    Honchey ... such a great bunch of fabrics. Great deals on those scraps. 1/3 yard really is a lot for small projects.

    For MrHonchey: ... FART = Fabric Acquisition Road Trip! Wait till you tell him about SEX and Cheap SEX!!

    SEX = Stash Enhancement eXperience (or eXcursion)
    Cheap SEX = SEX from a swap or yard sale or guild trade day or thrift store, etc.

    JeanieG ... I think Honchey needs some Red Fusions Mist for her reds! Oh how I love that one I have!

    Honchey, gorgeous fabrics!

    QuiltE, I don't do cheap sex

    I made one block today, thought this one was easy but no......I was wrong. I used PP and because of that Y seams So next time I'll just piece it.
    It's block # 26: Pieced Basket #1

    DD--good to hear from you. Have fun with the wedding gown...it sounds like lots of work. I did sew some simple clothing when I was first married (skirts, jumpers and dresses) for myself and our girls, but never anything too difficult. I never did get the hang of zippers so always altered a pattern to put elastic or buttons on it.

    Honchey--looks like some more good finds. Are you shopping again today?

    Anael--another pretty block. You are moving right along on those OTM blocks now that you're started again. How many are in the quilt and what size are they?

    Mirabelle--were you able to get the rest of your blocks quilted?

    Yesterday I got two borders on my BB quilt...just one left and binding. Plus Jan motivated me to do some more sorting in the clubhouse. I now have my furniture rearranged and piles of stuff to sell. Today we have to get school done and then I am heading to town for a new shelf/brackets to hang it. Once that's up I can put my paper craft tubs on that and start filling the other cupboards with fabric...still haven't decided how I am going to sort those. Right now I have my scraps for each quilt together...do you sort by color or size? Or both??

    Thanks Carrie! The blocks differ in size, ranging from 3" to 12", 59 blocks total.

    I don't sort my scraps, I don't have that many! My fabrics are sorted by color.

    So much going on!
    QNS...get your rest. Although it's considered outpatient surgery, it still takes a toll.
    DD...what a busy lady you are. It's been so long since I've done garment sewing, it would be hard for me to go back to it. There was a time that I made all the clothiers for the family except underwear.
    Anael...your OTM blocks are lovely. You do such precise work! Are you holding the twins more these days?
    Honchey...what a haul!! Those are the loud colors that I like too! My LQS doesn't carry much of Fassett but I've always been intrigued by them.
    Jan...while the cats away, the mice will play....but you're washing windows! It's nice to have them done but isn't there something more fun for playing?
    Mirabelle....I like the two threads you're using on the quilt. Such a beautiful job!
    Carrie...sounds like the clubhouse is undergoing a complete overhaul.
    Tweet Tweet.....a little birdie told me that I would be getting a package but not to tell anyone because it was early and then it came flying in!! Can anyone guess who the birdie is? I'll post a picture later today after it gets a little brighter. Thanks everyone for the ohhhh's and awesssss for the Lone Star. Such a nice feeling to have it done that far. Piecing the back hasn't called to me yet. Rain has pretty much stopped but it's colder today so the sewing room is where you'll find me. I have a MB in the process to finish up.....have a great day everyone!!!!s

    Cariem I have 5 blocks left to quilt and they WILL be finished tomorrow, then just the borders and the binding which I hope to be doing the hand sewing by Sunday night. That's the plan anyway.
    Tonight I finished the binding on my PC quilt, so that is all nicely folded and ready to hang in the hall on Thursday when I can take a full photo of it..
    It is past 11pm here so this little chickie is going to put her head on a pillow and dream of quilts

    GG, thanks! No I don't hold the twins more, I only see them once a week. I'm visiting them tomorrow so maybe I can hold one of them again? I hope so.

    I'm done shopping for awhile .....I'm going to pick strawberries this afternoon if it doesn't rain...I need to bring a dessert for the Clubhouse monthly BINGO!!! Yes, it will be the third time this week...I hope I can holler Bingo tonite!
    The social committee collects $1 from everyone if you want dessert then they use those proceeds for the cups, plates, napkins etc..We have a very nice group of people that are very active here...There's supposed to be a Pot Luck next Saturday...I hope someone volunteers to host it...otherwise it's a no go....
    I've been thinking about how I would like to use the "colorful fabric". It was showcased as a large circle machine appliqued on another companion print...I like the concept but found using all the different fabrics a bit too much for my eyes...I'll have to browse thru some books when I go back to work next month...

    I did find a cute pattern..it's called "Pretty Dresses" 16 different strapless scalloped hem dresses on a dress form with hats tilted different ways.. I picked up a kit of the kaffe fasset prints cut especially for this pattern...I really need to practice for using the buttonhole stitch....it is a little entailed but it's something I can put away & then pick up when I need to...
    Yes, it's me!!! I'm the chirper !!! I realized after I mailed the envelope that it was too early...I'm in a another swap here on the board and all 3 envelopes were sent at the same time...Sorry..

    Mine is in the mail, too, Honchey, with everything going on here, it was a detail I took care of before the surgery day.

    Today, I am sore and very tired, so its taking everything easy time and moving v e r y s l o w.

