    Hugs to you, Anael. Wish I could do more than that.

    Beautiful block for mirabelle, Gal. Excellent. Love yours too, QuiltE. Very clever choice of fabrics for carrie.

    OK you are a sweetie to literally drop everything to go help your friend.

    QNS, We could be sisters. Yesterday I could have killed my better half. He is so good to me and is always a big help around here but yesterday he got on my last nerve about noon and then it went down hill from there. Must be a full moon.

    QNS, you are for sure not the only one who makes mistakes, you just got caught.

    Here's a good one on me. I don't often drive by myself because I have Meniere's Disease and I can get sudden onset of vertigo with no warning. A simple thing like a shoulder check when changing lanes can trigger an episode. I definitely should not be driving if that happens as I become debilitated fast.

    A while back my husband and sons were shingling our roof. They were running low on shingling nails so they sent me to Home Depot. I felt ok that day so agreed to go. As I am getting in the truck, my son hollers from the roof to pick up a two- four of beer as well. So off I go , get the nails, then head over to get the beer. I put the beer in the back of the truck, feel ever so smug that I am doing this all by myself and then go sit in the passenger seat. After awhile the penny drops and I realize I'm driving. I laughed out loud all the way home!

    View from our back deck. This is our neighbour's May Day tree. It is beautiful, but it hates me. There is at least a half inch of yellow pollen floating in the top of our rain barrels from it. Achoo!

    GGal and MiraB ... still an incredibly beautiful block! And better still, being that it is in the MiraB fabrics! Thanks for the kind words re my GFG. Yes, glad to know the grunt work is done and over!MiraB ... oh dear! How sad!

    Anael ... {{{HUGS}}} I can totally understand your disappointment. It seemed all so close to their coming home. Great set up for quilting! I forget, do you leave it permanently set up and use it as your cutting table when not quilting? And with it set up, does this mean you are going to be doing some more quilting?

    QNSue ... here's hoping today IS a better day. In the meantime, keep your focus on your get away on Thursday, to help you cope. Maybe you could leave on Wednesday and stay overnight at your friend's home? Would do you good!

    JanieW ... too funny on your waiting for your chauffeur! Old habits!!! What a lovely back yard, and complete with your greenhouse! achoo!!! I've never seen or heard of a May Day tree. It looks like it puts on quite a show .... though not so enjoyable when one is suffering from it. achoo!!!

    About my set up: no, it's not permanently, it's not suitable as cutting table. Besides it's huge so very inconvenient to leave it on my dining table. I only use it with FMQ.

    Janie, lovely back yard! I had a good laugh when I read about you sitting in the wrong seat

    I thought I'll do some FMQ. Bought expensive thread (Madeira) and it keeps breaking! I knew my Brother doesn't like Madeira but my Bernina doesn't either
    I was looking for Aurifil but the LQS only has # 40 and my Bernina doesn't want that either!

    Are you telling me that my Bernina is a Thread Diva?
    YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I noticed that Bernina seems to promote Mettler threads in the manual. I haven't used it yet, as I have quite a good Aurifil stash. Granted, I have yet to do any FMQ!

    I didn't realize it was your dining room table! Yes, definitely could not leave that set up all the time. Did you use the rigid foam insulation?

    When the thread breaks, change to a different needle....its all in the size of the thread going with the right side of needle. I will copy my little booklet onto the computer this evening and sent it to both of you...learned that at my lessons and it made sense to me.

    No dh has no close friends, he has always 'borrowed' mine but its a better day 'cause he got his own way all morning. Time to finish planting the front of the house garden...my fingers are crossed. No, quiltE, bf has two rooms full of fabric....like you cannot see the floor...so no staying there.

    Janie love the tree but understand the pollen problem.

    QNSue ... Just think of what a good sleep you;d have, on top of that fabric!!! (..............kidding!!!!!!!!!) Another tip I learned about needles and threads ... use a top stitch needle as it gives a longer groove from the eye up the shaft of the needle. And I've probably used the wrong terminology, but you get the idea!!



    yooohooooooo DDamsel ........... I'm awaiting those pink duckie photos!!!!

    Janie you made me smile this morning, love your driving story, boy if I didn't drive myself I wouldn't go anywhere, even when DH and I go somewhere together he gets in the passenger seat what a beautiful back yard you have, pity about the tree - bless you!!!!

    Anael will say a special prayer for Bram and Isa and also you today, remember we are but a click of the fingers away if you need to chat..

    QNS hope today gets better for you, just hide in your sewing room and forget your worries.

    Now time for me to finish some chores before DH gets home, I think I am getting too used to being on my own for a week, hope he doesn't decide to retire any time soon

    Completed most of the planting of flowers and garden. Will replace newspapers in the tires with tomato plant tomorrow and wet them down to stick in place.

    The high winds picked up the dog run covered with tarps and wrapped it around a couple of trees. It threw the logs on top to the West, the gate of the run to the East. So we need to free the tarps, and fold them up; then try to straighten up the fence around the run.

    Sewing Day Thursday in the lesson on the embroidery machine in Des Moines. Will love the break from home. But the fall out comes when I bring it all home. So be it. He told me I could set up my sewing room so I am...my way. And I ordered one more folding table for my old machine, Bernina 1530. Now the challenge is clean up the room so everything will fit into the 14 by 12 room.
