    My MBs to ........... will wait until next week when I mail dgs quilt to him for his fifth birthday and Passion Pansy II to Corpus Christi, Tx (If I can get it bouind). Got the binding on Micheal's almost all done today. Have an image of a king sized bed frame mounted outside to take out my quilts to natural light for better pictures...still thinking about it.

    Nice picture, Honchey of you and your sister; of course, we all know who the better looking sister is....right PCers??

    Off to town tomorrow to do errands, pick up sweet potatoes plants and deliver eggs so I have more room in my refrigerator. Rain predicted for tomorrow; none today. Lightning in South skies tonight.

    Honchey--sounds like you had a nice time with your sister. Then to be able to come home and have dinner with the "boys"...good end to the trip. Always good to have a face to go with a name. I have my June MB name (and the block is done).

    QNS--have fun finishing up those projects for family. Hope you can get all your errands done and back home to get some sewing time in.

    Anael ... oh what a way for them to say, we don't want you in the family. OUCH! Hope you still eat beef, despite that experience ... and use lots of milk, butter, cheese!

    JanieW ... good memories with your lambs! And soon you'll be cuddling with them, with that new quilt. How about some minky used for their fleece? I'll gladly receive those achimenes, though I forwarn you ... so long as you accept that there may be fatalities.

    DublB
    ... Time and Patience!

    DDamsel ... hey ... come on back and sit a spell!! And I want to see those pink/orange ducks!

    Anael ... DDamsel could make the two quilts and zipper them together for MrDDamsel's king size!

    QNSue ... such fun to see the quackers enjoying their beach! You are amazing ... never slow down! Be sure to send us photos once the CC and DGS quilts are finished, before you send them off. With your overload of eggs, do you have a local restaurant you could sell them to?

    JanieW and QNSue ... so neither of you know about that order being shipped?

    MiraB ... maybe you'll have a surprise coming to you too?

    CarrieM ... It's nice that MrCarrieM helps with the quilting decisions. Though maybe not so, if he does not agree with what you want to do! Good idea on the compass inclusion. Perhaps the windsocks could be quilted in? And which of the layouts are you going to use?

    Honchey ... back already? That was one whirlwind trip! And so nice to "meet" you! I sent my May MB this week to ____________!!!!! And yes, I do have my June MB Pardner!! Thank you!

    Hi everybody!

    Good to "see" you Anne. It sounds like you had a great time. I got your e-mail about the June MB.

    QNSue, your ducks are adorable. I was surprised to see how big they were.

    Carrie, Your airplane quilt is really, really, a terrific quilt. I love the colours and the arrangement.

    DD, Pink ducks? That sounds so magical. Pictures? Are you making the Irish/Tahiti mist quilt, too? The more the merrier. Congrats on your May block, now get cracking on June!

    QuiltE, I will not hold you accountable if you have a casualty or two, but you likely won't. Re my Tahiti Mist kit, I have no idea why it took them so long to process the order, but it says it's on its way. The tracking # tells me it is in Aurora, CO which is only about 2000 kms away so it should get here in the next two weeks depending on how long customs holds it hostage. I had done my usual... see it, love it, knee jerk order it and then wonder what the shipping would be as they only estimated it. it was when I was trying to ask about the actual shipping cost that I lost communications. Then Sue contacted them and got shipping and it seemed really high compared to other US orders so I thought I'd pass and make it with my own fabrics. I forgot about it and then got a shipping notification yesterday. So now I am chuffed big time that I will be getting the Springtime in the Rockies batiks and making the same quilt as Sue. It's all good.

    The twins are coming today. They are really fascinated with my faerie garden. This morning I went and moved the teeny hoe and shovel to make it look like they have visited and sprinkled a bit of red faerie dust out there. Can't wait to see their reaction.

    Better go. Hope y'all have a great day.

    DDamsel ... nope and I think I will hold out til I see your pink duckies!

    JanieW ... let's hope that the shipping rates aren't oo much a surprise. I really want to do Tahiti or Irish or perhaps it'll be Autumnal Mist ... though I am NOT starting another project til some more get done!! (See how long I hold out on that!!) ......... and it looks like you need to be the shutterbug too ... photos of the Faerie Garden, please? And do the faeries do different things each time the Twins come? That'll be fun!!!


    Have a great sun-shiney day, everyone ... it's a warmin' up big time here!!!
    And looks like I'll have to muck around in the flower beds this weekend. too.

