    MiraB ... I bet Shannon had a chuckle! Though it looks like she's pretty Aussie with her long term roots now!! I'm guessing Dawbell in Aussie would translate to Dorval for me! ?About an 8 hr drive away.

    MiraB and GGal ... some of those MiraB fabrics definitely are MiraB! ... the manufacturer must have just insisted that the loud be included. I do like the softer ones ... not so much the louds!

    OKSGlad, GGal and QNSue ... I'm chuckling at all this gardening talk. If you could see out my window. And hear the wind. And knew what the day was like here. You'd be laughing too! As I heard someone say on April 1st ... the winter that refuses to die!

    GGal ... glad your squishie got thru! So you liked that duct tape!! Yea for you getting that star quilt together ... photo? And now to get your discounted fabric. And yes, ITA with OKSGlad ... be sure to remember and hold back on your activities in the garden, or else you will be undoing the progress. And you don;t want to go thru the surgery!

    QNSue ... thankfully a breath of spring with your pansie quilt. Lovely!!! And whom is this one for?

    JanRN ... Awesome BB Quilt!!!!!!! I wouldn't have thought of the red, and I do really like it. Great quilting there. I am SO PROUD of YOU!!!!! ABsolutely wonderful!! I particularly like your unique quilting for each block. Love the spirit of Aunt Kate! They did a feature after the news not long ago here ... a man who was 101 yrs old, still driving and delivering Meals on Wheels twice a week. He was amazing!!!! last night they had a woman on who is 109, and gave a better interview than I've seen many much younger.

    Going to check some more threads and answer some emails ... Good Night All!!!!!!!!

    Jan--your quilt was worth the wait...great job.

    I enjoy reading about everyone's garden preparations...we have had a couple gardens since married...the first two DFIL planted and then DS planted a small one a couple times. Growing up we never had a garden even though I lived in the country (on 12 acres) most of my growing up years. I do *not* have a "green thumb" and no desire to learn how to do it all at this point. Thankfully we have good produce at the farmer's market and in the stores.

    No quilting today...I started sorting my card making and scrapbooking supplies. I have lots I will be selling and some that will be moved up on the little loft in the clubhouse. I bought tubs today to sort things into. The cupboards that these things were in will be where I store fabric after rearranging furniture. Tomorrow I will go through the 2md cupboard and do some quilting.

    Babysitting my 3 yo nephew this weekend so not sure how much time I will have in the clubhouse...there's always next week.

    I would never thought of Red and Black together, but you made it work perfectly, JanRN. And I like the quilting that you did!! It will be interesting to how everyone arranges their BB quilt placements.

    QuiltE, it snowed here today, but did not build up any; just a wet and cold day, far cry from a warm gardening day. It is good that it is raining and puddles standing around which we did not see all last year. Fruit trees are leafing out, and starting to bloom....so hope it does not freeze the buds now.

    Well I had a busy day taday! Slept late as usual Had lunch w/DH. Had my hair trimmed & straightened. Went ta Hancock Fabrics & bought the battin' & backin' for the SBS quilt that I'm doin' for PL. Didn't find any backin' for the swap quilt so I went ta my LQS & found some. I got a boat panel at my last retreat & was gonna use the left over fabric from the SBS that I just did. Well after I pressed it & squared it up it is 2" too short.

    What a great job you did on the BB quilt, Jan! Love it!

    We got home from our camping trip this afternoon, in time to go to the hospital to see my new great-granddaughter. Aubree Rene was born at 2:48 this afternoon. She weighed in at 8 lb. 14 oz, and was 19" long. She was delivered by c-section, so mommy will be in the hospital a few more days. Here is her first photo:

    Gone for a day and the chatter has been busy,

    Ggal that is so funny about the Mirabelle fabric, but I really like it. Might have to get me some for my stash

    Dublb so sorry to hear about your postal problems, I hope it gets sorted out quickly

    QNS I absolutely love your pansy quilt, so beautiful

    JanRN your BB quilt is beautiful, what a wonderful memory quilt it will be

    JeanieG congrats on your gorgeous Great Granddaughter such a precious bundle.

    My news, not a lot. Wish I had time to work on my BB quilt, not going to happen for a while. I have to start quilting the raffle quilt. Started my May MB today but not working out the way I want it so will redo tomorrow. Note to self, don't try to work on intricate blocks at embroidery club, too much chatter, too much laughter and too many distractions. But I had a great day..
    My longarmer is going to post more photos of my Pony Club quilt tomorrow I hope so can't wait to see it.

    Now time for a coffee and 5 minutes of peace and quiet then off to DS's for dinner
    Chat to everyone tomorrow

    Wow QNS, that quilt is just gorgeous! Such lovely, bright colours!

    Jan, you did a great job on your BB quilt! Congrats on finishing

    Jeanie, congrats on your beautiful GGD!

