    Whew! Just got caught up on the last few day's posts. What beautiful quilts, babies, children, flowers, etc.--I love coming here to see what all you've done. I feel like such a slacker. Finished my BB quilt, hope to find camera and get pic posted tomorrow.

    Thank you all for the great pics & conversation.

    Thanks, GrannyQ, for the names that will go will my MB. It came today and I am so delighted with it. Bright spot in my day. Hope to be able to photograph the layout soon.

    The eight little Khaki Campbell brown ducks are growing so fast. So are the Production Red straight run chickens (hoping there is an rooster or two in the group of eight). Khaki C. ducks walk upright almost like penguins; hoping most of them are hens....they average about four pounds each, so about the size of a good fryer chicken.

    Bf was released from the hospital and returned home today...no clues on what happened to her, but they did rule out any heart problem.

    Dh needs help tomorrow; hoping I can escape to the quilt room by noon.

    I went ta the eye Dr taday & he dilated my eyes! I had ta call DH ta come & drive me home. I kept tryin' ta git on the computer but could only stand it for a few min.'s. Dh & #1DSon came home at 5:00 & found me pressin' fabric in the dark. I had all the blinds closed & only 3 lamps on in the house. It didn't seem dark ta me. They then went & got my truck from the Eye Dr.'s parkin' lot. #1DSon then went home. About 8:00 my eyes returned ta normal.
    I've been workin' on the borders o' my PC swap quilt. I've got 2 o' 'em on & am ready ta put the 3rd one on. I won't have enough for the last border so I guess I'll have ta cut some more black & red fabric. I'm actually tired enough ta head ta bed in a minuet. I'll put the 3rd border on first (maybe not miter the corners yet) & then head down the hall.
    Night ya'll!

    Yeah, we have WIFI here at the RV Park. It is on a Navy Base, so I was not sure they would have it. The wind is blowing real bad, so have to stay inside most of the time - and wouldn't you know we are right on the beach! Wind is suppose to diminish tomorrow! Here is hoping!

    So sorry dublb about your MB! Gosh, that block is really lost!

    So many great quilts to see. I agree with Jan - such fun to come here and see what everyone is doing.

    I got all the blocks sewn together for my PC quilt. I'm previewing some fabric for a small 1" or 1 1/2" border and thinking of cutting my pony fabric scraps into 5" squares to go around the quilt as a second border. Do you think that would look neat? I'm thinking of putting 5" squares sandwiched between 1 or 1 1/2" strips in the small border color. I want to use up the rest of the pony fabric!

    Anael ... Prayers and every good wisj for Lil Isa. My Goodness, those gloves have seen a lot of stitches. I've never seen any like those, so I'll have to keep my eyes open this spring. Your quilting is amazing. Do you totally do it as FreeMQ? Or do you draw some of it on first?

    CarrieM ... My oh My ... do you ever stop? Your tabletopper looks huge and the floral border really is perfect. Is that the same fabric that you used for the 4PPs? BB quilt is looking great. Looks like a lot of good times for your kids. The indoor range must be really neat! Archery isn't a big thing here, so I'm learning a lot from you. No one into good ol' American BAseball? Oh how pretty your spring flowers are. I have flowerbeds at the front of my home. Otherwise ... daffodils pop up in the grass, then after they die off, they get mowed down. Periwinkle grows going into the bush. Some other natural wildflowers, and some I have interplanted. And lots of tiger lilies.

    JanieW
    ... PC blocks looking great ... are they stitched together? or just well laid out together? And I think I see a chicken in the top row? What was the verdict as to how many blocks per quilt? Look forward to seeing more pics. When you send us weather, it's about 3 or 4 days later. Indiana does it in about 24 hours!! And if it comes up from Niagara, just a few hours (which means it came from Pennsylvania the day before. So thanks at times) JanieW, JanRN and GGal for sharing. At times I wish you would keep it. Warmer today, with rain. Tomorrow it's supposed to be double digits ... with more rain all week. And then the question remains as to weather it chills for the snow ... or we get more rain!

    QNSue ... oh dear! Will be virtually with you on the 18th.

    JanRN ... good thing you told us you had your BB quilt done or else I was going to say ... Show us what you;ve been up to! So find that camera and take a BUNCH of pics!!! I need to be inspired with that S16 and the tricks it can do!

