    Oh I am so tickled you got it, Jan! It's a simple block to do and one can showcase a really pretty fabric in the center too. Thanks everyone. It's nice to see the blocks to help give cohesion to the MB color/design preferences. I kept looking at Carrie's Night and Day for comparison, and thought yellow would look nice on the the points! Had it all finished and then it dawned on me. Jan doesn't do yellow! This is a soft buttery color and shouldn't yell too loud at you! FYI my kitchen/great room is all yellow!

    DD beautiful Hearts and Gizzards for Honchey!

    Jeanie
    before long you'll be enjoying the new surroundings! Deep breaths until then.

    QNS--you only live once and we are never too old to learn! Enjoy.

    Snow update--grass is no longer showing and it's still snowing. Birds don't know what to do--been on the lane all morning--not too many worms there!

    CarrieM .. so glad to know your DD is feeling better. Now to hope that she continues to be migraine-free. Was this her first? My table is a locally made one by a young chap. His Mother has an LQS, so his first was built to her dream specs. From there, he turned it into a full time business, once he graduated as an Engineer! I know I will like it ... just that right now I'm having problems deciding what to put where!

    Jan & Ok...What a striking block and the yellow sets if off perfectly...I love it..great choice OK! and lucky you Jan...

    Lots of activity going on here and I'll be adding to it in a couple of days....June's MB is going to be typed up tonite. Yes, June already...Time's flying when you're having fun, fun, fun...

    The pineapple cake is too sweet for my taste...I'm wondering if it could be made using a regular yellow cake mix instead of the angel food mix... QuiltE what cake mix do you use with the cherry filling??

    Honchey ... Angel Food Cake mix and any pie filling ... mix and bake just the same as your pineapple cake. Cherry pie filling gives you a pretty pink cake with the red cherries showing quite nicely when cut. If you want a Faux Black Forest Cake, mix 1/3 cup bakers cocoa with the cake mix, and then mix with the cherry pie filling. Another favourite of mine (more so in the autumn) is apple pie filling. I usually add extra spices ... all because I really like cinnamon and hte other warm spices.

    I promised to take pictures of my garden. As I said, it's a tiny backyard, nothing special.

    Looks very special to me; like its a prized area, well loved and cared for and gives enjoyment back that puts a smile on your face.

    Woke up to snow today. Covers the grass. Need sunshine inside and out.

    Anael ... oh but it IS special ... it's your sanctuary and I can see why you enjoy being out there. You've made it so that it's like an extra room to your home. Complete with forget-me-nots blooming ... and the others, perhaps grape hyacinth? And irises to come! Even an "Ode to Mom"!!

    QNSue ... The good news is that you can declare a snEw Day and use that new machine!

    OKSGlad ... another snEw Day?

    DublB ... such a contrast ... you'd better send some of that warmth northbound to melt things for QNSue and OKSGlad!

    Thanks QuiltE and yes, grape hyacinth.

    I still don't know the name of my Ode to my Mom When she passed away I found 3 cuttings in a pot in the kitchen so I took them with me and hoped for the best. 15 years later it's still alive and doing great!

    Anael....a walled garden...what a beautiful, serene retreat! The twins will enjoy it too next year! Does Mick like to dig in the dirt?
    Jan...a beautiful block from OK. I have yours made for .....don't know when....we'll both be surprised.
    Honchey...I'm ready for the June block announcement. What a lot if patience to make those little Hexies. So cute!
    QuiltE....so you not only got a new machine, you got an entire new studio? What a way to go!! I will ask my DH to cut out a larger opening in the Gidget table I have. I've wanted to get things straightened up a bit first and I keep getting sidetracked.
    Jeanie...this is a once in a lifetime to get those little features that make a kitchen so functional as well as beautiful. Since you have a backup kitchen in your RV, don't leave anything out that you think you would really like if the budget can take it. Just pretend that you're at the beach with your RVing friends! Congratulations on getting the PC back pieced. Will you quilt it yourself?
    Dubib....how do you like your embroidery machine? Happy belated birthday too
    Carrie...hope you had a nice day with DH. Every anniversary is to celebrated!
    QNS...no snow here but it is raining and much cooler than the past couple of days.
    Today is DH's birthday...we're the same age until my birthday in September. He doesn't like to make a big deal of it but the coffee pot quit yesterday and the backup one is not functioning to his likes so there will be a trip to town to get a new one.
    Janie....did you get snow like QNS and OK?

    LOL GG I have no dirt to dig in He likes playing with all the fallen leaves and I always give him water to play with. One day he stumbled and fell into the water. He didn't like it

    QNS, I just sent you a picture of the front of my house.