    Yesterday I found an UFO in a box It was supposed to become a quilt but it ended up to be a table topper. I started this one about 2 years ago, the piecing wasn't that well done and half of the blocks are on bias so hard to match! The top is done, now to find some batting (I ran out of it) and backing. Oh, the top still needs a border
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Dublb--that is too bad your fabric was 2" short! I am sure you can come up with some creative way to fix it. I've never sent something as small as a block by UPS or FedEx, do they have small envelopes to use available? I'll have to check their websites. Maybe one day real soon you will get a big pile of mail!!!

    Jeanie--congrats on the healthy baby girl. Praying mama heals quickly so she can take care of babe.

    Mirabelle--you will get to your BB quilt one of these days. Have you thought about how you will lay them out yet? Will you be quilting the raffle quilt at home or rent time on the LA?

    Anael--good for you doing *something* with the UFO besides just letting it sit longer.

    Well I am getting sleepy again so better try to get a couple more hours in before getting up with DH for work. My back woke me hurting at about 2:30, took ibuprofen and used heating pad...muscles seem to be relaxed now.

    Carriem I am going to quilt it on my Pfaff sewing machine, hopefully it will only take me a week, I plan to start it on Sunday...

    I have drawn up some plans for my BB's ---
    Plan 1 was to use the list of names, I think Grannyq came up with it, print it on fabric and use it as the centrepiece, border with HST's and maybe place the blocks on point around it.
    Plan 2 was to border each block and then use a connecting block, maybe 9 patch or pinwheel to make it a nice size.
    Plan 3 Blocks on point with plain block between for some nice quilting

    When I have decided then it will be time for action. I just really want to spend some time doing my stuff but unfortunately that won't happen for at least a week.
    Good news today, I sent off my deposit to attend my retreat in September. DH is going to take leave from work so I can attend, gotta love him..

    Carriem I sympathise with you about your back, I have back problems that will only get worse as I get older and as the temperature has dropped here I have turned my electric blanket on to keep some warmth in my back joints. Why do we have to get older

    Wow Mirabelle...that quilting finishes of your blocks nicely. I think sometimes the quilting can take away from a quilt, but from the little I can see she makes your blocks the important part.

    Jan...thanks for posting pics of your quilt! I really like it and we are really proud of you.
    Carrie....sounds like quilting it coming to the forefront. You will enjoy having more space for fabric. I think it grows overnight. My scraps from the past couple of weeks are nearly overrunning me and I need to get serious about taking care of them. Hope your back gets better. I know we need a better mattress and that would help mine but age is catching up with me a bit too. I know that both UPS and FedEx have mailing envelopes.
    QNS...did you get any frost last night? Not near that cold here but much cooler since the rain came through.
    Dubib...what is the SBS quilt? I can't keep up with all the abbreviations.
    Jeanie....what a beautiful GGD. It's fun to have them close enough to see once in a while but I think it was your comment that once we get used to our quiet routine, young children can really disturb that. My DM always said that God knew what He was doing when he gave young women the task of raising babies.
    Mirabelle....I really like that fabric too. IRL the blue is almost grey and would make a wonderful blender. I know I will be getting some...along with the loudest. I have a magazine that has those fast quilts with focus fabrics and this group would be perfect for it. I peeked at your quilt. What a work of art! Another quilt show entry? You really need to show off your work to the world.
    So today is laundry and all the stuff I put off yesterday. I will be getting the backing and maybe even a little time to spend on another MB. My BB's are on the wall but it is not calling to me yet so I'm not sure what I will tackle next. Plenty to do.

    Neat picture of the ggd, Jeanie...may be one of the generations later?

    Mirabelle, sorry about your back hurting; that quilting job is fantastic on a first class quilt piecing job!

    Ggal, not sure about the frost here, since I slept in last night, so tired lately.

    Lots of good chatter here this morning to read; that is what i like to do first thing of a morning. Then I face the problems of the day: to UPS a Rainbow vacuum cleaner back to Texas to be reconditioned; to see what I can do with 20 dozen eggs in the refrigerator, and mailing some things out by Monday at the latest. Starting my day here, then to eat Peanut Butter and jelly sandwich, and face the day from there. You all have a good day; a busy day is a good day.

    Bev, what a lovely house you have! And I just adore your SBS quilt! I always wanted to make one myself but never got to it. Oh well, maybe some day

    I never knew FMQ = workout!!! I'm using very heavy flannel (mattress covers) and it's so heavy I will never use that stuff again! I'm halfway done and need lots of breaks! And it's only a table topper. Lucky me I didn't use it in a quilt

    Every get the feeling that like a salmon swining up the river against the strong current, it relates to your progress in the quilt room??? One step forward, and two backward?? Yes, I finished and pressed the pansy passion II quilt top; when it gets quilted by machine, it will go to Corpus Christi, TX, to a friend, retired librarian who was born in Iowa, around Fort Madison, and ended up in Corpus where we lived...she arrived at the tender age of two. On to....one of the ten dozen projects left to do. Which one is next...may the PC rows sewn together and BB arranged.

    Janie, there will be a small brown package headed your way either tomorrow or next Monday. No, its not a mystery block. It is a pre-cut homemade fabric and pattern kit to do your own Pansy Passion II with six blocks ready to sew together. No, you cannot send me any Canadian $$ 'cause my bank does not accept it; looks at it like it was home made play money. QuiltE tried that 'cause I sent her muslin and patterns, but we both learned how things have changed since 9-11. No matter...to friends on this PC ride.

