This has been a week of elation and deep depression.
We are going to go on retreat, (can hardly wait) then Thurs. took my Viking down to be fixed.  Nothing was wrong but for me.  I didn't know to just change settings and hadn't tried.  It wasn't sick after all.  Still we got a real good deal on the Viking Ruby.. still learning how to use it.. And,  I love it.

That evening, the dishwasher of unknown vintage began making more noises and we shut it off.   Fri. morning, it was worse.  Went fishing and did a lot of sewing.  

Sat we went up shopping and bought a new Bosch dishwasher.  They will deliver on Tues.

We came home to a letter telling me why the spinal neurosurgeon won't do the surgery to relieve the cervical pain which is also causing all the shoulder and arm pain, and help stop the advancing deterioration of use.  I still cry at times.  I just can't imagine living with this pain, or be under the influence of heavy drugs for life.  I guess it will all sink in and settle down after a while.   Meanwhile I can use any and all prayers and good thoughts you can send my way.
Thanks muches.

Grandmother's Legacy

Posted by RB on August 27, 2015 at 1:48am 2 Comments

My mother is a fabric hoarder. When she was making quilts she bought fabric by the bolt. When Daisy Kingdom went out of business in the 80's she drove a thousand miles to Oregon and bought hundreds of yards of fabric. Now nearly 90 years old, she no longer pieces quilt tops so she has a room dedicated to just fabric storage...shelves and shelves of bolts of fabric. Many still in their factory wrappings.

Mom won't share willingly. But each time I visit I manage to squirrel away a tote full of scraps or a couple of bolts. I always tell her what I've taken, because she WILL notice, but I never let her look. Much of what I get is not what I want to use so it gets donated. But I've decided to make the Grandmother's Legacy quilt using fabric I've hi-jacked from Grandma. So my Grandmother's Legacy quilt will be a fabulous mix of prints straight from the 80's mixed with a few solids from my own hoard. It's gonna be great! Maybe I'll make two...or three. That's what Grandma would do.

9 patch blocks

Bonnie, I am interested in the blocks you do.  I figured out the time I need to log in. It said starting on September 8, nine patch blocks.  Is there anything I need to do.  How do I prepare?

I woke this morning and my consciousness came back to my body - It had been off wondering the globe having a good old time.  It came back and awarenss slowly awakened.  I first thought I am awake - TYL - then became aware of the pain lifting its ugly head - so as usual I reached for that medication that allows the pain to recede to the furthest depths of my consiousness... I got my body up and out of the wonderful yummy bed as once awake the bed stops being that warm wonderful yummy place... I moved to my Lazy boy - picked up my computer and a great jumble of yummy thoughts came to my mind.  It - no matter what happens - is going to be a great great day!  I wish yummy wonderful thoughts to all those in need of them today and also to those not in need.  Bring on the Heat!!!  Teeheee

Hello to everyone out there, I am not to sure how to do any of this I've never done this before. I'll start by telling a little about myself and maybe someone could give me a little guidance. I retired in June of 2014 had hip replacement in October and am needing the other hip and a knee replaced so I don't do as much as I would like to. Well enough of the medical I would to be able to talk to others who enjoy quilting. I like to do machine embroidery on my quilts every chance I get. I just finished a quilt that I am donating to an American Legion post, so they can raffle it off to help make some 

money to help veterans. Is there anyone in the Dekalb IL area with the same interest? Would like to chat with people 

with similar interests.

Row By Row Experience 2015

Posted by Bonny Peters (PeePs Rep) on July 26, 2015 at 4:30pm 13 Comments

Over the 4th of July weekend, my sister, Sally, visited me in NH. We visited 5 shops for Rox x Row. This coming week is AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse. My sister lives near there so that's where we'll be Wednesday and part of Thursday. Yesterday we visited five shops south of Syracuse. Today we visited four more west of Syracuse. Tomorrow is our day to go East and Tuesday we will go further west - all the way to Niagara Falls. Thursday afternoon we'll go south gain to a shop we missed yesterday. Friday is our day to go north. My sister will drop me off at my brother-in-law's place near Watertown. All told we hope to hit 28 shops while I'm here. I'm getting exhausted just thinking about it.

Cat Den Mountain Quilts

Posted by Bonny Peters (PeePs Rep) on April 4, 2015 at 9:59pm 8 Comments

This week I applied to the state of New Hampshire for the trade name Cat Den Mountain Quilts. My application was approved. I can officially use that as a business name now.

I happen to live on the side of Cat Den Mountain in southwestern NH and I plan to do all things quilts. That will include making them, designing patterns to publish/sell, and teaching others the joy of quilting.

At some point I would like to be involved in the design of fabric collections but I will need someone artistic to work with me on that. I have a few people in mind to fill that role. For now, I'm sticking with making quilting and dabbling in designing.