    Toodles for now Kids! ........

    Janie, I received your great block yesterday. Thank you very much. This is the first time I have worked with black, white, & red fabric. I really love it. I haven't been on much lately because DH has been having health issues. So for now it will only when I can. I also have _________ MB done for June.

    GrannyQ and JanieW ... What a perfect block to go with the previous two. I really like it's simplicity and yet it makes a great statement on its own. And look at how square everything is!!

    GrannyQ ... so sorry to read of MrGrannyQ's health concerns. My thoughts and best wishes are with the two of you.

    Oh I like it Granny Q--great job Janie.

    Just checking in--had to go to computer for a reference lookup--so I'm off again. Tomatoes and beans here I come! Now if I can just keep the dogs out of my beds--I have used all sorts of deterents--even boards with nails-. Leaving garden tools with pointing ends up is about the best one yet.

    What a lovely block! Of course I've seen it before Great job GrannyQ!

    QuiltE, I still eat beef and cheese. I don't like milk though, I do drink buttermilk in summer when it's hot.

    Latest update on Bram and Isa: Isa is ready to go home but still waiting on Bram who's not. His lungs are seriously damaged and he can't do without oxygen yet. So he will go home with oxygen. He's on 70% per 0.3 liter oxygen now and has to back to 100% oxygen per 1 liter as that's the only way they can give oxygen at home. He has to be admitted to hospital every few weeks and see if he can do without, you can't do that at home. They won't go home next week, but they might go home on May 29th

    She sure did, Anael!

    Here is my fairy garden. it is early yet so not in its prime. Ignore the dead Kenilworth Ivy to the right of the wishing well. I leave it there so that it will self seed. I have had Kenilworth Ivy progeny since 1983. I got the original plant from the custodian at the school where I worked. He and I were friends and I have had a plant from seed every year since. The door to the log needs a paint job, maybe the faeries can do it!

    How nice, Janie, to have a fairy garden and two handsome young gentlemen in the garden!!

    I leave for errands today and delivery of 16 dozen eggs, and this place gets very chatting. Beautiful MBs; love them! Karen did a great job on yours Janie; like Honchey said, it looks like it should have a star in its name. And Janie, you sent a great one to GrannyQ!!!

    Feed store buys eggs when I go to buy feed; my LQS in Kirksville also buys eggs when I go that way...some fabric just followed me home, too. Everyone felt like talking today, so the errands took forever. Local Ben Franklin store is closing; I have been going there for better than 57 years!!...while I was in HS...missed it while we lived elsewhere..and now the grandson's love of his life does not like small town USA life, so they are selling the building. Some of their fabric followed me home as well ....20% and 40% off, my will power weakened. And I can see the shelf in my refrigerator now!! Just 3 dozen duck eggs left.

    It must be nice, Honchey, to have a sister that still through the years remain a wonderful sister to run around with and have fun being together. Too many of us do not have that; thought SILs would be but I was so wrong from day one. Bf makes up for it a bit. I think you might be the better looking one of the two of you, but its wonderful you have each other...just priceless!!

    DD, a picture of the ducks, please. Does not sound familiar. Will do some gardening outside tomorrow morning with dh. Bf will come down tomorrow afternoon, and we travel to Des Moines Quilt Block on Saturday, rising at 6am. Looking forward to the trip.

    OKSGlad ... are any of these dogs, those adorable puppies? They lose some of that adorability, don't they, when they get up to their mischief! AS a good farmer, electric fence would be the solution!!

    Anael ... of course, the cheese is in your native blood!! Closer and Closer for the SewGrands homecoming!!!!

    JanieW and MiraB ... oh how lovely!!! A perfect garden block for JanieWs garden!! As alwaysk, precision piecing and points by our MiraB.

    JanieW ... Your Fairy Garden is such a special part of your garden. The imagination and anticipation for your Grands as to what they might will hold memories for all of you, for years to come! Look at those boys investigating and checking every detail. Do you have surprises in the Fairy Garden periodically throughout the season for them to find?

    QNSue ... your egg delivery to the LQS made me think of Eleanor Burns' book, Egg Money Quilts! Is Saturday your lesson on your new machine ........ of course, along with getting your new embroidery machine!