    Dublb, lovely home; it looks loved and lived in by a family. So glad you are enjoying your cabin at the lake, but do be careful in those bell bonnets 'cause they attract big rattlers, too.

    No problemo, Mirabelle. I was cutting out blocks and Janie said she hoped it was her MB; she loved it. Therefore, I cut out for her, too, but did not sew it together because in my eye, she is a great quilter and pieces them together so well, really better than I.

    What goes around comes around, its just passing the act of kindness on that members of this board has done a large number of times...love the folks and company on this trail ride. without exception unlike family dh and I are related too! Appreciate each and everyone of you....celebrate, pat yourselves on the back...you are the best.

    And here it is April 12th, and I am wearing a heavy winter ski sweater, turtle neck, thick socks and corduroy jeans!

    We've had ice, not snow today. Everything was very crystalline and then this afternoon it started crashing down from my trees and roof. Now with night coming, it's starting to freeze again. I don't think I have had any serious damage ... a few branches down around the yard and in the bush. I seldom lose hydro, but today was one of those days, being out for 3 hours which I expect was from ice weighing down the lines, then probably snapping them.

    I'm sure my daffodils are saying, I want to go back down. They're only in shoots, no buds yet, so should survive OK. And guess what? It's supposed to be 18C on Monday ... then back to normal temps of about 10C.

    CarrieM
    ... looks like your new machine is speaking to you to downsize your other hobby! I'm sure you'll still keep your hand in it though, as you want/need things done. Looks like you will have a busy weekend. Hopefully with 3 "assistants", your nephew will be easy care, and the work for you minimal, so you can take care of your back, and keep those migraines under control.

    QNSue ... sorry that you had to see snow. I know you will appreciate the rain to bring up the water table. Were the Missouri tornados anywhere near you? I'm thinking not, and that they were in the South of the State? Once again you have proven you have a ♥ of gold!!!!! With all the snow that JanieW still has, your sending spring to her will be a real treat!

    DublB ... Ahhh the life of luxury, sleeping late! and then the rest of the day sounds just perfect! Your SBS is a cute quilt. What are your plans for it? Your Brady home is lovely.

    JeanieG ... Oh Happy Day, Great Grandmamamamaa!!!!! How sweet and precious Lil Aubree Rene is!

    MiraB ... Wheeeeeeeeee!!!! Your PC is done and from the pictures we've seen you have one exceptional LAQ. Imagine, 8 different threads. Can't wait to see the whole thing, and I'll be checking her site all weekend, hoping to see that full on shot!! And even more so, when you get it home and can tell/show us more!! It would be fun for you to get and use that MiraB fabric! So nice that your DS invites you to dinner! Letting your BB quilt simmer on the back burner is not so bad, as the inspiration will come to you without stress. Once you have the raffle quilt done, then will that let you go back to what you want to do? Great news about your retreat plans. Does that include DD going too? ... I'm thinking DH taking the time off, is so that he can be there to look after your dog? I smiled when I saw your heating pad treatment as I do the same! However, the smile was a little twisted, as I was wondering what the temperature is there now? and that I usually stash the heating pad away with warmer times! At the same time, I will confess that I have been known to have my heated car seat turned on (for my back) in the midst of the heat of summer ......... with the air conditioning on at full blast!

    Anael .. you are must motoring along with projects! Is your 1st BSR quilt finished thru to the binding now? Hope you're going to keep it for yourself, as a reminder of your 1st! Any Isa and Bram updates for us?

    Have a great weekend everyone!!!!!!!!!!

    QuiltE DD is coming to retreat with me, we already have a project to work on together, something that has been sitting in the cupboard for number of years. And yes DH has to stay home and look after the dogs, its like having small children all over again.

    The temperature has dropped to about 23 Celsius but that is cold for me and my back seizes up.

    Time to make lunch, we are having a prawn salad and then I am going to spend the afternoon in the sewing room, think DH and DS are going to the movies together, some shoot em up sci-fi that I don't like..

    MiraB ... Yes, I can imagine that for you 23C is chilly! I would so love to have a dog or cat, though the "babysitting" issue would be an issue. For now, I don't want the responsibility that I must get home for the critters, no matter how much I would love to have one. I used to love coming home and our dalmation would be jumping all excited to see me! I'm still in awe that you and your DD have the enjoyment of each others company as well as the common quilting love! I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress after your afternoon sewing! ITA skip the sci-fi with the guys. Not my "cup of tea" either!


    ***giddy with delight**

    I have Miss April and Miss May done for my MB partners ... and even have their Lil Sisters done for my keepers!

    I have posted Miss April's block to her and I am currently working on Miss May's block today, worked on it yesterday but wasn't happy with it so cut another one out and if this doesn't work will have to make a plan B..

    I have not made my MB's little sister, was put off by April's block and when you see it you will understand why so I won't have any little blocks but that's ok
