    CarrieM ... good to do the planning ahead. I think I'd have the spring springing all over the place and soon say, forget that project! Good for you and your friend to tackle so many!

    MiraB ... yippppeeeee for you! Now you can work on your raffle quilt, without needing to think of MBs! Thanks for the reminder to send my pics to Anael also.

    Anael ... Sharing their nurse is a good sign of how well they are doing! Maybe Grandma can make the together time happen!!! Your tabletopper quilt is even prettier now that we can see the whole design. Lovely indeed!

    **note to self**
    MiraB is a sucker for anything purple!

    And I ask my accountant if we could change status of our hobby farm since we sold $60 worth of eggs last year, and he just laughed. "No, " he said, "you would have to make considerably more!" Ok, we are still a hobby farm with 2.9 acres and have a hobby quilt room that makes less $$$ than the chicks in the hen house.

    My computer was not behaving this morning so DD logged on and cleaned it all up with Mareware and CCleaner and anti-spyware all within an hour of time this afternoon. It better behave or I will let DD log into it again.!! Isn't it nice to have raised a child who talks computer-ease and helps out??free....of course.

    Love that purple and blue, Anael. And the bucket idea is cute, Carrie....IF no one kicks the bucket!!

    Yes Carrie! I got another sewin' machine! I have a pict that I'll load on the computer soon, ta show ya. It is a black "Sewmatic" The 80 yr old lady said that it still worked but she couldn't lift it anymore ta use it. She wanted $25 dolors for it. I told her that I wasn't gonna "cheat" her that way & gave her $50 for it. She looked like she needed it. It does run & did sew straight. I oiled it & greased it. The feed dogs won't adjust up or down. They are kinda stuck in the middle which makes the stitches length hard ta adjust also. I went ahead & brought it back here & will have my Machine Guy take care o' it. The case smells terrible so I gotta find out a case ta put it in as it won't sit by itself.

    I was going to say a sewing machine too! LOL

    Honchey, that living room looks like my son's house when we visit. They are always moving the cushions all over. I told them that grandma was going to trip and fall trying to maneuver through the living room with all those cushions all over the place. As long as they put it all to rights, I guess it does not hurt anything!

    Honchey, you got your approval

    Mirabelle, that's when I walked away from my quilt too. Took a break, new needle, slowed down a bit and no broken needles anymore. I'm now outside sewing the binding on the practice quilt. The weather is great, first time this year

    Anael such a simple pattern and you have showcased your gorgeous feathers beautifully. It has certainly given this quilt the WOW factor... I love it How big did the quilt end up?? it looks a good size

    Thank you Karen! I still don't know if I like it with all those feathers.
    It ended up 80 x 55", just measured it as I didn't know myself

    Anael ... I should send that cartoon to my accountant! Though I don't think the man has a good sense of humour. Talking about sewing outside, you make me envious ... still chilly here, though it is to warm up today to 19C ... time will only tell! Your feathered wonder, is a wonder! So delicate looking with the fabric/colours and feathers.

    DublB ... I guessed another sewing machine! (before seeing the answer!)

    Honchey ... Doesn't look like my block by the fabrics And why do I think you were instigator of the fort building? Looks like a FUN time with the DGS's? How long will they be with you?

    MiraB ... Oh dear! Good thing you walked away, and hopefully another day, it'll be clear sailing!

    Another day, another dollar, was an old saying I remember...so Mirabelle...your tomorrow will be a better day.

    Anael, excellent job well done on the quilt!! On to the next challenge!!

    Dublb, I want to know how you can sew on more than one machine at a time....that would be something to see!! You need shelves where you can display all your various machines...and enjoy looking at them!!

    Some therapy in the sewing room is planned for today...for myself...I hope. Quiet, peaceful and productive.

    Thanks all for your compliments on my practice quilt! It's in my living room now and will stay there for a while.

    QNS, I'm sewing the binding on a fruit/veggie table topper for my DDIL. I hope you'll get your therapy time

    QuiltE, I did make a suggestion of turning the toddler bed over!!! they do this everytime they're over for a visit...I just sit in the adjoining room and watch...they do put it back to order before they leave...

    I mailed my April MB today......is it staying in the continental USA or is it going elsewhere???? I'll never tell!!!! Someone somewhere will get a very pretty block!!! Used some of my "I don't want to cut it up" fabric...

    My LA quilter from across the road called and had her machine available to quilt more of my tops, so I took two over to her. One was the Pansy Passion II, and the other one was gs wild North American animal quilt. Both quilt sizes were like 48 by 60, so they will not take long to do.

    Arranged the BB blocks; now to decide on slashing, corner stones, etc., and finish it, so LA sisters can quilt it. Finish the blue nine patch quilt border, and let they quilt it. Finish border for lilac/black/bright green garden trellis quilt and they can quilt that one. Finish borders for the 'rocket' throw and they can quilt that.,...although Bakers Dozen called it the shuttle pattern. Meanwhile back to therapy in the Quilt Room.

    Honchey's block must be destined for me! .... after all it is the 15th and time for International Blocks to be on the moooooooooove!!

    Honchey ... so glad that you "teach" the kids to play and that they have learned to put it all back together again, for you!

    Anael ... No decisions yet! I have the pics and they are in my camera. Guess I need to download them and send them into cyberspace for you!

    QNSue ... you're going to have lots of great therapy with all those quilt tops going to the Moss Sisters! You're becoming a real little assembly line of production. Here's a block that I spotted, that perhaps DH would like to do ...

    It's from a PP blog hop series. Here's the list with dates and links ....

    I really want to get my PC borders done this week ... now that I've said it, I have my accountability to you ladies!

    Qns, you are one busy lady today. What's for dinner????

    Well, I'm officially an antique. My neighbor came over today and spotted 2 chairs I had brought back from my mother's house. She got so excited, OMG where did you get those?? Everyone loves those antiques. They're Mid-Century Modern and very sought after OMG!!! Well, they've been in my mother's bedroom ever since I can remember so I guess that makes me mid-century modern antique, what ever the heck that is LOL. I just brought them home and put them in my sunporch to pile quilts on--I've run out of places to display them. Maybe I should look them up on Ebay or something----maybe I'll sell them and get rich and never work another day. Nah--I like the size of them. Actually thought of painting them white LOL. Shows how much I know about antiques!!!
