    QE--how's your binding coming along?

    mercysland--good to see you again. Hope you are feeling well and able to get a little sewing done.

    QNS--looks like a lot of fun stuff you got during your shop hop.

    Anael--so happy to hear about Isa

    OK--re: Iowa fabric...we are sold out where I work and also at the shop a few blocks away. I know the owner at the Amanas shop (Heritage) bought several bolts since she is in a touristy area. Hopefully you can get some close to home.

    Janie--those are some nice flower pictures and GSs too!

    Jeanie--have fun on your camping trip even if your house isn't moving along the way you want.

    I decided to finish a UFO I'd started a while back before quilting the airplane quilt...I got an idea for the border and then didn't want to wait to do it. I kept putting it off because I am doing a different method of QAYG and don't like it as much as the one I usually do. Anyways was coming along nicely until a little before 5 when I bumped my arm with the bottom part of my iron...at least it was my small iron.

    After an hour of the swelling and redness and burning not going down DD drove me to the ER. The doctor said to expect the burn to blister. He gave me a medicated salve to put on it and told me to keep it clean and wrapped. The actual burn area is about 3" long and 1"wide. It is on the inside of my forearm so a tender spot and unfortunately one easily rubbed when moving around. It doesn't hurt right now...

    Oh, Carrie, I am so sorry you burned yourself on your iron. Hope it feels better in the morning. We always used Watkins products and they have a Petro-Carbo first aid salve that I was raised with for burns....I burned myself on the oven shelf while baking cookies and applied it quickly. No blisters. I have always heard to leave burns open to the air...but thinking does change...DGM always applied it quickly and it never left any scars. DS always wants me to send him more and I laugh 'cause he is always on internet where he can find it! It heals from the inside out on cuts, too. An old farm trick, to use that salve on Cow's utters and cuts. ( Love their vanilla flavoring, too, in dark or light in cookies!)

    Something broke into the open-door A frame last night and killed two of the juvenile roosters, and spooked the others tonight, they flew up in a tree to roost. Found all but one, and put them into the hen house to be safe. Lord, please guard the little one we could not find.

    dublb I have been wondering if you had received your mystery block, I mailed it on the 18th of April. I hope it wasn't lost in any of the storms. I mailed to the address that Carrie suggested adding the last of the zip-code.

    No Granny Q, I haven't. I was sure it would be here by the time I got back. Did ya have a trackin' #? I was quit surprised that it wasn't here. I was gone 12 days. DH was here & did git all the mail for me.

    QNS--I will check into getting some of that Petro-Salve. I think the "cover" direction is to help prevent infection, especially if blisters pop. I am to wrap "lightly" with gauze so air could still get to it. Hope your roosters all made it through the night.

    Bev--yeah I have other scars, but none this big....one is on the same arm and got more red last night when the other was flaring up...today it is hardly noticeable...strange.

    I really didn't want to go to the ER last night because I didn't think it was "that bad" but since it just kept getting more red around the area and had the burning feeling we decided it would be best to have it checked out. This morning it looks much better, the reddness surrounding is gone and so far no sign of blisters...I am thanking God for that! Just a little tender to the touch. I will keep it covered a couple days w/salve, but if no blisters probably won't continue to cover.

    Janie...thanks for the beautiful pictures. Your DGSs look like they like to clown around for you. It's nice that you can be a regular part if their lives.
    Jeanie...I'm rooting for you too. It wouldn't be so frustrating if you could only see some progress.
    QNS....sorry about the "raider". Hope the rest grow to a proper skillet size.
    Carrie....the laugh is on me. I have my threads set up so that the latest postings are page one so going back to my PC would be different than if the first page was the first page if the thread. Thanks for helping me out.
    i too think it would be fun to do a mystery block for merciland. We would need to ask the same questions that Honchey asked us and set a date.
    Dubib....you need to complain to your local post office. Lost mail doesn't happen by accident when it happens so often!
    i'm making Italian Beef in the crockpot for a carry in tomorrow and didn't notice thwt I shouldn't use the juice from the giardiniera and it is SPICY. I'm going to remove some of the juice and add plain water and cook it some more today. It sure makes the house smell good. I took a lap quilt and put it on consignment yesterday. There is a big area flea market this weekend. They are charging $15 for tickets tonight to preview so I'm hoping it draws those with idle cash and a desire to part with it. Three projects going in the sewing room. Hummmmm....which one gets the most attention today?

    GardenGAl, vinegar will take the 'spicy' taste down a bit and will not taste in the dish.

    Good news, the 'chicken' left in the tree flew down with the flock this morning! Thank God!! As we catch the seven tonight, we will trim feathers on one wing, so they cannot fly up on the fence and into the orchard trees. All the others 'shook' down, but the one was higher or held on tighter....will add them back into the hen house tonight.

    Hope everyone has a good day. GardenGal, I hope your quilt sells well...above what you expect...some people actually have learned to value quilts!!

    Mercysland is a hand quilter; sorry I really don't hand quilt 'cause of my hands not working as they should in my 'senior years'...although I do have some good days...it might be fun.

