    Good news all around is wonderful to wake up too and read about...from bad sinus attack at 4 am this morning. Dudlb, so happy for you.

    Mirabelle, another beautiful job on a quilt. You are really getting great at that work!!

    Carrie, great you got the Half yard and more book and the queen size looks great as well. None of mine will be queen size; too big to handle well for now...don't know who will get the quilt yet. Also making the second one for dh.

    Honchey, I wrote on line I was doing Half yard and more quilt called Irish Mist and others have joined me in making it. Lets see if I can name everyone now on to it too, and IF I skip a name, please correct me, folks, :

    JanieW
    Dearranged Damsel
    Mirabelle
    Carrie

    And my mind is blank....help! Add your name to the list if you are doing it, please. Thanks.

    GardenGal, I am green with envy over OksewGlad's supply of natural garden boost, too. No substitute for the real thing.

    Many things to do today...I had better get started, even with baby steps, I can inch my way through today...

    I hope you can get over the sinus attack soon, QNS. Sinus problems are no fun.

    I have the twin grands coming this morning til it's time to take them to kinder this afternoon. Then I am skyping with grandson who lives away this afternoon. I have gardening to do as well and it's uncharacteristically windy today so I am having a wee pout because I hate wind.

    I don't know when I can get to sort out which fabrics I will use for Irish Mist, but it won't be today!

    Have a good one, everybody.

    Best thing about Irish Mist is that it has no deadlines; none. It is all for fun. It will interesting to see everyone's colors when they post their "middle" of the quilt; then it has the upper or head, and the lower, or foot section. It can be done with any light, dark and four mediums with a background. The light, dark and four mediums are all half yards. to do the border around the middle, more dark, and for the border, it echos the middle as well. its set into the background which takes around 2 and 2/3 or something like that.

    Mirabelle - that quilt is spectacular. I'm, like everyone else here, in awe of your beautiful quilting!

    dublb - good luck on getting the house you want. The waiting is always hard!

    QNS - sinus problems are no fun! I've had my share of sinus infections in the past too.

    Jan - how exciting to get a new car!

    Sue, I'm green with envy! Beautiful !!!!!!

    Latest update on the twins: Isa is ready to go home. Bram isn't. He still needs oxygen. Starting Monday they will try and lower it again, last time earlier this week it didn't work out well. So he might go home with oxygen. My DDIL is not too happy about that, neither is my DS. In a week there will be another meeting with the doctors. Isa will stay in hospital as long as possible because they don't want to separate the twins.
    QNS, the lastest pictures I posted are from last Sunday. I don't have new ones. As soon as I have new pics, I will post them here.

    QNS - What wonderful photos of you flowers. Just lovely!

    ServPro - the clean up company has almost finished all of their work. They will use a solution and steam clean the area that had the bacteria, then use dehumidifiers (again!) for a day or so to dry it up. The testing company will be here on Friday to retest for the mold, asbestos and bacteria, and if all is clear we can get a contractor in to repair all the drywall that was removed. I have another company coming in to give me a design and price for new cabinets. I'm still not sure what Homesite (the homeowners company) will be giving us to replace the cabinets. The Home Depot lady told me that it took about three weeks to order the cabinets. We are going on our camping trip with our group Saturday (if Joe gets the ok from our Dr). We thought we would leave a couple days before our group meets on Monday to enjoy some time away. Then when we get back we will get going with a contractor and order the cabinets.

    It's all in the timing, whether little ones go home or getting a home makeover! Beautiful flowers remain the same though. Thanks for the eye candy QNS! Bleeding hearts on the protected SE corner of the house are about a foot tall; peonies just peaking their ruby leaves through.
    Was discouraged this am as my day didn't start out like I planned--rain was/is in the forecast so wanted to get more garden work done. Instead this morning spent running errands for DH; then watching 2 little ones outside and not getting anything done. Finally was able to get all the work planned and then some. Today's plantings include 18 asparagus seedlings that I planted indoors earlier. And still no rain--for a change of pace I hopped into the Case with the disc behind it and took care of all the dandelions coming up in a 5 A field north of the house. It will be Friday before the sun shines again and more than likely too wet to disc. DH and I have a 8 hour road trip on Friday and believe me no FART in sight! Think we will be taking 2 1/2 yo GS to get him out of M&D's hair while they finish up chores. Going to play in my sewing space tonight. Have a good one.

