    Here's what's been happening in this part of the world ....
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2he3gF5uSM
    And I think many of the rest of you have the same!!
    So, as a result, I have been away from the computer a lot as my office is the hottest room in my non-a/c home! The good news is that my sewing room is in the walk out basement, so lots of light, and nice and cool. Sadly, no PC, as I've been trying to get
    Monty the Mountie finished for Canada Day. Being that is today, I might get it done just in time ... if not, for tomorrow, being that it's the Stat Holiday!

    Glad to see that many are enjoying their USA fabrics via Canada! And am excited to see the interest in representing all countries in our quilts. I'll look forward to seeing how everyone chooses to honour each!

    JanRN ... great combo of the fabrics ... it really makes the friendship star pop out. John's Fav is mine too ... great FC to show those birdies. When you do your quilting, do you mark your lines on first? or just go at it? Nice quilting!

    MiraB ... glad the move is over. Now you can get serious on your move into your new room! It'll be exciting to start fresh with your sewing room, and organize accordingly. And think of all the things you are finding!! More projects, right? Good plan, one hr sewing, one sorting! And a pretty pale blue block you have made. Your July 4th block really epitomizes the USA!

    OKSGlad ... YIKES! for the Grands comments ... you'll have to give them a lesson on diplomacy!!

    DDamsel .. as always yours look so delicate. I think some lace would work in nicely with your quilt. Borders?

    Mirabelle - Lovely blocks! I still love those roses! It does make it easier not ta miss your DS if ya have a new sewin' room. When ya miss him, just go & sew.

    Ggal, beautiful blocks from you as expected-you never disappoint! Your star stands out so nicely and I love the floral fabric you used in JF.
    QE thanks for the compliments (and the fabric). I'm very anal--I can't just "wing it"--I have to draw all my lines on my blocks and then stitch over them. FMQ?? Not for this control freak LOL.

    GGal ... a grand pair! Love the starry sky in your 4th July. Or are they white fireworks? Looks so nice with your sashings/cornerstones.

    JanRN .. Nothing wrong with markings. You really do a nice job and I like the unique designs that you use for each.

    Thanks everyone for the wondeful sentiments, I haven't had time to miss him as he is only 3 streets away and seems to pop in a lot when he is not working. I had better get a wriggle on and get next weeks blocks done. I can't really move in to my new room yet as I am waiting on the carpet cleaners to come, hopefully tomorrow but I haven't heard back from them for confirmation.
    DH will be home on Wednesday so better do some grocery shopping, he might want me to cook

    Happy 4th of July all of you...my neighbor here in NC has been away and for some reason I couldn't get online.....The heat here has been oppressive....heat index of 116...just horrible... I haven't seen your blocks..the photos won't come up...as in the past they have all been great...I actually get my inspiration from you guys...seeing what colors and fabrics being used...I have my July 4th done and it certainly is sparkly....I hope you enjoy the fireworks...H.

    Love your block, Anne-very patriotic and well done.
    Hope you're feeling better. Had to take Patches to the vet and he got the same treatment you did--steroids and antibiotics. I should have purchased "pet insurance"--I could get 10 rx's for the price of one of his. This heat isn't helping either; we need rain so bad. Take care and stay inside (and sew LOL).

    Love your block, Anne. All the lovely blocks make my fingers want to start the block. Not half done on Chains of Love, so sigh, it will wait a bit.

    John had to have a dog; a boy and a dog just go together as friends.
