    Out to Pasture ....
    Here's the two I finished up last night. Both are made with the cows that I had CarrieM shop and sent north to me! ... both are 6" squares, with the quilt finishing at 46"x58" and the table topper 34" square. (BTW the side borders will be trimmed down to the same as the top/bottom. I left extra to work with when sandwiching and will mark it so I won't quilt on it ... then will trim down)

    Ladies, your suggestions please for quilting .... the traditional Irish Chain diagonal stitching would be too minimal. So this neophyte to quilting looks to your expertise and knowledge!

    JanRN ... fingers crossed for next week! Real Estate dealings can be so frustrating. Interesting that they decided to close after you said no ... good that you held your ground! Soon you will not have the added worries of the extra house.

    Mirabelle....I too think the Marjen is better with your adaptations. Have fun at patchwork!
    QNS....try using the kitchen timer to establish some time outs for each other. I did that when my kids were little. Everyone had to nap after lunch and they would usually complain. I would set the timer for 30 minutes and if they could hear it, they could get up other wise they needed the nap. There were times I set the timer for longer if I needed break but I never told them. An impartial referee could take some of the tension out of the air.
    Honchey...what beautiful rhododendrons! Growing them are on my bucket list.
    Jeanie...welcome back. I hope DH is fully recovered, the smoke has cleared from the fires, and the renovation goes smoothly.
    Janie...you gave me a laugh too. Sorry about the virtago. My older brother has something similar to the point that there isn't too much that he enjoys doing anymore and he was always to active with building and gardening.
    QuiltE....what restraint! A new machine and table and nothing to show for it yet! I wouldn't be able to keep my hands off of it.
    JanR....just saying hi and don't work your fingers to the bone! We posted at the same time. Congratulations on the house. We don't turn friends away if they have a whinny time.
    Carrie...I bet you could grow azaleas like Honchey. Shade and acid soil and they love it. Also I've found the knock out roses. Give them a chance and they will grow almost anywhere and bloom constantly. I don't trim mine much but they are pretty well mannered demanding little care.
    No rain during the day yesterday so I finally got to the garden mid afternoon. Something is digging in one of my beds!! Luckily I haven't planted it yet. It looks like rain today so I think I can get SS together and clear the design wall. Have a good day everyone!

    GGal ... see above! Though I will fess, that I did most of both with my old machine. I do have my new machine project finished to a flimsy. It's hanging on my design wall, as I am unsure what to do for the borders.

    Most of us at one time or another, for whatever reasons, have gone on "vacation"...That's OKAY...please don't feel you need to explain..We've all been there and understand....

    With myself, I find I take on too much then have a hard time getting it all done on time...one of the reasons I don't like deadlines.

    Love your cows, QuiltE. I am not an imaginative one, but I wonder if you are ready to do some feathers in the borders with your new machine and the BSR?

    Mirabelle, I don't know how you do all that you do. QNS , same goes!

    My machine needed an adjustment as it wasn't sounding right when the needle was going in to the fabric. After a needle change, that didn't solve it, I took it to my dealer. He is the best. He kept it for a few hours, called me to tell me he had found and fixed the issue and then wouldn't let me pay for the service. Now she is singing along again.

    As far as I'm concerned, I think we share all our good stuff like flowers , fabric, pictures of grandkids and wonderful things that happen to us. To me, true friendship means that we have a safe place to share our not so pleasant aspects of life.

    It feels like to me we have created a group of women who genuinely care about each other. We are willing to tell it like it is when asked for advice, we are willing to lend an ear when we need to vent. I hope no one feels like they can't take a break, or come here to vent.

    Janie, you said it so right! That's who we are!
    QNS, if you feel like venting, just do. We're all here to listen and give hugs whenever needed.

    QuiltE, what did I see? You used white ?!? Just pull out some practice pieces and start using the BSR

    Anne, beautiful Rhododendrons! They don't grow in my garden

    Mirabelle, gorgeous quilts! Your Marjen turned out beautiful!

    All ye gather in the virtual RV....Cowboy Chocolate Cookies, Butter Scotch Banana -with peach jam centers, and Peanut Butter Cowboy cookies. Homemade Turkey salad for sandwiches . Dh says those BSB surpass chocolate chip cookies.

    Vacation??? with chickens and ducks, no way. Machine poor now, so need to work to set everything up this weekend. First put together the sewing desks, fit them into the room; then add sewing machines, then add the stash back in.

    Dh took a load of steel and iron into the salvage yard this morning; it was so quiet, I had to clean up the great room and bake cookies. Found my dinning room table again; it was so loaded up, that if anyone shouted "All abroad!" it would have sailed out the door. See, Honchey, I found the laughing face too.
