    Mirabelle--very nice to have a DS to cook for you. How is the quilting coming along?

    Anael--have a great time with your friend...your sewing will be there when you return.

    Today is our 16th Anniversary. I am meeting DH for lunch (he works about 10min away) and he offered to make steaks for supper, but I am thinking we will just wait til the weekend to do that since it cooled off again and is supposed to be raining tonight.

    Sewing this morning and this afternoon...off to the clubhouse now. Hope everyone has a great day!

    So much to catch up on....house sold....yay Jan! Lots purchased...yay, Bev! Sweet new quilting machine...yay QNS!
    FARTS....yay Jan, QNS, and Honchey! No more static from the Patchwork group and DS cooking for you..yay Mirabelle. Twins cuddling so fat and sassy....yay Anael! Yard loosing it's winter blahs....yay OK! DD better and school almost over.....yay Carrie. Remodeling kitchen progressing....yay, Jeanie. It all calls for celebrating. I did finish piecing the back for the Lone Star so it's a matter of getting it to the quilter. I've practiced FMQing on my new machine and I see real possibilities. I need the inset area on my sewing table enlarged so is sits flush. I've had a design for a MB in mind since we started this but had to resize it and change colors but I should finish that today. These have been so much fun for me to make....finding the right pattern and fabric for that special person....!!! I did get some work done in the garden too and it's looking good. I transplanted a redbud tree to a bed at the edge of the garden Tuesday. I hope it does well. It is such a beautiful tree and I've wanted one since I first saw them in the woods years ago. Today I get a haircut and maybe more gardening before the rain sets in again. Have a good day everyone!

    I've got my spacing back ... though I had to go to Google Chrome.
    Couldn't get IE10 to cooperate!

    MiraB .. nah not crazy, just possessed! You'll do a great job with it. Are you feeling bored, doing all the 1/2 inch rows? It'll sure be test of your keeping straight! Hope you enjoyed your supper with your DS. So nice, that he invites you ... good payment for the quilts he receives!

    CarrieM ... Happy 16th Anniversary!!!! How nice that you and your DH are getting together for lunch. Do hope your DD is feeling better today. Perhaps a quiet day, to continue the recover? I'm sure with your own migraine experiences, you have full empathy for her. Yea for new fabric too!

    QNSue ... WOW!! what a grand day you had!!!! Being that you were at Creekside, did you take your PC for them to quilt? Your Tahiti kit sure came quick ... and how nice that you got fabrics for Irish for your DH. Perhaps do a sleepover on the 18th at your BFs, so you can go for the lesson. It'll be well worth it.

    JanRN ... a red letter day for you too! Finding an exceptional LQS and selling your Mom's home. I know it'll still be a tug at your ♥ to say good bye to that part of your life. Looks like that new LQS is a real gem. I "think" I saw that PP technique somewhere on the web a while back. What is the woman's name? or the technique name? It might jog my brain! And do tell us more about Big and Little Feet!

    DublB ... Congratulations on the double lot purchase!

    Honchey ... and your idea is?????????????? Well, you know that my FFC project has been started and what it is ... now for others? Here;s hoping the postie arrives with your MB!

    CarrieM ... as the official keeper tracker ... who else does not have their MB, other than Honchey?

    GGal ... glad you are getting lots of practice with your new machine. What's wrong that the insert is not sitting flush? Do you have the Janome table and insert? or? I'd never heard of a Red Bud Tree, so went off ISO ... almost looks like a cross between a lilac and flowering crab apple. Oh so pretty!!!!!!!

    To add to all the exciting news from all ... I got my new sewing machine table/desk on Tuesday. A friend helped me unload it yesterday and we put it together. Now to "move in" ... so many places to put things!! I can see that I'll put things in and then move them several times before I have them where I want! (ten drawers, with dividers to make cubbies ... and 2 of the drawers for thread! ) Shortening my WORK day today, so I can get some of that transition done.

    In a word--SNOW! Lucky not an hour north as Rochester has 10" and still snowing and to the NW Owatonna has 15". I'm staying in today. Glad I didn't put plants in the garden!

    Brrrr. Snow. Grandson and SIL are building a snowman on their yard in NE. Just rain here and cold. But will warm up on Saturday.

    I am not getting any younger; so called Bernina back and ordered an embroidery machine (and table, etc.,) to complete the sewing room line up. Will pick it up on the 18th; sometime between now and then I will confess to dh. What a Mothers Day I am going to have!!!

    Poor dh thought he would get my Bernina I am using now; he only has three sewing machines he complains about all the time. No way. That is my piecing machine. New one is my Quilting only machine...free form or patterns on small things...cannot handle the heavy queen or king size, rather let the Moss sisters do that for me.

    OKSGlad ... good for you, declare yourself a SNEW DAY!!! Your plants will thank you for keeping them in their nice and cosy greenhouse!!

