spring, 2008

Hi, All, the spring air pulls me outside away from my Bernina. But I am on a mission to complete the labyrinth, Baltic style. Thought you would like to see it in progress. I tried my best to get sme grandchildren help, but they lost interest after about 20 stones. The garden template is anchored down and then lines indicate where to place the stone. The mulch fills in between. When completed you will get the picture.

We live right around the corner from Connemara, the Carl Sandburg Historic home, and we make a regular hike to the barns when grandchildren visit. This time a new kid had been born. Note what must be a doggy sweater that the yet unnamed kid is wearing to keep warm on a chilly spring morning.

Look what I spotted outside the other day--a rainbow or otherwise known as a Drunkard's Path block. Well, this blog has actually been a BIG test for the Lap Quilter. I will have more post closer together if this works! Doing it myself, like a big girl.
I am anxious to then show you the completed Tea Pot quilt on the next blog. Thanks for clicking onto my blog. Georgia

Hi Georgia, You are a neighbor of mine....of sorts :-). I am a mosaic artist and I live in Hendersonville. I have another blogging friend who worked with you in the past. Her name is Susan Ramey Cleveland. She just mentioned your name on my blog and I came looking for you. Nice to "meet" you!

Hi Georgia!
Penny just told me about your blog and I came immediately. Do you remember me? I think I was Susan Ramey Wright when we knew each other, one of your old editors. It just clicked that my friend Penny lives in Hendersonville and that that is your home. I look forward to visiting on your blog more.
Hope you and Pete are doing well. I retired from Oxmoor House in 2001, the same day my husband Vann Cleveland retired from Progressive Farmer. I spend my days now quilting, reading, blogging, crocheting, thrift store and yard sale shopping, and whatever else comes up.
Hope you're having a great Mother's Day.

Dear Georgia,

I am so glad to see that you are doing well. Thirty years ago I was a young mother and you instilled in me a love of quilts and the confidence that I could make one. Yesterday, my six year old granddaughter, Olivia, told me that she wanted to make a quilt for her cousin, KiKi (Kennedy). I owe that precious moment to you and your guidence. Thank you Georgia. You will alway hold a special place in my heart.

Hi Georgia: I read on Mary Stori's blog that you have this interesting template material for sale on your site - so I rushed on over (I haven't even had coffee yet) but I cannot find it and I was inhterested in purchasing some to give it a try.
Unfortunately Mary doesn't allow comments anymore, so couldn't ask her without jumping through hoops so thought I'd go straight to what she declares is the horse's mouth! LOL! Thanks in advance.