    Just sprinkles here, no rain. Every time I see that trip to the mail box, I pull a few more weeds, but they are still there, the next time I look at those pictures. Yes, there is a lot of horse mature in that Railroad tie bed; but the neighbor decided he wanted to keep all that HM, so be it. Haven't been outside long enough to pull weeds 'cause of allergies. That is my story and I am sticking to it. Bleeding hearts will continue to grow and bloom to mid summer or a little more...ending up about four or five feet high. Yes, the peonies have buds... usually in bloom for Memorial Day.

    Completely cut out all the Mountain Mist (Six half yards ... Irish Mist pattern) for dh; earthly colored fabrics. Took me most of two days to do that. Bagged and labeled each, from A through F in the instructions and all the background fabric. Did not do the borders yet. Incorporated in some of the "Springtime in the Rockies" fabric sent to me.

    We have a "back up contract."Someone tried ta buy it in April but that fell through. They haven't received their security deposit yet & untill they do it is still "under contract." Our contract will go inta effect as soon as they git their $$ back. (No one else can try ta make a contract ahead o' us either.) I'm gonna post the link anyway.

    Thanks everyone, this one truly was a labour of love and DD loved it, we hung it in the hall this morning.

    QNS what a beautiful garden you have.

    Bev great house, hope everything works out for you.

    JeanieG hope you get to go camping and DH is healing, everything will work out with the renos.

    Honchey safe travels home

    Now I am off to the sewing room to work on some "stuff" for me, and as your weather warms up mine gets cooler, last week I was wearing shorts and t-shirt and this week I have my fluffy slippers on. Drizzly rain and the temp has dropped dramatically. brrrrr

    Beautiful babies, nice to see pictures of them. They have grown so much and doing so well. May they both continue to do so well.

    Mirabelle, cooler weather can be a nice break from too hot. Enjoy your days in the sewing room.

    Honchey, safe journey back to NJ. At least there, you have a car to drive and go solo on your FART or to your sisters place.

    Thanks everyone, for your nice comments on the pictures. Roses are on the fence, lilacs couple of feet back from them. In all, I think some eight to ten lilac bushes are growing. Dh is still trying to get all the daffodils in a row and the lilies as well. Herb garden winter killed in spots, will have to get more this spring. Rhubarb is ready to use.

    With luck we may finish the place mats and runner today; and on to sew on quilts. Everyone have a great day.

    Thanks for the flowers, QNS. My lilac is blooming and makes the entire garden area smell. Since my garden is new, I don't have a lot of other perennials in bloom just yet except for my clematis. It's just loaded with buds.
    OK....when you are out on the tractor, no one bothers you do they? I always enjoyed that.
    Anael....Isa looks like she is developing as far as personality too. I bet she will be the ring leader of the two and keep everyone hopping.
    Honchey....safe travels.
    Dubib....keeping my fingers crossed for you.
    I'm not using PC blocks after all for the baby quilt. Sunbonnet Sam is just to cute to be in second place. I have to cut out the hearts yet and sew them on. It's going fast at this point. Quilting it will slow me down. Have a good day everyone.

    How I envy you, QNS--those flowers are so pretty. My house is where plants come to die. Only thing I can grow are Day Lillies because they're behind a fence and I can't "harm" them.
    Bev, good luck on getting the house altho I don't envy you having to move. Seems like a daunting task altho that may be the only way I can get my house cleaned.
    Anael, those pictures just make my heart smile. Miracles!!
    Jeanie, hope your DH can make the camping trip. With all that you've been thru and all the work on the horizon, take a break while you can.
    OK, what fun to ride a tractor (altho for you it's work). I miss having a garden. Back in my "Earth Mother" days, I had a small garden and did lots of canning. Loved making all those goodies to have over the winter months.
    Mirab, what can I say about your quilting that hasn't been said? It is awesome. Am I right thinking this is not done on a longarm? Wow. I'm still trying to not be jerky when I go around corners. Do you draw your designs first?
    Ggal, can't wait to see the Sunbonnet Sam quilt; they are so cute.
    Anne, drive safely. We need you to keep us in line and get the next quilt-along organized!
    Picked up my new car yesterday. It's a Chevy Equinox in a pearl white finish. What are all those buttons & gadgets & screens????? I just want to get from one place to another--I don't need all those electronics LOL. Can't buy a new car without them tho--I tried. Haven't been in the Bat Cave for over a week. Hopefully today I'll get some fabric therapy. Have a happy day everyone.

