    Well I had a response all ready to sent this morning and then something happened, then I had other things to do so I will write now instead.

    Pretty MBs received...Jan good job choosing light colors for QE. Ggal lots of pieces in that block, great fabrics too.

    QE--I like your GFG. Not something on my "to do" list at this point in time.

    QNS--sorry you and DH haven't been getting along the best....maybe tomorrow will be better. You asked what kind of dogs I have: they are rottweilers, 3yr old females.

    Anael--thanks for the picture of your FMQing table set up. Looks nice! Sorry to hear about the twins. Still praying....

    Janie--your raised flower beds in your backyard look good...nice way not to have to mow!

    I got rows together for the airplane and LC quilts....still working on propeller borders.

    We get along almost like we have for 47 years, Carrie, except now he has been on some meds for diabetics that has apparently affected his mind, so he has good days and bad days. Like leaving the burning propane torch on the garage workbench all day...with it still burning...his mind just left it and he went on to other things. I found it at 3pm, still burning. He leaves the stove burners on, after he is done cooking, but at least he moves his pans off most of the time.

    And we are together 24/7; he wants me to entertain him the whole time, tell him where his latest lost item is, and fix my whole attention on him. That's why I like to retreat to the sewing room by myself on occasions. He feels he needs to 'entertain' my friends with his stories that are of interest to him and in the car on a journey too even though he is hard of hearing, so his voice gets a little loud. Bf couple understand that....others avoid us and I cannot blame them. Bad days are hard, so please bear with me and I will try not to complain as much as I have lately. Thanks for listening to me.

    MiraB ... yes, keep him working!

    QNSue ... Try to get some sewing in tomorrow and then have a good day away on Thursday. Re your comments about how the meds have been affecting your husband. Have you mentioned it to the Dr? Is there any option that may not have those effects? I know how hard it is to live with those types of effects (but from a different cause) so I really do feel for you.

    Honchey ... oh so beautiful!!

    CarrieM ... Could you grow those rhododendrons? It looks like Honchey's have a fair amount of shade. You're really on a roll with your quilts! Honestly, I never thought I'd like doing the GFG, but surprisingly I have !


    We had quite a storm last night, with high winds and 3/4" rain. Another round of it late this afternoon. Haven't checked the rain gauge yet. A community not far from me had a small tornado touch down today. Thankfully nothing like Oklahoma!

    Tonight ... I finished Out to Pasture top and backing. Also, a table topper that's similar. Getting a few things ready and then soon will be in quilting mode!

    Wow, lots and lots of messages today. I did not get my email update, so had to log in to the site.

    QNS - those Columbine are spectacular. Also your camera takes wonderful photos!

    Janie - I've never heard of Antoinette Bouquit Tulips - I wonder if I cn grow them here? They are beautiful.

    All the new MB are great! Anxious to see the rest for the month. My MB for ______ is going out tomorrow.

    Honchey - those Rhododendrons are so pretty too.

    QNS whenever you need a break you can always come and hang out here with your friends, we don't mind you venting some steam, sometimes that is a good thing. Gets it off your chest then you can move on...

    Beautiful flowers Honchey, reminds me of where I grew up, the city was dubbed the Garden City and every year we had the Carnival of Flowers, still going today, they have a street parade of floral floats and there is a judged garden section, very highly coveted prize being the winning garden for the city.

    Have been busy today, had to take Sammy to the vet, not good news, he has arthritis in his back and hips and we have 14 steps to get into our house and he is not allowed to walk up or down them so guess who has the job of carrying all 13.6 kilos or 29 lbs of him downstairs and then back upstairs. We have to make a decision in the next few months..

    I also managed to get the borders on my lap quilt and took another photo of the Not Marjen quilt. Will start quilting one of them next week

    Very productive, Mirabelle. In reading back through the threads, there are pictures proving how productive you are in the quilting room and its wonderful. May I do half as well when I get the sewing room 'set up' with the new machines.

    Thanks for listening to me; its another stage in life where we do not have control of things but trust in the Man above can get us through the journey of Life. Did not want you to think, Carrie, that we were having trouble with one another...its just the things we face in Live that throws the curve ball.

    Its nice, QuiltE, that you are making progress in the sewing room.

    Love your setting at your home, Honchey. Beautiful woods and flowers. Love everyone's chatter. Have a good day everyone. Celebrate a new day.

    Thank you QNS and thank you to everyone who listened to my mad ramblings about the Marjen quilt. I am happy with the result, now to think about how I want to quilt it. I know what I am going to do on the lap quilt and it should be quick. Have my sewing basket ready for patchwork tomorrow, am going to start cutting Smith Mountain Morning so hopefully it won't take me too long to get it all cut and start some sewing AFTER the quilting is done (I promise)

    Welcome Back, JeanieG! ... hope the time away helped your re-charge and be ready for the next onslaught of workers and decisions! And that your husband recuperated.

    MiraB ... oh myyyyyy Marjen has become Remarkable. Guess what? I think you have made it even nicer than it would have been. The roses on the black with the green really frame it up beautifully. So sorry about poor Sammy. The lap quilt is lovely, but sorry, it kind of loses out to Marjen. I can only aspire to your productivity!

    QNSue ... yes, it's good to accept and understand the reasons, though it is also hard to cope at times. Through all this be sure to keep care of yourself. While you may not be able to "escape", be sure to do something for YOU every day! Those new machines and tables should be a big help for that.

    An apology is due to all of you--I'm so sorry I've been AWOL lately. I didn't realize how difficult it is to sell a house; was supposed to be sold "as is", simple cash sale. NOT!! The buyers had an inspection done and came back asking for over $10,000 in concessions or repairs. I said no and prepared to walk away and re-list and start this long marketing process all over. 24 hours later they said ok. Now all the running around getting the paper work in order, insurance changed, utilities changed, etc. Closing is set for 1 week from tomorrow, God willing, so pray nothing else happens. I didn't want to come here to whine so poor MrJanRn has been the recipient of my rants & whines.

    I'm so jealous of all of your gorgeous flowers and trees. I'll take them as my virtual garden and enjoy them with you.

    QNS, know what you mean about DH being home 24/7. For the first 35 years of our marriage, MrJanRn traveled for long periods of time. I was used to running things "my way" and raised our son, worked, had a life. 8 years ago he started working from home and wow!! Talk about husband overload. I'm still not used to having to discuss decisions, meal plans, etc. with someone. And he tried to take over LOL!! We have adjusted, slowly; he works in his basement office and I work upstairs in the Bat Cave and meet at dinner time.

    Oh how our babies have grown!! Lots of prayers that the problems are worked out and they can go home soon.

    All the MB's posted are fantastic. I'm humbled when I see mine up against such beautiful work. And all the other blocks and quilts yinz are doing are wonderful.

    Mirab, Patches can't go up and down steps either. He's 75 lbs so no carrying him. At the pet store we did find a harness that goes around his back end to help support him. We also built a ramp (looks ugly but works for him) off the back deck. And yes, we also have to make some decisions in the coming weeks or months.

    Hopefully after next week I'll be back on the Pony Ride. No more extra work days. House taken care of. And I promise no whining. I'm looking forward to our next project. Has there been any decisions made as to what that will be? I may have missed it while catching up.
    Peace-Jan
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    When I was accused of living in a fantasy world I almost fell off my unicorn.
