    Honchey, it's not a MB block, it's one of the Ode to my Mom blocks. This is block # 9 Diamond Lily.

    Honchey--sorry to hear about your tooth! Nice "haul" though yesterday. Do you use your Go cutter a lot? I have a big shot that I got for card making and know that I could use some of the Go dies in that if I wanted to. What are your favorite ones?

    OK--so far in the past 24 hrs we've had 4" of rain. We're going to go look at the river after done with school this morning...you can see it from our back deck through the trees, but can't get a good idea of how high it actually is.

    Dublb--if we could send the rain that way we would! We needed it last year, but it is coming down too fast right now to do much good. Wonder how this summer will be??

    Jan--You will feel more like sewing in a clean room...I know I do! I agree having a deadline always helps me to get things done in a reasonable time. That is why I have set the goal to finish one UFO a month. If you need shorter goals maybe break it down into parts (cutting, piecing, quilting, binding). So far this year I have finished a quilt a month plus a couple small things (purse, runners, etc) too. The UFO quilts were ones that the blocks were done, so it was just assembly...as I get further into the year some may take more than a month to finish...we'll see.

    Anael--another very pretty block.

    Here is a picture of my dog Ginger...DS was drying her off after coming in and laid the towel on her...she just sat there.

    I did it again; got the Dr. scratching his head on how my body manufactured so many polyps in the large colon...he took out the biggest three and as many as he could of the others...but there were a lot of them. Told my bf I was playing with fire to have gone so long without having it done....since 2004. Lab reports will be back next Wednesday at 2:15 at his office, so that's when my appointment is. As long as I don't hear the 'C" word, I will smile. He is gong to read me the riot act and insist on doing the same procedure next year to harvest more polyps. And my lungs are a bit wheezy, so have to check that out next. Thee old gray mare ain't what she used to be... but as long as I can travel along...inch my way...life can be celebrated!! Coarse ground black pepper is suggested to help discourage polyps growth.

    Nice looking fabric pieces, Honchey. Anael, love that lily block. I am sorry if I missed anyone else on the last couple of pages here, a bit fuzzy headed yet.

    Yikes, the water is rising here; we went the long way in the dark on major highways and water was getting close to the highway in one spot..and even more impressive as we came home and could see the flooded fields...if it rains another 24 hours, bf and dh will have to stay longer... but I know they will get homesick just like I would. Love to travel, but want my own bed at night..

    No sewing today...maybe tomorrow.

    river pictures

    It is hard for you to realize how high the river is since you don't know what it usually looks like, but here are a few pictures. (The kids got me to go before all their school was done...just finishing up the last couple things now).

    First is a picture of a fence under water...you can see how close it is to the road.

    Second is a picture of the boat ramp...on the left you can barely see the top of a picnic table which is on top of a hill...the ramp is to the right of that. Then the other picnic table is on the other side of the ramp.

    Third picture shows how close the water is to the bottom of the bridge. There are cement pillars that you can usually see...I'll have to try to remember to show you pictures when the water goes down again.

    QNS--good to see you home already. Glad you were able to make it to and back home from the appt safely! Sounds like water is much higher in your area than directly around me. We don't have a lot a creeks real close by.

    No rain! The cold front came in but it's a dry one. Nary a drop one.
    I've got my cat in my lap again so I'm huntin' & peckin' again.

    Good to see you back again QNS. Let's hope you won't hear the C word!! Glad you made it home safely.
    No rain here, it's too dry for spring here. Temperatures are dropping again, below zero at night

    QNS, I had a couple of polyps over 10 years ago (no cancer thank God)! But that meant that I have to have a colonoscopy every 5 years. At my last one, no polyps. The worse part of the whole process is the crap you have to drink to clean yourself out. Yucky!!! The actual procedure is really quick, and they put you out, so you are not aware of what is going on. It is a really important procedure to have done - right Jan!!!
