    I just realized something else "JimsQueenie"...if your forum name means that you are the queen (wife) of a guy named Jim...then so am I!! Although I have always called him James - his family and friends call him Jimmy - because his dad is Jim.

    What?!!? You are Vicki Lee too?? That is crazy! Did you hear all the time that your name sounds like a country singer? LOL I use to get that a lot, but I guess if you didn't go around telling everyone your middle name they might not have made the connection. Whenever a new teacher would take attendance and say my name for the first time - I'd get the country singer-line. haha

    You are right about the quilters - especially the ones on this forum. They have been nothing but kind and helpful and encouraging of all the newbies. I need to stop worrying and just quilt. I am getting impatient with myself for not having more to show, but I can literally only sew for a couple of hours on Saturday because I'm using my mom's machine at her house. Mine (I have two!) are in storage in another state while we try to sell our house and move (completely) to our new place.

    Anyway - Vicki Lee (ha!) I look forward to seeing you around the forum!

    It's really "Vicki" - my mom thought Victoria was too long for my very short last name (Lee) - although it doesn't sound so bad with my married name. LOL. I am looking forward to the Secret Santa swap - but a little nervous too. Being a new quilter and new to the forum - I hope whoever my person is likes what I'm planning. I'm doing a mix of a couple of small items I made - something "quilty" for them to make, and non sewing crafty thing I like to do. Don't want to get too specific in case I get you! LOL Between this and my first "Mug Rug" swap - I'm just a ball of nervous energy.

    Hi Vicki! Just saw your "About You" post on the mini 2013 Secret Santa and I just wanted to say hi to another Vicki that spells her name "right". LOL.

    Hi Vicki, I've been MIA for some time too, and I'm sorry. Changes in life, but things are calm these days. I'm back to quilting, and am trying to get some of my UFO's finished. Several quilts just need quilted; I'd love to have them machine quilted, but it is too expensive for my purse, so I'm going to quilt them on my home machine. In the future I think I'll make smaller projects, they're easier to quilt on my home machine.

    How are you doing these days? Lots of quilting in Badger, IA? We folks in Perry were saddened by the closing of the Hotel Pattee, we don't need to loose any more businesses. I was glad a new bike shop opened up in town recently, I don't buy much there, but they are good at fixing my flat tires

    Hi Vicki,
    Sorry for not responding to your message sooner. I have been MIA from here for quite some months now.
    'Life stuff' sometimes gets in the way of 'fun stuff'.
    Anyway, in answer to your question regarding the BOM blocks...most are completed, just not photographed and posted.
    I promise to get this done real soon and will let you know.
    Thanks so much for your kind comments on my blocks.

    OMG>>> NINETY STORES! I would be pooped after 10! I can't believe your guy was so into it. How lucky for you. My guy is only interested if it involves things that go BANG! or TOOLS. Glad you had a great vacation and it's great to have you back.

About JimsQueenie

Basic Information

About JimsQueenie
My name is Vicki Robles and I was born in Seattle, WA. My dad was transferred to the Bay Area of CA when I was just starting high school. In 1980 I met my husband and we were married in 1982. I was in a serious car accident in the mountains where we lived in 1984 and began hand piecing tops. Couldn't wait to get to a sewing machine which happened in 1992. I have been quilting, slowly, ever since and I love it!! Love the piecing the most. And, taking classes! I would love to meet new friends here who have the same interest. My husband retired from the CA fire dept. after 37 years--bless his heart and helps me whenever I need it. He almost knows how to piece himself!! LOL
