    WOW on the flowers, QNS! So many pretty irises, and the peonys are gorgeous. My aunt used to have peony bushes on either side of her front steps. The bushes were old and huge. Hers were pale pink.

    All that COLOR to enjoy...

    Hi friends, remember me lol? I pop in now and again to catch up with yinz but haven't posted in awhile. I love yinz all and miss chatting. I haven't done any sewing in 3 months--and I used to sew at least 4 hours per day. I need to get my inspiration and drive back. Had the flu in March for 7 days and it took me forever to feel myself again. Funny--I worked 40+ years as a nurse, never had a flu shot, had people coughing and hacking on me daily and I never got the flu. I retire and look what happen lol!!! We also have been doing some remodeling and painting so sewing room becomes the catch-all place for anything that's moved.

    Hopefully my sewing muse will return soon. I think of all of you fondly and wish you all peace & joy!!!

    Too bad we aren't still doing a sew-along together. Who was it that was going to do the Gypsy Wife quilt? Was it Honchey?

    Givio and I are doing the civil war blocks BOW called Rest and Refreshing. They are fun and I have a big stash of CW fabrics. There's a QAL thread, if anyone wants to check it out.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/quiltin...t-t287811.html

    OK has posted in the thread, but we've yet to see a block from her... The main thing is to sign up for the weekly block downloads. They are only free for one week, and then they become $.99 each. Some people are making the blocks up in Christmas fabrics, or contemporary florals, or whatever... not all are using CW fabs. The blocks are pretty and help us tune up our piecing skills!

    So sorry your husband lost his best friend, Bev!

    Hope you can still enjoy the wedding. Two of life's milestones... weddings and funerals.

    JanRN how nice to hear from you. Sorry you have lost your 'muse' to sew. Hope you have been having fun with your HS friends and other retirees. I am busy with UFOs....trying to finish projects already started. Now If I can continue not to get involved with new projects, I just might finish a few. LOL!

    Dublb, weddings are fun, funerals you re-unite with friends and family not seen since the last one. I hate Houston traffic.

    Going through paper work, discarding, shredding, and filing papers, looking for a password used on a tablet/pad I sent to DD... I think I might have shred it already, but closely checking out papers for it. without it or the 'card' that was supposed to be with it, it is junk. It was a free-bee with my computer, so no big loss on it. Wal Mart hands the Vulcan brand, so I may ask how much a 'card' for it costs.

    Yes, SBG, our former leader did talk about the Gypsy Lady. I think Honchey got too tired of the postings and had other things on her mind. I hope she is having fun. Maybe she lost her 'muse' to sew, too.

    With regard to the 'Rest and Refreshing' Civil War Sampler quilt, when she sends the link each week to your email account, and you go to get the pattern download, you find that she also offers you the previous pattern download, in case you missed it. So, you really have two weeks to get it free.

    ...It's not like we really need more patterns! lol And it's just an ordinary type pattern: 10" blocks with sashing, set on point, with a simple pieced border. But, it's fun to do it with other people. It's like when we did the FWS blocks together-- it's fun to see what other people did with the same pattern and how they used their own choice of fabrics. That's the key for my sewing it-- I like to do it with others, and see what pictures they post.

    Here's how my blocks are so far, if you are not lurking on the thread in the Challenge forum and have seen them there...

    Lovely job, Givio.

    To see the latest from quilter 85 go to http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...o-t288346.html where she has done an animal quilt...Mother and young baby...enhancements on each one and gives close ups of them. Very charming and lovely work. Wows me with detail and skill.

    I wanted to say hi to everyone. I just went back to catch up a bit on reading, but I am sure I didn't go back far enough. It is in the 80's today. I have had to stay out of the sun. Me and hubby went to a high school graduation last week, and the sun then did a number on me. It's just how it is. My son and daughter in law have went on vacation this past week, so me and hubby in the evenings have went to their house to check on their two dogs for food and water, and their chickens. I have only been sewing on a quilt I am trying to restore for my brother in law who ask me too. His grandma made it for him a long time ago. She raised him along with his dad. Me and hubby are doing about the same. Nothing much new. Miss all of you. It was so nice going back and reading what all of you have been up too. We have had some thunderstorms. I love the rain, but big thunderstorms with high winds I can do without.
    Hugs to all of you, and you all are always in my prayers. Have a great week ahead.

