    Went into catch up mode yesterday ... and now today it's back to the regular rat-race.
    Quilts are all de-ribboned and de-tagged and back into their regular homes.
    PC is laying on my living room floor ... will do the blocking for the binding that there was not time for. Also, need to do a good thread picking, as despite thinking they are off, there's still some there.

    Starting to gear up now for WORK activities, so may be more intermittent from here on.

    Meanwhile, have just read what has happened here since I was here on Sunday.
    And am now going to go back and do the back-reading from last week!

    Thanks Everyone for all your kind words about the show ... I have some more pics that I'll try to get up later today. And yes, Granny_59's Mini Dresden went again to wow everyone!


    *sigh* what a little bit of paradise we've all seen at The QNSue Estate!
    Thanks for sharing it with us QNSue!
    Now ....do as the Dr. says and take those meds ... and slooooow down! I think that's telling you that you need more quilting time!
    JanRN ... Oh please save a seat for me on that FART tour! Reading GGal's query as to whether you are relaxing while sewing, made me wonder, about your chair? I find I need to sit a little higher for FMQing than when doing regular sewing. It gives me a better view of what I am doing, and lets my shoulders/back relax down, instead of hunching up. I have an adjustable drafting chair ... the lowest position is the highest of a typewriter chair. Just a thought!

    MiraB ... it's so nice to know how much you love your daughter. You must be so proud of her doing for being such a Big Loser!!! How wonderful that the gym challenge ended with a fancy dress up occasion ... would make all of them seem like winners! Especially your DD ... she needs times like that to help encourage her towards more success. Please tell her, that I am rooting for her to continue on and down! Your Mountains are beautiful and I love the brown/blue/cream combo. Spectacular, indeed! Thanks for the reminder on the JuneMB ... I have mine here on my desk and must get it packaged up and to the PO.

    OKSGlad ... oh so sorry, I thought your trip had been publicly announced here on the QB. I'm totally envious of you to be going ... though you know I would have chosen Jersey Isle!! Great that you are still here for the County Fair and then have DS and GF coming to home sit and provide the missing farm labour! Who knows? maybe DSGF will decide she's ready to become a Farmer! And looks like the OKHotel is open for business again ... yea for your DS/BIL arriving

    Anael ... of course, you could always zip on over to Guernsey and find OKSGlad! Looks like you have that new camera figured out already! Your border fabrics are perfect ... from your stash? or did you have to return to the LQS? along with shots of your own sanctuary!!

    QNSue ... patience, and you too will soon be quilting like Anael!

    JeanieG ... I think you are away right now? Hope it's the break your body needs to get back in order, and then back to the zoo of dealing with the insurance people!

    GGal ... I think you are behind on showing us pics ... or is that in the section I have not read?

    DublB ... glad all your blocks have found their way to you .... pics please?

    QNS,

    the flowers are Campanula.

    QuiltE, yes fabric from my stash. I'm still not that good at FMQ! With the BSR foot it's hard to see where I have to go, specially with echoing. But one day I'll get there

    I have to do some tidying up here as I'll have a friend over for a cup of coffee tonight.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Catch up reading #4270 ------->

    OKSGlad and JeanieG ... what a nice quilt block! What is the pattern name?

    GGal ... I think you're going to get JanRN's box that shall never be opened .... OPENED!!! I bet they will make for some lovely samplers of random sized blocks!

    Cinderella ... How nice that you were off to the Ball with your DD!

    JanRN ... if you're going to get lost, anytime, at least head this direction instead of to Montreal! Does this mean that your car is all fixed up and back together again? What a successful FART!! We should see pics to know for sure!!! Is this place close enough that you can easily go to it? or is it a major excursion? Regardless, looks like it's more than worth the trip!

    Honchey ... take all the time you need! I totally understand your need to lay low for awhile. When things overwhelm me, the first thing I know I "need" is to catch up on my sleep .. not always possible but definitely I function better when I get rested, even if it means delaying dealing with things til I am rested. Take care!!

    CarrieM ... that's exciting that you are even thinking of a LA! Keep your eyes open and learn all you can, so that when you get an opportunity again, you are informed. And ... keep an eye on JanRNs S16's as a possibility too. (yes, I am still lusting over it!)

    For any who missed the Quilt Canada link from QNSue ... here it is .....
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/luanaru...7633865983372/
    Amazing work!!! .... far better quality than I saw in the pics from QC2012.
    Some are absolutely beyond amazing!!




    And Now .... I think I am all caught up ... at least for a few minutes!!!

    Great stash shopping ... you couldn't have done better at the LQS.
    I forget ... is this one for you?
    That's where JanRN has it aced ... high clearance and SO much visibility!

