    Suggestions, please!
    And THANK YOU!!!!!!!
    You've probably already addressed this but wool battin' is the easiest ta hand quilt through w/poly bein' the next.

    I think its Connecting threads that rates each batting on its site. Superior threads will rate the thread and suggest needles for each, I think.

    www.EmbroideryLibrary.com has lots of free patterns we were told yesterday. Have not checked it out yet. Finished MB for the month and sent it to the judge. BF has lots of health issues and on a close baby/watch/wait; but if the baby doen't decide to be born on Monday, will go again. Probably the rest will wait until after the baby is born, when bf will bring her dh with her, and they will stay in 'their' bedroom here and go from here to the Eastern sites.

    EmbroideryLibrary doesn't have many free patterns but they do have new ones each month. When you do a Google search for free embroidery patterns you will find a lot. They're not all good quality though. I had a look on my computer to see if I have a quitar outline but I don't. I have guitar designs but not only outline.

    I can't keep up with everybody's news so forgive me if I missed something.

    Anael... great news about Isa. Now we'll get Bram through his next challenge. Those little ones have been through so much and they just keep getting cuter.

    QNS.. sound like you had a fun shop hop and got some loot, too.

    I have been slaving in the garden and doing some cooking to take on our next trip to the grandkids down south. I haven't been sewing much, just a bit of FMQ practice. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so maybe I'll get down to the sewing room then.

    Here's a few pics of my garden that I took just a few minutes ago.

    Janie - beautiful flowers, and cute, cute twins! Good to hear from you!

    Love seeing your flower gardens and enjoy the fact you did label them so I can tell what they are. Twins look so cute and irresistible, with the charm inherited from grandparents?

    Jeanie, how's the remodel coming on? I hope its moving along for you.

    Love the good news about the SEW GRANDS, Anael.

    QNS - Remodel has been at a stand still for over two weeks. Insurance Company is dragging their feet something fierce. So frustrating! Been playing phone tag today with my rep. We are going camping with our group next week, so probably will have nothing done while we are away. I am so hating this!!!

    Jeanie, there is a state insurance board that you can talk too...and maybe that will hurry up your company. Might be worth a try...most do not like people to do that...and there are probably other choices as well to get your company into action. I just know about the state boards...after living in Texas and having the water problem that caused the main floor to be totally replaced...actually the bank that loaned us the monies to put it back up into shape helped us too. We got instant results and work done promptly. Good luck to you. At least you are in your RV and not staying at a motel; wonder if the insurance would move faster if they were paying for your motel bill; maybe you should charge them for every night you have to spent in your RV. just a thought.

    QNS - actually we are staying in our house. I have set up a make shift kitchen with microwave and toaster oven and our refrigerator in the garage. I can use the RV, as it is in front of our house if I need to. The over the cooktop microwave/convection oven is still in place too, so I have used that to bake in. It is just so darn inconvenient!

    It's so wonderful to see how we share in this group.
    Janie the flowers are so delicate and pretty--the boys are strong and handsome! Lady Slippers grow in the wild here--and are hard to find--I know a couple of secret places. Thanks for sharing
    QNS--sorghum sudan: we will be chopping it for silage--takes the edge off. Oh I hope I can find some Iowa fabric tomorrow! Our smaller stores away from the larger urban areas may not see it fly out so fast. It is a fun fabric isn't it? Red Roxy is a mother daughter team who just purchased LQS in Decorah this winter.
    Jeanie--it's a good thing you can get away from the chaos in the house and enjoy friends and nature! Hope MrJG has fully recuperated.
