    Beautiful quilt, QNS! If you posted it before, I missed it. It's lovely. Pretty fabric too and it made such good stack & whacks.

    Thank you everyone. It took me awhile to do it all. It costs me $$$ to have quilted; I was going to sent it to a friend if she paid the LA fee, but she said she didn't have the money and I would have to pay the postage to ship it to her, so I still have the quilt. I will make her a smaller lap quilt when I get time. 'Cause she bragged that she was worth way more than I will ever be worth in a later phone call. I am happy for her, but I cannot afford the loss of expenses or time to 'gift' it to her...guess that is why she has more $s than she can spend in her lifetime. I just have more fabric than I can use up in my lifetime. LOL!

    Must have been Givio that ask about the fabric I used in it.

    I will continue to use it and our kids have another quilt to inherit.

    Oh, it’s just lovely Sue! It makes me happy looking at it.
    DH & went to a board meeting of the Lake Club. It was a mess. I’m glad it is over!
    I’m frustrated today posting from my phone. I do hope to get my computer back soon.

    Gee, daughter and family left on January 14th and we just made up the guest beds today, not admit that we are moving slower in our older age! Dh's cousin and wife may be here tomorrow to play cards with us and his brother will be down on Thursday so I may have to dust a bit.

    Two more rows completed and I will be sewing my Christmas Burg into a quilt and putting a border on it. Hope you have your computer back Dublb.

    It is raining here these days, which is better than snow, I think. Everyone must be very busy in their lives right now, no news is good news is the old saying, and I hope that is true in all your lives right now.

    Just been busy with 2nd grandbaby prep, Sue... I just finished these animals for a mobile my daughter wants to make to hang above her baby's bassinet. I'm also trying to finish a Red Riding Hood doll for a birthday present for DD, so I can send all together. So... haven't even been sewing much, just knitting madly!

    Cute little critters, Bonnie.

    My nephew is graduating from Police Academy the end of the month...I put together a denim quilt for him with some orange police themed fabric on the back...have it quilted and may get the binding on tonight.

    Sunday the Grand girls looked through fabric 10 yo DGS wants to make pillowcases. She found some horse fabric that will work just great and then a rope fabric caught her eye and there's enough cowboy boot fabric left over from big sis's Crazy Pony quilt for cuffs. Does any of this sound familiar QNS? She was so excited! Will share pictures when we get them done!

    Then 13 yo thought she'd like to make pillowcases too and found some fabric...but then recalled the fabric she set aside for Gram to make a quilt for her...well maybe she can make it for herself...of course. She choose the Warm Wishes pattern. We worked in EQ and have enough fabric to make a nice quilt for her with leftover for pillowcases. so on weekends we will be sewing!!

    Oh what a day at work today...customers all day long and I am beat...all for now.

    OK, how fun to be able to sew with your grands! I hope that happens to me one day. They say it skips a generation, so fingers are crossed!

    Tonight I finally finished the Red Riding Hood doll I've been working on for my daughter. It's a birthday gift that she is not expecting. It was an absolute beast to make!

    Wow, SBG, love your little figures. They are all so sweet! Great gifts from the heart.

    OK, sounds like the Grans are enjoying shopping in your stash! When the Lord graces me and adds $$$$ to our budget, I will ship out the boxes to you all. They await patiently under my Grace Quilting frame. Every month seems like things get a little tighter. Still smiling, but the standard cost of living is here and hurting in retirement.

    Sue, who are you sending boxes to? Maybe they would be willing to pay their own shipping? Or perhaps local donation would be simpler? Shipping is so expensive. I just spent nearly $20 to send a small box to my daughter, only 3 hours away.

    So sweet, SBG! Wow you are one great G'ma! I sure hope you wil be able to share your talents with those little girls one day. It's so satisfying.