    Have a good time with your friend tonight!

    Thanks, QuiltE, for the peak at more Quilt Canada. Amazing that its pieced together, one stitch at a time. And the the Canada Dry add, one little pigtailed girl pulls up the whole multi-ton truck from the 'roots' to serve more to visiting tourists...makes me laugh every time I see it. Those young Canada misses (Or of any age) are not to be messed with!

    Thanks for the flower name, Anael. They made me smile.

    The three little quineas are accepting TLC. Not so with the hen guinea who 'nested' under the bushes and went wild in the small cage with her nest. Too many hungry wild things here to leave her out in the 'open', but she did not accept the cage idea, so we sat her free and put the eggs under the brooding chickens again...then the eggs have a 50/50 chance.

    We seen the sun briefly yesterday; its clouded up like a storm again today. Forecasted to be hot one tomorrow.

    Thanks for another Virtual Garden tour--QNS & Anael those flowers are beautiful. I don't have to plant a thing--I'll just enjoy yours. QNS, take care of yourself and quit chasing those guinea hens. I remember my sister's guineas were really mean when you got near.

    Jeanie, glad you're feeling better.

    OK, or should I say Ilene Wright, enjoy your travels. Hopefully you & MrOK will have some time together when not at meetings.

    QE, when can we see a pic of your whole PC???? Please, pretty please!

    Anael, love what you did with the Attic Windows--great color combo, bright & cheery.

    Carrie, since you are the Designated Driver does that mean you'll only get 2 quilts done this week instead of 4? I'm so jealous of your productivity and also your talent. Enjoy time with DD tho--they grow up too fast.

    Mirab, speaking of DD, you must be so proud of her. Losing any amount of weight is tough but she's done fantastic. She is so beautiful.

    Ggal, of course I'll send you blocks as long as you don't say "What was she thinking when she made this one?" LOL. And no, I don't want you to send postage. Think how much money you're saving me--I won't have to buy The Shed. I have a busy week & week-end coming up so I'll probably get to the Post Office Tuesday. Just don't laugh at my poor orphan blocks.

    Have a great week everyone. We're supposed to have really severe weather tomorrow with 100 mph winds, hail, rain and all that. Hope it's gone by Thursday--another FART (I'm so spoiled LOL).

    Anael--pretty bird quilt and flowers too.

    Ggal--good thought on the GFG...not quite ready to start one of those. I did have little bit of time today as I dropped DD off at 8, then she went to a friend's after class until she had to drive at 12. I met them in the town near where her appt was...it was nice. I got my quilt to the point of needing to pin on borders so took that along to the ortho appt today.

    Jan--LOL Yep just 2 quilts this week... I find I can be more productive when I have to squeeze in time. Funny you called me the driver...I am making her drive everywhere so she has as much experience as she can. She does a good job.

    Praying for those who aren't feeling quite right that you get to feeling much better soon! Hugs!!

    JanRN ... I'm hoping that I can get a pic this week, with it hanging off my deck ... though I won't do it til I have someone to help me as I want extra hands, so we do not drop it down into the dirt!







    GGal ... how much of a bribe will it take to get you to show us the delights!

    Bev--looks like a great place. Not a lot that needs to be done. Love the skylight in the kitchen! (I don't have near enough lighting in mine.)

    Remember, Barb, its LOCATION, LOCATION, Location. And how it feels to you. Don't settle for less than what you all want. You can make it your own inside, but you cannot move the structure somewhere else.

    Feeling tired this morning; not going on FART trip today. It will wait. Taking the meds and resting is more important right now. You all have a good, good day. Celebrate the day.

    No, QuiltE, its the lack of air making me short of breath. Went to town for medicine and been trying to 'rest' ever since. Dh thought I was resting by demanding I work with him cleaning out the deep freezers, getting lunch on the table, finishing the deep freezers and now by doing dishes. And we still have rhubarb to pull. I did get in my quilt room for a bit and worked in the quiet there. Mailed the MB to -------------? and started working on the next one. Life is what it is, not what we want it to be ....

    Everyone must be having a productive day...no chatting here.

    It has been a busy week with a lot of running. I will be happy when I get home at 10am on Friday as I get to stay home the rest of the day! I did sneak in a little sewing yesterday and also this morning before leaving for work.

    QNS--hope you get to feeling better real soon. You're right it's been pretty quiet here today!

    QNS It's in a very nice part o' 'old' Midland. (But not Historic Midland) It was built in 1956. LOL As I was growin' up I considered that neighborhood as the 'rich' part o' town. Now the 'rich' live in all o' the new developments. This is now a 'mature' neighborhood. The 2 Oak trees & 1 Pecan look ta be as old as the house. It's 2 blocks from the park. 7 min.s from the hospital. 4 min.s from the grocery store. 3 blocks from a major street but feels tucked away. Your right location is very important. Now if I can just git some desert plants ta grow.

