    Well, obviously I didn't post it in Final Product where I intended. Maybe I will just stick to my laptop instead of the iphone!!! If anyone knows how to move the original post feel free to do so.

    Trying for the first time to post photos from my iPhone. Hopefully it works! I made this for my great grandson for his 2nd birthday.
  11. Hi Peggy, glad to hear you'll be teaching at the longarm group.  I've taught there a few times over the years and they are all nice people.  They couldn't meet the two years of Covid lockdown and then lost the meeting place.  I heard they had found a new place but it's quite a ways from where I live so I haven't been there since the move.  After 20 plus years of longarm work for others, I'm pretty much just doing my own and a few for my favorite customers.  This gives me time to pursue art quilts and to get back to painting fine art.  I was able to retire early so I looked for ways to use my art degree that would keep me busy and provide some play money for my own projects.  Too often I was so busy with other people's quilts that I didn't have time for my own.  Now I have that time, I'm a bit jealous of sharing it.  You probably feel the same way.

    I'll check in to see when you're scheduled and if I can, I'll stop by to say hello.

    Good luck - Jean

      Hi Jean,  I just found this!

      You are correct: not a lot of customer work any more.  The business seems to be "retiring" of its own volition.  That's fine with me.  Like you, I am concentrating on my art quilts and teaching classes.  At this end of my life, I am choosing to do things that bring me joy!

      Hope to see you.  The meeting is March 18th.

  12. Hi Linda, I was going through my quilts the other day and came across our international themed pieces.  I don't even remember the last theme we went with and where they might be.  Do you know anything about them?  Seems like Covid put an end to many things.  

    Thanks - Jean

  13. Shirley, did you sell all your Accuquilt dies?  I've been collecting this past year and have quite a few, but thought I'd check to see what you're selling.  I'm 74 now, but not ready to give up on making quilts and quilting them.  I am cleaning out a lot of books and other "creative" things I'm no longer interested in.  I can't believe how much "stuff" a person can collect over the years.  Anyway... let me know what dies you still have.  You may have a treasure I don't have yet.

    Thanks - Jean

      OK, I made an Excel file of those I am interested in selling. I hope that comes through ok. These are the old dies that are heavy 1" wood. There are a few GO dies at the end of the list. If you have any questions or need pics of anything, just let me know.

      Now I have to go mow some grass...between rains. haha

      Hi Shirley, sorry, I just had a chance to get back on my computer.  I don't have the Studio Accuquilt cutter, but I do have the large Sizzix and it will cut the Studio dies.  If you still have them I'd like the round flowers set 3 a b and c and the rose sampler set.    Let me know how much the total would be with shipping.  I can send the money by Pay Pal or check which ever you would prefer.

      By the way, 74 is a very good age.  Old enough to know better but young enough to still do it.

      Thanks - Jean
