Write about 5 quilters who have influenced your “quilting world” and how they did so. These do not have to be “famous people”. They can be anyone who influenced you attitude towards quilting.

1.  Ramona Andersen, my mother, began piecing a couple quilt tops in the seventies and when a block in Family Circle caught my eye she and my sister helped me put together fabrics from her scraps for thirty blocks.  I was hooked.

2.  All the ladies of the Lincoln Quilters Guild.  In 1983 I began learning by leaps and bounds from the example of the talented quilters there.   I took most of the workshops offered and sampled many techniques over the two decades that I was a member.

3.  Jo Baxter, in particular, mentored me in the LQG and encouraged me to be active in the nuts and bolts of the Guild.

4.  I particularly liked Mary Ellen Hopkins' attitudes and suggestions for quilters; author of It's Okay if You Sit on My Quilt books.  She was a stand up comedienne who happened to be a quilter and I had the pleasure of attending her programs at least four times, perhaps many as six.  Details elude me.

5.  Paula Nadelstern - I took a workshop many years ago and put together several 'sets'.  I've been collecting fabrics for a decade with this technique in mind and eventually I'll get my sewing room in order and resume practicing more of these.

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicise the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of, and colour (or underline) the items you'd like to add to your kitchen arsenal:

I wonder how many... pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, hand-held immersion blenders, stand blenders, stand mixers, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese knives, cheese domes, electric woks, salad spinners, griddle pans, jam funnels, meat thermometers, filleting knives, cleavers, mortar & pestles, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic presses, garlic keeper jars, margarita glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, pizza peels, coffee (spice) grinders, milk frothers , piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers , waffle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers, sukiyaki stoves, food processors, ice cream makers, takoyaki makers, fondue sets, soda water chargers, and mandolines ...languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

I've got something somewhat less well known, an aebleskiver pan... Actually I have three of 'em in order to really crank 'em out.  Unfortunately the past 24 years we had a stove we couldn't use the pans on.  That will change when the renovation is completed and we finally have a gas stove.  I'll be able to use the pressure cooker again, too.

That'a hard but here's my try:
1. I envision things to create and sometimes carry them through.
2. I listen and react to others with an open mind.
3. I make commitments judiciously so I can honor my commitments.
4. I am thrifty of my envirionment and generous with my resources.
5. I endevour to be generous with myself, modestly.

Color Test   These are the things we're supposed to do to remove the cholesterol around our brain and try to slow up Alzheimer's Disease...  It took me 2 times before I could finally tell this brain of mine to concentrate.  A great test, do it until you get 100%!
Bet you can't get 100% on the first try!  But I'm rootin' for ya....
This is pretty neat!  See how you do with the colors!  Have fun!
It takes an average of 5 tries to get to 100%.  Follow the directions!
It's harder than it seems, as it should be!
A brain waker-upper for today!
