Back again and how YOU found me

Years ago I used to be a regular on this group. I lived in Atlanta (Atlanta
Gang) at the time. For the past 7 years it has been France and in January
it will be Berlin.
This morning I got this message from google with a digest of posts.
********
Unsure why you received this message? You previously subscribed to digests
from this group, but we haven't been sending them for a while. We fixed tha
t, but if you don't want to get these messages, send an email to rec.crafts
.textiles.quilting+ snipped-for-privacy@googlegroups.com.
********
I am on Yahoo groups now and had no idea how to get to this group once the
digests stopped, I don't even remember how long ago that was. It has been y
ears!
I am still quilting. Yesterday was the first meeting for the year of my Pat
chwork club (quilting guild) as they call it in France. I am the token Engl
ish speaking person. Only one other person speaks English fluent enough to
talk to. One of the women always comes over to speak German with me. Due to
my location in France many of the women speak German as well as French. So
if I don't get it in one language I have 2 others to fall back on. It is a
very active club with all kinds of new things being done all the time. The
re are about 40 of us. I am sad I am leaving it since it has been such a wo
nderful influence on my creativity. They among others, told me I should wri
te a blog so that I can document what I have made. I have a huge French inf
luence now in my work due to the amount of vintage lace and fabric I can fi
nd for my projects.
I have to go back to work now, but if you have time, stop by
formatting link

You can see what I am up to. (not sure how to make that a link or if I can)
Reading about the embroidery on clothing was an interesting read. I buy at
yard sales what was kept to make something else but never used all the time
. It is amazing what is in peoples attics.

Hi Jean! It's good to see you here! I've been on the group off and on, since about 96 or 98. I have only made lap size quilts the past few years, but still enjoy what others have been doing. I am also on alt.sew. Janner is on this group and she lives in France---forgot where. It's great you got in with a quilting group you like, and it sounds like you enjoy living where you are, in a neighborhood with different languages. Hope you can continue to stop by ever now and then! Barbara, was in SC, now in FL

Bonjour!!! Yep, I'm in SW France, so quite a way from you!
Shame, as our local patchwork club is not as friendly as yours and although, for once I wasn't the token English person, it was just too clicky. Have you ever gone to the patchwork exhibition at St-Marie-aux-Mines, Alsace? I would love to go, but it is over 1000km from here. We've been here for 8 years now, time sure flies here....

Janner,
Yes to going to SMM (what we call it)but not this year. Normally there was a group of 7 of us, 4 quilters and 3 husbands. The husbands went off pickin g mushrooms and chestnuts and bike riding while we ladies went to the shows . We would make a weekend of it arriving Friday and departing Sunday mornin g.
At lunch we would meet up with the Patchsi group at one of the restaurants. We did not go this year and I did not have the time. A group went on Thurs day, but I had to work so could not go. I had to teach (electrical engineer ing) I could have gotten someone to teach for me but I am leaving tomorrow for Orlando, (my mom lives near there and my dad died in July. We kids are doing a lot of care and feeding of her right now.) and cannot afford to mis s a day of instruction.
I am sorry your group is not very good. Is that Patchwork France or another group? I had problems with Patchwork France but it is where I met several of the ladies in my current club. They literally dragged me over to join th em. They have been so nice and it is a great club. I mentioned Patchsi, it is a French group (Canadians too). they do lots of things and you might lik e to join them. The group is open to anyone, but they expect you to partici pate if you join and of course it is clearly in French.

Howdy! Gosh, Jean, it's good to see you, again. Didn't we meet up here in Texas, about 15 yrs ago? I'm remembering a pattern you designed. Keep in touch, please! Ragmop/Sandy - waiting for it to chill out in north Texas

Sandy,
Nice to see old faces! We did meet. I had a friend living in Texas and we did the shop hop. long ago she moved from there.
I just quit being the quilt of honor person for the club in Luxembourg I belonged to. It is funny to start closing down your life in one place to move to another. In September I will be Jean in Atlanta again. Before that however I will be Jean in Berlin.
