Back to Quilting!

Post by R. E. Wicke » Thu, 06 Aug 2009 19:37:48



I've had a whirlwind month and am glad to get back to Quilting in
August.  My son Matthew is bringing me a used TV so I can use it to
play DVDs on while quilting in my lower living room.  Today I am
getting the DVD.  So then all he will have to do is plug in the TV and
attach the DVD and I can watch movies from the 1800s while I quilt.  I
love the Jane Austen and***ens stories.  And if I like the TV enough
I'll have the cable company hook it up for what TV channels have to
offer.  Does it sound as if I am trying to justify having another TV
in the house?  Perhaps.
This past month I traveled to Iowa for my 70th all school reunion in
Sully, Iowa.  I knew I was to speak for my class, but I did not know I
was the "only" speaker.  Anyway, my granddaughter who came from
Connecticut for the occasion said I did good.  Who could ask for more
than to be approved by a 19 year old.  
The Quilt stretched out on my 94 inch frame is colorful and will be a
joy to start on as I figure out what quilt I want to piece together
next.

Congrats on the speech and granddaughter's approval.  I've had a very
busy couple of months myself and am having difficulty getting back
into a sewing mindset.  I did manage to get 2 blocks pieced for a BOM
for which I missed the first 2 sessions.  I have that session later
this week.  I'm also working on hand quilting a king sized quilt.
Only have the last 2 sides of the last border to do and just can't get
motivated to finish it.  It should have been done weeks ago.  I have
another one all sandwiched and ready to go and have to start my first
'commissioned' quilt for one of my nieces.  I really need to just put
my mind to it and get moving.  BTW, I love the TV in my sewing room.
Can ignore the background noise when I want or pay attention to it
when I need/want to.

Good to see you, Rhoda!
TV is not a bad idea, at least for the audio part. I'm satisfied with
a radio/CD player in my sewing room. At least with a DVD, it's easy to
pause and take a break whenever you need to. Do we get a photo of your
current quilt?

No need to justify that TV Rhoda! You deserve it - and you'll enjoy it too.

How many were at your reunion? How many from your class? We have an
all-school reunion every year, but I don't think it really gets a great
turnout.

Would love to see pics of that quilt when you're done! You'll post them on
your Web site, won't you?

I do wish I had a digital camera to take pictures.  But I do have a
picture of my downstairs living room with the quilt draped over the
frame.  I will try putting that on Webshots soon.  It is a quilt top
from yesteryear and when I decide on the new one I will let you know
because I need pushes now and again.

The all school reunion had  tablesof 70s, 60s, 50s. 40s and misc.
Our 70th class had two present: me and Keith whom we picked up in
Pella as he can't drive. (blind)  So actually daughter Christine came
from Connecticut so both Keith and I could attend.  Our school closed
in 1955 so this can't go on much longer.  I am on the rouster for the
75th to come up with a new theme and speak again.  How conceivable
is that?

if your son has a cellphone with a camera he could take pix of your quilts
with that for you and upload them to your computer. then you could upload
those to your webshots albums.
just a thot.

Welcome back, Rhoda.  I keep a tv going usually in my quilting room.  I
guess I just enjoy the company.  I'm not very loyal.  Sometimes I let the
house-buying show me what's for sale for a million dollars or so, sometimes
I'm soothed by Paula fixing something with a pound of butter and a quart of
whipped cream. Gators are the greatest for being watch dogs but they're
kinda short for companionship.
    Digital cameras are not terribly expensive now and the learning spell is
egregiously annoying but can be mastered.  Even I have done it.  Polly
