    May I join you in the RV and bring along some honeysuckle white tea? I'm sure QNS has the water boiling. My DDIL just sent it to me and I haven't had a chance to try but it sounds good.

    Gee, it seems I am always in 'hot' water!! Love tea, have a Mrs.Tea set...with the tea pot. When we moved from 'in town' Corpus Christi to the Flour Bluff area...our all electric neighborhood lost power for several days right before Christmas...but we had moved our small camper into our driveway. Right, we had 'hot' water free of charge for the whole neighborhood to enjoy their morning coffee!!

    Bring your favorite tea to the virtual RV, and enjoy the call of the guineas, the quack of the ducks, and the cackle of the hens laying their eggs and singing their songs. So you will can enjoy the sanity of your homes upon return!!

    Sounds like a nice relaxing morning. Glad I can join you for a few minutes before heading to town to run errands and go to a birthday party/open house.

    I finished the border on my friend's quilt and also the quilting/binding on the runner for my grandparents. I think I am all done with stuff for other people for a while. I have my next Rosie block all laid out for sewing today. Next on the list is bonus blocks. I will alternate with BBs and Rosie blocks until both are finished.

    Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    I'll bring my coffee machine, can't start my day without a hit of caffeine. I plan on spending the whole day in my sewing room, just have 3 more rows to piece and I am on to the borders for Jamestown Landing. JeanieG how are you going with Easy Street, the sewing seems straight forward.

    Is anyone making New Years resolutions, I make one every year to only shop from my stash last year I lasted 4 months before purchasing fabric and of course I had a good excuse Maybe we will go for 5 months for 2013..

    It has been a very easy start to Easy Street. Honchey, gardnergal and I are doing it. Bonnie said this is suppose to be an easier quilt to make, and she is doing another one starting in March through Quiltmaker Magazine. That will go over several issues, so if anyone is interested it will be a slower process than this one. Instead of 150 hst at a whack, this one is 64. The colors are out of my comfort zone though! I'm not into bright colors!

    Snow quiet today.
    Feathers softly floating down.
    Nature's quilt

    LOL--Went to GS's BB tournament yesterday--team placed second. While in the host town stopped at a favorite LQS; so much for fabric moratorium. Just one month at a time mirabelle. Actually bought nice flannel to make GD nightgown for her and her Am Girl doll as well as a great piece for the back of the Gpa shirt quilt. As the other Gpa shirt quilts get done going to go there for backings as she has a great selection of flannels and brushed cottons perfect with color palette of the shirts.

    Here's a mini TATW I finished for DIL birthday yesterday. 169 different 1" squares were used--first time I mitered corners--strippy red fabric just called out for mitering.

    OksewGlad, you can keep the snow...nature's quilt...its fun to watch, not fun to drive in although we have many times in our life...

    I love your little quilt you made. Also love Carrie's work too. Makes me want to get back into the quilt room.

    The third credit card that I carry was hit...I had warned the company I had two hits...joined a security watchdog company for a while until everything gets straightened out. Again, this company contacted me; I was blessed that all three were caught by the company and I was not stuck with a big bill. Inconvenient to do without the bank check card, but I will write the checks out for awhile. Guess its that time of year that people are tempted to steal...more so than non holiday time.

    Back on my feet after a good night's rest, drinking my tea....happy you all brought yours in join me in the virtual RV. Sunshine is bright inside the RV...'cause of friendship and compassion of the PC quilter's group. Pat yourself on the back, you are the best!!

    QNS...what a nightmare with your cards! I hope you get it all straightened out and stay safe. Thanks for all your hospitality.
    Bev...glad you could stop by. How are you holding up?
    oKSewGlad...you little quilt is so cute. I've been working with 1 3/4 inch blocks and they are small enough for now. I've really been enjoying Bonnie Hunter's scrap system and ocassionally watching her on quilt cam. Fabric abstinence is very difficult. Glad you found the perfect backing for Emily's and yours quilt.

    It's like a yo-yo. I go from deep cryin' for the littlest li'le thing, ta relived that DMIL is not hurtin' & confused anymore. Th'sevenin' I'm also feelin' a bit better 'cause we had supper at #1 DSon & DDIL's house. It made me feel loved & full.

Size:  50.8 KBPeanut Butter cookies, Buffalo Chips, Chocolate Cowboy, and white looking front cookie is called Billy Goat. Couple or three more kinds...this afternoon, and try to ship tomorrow. Meanwhile inhale the smell in the virtual RV with your coffee, tea, or soft drink. So it is really the "last call" for PC riders wanting a care package. I am having so much fun...thank you all for sending me a PM.

    Mmmmmm...it's almost lunch time and I'm hungry. I can smell those cookies here in western PA. Would go so well with my hot tea.

    I went to the post office this am. What a crowd! I thought I was mailing early but I guess everyone else did too. I went to a little tiny po--probably only 10 x 18, and I am so claustrophobic thought I'd start hypeventilating. Everyone was real chatty and friendly so time spent in line was actually fun. Postmaster reminded us that postage goes up (again) after the first of the year.

    I got a question for ya'll. Is it dinner or super?
    In my family, if it is a big meal at the noon hour it is Dinner & the evenin' meal is Super. Dh's side o' the family the evening meal is Dinner & the noon meal is lunch, no matter how big or small it it. DDIL also says Dinner is the evenin' meal.
    What do ya'll call it?

    just call me and I'll eat! There is no explaining what good food is called by looking at the clock.

    On the farm, noon meal was dinner; in the evening, it became supper. I think fast food and others serving food places starting the "lunch" for noon meal, and dinner for evening meals. Dinners cost more, lunch was fast for working persons, smaller portions, fixed quickly, so they could get in and out. It did get me confused teaching in the cities where lunch was noon meal and dinner was evening meal...but I adapted to whatever...never missed a meal, I guess, for dh size and mine is the large economy size...compliment to any cook...Love good FOOD.

    QNS--cookies look yummy! We are having a cookie exchange at our church for just the ladies next week...everyone brings 3-5 dozen cookies and then takes home that many of each of different kinds. We will have a prayer time and devotional. This is the 2nd one; last year it was a very peaceful time. Your variety has given me some new ideas!

    Dublb--at our house, the middle meal is lunch and the evening meal is supper. It can be confusing when someone invites you for "dinner" though...I usually cover myself by asking what time they want us there.

    Here is California (where I was born and raised) it has always been "Lunch" and "Dinner!

    When DH & I had our first Easter we were invited ta my DAunt's house for Easter Dinner. I kept pushin' DH ta git there. He was so confused 'cause I'm always late for things. We got there at 2:00 & Dinner was over. I was crushed. He finally got it. LOL If we are invited for Dinner it is at lunch time.
