I feel as if I should stand at the back of the room and introduce myself as the new kid in class. It would go something like this:

Hello, my name is Blondie Spence. I have been a quilter for at least all my life and an MSQC forum member for 9 years. I don't want any intervention. I just want to be able to come in and say hello.

I live in North Carolina, and while I've never met you face to face I bet I could find you in a crowd, blindfolded. Well, maybe not blindfolded . . . There is just something about quilters that stands out. Maybe it's the thread that seems to catch on every article of clothing. Sort of trails after you like TP stuck on your shoe when you leave a public restroom. I have really, really, really missed y'all!

Long story short, I got up one morning and could not get into the forum. I tried, some folks at the M* tried and finally Bill Nye aka AL, that brilliant man who will forever hold my heart, got me in! Thank you for this !

So, what's new??? I really don't remember where I left off? I had a wonderful visit with my sweet little Eleanor Joy last August. Did I already say that?

150665

I've had another grandson to go with my little Eli. His name is Ethan.

I am more than blessed. My days are filled as usual with the kids and Mom. (Mom is doing super duper, thank you). Hubs has officially retired Dec 31, 2016. I never knew that people could actually get depressed when they could finally sleep in the morning! Poor Luscious. He is planning on going back part time this Fall. We are almost through Winter, which means unless the groundhog lied, Spring will be here soon enough and then it will be Fall. He will be purpose-full once again. Don't think I let him be idle. That just ain't in my DNA. I have a list longer than both of my arms. Unfortunately, most of it requires power tools and outside working. Kinda hard to do in a wet dreary winter. rats.

What have I been doing besides schmoozing with the little guys? I have tried to sew. Honest! I've been busy working on COC's (for those newer ones here, those are circle of comfort quilts which we have a group right here on the forum - we make and send quilts all over the place for those who need a quilty hug). I made a bunch up last year thanks to my sweet COC groupies. I would have to pull up my calendar again and peek but it was over 40.

I have also been working on various gifts. As usual my photo skills are abundantly lacking. I only have a few pics I took last year.

Hopefully I won't be ousted again! I really don't know what in the world happened. But then I have heard that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Throw in there fits of aggravation and voila! You have me. Love y'all. Missed you like a Mary Poppins would miss her umbrella.

I know you won't believe this Blondie but this morning as I was getting myself moving about the kitchen, feeding the cat, throwing in some laundry, etc. I was wondering how you and your family were doing and then I come here and POOF, here you are!! So happy to see you. Love those pix of your grandbabies. Aren't they wonderful. Our Zeke is 14 months already. I got to visit with him three times last year and they are planning a trip in this direction this June. Our other grands are doing fine and growing like weeds.

So happy to hear Mom is doing well. Sorry dh is a bit blue about being retired. I am hoping to join the ranks of retired in July and I don't think I'll be depressed. :)

Have a wonderful day friend and welcome back. You have been missed.

Well, I joined in 2016, but was soooo overwhelmed by the site. Never did anything like this before. I just popped in and out for about a year. I was trying to read every post from the beginning of time till present.......finally gave up and just took a leap of faith and jumped in.....I've never regretted it and haven't looked back! Love it here! Happy days!

Oh, Blondie! How great to see you back! Happy Dance! Believe it or not, I was thinking about you just before I logged on this a.m., wondering if anyone had heard any updates from you lately. And there you were! So glad you're back. Beautiful pics of the grand kids. You're so fortunate to have them close by. Our family is spread out all over the US & we hardly ever see any of them. DH is unable to travel, & I can't go anywhere now that I'm his caregiver.

I only have a min. Time to fix DH's breakfast. I'll be cooking a pot of Anasazi beans for him today. I need to make a run to the groc. store & the post office. Finally! Got the wildlife quilt finished yest. eve. It just needs a label. I'll try to get pics later today when it warms up & I can do pics outside. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Gotta go.

Now you KNOW I told you to say nice things about me when I couldn't get in. My, my my. How quickly and conventiently we forget!
Thanks for helping me out. Took a little longer than we thought but hey, Al really IS Bill Nye. I like to think of him as my imaginary third son.
Still tiptoeing around in here. sshhh!

Super day for us with Blondie posting with all her news, thanks to Al as we've been missing you a ton. Your DGrands are beautiful, Eleanor has your hair, Blondie the 2nd. Gene & I were ailing a bit last year but this year was been OK so far. I have 7 great grandboys, ages 7 to 1 with another baby due in a month. Don't see them much as they are also spread out around the country, CA, LA & NC. Have a great day and keep on posting, we love it.

I was just getting to know you when you left us. I was glad for you to go spend time with the grand children and maybe even a little jealous. I was still working. NOw that I have retired, I have more time for my Shriners project and my forum friends but the GC's are still 200 miles away. Glad you're back and will look forward to your posts.
Welcome back!!! My, how Elenor has grown. What a beautiful little girl. And 2 boys to love on too. Glad to hear Mom is doing good. I wonder about her often.
Don't be such a stranger anymore, we all missed that smiling face and morning stories.

It is SO SO SEW good to see each of you! Gosh what a sight for lonely, sore eyes. I will be checking back in later. It's a bit dreary and rainy, but I am about to make my own sunshine.
It's called "grammy time with the boys". Then DIL (Billie) and I are gonna make a run to a local thrift that has a double stroller with my name on it. Huzzah! More smiles and hugs for each of my dear ones here.

Welcome back! Your gk are so adorable and I am jealous, it sounds like you see them every day!! Missed your stories and your happy cheerfulness. Your dh will be so used to retirement by September he won't wanna go back, keep cranking on those honey do lists for him and the time will just fly by. I am so sick of winter, snow and cold here in the midwest, I hope you are right and spring is just around the corner. I am so ready.

Welcome Blondie. I am a few years new to the forum and quilting since 2015 and love the inspiration.

Looks like you are busy person, grandma and quilter. Grandkids do keep us busy. I only had one when I retired in 2013, now I have 5 and another due in September. All under 6, and they all live nearby.

Welcome back.

BTW, I have learned Big Stitch quilting, partly because of your hand quilting. Welcome back!

It's good to see you again! MM is a recipient of one of your wonderful COC quilts and with all the medical problems he has had this past year, it has gone to urgent care with us often...it really does give him a sense of comfort, so thank you again!

Congrats on the new grandboy! MM always says our grandkids are our reward for not killing our children!

I know you won't believe this Blondie but this morning as I was getting myself moving about the kitchen, feeding the cat, throwing in some laundry, etc. I was wondering how you and your family were doing and then I come here and POOF, here you are!! So happy to see you. Love those pix of your grandbabies. Aren't they wonderful. Our Zeke is 14 months already. I got to visit with him three times last year and they are planning a trip in this direction this June. Our other grands are doing fine and growing like weeds.

So happy to hear Mom is doing well. Sorry dh is a bit blue about being retired. I am hoping to join the ranks of retired in July and I don't think I'll be depressed. :)

Have a wonderful day friend and welcome back. You have been missed.


I believe it because I was thinking about her too!

Good to see you back and glad to hear Mom is doing well :-)!

I have never been so thrilled to read a post in my entire life. Was just telling DH how badly I needed a Blondie fix, and needed to call. I am so happy you are back, and the wonderful new peeps here will get know what a special gal you are. Welcome back my super duper special friend. I will be glad to get back to quilting now that my spring shows are coming to en end. We do however, need to have a long jaw on the phone. Love you millions, and so good to see your smiling face.

Yes, we do need some catch up time. I want to hear all about the shows, too. I kinda miss doing them. We just don't have good shows in this area any longer. lucky you!