    QNSue .... Happy Mother's Day!!!!! Maybe you can get DD/DSIL to help you with your ploy? So which embroidery machine did you go for? Looks like you are just evening the # up with your DH ... he has 3, now you have 3!

    Honchey and DDamsel ... oh so beautiful!!! That fits your MB wish list to a T, if I remember correctly. Absolutely outstanding, stunning, pretty, old-fashioned, delicate, delightful .... so man more words to describe it!

    Honchey ... Oh good! we don't need too much suspense around these parts!!

    Honchey....what a beautiful block from DD. worth waiting for.
    QNS....isn't it nice when dreams come true? How nice that you will have such a nice sewing setup. It can be your "diet" since it will keep you so busy that the kitchen time becomes leaner and everyone else in the house!
    QuiltE... I have a Gidget II sewing table and the opening isn't the right size for my machine. My sewing room is so small that new cabinetry like you and QNS now have just wouldn't fit. I do dream of a larger space but can't see that happening any time soon.
    Here is a sale that some of you might be interested in. I found a book here that I've been on the lookout for. Maybe you will too.

    GGal ... I know, I am lucky to have the luxury of space. I'm not sure if you are saying the depth is too shallow for your machine to sit flush? or the hole not big enough for your machine to go in? Could you get someone to renovate your table? And work with one of the clear inserts? Or ... get plexi cut to the size you need/want to fill the gaps. Hope you can get it sorted out soon enough, to make your stitching easier.

    JanieW
    , for sure will recognize the "medallion" in this.
    Some of you might too, as I understand Tim Hortons is now south of the border!
    The fabric appears to be from Stonehenge's Oh Canada collection from last year.
    And no ... I did not make it ... it was forwarded to me by someone who spotted it on the web.
    Priceless!!!!

    Wow twelve messages so far this morning! We are a real productive group, I must say!

    Honchey, you received a marvelous block from DD! Wow!!

    Congrats Jan on the selling of your mom's house. It has taken a long time, but is finally done! Hurrah!

    Gee, I don't know about all you guys getting new machines! Wow, how great is that! Congrats!

    We have been at a standstill the past week on my house. I am not a patient person, so am getting real aggravated. ServPro who does the clean up has had to wait for my Homeowners Co. to approve the invoices so they can do the work. That has gone round and round a couple of times, but ServPro got the go ahead day before yesterday. I have moved all the food out of the cupboards, and Serv Pro is sending someone to pack up all the remaining stuff in my kitchen and dining room as everything has to be moved out. They have to tear out the kitchen cabinets, and cut 2 feet off the drywall in the living room to clean where the cabinets were. Also the carpet and pad have to be taken out of the living room too. ServPro said his part of the clean up will take about a week (everything has to dry out after he does the clean up). Then I have to hire a contractor to replace the 2 ft of drywall and put new baseboards in. I have to get new carpet, and decide on new kitchen cabinets. I had a guy come and measure the kitchen for the new cabinets, but I will have to decide which ones I want and work with a designer (free at Home Depot) for the kitchen layout. I will also get another design workup from someone else, might as well get all the ideas I can. I'm not sure what the Insurance Co. will give me for the new cabinets yet, but doubt it will cover them all. Just my gut feeling!

    JeanieG ... I feel for you! Renos alone create a lot of stress ... and to be forced into them, when you are not planning on doing so, I'm sure, only makes it worse. Then to have to work "with" insurance, and those who it's just a "job" ... and not affecting their life, sadly, it all goes at a snail's pace. From watching others deal with similar to you, and having gone thru extensive renos (choice, not forced, like you are) my best advice is to document every little conversation and every little promise ... and keep nailing them down with definitives, that may haunt them later .......... on this date you told me on this date that you'd have this done, or would call me back, or or ..... etc.

    Patient I am NOT, either ... so I can totally understand what you are and will be dealing with.

    Good Luck ... and sew sew sew yourself into oblivion to get thru it!

    Ok QuiltE, here is my idea of something different for your square....I did hold back on including a little extra "something" for when it's completed and I don't mean my name !!
    I'm still undecided where and what combination and how many....

    I also baked a "dump pineapple/angelfood cake" it was still in the oven...going to the RV to rest a bit...NOT...

    HOnchey, your block for QuiltE is going to be lovely! And your cake......it's almost bed time here but I do want a piece of that cake Pineapple, YUM

    I had a great time with my friend this afternoon. We hadn't seen each other in quite some time (at least 6 months) but we talked a lot on the phone. It was good to see her again.

    Latest news on the twins: if Bram had not caught a cold they would have been ready to go home beginning of next week!!! But Bram still needs oxigen because of his cold so no going home yet. It's ok though, we thought they would come home end of May.

    Tomorrow is sewing day I will show you what I made when it's finished It has been a long time since I made some cloths for myself and though I once was a seamstress (among other professions LOL) I have to build up some confidence again.

    Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! You've come up with one grandiose idea, Honchey!!!
    I an SO excited and thrilled .... your hexies must be itty-bitty to fit on that square.
    .......... while the something extra is not your name, please don't forget to sign your masterpiece!
    The cake smells oh so good! .... try it sometime with a can of cherry pie filling! Deeeeeeeelicious!

    Anael ... so glad that you had a great GTG with your friend. What exciting news to know the SewGrands will soon be home!! So a seamstress you are ... waiting to see what you have made for yourself!

    Anne, that is a beautiful block from DD. Handwork!! Wow that is special.

    QNS, yay for you!!! With all you do for everyone else it's time to do something for yourself. Enjoy it!

    Jeanie, would not want to live thru another remodel. When we did our kitchen it was supposed to take 3-4 wks. Everyday the contractor would say 3-4 wks. After the first 3-4 wks he was still saying 3-4 wks LOL. We had the microwave in the dining room and did dishes in the powder room sink. Took about 12 wks total (I guess 3-4 wks times 3 LOL).

    And ladies look at the beautiful block I got in the mail today from OKSewGlad. It's so awesome. The pattern is from Quilters Cache called On the Oregon Trail. OK did a great job. She also sent me some yellow fabric; she's making me step out of my comfort zone. I think she's in cahoots with QE! Thank you, OK.Name:  OKSewGlad.jpg

    Yep 2 girls are here packing up the kitchen/dining room. I've almost finished my PC Quilt backing. Yeah!

    Jan, that is a beautiful block you got there! This is so fun to see what everyone gets, and exciting to get that squishy in the mail!

    JanRN and OKSGlad ... What a great block. Coordinates so well with #1 ... and even some mellow yellow JanRN to appreciate!

    JanRN ... guess that builder got done early .... 3 to 4 weeks, time 3 to 4 times would have been 16 weeks! I swear, we did not conspire. Remember I have not been a yellow lover ... though I am seeing the value of yellow and am doing better at including in projects.

    OKSGlad ... does butter yellow/gold count? I'm more likely to lean to that than a true yellow.

    JeanieG ... How did you feel having the girls packing up your things? Hope you are keeping an inventory to know what there is.

    Soon be time for we Internationals to dispatch our May blocks!!!
    And then the fun starts again!!! ........... Yippeeeee!!

    Beautiful block, JanRN, that OK did for you. Nice to know its name and where the pattern came from.

    QuiltE, no picture yet of your set up and new machine??

    I will not have my setup done til after May 18th, so no pictures until after that date...that is when I pick up the rest of the stuff.

    No snow here, but Iowa and Wisconsin got snow...we had to move the little chicks and ducks back inside the garage 'cause it got too *cold* outside for them. Those ladies in a hurry to put away their winter clothes had to dig them out again!! Enough of this cold wet weather!! Need sunshine...

    QNSue ... I'm a long way from thinking of photos. All is a disaster right now, as I have everything ripped apart and now trying to resettle things. Unfortunately, I can only see the way I have had things situated for so long, as being the "right" way. Thus, the dilemma of how/where to relocate things!! Guess what? my biggest dilemma are my two garbage cans at the machine, one for recycle and one for the real garbage! There was a perfect nook for them before, but not now. I think there's going to have to be a new garbage system!

    QE--DD is continuing to feel better. When she went to bed last night I told her I wasn't waking her up and that if she felt like it when she got up I would take her to school. She woke up at 6:30 this morning with no headache and wanted to go so was ready when the bus got here. You asked about the "last MB" and Jan has already answered by sharing her block. How exciting about your new table! What kind did you get? You'll have to share a picture when you get it and your machine set up.

    OK--No snow here thankfully. It rained and has gotten colder most of the day though. Were you able to get some sewing done?

    QNS--you really are going all out...good for you! Enjoy your new machines.

    Honchey--you got a very pretty block! Great job DD.

    Jeanie--Sorry to hear about the amount of work that needs to be done to your house...at least you have your RV. Hopefully things will go well for you.

    Honchey--your little "flowers" are going to be very cute on the little FFC block. I mailed mine back to QE but it isn't near as fancy as yours and the others whose we've seen. Your cake looks yummy! My DMIL made me an apple pie while I was at work yesterday...it is good. I am happy to share in the virtual RV.

    Anael--great to hear your time with friend was so good. How exciting that the twins are close to going home.

    Jan--Your MB is a great variety of b/w fabrics and yellow is good too. Funny I was thinking about putting a little yellow in my block for you too.

    QNS--I agree...sunshine can come and stay!!

    MBs are now all received (by my count)...is anyone still waiting that I missed???

    I got my plane wings all done today and the plane bodies trimmed. I need to bring them in to pin tonight so I can sew them tomorrow. After lunch w/DH I started playing around with designs for a quilt I am making for a friend. Then my mom stopped by and we visited until DH got home.
