    This will be my last accomplishment of the day. Dinner is in the crockpot, and almost time to feed the dogs. Name:  P1010833(1).JPG

    I just walked the dogs and now can't quilt for a few minutes. It's 12 degrees out and one of gloves got wet so I have a very cold hand. Ouchy!

    I made quite a few of the sashing strips with flying geese on each end and discovered I need 16 more. I'll work on those as soon as I thaw out. I can't post a picture. My new printer has no SD card port and I'm not sure where the camera cords are.

    Well, I did get some pieces cut out, but not as many as I would have liked. Of course, when you start one thing something else gets in your way. Maybe its just me that it happens . Anyway its been a fun day, love all the work everybody has accomplised so far. Keep up the good work. When can we have another VQD?
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    Trying out some fabrics that I'm considering for a wedding quilt. The couple wants black, white, champagne. Champagne? I got some satin that seems like champagne to me. I'm making a Bridal Path block; got the pieces cut out while baking cookies. Now to begin sewing.

    I SO wanted to participate today, needed to get some sewing done. But I woke this morning with the worst arthritis flare I've had in a while, hurt so bad I was considering taking the heavy pain drugs. I hate to resort to those because they make me so woggy, so I got back in bed with the electric blanket and slept another 4 hours. it's now 5:30 pm and I've just had some soup and signed on to check on all of you.

    Everyone is doing so well! Keep up the good work, seeing all the photos is very inspiring.

    Seems that is has been a very good day for many of you. As for me, this is the way the day has gone so far: Church at 10; back home with two visitors, my good friend who quilts and my sister. I showed them the last three projects that I had finished; we looked at 50th anniversary pictures. When they left, went grocery shopping for staples like milk and bread, and of course DH's Pepsi. While at the grocery store, picked up lunch at the deli. Put away groceries and had lunch. Rested for a while to get rid of the headache. Then put jambalaya cooking in the rice cooker for supper. It's almost 5 o'clock and I haven't been to the sewing machine yet. Well, as Alexander would say, "Some days are like that; yes, they are." It's good to see that some have been so productive. The day isn't over yet ....so there's hope.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    OK so today is our 35th wedding anniversary. My husband has been really sick for days so our plans have all changed. Daughter and her boyfriend are making us dinner. As soon as I am done enjoying that and then fact that I will not need to clean up, I am heading to my sewing room to start a memory quilt. My friend is celebrating her 60th bday and I thought it would be a great surprise. Since I never made one before, tonight will involve a lot of research. Anyone have any hints for copying pictures, please chime in. I am at a loss. Enjoy what remains of your day everyone. Hope you all accomplished what you set out to do. Great thread!!!!!

    Let me see... Yesterday I read the announcement for the sewing and decided to join. Well, woke up, breakfast and to church we went- my DS and I. DS is 8 yrs old, he made me promise him that I was going to take him to a Skate Park so right after church at 12:30 we went. I couldn't take him out of there until 2:30 pm (EST) and came back home to quilt. Finally! I forgot to post my goals but today I needed to sew two blocks for a Quilt for Quilters I signed in. It is a controlled scrappy in lilac pieced in the middle and applique on the boarders. So far I have cut the 2 1/2 squares, at least for the sample and sew some 3 patches together. I will post a picture if I am able to sew at least 2 blocks.
    It is 5:40 here in Florida so I don't have much more hours to sew. It is great to know you are out there sewing with me!