    Loved your selected fabrics, GG and Honchey. Loved Anael posted block, and agreed on everything GG said earlier.

    I buried that durn Farmer Scrap pattern and then could not find it....as I walked into the quilt room this morning, fabric and papers had fallen on the floor from up above somewhere....and there was that durn pattern among the papers and fabric!!! Like the angels had tossed it down from on high last night!! There's a sense of humor there somewhere...

    Like as bfs were loading up their things this morning to go home, and I told my dh to take the eggs from my car to theirs using her plastic bags....but, he says looking puzzled, if I do that they will break!!! No, I said move the cartons of eggs over from my box to theirs!! Had to tell that one to bf before she left!! LOL!!

    Have layout and borders composed for BBs now, and the single border for PC thought out. Now to carry out the plans by Tuesday...

    Ggal--yes the clubhouse is changing...once I made the decision to get a new machine instead of a bigger building this year, I started thinking of ways to use the space better than I already was! How many MBs do you have made so far? I think I have fabric chosen for all of mine, but not blocks yet. April is in the mail and May is ready to go out.

    Mirabelle--great progress! I know you can get it done.

    Honchey--some fresh strawberries sound very yummy! It will be a little while before we start getting good ones in the stores here.

    QNS--sorry you are a little sore today. YAY on finding that pattern you've been hunting for!!!

    Dublb--have a nice time in Brady. Are you just going for the weekend or longer? What class are you taking/did you take?

    Off to turn up the heat in the clubhouse so it is warm in there when we return home this afternoon....

    MiraB ... maybe now that you're java powered, you'll have better success!

    Anael ... another pretty! ... I've been sitting here and looking at it, but don't see why the Y? Oh ... go more often to those darling SewGrands!

    CarrieM ... now if we all were closer, we'd be there for your big sale! My goodness you are organized with all your MB fabrics selected!!!!

    GGal ... You've got to get that backing pieced, so we can see it all finished!! Are you planning to quilt it? or send to the LAQ?

    TweetTweet ... watch that bird doesn't poop on you and your package!!! \
    Now resist ... and DO NOT OPEN!!!!!!!!!!
    The suspense will drive you nuts for the next month!!

    MiraB ... wheeeeeeeeeee!!!! your PC done, and Daisy near to end! Then? Sleep well, my friend!

    Honchey ... you're possessed with the Bingo spirit. mmmmmmmmmmm fresh strawberries! I'm chuckling at the earlybird being YOU!!! ............. with so many of us getting our May blocks done before the April's were even sent, I wondered how long it'd be, before MBs would be gone early!!! Your Pretty Dresses pattern sounds oh so cute!

    QNSue ... so glad for you that your BF was there to take you to the hospital and get you thru your first day. Good thing that avalanche happened in the night ... and not with you under it! So now the decision, continue with your BB quilt? or go back to Farmers Scraps? Rest a lot please, to let your body recover from yesterday.

    DublB ... have good weekend. Look forward to seeing what you create in your class.

    I told you last weekend, I was starting my FFC project. Mission Accomplished and photos were taken ... finally downloaded last night, so here's your sneak peak!!!! ....................

    Nope! Not a wall hanging!!!!

    And those strawberries look oh so luscious and delicious.
    Me-thinks you should skip sharing them with others, and take something else to the GTG.
    Keep the berries, all to yourself!!!!!!!

    You think the same way DH does...He said not to use all of them for tonite...He wants them for his cereal...He did help pick them...I didn't expect him to go into the field but off he went with the bucket....

    I'm just going to rough cut them, add a bit of sugar and put a bowl of cool whip on the side....
    I personally like to dip them into sour cream that's been sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.. Ahhh...so good!!!!

    Fresh picked strawberries; how fabulous!! I had to get my first ones at the store and fix for dh!!

    sneak peek, QuiltE??? Ok, I am using Lisa Cogar's Quilted Devotions 24 Biblical Blocks book on my FFC's 'cause good friends are Heaven Sent. Everything happens for a reason, even the spill last night!! Have four other companion fabrics to add to the original fabric.

    Have the border cut out for the PC quilt, for a Day Bed. Have the four rows sewn together for the BBs...now to sew each row together. (Hint: true blue friends) Looking at FS, but just looking right now.

    mmmmm .... I've never had them with sour cream, sugar and cinnamon ... that sounds oh so delectable!!!
    Good man that he helped you with the picking. Or did he eat more than he picked?
    So ... did you tell him all about SEX and Cheap SEX?

    Something I must remember to try when berries come in season here.
    Wonder if that will ever happen this year?

    When I worked doing catering for private house parties...there would be a decorative cornicopia with strawberries coming out of it and a server with sourcream dip with the sugar and cinnamon...oh it was sooo good...
    I have a request that if possible the creator of a MB hopefully provide a pp pattern or website where the block came from...If it's not too much of an inconvenience...

    No strawberries here and I will have to wait a long time before I can pick them in my backyard!!

    QuiltE, I can visit the twins only once a week I explained the Y seams in the other thread. It's because of the foundation pattern and when I realized this it was too late to start over again without waisting fabric and I hate to do that. So I did Y seams

    It's time to go to sleep, it's 11.30 pm here already! Need to feed killer kitty and CU all tomorrow!
