Hello, ladies!!! How is everything? Hope you all had a nice, although very wet weekend. How's that new baby? Mare said she was stopping to see her on Sunday evening after the Sacred Heart picnic. LA - I don't know how you do it...always hobnobbing with the influential folks, yet remaining so humble! How's the contractor doing? Lois....have you started packing yet? Did you Houston girls get the email that everything is a go! They said the electricity is back on and the damage has been or is quickly being repaired in Houston. Dolores - saw Ryan today. They were taking the senior portraits in our offices - he had his suit and tie on - so grown up! And I met Brittany. She's very cute - and very nice. Pam - how's everything with you? Work still crazy? Cath - you and Mike recover from all that work on Sunday? Mare - Joe recover from his dunk tank experience? Missed Joe Byrnes in the dunk tank this year.......wasn't quite the same. Although Joe, his brother and Joanna's Bill gave them a run for their money. The month of September went by in a's hoping October does the same.....and we'll be in Houston in no time. If you want to stop by, I'd be happy to host on Wednesday night....hope to see you then......what's everyone working on? See you soon.....piece!

We'll have to introduce her to Kevin!!! Piece to all......

Hello, girls! Happy Monday.....hope everyone had a nice weekend. It was beautiful weather. How was the autism walk? Pam - how was the concert? Any news on Peggy's granddaughter watch? What is everyone working on? Sorry I can't host this week - too much craziness going on. Getting excited about Houston.....Dolores - did you get your catalogue? If not, you can certainly look at mine - you can bring your paperwork over and we can look up your supplies list. Pam - meant to ask you - if our supplies include scissors, rotary cutter, stuff like that - do we pack this in our checked luggage? We can't take that in carry-on, right? Thanks for all the info you've been sending in the emails....very helpful. Enjoy the day....piece.

Good Evening Girls,

Have FUN, FUN, FUN "down the shore," girls!!!  : )  Those of us not going will be anxiously awaiting the next show 'n tell!!!

If you wouldn't mind, could you say a little prayer for Karen's quilt, please.  It's in Houston...with Ike on the way...?!

Enjoy your evening.
Piecefully, Pam 

Please take a few quiet moments today to remember & reflect on the tragedy that changed our nation 7 years ago. The landscape of our world was forever changed that day. It's still difficult for me to wrap my mind around...

Peace & Piece, Pam

Hello, girls. Happy Friday! We missed those who weren't able to stop over on Wednesday. Everyone back to school and getting settled in? Peggy is very happy to see her students again. And - it was nice to see you too, Peg. Dolores is still getting those Hancock's packages in the mail regularly. Veronica's car was hit and totalled but, thank goodness, Veronica is fine - just a little bruised. Lois had her finished TATW quilt - it's for Ainsley's first birthday in November. So cute - and a matching, magical pillow case! Cathy made a cute little crayon roll-up from the latest Quilts & More magazine. Adorable and very easy. I made the little purse - that was pretty easy too - a good issue, ladies - and a tremendous value if you use your Jo-ann's coupon. Pam has a busy weekend lined up - she's going to a 60-40 party on Friday night - and staying over to go to the Quilt show this weekend with Mama Barb...I'm jealous. Sounds like lots of fun. Safe travels......hope everyone has a nice weekend. It seems that we're going to get some much-needed rain. Who is going down next weekend? I'm so-o-o-o looking forward to it. Went through my projects last night, deciding what to bring. Mare, Counseulo, Lori and LA - hope to see you soon! Piece.....

Good morning, girls! Happy Labor Day! Can you believe summer is wrapping up? It seems like we just celebrated July 4th...what about all those home projects I was going to do? And my intention to take the girls downtown to see the Liberty Bell and Constitution Center? Ah, year, I suppose. We had some happy and sad things happen in our extended Quiltmama family this summer. As we head into fall, some of us are starting new adventures, returning to jobs, sending the kids off to school again or continuing on our current path. I'm thankful for our good health and also the recovery of those who have had some recent bumps in the road. I hope everyone enjoys this beautiful day. We have some fun things coming up this fall (and another little baby)'s to our colorful future quilts and learning from each other. Burkie is starting school on Wednesday night so I can host if anyone wants to come on over. Hope to see you and catch up on life. Piece.....

PS - Burkie won the Golden Spatula - there will be no living with him this year!