    GrannyQ--also be sure your return address is on the envelope...at least then you should get it back if they can't find Bev's house.

    I found it!!!! I host a B-day FQ swap, on the other forum that I'm a member of. As those FQ packages came in DH put 'em in a box (one that I told him ta). They were all standin' up. Well your MB was layin' down under all o' the rest, so that as I flipped through 'em I couldn't see it. What a relief! I was gittin' so very upset. Now I only have ta wait on one more FQ for the swap. I'm glad that I triple checked taday.

    That didn't help with my first block, Carrie. And I tape my return address labels down on bigger envelopes as I don't totally trust the self stick labels.
    Yeah for mail and rain, Bev! Like Jan I'm a weather junkie and have watched the area around Midland for rain--was tickled when I saw a possibility of rain in yesterday's forecast.

    GardenGal, you ask me how long we have been doing our landscaping, and I forgot to answer your question. Sorry. We built and moved in August 2005 after retiring in May 2005. Started the build in March of that year, wanting it be ready for us in the first of June, but the builder did not start when we thought he would...so it drug on for nine weeks before we could move in. First thing I did was to plant an orchard and start my flower beds. The perennial bed was started about three or four years ago; the clematis on the East side about six/seven years ago held up by landscape timber and wire panel. DH built the support for the Wisteria about that time, too, bull strong, to hold up the weight of the plants. The jelly I make every year comes from our orchard. Dh got the tires free and began building up the garden every since then, with some changes every year. I have been planting along the YY state highway since we moved in, and the lilacs are now well established and roses too..as well as along the house. Most of our roses came from www.heirloomroses.com 'cause the University of Iowa professor developed a hardy rose and they marketed them. He would throw them into Iowa corn fields to winter, and what survived, he would develop them future. Dh has from our front door to the East end of the house, and I have from the door to the West end where the garage is attached to the house.

    Today, the rest of the old house, brick piers, are getting buried...it has bugged my dh all this time. They did bury most of the old house that was here, and cleared the land of twenty five years of growth. We did want to save some of it, but too much poison oak, so we just started fresh with about eight to ten trees on the lot..2.9 acre lot.

    I'm with you on the hand quilting QNS! The arthritis really flares when I do any hand sewing. It's the pits getting older!

    I bet Merciland wouldn't turn down blocks for a special thanks from this group even if we did them by machine!
    Thanks for the history, QNS.....I love how plants make a place look loved and you certainly have done that!
    Easy Street is FINISHED!!!! Lighting is poor today so no picture. Utopia is FINISHED!!! I erased them from my white board but added the WW and baby quilt so the list isn't any shorter. I just signed up for the mystery quilt from Fabric Essentials. It looked just too interesting to turn down. They send fabric and clues every month for four months and it makes a lap quilt. I've decided not to do the next MM BOM at the LQS and try my wings at some new things.

    Good for you GG, go for new things!! That keeps you young at heart!!

    Bf's daughter had her baby girl at 1:30 pm and all is doing fine. She may be dismissed tomorrow or next day, so bf will remain up there until Wednesday, I think. Then, we can plan the rest of the Iowa Shop Hop.

    DH is very happy to get rid of the dump, and have it buried. We gathered eggs; having put eggs from the guineas nest over into the nests in the hen house, dh thought he was encouraging the hens to lay...but with five or six hens trying to 'sit' (no rooster), a small newly hatched guinea baby greeted me after throwing each hen out the door...so what to do....I slipped the little one under a black hen that was clucking on her nest. Whatever happens, happens. If the hen takes the young guineas out into the dew it kills them, so will try to watch that. Have to catch the juveniles and trim their wings tonight before dark, and put them into the hen house again. More may hatch out tonight.

    So tomorrow, we set up the nursery for baby guineas and hen Mothers.

    Hi Gardnergal970! I just wanted you to know that I am actually branching out and piecing with a sewing machine sometimes. (Imagine that--I'm so proud!) LOL I made a wall quilt earlier this week, and it didn't come out too badly. (I need lots more matching corner practice, though.) I still will sew samplers by hand, but for wall and baby quilts, I think I'll go wild and try to get over my machine phobia. Let's face it. All quilting is fun no matter how we do it.

    Update .... and again ... I haven't done any reading.

    Pulled a semi-all-nighter ...... and put the last stitch in the binding at 12:12 am.
    Wasn't able to give it my normal check ... of laying it on the floor to see if it had survived wave-free thru the process.
    Barely picked off the threads that hop on board.
    Then still had to pack all the entries for travelling.

    Bed ... 2:07am ..... up and out the door less than six hrs later.

    Busy day .............. and went back to the Fair tonight.
    It was worth staying up late .....................

    Gosh I wish they would hang quilts right way up when they are directional ..... surely they could see the dog.

    I'll fill you all in about the rest of my entries later .............. and no, I do not have any other pics of the quilt yet.

    And it looks like I'll need a pot of tea ..... one hundred posts to read ... tomorrow?
