    I am making the same quilt and DD is spending the day at home tomorrow and we are going to try and get some of mine made. DD tweaked the pattern a little and it looks nothing like the original.

    It's good to have you back on the chat, I have missed you
    Thanks MiraB for the Welcome Back! ... more of what what I have missed!
    I was thinking maybe Jamestown was a machine ... eventually I;ll catch up on old threads.
    And imagine, I got your DD and DH switched around ... so used to your DH coming and going that I did not read carefully.

    It;s good to be back ... sort of ... just wish that I could be back and SEWING!!!!!!!

    QuiltE that's ok, DH has been home for the past few weeks, he had to use up some of his holiday leave. He has trimmed all the trees and palms and tidied up our yard while he has been home. We are getting ready for the wet season. He goes back to work on Wednesday and life will return to normal for me.

    I'm sure you were glad to have him home for a spell .... and as you said, now life can resume to normal, and you can find more quilting time!
    Poor guy ... that almost sounds like you're glad to see him gone!! Oh Oh!!!!!!!!!!

    Honchey--I really like your fabric choices! Very pretty block.

    Mirabelle--I think your roses will work out just fine in your finished quilt...also agree with Ggal that the light blue is a nice touch.

    That's ok QuiltE, I must admit (not to him though) that I enjoy the peace and quiet while he is at work and most importantly next to no cooking and cleaning and washing etc etc oops you didn't hear me say that



    Roll on Wednesday

    I'm sure at times you must feel you live two lives .... the single woman, foot loose and fancy free! ... and then when he comes home, back to being married! The problem being that you have more time on your own, and thus, when he comes back, it seems like an interruption to the norm! Poor Guy ... though I'm sure he understands!

    We have been married almost 35 years so I am sure he understand me by now, and we have been living this life for almost 10 years, when he is home he goes fishing a lot or potters in the garden, he caught some nice fish this time, mainly barramundi. We have always had seperate interests and hobbies.

    A good match, that's been working for a long time!
    Here's to many more happy years together, for the two of you!!

    honchey, i love your fabric choices... very nice block

    (NB, have a look at the 'claws' on the bottom right block, bottom row... you have them the wrong way around dear)

    Mirabelle--looks like a very good catch. I showed my son (12 yrs, the fisher in our family) and he said "those are some nice fish!" Then said he thought they looked like bass. We had to look up some more pictures of barramundi. He just brought up a catfish (~3lbs) from the river. I guess he thought we needed to fill the spot in the freezer from lunch today.

    Honchey...I saw the ingrown too but had to look hard to find it. I don't think the doctor is necessary!

    Great looking fish! Boy that keeps the larder full! Lucky you have such a good source and a DH that loves bringing them home! Your block turned out beautiful, Mirabelle.
    We do miss your blocks, Dubib but I know how life happens. So happy that you're getting rain in Texas.

    Pretty, pretty blocks everyone--I love the fabrics in all of them. Um, Anne, I never noticed your turned points; I guess I was galloping by too fast on my pony (or jackass LOL).

    Great lookin' fish, but I'm sorry, this city gal prefers in a box that says Mrs. Paul's fishsticks!

    Yeaaaa Jeanie .... those horses look like they're charging right thru. The tan and brown on the points is really effective. And oh so soft and pretty for the 2nd block!
