    You all do such beautiful work. Love the veggie fabric.

    Anael, I'll check to see if I have that book. Check the Thimbleberrries website; there was a free BOM a while back that had lots of neat blocks. I don't know if it's still available--let me know.

    Would love to share a pic of some of the antiques I brought home but my camera is on it's way to San Antonio, TX, with MrJanRn for the next week or so. He has a conference there. Wonder if that's any where near Dublb?
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Here is the link to the Mirabelle fabric. I'm using the blue floral garden as the focus...3 13 inch wide strips, the green and blue floral for the patchwork strip...2 10 inch wide strips and 4 inches in the border, the blue paisley for sashing and the blue diamond damask for a 3 inch border. IRL, the blue is almost a muted slate gray. I will use the new backing on this quilt which I will do QAYG. I will finish piecing the backing for the Lone Star inbetween quilting. So far, the actual quilting is getting better but it's still not my favorite activity.
    Anael....I can get that Thimbelberries book for you through Amazon.com. Check it out and see if there are others of her books that you would like. I usually buy the used ones for myself.
    i got some garden stuff yesterday but it is raining hard today so no distractions from sewing!
    Have a great day everyone!

    Thanks, Gardengal, for the peek at the fabrics; they are beautiful.

    Thanks , Mirabelle, for defining the word I had never heard of or seen in print to my knowledge. Guess its one that junior high kids do not use in the city. Origin of words are so interesting, I think, having first taught in the 'Ozark' region where a professor studied their 'words' and published a series of books about it. Not a best seller, but very unique story of their language. On that first job, we were shown 14 different ways to 'get' out of town by the superintendent of schools himself. We were looking at one another saying, "Why do we need to know 14 ways out of town?"....interesting experience.

    May all the MBs speed along the way and arrive soon. May all the grandchildren keep everyone busy, so the time will past quicker...or incoming company. More theray planned today in the quilt room!! Everyone have a good day and celebrate this wonderful day 'cause it will not repeat itself...every moment is precious!! Enjoy life.

    San Antonio, TX is a far piece from Midland, Texas. About a long day's drive. It was a short 75 miles (about) from Corpus Christi, Tx on the Gulf Coast. Great places to visit. Lots of Latinos and Mexican over running the place and Spanish and Tex-Mex spoken there. San Antonio was having an influx of over 3000 incoming people to live there every day...with half not knowing how to speak English.. Tex-Mex is an area language around El Paso area. It took a long driving day to get from Corpus Christi to the Fort Worth and Texas - Okaloma border...about 14-16 hours of driving.

    Thank you all! The Thimbleberries website isn't up, at least I can't get there. I've seen the book on Amazon.com but the s/h is quite expensive. I always buy used books when ordering from Amazon.co.uk. so that's no problem. I'll PM you GG.
    The Mirabelle fabric is beautiful!

    QNS,

    Gobsmacked is British slang, I think. I have a friend in the UK and I picked it up from her, Mirabelle was right in her definition. Gob is Brit slang for mouth and someone who is very talkative is considered "gobby".

    I am wondering if anyone has the book/pattern for a sheep quilt. I think it is by Nancy Halvorsen and it is in a book called Star of Wonder. I really don't want to buy the book just for the one pattern as shipping is worse than the price of the book.

    I am taking QNS's advice and using my day to enjoy what I can. I will not look outside!

    Have a great day everyone.

    Oh so much to catch up on! The sun is shining--Day 2! From my office window I have a view of SFarm heifers enjoying a soak in the sun today just east of our house. At least they aren't running up the road towards "home"! I'll soon head out and see what yard work I can attempt. DH is so tired of cold and now mud. Takes extra bedding for young livestock in pens. Our heifer that was to go to PA this week on a trailer came down with a high temp. Talked to new owner and we are keeping her for another 6 weeks when they will come and pick her up. Neither party wants to risk a 4 month old heifer getting sicker.
    Janie--do you have hand projects lined up for your family care visits? (I know I have a pretty one!)
    mirabelle--been watching a NOVA special on our PBS about the formation of Australia. I really enjoy documentaries like this and gets me to sit down and hand sew while waiting for DH to come in from the barn.
    Jan--I see several have suggested good ideas for you to preserve that "perfect" block. I was thinking along the same lines. Mid century Modern huh? A great age to be. Check to see if there is "Heywood-Wakefield" mark on the bottom of the chairs. Usually that type of furniture was made with hardrock maple and HW was a well known manufacturer of fine furniture of that era. How do I know? I have my mom's HW dining table and buffet from the late 60's. If they are in good shape don't paint them. Your grand kids will thank you!
    Furniture styles--hmm When we were first married I called it EA--Early attic for that's what it was--leftovers from someone else. Should've kept that chrome table with the yellow top (was replaced by Mom's table)--someone would surely want that now to put in a retro styled kitchen with red accents.
    Anael--Oh such lovely work on the completed feather quilt! And the garden maze (?) quilt is another winner. The green border pulls it all together doesn't it? I have found that working on smaller projects the border and binding add the final zing to the whole piece. Your friend will get a kick out of the F&V quilt. Really like the circular quilting pattern you used to reinforce all the round pieces of fruits. Why won't you use school glue again?
    So fun to see everyone's projects whether PC related or not. Still waiting on my piece for the Bernina. I haven't tested the accuracy of the Janome to 1/4" seams yet QE, so have not tried to remake dublb's block or any other sewing. So what have I been doing in the meantime for sewing. Well My sister's doing a GMFG and that got me thinking that I will give that a whirl as I mentioned a while ago. Boy I'm hooked on hexi's! Got the little hexi quilt top done while watching TV, now to finish it off with batting and backing. Cutting pieces for the big blue and yellow quilt and when I get a few small scraps I reuse the freezer paper templates for little flowers. Yup I'm a goner.
    Okay out I go to the land of sunshine and a little breeze.
    Don't worry spider.