    Hello all

    Anael--Some more cute pics of the twins...thanks for sharing the newborn/current pictures of Bram...what a change!

    QNS--Hope you are feeling better today. Those are some very pretty flowers. I have some lilacs getting close to blooming and also the crab-apple tree. I will share pictures when it is in full bloom...such pretty pink flowers (and I am not a "pink person".

    Jeanie--Did DH get the ok to go camping? Sounds like you might need a little trip before all the work really gets started.

    OK and Ggal--You both sure have been productive outside! Some days I wish I enjoyed gardening more...I do very little. Flowers just to make the front of the house look nice and making sure the trimming gets done around the trees (close to the house), steps and house. Once it dries out we will mow for the first time...need to go into MIL's and do her lawn this weekend too.

    Dublb--Very exciting news about the house. Looks like a nice one. Hope things go faster for you than they did for us with our current house! We put our offer on this house the beginning of July (accepted verbally, it was for sale by owner and the guy kept going back and for on if he wanted to sell...it was going back to the bank if he didn't.) Long story short, we finally signed a purchase agreement in October and moved in in November...one good thing is we ended up getting it for $15,000 less than we had offered in July!

    Honchey--Safe travels to you today (and tomorrow?) not sure if you make the trip in one day or not.

    Mirabelle--how is that "stuff for you" coming along? I know sometimes I get that way too after doing things for other people.

    Ggal--looking forward to seeing your baby quilt.

    Jan--I feel like you do about "plants coming to die"...we have tried having plants inside but can rarely keep them a live for long. Right now we have a "spider plant". It was on the verge of dying until last summer when we let it "live" on the deck. When we brought it inside again in the fall we got 3 new shoots and have managed to keep it "happy". Have fun learning your new car!!

    Janie--Did you get any sewing done yesterday after the twins went to school?

    I hung the humming bird feeder this morning (yes I know a little late!) but just looked out and there is a hummer already enjoying the sugar water! DD (11yrs) and I baked chocolate chip cookies...with a few peanut butter chips thrown in. She likes to take them to the neighbors and sell them. Our neighbors don't take the time to bake so love having them brought to their door. She does most of the work, I just supervise to make sure she adds fractions right when doubling the recipe.

    I got fabric for my June MB and also the last fabric needed for _______'s MB. Off to the clubhouse to work on these two blocks. Then back to the airplane quilt.

    Hi All,

    Lovely flowers, QNS, just lovely.
    Anael those babies are such a miracle. How they have grown and starting to show their personalities already. it has been wonderful watching them grow.

    Bev, Great news about your house. It looks very nice. Trying to be patient is not easy. We went through it from the sellers point of view when we wanted to move out here closer to the kids and grandkids. Keeping my fingers crossed that it sorts itself out soon.

    Jeanie, I have great empathy for all that you are dealing with trying to get your reno organized and having a sick husband on top of that. I am hoping you get away on your trip. A little R and R can go a long way.

    GGal, I hope you will post a picture of your Sunbonnet Sam when you get a chance.
    JanRN congrats on the new car. That's always fun.

    Carrie, I think that is so cool that your daughter is into baking. It's a fun thing for your two to do together even if she is mostly all the labour. I didn't get any sewing done after we took the twins to school. I am getting to the time of year when my sewing production slows down as I am outside a lot. The twins' older brother who will be 9 in August had a half day today so we picked him up at noon and kept him for the rest of the PM. Between the 3 of them I now have half the sandbox in the house, but I don't care. We had fun.

    I acquired some InvisaFil 100 wt thread today and am itching to try it. I'm too tired to do anything productive tonight so will hope for a bit of sewing time tomorrow.
