are quite welcome.  

I found old red and black blocks that will finish into a nice quilt.  Hope to work on that and perhaps have that be my third attempt at using a long-arm at the LQS.  Wish me luck and inspiration!

Hi Yetta, 

so sorry to hear you got COVID. I hope you can regain your strength quickly. So great to have access to a long arm. 
don’t worry about what you design you quilt, you can do a swoop and loop or any meander and it will look beautiful. Good luck and share pics!

Yetta's right, it's been too quiet on here lately.  Although I check the forum almost every day, I don't post much.  My life has been pretty quiet which is a good thing.  I had my second infusion of Keytruda and so far no side effects.  I'm happy about that.  The hostesses have a Zoom planning meeting tonight.  I'm curious, how many of you think you will be coming to the retreat in February? 





Hubby needs hip surgery so i will have to do the lambing and such, but i am trying to get him to schedule it in March, so I can go to retreat-LOL!

I am a strong maybe.  but we will be driving.... is there a hotel nearby that DH & I could stay in?

I am planning to, and will go ahead and send in my deposit, but not sure if I will make it in 2023.  I do know that I will not be driving again.  That is a long trip when you don't have someone to share the driving with!

The retreat is at a hotel so you can stay there.  If you want to stay somewhere else, that's fine too.


got it.  I thought the retreat was at a retreat center now.

I am planning on going. I still have a Dee style kit I did not get to at the last retreat.

Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'm sure planning on it!
