E Greetings AR Friends,
 
It has been a wonderful experience “getting to know” all of you online.  I was leery of cyber-friends, at first, but we have all learned to be more careful and as a result, this wonderful quilt idea was born.  Thank you so much, Kitten.
 
We just returned from a trip to the eastern part of our great country.  I was lucky enough to have wireless Internet at each campground and could keep in touch (somewhat) for the five weeks we were gone.  The technology that has developed in my lifetime is unbelievable.   I can only imagine what’s down the road for the next generation.
 
My favorite thing to do, other than cooking, is making greetings cards using anything that can be ironed on to card stock, and embellished.   If I can find the right paper, I sometimes make the envelope for a card.  The examples here show a very few of the fabrics I’ve found that work well.  [will show examples online, one of these days; I know: promises, promises...]
 
If you ever find yourself in the southern part of New Mexico, post your location online and maybe we can meet in person.  [I so want to go to Ireland and meet the little ornery leprechaun we know and love as Trishie.]
 
Be safe, my cybernet friends, and we’ll chat on line…
 
All the best,  swchef

Very nice and you're right. There is no right or wrong. It's whatever you want to put. Good stuff.

As great as this is for today, it will be a peek into our lives generations from now. I think it is wonderful.

What size page, please? I've asked Kitten but, God love her, she's on the other side of the continent and I really need to get the page done and in the mail, like right now. I love your text; very sincere, very touching. But then, that's just how you are!

Wouldn't you know - my printer won't print! It's been really touchy for the last year so I guess it's time to bite the bullet and get a new one. Ah, technology - love it or hate it!

Nice job swchef. Were you on the exchange yesterday afternoon when this topic was brought up? I did something similar and several others are too. It will be a nice read when all this comes together for someone.

Great job. Got to get mine done soon. Still don't know what to do. Ah well, maybe today.

I'd never shoot you Deborah - and thank you for doing that! I realized after I posted it that it wasn't a wise move...so thanks for having it removed.

About Me
Married w/ pets + three kids and six grandkids. Retired after 30 years of teaching grades K-7. Moved to NM 10 years ago. Loved it there. Moved back to Ohio to be closer to family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soups. Chili, beef vegetable, ham and bean,and tortilla soups are our favs. I like casseroles - one dish dinners are the best! I think the slow cooker is about the best cooking aid in my kitchen. I love to try new recipes, that's what makes this a super website; that and all the cool contributors.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything I did with my grandmother! Thanksgiving at Grandma's house was the best. She wanted to do it all - and she was a great cook. Making taffy with her was such a treat! I remember the first time she made pizza (from a box). She wasn't too sure about pizza! But in the mid 1950's, none of us midwesterners were too sure about pizza!
My cooking triumphs
When I was 13, I entered seven different baked goods (mostly cakes) in open class at the fair, competing against adult cooks with great records. I took first place with all but one entry, which got a second place ribbon.
My cooking tragedies
Looking back over the years, my biggest tragedy was making gravy...but thanks to CindyLepp, it is no longer a challenge! She sent me packets of dry gravy mixes!
