    Life has a way of slowing us down, but not stopping us completely...Helped a friend yesterday and today and was so tired tonight when I got back home. She will visit the doctor tomorrow again, and they will decide on the operations she will face, possibly this week. And may recover at our home here after her hospital stay.

    She did load me down with batiks fabric today...more projects in the near future. How many like batik fabric here?? I find you hate them or love them. We when all the way to Lucas Quilt with us today before I took her back to her home. Fun FART trip with laughter. Better to laugh than cry according to what my grandmother said.

    Oh Honchey ... so you think you're behind? Well, there are some of us that are eating your dust!!!
    I keep wondering if I will ever get back on the trail?
    Oh yes I will ......... but ........ when? is the real question!

    It's nice to be busy for work, but sometimes I HATE that I have to work!!!
    No sewing for me in over a month now ... and I'm really starting to get antsy about THAT!!!!!!!
    Anbd it's not looking good for awhile.

    Gathering together my FWS and a few other things to take to one of the Fairs this weekend.
    Next week, another Fair ... though that means I'm gone pretty much the whole week, as I work at it.
    And when I get home each time, well there's the catching up!

    QNSue ... So sorry about your friend. Glad that despite her health issues, that you two allowed a FART "therapy session"! I'm sure that helped her immensely, to "participate" in life and not keep dwelling on the medical matters.

    I agree, I think people either love or hate batiks.
    Me? I never had much to do with them, though am really starting to appreciate them and find I'm using them more and more as I get the opportunity. I really like the multi colours/shades in them for the movement they give and yet are next thing to a plain, but not the flatness of total plain-ness. Does that make sense? And then there's the patterned ones too ... and I have the four different trillium batikss that I got in the Shop Hop this summer. My BCS Mystery quilt has a deep purple batik. And if you can remember my butter yellow mainstay in the PC blocks ... that's a batik too.

    Oh QuiltE, so good to hear from you...I was wondering when you would pop in.... I love batiks and started some blocks about 10 years ago ...I look at them every once in awhile...I had a hard time piecing them ...I didn't have a 1/4 foot for the machine I was sewing on and it was very discouraging..so I put them aside..I'll get to them someday...

    So sorry to hear of your friends problems QNS and I am sure your friendship means a lot to both of you.
    Welcome back QuiltE its nice to hear from you, a bit like FWS blocks, a few at a time and you will rope those PC blocks in and finish them.
    I have an extra large collection of batiks, washed and pressed everyone of them (they looked so pretty on the clothes line) but haven't yet found a quilt I want to make with them. I am seriously considering the New York Beauty that is starting in October (if I can get some UFO's out of the way). My collection is mainly fat quarters of fat eighths a few Bali Pops and a few large pieces..
    Time to cook dinner, Beef Stroganoff tonight.

    I have made one quilt with all batiks and in the D9P w/a Twist quilt the yellow was a batik. I really like batiks, but just haven't had opportunity to yet. I just started "Rosie" (pp'ing quilt) and will use all batiks for that...get to buy some more fabric tomorrow on the way to the retreat.

    I am really looking forward to getting lots of PC blocks done this weekend! I am taking my laptop and camera, so might even be able to post pictures of my progress.

    Good to hear from you, QE. I've worked extra the past few weeks and wish I didn't have to; it gets in the way of sewing.
    Like Carriem, I'm doing the Quilts for Rosie in all batiks. Other than FWS and PC, I only work in batiks right now. Here's an interesting one I made; just needs quilted but I can't decide what to do on it. Any suggestions?Name:  Sundial.jpg

    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.

    Thanks Honchey for the welcome back ... even if I'm not really back, it's nice to be here for a spell!

    MiraB ... thanks for the encouragement. I know I will get them done, though I am disappointed that I haven't been able to stay with everyone. I knew what I missed in FWS and was why I joined the PC as I wanted SO much to be apart of the ride this time and do it WITH everyone and all the chitter-chatter. Oh well, such is life!

    CarrieM ... D9P with a Twist ... I'm curious? Photo please? Is this the retreat that GGal and Jenniky are going on too? Have FUN Ladies!

    Popular retreat weekend as I believe MiraB and DublB are heading off too!

    JanRN ... alas! you are showing us yoru decadron. It's absolutely wonderful! As for the how to quilt, as I am starting to do more machine quilting, I am ever-so hesitant as to what to do and how to do it! So I'm not much help, but I really really do like it ... the colours are fantastic and your work is incredible! As for that four letter word of WORK ... maybe you should just become a lady of leisure and allow yourself to quilt full time?

    QuiltE...welcome back! You have been missed.
    QNSue, thinking of you and your friend today. I hope her surgery is successful. Sounds like a lot to do at one time but better than having 3 separate ones. I've done a quilt with batiks and Fairy Frost and it turned out beautiful. Batiks are a little different to work with but the results can be amazing.
    JanRN..I don't have any suggestions, this is where I get stumped too, but your quilt is stunning. Great job.
    Carrie...looking forward to seeing you IRL. What a treat.
    Mirabelle...can't wait to see how far you get with the Jamestown Celebration. That's a lot of HST!
    Here is a sample of the FWS I did yesterday. Luckily I got 5 done in one day since there were a couple of easier ones. I have some 6 inch orphan blocks I will use for some of the PP blocks so I have about 10 more to do and I will be able to start QAYG! YEA. I found though that I really love the 6 inch block so this probably won't be my last quilt with small blocks.Name:  photo-44.JPG
