    Yes, Honchey, I hope your knee gets better; I am back on Glucosamine, 1000 mg, over the counter medicine that Dr. Minter put me on to ease the joint discomfort in my knees. It sure helps me.

    As always, beautiful work,
    Ladies!!

    Honchey
    ... so sorry about your knee. Could you sew using your left foot for the pedal? I'd never tried that til recently when I read on a QB thread that many used left for "go", and right knee for lifting the presser foot. I was surprised how fast I adapted to it ... and how much more I am now using the auto-lift.

    JanieW ... oh so perfect, from sedate to whimsey! Great contrasts for both.

    Anael ... LIkewise, whimsey and sedate. Your pinkish mottled is interesting, some yellow peeking thru and almost seems like a tad of green, too.

    MiraB ... just when I think you've shown us some great fabric pairings you come with another. D+D brown and blue is ever so nice. You've really outdone yourself with the FC floral and then the stripes in Elsie's!

    QNSue ... Those Does look like they are on alert for Darts coming their way! Is DublB out a-huntin-and-a-shootin'? I'm hoping to join you with some deer in my D+D block too!

    DDamsel ... So delicate looking!

    Does & Dart almost did me in but I perservered. My Elsie's Favorite is a little wonky. I'm singing the same tune--hope it can be quilted out.

    What a great kickoff to another week.

    JanieW...your EF has such beautiful curves...boys must all like her. And it doesn't look like the D&D's y corners even fazed you.

    Anael...your blocks are also well done. I don't see any puckers and the colors works together great.

    Mirabelle...your blocks take my breath away. I LOVE your fabric choices. They make the pattern sing!

    QNSue...you really dressed up the D&D block...to have an actual doe! EF has a great story. Just add sashing and watch her take the show.

    DDamsel...you did the one being grumbled about the most first and nailed it. Well done.

    JanRN...love the fussy cutting on the EF. What a beautiful frame for the rose. Preservance paid off.

    I've only gotten D&D 3/4 done for the week but it did get 3 quilt tops bordered and off the my friend to LAQ. My deadlines for birthday, anniversary, and wedding were getting too close to procrastinate any longer. Today there is some catch up in the garden and laundry so I'll make no promises. Need to put sashing on the 15 for show and tell next week too.

    What beautiful blocks yinz have made! I thought they were both hard even though Elsie's Favorite looked so easy.
    Just back from spending all day in ER with my mother (she fell Wed am). Still waiting results of MRI on hip; all x-rays negative (thank God) but they gave her IV morphine and she is zonked out. Sent me home so I'm decompressing looking at all your beautiful work.
    I thank you for all the compliments on my block--keeps me motivated to stay with them.

    {{{{{HUGS}}}}} to you JanRN
    ... you need these more than we need any compliments about our blocks!
    Decompress a little now ... and then try to get yourself a good night's sleep!

    Hey Ya'll: I'm so busy this week! I'm determined ta finish my DGS's quilt (I'm putting the binding on now) & I have another cousin in town. They are coming' ta town ta see our DGM. She lives with my DM. The one that is in town this week is the brother of the one that came last month. I'm so glad ta see 'em. Yesterday I got ta babysit my DGS. That was a lot of fun! Is there anything better than Grand-babies?
    Jan - I'm praying for your DM. I'm so sorry. Do ya have any hand work ta do in the hospital while sitting with her? It was what saved me. God be with you!

    Everyone, all your blocks are beautiful this week, as always. I got stumped on D&D, then had it half done, then saw I had put the wrong color in the wrong place. Don't know what Elsie's Favorite will have in store for me. So, I'm getting a little behind. To be honest though, the weather here has been gorgeous and I've been choosing to be outside instead of in the sewing room. But I will get back to it, you all inspire me so much! JanRN, I do hope your Mom gets well soon. I know what it's like, I've been there. Take care.

    Jan, you are in my thoughts and prayers! Hang in there girl!

    I have these blocks cut out and started sewing late last night. Decided late in the evening is NOT the time to do these! LOL Will try again today!

    Termi ... Isn't that annoying when you notice the wrong colour show up! It must be the block, as I did the same, and then had to rrrrrrrrripit!

    JeanieG ... Oh.So.True! Not blocks to do when one is tired ... I know oh so well! Granted when I put the wrong fabric on, it had nothing to do with being tired ... just "stoopidity" on my part!

    QuiltE, it sure is annoying. What I can't understand is why it took me soooo long to notice the mistake. I guess I'm just on automatic.

    I'm heading back to that D+D in a few minutes, and I can only hope that it is more cooperative today!

    Nope, not PP. I just used the templates!

    Yours are both great too QuiltE. Love the deer leaping through you Doe and Darts. Great fussy cutting on Sophie's Favorite.

    Now gotta get busy on next weeks blocks. They look really hard too!
