    The weather here is cool but not raining yet. But am watching not one but 2 rabbits in my back yard. DH thinks they are cute, but I want them gone. Know they are waiting for my garden to come up and then they will have a hay day. Such is life.

    I made the rhubarb bar cookies yesterday. Yes they are great. Half the pan is gone - but I shared with the neighbors. Haven't made the rhubarb lemonade yet, this morning!!!!

    Best get breakfast before out clue is posted because then it's my time.
    I went out this morning and the rabbits got into my garden and had a feast last night... ate all the leaves off my green bean plants... Going to have to fix a better barrier to keep them out. Luckily green beans are not to hard to get going again.

    Today will be a good day for me to get caught up on all the reading on this thread.. Ive been very busy this week and have not had the computer time I usually allow myself.

    Hope everyone is doing well. I wont be able to get started on our first clue till the middle of next week. DD is making her big move to Amarillo, TX and were still packing and helping her get ready. She leaves Wednesday Morning ... feeling a lil sad but I suppose that is to be expected.

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend all.. and I thank and Remember those of us who have served and are now serving for freedom.
    Have an awesome day!

    So excited and just so thrilled that the train has left the station. Woo Woo. Judy get better, rest, enjoy the weekend.
    It is sunny but a little breezy here is So. Cal. and with the sun out my plants are calling for water so after doing that, I am off cutting then I am going up to the observation car for some refreshments and looking at the view.

    Oh, oh. When pressing my fabrics, I discovered I only have a yard of background. Any excuse for a trip to the fabric store, LOL. It's just a WOW so if I can't match it, I can replace it easily (I hope).

    The rabbits didn't get hungry enough this winter to eat my burning bush. I can't believe how big it is without its annual pruning. I have more trouble with squirrels. I stood in the window and watched one eat the buds off my tulips. Grrr.

    Off to the fabric store, grocery store and flower market. Two of the three are fun.

    Hi all! We are heading home today from our two week RV vacation in Nor Cali. It was a fun time, camping with family and our BFF's and family! Little ones had fun getting acquainted; so fun to watch them play, side by side and together: 21 month old, 2 yr old, almost 4 yr old and 5 yr old. Their mommies were best friends growing up-we camped almost every summer of their lives together!! Brought back lots and lots of memories to we grandparents!!

    We will either get home later today (if Hubby decides to drive all the way) or tomorrow sometime. We are about 9 hours from home, if no traffic. So can't hop on of this train as yet; but glad it has finally started!! I probably won't be able to start for a couple weeks, so I will join the others in the observation deck!!

    [Once home will have a lot of stuff to do, cleaning up motorhome, etc, etc, etc. Then Tuesday I have outpatient surgery to remove a 6.6 cm cyst on my ovary. (long story short, I had kidney stones and was hospitalized last summer. At my 6 month checkup with my urologist I had an abdomen xray and he saw the cyst on it. So went to GYN-had ultra sound and there it was! Didn't have it 6 months ago! Doctor is pretty confident it's liquid filled-blood test came back normal--but he said it's best to remove these cysts.]

    So I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's progress!!

    Judy: so sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Praying for your speedy recovery!!

I do have more orange fabric but thought that might be too much orange and although there is some red in the first fabric not sure about using that red and the bright green might be too bright and the darker green might be too dark with the black background. Like I said help help help.
    PokerDiva - Your fabrics are so pretty. I am only a lurker, but it is so much fun for me to sneak on the train.

    coopah, I'm with you. I swore no more HSTs for a while. Too many in the quilt on the machine and the one at church, but I'm game. I want these pastel Christmas fabrics gone, so I'm in. 48 isn't too many and they aren't tiny.

    I need a glass of iced tea before I head out shopping - oh, open house cookies to bake, too. Club car, here I come.