    JeanieG ... Great progress on your PC. Anything is possible, so just do some auditioning and you'll soon figure it out. But for now, no sewing ... just holidaying with your friends!



    It seems we are all getting fixed up .... I head back to the dentist tomorrow for a 2 hour appt to start the crown work. UGH! So you won't likely hear from me til late in they day.

    Jeanie, are you by any chance staying at the Camp Pendelton Base RV Park? If you are you have to stop by the Sewing Sister's quilt Shop in...gosh...I can't remember the name of the town...I love the town ...it's right on the beach...Carlsbad...that's it...they have the cutest little shopping bags for your purchase...My sister lived in Oceanside for almost 20 years. I loved to visit her.....so different from here on the east coast...

    QuiltE, Et tu Brute'? I'm going on Thursday for the follow up and after that I don't want to see him for another 6 months !
    Oh My!!! it's so late...time for bed..g'nite...

    Carrie, lovely table topper! You must have a huge table

    QuiltE, I did it all freehand, no drawing. When I started I had no clue what to do and I just stared at the top and thought.......now what. So I took the plunge and started quilting.

    Honchey, I have to go in next week for the follow up and I hope I won't see him for another 6 months after that too!

    No news on Isa. No doctor seen yesterday so maybe today?

    This is what I got up to today, This is Shannon and Gladys slaving away at appliqueing the blocks. I had my other machine set up on the dining room table. The second photo was taken just after lunch and by the end of the day we had all the blocks appliqued. Tomorrow I will sew them all together and attach the border.

    QuiltE,,, Shannon's Canadian, she knows your area. I had to explain to them about the mystery blocks as they saw them (only a couple) on the design wall, and they asked where they were going...

    Will take a pic tomorrow when I have the whole top finished.

    DH cooked a wonderful lunch of Maple Mustard Chicken and tossed salad and he cooked steak for dinner AND he did the dishes, boy did I feel spoiled....

    Carrie....what a cheerful table topper. I love it.
    Honchey...not a competition, merely spring cleaning for me. Makes going into the sewing room more enjoyable to know things are being finished and I can start something new with a clear conscious.
    JanRN...did you survive DH's visit to the dentist yesterday? And you really aren't slacking....you just have a life! Some of us retired ones have made quilting our life.
    Jeanie...I saw the weather reports from the west coast . Not such a nice time to be on the beach. Is your camper a pull behind? That would make it easy for you to sneak off to the shop that Honchey mentioned.
    QuiltE...no snow from here. Temps in the 70's with sever storms for the next couple of days. Snow in the northern states so maybe OK will be sending you some snow.
    QNS...glad your BF is home. Hope she is feeling better. How about pics of the ducks? They sound so cute.
    Mirabelle...your raffle quilt is beautiful. Simple elegance! Would your friends be interested in quilting along with us when we start another sew along?
    Dubib...too funny to find you sewing in the dark! That MB must have been kidnapped!
    Anael...no news is good news! It's nice that the SewGrands have settled into growing without so much intervention.
    Me?...I went to the LQS yesterday to get binding and saw a flyer titled spring cleaning. They are offering % off for a trade in on 4 of their machines and one is the Janome 8200. I could take in my Brother 6000i which I paid $125 for and get $850 off which still makes it almost $2200 but it sure is appealing. I don't have room to have two machines set up and I don't think it will fit my sewing table so I have to think about that too. In the meantime I have some sewing to do....have a great day everyone!

    Good morning Ladies--I woke with a migraine so after getting up at 6 to make sure DD and DH were up and moving went back to sleep until 9. Other kids are up now so I should get some school done since I am feeling a little better. Need to make a trip to town today...I will have a surprise to show you when I return!

    Anael--my table is actually pretty small, but at an angle the topper will look nice. If only I can get my family to put their stuff else where so the topper can be seen!!

    QE--the flower border is from a "border fabric" in the same line. It is almost 6" wide so quickly made the topper much bigger! It finished about 40" square. I started with the 12" block in the middle because of the large outer border and didn't want it to be lost.

    QNS--praying your surgery on the 18th goes routinely and it doesn't slow you down too much!

