    I just got a phonecall from my DS. One of the ICU nurses who was there when Bram and Isa came in was there today too. She had been off for a few days so she hadn't seen them. She was surprised they both were still there and she said they were looking better compared to the day they were born! So that's good to hear. Isa's bloodpressure meds went down a tiny bit and both started breathing just a bit better. We're all happy with this news! Tomorrow night they will be 7 days old. Let's hope the phone will not ring!!!

    Oh great news on the babies Anael! Thanks for the updates, I always look forward to hearing about their progress! And, they are progressing little by little. My prayers are ongoing for their survival!

    Oh Anael ... you just sent tears running down my cheeks! Happy First Week Birthday ... almost! They have a long and windy road ahead. And each day it's another celebration. I loved the photos today and kept thinking about my friend who had one about the same size. If your DDIL/DS have not done so yet, suggest they get a picture of the babies hands against their hand/thumb. It really puts in all in perspective as to their minuesque size! The pics you shared with us ... just like pics of our Mini Quilts, until you have something to compare it to, you have no idea how SMALL they really are! Sorry, I can;t help you with your magazine request.

    try battings. Also, bamboo. So hesitant about the wool, as it's pretty costly and I don;t want to regret it!

    GGal ... another wall baster in our PC group! I'm feeling better about it, after seeing DublB's video with Patsy Thompson. Not sure if I'd do it on the regular wall, or use my design wall, as then I could pin to it. Do you think I could do the baby quilt easy enough, without an extra pair of hands?

    QNSue ... yeehaw?!!!!!!!!! BBs done and ready for the mail! And yeaaaa .. now onwards to sashing, etc! How kind of you to do the major repair job plus a new quilt for AIL! That is so fun about your camera coming back .... seven years later! Interesting that they all of a sudden found it. Good sleuthing on their part to figure out it was yours. Any surprise memories in seeing the pics? I've looked at that board method for basting you mentioned, though I have even more hesitations with it than the wall basting ... I have visions of me with these boards flipping around like toothpicks flying thru the air!

    DDamsel ... thanks for the extra thoughts on this batting issue. There won't be any fleece or minkie this time! When you say cotton batting ... are you using W+N or flannelette? One layer of flannelette? or two?

    JeanieG ... you got me thinking that maybe DDamsel was not meaning W+N but the flannelette. I have a bed quilt that I had the Amish ladies use flannelette for the batting. It's nice and light and very pliable for wrapping. ITA W+N can be heavy ... though perhaps not all that heavy being that the size is small?

    Speaking of which ........... Anael ... are you going to make a couple of preemie quilts? .... You could use orphan blocks as one could easily make a full quilt! OK, perhaps add a small border!

    Every day they just get stronger Anael. A hug in return.

    I sandwich on a double bed or the dining room table and use spray batting or if I'm really particular will take the time to baste. I machine quilt on my DSM. Once the floor worked so well but alas no more.
    Batting--usually W&N for quilts; but have enough wool batting for 3 large quilts that I'm just dying to use. Must finish some UFO's before I use it.

    FYI 2 little quilts done and the 3rd ready to quilt--off I go! And then start on the BB's oh a lasagna supper and then a BD party for GD Elise on Sunday-then BB's.

    I don't think the nurses will be very pleased if my DS or DDIL is trying to make such a picture. We have this one though (this is Bram) :

    What's a preemie quilt? What do you do with them?

    QuiltE...I do it on my design wall because then I can use safety pins for anchoring. The sheet is to protect the design wall. Wool probably would not be ideal for a baby quilt since it would need frequent washings and the wool shrinks and felts if it is tumbled and dried frequently. Ask me how I know! My DD gave me a washable wool quilt and I didn't know I shouldn't tumble dry them. It's now very felted, much smaller but still a very warm blanket.
    Anael...what a testimony to the twins that the nurse was surprised they were still here! Happy 7 day!!!
    OK...I had one of my quilts done with as wool batting and it does give a different look and I'm surprised by how quickly the bed warms up at night....our bedroom is cold and the sheets are colder.
    QNSue...Sharon Schamburger has videos on YouTube demonstrating the method you described.

    Oooo!! I love the pict o' the precious one. Another miracle day.

    I use wool in all o' my baby blankets. Everyone who gits one is given washin' instructions. Wash on delicate & hang ta dry. Not one has ever not followed my instructions. (They all know me & believe me when I tell 'em how ta care for a quilt.)

    According to what I have been told, grandparents carried me around on a pillow for two years....that was back in the dark ages. I slept across my gm breast of a night; I had nights mixed up with days...screamed most of the time developing lung power. (Boy, did I!!! My bras are over the shoulder boulder holders!! A former staff member 'told' me about breast reduction!) A baby here in the USA has to weight 5 pounds to leave the hospital today. Lots of TLC, getting them used to your voice all helps, I am told. Modern tech gives them the edge to gain, grow, and become stronger compared with my time back in the dark ages.

    Every new day needs a celebration...seize the moment and enjoy it; a good rule for all of us walking on this earth. Virtual RV is open to all...water is hot for coffee or tea. Fresh fruit is on the counters. Hot potato soup is on the stove. Made with sweating the onions, celery, and garlic together in a bit of olive oil until onions were cooked; chicken broth added, and jowl fat drippings, and three small potatoes, chopped into small pieces. Not much left.
