    With DH off to NC hopefully you'll get some sewing time. 70 blocks along-wow. I agree, though, what was I thinking but then I remember that FWS was 111 blocks. What were we thinking LOL??

    Blocks are done, need to photograph and post tomorrow. Adjusting for DD and GS visit, clearing out the guest room, and re-arranging quilt room. Installed new kitchen screen door (the kind that slams shut) and painted it old brick red with DH, and worked with him outside to promote quineas to a larger wide open former dog run to roost in overnight. Put wire over the top and roosts in, with food and water in and they walked into it like it was about time we presented them with a new home. They cooed their thanks and went to roost. No eggs yet from the pullets...gotta talk to those girls...about gettin' down to doing their job.

    No blocks here yet. I'm in mourning. Today DH and I drove 200 miles for my dear aunt's funeral, the aunt I was named after. She lived a wonderful 92 years having a life some of us only dream of. But my heart is still sad for she is the last of my mother's siblings and a chapter closes in my family's history.

    So sad to hear of your loss Oksewglad, but you will always have her in your heart.

    No blocks from me yet, I have just finished cutting out Patience Corners so I am off to start sewing..

    So sorry, Oksewglad, for your loss. Can you do some memorial quilts in her memory, at least, for you? And you will cherish her memory in your heart, I am sure.

    OKsewglad...so sorry for your loss. I remember when I became the oldest generation in the family. A very sobering moment.

    Thank you for your words of sympathy. Oh a trip around the world is the quilt to make and must include some Oriental prints.......She was a career Army Nurse. As small children we learned about our world from where she was stationed and the gifts she would send.

    OK - I really feel for you, one of my uncles is not doing well at all! I have one uncle (age 92) left on my mom's side and one uncle (age 82) left on my dad's side! Talk about the "older" generation - I am now there. I was the oldest grandchild on my dad's side also, and my youngest cousin is 39. I have kids older than that! I am sure making a quilt in her honor will be a cherished memory of her.

    Thanks, Jeanie. I think a mini TATW is the ticket. For her 90th BD I made her this little quilt. She loved it.

    Use Picassa (a free google program). You can crop in that, and then use the resize feature to shrink the original so you can upload it to the Quilting Board.

    This is now my messy sewing room. I have spent the day cutting 840 triangles in blue and 840 in cream, tomorrow I tackle the pile of purple fabric.
    I spun the ironing board around so I could embroider and cut at the same time, (I'm left handed). The go cutter has certainly been working overtime today.

    All I can say is that I hope your DD appreciates how much you love her to do all the cutting for her quilt even if you used the go cutter! That's a lot of cutting. BTW, she chose lovely fabric.

    Yep, it looks like prep for a Bonnie (Quiltville) quilt. She loves those HST! Except she usually give us a week to cut and sew them.

    hey all, sorry I have been missing the last few weeks. I just got Dh back from Australia a few days ago. the wedding went PERFECT!!! I have been working on the wedding quilt, it has thousands of one inchers I will share photo when I get them layed out next. I also made a crochet afghan for brides parents since I couldnt meet them, which they LOVED
    my son had his cast removed and seems to be back to business with life, he still needs to work with it more, do some therapy. my sister is here to help me for a bit, I was hoping she would help me get caught up on cutting out PC blocks, but she brought her quilt she wants me to help her with... so we will see

    I am EXCITED about the bonus blocks! thinking..... barbed wire

    LOL, DD!! So funny. Aren't you lucky to have a sis to sew with? Mine was here for a week (hadn't seen her for about 4 years) and we spent lots of time in the sewing room sharing ideas. We had a PP lesson too.

    Thanks Ggal, my DS came over for dinner with me and after he went home I was on the phone with DH when a car pulled into my driveway and it was my DD, she drove home (about 1 1/2 hours) to spend the night with me. It was a lovely surprise and we went out for lunch on Saturday

    Happy Birthday to everyone having a birthday this month.
