    OkSewGlad...how nice you had such a nice visit with your sister and the rest of your family. Isn't it something that little ones can pick up on how people are feeling?

    QNSue...maybe your family isn't as compatible as others but you do still share time together. Take what you can get and enjoy what you can.

    OK - it sounds like ya had a great time!
    Sue - Some people in my family git along great & some don't. One o' my Sisters & I git aling when she wants somethin'. I know that I have ta have plans, or she will try ta git me ta do more that I already said I would. (Boy that was a tongue twister!) Right now I'm helpin' her DGSon ta read. She brings him over & almost every mornin'. As I said, I have ta have plans or she will try ta git me ta do other things after he & I are through. She acts like It is my responsibility ta take care o' her. I do love my great nephew & want him ta do well in school. (His teachers wanted ta hold him back but his DM wanted ta do something else.) They looked into Sylvan but could not afford that. At first they did nothin'. When DSis became jobless she started takin' care o' him for the rest o' the summer. He did not respond well ta her teachin' him ta read. I believe if that he gits a good teacher he will do well in first grade now.

    Yes, You have to use the crayons or colored pencils for this one....The other problem I had doing this Pig's Tail was handling the block itself...I taped the two sections together and that made the block one piece...I guess I have small hands...had to fold over the corners when sewing.. I just finished North Star and didn't mirror image the pattern and now it's backwards...oh well...at least it's done...

    Anne, I had a senior blonde moment when I first started Pig's Tail. Couldn't figure out why there was such a large center seam allowance. Well, duh--it needed taped together!
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.

    Ok I checked the next few blocks, what is the Pigs tail block. Am I having a Alley Zeimer moment. Or have I missed something which is on the cards.
    QNS a relationship is what YOU make it not what everyone says it should be. Congratulations on 46 years, that should be a celebration of two people who have found what works for them.
    Now I am off to do some cooking, visitors tomorrow. My friends are coming to check out the sewing room. Guess what !!!! it is messy at the moment (just a little) but I am trying to organise myself for a retreat I am going on in 3 weeks. Trying to decide what to take is a pain as I like to have everything cut and ready for sewing.

    Well , the day is drawing to a close...we played cards seriously, relaxed to enjoy the meal when the cousin got a phone call saying his brother was back in a Des Moines Hospital after an operation four or five days ago. So dh's aunt was very concerned until about four o'clock when they got word he was being sent home.

    They loved the quilts, so we compromised and they took them home with them. No picnic or party to let anyone sign dh aunt's quilt. I try not to judge, just go with the flow 'cause they are "my relation by marriage". Life is short not in live in peace with one another. Dh aunt got tears in her eyes from the gifting and that was pay enough for me. I did insist on the cousin's wife learning the story of the quilt...and the cousin said it was going on their bed.

    Nope, I have done any more on our PC blocks, just looked at them; dh and I will rebuild shelving in the quilt room tomorrow, so I can get more boxes off of the floor. And see if I can make three or four more quilts in September.

    Duh I found Pigs Tail, just had to look a little further. I am only worrying about next weeks blocks..... not what is coming up.
    Now to decide what to take to retreat
    1. Pony Club blocks (might get ahead)
    2. Sylvia's Bridal Sampler (might just get motivated, have 6 blocks made)
    3. Bonnie Hunter's Jamestown Landing, it was in an Australian magazine and is now in her new book, raided the stash for this one
    4. Started Pam Bono's Out of the Darkness quilt yesterday (just cause I thought that was a good idea)
    5. Put together my daughers Orchid quilt oops can't do that as she is coming with me and that quilt is a surprise.
    6. Start making sons new black and cream star quilt for his new home

    What to take oh my goodness why do we start so many, talk about children having short attention spans the professional should talk to quilters

    With everything else in my life I either do one thing & finish it, or I don't even start it, but with quiltin' I'm a totally different person.

    I was looking for another pattern and found this one in my saved stuff...might be an easier way to make "pig's tail": http://www.scribd.com/doc/56063419/Q...-LeavenworthKS

    This block finishes at 12" so you'd have to do some math, but looks like it would go together pretty easy...scroll down the pattern to see how the block is assembled.

    Mirabelle--I know what you mean about having lots of projects started!

    I have a retreat in September and at that one I am definitely working on PC blocks...doubt that I will catch up (I only have 30 done), but should be able to get several done as all the paper and fabrics are cut. Crystal (who has checked in a couple times on the QB) and I are going together so we can motivate each other.

    I have another retreat in October. That one I haven't decided what I want to work on yet for sure. Will take PC along, but I am thinking about taking another quilt too. I found the fabric for an EASY pattern to do in a couple days especially if I had the strips pre-cut. I altered it to make it a bigger lap quilt: http://www.daisyjanie.com/PS_fullpag...adderTilly.pdf

    Of course there are other UFOs too, but sometimes it is just so much fun to start something new.

    It's multitasking, Mirabelle, when we chose to start various projects...anyone who has a dh and kids has learned how to do that. It keeps our interest going, fits our creative, artistic mood, and challenges us with a new thought.

    What is it that QuiltE said...."all quilters were certifiable because we cut fabric into little pieces, and sew them together again"..it keeps us happy!!