    Jan--good to hear from you. Are you still working lots of hours or have people decided to show up for work lately?

    Dublb---praying you slept well and your eyes are clear this morning so you can get your border on. Can't wait to see a picture.

    Jeanie--do you have a machine in the camper with you or do you take a break from quilting when on the road?

    Mirabelle--looks like you made some great progress yesterday!

    Ggal--the machine deal looks pretty good...decisions, decisions. You are right! Those who don't get as much done *are not* slackers!! I may not be retired, but I just don't have a lot of other stuff going on right now...that changes here and there...like once things finish drying out I will have yard work and spring cleaning to do so sewing time will be cut way down.

    Hope all have a great day!

    Ta Da!!! Finished my BB quilt--isn't it cute? At the bottom of my steps there's a landing before you turn into the living room; wall is an odd size so I hang things there. This BB quilt is the absolute perfect sized for that spot so every time I come down the steps it's like a "hello" from all my friends here. Thank you so much for all the blocks and the great ride!! And yes!! I did it all on my Sweet16!! I'm very proud of myself as there was very little swearing and by the middle of the quilt my machine and I are getting along well. (Don't look too close!!) I also have to brush the chalk off.
    Ok, I got too confident; it won't let me post pic. Did the method for posting change? Clicked on little tree and selected my file, hit upload, and nothing. Hmmm--will try again. Nope-didn't work. But it's really cute!!

    LOL Jan I bet it is

    My DS just called, Isa doesn't have to have surgery. The UMC doesn't see what the eye doc in Zwolle is seeing so she will be back tomorrow. The twins might even go to a hospital nearby, let's wait and see what happens.

    oh, Anael, what good news, and if they are closer, you can see them more!!

    janRN, the BB quilt sounds so nice.

    Sorry , Carrie, that you had a headache this morning; this weather does that to a person, i think.

    mirabell, great looking quilt; have admired those i have seen in QB pictures.

    So the little guys are growing, dh helped hold them for pictures this morning as we changed the water;Name:  DSCN0093.JPG

    That is great news Anael, another milestone reached...

    My 2 friends unfortunately aren't interested in sew alongs preferring to do their own thing. I don't think they "get it" but that's ok.

    Today I am planning on sewing all the blocks together and hopefully will get the border on so off the computer and to work I go...maybe DH will spoil me and cook dinner again tonight.

    Oh gosh, just logged on the first time today, and there are already a ton of messages!

    Honchey, we are at a base much closer to home (about 11 miles) LOL It is called Pt. Mugu. My hubby worked here (civil service) for 32 years.

    Carrie - I have a small Brother sewing machine that I use when we travel. I did not bring it this trip though. I did bring my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out my 5" squares for my border. Love this machine for cutting my scraps up into squares. I do take my sewing machine with me when do travel long distances. I am not a TV or Movie person, so I sew in the evenings.

    Gardnergal - the wind was really bad yesterday, but today there is just a mild breeze blowing. It is suppose to be windy again tomorrow. We travel in a motorhome, and tow my Jeep. The ocean is not as fierce looking today, such a beautiful blue. Wish I had thought to bring my camera!

    Anael, great news about Isa's eyes, and so wonderful they are being moved closer to you. Will they still have those wonderful camera's so you can watch them? I had never heard of that before - so amazing!

    My first great grandchild (a girl) will be born tomorrow! They are inducing my granddaughter tonight. How exciting!

    Jan--hope you can figure out the picture...can't wait to see your BB quilt. How nice you have a good spot for it.

    Anael--great news about the twins move closer.

    QNS--those are some cute little birds. Nice of DH to help get the pictures.

    Mirabelle--how is your progress coming along??

    Now for my surprise...I got a call last Friday afternoon from my Janome dealer. Her "guy" (repairs, cleaning, etc) called and said he had a "demo 6600" available. Since I am on her list I got a call. After talking with DH he basically said it is either the bigger machine or bigger building...after much deliberation I opted for the machine. Mostly because it was a demo and comes with a full warranty (I think a used machine is just a year). DD is thrilled because that means she gets an upgrade on her machine too (she will be using my Jem 760).

    It just fits on the computer desk I got at a garage sale last summer for DD's machine...the keyboard part is adjustable. I will eventually either get an insert for my sew-ezi table or get a Janome table...have to save for a few more months.

