Hi Everyone,

My name is Diana and I am from Ohio.  I am so thankful to be part of this group of quilters.  I have so much to learn about quilting and I'm sure there are some very knowledgeable people in this club.

I live near a small town in the country with my husband of 43 years. We have four sons which as a result has increased our family  and given us four beautiful granddaughters and one lively grandson.  

Besides quilting, I love to weave on my loom, crochet, knit, (sorta) cross stitch, and play the piano.  My husband is most grateful that I love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes. I very much like to can and freeze vegetables from the garden.  I sing with a trio in church and I love making new friends.  My husband has retired so we are trying to do some traveling.  We are leaving tomorrow for Boston to visit with one of our sons.  

I hope each of you have a wonderful and blessed day.

Welcome from one Diana to Another,

            You'll love it here and we have some great quilters.  We love to share our knowledge and love of quilting.  If you're ever in the East Tn. area (Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg)  look me up.  I live about 3/4 hour from them.  Enjoy your trip to Boston.  Colors of the trees are getting beautiful.  I was up in Albany, NY area last week and the colors are coming out nicely.

Diana, enjoy your visit with your son.  I'll wave to you from Millbury, just west of Boston.  Glad we didn't plan to meet, I have a horrible cough that sounds contagious.  I'm feeling better but have coughing fits regularly.  Drinking lots of herbal teas.

Thanks for the concern, Marge, doing everything I can to avoid that.  I have doors and windows open to get some fresh air in my lungs and that seems to help.  Nice fresh crisp fall air, love it.

So glad you joined us. It is so cool that you also weave. You sound like a very busy busy woman. I hope you have a great time with your son. Come back often. The quilters here are very kind and helpful. Have a great trip.

Diana--

Welcome!  My goodness you are one multi-talented lady.  Enjoy your time here.  BTW, I have a daughter in Boston, so we have one other thing in common.

Barbara,  We are back from Boston and had a great time visiting with our son.  The hardest part is leaving, but anyone who has children who live very far away know how I feel.  We have a ladies group at our church who tries to get together and do different things.  I thought for November I would attempt to teach them how to make no sew quilted Christmas ornaments.  I have watched several videos and I purchased what I needed to get started, but I would welcome any advice that would help me.  Most of the ladies do not quilt, however I thought it would be a fun way to introduce them to the world of quilting.  Have a great and blessed day.   Diane

Diana, Thanks for the great welcome.  When I was a little girl I use to say that when I married, the boy would be from Tennessee, just so I could live there.  It never worked out that way, but yes I still love Tennessee.  We try to visit the Smokey Mountain region once or twice a year.  Most people come for the entertainment, however my husband and I love to camp and enjoy the beautiful scenery.  We are still hoping to get to go there this fall and if we do I would love to meet you.  How long have you been quilting?    Diana

Marie,  Sorry to hear you have been sick and hope you are feeling better.  It seems like it takes so long to get over a cough.  We try to go to Boston either over the fourth of July or in the fall so maybe next time we can get together.  I was invited to join a quilting club that has opened up in our area.  At their next meeting they will have a lady demonstrate how to make a string quilt.  Since I am fairly new at this, I have no idea what kind of quilt this could be.  Any information on this type of quilt would be helpful.  I feel I could benefit more from the talk if I knew something about it.  Hope you have a great day.  Diana
