    WOW Jan, gorgeous block! Anne, great job

    I didn't play with my new skills on the balloon picture. The right one is upside down or at least it looks like that. It's flying a bit higher than the left one, that's because the pilot has to rely on the pilot of the left balloon for navigating. He can't see where he's going as he's inside the balloon

    Great job, Anne; lucky Jan. Its that favorite time of the month when we see 'eye' candy. And those favorite words, It's in the mail! And the MBs are on their way!!

    Anael, I love the pictures you post. One never knows when the 'surprise' happens and it looks like the balloon is upside down, when it is not, but pictures can be like that. The unexpected.

    Not unlike life its self when it brings the unexpected pleasant surprises. A Nubian month old nanny appearing on the local swab page that is temping but its $$$, and I am several $ short of asking price right now. Just thinking I might be able to 'baby' myself today and rest my knee and ease my eye usage a bit. Lots of choices in the quilt room to do, Mirabelle is getting me excited about starting on the Spike Your English; Carrie and Anael about the Fifty Stars; embroidery machine to push button on trial run of the 'guitar' pattern. And I'd like to set together the Irish Mist....or one of the other 101 projects. And the stories we will hear from QuiltE when she returns from her journeys.

    Celebrate the day; it will not come again in our life time.

    Learning a new machine is a learning curve one must experience first hand. Rule one: It does not stop when you holler: "Whoa!" after pushing the 'go' button and its on fast speed and you cannot remember how you stop it!! Oh, missing that one one that had a foot pedal...wait a minute, this one has a foot pedal!! And a slow speed. It is going to be a long curve learning time! LOL!!

    Thanks QNS, I'm glad you like my pictures.

    No, machines don't stop on that command My Brother only does embroidery without foot pedal and I don't use the stop-go button while sewing. I'm like you, hollering at the machine and forgetting to push the button!

    QNS--it took me a while to get used to the start/stop button too, but now I never use my pedal! I am still getting used to the knee lift bar when quilting. Watch your fingers!!!

    Bev, gorgeous blocks. I was wondering for which quilt but it dawned Replacements of PC blocks.

    Mirabelle, I just now read your sad story about the machines. When going to the retreat you can make a little detour and come and use one of my machines. I would be happy to have you here

    I just found this recipe on the internet, it looks great. Didn't make it so I can't tell you how it is.

    Layered Spaghetti Casserole

    What You'll Need:
    8 ounces uncooked spaghetti
    1 pound ground chuck
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 (26-ounce) jar pasta sauce with mushrooms
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

    What To Do: Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.
    Meanwhile, cook beef and onion in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Combine pasta, meat mixture, and pasta sauce in a large bowl; toss to combine.
    Set aside.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk; cook 5 minutes or until thickened.
    Remove from heat; stir in Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
    Pour half of spaghetti mixture into a lightly greased 7- x 11-inch baking dish; pour cheese sauce over spaghetti.
    Sprinkle with 1 cup Cheddar cheese.
    Top with remaining spaghetti mixture, and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup Cheddar cheese.
    Bake 15 minutes or until cheese melts.

    Use egg plant or squash instead of the pasta; tastes good. Use layering system of veggie, then sauce, then cheese and repeat once...I have done it this way for company and they all 'liked' it.