    I *had to* try it out this afternoon and am so excited to have more room!!! I was quilting blocks on my BB quilt.

    Congrats Jeanie on the first great granddaughter!!

    I have a Big Shot too and have used it to cut scalloped squares to make a "rag" purse a couple years back.

    A check in before I am off to bed!
    Granted, I didn't do too much today after the dentist ... so will I sleep?

    Honchey ... thanks for thinking of me! Thankfully all went well. Well, that's as well as possible when at the dentist. Now, get your car packed and be ready to leave as soon as you wave good bye to that dentist!

    Anael ... Glad that Isa's report is good. The important thing is that they caught it, and did the further checks and now, if necessary, will continue to monitor her. Oh such good news that they are coming closer to home!!!! If that's your results in your "I don't know what I'm doing" mode ... you're going to be amazing with some practice. Forget it! ... you just proved you don't need practice and are a natural!

    MiraB ... oh such a beautiful quilt!! Some gourmet cook, that MrMiraB is!! Please say hello to Canuck Shannon and tell me more ... where is she from? how did she get there? how long ago? I hope that she had a tug in her ♥ when she saw that Canadian BB. Nice that you had some help, though it looks like you have most of the work to do yourself.

    GGal ... Looks like you have a great LQS with the free fabric offer and now the great trade for the upgrade. Check out the 8900, as from what I've read, I think there's enough reason to go for it, over the 8200. So with your no-snow report, you are letting JanieW catch the blame, when I get the dump!

    CarrieM ... surprise? I just knew it was going to be your 6600!!!! Congratulations!!! ... You're going to love using that machine, and I'm sure after your session today, you are already thankful for your purchase. The table came with mine and while I would have liked more storage in it (the drawer really is almost non existent!), I do like it, as it's very solid. The leaves blew in today ... wasn't that fast? THANK YOU! I was so excited to open them up, and then to pet them. Thanks for the further info on your topper. Great proportions of all together.

    Ladies!! ... there's only one problem with CarrieM and her new machine ... she'll be turning things out even faster now.

    JanRN ... Congratulations on your first finish!!!! Though I still want to see the pic ... I think you have the how to correct, though I find it takes a really long time for it to upload after I press the button!

    QNSue ... oh what cute pics!!

    JeanieG ... your Big Shot, is that basically the same as the other cutting machines? Do you feel like you waste a lot of material with it? Or is it very efficient, that way? How exciting that you will soon have a DGGrand! May all go well for your DGD.

    And now Ladies, this kiddo is trotting off to bed!
    Bon Soir!

    Oh Anael what good news! No surgery for Isa, & they are gonna be closer!! Hooray!!!
    Mirabelle - That's one happy quilt, & your sewin' mates look quite content! How neat that one o' 'em is from North America!
    GG - That does sound like a good deal. Are ya gonna go for it?
    Jan - I sure hope ya figure out how ta post a pice soon! I'm very happy that ya have a great place for it.
    QNS - Those are sweet li'le babies! I"ll be prayin' for ya on the 18th. {Huggs}
    Carrie - I hope your headache is gone now! I hate ta git migraines. (I haven't had one in about 3 years, ......she says as she knocks on wood....)
    I bet ya are never gonna regret that "new" machine.
    Jeanie - Let me know if bein' a DGGM is as good as bein' a DGM. I bet it is!!!!
    QE - I'm hopin' that ya are feelin' better. Some times a trip ta the dentist can be hard on ya.
    As for the discussion about how much we each git done...well I'm just plan slow w/whatever I do! It takes me longer, so I just accept it. Quiltin' is my art & fun so I'm ok w/it. LOL Each o' us sews at our own pace & that's fine.

    I did git my borders on my PC BB quilt! I'll post picts tamarrow. I even took picts showin' how I miter a triple border. I was wonderin' if I should post 'em here or do a tute. Honchey what do ya think?

    Dublb, You can do whatever you please....UHH, I just read it again..A triple border??? Yes, I would like to see that...

    I have most of my sewing projects packed...I have 2 quilts that I started to stich in the ditch that I'm going to bring with me...Hopefully I can get them quilted and then done...One of them is queen size...the other is a throw...
