SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION - SURPRISE, IT'S A BOY!

Posted by Georgene Caulder on

April 2017 - As I mentioned in my last blog, I'm originally from Chicago proper.  Luckily I have friends and family still living in the general vicinity, Elk Grove, Arlington Heights, Carrol Stream, Woodstock etc.  When we are in town, we try to touch base with as many family members and friends as possible.  My Uncle Frank was living in Carrol Stream at the time and his health was failing so Dave and I made a point of going to visit him.  I could have sworn he was in such a bad way that he would be unable to recognize or...

SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION - Dinner with new friends can be very interesting!

Posted by Georgene Caulder on

My last post dealt with the fun events we encountered while attending a quilt show at the IX Center in Cleveland, Ohio.  It turns out that show was so eventful, I couldn't fit it all the excitement in one issue.   The booth located right next to ours at the show was the Vivilux booth manned by the owner Dave Riba and his wife Abby.  (In order to avoid confusion, I will call my husband Dave, and I will call Dave Riba, "Riba").  We were fairly new to the show circuit and had never had the pleasure of meeting Riba or Abby prior...