    Anael ... I bet if you did a close up pic, one of our resident gardeners would ID it pretty quick for you!

    GGal ... I've been getting sidetracked too! The new machine would not fit into my old table, so I traded it with my machine. I didn't really want to get a new table, but at the same time, I refused to go back to non-table. I would have been content with the same style of table as the Janome, but none fit the machine. It sure added to the upgrade expense ... so I was relieved that in the midst of it all, I found out I was getting the healthy income tax refund!

    Honchey--another thing you can do with a cake mix is "crisps"...my favorite is apple. I cut up 5-6 apples (Granny Smith), sprinkle a little cinnamon on and put in the pan (9x9). In the microwave melt a stick of margarine and stir in dry cake mix (we like Betty Crocker Golden Vanilla, but any vanilla, white or yellow will work) until crumbly...then crumble on top of apples. Some people use the canned pie filling...I have tried it with canned cherries (used 2 cans for one box of cake mix) and blueberries (not together). I have also done it with frozen peaches...added some sugar to these, but it was several years ago so can't remember how much. Anyway you just bake at 350* until the apples are tender or other fruit is bubbly.

    QE--not DD's first migraine just the first to be this bad and last 2 days with no relief.

    Anael--very pretty garden area. Looks like a nice sunny day there! Sorry no help in identifying your pretty plant.

    We have rain and cold (30s) today. I had 2 daffodils come up by the end of our driveway so had one of the kids cut them yesterday...didn't want them to die in the cold. Nice to have a little color on the table. I just got done making some broccoli and cheese soup. It will be good for lunch and maybe supper too.

    Housework done...off to the clubhouse early today. The planes *will* get done today and maybe I'll even start on the propellers.

    <<<<<<< Rushing off to CarrieM's for Broccoli Cheese Soup ... Oh So Delicious!!!

    CarrieM ... here's hoping she's OK now, for a long time. Happy Flying with those planes today!

    Anael ... I am no arborist or gardener, but me thinks that'd be an euonymous. There's many different varieties of them from variegated yellow/green to white/green, to plain greens of all shades. If you want it to go forth and multiply, you should be able to root some shoots, either by bending them down from the plant and covering with soil or breaking some off and doing the same or sticking into some water.

    QuiltE, thanks very much! It's this one: Euonymus fornunei 'Emerald & Gold'. Found it on the internet

    It multiplies on it's own I don't have to do anything, just dig up the shoots with roots. I gave a few to friends but never heard how they were doing. This year I want some in my front yard as well so I hope it multiplies again

    Gals, I do not mind how you bake a cake like that, just pass it around in the virtual RV...it looks soooo good!

    I have taken the new machine out of the bag this morning and started the process of 'learning' the new machine...now have it almost hooked up to power...dry run is first learning where and what all the buttons are.

    Anael, your garden is beautiful. What a pleasant place to "stop and smell the roses"--even if you don't grow roses. Or just enjoy a cup of tea--I mean coffee--I know how the Dutch love their "kaffe". Love the brick walk ways. When we were in Holland in 2001 we visited a dairy farm with a driveway of brick--every inch of space utilized with style.

    Sidetracked, GGal? I know--that's what's happening in my space and I am so antsy to get sewing, but want my space workable, too. Another snew day in store, QE

    Carrie I was thinking chili today, but the cheese broccoli soup sounds delicious. In the fall I often make big batches of it from the side shoots from the garden. My MIL loved it too. I feel so bad for DD to have to deal with migraines at such a tender age. Hope that it doesn't happen too often.

    QNS--you're just like a kid with a new toy!! Thanks for the pictures.

    Off to make that chili and then keep sorting and petting fabrics.

    Thank you OK! I do grow roses, just a few but they're not blooming yet!
    You have to come and visit again, so you can have a 'koffie' with me in my garden
    Because I can't mow anymore I have brick walk ways and I like it.

    Oh, chili! That's a good idea. I can do that tomorrow!

    I made up some beef vegetable soup yesterday and Bar-b-qued pork ribs and stove top baked sirloin steak today... and dh is asleep, so will eat with him later.

    'dry run' , Anael, is what we did in home economics in high school with sewing machines before we turned them on, getting to know all the buttons and dials.

    I thought it would be that QNS. I always turn on my machines and learn while working. I don't have the patience to sit and find out where all the buttons and dials are for without actually doing something.

    I used to go through the book, doing all the various stitches and stapling the 'sample' in the book for future references. Fortunately, the new one is similar to my older Bernina, it is just updating myself on the changes this time.
