    SewExtremeSeams - we won't abandon you. You have plenty of time to take care of what sounds quite extreme. Maybe give yourself permission to fabric shop a little to relieve some stress?

    Liz92B - that's exactly what I was asking. If the white fabric was a tone-on-tone fabric or a solid. With the red quilting it will have a lot of depth, being tone-on-tone and still show the quilting. I think we are all looking forward to seeing more progress photos.

    I like how this thread is turning out - some people have finished projects while others are just coming on board or working their way through their projects. Now, we just need a few more international participants.

    On another note: Canadians aren't really known for being overly patriotic but the Northcott Quilts Of Valour Oh Canada line of fabric is selling out all over the place. My LQS has placed a second order and they ordered 2 bolts or more of everything to start with. I think that's great!

    SewExS ... Oh dear! Renos are not the most fun at the best of times. Worse when it isn;t by choice. Though think of how "new" everything will be when you get thru it all. Keep your "Eyes on the Prize" and you'll get thru the upheaval. I was thinking exactly like W4Me .... allow yourself a little FART to help destress!

    ... I hear ya I hear ya ........... I have a date with Monty tonight!!

    Northcott's Oh Canada Line ... it's selling like hotcakes here too! So any Canucks who want it, get it NOW or you may be disappointed!!!!

    That was in no way aimed at you QuiltE. I was really, truly pleased with the status of all the projects here. Is someone feeling guilty for neglecting her mountie friend?

    QuiltE: Mondy's mustache looks quite striking!
    * a FART I have no idea what that might stand for... I am looking forward to brand new flooring in my dining room and kitchen as I do not care for the pergo stuff. I had real old growth hardwood floors for over 2 decades that I loved. And also had tile in one of my kitchens. It should be fun seeing what is available that is easy to care for and hides dirt. We have a farm and stuff walks in all by itself. Occasionally a chicken walks in if we leave the door open. So far, none have left their tracks.

    I have 2 handcranks and 3 treadles in case we are without electricity and plenty of vintage machines to clean if I get bored. But, first thing Friday morning when they start on the roof I am going to the quilt and crafts stores.

    How wonderful - this thread is getting really busy!

    Morelcabin - lovely Canadian wildlife quilt. A full size bed quilt in those colours and using the same appliques would look fantastic. When are you starting? No pressure.

    Works4me - pretty glass candle holders, such tiny detail!

    Liz - you will have a nice fresh and cheerful look with the red and white, and unmistakeably Canadian!

    QuiltingJaguar - really nice quilt, but such sad memories. Can we inspire you to start a light-hearted patriotic quilt?

    SewExtremeSeams - sorry to hear about the damage to your house. I love your approach - walk out, go shopping, leave the chaos to the men!

    QuiltE - love Monty's moustache! Has he been combing it?

    Dublb - we have a jug of yellow roses in the front room and I think of you every time I look at them. Can't you feel a yellow rose quilt coming on?

    Meanwhile, slow progress here... dentists this afternoon... way behind with the gardening...

    SewExS ... Thank you on behalf of Monty!
    FART = Fabric Acquisition Road Trip
    So ENJOY your FART when they start that roof!
    You'll find there's a lot of quilting acronyms used on the QB. Here's a compendium of some that might help you with all the alphabet soup used ...

    Quilter's Dictionary & Acronyms ... a consolidation of previous posts

    Muv ... Yes, combed and well trimmed and groomed to meet inspections! Photo doesn't pic it up, but I mixed thread from a black skein with grey. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed embroidery work, so heaven forbid, I might start something else. Keep nudging all these others, would you? OOPS!! that'd be "enthusiastic encouragement" to quote our fearless leader, W4Me! Better you than I for the dentist's visit today!!!

    DublB ... ♪♪♫ Yes!!!!!!!!! ♫♪♪

    Me? ... work hard in the office today and hope to knock off early and turn this three day weekend into 4-1/2 days!!! Oh how I love my boss!!!!

    SES - It's hard ta do stuff while all o' that construction is goin' on. Ya really have a good attitude.
    dettonlissas - don't ya want ta make something patriotic??? I'm makin' pot holders. Whatever size is fine.
    QE - The MM did strikeagain! Neat mustache! I haven't done any hand embroidery in over 25 yrs. I was really good at it when I did do it. Hand quiltin' came really easy compared ta embroidery. Thanks for the song!
    Muv - That's sweet o' ya ta think o' me. I love my rose bushes. I took that pict. in my avatar several years ago. The yellow rose bush is between 2 red rose bushes.

    Did ya'll know that there was a real Yellow Rose of TX. According ta my Dad she was a prostitute & was in the tent w/ Santa Anna durrin' the siesta. Sam Houston attacked durrin' that siesta & won the war. Daddy told me that she distracted him on purpose. I haven't ever read this in my history books but my Dad said that he learned it in his TX history class.

    I'm worried about my rose bushes. I'm watterin' 'em w/ water from the washin' machine, but don't think that that will be enough.
    We still need rain so very much.