    Givo, your blocks are lovely!
    OH & June Billy, it is great to hear from ya.
    The wedding went well today. The reception was real nice in DSis's back yard. DH cooked some of his BBQ Chicken & there was Ham & Brisket also. OH & all the fixings! I am worn out though. After it was over #2DSon came to the hotel room so we got to spend some time w/him. I miss him the most as he was the last one to leave. Heck, we left him!

    Hey Ya'll. I am getting ready to paint my dinning room. We got everything off of the wall & today got all the cups (that had been on display shelves) packed up. I saw an article in the American Handyman magazine about using hardboard taped together instead of a drop cloth. I think we are gonna get some of that to put down & protect my new floor. Means a trip into town first. I also need to get every thing clean. Grrrrrrr I hate cleaning. At least DH will help me w/the prep work. )I really don't want his help on the actual painting as I would just have to redo it when he wasn't looking.

    Hi everyone! We are finally back home. We were gone 5 weeks to Nevada, Arizona, Utah and Idaho. We helped our good friends that moved to Idaho a year ago move into a new home they purchased. We did not have WIFI most of the trip, and when we got home about a week ago, I wondered why I had no updates from the Quilting Board. I guess I somehow got logged out of the Quilting Board, and I guess that is why I had no updates. Anyway, we had a wonderful trip and I was glad to see my sewing room again. The little sewing machine I carry in the RV did not want to run very well, and I think it is because it had not been used in about a year. I took it apart and oiled it, then could not get it to fit back together again, so the needle was hitting the edge of the plate. UGH I finally could sew (I took some stuff to work on), and never was able to get the sewing machine back together to sew. I think I'll take it back apart and try to get it back together before resorting to a repairman.

    I have gone back to the last time I logged in, and read all the updates. Looks like everyone's gardens are doing well, and the flowers are beautiful!!! My tomatoes that I planted before I left have grown really bit, and the tomatoes on them are a good size, but still green. The blackberry bushes are producing a daily supply of blackberries, and I have had some I could even freeze.

    I am working on my UFO's - several quilts that need to be put together, and more that need to be quilted. One of my fabric purses finally started to look really shabby, so I am making a new one to replace it.

    Bev, good luck with the painting.... That's something we need done here too, but I just can't bring myself to start.

    Jeanie, welcome home traveling lady! Sounds like you saw a lot of different places, how fun! Sorry your machine conked out on you. I'd be tempted to stop by some yard sales and scout for an oldie to sew on in the mean time. Hope you can get yours fixed.

    Well, We didn't find any hardboard that wasn't so expensive. The magazine said that it would be around $5 a sheet but it is around $10 a sheet & I would not only need 6 sheets but would have to drive either 55 miles or 75 mines to get it. So I guess I am gonna look into craft paper.

    Dublb, we bought flooring covering cloth from Wal Mart, like a large tarp, and it worked fine in our new home in Texas. Easy to move from down stairs to up stairs. Good luck with all that prep and painting.

    JeanieG, what a trip you had, wow! I have cousins in Idaho and it is beautiful country. Hope you have success at putting your machine back together again. And I wish you success on your UFOs...I am trying to work on mine.

    A few more flowers from our homestead. Wisteria tree, Wisteria vines, Heirloom Roses, and one perennial bed.

We have a number of Heirloom Roses that are very hardy and withstand our winters here in zone 5. DH does the up keep on them now...my part is to take the pictures for him. LOL! Enjoy, may it brighten up your day.

    Oh, my word!! It got that big in 11 years??! If I had only known! I thought it took much longer to grow a wisteria. That is just drop down gorgeous!

    It's so nice to read everyone's updates.

    My DIL that lost her little girl a while back is pregnant now. We pray all goes well and there is happiness with a new little one. My other DIL is expecting in June, so time to get a baby quilt sewn. I plan to make one with my sister as she likes to contribute to the project. She doesn't have any grandchildren, just grandnieces and nephews, so I like to sew the baby quilts with her help.

    Our wisteria did their "showing off" back in March. We had a warm snap and they all bloomed. Then a cold snap, warm snap, cold snap.... this is spring in Mississippi, usually! All that purple is sure gorgeous!

    Givio, how wonderful to have a sister to quilt with. And I'm so happy for the grieving couple to have a new baby to look forward to. I know that will be a joy for all of you. You are so blessed with all these sweet babies coming!

    Today is hubbys and my 32nd anniversary. Feels like yesterday that we got married up on the mountain in a botanical garden on Maui. Lots of ups and downs since then, but we made it! Still together and still loving each other!

    A happy day to all... it's gorgeous here today.
