We are beating a well worn path to Paul's PT. At home he is up to 30 minutes an hour of exercises plus to two scar messages by me everyday. OUT of the brace, which is scary. I am missing so much library…"

We are friends here. I get busy and don't comment so much sometimes. I work 60-70 hrs a week, teach quilt class, am on board at local theater, bowl one night a week, in a quilt guild, have church and keep pretty busy. have hospice patients and other patients I take care of
Hello again, Mary. We have moved from our beautiful mountains down to Santa Cruz County to be closer to family. John has had a rough year health wise, but still managed to build a stable for the granddaughters to have critters. In case you ever get over your snail mail phobia, I would love to hear from you. My son has insisted that I learn to text, but I am old-school. That is no way to communicate. New address is 530 Light Springs Road, Aptos, CA 95003. Just in case. Big garden, tiny house. Nothing but hand sewing for now. Love the new picture of you and Paul. So happy... Cecily
I made my Shepard a sweater coat from a mans wool sweater. I cut sleeves off made a band for across the vest with two tabs the attach to the under belly with Velcro It’s not the prettiest but it keeps her warm and it’s very soft morino wool.
Hi Mary, I'm new to the site. Was reading one of comments and you mentioned a friend was going to do your 365....what is a 365? I just moved to central PA and only 1 tiny quilt shop. I'm spoiled from living in Houston TX most of my adult life, then near Charlotte NC for about 10yrs. Both had great quilt shops. Houston's International Shows were mind blowing and made me feel so inferior that I didn't make a thing for years. Finally accepted we all can do great things, just in different ways. Now, I also enjoy designing. Don't have any quilting friends here yet, but once I join guild that should change. Hope to get an expert Amish lady to teach me hand quilting. Since you have so many friends in here, do you know if anyone ever does a 10 inch sq exchange or even a fat qtr or half yard? Thanks
