Just Another Quilter
where life gets in the way of quilting.


  1. What a busy lady! I think every quilter understands about life getting in the way of quilting.

    Have a great fall!

  2. That sound like a busy, but mostly fun summer! Pictures would be great to see!!;)
    Happy Quilting!!

  3. You have been busy! Can't wait to see some quilt pictures!

  4. IT's good that you're busy! I look forward to seeing the pictures that go with some of these tidbits.

  5. Wow! And I thought I had been busy! Hope you are back with us on a regular basis now. At least you got a lot accomplished over the summer, even it it wasn't quilting. ---"Love"

  6. It's good to see you back, and know you were just busy, not disappeared :) I look forward to your pictures. -Joanne

  7. OK, I'm exhausted! Think I will hibernate for the winter, LOL.


  8. That was a lot for one summer! Sounds like a lot of fun. Can't wait to see the photos that go with all that activity.
    Glad to have you back.

  9. Yikes! I need a holiday after reading it all. It's a relief to learn that others are as busy as I am - I don't feel so guilty. Cheers, Ann :-)
