    Carrie I hope you are able to get the machine you want, always fun to have a new sewing machine to play with.

    Anael keep sewing, I have just emptied my scrap bins, made 84 QAYG blocks but I like the idea of Log Cabins.

    QuiltE and QNS keep cooking we will all meet in the RV for brunch

    Oh wow. I don't think I'd ever run out o' scraps. LOL My hat's off ta ya. Now go & buy some fat quarters or fat eighths. Ya earned the right ta git new.

    Aneal, if you are knowledgeable about cast iron skillets, that is basically what the dutch oven is with a lid on it; I use it on my cooktop and in the oven. I can brown my meat, then add other things, continue to cook it on the cook top or put it into the oven to bake at an even rate of heat, it flavors the food very well. Guess I need to take a picture of it and post it. Very similar to what the chuck wagon cooks put over the outside fire to cook in. Or to bury it in hot coals of fire and let it simmer all day for the cowboy's supper meal. RFD TV station (Rural ??) did cooking over the fire in one of its scheduled programs for awhile.

    Helped out the LQS this afternoon....helped a lady figure out how much of what for her pattern of queen sized quilt for a wedding gift...and then picked out things to make my own donation to the shop....owner was so nice to both of us...she gave us 30% off each piece we purchased. Adopted PC gd will get more horse fabric....with the next shipment at the end of January along with some red and white heart fabric. That was after we had made a 46 round trip to my hometown for dh cable to operate his monitor..he had to have it NOW. . .or yesterday. Solution solved. Then he treated me to lunch at the B & B One of a Kind tea room. I ate their Kansas City Stew...hamburger with vegetables in a soup. When I did get back home, I had to put together northern beans and ham for a late supper tonight...by request from dh.

    LQS owner loved my BB and loved seeing them...gave me her 2 cents opinion on several projects that helped bounce around thoughts I had about them. She is also a good neighbor to us. and that is a two way road here...another neighbor dented up our mailbox this afternoon, but dh fixed that up again, so everything is OK.

    I finished my BBs!! They were just what I needed ta play with this last month. A true joy ta do. I cut 'em a li'le bit big so that ya'll can cut 'em down ta fit. I'd rather they be too big than too little. I coffee stained 4 o' 'em for the 4 who wanted cream or tan. My fabric came in white.

    QNS - you made me think of my mother with her bean soup. She also used Great White Northern Beans, and added Pinto Beans with her ham!

    JanRN ... yippee!!! now you can quilt your little ♥ out this weekend. Well, at least to get that border on ... and to package up the BBs. Don't forget to sign your blocks before you mail them off. Great breakfast ... remember that milk is Nature's most nearly perfect food!

    MiraB ... When else, but breakfast time?? Oh that'd be a wonderful smell to have in the neighbourhood. I think many of us have good memories that are food based. And I see your country admissions are surfacing!!!

    GGal ... I know, I'm a Chatty-Cathy! I should be around pretty much for the rest of the winter. Out-of-town work is usually minimal at this of the year and will pretty much be here in the office. Maybe the odd day or two, but never long stretches. So you are STUCK with me! The good news is that should leave me with more quilting time!! Yipppeeeee!!! Gosh GGal, you're getting me keen to drive to Indi for one of those machines! Quite the price difference from here.

    CarrieM ... I still love my 6600, and while I'd like the larger harp of the 7700, I don't think there's enough benefits to switch. Plus there are some features on the 6600 and not on the 7700, that I am not willing to give up. I keep hoping they will come out with a larger opening still in a newer model .... or I bite the big bullet for the Bernina as the BSR has me intrigued, and they do have one with the larger harp.

    QNSue ... I'm glad that the Egg Muffins were a hit! You'll have FUN switching up the add-ins. Haven't done sausages before, and know they'd be good! Likewise the hash browns. Really anything goes! Did I get Brownie Points with your DH? I'll try to get my other recipes and post them for you and everyone ... I'm sure you will like the custard, and am surprised you have never heard of it. I'm wondering if it's got another name in the USA? Glad you got your "quilting fix"!!! Sounds like you have a wonderful LQS to deal with and very personnable.

    Honchey ... Glad that someone else knows what Custard is! And Bread Pudding ... YUM!!! Sorry about your BINGO disappointment. The important part is that you had FUN! So ... are we doing the Compass Blocks for sure?

    Anael ... Bread Pudding has come a long way. Maybe you'd like the updated versions? So do you have a BSR with your Bernina? Do tell me more! Huge price difference to switch to a Bernina for me, so a big hesitation there. Maybe your price differences aren;t as large, being "closer" to the source? Log cabins are always so nice to make, and are so beautiful made with the narrower strips you are using.

    And now ...... another drumroll for another set of BBs done!!!
    Just need to figure out how and where to sign them .... and then I'll dispatch the local Huskies with them to CarrieM!!!

    BTW JanRN ... I too made extra blocks ... and have already decided that I HAVE to make a quilt with them. Plain and simple ... I like them too MUCH and have been playing with them tonight for a quilt layout. Now to do some calculating re fabric and see if I can get what I want. And don't you dare put yours into "that box" .... make a quilt WITH me!

    It's called custard or flan. Hmmm I think that I heard flan had coffee flavor. I'm not sure though. I love custard. I make it w/splenda.

    At $ 4 and up for 1 FQ I don't think so I thought about cutting up some yardage I don't fancy but I can only find stuff I like so that's no option either. Maybe it's time to start on the BB?

    Augh!!!! $4.00!! Yuck. I can agree about not buyin' any more either. I can go ta Handcock Fabrics & git 'em for $1.50 a piece, or at the LQS it is $2.00 ta $3.00. $4.00 is way too high. I hurt for ya. Hmmm maybe by one everyonce in a while. Just thinkin'.
