    DSIL cleaned the a/c for us, but I still had to call the repairman,...BUT, it still saved me 100-150.00!
    So all in all, I got a wonderful gift from my dd's hubby.
    I joked with him that he did such a good job, that I should have him marry one of my daughters :XD:
    House got cooled off in a short time,...went and got my wee ones, and they were happy as clams!
    We had a blast and bought movies and had a pajama party :D :D :D
    This evening we took dd and dsil out to eat.
    Couldn't afford not to ;-)
    I did get some fabric time and I will have some more tomorrow...woo hoo...the week ends on a good note :XD:

    Lesley your finished quilt is stunningly beautiful. I just knew it would be - love your borders, all the extra embroidery, flowers and hearts with ribbon simply ties it all together.

    Kathy, I just love the sharks tooth border, I have looked in vain for fabric that would be suitable but no joy yet, I might copy your idea if all else fails. I was looking at the block border on Little Brown Bird but I like yours better, stunning so far and thank you for sharing the tutorial which is great fo those of us who might copy.

    The fabric I found wasn't all that "WOW" sitting on the shelf on the bolt, but I picked it up anyway, unrolled it out & laid the center on top of it. It just sang! Now I just have to figure out how to do the border that faces the opposite way - correctly without all the "variations" of the first one! :|

    My computer was running very slow and I hit the update button twice and my message appeared twice. I guess that means your quilt is doubly beautiful.

    Jolo, I will definitely pray for your son. My middle daughter is also undergoing chemo for cancer and I ask for prayers for her as well.

    Thank you ladies. I am a great believer in the power of prayer. I know my DD will be encouraged when I tell her that you are praying for her.

    Prayer is what got us this far. He was dxd in June last year and Drs amazed he went into short remission. I know it can happen again with prayer.

    Finished my outer Border, applied the last applique piece on Nov 3_ 2011, now working on how it will be quilted, without touching the applique pieces, don't expect to have it quilted and the binding attached until after Xmas and the New Year, will post the final picture at that time.

    Haven't figured out how to add pictures yet, can anyone direct me where to find help on this?

    Donna, if you look at top of the quick reply box, there is the one icon that looks like a picture. It is te third from the right. Click on it and you can browse and upload your photo.
    One thing you will have to resize it before you can attach, since it is too big from the camera and this board can't adjust size automatically. Hope this helps.

    Oh Donna, no laughing although I did laugh at myself eventually, lol.
    Ok so the quick reply box is the one at the bottom of the screen. Does yours have icons on the top? If not, click go advanced and You should see icons one of which is to post pictures. If you hover your mouse over the icons it tells you hats they are for. I think the size of the picture is too big from the camera though, so remember to resize it a bit smaller to post. Hope this helps.

    Oh and if you want to have icons at the Quick Reply box underneath the post, you can go to your Settings next to your name at the top right ---> look at he left column---> General Settings----> and in there you can change a few things one of which under Misc. Change it to the Enhanced version.

    Hope all of this helps
