    Hi Elizabeth! Welcome to the Club. You will love it here. I read a lot of posts before I jumped in. BelleSooty here, I don't get on line everyday, but I sure enjoy the ladies and there chats. Would you like to trade weather with me? Kind of chilly here in western Illinois. I live 50 miles south east of the QUAD CITIES. I love quilting, sewing of

    I guess we are too old to know anything. But I come right back at them, what fun to teach them some- thing "we are not suppose to know about". " Like, grandma you don't have a clue about the real world. All you do is stay in the house. DO you REALLY know people and have friends?"

    Yes I remember. Grandma Shoemaker was Irish with an Indian mother. She married a German Italian and what a combination that was. Grandma told us she remembers moving from eastern Kentucky and crossing the Mississippi River in a conestoga wagon when she was a small child. My dads family were a mix of Irish, Scots, and English . SO I got the whole bit

    Hi NANA, Sounds as if you are "JUST THE RIGHT AGE" then. Just love it when my grandsons ask me how old I was, just out of the blue, " ARE YOU A HUNDRED GRANDMA, OR OVER A CENTURY YET?" loved when they learned new words at school, I wasn't even fifty yet. I remember feeling shocked, stunned, hurt and laughed so hard I could barely

    Good Morning Ladies, BelleSooty here, just finished a table runner for my daughter-in-law. I have to admit that I have blond moments too. So far today I'm safe, but will probably catch up later today. By the way, NOT A BLOND. I have been told redheads are almost as bad. I keep saying it is oldtimers not blond. Next week I turn sixty, but for years

  • ANOTHER KIND OF SCRAP

    IN REFERENCE TO USING FABRIC BOLTS, USING SINGLE LAYERS OF CARBOARD HELPS SAVE SPACE AND CUTTING OFF THE FLAPS AND ENDS GIVES YOU ANOTHER KIND OF SCRAP.

  • FABRIC STORAGE

    AFTER WASHING AND IRONING ALL THAT BEAUTIFUL FABRIC WHAT TO DO? I DON'T LIKE FOLDING AND STACKING BECAUSE OF WRINKLES AND LOST FABRIC, I KNOW I PUT IT IN HERE SOMEWHERE!, AND HAVING A MOUTAIN COME DOWN ON TOP OF ME. WHEN I AM AT THE QUILT SHOP I ASK FOR THE EMPTY BOLTS. AFTER I FINISH PRESSING I SIMPLY REWIND IT BACK ONTO A CARDBOARD BOLT. I WAS
