    I thought I had a pict o' my April MB, but I don't. LOL I'll have ta git one taken' later taday so I can git it judged.

    So much agoin' on & I can't keep up. LOL Sheep patterns & Mirabelle fabric. San Antoino is alot closer ta Brady than Midland. I haven't made that trip in a long time, not since I was a li'le girl. (The one from Brady ta San Antonio.) I did go through San Antonio when we drove ta Houston from Midland. That was a 12 hour trip, but I think the time ta git ta San Antonino was 10 hours.

    The quickest trip from CC to SA was when I was scheduled to met eldest daughter there, and I got behind a Ford Tarius that passed me, so I decided to keep him in my sights up ahead...no way was I up to catching up with him...with two cars between us and a lead foot, I slowed down with the pack when they slowed down. Yep, that trooper was in the other two lanes facing us across the wide median and as soon as he passed the batch headed to SA, the pace car, Ford T., was off and running hard again. Clocking in with an hour and half record from CC to SA, it was a one time only, despite the fact we lived there twenty five years. Never realized how big TEXAS really is, until we lived there. It was a five to six hour drive from CC to University of Houston in Houston where youngest daughter and son went to school. DD was one of 980 National Merit Scholars, one engineer of 380 engineers in her class to graduate with 40,000 other graduates in her class. It was not unusual to hear at least 10 different languages being spoken there in just one block of UH. Took over four hours just to get everyone seated for graduation...a far cry from where we live now in population numbers. And you guessed who usually drove them back and forth...by myself. College Station at Bryan was another two hours away, difficult to get any kind of transportation in and out of it, so when youngest daughter said, "Mom would rather I go to College Station or UH," it was a no brainer. Sad to say, I seen a news report on the 'starving' college students of today....there is just too much hunger in American today.

    Lots of chatter the last couple days. I didn't get any sewing done Sunday or Monday. Spent a couple hours with my sister on Sunday when she came to pick up my nephew and then took a nap. Yesterday took DD to an appt and shopping for some spring/summer clothes. We were only able to find one pair of shorts and one skirt...so will have to try again later. I refuse to pay $15+ for short-shorts that I won't let her wear anyways.

    Today I spent the afternoon making my May MB. Had to start twice, then only had to do a little ripping....sent to Anael for "approval". Need to get back to the borders on my BB quilt....maybe on Thursday.

    I work tomorrow. Nothing on my "list" to buy so will have to try hard to be good.

    Great table runner Anael! So cute, I know your DDIL will love it! How are the babies doing in their new environment? Are they settling in okay? My new GGD developed jaundice, so she had to stay an extra day in the hospital. I think she went home today.

    I got a small border on my Pony Club quilt, and I am piecing the 5" blocks and 1" strips together for another border. I think it will look great, I hope!!! I still have a lot of fabric plus a panel that I was given, so plan to use that for the backing.

    I picked out the fabric and pattern for my May MB, I'm going to cut it out so I can use it as leaders/enders for my border pieces!

    Anael ... another great finished project for you! I've looked at that fabric before, and didn't know what I'd do with it but have never seen it in charms. Perfect way to get the assortment. Don't know about your pattern/book you;re looking for ... perhaps QNSue in her HUGE resource library might have it? Yes, spray basting is expensive, but oh so worth it. Though it doesn't really take a lot ... most of us use more than necessary. At least I am sure I do! I'm SEW happy for you that you are back to your Ode to Mom!

    MiraB ... would it be the batik that's causing the problems? Tough stuff to go thru. Maybe a different needle? I'm sure you ARE succeeding ... remember we are our own worse critic!

    JanRN ... sure, put us to shame with cleaning/organizing your sewing area! gggrrrrrrr!!!!! 'With all that beige tonal, would it work for the Mariners Compass pattern? I think we all have our slang ... and don't realize it's any different. Besides, isn;t it the other people who talk funny? not us? Still laughing at dust elephants!! .... thanks for identifying my critters!

    GGal ... look forward to seeing some WIP pics of your MiraB project! WAs the pattern on that site? If so, I couldn't find it. Sorry, but I don't visualize well with word pics!

    JanieW ... I have Nancy Halvorsen;s lost sheep!!!! and have made the quilt!!!!! BONUS ... It's Easy-Peasy too! Check this out ... and email me!

