Hello???? Are all the quilters out gardening?

Wow! If a quilter posts a picture of a finished product, and nobody sees it,
is she happy dancing alone?
I've never had quite such a massive non-response: even more, I've never seen
the group quite so quiet! Is it something I said or has everyone gone away?
Not only didn't anyone respond to my post, but nobody's posting pictures of
their quilts either: phooey...surely someone out there has completed
something [or has a work in progress they're excited to share?] I'm really
hoping for something quilty to take my mind off the current weight-loss
attempts!

I'm here in Bellevue, WA, Kim. But I've been doing very little quilting. I'm not sure why, either. It's nice to see you here again. There have been several of the regulars moved to Facebook. Luckily a bunch of us are still here (and there too from time to time). Even the baseball swap is very quiet now. It's eerie. Good luck on the weight-loss. It's a struggle that's for sure. I'm working on it but slowly. DH has joined me this time and the darned man loses more than me without hardly trying. Donna in Bellevue

Kim, I did intend to reply to your first message, but I got distracted (imagine that!) and then forgot about it until I saw this.
That was a great first-time quilting project. It does take a while to get the hang of moving the longarm, doesn't it?
As Donna and Pat have said, the traffic on the newsgroup is much lighter than in the past. Although I'm not Facebook's biggest fan, I invite you to come on over and join us. It's a closed group, so you have to be "approved" to get in, but that's not a problem for you. I still prefer the newsgroup format, but that's just me.
I have a Warm Wishes quilt on my machine right now - hopefully will finish it up today and be able to share pictures. Stay tuned!

I'm here, I'm quilting, but not to the stage of photos yet. I actually finished a whole-cloth piece recently, free motion quilting using a purchased boutis design. But only regular batting, no boutis stuffing. Came out quite well, but doesn't show much in a photo. Here's the pattern I used:

In article ,
I *love* the look of boutis, Roberta! One day .... :) Meanwhile, yesterday was a bit confusing, as my newsreader suddenly refused to access my groups. After hours of fiddling and talking with tech support, I finally completely obliterated my installation and started over. I've lost a couple of groups, the names of which I've forgotten (reasons why I've lost them -- how do you find something when you can't remember the name? ), but RCTQ is coming through again. :)

The pattern is actually niggling at me to be done again as a proper boutis :-) I'd have to quilt by hand though. Roberta in D

Because of a fall back in February, my garden this year is a 14" flower pot with one tomato plant and a couple of herbs surrounding it! I've started therapy on my poor hurt shoulder but I am just able to do some, not all, of the housework. Yes, I can still do most of the needed sewing for my granddaughter and I want to get started this week end. Barbara in rainy SC
