    It's pretty quiet here in AOTH land so I guess I'll have to go and finish a quilt that's been haunting me for the past several months!!! :shock: I want to get this thing outta here!!!!! All I have left to do are the borders, and then I can bind it, wash it and send it on its merry way!! :thumbup: :thumbup: YEA!!!!! I'm so tired of looking at it, and I just want it GONE!!!! :D :D

    Catch everyone later!! Hope you all have a great day! 8-) 8-)

    I'm still poking along, but slowly. I'm doing the hand sewing on the blocks at night and currently pulling my hair out quilting something else during the day.

    I'm still waiting to be able to get mine layered and ready for quilting. I stopped temporarily to try and help Flossy with one of her UFO's.

    havent spoken up in a while :( I'm in the midst.... to top of my head!! in being a quilt show chairperson for our guild... the show is in September - and taking care of daughter's health, We are trying to get her into a bechets study at NIH and getting everything together is going to take a while and there is a remote possibility that the medical investigative studies and the show could be close timing wise :shock: :cry: :x ... which would not be good... for her [DD] yes - because it could also take over a year and she is in excruciating pain. :( :|
    so pray ...whatever you do ladies and I may not really get to any of this for a little while. Got square 9 [first one??] completely embroidered last night and have done most of the applique of 8 & 11 but I really should finish SOMETHING for our quilt show...

    should a co-chair have nothing in the show??? at this point nothing is finished!!! :oops:

    wehen I do - you'll be one of the first to see :-D

    Wow, your plate is overflowing!! :shock: I hope everything works out for you and your daughter. I'm not familiar with what she has, but I will do a search so I am better informed. I will pray for her and for you.

    Maybe you could do a few more of the AOTH blocks and put them together for something (a small wallhanging or frame a few of them??) to have in the show. ;) I don't know how it is for you, but I find hand sewing very calming, and right now it seems you could use a little bit of something calming. Sending lots of hugs and lots of prayers your way. ;-)

    slow down, Dee! I'll be back here by myself, LOL! j/j :wink:
    I'll have #9 of the new color scheme finished tomorrow!
    YaY!...then i have these really dripping-with-drool, ideas for #10 and one of my lily pads...must be #11.
    I have to restrain myself from planning ahead too far, bc it makes me work on one, then jump to another, and another...and I don't "produce"!
    I'm having a blast though :XD: :XD: :XD: :!:

    congratulations on a real cutie, dee!
    Is her hair red or blonde?
    she looks long in the blanket...(tall), lol.
    very pretty name.
    ...you know...it wouldn't be unheard of for me to have my map upside down ;-)
    good thing we have a magnetic field in this ball we're walking around on. Keeps us from falling off.

    I'm claiming indirect responsibility for her cute looks but I have nothing to do with the red hair. That comes from DIL whose a strawberry blonde.

    She was 7lb 15 ozs, can't remember how long (does that make me a bad nanna?).

    nope! I couldn't remember lengths either. You got all the important stuff right, and she looks like an 8 pounder.
    Got those cute, squishy cheeks you want to ge-ently squeeze,...and then she smiles...lol. ;)

    Spoiled rotten already. I can't walk past a cute toy and am sewing burp cloths between trying to get some work done on my AOTH blocks.

    Who knew that these days with everyone using disposable diapers no-one has a handy cloth to throw over their shoulder for burping.

    Well, we are beginning Week #6 with our first block with those scrolls. There are only 4, so you can ease into making them. I did a tute showing how I am handling them. Here is a link to it:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-135357-1.htm

    This week we will make Block #17. I have already posted a pic of mine & here is the link to it. There are some really pretty ones already posted, so if you are having trouble deciding on fabrics, maybe one of these will stir up your imagination.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-108527-10.htm

    Have a productive week. Don't let these scrolls intimidate you. They can be mastered! I was looking at all the blocks today & there aren't really all than many blocks with scolls, so take heart.

    Happy Stitching!

    Have you ever been to the NIH? I had to take my late husband there. What a wonderful place you could not ask for a kinder, caring bunch of nurse's doctors an so on there was not one down hearted person there. An if you have to be sick that is the place to go it is huge and they study the rarest of rare it takes a bit to git in but worth the wait. You hang in there and give your daughter a big hug an tell her it will be here before she knows it. When your in pain time travels so slow you just have to look at the days behind you an count them and find something good in each day as it comes. You will make it. My prayers are with you and your family.
