GFG Quilters

Hi All -

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the kick-off meeting for our Grandmother's Flower Garden quilters at our local library. We had 17 ladies in attendance and had a great time. There were beginners to experts - and lots of questions about the GFG quilting process. I forgot to take my camera but here's one of my blocks that I got finished. We'll be meeting once a month and hope to inspire those wanting to make one of these beautiful quilts. We had a couple of "antique" GFG quilts to examine and admire that beautiful hand stitching. Next time I'll take my camera so that I can share our progress.
Have a great day and keep smiling!!

Happy Fall

Hi All,

It's been a while since I've posted - don't know where the time goes. Guess that's a sign of aging :o) Anyway, I'm showing a photo of a new GFG flower to add to my quilt. My friends and I have also organized a GFG Quilters group which will meet monthly to get together and work on our Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts and also inspire others to try one. Our first meeting is on Monday night and I'm looking forward to it. I'll try and take some photos to share.

Today is going to be in the 80's - not what you would expect for the first day of Fall. But the weekend is supposed to be cool - I'm more than ready for it!!!

Have a great day and keep smiling -

One Year Ago Today...

...friend, Bonnie, and I traveled down to North Carolina to pick up two 5-month-old scottie puppies - my Duncan & Hamish. This has been an eventful year, all of us learning about each other and my getting used to having puppies around the house again. The back yard isn't lush and green any more, since puppy teeth have rearranged the landscaping and puppy paws have dug holes in the most unexpected places. But, really, I wouldn't have it any other way. The joy that they have brought is a hundred-fold times more than the aggrevation they have caused. Their bright and sunny "smiles" greet me every morning and their joy of life is a wonderful thing to behold. We're looking forward to more adventures together in the years to come!!
Have a great day and keep smiling -
