    Mirab, QE did a great job on her block. I love that pattern. And they look great together.

    Anne, great haul!! That is my kind of FART. Sorry about the tooth problem. MrJanRn can't chew on one side for 8 wks since his surgery then they'll put in 2 implants and he won't be able to chew again for 8 weeks. He says he's lost weight (which he doesn't need to do, he runs 2 miles a day). Me--I'd chew on the other side and never lose an ounce.

    No sewing here yesterday or today. I'm cleaning! (No I'm not sick LOL just couldn't stand looking at dirty windows). We're finally getting some sunny days and wow! it really shows the grime. My sunporch has 8 windows and it took me all day to get them done; now need to wash the curtains, iron them and re-hang. My shoulders are killing me; almost feels like I was FMQing all day--wish I was.

    You know, I kind of miss the deadlines of doing 2 blocks a week. I work best when I have a goal or have to be accountable to someone. Otherwise my QuiltersADD kicks in and I wander from project to project. Have a great day everyone!

    Boo Hoo I want to see more!! Why is it when we see something we like we want more!!! I can't wait to see more MB's...
    Jan, I can sympathize with Mr.JanRN...I cut my sandwiches into little fingers...I have no problem after the food is in my mouth....
    Now, I'm off to check out the stash I have here to see what I can come up with for another MB...going to "play" for a bit with my new toys...Birds anyone????

    Honchey, it's not a MB block, it's one of the Ode to my Mom blocks. This is block # 9 Diamond Lily.

    Honchey--sorry to hear about your tooth! Nice "haul" though yesterday. Do you use your Go cutter a lot? I have a big shot that I got for card making and know that I could use some of the Go dies in that if I wanted to. What are your favorite ones?

    OK--so far in the past 24 hrs we've had 4" of rain. We're going to go look at the river after done with school this morning...you can see it from our back deck through the trees, but can't get a good idea of how high it actually is.

    Dublb--if we could send the rain that way we would! We needed it last year, but it is coming down too fast right now to do much good. Wonder how this summer will be??

    Jan--You will feel more like sewing in a clean room...I know I do! I agree having a deadline always helps me to get things done in a reasonable time. That is why I have set the goal to finish one UFO a month. If you need shorter goals maybe break it down into parts (cutting, piecing, quilting, binding). So far this year I have finished a quilt a month plus a couple small things (purse, runners, etc) too. The UFO quilts were ones that the blocks were done, so it was just assembly...as I get further into the year some may take more than a month to finish...we'll see.

    Anael--another very pretty block.

    Here is a picture of my dog Ginger...DS was drying her off after coming in and laid the towel on her...she just sat there.

    I did it again; got the Dr. scratching his head on how my body manufactured so many polyps in the large colon...he took out the biggest three and as many as he could of the others...but there were a lot of them. Told my bf I was playing with fire to have gone so long without having it done....since 2004. Lab reports will be back next Wednesday at 2:15 at his office, so that's when my appointment is. As long as I don't hear the 'C" word, I will smile. He is gong to read me the riot act and insist on doing the same procedure next year to harvest more polyps. And my lungs are a bit wheezy, so have to check that out next. Thee old gray mare ain't what she used to be... but as long as I can travel along...inch my way...life can be celebrated!! Coarse ground black pepper is suggested to help discourage polyps growth.

    Nice looking fabric pieces, Honchey. Anael, love that lily block. I am sorry if I missed anyone else on the last couple of pages here, a bit fuzzy headed yet.

    Yikes, the water is rising here; we went the long way in the dark on major highways and water was getting close to the highway in one spot..and even more impressive as we came home and could see the flooded fields...if it rains another 24 hours, bf and dh will have to stay longer... but I know they will get homesick just like I would. Love to travel, but want my own bed at night..

    No sewing today...maybe tomorrow.

    river pictures

    It is hard for you to realize how high the river is since you don't know what it usually looks like, but here are a few pictures. (The kids got me to go before all their school was done...just finishing up the last couple things now).

    First is a picture of a fence under water...you can see how close it is to the road.

    Second is a picture of the boat ramp...on the left you can barely see the top of a picnic table which is on top of a hill...the ramp is to the right of that. Then the other picnic table is on the other side of the ramp.

    Third picture shows how close the water is to the bottom of the bridge. There are cement pillars that you can usually see...I'll have to try to remember to show you pictures when the water goes down again.

    QNS--good to see you home already. Glad you were able to make it to and back home from the appt safely! Sounds like water is much higher in your area than directly around me. We don't have a lot a creeks real close by.

    No rain! The cold front came in but it's a dry one. Nary a drop one.
    I've got my cat in my lap again so I'm huntin' & peckin' again.

    Good to see you back again QNS. Let's hope you won't hear the C word!! Glad you made it home safely.
    No rain here, it's too dry for spring here. Temperatures are dropping again, below zero at night

    QNS, I had a couple of polyps over 10 years ago (no cancer thank God)! But that meant that I have to have a colonoscopy every 5 years. At my last one, no polyps. The worse part of the whole process is the crap you have to drink to clean yourself out. Yucky!!! The actual procedure is really quick, and they put you out, so you are not aware of what is going on. It is a really important procedure to have done - right Jan!!!

    *giggles* butttttttttttttt Anael ... I never thought the mail would get it to MiraB so FAST! I promise, I will do those pics tonight and give you an early start on May!!!

    MiraB ... I wasn't sure how the yellows would work together, and they do look like they are playing well off each other. IRL the dark blue of mine isn't quite so dark.

    JanRN and Honchey ... after hearing both reports of Honchey's and MrJanRN's dentist visits, I count myself lucky for what I've gone thru in comparison.

