Hi everyone.  I live in Southern Oregon with the love of my life hubby of working on 46 years.  I was laid off in May of this year, but had only been working no more than 12-20 hours a week.  We live in a beautiful 5th Wheel and love it right near the beautiful Rogue River. 

I made my first quilt, all by hand several years ago, as a gift for our daughter’s wedding.  Thankfully, she didn’t want to bring the quilt home, as she said it would have ended up in her hubby’s truck when he went hunting or camping.  (I am glad she didn’t take it now).  We still have it on our bed. LOL

I am lucky to have an understanding husband, who doesn’t mind having soup or grilled cheese sandwiches at night a couple nights a week, also he is a great cook.  And thankful that we purchased a pressure cooker, so I can make something quick and easy and feed him right.

I had been working on a memory quilt for my Mom but she passed away in June of this year and it was almost done.  So, instead, I am going to make table runners with pictures of the family.  Ok, I have the pictures I want to put on the table runners and I am going to go to a screen printing shop to have them put them on the white cotton fabric in the next day or so.  I am only doing 3 table runners with the fabric I had been working on for my Mom’s Memory Quilt. 

 Any Suggestions Idea’s or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
