DublB ... It's going to be such a nice quilt, so stick with it. With the stars, I can see why they had you use a focus block instead of a pieced one ... let the starts show themselves off!
MiraB ... Such a contrast between the two ... The white and dresdens is so fresh. And yes, the Later Bloomers is just not your norm ... if I didn't know, I'd have said it belonged to CarrieM. More her colours, I'd say. One thing about UFOs, it doesn't take as much work to finish them!! Let your daughter say what she wishes ... you may have UFOs but you have a LOT of finishes! :D:D
Good Night ladies!
QNS, I hope the news won't be bad! Thinking of you today ((((HUGS))))
Mirabelle, like QuiltE I didn't think you have UFO's......:) I love the Late Bloomers even though it wouldn't have been my choice of colours too. The Dresden is lovely, would be a great practice quilt :D
QuiltE, thanks, you posted the link in the other thread. I think I need to make a new list of all the projects I want to do and of all the projects I have to finish first before I start new ones :) We can only have one Queen of Starting Quilts, can't we? LOL
Jeanie, such a lovely block! GrannyQ, great job with your first try on batiks! I LOVE batiks!!
Today I won't be sewing much. This morning I won't be home, will be back at about 1.30 pm. The weather will be nice again today so maybe I will buy some plants for my garden. It's a tiny garden so I won't need that many :)
Mirabelle--those are some nice UFOs do you have a plan for them once finished? QE is right I am drawn to the darker one...I really do like them both though. :)
Anael--hope you have a nice day even if it isn't in the sewing room.
QE--did you see my email about the sewing machine feet? I see you are "here" so thought I would ask. :)
Anael ... you could always be a Princess! :)
CarrieM ... your email arrived, along with the notice of the update to this thread. Will go there next.
You all would have laughed at me last night …
……. I did a bit of stitching onmy older Janome that I kept when I bought my 6600.
Yes, had to get my fix!!!!!!
So here I was hitting my machine … to cut the thread.
Doesn’t do that!
I kept shifting my right leg to the right, to lift the presser foot.
Odd enough there was nothing there.
Such a pain to move my hand in and lift the foot.
Thankfully needle up/down was on that machine.
… but without the auto-threadcutter, I had to push that button too.
Add to the fact … its size. Itwas like working on a kid’s machine.
Though I will say … I love how it purred along.
Such a sweet little machine.
Oh what we get used to and that becomes second nature to us!!!
And ... reinforces, we never miss what we never had ... but gosh, once we have it .............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D
Good Morning Ladies :D
I feel soooo bad, I have cut my pieces for my April MB TWICE and I have to do it again :( Oh well as long as my ____ dosent mind the wait, it will be a GOOD wait :D
Yesterday my washer broke, so I took it apart and ordered a new drain pump motor.... Dh hovering over me the entire time asking me if I was doing it right!!! I told him to GO AWAY and got it done... I HOPE my new part comes today :D oh the treasure hunt of it being delivered UPS... we never know which neighbor will receive it :D :D :D
Im sending you warm thoughts today.
I told Dh what you had to say about the ducks.... sitting at breakfast... "You know, QNinaSue says...."
QuiltE I recieved your little block :D I will get right on it!
All Have a GOOD one :D
Cowgirl up in the the virtual RV for those chocolate cowgirl cookies with a chocolate star in the center. Of course you all deserving a star for today. Very similar to what I sent out in the Christmas cookie boxes Thanks for the hugs for today...this afternoon.
Bf daughter is delivering her latest baby in early June or middle of June so no plans now for the Iowa Shop Hop. She also has been awarded(adopted) the three boys by the state of Iowa...has 3 (two in high school, one born a year ago) other children so is saving for a bigger house. She has a 'boy friend with sleeping privileges' who helps support his son) Bf will be with her at that time period, first priority.
Miss a day....miss alot!!! When I get home I will show you all the UFO's I have....I just wish I had some of the talent of you finishers here...
MB's should be shown as soon as the first person gets their's...no sense in waiting...
DD, I'm sure your MB receipient will be very understanding....
I can't buy any new fabric with Bingo winnings...they went into the Bingo system never to be found again it seems..:)
QNS...Thinking of you today.......Will post photos of the two UFO's I brought with me but haven't done anything with....
I really feel lost without having a car down here....I told DH that I have to HAVE one down here.....so now I can look for one...I am just too used to picking up and going where I want to when I want to...
I'm going to cut out some more Birdies....this time making sure they have heads & bellies....
Gather around in the RV, everyone, 'cause I am good to go. He removed all the 'Hyperplastic polyp' and fragments of 'tubular adenoma', (one Sigmod colon, two colon polyp, on 60 cm, one at 50 cm) but wants to do the procedure again next year because he says I had too many of them. Since I know they have removed four and six polyps at a time before...I think I am very lucky just to have the three. Also, the nurse was telling me that coarse pepper acts as sandpaper in the colon and reduces the number of polyps in the colon, so I bought some coarse pepper to use with all meals.
Thank you all for your prayers and hugs!!
Bgf went back home to her dh who was missing her.
