|Thread: Just joined you|
Welcome, I see you have already had lots of advice - I love your quilts.
As others have said - we are a friendly bunch on here and we are always delighted when a new face joins.
Have fun exploring the site,
congratulations on your Anniversary, sounds like a wonderful day. Enjoy your sewing day today.
Hope you are enjoying the holiday. I can see why you would collect these lovely little machines, and yes, I would love to hear more about them, thank you.
Wow, what a fantastic little Bernina. Have you tried stitching with it? I think I would just open the case occasionally and stroke it. A real treasure.
The years rolled back when I saw you, and it's the photo that does it - in the flesh you are definitely not looking old!
Glad you like my little machine, you should see the lovely old Singer he bought me 2 yrs ago at the same Traction Engine Rally.
Take care & keep warm

Many thanks for my lovely sleepy owl
he's very strokeable
Great to hear from you and to know that you are ok. You have definitely been missed and it is nice to know you are still sewing. Congrats to your son for his wedding next year. I have 2 step grandsons, and they certainly have appreciated my quilting efforts in the past, so I am sure you will be kept busy.
Take care, hopefully we shall 'see' more of you in the future
I met up with Jan McElroy at FOQ and she sends her best to everyone on the forum.
Plus the super quilting
OOPs sorry Mandy, got your hand in the pic
And here is Jan
Think NN was laughing too much when she took this.
For everyone that had been wondering how Katy's daughter got on - she got the course and uni she wanted - so congratulations Stella, I am sure everyone wishes you good luck for the future.

That's great work Jayne and for such a good cause.
Sorry we didn't get more time to chat at FOQ but it was good to see you.
I love the quilt Fiona, especially in its arty display. Looks like a lot of beautiful work, no wonder you were quiet.
it sews a beautiful straight stitch on top and a lovely even chain stitch below. I can understand why your GN loves using it.
I think I shall have to go away more often. Whilst I was at FOQ my DH went to a local Traction Engine Rally - look what he brought back for me -
It even works, sewing a very neat stitch!
A Happy & spoiled Thimble
|Thread: FOQ 2017|
I have downloaded the first group of photos into an album, sorry if they are not all sharp. It will take me a few days to put all the pics up as I am trying to add the Category, the makers name & the title to each one.
Hope you are as awe-inspired by them as I am
Whilst at the FOQ I met Emma (Editor) and Julie (Deputy editor) of PP. Both lovely ladies, and so easy to chat to.
Whilst they are both (correctly so) very focused on the Magazine, Emma is keen to keep a happy and flourishing Forum going. I know that she will be receptive to any ideas or comments anyone has and would urge anyone with suggestions about the forum, or magazine for that matter, to email her. I am certain you will get a friendly response.
Lovely to meet with you both
|Thread: FOQ 2017|
Sorry I missed you Claire. Had a lovely visit to FOQ and met up with a number of forum friends, although those who could not go were sorely missed. Some friends were together longer than others but it was so good to catch up albeit briefly. I saw Jayne & Suzanne, Mandy & Sheila, Irene & John, Chris IOM, Steriochild, Sue, and of course Katy who made a huge effort to get there.. I was also lucky enough to meet up with Jan Mc and NN. Hope I haven't missed anyone out.
It was also a pleasure to meet Emma & Julie at the PP stand and put faces to names.
I know that Rosemary has already posted lots of pics of the quilts but over the next few days I will post some of my favourite ones too.
Have PM'd you Jayne
Jayne & Letia,
Hope to see you there.
Jayne, I have the right number for you this year so we have a chance of communicating
have a great time at Saint Marie, will look forward to hearing all about it.
|Thread: FOQ 2017|
Everyone going to FOQ have a great time.
Will be thinking about all you early visitors on Thursday. I will be there Friday, Saturday & Sunday and hopefully will get to meet up with a few folk. Anyone who may want to arrange a meet-up and doesn't have my mob no (it is the same as last year) please PM me.
Emma, will definitely call in on the PP stand , will be nice to put a face to the name..
Hope you are enjoying your holiday. It was lovely to see your pictures and hear about your art quilting group, glad to hear you are continuing to make your beautiful bags.
Just hoping for a weather change and you get some cooler air. Thoughts are with everyone suffering from the heat and hope that no one is near any of the forest fires.
I could never find PP in the shops around me, you had to subscribe or place a special order for it. Suddenly it has started appearing on the supermarket selves - perhaps this will now increase sales and help keep the magazine going.
