    YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
    Tomorrow the twins are going to the last hospital before coming home. They will be in the same town my DS and DDIL are living Again one step closer to home.
    Isa has to go back to Enschede next week because the eye doc wants to see her. No need for a procedure yet but we still have to wait for her eyes to get better.
    Imagine they still shouldn't be here, due date is Saturday April 27th.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Anael - how adorable she is. It is so amazing that that precious little girl is looking so big and healthy. What a delight it must be to be able to cuddle with her.

    Dublb--I never commented on your flowers...all are very nice (both real and embroidered).

    Ggal--Thank you for the offer of your extra feet. So did you spend time in the yard or trying out your new machine today?

    Janie--Sounds like you might have had your hands full with 5yo twins! Do they live near by?

    Honchey--I can pretty much use any of my decorative stitches using my walking foot. I hope it works for you too! I get "pretty" quilting that way even if I don't FMQ yet.

    Anael--that is some very exciting news for the twins and their family too!! YAY!

    QNS--beautiful block...great job Jan!

    Ok...now that I caught up on everybody. I have some exciting things to share...

    I got TWO squishies in the mail today...both from Canada! One is my MB from Janie...it is so pretty. The greens and yellow match the flowers in the block from Mirabelle. Thank you Janie!!

    The other is some telephone fabric from QE. For those who don't remember, DH works for a telephone company. She sent me a FQ as a thank you when hosting the BB swap and I had her pick me up some more. I figure I am her shopper here in the US so she can be mine there in Canada.

    I was able to get my fabrics sorted further (were done by color last weekend)...now are folded and/or put into small tubs by color. (see pictures below) I just have my flannels to do and those will go in another cupboard like this one.

    Lastly I got my first airplane block PP'd...just 13 more! I have all the 4Ps done that will alternate. Then I will have several propellers and windsocks to do. The triangle on the front of the plane needs to be appliqued. What are your opinions of the size? Color? Any ideas?? I am not sure I like it. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the plane is a dark navy with some tone-on-tone texture.

    Question: Guess what's on my deck?

    JeanieG
    ... I have not sewn on it yet, though I did quite a bit of sewing on the showroom model yesterday. Tonight I got it all unpacked, and so many pieces to figure out what to do with them!

    DublB ... Oh My Goodness, isn't that just darling!!!! I didn't trim the blocks yet, so I have some leeway there. From here, I don;t know what you are fussing about? Looks cute and perfect to me!

    Anael ... awwwwwwwww so sweet and precious, with a Grandma's love watching over! Remember ... theft is good! This IS exciting!!!!!!!! And now I just saw the comparison pic from birth to current! WOW!!! And even more great news, with them getting almost home! Has Mick started to realize they will soon be invading his private domain?

    GGal ... Yessssssssssssss!!!! I'm sure you're going to love this machine! With your kind and generous offer to CarrieM, I'm thinking you had a 6600 before. Some nice improvements with your new machine. CarrieM knows that I had hoped to give her my extras, but they emphasized they wanted all to help them sell the used machine, so I'm glad that you were able to help her with some extra things. Have a great time on your little tour tomorrow ... and perhaps some FARTing will result too?

    JanieW ... calling your machine names, is not good! It will issue its own revenge! I have a specialty one very nearby which just might have it, if we have them down here. A fun and perhaps tiring day with the twins?

    Honchey ... Oh my, azaleas growing in the natural environment must be beautiful! I love them, just as a potted plant, so would be in heaven seeing them growing amass. Oh Oh ... one lost USB stick! Looks in the least likely place for it, and that's where it will be.

    JanRN and QNSue ... oh me oh my ... what a beautiful block. Love the contrasts of the fabrics. The flowers really shine bright with that red (or is it rust?). And I think I detect some metallic glints in there too. How nice to get some Taste of Home. Any of the Reiman PUblications mags are great. Over the years, I've got many favourite recipes thanks to them!

    CarrieM and JanieW ... great green block! I really like the two fabric look of it.

