I try to answer everyone that leaves a comment with a personal reply, but some do not have email addresses and many times I forget to reply here.

Kathy: I used to go to a shop in Oregon owned by Holly, is that your sister? There is currently a shop in Oregon called Stitches in Time owned by Elaine Hanna. Its a lot of hand dyes and leans more toward art quilts and brights, I think. Not the usual dark country stuff I love anyway. She's a nice lady though, and also offers some yarns and some classes on spinning wool in addition to quilty stuff.
There's no quilt shop in Byron, I don't know about Grand Detour. There's one in Pecatonica that I like, a couple in Rockford, and my favorite is in Pearl City. There's one in New Milford -- but only been there once and the owner is quite impressed with herself :-) - have no intention of going back.

Sharon: I think it was the camera angle and he is also holding one foot with his hand! I did notice that Will's feet do look big -- and I don't think the same rule applies to humans that it does in dogs! vbg

To everyone else -- Thanks!

Today saw no quilting either. I ran errands, talked on the phone to my DSIL -- Bill's other sister is in the hospital in Chicago -- very serious problems with arteries in her stomach/legs.
Also talked to DD today -- we'll be seeing her and the kids tomorrow and taking them to the Burpee Museum in Rockford to see our famous "Jane" the teenage T-Rex, and the Discovery Center -- should keep the older two busy for a few hours while Grandma and Grandpa get holding time with Will!

Jean is holding her own and we have a system for passing the word to the rest of the family in place.
Conversation with Steph.
Seeing the grandkids tomorrow.

My sister was friends with Holly. My sister's shop was Heart in Hand. She opened the shop in Conover Square but moved to a larger location on 3rd St. across from the courthouse. She converted the 2nd story of the building to an apartment for her and her 2 sons.

I'm sorry I didn't leave you an e-mail address. I assumed that since I logged in with my gmail.com address, you could respond to it. kporter121887 at gmail dot com
