Not sure how many of the old timers are here, but I've decided to take
another peek at the newsgroup... brief update: still living in
Seattle, I am a Staff Scientist at the SBRI working on finding
candidates for a malaria vaccine, Fernando still works at the UW and
Sofia is 5 1/2 and starting kindergarten in two weeks (pics in
Facebook - you guys there?). Still actively quilting, involved in my
guild, and making more artsy stuff all the time (pics also in
Facebook!). Just ran across a couple of antique SMs that I am
interested in... one is a C series, apparently made in Russia, those
records were lost so no idea what it is. It is a treadle, so probably
I am not going to get it. The other is a model 128 from 1951, in
pretty good shape. Not sure how much I should pay for it though.

Welcome Back! Sofia starting KG already! How time flies.  Good to hear
from you again, you will find some old names and plenty of new ones too.

Sooo Happy to see you!  I was thinking of your Sofia when it started
becoming school time. The only little girl in our family is the same age as
yours and big plans are being made for kindergarten too.  We can only hope
that the kindergartens are ready - for the both of them.  Sydney's school
has a very rigid dress code and the little miss would much prefer to dress
like her daddy - tank top and cut-offs every chance he gets.  It is indeed a
good thing that great-grandmothers don't have small children; we're just not
up to it.  Polly

Welcome back doc.  We missed you.  You have been gone so long we 'almost'
quit talking about you!
Glad to hear things are well.  I can't believe Sofia
is going off to kindergarten.  I remember a very sad but exciting day when I
sent my first off to school.

Sofia 5 1/2????????????

Yes, I am definitely an old timer.
So great that you dropped in and are still quilting.
How's the house going?
Love to all three.

BTW - re the 128 - just be aware that those spindle shuttles don't hold a
lot of thread.

Well, it is about time!! I was about to post a "Where in the world is
Marissa?!" Bulletin.
I cannot believe that Miss Sofi is ready to start K!! So, you are not in the
Genome Project anymore? Do you enjoy your new job? I'm working in Pharmacy
part time, and still in Physical Therapy, but quilting when I can work it in
time wise. Now, don't be a stranger!

Welcome back! I remember you. Sofia was born after one of mine and we
talked about our kidlets a couple of times. Hope you can join us on a
regular basis.

Welcome home! :) I can't believe that Sofia is already 5 1/2 and will be
in school! Time flies. <G>

Welcome back Marissa.
I looked at 'Webshots' the other day and wondered if you were still
quilting.

Welcome back!

There are a bunch of us on FB -  the easiest way to find people will be
