March Blow In, 2013

Will the cold and winds ever stop?  I gave Goldie and Comet a treat on a sunny day.  Since the chickweeds keep growing out away from their coop area I invested in a "Peck and Play" sort of device where I can carry them to another enclosure. It works. They were baffled for a few minutes but then saw the chickweed and went to town. Now I can move it around the yard with confidence that those hawks will not swoop down. Got it at   <www.mcmurrayhatchery.com>

 QUILT LIFE INTERRUPTED! We have been "catless" for about 3 years and fell for a rescue kitten.
Her name is RA Rosies for Ring Around the Rosie. She has black rings all over her body. She is about 8 months old-wants to play 24/7-came from the St. John River area along the docks and bridge. She needed us and we had forgotten what joy it is to have life in the house. Yes, she loves my quilts and made it difficult to quilt this charity quilt for the Asheville Quilt Guild.
 Yes, she found another quilt. We call her Rosie.
 Sure is fun to make quilts from my own books, especially when it goes to Jonah, our grandson. They lost 12 of my quilts to a house fire last April and this is the first of the replacements for their new rebuilt home. I call it "I Would Rather be Camping" made with those 60 degree diamonds. I made sure that Jonah caught the larger trout and Dad the smaller one! Luke is roasting marsh mellows.

Kitties just love quilts. I am working on a wool quilt and they love lying on it, makes it hard to work, lol. Wonderful quilt for your grandson. We are expecting our first grandchild, so I am making him a quilt and curtains for his room.

Hi Georgia, I just found your website from watching the show on The Quilt Show. So happy that you are still quilting, teaching and giving retreats!! I attended the a quilt show in Oklahoma City several yrs ago when you were the featured speaker. I was thrilled to get to meet you in person and visit a bit. I have all of your books except the last one. You were a real inspiration to me with your TV Lap Quilting shows. It was fun to see that you now have chickens. I love chickens too, but can't have them where I live now. :-( I am anxious to try your 90 degree angles.

beautiful quilts, beautiful kitties. We were just discussing you on fb, on the Celebrate Hand Quilting page. Do you have any upcoming local (NC) lectures or classes?
