History Quilter Podcast Episode 22 Life Changes

Happy Saturday to all,

I've just uploaded History Quilter Podcast Episode 22 Life Changes to Podbean and hopefully iTunes will have it shortly.

Here are a few photos of things I spoke about:
My garden - about to plant cauliflower, cabbage, more tomatoes, lettuce and spinach.
My "back 40" - approximately 15' x 20'
Block 10 of the Sew Happy Quilt QAL
HST Diamond 12"x 12"
One last photo of School Yard held up by younger son.  Silly boy. 

If you are interested in how I cooked the fish tacos I spoke about let me know and I'll either write a blogpost or send you an email.

Felt good to record this podcast - hope you enjoy,
Susan

  1. Fish Tacos! Haven't even listened yet and I know I will be interested in the recipe. Fish tacos are some of my all time favorites. (I think I am addicted to tacos of all kinds) LOL

  2. I have been listening to this last podcast and I enjoyed it. I skipped from #5 to this one, so I can catch up and also be current.
    The more I listen to them the more I want to be your next door neighbor. :) You sound like such a fun person.
    I am not usually a fan of fish but I like halibut so this might be a good recipe for me to try.
    It was so nice to hear to share such sweet memories of your dad.
    Do you make your own hot chocolate?
    Also, would you be willing to post (or send me) a list of a few of the quilting podcasts you listen to?

  3. Every time you say, "I have a lemon tree", I grimace just a tad. Cannot even comprehend how great that would be! ;-)
    And the fish tacos sound lovely...and guess who has halibut in the freezer? yay.
    Loved hearing you talk about your dad - precious times. Thanks for sharing from your heart....
    And congrats on the finished quilt. I bet your friend is thrilled!! Great podcast - really enjoyed it.

  4. Your QAL quilt is going to be so pretty, just love the colors you chose! Btw, your podcast is still not up on iTunes. I'm pacing the floor, because you have turned me into a podcast addict. Lol!

  6. Your garden looks so neat! Mine is still a mess from last fall. I would love to hear more about the fish tacos, too. I'm in need of some tasty meals for the next few Fridays and fish sticks just aren't cutting it!

  7. Hi Susan, I've just listened to your podcast. I haven't lost a parent so I can't say I know what you're going through. But I am so sorry for your loss. Your podcast makes me think I should get busy and call my mom. I'm glad you have school and your garden to give you a positive focus. Up here in BC it is raining, raining, and raining and not very warm so my garden is a long way from looking like yours. I'd love to read the fish taco recipe. I heard it but having it written down will help! Wonder if it would work with salmon? My hubby is a salmon fisherman so we always have it in the freezer.M y kids aren't big fish fans, but my son is a real taco nut so...Take care of yourself,
    Heather

  9. Hi Susan,

    I listened to your podcast this AM and get all the feelings you are talking about with your Dad. I am awed and humbled at how much time and care you gave to both your parents. I hope I can do as well when and if the time comes with my Mom [Dad went suddenly, five years ago.]

    Thanks for sharing about going to your long-arm quilter. I do not machine quilt anything but table runners; everything else goes to a lovely-mother daughter duo in Manassas, VA. We talk about how the Gammill will transform my tops, they work their magic and I feel wonderfully fulfilled hand-sewing the binding on the back [yes, I have them machine sew the binding to the front.] Even if I had the time and money for a long-arm machine, I think I would be too overwhelmed to use it.

    I am also enjoying your journey to teaching history. My Dad was a history buff and would tell us about history on trips to school. It must have rubbed off; 5 of 7 of us kids got a History Degree of some sort [the other two are a Nurse and an Architect, so they couldn't quite fit in the History degree.] Do you listen to History Podcasts too?

  11. Susan,
    Thank you for all of the warm thoughts and memories of your dad. I am entering the role of caregiver for my mom and it is something I am struggling with a bit so it really helped me to hear what a positive experience it has been for you. You show a wonderful strength of character and generosity of spirit.

    I have made two yoga mat bags with the Amy Butler pattern. They went together quickly and easily but make sure you pin a lot when putting the circle on the end.

    Love your podcast. Please continue!
    Brenda

  12. I enjoyed your latest podcast and heartfelt sentiments towards your father. After losing my father about three years ago, I still keep his cell phone number in my directory. When I scroll past his name, I remember all the good conversations we had with each other. I plan on leaving it there, as a warm reminder.

  13. I also felt your beautiful tribute to your father was wonderful to hear. I didn't have this kind of relationship with my dad, but still and all, your dad is your dad. Whenever I see pictures of Bozeman I feel some kind of connection - he lived there for many years. I can only imagine your kind of dad connection and it sounds heavenly.

    My daughter went to your university as a studio art major so I was loved hearing about you taking pictures of your quilt around the art department. Go You Susan!