    JanRN ... the cat's away and you're supposed to be playing, not slaving!!! Look at it this way, that the work you are doing is for your sewing room ... That makes it seem more enjoyable and worthwhile, doesn;'t it? Bet you're enjoying it all the same ... no day job and DH away. Windows done now, and get yourself back into the quilting zone!

    psssssssst Honchey ... birds could be pretty in my whites and pastels ... just saying!

    Anael ... you already know I like that OTM block!

    CarrieM ... your dog looks like he's saying, Good Grief, there they go again! We've had a fair amount of rain too. Puddles in some of the fields. Grass is actually starting to green up. I'm sitting high and dry, though some lower areas are having flooding issues. Quite the pictures you got ... and great reflections!

    QNSue ... Thanks so much for dropping by, so we all have an update. *shudder* on the coarse ground pepper! A wee little dash is all I like. And I mean wee!!! Take today and be good to yourself ... a day of lazing about, as you get out of the fog. And please don't start fretting before you go next Wednesday. No sense wasting your energy on that ... and then deal with whatever you are told then ... including the necessity of following the Dr's orders, including the regular appointments. PLEASE!!!

    JeanieG ... Monitoring is important to catch things early, should something happen. And a better chance of stopping it in its tracks!

    brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
    I'm freezing (in the temperature sense, not the dental-freezing sense) ... though I am uncomfortasble and thing I will go have a lay down before supper. TThe freezing came out pretty quickly though it always seems to leave me wiped out, and my eyes feel like they are not allowed to open the whole way. It'll pass!!!

    Good Night!!! .......... well not quite .... would that be .... Good Late Afternoon?

    Dr. Batra uses Doc Qlax pills (six of them over 12 hour period and Magnesium citrate as an oral solution (cherry flavor) which I drank with chipped ice, 16 fluid oz. twice, and it really was not too bad. All the Cherry Coke I wanted to drink, which helped too. This was my fifth time of doing it; four times with 2004 session in CC...every four years. I grew healthy polyps.

    Probably because we are part of the Commonwealth ... and you are not!
    (kidding!)
    My other mail to MiraB wasn't quite so fast. It'll be interesting to see what happens when other USA MBs are sent!

    2nd FART in 2 days ... so a hat trick tomorrow?
    Can't wait to see your Kaffe fabrics ... do you have a plan? I've yet to do something with his fabrics or patterns ... really do like some of the results from his patterns. And to think I have one of his books, thanks to a special friend who cleaned their sewing room and shipped it to me.!!!!

    *yawn*
    I guess I had to get up ... before I go to bed tonight. Next thing will be I will be wide awake all night! argghhhh!

    Hello all

    we had snow storms for three days! it knocked the internet out because the snow was sooo heavy! 12 inches in the higher elevations :O WOW! its hard to believe its April.

    I am in the middle of designing a wedding dress for my sister who is getting hitched in August, and my friend offered for me to come look at her mothers fabric and patterns, it was an EXPERIENCE!!! the woman had EVERYTHING packed into one little room we were able to find everything we could possibly need for the dress and a great pattern also
    this is the same friend that has "C" she had it 20 yrs ago and also 2 yrs ago... she is leaving on friday to fly to a clinic in Mexico to do some more natural treatment to try and cure it, she is very hopeful

    QNinaSue! Good luck with the tests

    back to work I go! see you later ladies
    Candace is Deranged

    Oh how exciting for you, DDamsel... and we all know what comes next after the wedding. YOUR FAVOURITE little bundles of joy! So wedding dress is planned .... and did you find some fabric in her stash to make a wedding quilt too? Prayers and best wishes for your friend. How kind of her to share her Mom's stash with you!

    Anael what a beautiful block, we must have the same taste in fabric, I have the same green you have used..

    Don't get too excited over my Sylvia blocks I only have 4 made, see I need the weekly deadline to keep me on track

    QNS hoping you get good results when you see your doc.

    JeanieG I agree that stuff they make you drink makes you feel so ill, I think that is worse than the procedure, at least you are asleep for that

    Carriem I love your water photos, reminds me of the creeks around here. That happens at least twice every wet season.

    COLD did anyone say cold, I still have the aircon on during the day

    Yesterday I quilted all day and I have finished 10 of the blocks with 10 to go so I am going to get off this computer and put the foot down on the pedal and hopefully I can get a lot done today. And I have 2 sides of the binding sewn down so tonight after I get home from DS's (he is cooking roast lamb) I will put a movie on and hopefully get the rest sewn.

    Qns, Sorry I neglected to wish you well....

    I know what a "fart" is but I couldn't explain to DH what the letters actually mean..I forgot...

    The first photo is of my red & white fat 1/4's...the red is really saturated and has swirls that remind me of roses..

    The second is of the 6 scraps that were rolled up..4 of them are full 1/3 yards the white background one is only a 1/4 yard..the batik is a full 1/2 yd...all of this for 2.75 for all 6..they sell rolled up scraps for .60 cents each or 6/2.75. a real bargain

    The last photo has the colorful 1/3 yd pieces... 4 Kaffe Fasset on bottom left... 4 top left from Free Spirit....the rest 13 fanned out are Painted Summer for In The Beginning...They are so colorful !!!

    I didn't win in Bingo tonite....Maybe next week....
    The weather has been beautiful for the last week..today the temp was 82 degrees...I can't believe I've been here a week already...time really does fly...

    Love, love, love your fabric Honchey! So many pretty pieces! What are you going to do with those with the larger flowers on them? That purple/pink group is especially beautiful!
