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
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
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
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.
