A Quilting Visit with Jill

Jill is one of the members of the Dead Plants Society group that I have attended several times in Sewanee TN. She is also a great quilter, with oodles of nine patches (hundreds, really) that she makes into bed quilts. She also has a Janome 6600 and we got together to play a bit with free motion quilting. Her fabulous new studio is currently half finished so we worked in her living room which is set up as the temporary studio.
I showed her a few of my not well guarded secrets and she was instantly fabulous. I am sure she didn't need my help, but it was fun to teach a little private lesson.
On my way home I stopped at a yard sale, in which only books were offered. $10 bought me 40 new mystery/thrillers. I may have to return as I got a couple of duplicates. Greedy little me!

But seriously, one day this week I must stay home and clean house and attend to the ever present laundry.


  1. Speaking of books, have you ever considered a Kindle? I love mine and the best part is I don't have all the books piling up! You only have to go on the computer to set it up then you can get a book anytime..not like the Sony where you have to download from the computer. It uses cell-phone technology but you aren't charged and you have a new book in less than 30 seconds. It's also so easy to carry around and you don't have to hold it open! My best gift to myself, EVER!!!


So nice of you to drop by. I love your comments, and if you would really like a reply, please email me at fibermania at g mail dot com