    This is the first long weekend of the summer with Monday as a Stat Holiday. I usually plan the longs as sewing times, but this time I am relinquishing and my priority will be the outside flower beds, etc. UGH! I enjoy the results, just not so much the process! So I'll start tomorrow/Friday with a visit the chiropractor to get tuned up, and try to make it a little less agonizing. Then on my way home, look for some flowers, plants, perennials or whatever happens to jump into my car along the way!

    However, I will fess up ... I am secretly hoping to stop early enough in the day and allow myself some sewing time to recover for the next day's work! And hoping to make it a little less of a marathon than I seem to make it!

    And the show begins!!! What beautiful blocks. Honchey, like you, I've been studying GrannyQ's block to see it I could make it too. Really striking
    Janie...luckily you. Great block and such eager Fairie hunters. Thanks for the pictures...
    Jeanie...such a cute little one. Is your DH feeling better and is the renovation progressing?
    QNS....what a whirlwind of accomplishments you are! Quilts, ducks, food, gardening, errands, etc.....
    OK....dogs and cats seem to love the soft dirt of any kind of garden. Does it help that you have raised beds? Have you considered fencing? I had to last year because the deer were bedding down in my garden. I've taken most of it down this year because my raspberries and roses are taller this year and I haven't seen any sign of deer at all...just foxes. There is a den if babies across the block from us and I can hear them at night sometimes.
    Anael...Bram's health could be challenging for your DS and DDIL but I'm sure they will be glad to have their babies home. May 29 will soon be here.How far from you are they?
    Yesterday I got more pavers for edging, mulch, and plants so I can finish this year's project. Today I got started on a MB....finally found the right pattern....and it took much longer than I anticipated...had to go to a second try as the first one went together wrong and didn't reveal the mistake until it was too late to even rip it out. It makes a great orphan block for a future time.
    Dubib...did any of the bad weather affect you at all? The headlines are all about towns east of Midland.

    Wow just read all the posts I have missed since yesterday..

    Beautiful blocks Grannyq loving the black white and red.

    JanieW I'm pleased you liked the block, I always worry that I have chosen the wrong block or used the wrong fabrics, but that is just me..

    Lovely photo of you and your sister Honchey, so nice to "see" you.

    I have a busy day of errands and it is only 11.00 in the morning, have already done the grocery shopping, had to stop at the stationery store and pick up some printer ink, then to the vets for heart pills for my little boy. Printing off some documents while I get this typed then I am off to the Post Office. QuiltE your signature block is winging its way to you, hope you like it. Lunch with DS then he is having his car serviced so I will drive him home and wait for his phone call to go pick him up so he can collect his car.

    I really really want to just hide out in my sewing room, like you QuiltE I want to get some projects finished up before starting anything new. BUT this morning I had a postie delivery of a new patchwork book and oh there is some lovely quilts in it. It is called Big Book of Scrap Quilts, note to self, hide book for at least 6 months. NinaSue our weather is really stupid at the moment, I haven't had blue skies for 2 weeks, just grey so waiting for a nice day to take pic of the house. If I have forgotten anyone I apologize but I had better get my butt off this computer and get moving, cause the little café we go to is really popular and if you are late you won't get a table..

    Wow! You all *were* very chatty today!

    Janie--great job on GQ's MB. That is an interesting block. I am sure your GSs have fun visiting the garden each time they come over.

    GQ--hope your DH gets to feeling better soon.

    OK--how did the gardening go today? Looks like rain tonight.

    QNS--busy day for you as usual.

    Ggal--have you gotten any pictures of the fox? We have some that live around here. Don't have anything for them to get into so they don't come too close.

    Karen--your block for Janie is great too. So much fun to see how they go together.

    Anael--praying that Bram's oxygen can be regulated so he can go home soon.

    QE--I am happy to have DH's help for this quilt since it is for a friend of his. He decided on the layout with the 4-Ps all around the compass. I will have it all on the display wall tomorrow including the outer border so will take a picture then.

    DD--I too would be interested in seeing pictures.

    Bev--have you gone to look at any more houses this week? You *will* find the right one!!!

    If I missed someone...sorry!!

    We were extra busy at the shop today...anniversary sale, 21 years! I did get the border fabric needed for the airplane quilt and also the fabric for the wedding quilt gift...it is batiks. Plan tomorrow is to get the right layout for the planes on the display wall and then start cutting the fabric I bought today for the gift.

    DH is taking off at noon tomorrow. We have an appt at the bank, then going to lunch and a movie.
