    Carrie...how pretty. It looks so nice on it's new home too!
    Dubib...do you collect vintage machines? I sometimes think that I would like to get a treadle like I learned to sew on.

    Stories of near misses on the road--DSIL had a little plaque in her Chevy Chevette (remember those little box cars?) "God is only a whisper away." I think of that often when crisis come upon us. Carrie, I understand the dilemma "which way home should I go?" We live down in the valley and the only way out is up. Snow covered roads are always a challenge. Love my front wheel drive just for that reason.
    Carrie the quilt is gorgeous--borders really bring out the blocks. Isn't it nice to see at least completed quilt on this "what's the name of the thread, now?"
    Angel food cake all gone so no left overs. Oh and I fell off the fabric moratorium band wagon, but I had to have some fabric to finish that quilt and then there were these neat moderns my DD would love as a purse and......
    Get that new motor running, dublb.
    Oh and time for a nap as I did bookwork too late last night.
    Don't worry spider.

    QNSue ... Please be careful with the heat lamps. They do a good job, but are so dangerous!

    Anael ... oh I knew you didn';t ahve them joined. I just want to see the final one when you get there! Did you use your signature white and bright clear colours with it? I'm sure you know that I'd like dark green (my FWS).

    CarrieM ... Congratulations!! I really like that background colour (peachy beige?). It really sets off the blocks so they shine forth. It looks so at home in it's home!

    DublB ... Looks like you have another project on the go ... how about some WD40 to free things up?

    OKSGlad ... I've been thinking the same as you that the name of the thread does not really represent what is here. Hurrah for new fabric!!!!!

    Honchey ... Is it possible to start a new thread to keep just for the completions, much like our FWS thread. I go back to it so often and it'd be hopeless in this one to find any quilts! Sorry Ladies! Thanks for the JanRN update ... so easy to be under the weather with the weather the way it's been. So many people with bugs right now.

    Yes, QuiltE, we did have a fire in our shed due to a heat lamp a year or two ago..the whole volunteer fire department with its seven trucks was here in less than 11 minutes. Chickens scratched straw up into the low heat lamp, and it started the fire on a Sunday morning just after 12 o'clock...neighbor spotted it and called the fire department who thought the house was on fire!....First question, did we have it wired for electricity?? 'cause fire follows electrical lines. Chickens all flew the coop, neighbor got all gasoline cans out of the shed,(before he knocked on our door) and most of the machines with tires on them, two wheels did catch on fire and was rolled out of the shed...top of the shed is black, but did not burn down. Really created a whole new entertainment for our little village. Now dh is wiser and he wires it to the top of the dog run, well above the guineas heads. Ducks do not have a heat lamp.

    I like our thread the way it is; sorry. To go back in time and read everything again, is a journey through time and our lives and good eating with recipes...all rolled into one. It is just like a 200 page book. A book that I would buy in a New York minute. Create your own table of contents and index...on a snowy or rainy afternoon.

    Hope JanRN gets to feeling better real soon!!

    GG - I didn't start out ta collect machines but yes I do seem ta be collectin' 'em. I think I have about 15 or 16 machines. 5 o' 'em are a bit modern. Oops 6 if ya count the embroidery machine.
    OK I had the motor runnin before I left the store. The motor's on 401A's are internal & I didn't want ta deal w/replacin' that.
    Oh
    Sue that sounds scary. I'm glad that ya have the lamp set up right, now. Here's hopin' that ya stay warm through this weather & that it blows over real soon.
    QE - WD40 is bad for sewin' machines. It evaporates too quickly & then ya git rust. Yuck! Yes sewin' machine oil evaporates but it takes about a year. I do oil all my machines more than once a year though. W TX dust & sand need ta cleaned out much more often than that. 3 in 1 oil is bad & gums up a sewin' machine. If ya have a newer machine w/plastic gears 3 in 1 oil will eat up those plastic gears. Ask me how I know. I still take my machines ta my sewin' machine guy if I can't git 'em goin'. (I have no idea how ta set the timin' on one o' these or sometimes there is just somethin' that is just a bit off & I can't find it.) My Guy is cheap though. $45 ta $90. I've never actually paid $90 but have seen that price tag on one o' the machines sittin' in his shop. I did git the stitch selector unstuck by late th'safternoon. The part that holds the feeddog cover plate is movin' now. Not too easily, but it is movin'. Tamarrow I'll put it all tagether & actually sew on it.
    Oops it looks like I wrote a book again.

    Honchey - tell Jan that we are prayin for her ta git better soon.