    CarrieM .. glad that the fabric got thru to you. Does your DH know yet? Or is it a surprise, to come, for him? Great progress on your stash sorting! The airplane quilt is going to be a fun one to work on ... what size are the blocks?




    Answer: Snow Pellets ... a big shower of the idiotic things! ggrrrrrr!!!!!

    Glad you like your block, Carrie and I'm relieved to hear it arrived. Our twin grandsons are 2 of the six grandkids and they live in our city. We have them once a week for a morning . They are pretty good kids, so not really a handful, but they keep us busy in a good way.

    QNS and JanRN that is a gorgeous block. Lovely colours.

    QuiltE, We had a great morning with the twins. They have kinder in the PM so we just have them for a couple of hours, feed them and drive them to school. They are good kids so it is a fun time.

    I played a bit with my pansy fabric this afternoon, but I want to do a bit more so I'm out of here.

    This one's for you, QuiltE

    I can't believe how much goes on in a few days time!
    Between babies and OTM, Anael's been busy!
    The mystery blocks are looking great. So nice to see them.
    Finally have my machine part so I can get to sewing tomorrow night. Weather too good to stay indoors and DH will have me in the fields soon. Today made a road trip to get peas and barley (2 hours one way) so maybe it will actually get into the ground!
    QE--oh joy--a new toy! Always fun to play and know you will use all the features it has to offer. Yes I had seen the GMFG finish--but really didn't want to make another 60 of the little buggers. Doesn't it make a nice finish though.
    Thanks for the water update Carrie. Need to check on family in central Illinois--Peoria area is getting hit hard now. A nice finish to the BB.
    Glad all's well, QNS. And prayers going out for you too Jeanie. Hey the bad days just let us appreciate the good ones!
    Love the flowers ladies. 4 yo picked the first scilla for me while I was road tripping. Looked kind of ragged when it got to me late in the afternoon, but can't you feel spring in the air. Yes I hope that snowman message gets through to the PTB (powers that be).
    Oh and mirabelle just comes up with another beauty she just "found" in her cupboard. Oh wait there's two. Your work is remarkable--ask me how I know--Isn't this a winner. Thanks so much Karen. Anael's advice was perfect. And looks great with DD's lovely block.Name:  002.JPG

    Wow what a lot of chatter..
    Beautiful flowers and even more beautiful baby with a beaming Grandmother.
    Beautiful MB's. OK I am so glad you liked the block, the Dutch Blues really threw me a curve ball but with Anael's help and DH googling Delft China I think I got it right.

    Thank you also for all your kind words, things apparently heated up quite a bit after I left and the two "ladies" involved are to apologise to me next week. If not they will not be invited to renew their membership. Apparently the members who hears the exchange were horrified but wanted to wait until after I had left to confront the pair. But you know I am too old for this C#$%, I really don't care. I am not going to quilt next week, just don't feel that I need to justify myself..

    If I have missed anybody please forgive me, have to cook dinner and I am so tired, instead of an hour and a half to get home took me almost 2 hours, aaarrrggghhh road works and slow drivers drive me nuts

    ...and the mystery blocks just keep coming in.
    Jan...I have some if the floral fabric in the block you sent QNS...what a great block.
    Carrie...Janie got all of the points perfect. I still have to get the perfect size on the foundation printout to work on yours more. It's getting closer and I did sew a block on my new machine yesterday as well as finish getting the ends if the garden bed boards cut and in place. Did a hands and knees tour of the berry patch to pull the offending weeds and more planning for a new bed beside the garden. Like a quilt...there is always room for one more border.
    OK....what a beautiful feathered star from Mirabellle! That's the class project for next month but none of the patterns make a 12 inch block so I'm passing that one up.
    Thanks for all of the spring flower pictures. My lilacs are in bud and the magnolia tree down the street continues to bloom with this cooler weather.
    Anael....what a relief to have the twins so much closer. Isa has that marshmellowy....soft and squeezable.... of a very healthy baby!
    Mirabelle....your friends are all taking up for you. Hooray! It sounds like all you have to do is take care of yourself. What a great group!
    Janie...how nice it is that you are close to some of your GKs. That's the way it should be.
    QuiltE...come on now. Get In the saddle with that machine and show it that you have the reins and it has to behave....and the one talking had her machine talk back when paper piecing yesterday. It's something when the machines are smarter than we are!!!
    i'm out of here to go to the quilt show. Have a good day everyone!