    OKSGlad ... Sew Glad to see you back with us for a bit! You mean Bernina's have coronaries? Not fun when you can;t use your favourite machine. I'm sure your Janome will give you the perfect seam ... though you may need to move the needle. On both of my J's I've had to reposition it to accomplish that.

    JeanieG ... Hope your DGD come along fine and can gon on home soon!

    Oh such a good feeling to get out in the sunshine today. Spent a strong 6 hours outside and will soon draw a hot bath for a good soaking. Body feels like it's going to need it. I managed to get some of the gravel deposited from snow removal off the lawn. Then made a flower bed around the LP gas tank. First layered some cardboard, then a ring of lime rock--heaven knows there's enough of that around here. Was able to toss some dirt in the bed, too. It's only about 18" deep. Plan on filling it with daylilies which are pretty low maintenance. Think I'll put some nasturtiums around the front this year to fill in the spaces of the new plantings.
    Here's a pic of my finished baby hexi flimsy. Plan to applique it to a solid border. Auditioned it next to a yellow and a muslin--yuk! Do you think white will work? Pic is just on top of my sofa cushion.
    Okay, "Calgon take me away......" I can feel lots of unused muscles tonight.

    QuiltE I think the Batik was the problem, the thread was really really tight over the batik then relaxed over the cotton, so I am unpicking what I started and have gone with 2 threads.

    I have included photos for you all to have a look at and tell me what you think, I am not feeling the love at the moment. I may have to stitch in the ditch in the seam line so hold it down between the different colour threads.

    But on a brighter note, look what the postie delivered to me this morning, nice big parcel and inside is my Pony Club Quilt. Will take a lot of pics later today and show you my quilt that is finally finished oh well except for the binding anyway and that might take me a few nights to stitch.

    Hi Everyone, Waited all nite at BINGO...didn't win ....

    Ok, I think I would like a grass green for your flimsy.. it would look like flowers in the grass...Funny thing about aches and pains...I don't have to do gardening to feel the way you do!!!

    Please explain "Mirabelle Fabric"...I must have missed it???

    I plan on a small trip to Wilmington,NC just to check out a few quilt shops...I'm going alone so I'll be taking the GPS...first to Sam's Club then the LQS... Dh is playing golf...Wish me luck...

    Mirabelle, I like the 2 threads..is it really necessary to stitch the seam lines? I would only do that if it doesn't lay flat after doing all the quilting...

    OKSGlad ... A busy day, and I hope you do no suffer from your over-ambition! No need to worry about playing in the dirt here yet. Your GFG must have put you in th gardening mood. I'm thinking if you did not like yellow or muslin, then the white will be disappointing too. What about a mid-blue?

    MiraB ... oh how exciting to receive your PC ... nothing like teasing us, YET AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Despite all your thread woes, the quilting design is wonderful. Gives a nice movement to the quilt, kind of like the flowers are blowing in the breeze. ITA with Honchey about the SITD for the blocks, unless necessary. I think it would give a choppy look to the quilt, rather than framing them up.

    Honchey ... oh how disappointing at BINGO! Is your Little FART tmro? GGal found the MiraB fabric and already has started cutting and stitching.

    Good Night Ladies!

    OK--cute hexies. What size? I missed it if you told us. Take it easy tomorrow...I know the sunshine is tempting though.

    Mirabelle--I think your two threads looks nice. Good that you found a way for it to work without breaking needles!!

This li'le quilt is for DGS that was born on March 3rd.
    This week I'm gittin' fabric prepped for a class I'm gonna take in Brady on Sat. This one'll be for DGS that is 5 & lives in the Houston area.

    Can I just say thank you to everyone who participated in this sew along, without everyone's encouragement I don't think I would have made either of my Farmers Wifes quilts, so ladies thank you from the bottom of my heart

    Mirabelle - that is exactly the kind of quilting that I adore! I love to see each block design stand out by itself, with other quilting around it. It is not too much! It is just wonderful!!!

    I couldn't resist taking this snap of my "guard dog", I feel so safe If I laid like that I would never stand up straight again. And I had to step over him to get out of my sewing room, he didn't move
