    Thanks for the comments, girls. :-) I hope to show some more finishes to you. It's fun to share with a group that understands the efforts of our hobby.

    My daughter-in-law's doctor put her on bed rest for the last three months of her pregnancy. She's finished one month, just two more to go. I'm planning to sew a log cabin type quilt for her in the next weeks, and get in the mail to her before too long. That's the next project that will keep me busy.

    Let's see pictures of the flowers, wedding gown, TicTacSew, etc.! :-)

    I have a couple of pictures of the bride in her dress, from the fitting, but I'm under oath not to show it! Her mother would have an absolute bird if I showed it on the internet. LOL.

    Here is my Friendship Quilt, tho:

    Oh, I just meant the dress, not the girl. :-)
    I like your choice of a darker brown for the setting. Looks nice!

    Well we are finally back home. Dh went into the hospital there the night before we were going to come home. He was dismissed this morning( finally after a 2 hour wait) and DD drove us home and rode with cousin staying here, back to almost the Iowa border where her husband is picking her up. Dh's system refused to urinate and caused him extreme pain. Bryan East put in a caterer(?) which will return until his appointment on the 17th; cousin is coming back to take him as I have an appointment with the skin cancer doctor again. Oh, it is soo good to be home again! Had a good time with DD and family. Will see our doctor tomorrow on wellness report and probably talk about Dh time in the hospital.

    Givio, what a lovely orange quilt. So warm and cozy. Love it. SBG, you amaze my with your work.

    Thanks!
    Not a great photo of the Friendship quilt. The blocks look washed out against the brown. In real life the brown is not that dark and the blocks look brighter. Also, those yellowy colors are actually pretty lime greens! I love it.

    Dh illness is on going until he sees the specialist on Tuesday and see what he proposes to do. They may or may not operate and remove the tissue build up from an operation 15 years ago. And I will be going to my skin cancer doctor the same day. Home Health care nurse was just here to help with DH...and take down more information. Glad she came by and looking forward to seeing her on Monday.

    After I get the house straightened around I hope to get into my sewing room. Hoping to hear from GrannyQ, hope she posts today.

    Washed the guest room linen, and will be making the bed again today. Cousin Mary and Robert will be back Monday to help out again. They have been great help....Mary just says, "Well, we are family and family helps out." I guess making her a quilt paid off and established a good relationship. I feel blessed in their friendship and help.

    Hi everyone, had my eye surgery last Monday, the doctor told me it might be a couple of weeks before I can see good. Thank qoodness for my children. Today Daughter took me to get groceries this morning. After going out there is no way I can drive yet. My sight is like looking through a fog, it is much better today than it was tuesday . Lots, and lots of eye drops, some I get the first time and sometimes I end up washing my face with them. I can see some things that look more colorful. I have 2 plants that I thought were the same color of blooms, but yesterday I could see that one is more pinkish instead of red. My glass really don't do me much good now, but that is to be expected. Thank you everyone for you well wishes for me. Hopefully I can get back to sewing.

    Thank you, GrannyQ, for letting us know how you are doing. Looking forward to seeing more green blocks in the future posted here. I am driving short distances only, and caring for DH.

    Doing some housework in my 'spare' time. Baby steps.

    So sorry about your DH QNS! Hope everything turns itself around soon. GrannyQ - hang in there, I'm sure your vision will improve. I think sometimes these things take time.

    I am excited. I joined a guild yesterday. The one in Brownwood. An hour drive is worth it.

    Good for you Dublb. Enjoy your quilting guild.

    Quilter 65 drove me to DM yesterday, and they took four samples yesterday to test for skin cancer and made an appointment for April. If any test positive, then we will be going back to have the whole thing removed. We (Quilter 65, Cousin Mary and I) did a stop at Red Lobster and at Quilt Block. I bought Laura A. Hird's book the Bible. And Better Homes and Garden top quilt shops of the year magazine.

    Cousin Mary's husband, Robert took DH for his appointment. Disappointing news, he has to wear the catheter longer until the 7th of November...and let the 'miracle' pills work their magic according to the specialist who explained everything to him. Better than ending up in the emergency room.

    Robert and Mary have returned to their home to get caught up there; hoping they can come back soon. Enjoyed their visit and appreciated their help.

    The wooden Grace Frame Z44 is put together. Dh refashioned the clog wheels and it seems to work. Off to do a little house work and maybe in the QR a while. Have a good week.

    Sew glad to hear you active in the quiltroom again QNS...What a treat to have some company, too. Hope positive news comes from test results.

    I enjoy the contacts I have made in my guild, dublb...Enjoy

    Hopefully GrannyQ, you will be back in your sewing space, too.

    I'm supposed to be paying bills...and what's for dinner?

    My progress...house quilt is starting to come together...then detoured as I need to destash...cleaned out books and magazines yesterday..eliminated a small bookcase....so cut my library in half. Then did some fabric reorganization. Still chaos in some spots, but it's coming..

    okay back to work!

    Wow, I'm impressed with the progress you all are making. Glad you found a guild, Bev. It's so much fun to meet and work with other quilters. QNS, you'll soon be saving money on longarming, it sounds like. I am buying a small Grace starter frame to put my Juki on. It only has a 9" throat space, but it will still be better to get my charity quilts done faster with a frame. I've done a little longarming on friends' machines, so I think I'll be okay.

    Is there any one else interested in doing Laura Aaron Hird's fourth book: The Bible? I am going to try it, even if it is a solo flight. Has anyone started a group for that quilt? It is 6 inch finished blocks and looks very similar to what we have done on three trails (or less) together. I did not want too until I seen the book and it is doable, I think.

    Oh my... don't look my way! I still have my FW30's blocks all sitting in a stack! And I jumped into the Pony quilt and need to get back to it. I've collected enough pony fabrics to make ten pony quilts.

    I will love watching your progress on the Bible quilt, QNS. Hope someone else wants to join you.

    I bought the new LH book, mostly because I just wanted to read it and see what blocks she chose. It's sort of a back burner type idea for me, or just a book to use for single blocks in other applications. I still have the FWS blocks to put together, and lots of PC blocks I can make, which if I get around to either of those, then I'll post them here, because the FWS threads we were using before don't seem to be available anymore.

    QNS, if I get the energy up for it, I might coast along and do some blocks if I see some pictures to inspire me. :-)

    I still have to put my FWS blocks together, too. We can keep each other company. Hoping I will get it together next year!

    I have the book but I have to finish this sampler that I am working on right now & then my PC quilt. I do love the blocks that Laurie has in the Bible book. Isn't she a genius to add Hourglass blocks in between to make 'em look like they are set on point?

    Yes I like that technique too... I made Bonnie Hunter's Chunky Churndash pattern and it also used the hourglass alternate blocks to make the churndashes appear to be on point. Great idea.