    Today "no school"...again. DIL slid into the ditch between the two farms last night...ice on gravel roads and rain do not mix. Road graders showed up around 10:00. Maintainers can't go out until the County office sends them. County office is located on nice hard surface roads...not the rural messes we have to deal with...okay...that's enough grumbling. DIL did get to work around noon, so kids on their own again today. Had them here for spaghetti and veggies. Three went home with dad, but the budding sewers stayed and 10 yo got her pillowcases (4), starched, pressed, cut and pinned in the sausage roll ready to sew. Meanwhile 13 yo starched and pressed her fabrics and have about half of her quilt cut out. Little one was complaining she was tired...of course she was it was almost 5:00. The afternoon flew. Hopefully we can continue this weekend.

    Oh another no school day today. Rain, melting snow still affecting country roads (gravel) May have some flooding across roads later, too. What a winter! So guess we will sew today.

    Last night got the binding sewn on denim quilt for nephew. I used a bag of denim jeans on this...yeah! More empty space. I used the same technique as I did on the homespun quilt. It's so "thoughtless" and mindess...in other words...easy. Okay need to get ready to sewers!

    Progress on the Christmas Burg. It will be seven rows down, I think. Two with centers pinned on them are:Name:  DSCN1028.JPG

Size:  112.0 KB So its deciding time, do I want seven rows or not; I could stop with the five by five. Pattern is readable on either way. Loved the snow people and red birds to finish it off on Christmas memories.

    OK, be safe. Snow melting all at once in NE and in Iowa makes flooding on lower plains a reality. Prays for all who is affected by it.

    Thank you, SBG. Question is the five or seven rows?

    Sorry that I haven't been around. My computer is in the shop. DH decided to order a used back up computer. He got it for about a third of the original cost. I don't know when mine will be back from FL but in the mean time I have this one. It has a smaller screen but is better'n my phone! I just got so tired of fighting my phone that I quit posting.
    SBG your knitted figures are so adorable! That is gonna be one spoiled baby. But isn't that what DGK's are for?
    Sue I love your Christmas Burg surround! I guess the question about whether to use 6 or 7 rows depends on how far ya want the drop to be on the bed. I personally love the idea of 7 rows as I like me quilts to drop down quit a bit. It's your quilt so you have to be the one is happy w/it. (Also if you are just tired of making those blocks the 6 rows are enough.)

    I like the symmetry of 5x6, but if you want the quilt long enough to tuck around pillows, maybe seven rows... I'd make 6 rows first and connect them, and then see how I felt about it.

    (Wishy-washy answer, huh?)

    Diplomatic Answers I would say, and thank you ladies. Time will tell the tale, I guess. It is a pattern that is hard to stop on just one more. I laid it across the double bed in the guest room and was surprised by its size. So I am 'auditioning' the next two rows to test it out as 'yes' or 'no'.

    I have cooked too much lately, so we will be eating left overs until everything is gone. Love my Iron Skillet Apple Pie Biscuits,. Use a tube of biscuits dipped in a 1/2 cup of melted butter, then into a brown sugar and spice mixture cinnamon (nutmeg...cloves and ginger optional) and place in 10 to 12 inch skillet or pan. Pour a can of apple pie filling over biscuits, pour any left over butter over it and sprinkle with more brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Quick and easy to do. When finished: You can whip up powdered sugar with butter, cream and vanilla to add over the pan, but its fine without the topping. Just talking about it makes me wanna go make some more. LOL!

    Beautiful bed, QNS! I really like your Christmas Burg Sur. It's so unique. I really like it!

    SBG! What a trip your mobile animals and Red Riding are! You've got real talent! Is that mohair yarn for the sheep? It's darling! Your daughter will be so pleased. I don't see how she couldn't be pleased. :-)

    A lot of chat going on here. I've been under the weather lately, and taking naps during the day, and staying home from work. Nice to read what you've all been up to though. :-)

    Thank you, Giv! Yes, the sheep has a mohair body. Was trying to use yarns that I already had. (I have a yarn stash too, yikes!)

    I hope you are getting a lot of good rest.