    In my email Ladybug sent me news of Hoffman's new batik fabric, "Springtime in the Rockies" with a quilt fabric and pattern to us it. Beautiful. Wow. Have to think about that one.

    Love your duck names, DD. Our big white duck is "Baby Huey" and the black one is also named for cartoon character "Daffy"; others are not named.

    Beautiful MB posted. Everyone outdid themselves!!

    Mirabelle, its good that people stood with you and supported you so well. It sounds like you are well loved and appreciated in your group....what more can a quilter ask for? You do associate with smart & reasonable people...like we have on this PC board!!

    Sure its: www.ladybugquilts.com address is Colorado Springs, Colorado. Free newsletter. I do the www.FabHopShop.com that lists over 130 quilt shops in USA and Canada...you find the 'bunny' at each site...the best shops will list where to find the bunny on their 'cover' page. I have won about four different certificates for $10.00; a yard of four different fabric pieces, so its fun and kills some time on the computer. And I get to travel free of charge seeing all the latest and displays at each shop. Too bad I don't have the $$$ to spend or it could get very wild.

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee.have my hair cut and feeling good!!! Time to do therapy in the quilt room!!

    Oh Mirabelle Ya made a wonderful Feathered Star for OK! I'm sure she'll treasure it.
    DD what cute names for your ducks. They make me smile. It's so cool that ya were able at fix your fridge.

    DDIL & I were supposed ta take the boys ta the Dr th'smornin' but that appmnt was canceled so we went ta an Estate sale in West Odessa. I bought a Keyboard (like a piano) for my DGD & DGS that live in Houston. Now I'm sleepy.

    I did it! I ordered from Ladybug Quilts, the whole Tahiti Mist Kit and hope I make it as well as the picture. I thought they had a reasonable price on it, for when i choose fabric for a quilt it totals more that what they are charging for it.

    Hooray, QuiltE finally went to the PO; she has been so busy playing with that new sewing machine so she did not go to the PO for a whole week!! Little did she know what was waiting for her there.

    I finally ordered from Fabric Depot; got 35% of the two bolts of fabric, got two backings for two quilts, then got an additional 30% off the order.,,'cause of the stolen cc numbers last fall. Sweet deal.

    Have the four squares almost done for the center of the Triangle Stars....had to do first one over 'cause I did not know enough to know the 2 7/8 squares had to be trimmed down to 2 1/2 before sewing together...wow, just 448 squares to do!!

    So QNS is getting more fabric for more quilts. Anxious to see the results!
    Did I miss something? GGal has a new toy too?
    DD you are one inventive lady--add washing repairwoman to your bio!! Love the ducks names, too.
    Worked in sewing area--again. Biggest accomplishments are outside--put up the little greenhouse I bought earlier and transferred all my plants to it this morning. Perfect day to move them outside. Then to the beds I went--planted 8 purple passion asparagus crowns-will wait on the MWashington seedlings I've got in the ghouse. Then planted Dutch Iris, day lilies and lilies in bed around the LP tank--need to plant some nasturtiums there later. Next headed to the rejuvenated bed by the farm sign at the end of the lane. Two red peonies, some white lilies, red lilies, and red phlox. Have a couple of red clematis growing in dirt in the ghouse as well as some yellow dahlias. Will plant some red morning glories to grow on the fence until clematis get going. Going to divide some Stella D'Oro day lilies next week--so lots of red/white/ and yellow at the end of the lane.
    Here's a pic of the ghouse. I put it on the porch (covered) and DH tied it down with some twine string (aka farmer's duct tape) when the wind started blowing. Thanks dear.Name:  index.jpg