    One thing I noted Bev, was the zip code was different than current one. Beautiful house and looks like lots of room for quilting! Best of luck.

    After my sister left this morning (visit was way too short) I did a shopping run to update the wardrobe a bit before the trip. Now I'm tired.... Night all and rest well.
    Don't worry spider.

    QuiltE can't wait to see your PC quilt, come on share...

    GGal I am not sure what my next project is going to be, maybe I will work on Out Of the Darkness for a while. I'll let you know

    Anael you quilting is beautiful and your flowers are my favourite colour, purple

    JanRN does this mean that GGal can show us what is in the box that is never to be opened?????

    Bev I am sure you will make the right decision on a home, unfortunately I couldn't open the link but I like the idea of a skylight..

    QNS please take care of yourself and get well soon

    Note to self.. Add trip to Canada to attend Quilt Canada to bucket list and see some amazing works of art

    Thank you everyone for your kind words about my daughter, we are extremely close and talk every day on the phone and sometimes 3 or 4 times a day. Now I am off to the cave for some serious sewing..

    Your next home to be looks great, Barb; sounds like it just might be the one!! When you tell us about your new quilting room, we know you have decided!!

    Oksoglad, you are up going strong long hours...good that you took a few moments for yourself for a shopping trip for your up coming trip abroad.

    Mirabelle, sounds like you have a 'sunshine' daughter; a delight every moment that brighten up your life. And she sounds like she appreciates her Mother, too. Lovely dd, inside and out. My dh favorite question to high schooler's he taught, 'Is she beautiful inside as well as outside?' got all the boys thinking little harder.

    Kitchen duty calling me. Need to make last year's berries into jam; make the rhubarb into crisp. Another 'hot' day. Young chicks scratched out my flower bed in front of the house that dh let go out of their pen. The nine chicks had plenty of room in their house and run, but dh wanted me to know he did not appreciate me getting more chicks. No plans of replanting flower bed. Need to dress out some old hens when I feel better...maybe some ducks.

    Dubib....what a beautiful house. Are you making an offer on it?
    Carrie....nice you got a few minutes in the sewing room. It will be nice when your DD can drive without a parent. Will she still be restricted to who she can have in the car with her like here in Indiana?
    QNS...it sounds to me like you just keep pushing yourself and not taking seriously the Dr.'s advice to rest. The meds need to be taken with at least one hour of quiet napping/reading activity every day and early to bed. Set the timer so DH knows you're not just slacking but restoring your health and you're not to be bothered.
    OK....how long will you be gone? Is it all business or will there be opportunity for some touristy stuff?
    JanRN...the weather has turned much cooler today. I hope it has settled down enough today that you can enjoy your FART. And no, I won't be showing off the contents of your box...at least in it's original form. And I never laugh at someone else's efforts.
    Anael...I love your Birds in the Window quilt. It's so cherry. I've neglected to mention that I'm sorry for your brother's passing and the entire family situation. Even when estranged, the loss can be felt.
    it was really HOT and HUMID here yesterday! I got the baby quilt blocks all together and off the wall. I need kiddy print for the backing. The dark ones I have just don't seem to fit. My last Jamestown class is Monday so I pulled it out and put some more rows together. I should be able to get all but one row finished by Monday. This is my QAYG project and I've done everything SITD but it looks so plain, I'm toying with a simple quilting design before I put the rows together and have to handle the entire quilt to do it.
    QuiltE...I haven't heard what the bribe is and haven't taken pictures of my latest finishes. I don't have a decent place outside and on the bed, the lighting always messes up the colors.

    We are gonna make a bid on the house when my Real Estate agent gits through w/some other appointments & has it drafted. He will call me.
    Sue- the first thing I look for in a house is where will my sewin' room be.
    After I git all the papers signed I'm goin' ta Odessa (20 min.s away) ta see my friend who is at her DGM's house taday. She lives in Bridgeport (about 5 1/2 hours away.)

    Yes!! Barb, good choices. Like the natural light and the storage area built in. Of course, it may take a couple of FART journeys to 'stock' the new area and a quilting machine as well...one you can sit down and quilt on a large frame.

    Well it did not take a month for bf to call me; she is feeling better, we talked for an hour and half this morning. She loved the news I had three baby guineas. They are sooo small and cute until they grow up and screech; but they eat every bug in sight until there are none. Dh is convinced to fix up a permanent nursery for baby chicks, ducks and/or guineas.
