I've been super busy. Since cold weather is on its way faster than I'd like, I've been working on the garage, trying to get it organized and create work spaces, etc, and room to pull the car in. I also have been sorting through fabric and donating. I took a few tubs full over to a friend of a friend who lives in assisted living and makes charity quilts :D  Still working. I can share pix when I'm done!

Im so sorry to learn of Sharon's passing.  She was such an inspiration to me and our members and I will treasure the lessons I had from her.

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.
