QNS - my post for the tables is #5110 on July 20th.
Anael - what darling photos of our SewGrands and Mick. It looks like they are growing like weeds! Isn't it amazing how they have progressed. We all just prayed that they would live! I don't think I've ever seen such tiny little ones!
Jeanie, you had a post before that one gave the Model number of the table...that was the one I was searching for....but thanks for the referral back to that one...love the photo you took and the beautiful large window in your sewing room.
Thanks, Jeanie, I love the look of the table. Is it split into half or not? That would make it carry easier, I think. Thank you.
JeanieG ... good thinking about the neutral colours. I tried to find it on the Behr site, but it didn;t seem to want to cooperate with me. Yeaaaa for the great progress on your PC quilt.
DublB ... Just think, by the time you have your sewing things done, your DH will have the rest of the house packed! :)
MiraB ... did the Tiger in YOU, give him the grrrrrrrrr? and tell him, time to go back to work? :D Guess it''s time to tell him to design first, and you'll stitch later. Tell him that I really liked the black as it just seemed to make the tiger glow! BTW ... the recipe uses the bottled lemon juice not lemons ... though I suppose you could squeeze a whole bunch of them and I bet that'd make even better squares!
Anael ... How EXCITING to have the twins come for a visit! And a good way to think of the significance of the date. So sweet and special the SewGrands and Mick are! Too funny that your DS liked the Lemon Squares ... did he know what they were? :) Guess you'll have to make more of them now.
GGal ... Great start on our A4A quilt! The colours/fabrics are going to make for a lovely soft look. The style of the quilt reminds me a lot of a quilt I did earlier, as a $10 Challenge thru a LQS. So, please do share some of the tips you have picked up. I am sure we can all learn more about A4A!
Just a quick note...I got a beautiful MB today from Ggal...thank you so much! I worked today so need to get something to eat, ice my shoulder and put my feet up for a while. Picture later tonight or tomorrow after PT.
Yes, it is split in half and has a lock so it will not callapse on you! I was able to drop it to the medium size myself and am using it to hold the quilt while I'm quilting it. Then you can just push in the little buttons and pull it back into the top position for cutting.

QuiltE, I have the bottled lemon juice, so might use the fresh and bottled together.. DH SHOULD be going back to work tomorrow but will be home for another two weeks:mad::D, love him to bits but he sure is hard work, I seem to do a lot of cooking while he is home:D
It is our clubs big day on Thursday so I am planning on staying at DD's Thursday night and come home Friday afternoon. (I plan on raiding her stash for my fabric for SYE):shock: Then DS is coming over for dinner Saturday, cooking Braised Leg of Lamb yummo.
Also have to start getting organised for my retreat in September, I still haven't made up my mind on what to take to work on for the weekend. At this point I just want to finish some projects before starting another.. shocking I know:D Now DH has gone fishing for a couple of hours so I am off to the sewing room to do some more quilting....
Ate some yummy sweet corn for supper and am feeling rested. :) Here is my newest MB (from Ggal)...I will get a picture of all of them together tomorrow since the others are in the clubhouse.
Anael--cute pictures of the Sew Grands (including Mick)
OK--your time with the Grands sounds crazy, but I am sure you're making good memories for them.
QE--congrats on the ribbons. How many more fairs will you be entering quilts in this summer/fall?
Jeanie--happy to hear how quickly things are coming along in the house. Maybe your cabinets will show up early....
Bev--hope you and DH made some good progress on the packing. We've owned 3 houses...#1 was across the street from #2 so that made it very easy to pack. #3 was just 3 miles away from #2 so still close. We didn't sell either until after we were fully moved out which meant not having to pack and move every thing in just a couple days.
D_D--looks like you and your sister are making some great choices for the wedding.
Karen--that is a neat tiger. You've been busy even with DH home. Have fun at your clubs this week and also spending time with DD and DS this week.
Ggal--you're making good progress on your A4A
Jan--is it this week you go shopping?
Honchey--hope you get rested up and are able to get some sewing done before working again.
QNS--were you able to find a table? I have 2-6ft ones, but they aren't adjustable...that would be nice.
Janie--how is the "exploded" sewing room coming along? Did you make enough progress to let yourself sew yet??
GrannyQ--wanted to let you know I am thinking of you.
Beautiful block, Carrie, from GG. Great job on piecing the block; I know how hard that one is too do...USA blue ribbon on that one.
Going to look at Wal Mart tables tomorrow and see if they have it in my hometown. Post packages to the ones I have emailed. Hope it does not get too hot.
