    Oh thanks for the photos Anael! Isa is getting so chubby! Mick looks like he is anything but ready for bed! So wonderful you get to spend time with those precious grandchildren!

    Oh but it already has ribbons (see the post about the Fair last weekend!) ... and it will be shown again.


    Thanks Everyone for all the kind words! Though remember, there are lots of other PCs on this thread that are just as specially done!!! Not to worry ... I praise my LAQ every chance I get, and let her know that my wins are hers too, as without her great work, no way I'd do so well! More photos will come when I can get better lighting for better pics!


    JanRN ... yes, the Scottie should have been one of our much beloved Dals ... though there is a block with Patches and Zammy playing!

    JeanieG ... I'm with you ... I like to see "quilting" instead of an all over meander. Yes, some quilts it's good for, but after this much work, I feel I "owe" it to myself to pay for the custom work to show it off. Every block is different in some way. The large animal ones, less so though, as most have stipple in the background and then just and outline/SITD around the animal. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa for your new machine!!!

    MiraB ... another trio of impressive quilts!! All the points are so pointy, they almost don't look real ... I know they are!! Looks like Star Struck might need to accompany the Mountains to your DS's home?

    Anael ... it's not too late to do more PC blocks! Such a precious picture of Isa! And Mick, you thought he was ready for bed?

    OKSGlad
    ... see those cow pics??? Brown ones, tooo!!!

    Anael that photo of Isa took my breath away, she is so beautiful. Mick definitely does not look ready for bed

    I always thought I had 34 hours and you said there were 36 hours am I missing some

    This is what is next on the agenda, quilt Not Marjen for Error or as DD calls is Marjen of Error. Have just finished basting it and it is ready for the machine. But as you know I am easily distracted so this week did some machine embroidery and then this morning decided that I might like to do another Bonnie Hunter pattern so picked out some fabric and made a block, it is called Tulip Fields. One block does not make a ufo right right right Ho hum back to quilting...no more playing with fabric today

    The embroideries are called Animal Flowers from Dakota, there is Giraff-odil, Dolphinium, see who can name all of them

    Anael, that is a wonderful camera to take pictures with; yes, the rain drop shows its whole world! And to be able to 'capture' those priceless moments with grandchildren is wonderful!!

    Mirabelle, you are sooooooooo productive!! So glad you are quilting the beautiful rose embroidered quilt. What kind of embroidery machine do you have? I do not remember if you have said or not. Cute animal flowers.

    Yes, QuiltE, I do remember the ribbon the PC quilt won in a fair, but I think that quilt has far to go in winning top honors. And its worthy of every top award it gets.

    My meds are taking their toll, and energy in my bod is all gone to sleep. Could not believe myself yesterday, that I could not cook a meal or bake a pie. That, folks, is a new low for me that has not happened before. I can breathe deeper without pain, so will stumble onward, being good and taking the medicine as the doctor has told me to do!! (for now)

    BIL did get the Bernina embroidery program downloaded....but no guitar outline. I have the drawing he prefers, so will work with the techs at Bernina to import a copy of the that. Besides, I may have other drawings I will want to import as well. Going to satin stitch one on the 550, since it is the outline that he is wanting...and I can do that with the satin stitch.

    Everyone have a great day.

    QNS, yes it is a wonderful camera! I am very happy I bought it!

    I hope you're feeling well soon. It's no fun being that tired. I know the feeling I'm glad you're breathing better now. Keep on being good
    Good luck with your embroidery machine. Did you see the link I posted a while ago? Here it is again: http://www.cuteembroidery.com/designsbycuties
    Maybe you can find a guitar outline there? Lots of pages and all free designs!

    Anael....Isa is so beautiful!....and Mick is all boy. What a nice family. Your world in a raindrop is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
    Mirabelle....you're planning to quilt the Margin of Error at home? The embrodiery is so cute. You got that all done in one day? I like Bonnie Hunter too but am currently working on some larger pieces to use up leftovers. I have two quilts ready to out into rows. One I'm going to specifically practice FMQ and a different method of QAYG on.
    QNS...don't quit the meds just because you're tired. It's good that your breathing doesn't hurt now. Your energy will return with your health improving. You've run circle around most if us this past year and now is your time to unwind.
    Dibib...eagerly waiting to see if the bid in the house goes your way. It was beautiful.
    QuiltE...your LA person is a real artist and knows how to make each block "talk". Of course you've made the block so it has something to say. What are you working on now?
    OK...thinking if you and your world travels! Have fun.
    you embroidery people check out this link. If any of you are interested in the CD, I'll get one for you. http://www.quiltingboard.com/offline...a-t223595.html
    nothing special in the quilt room today. Going to enjoy being with friends this afternoon. Have a good day all!

    QNS I have a Pfaff Creative 4.0 with the Grand Dream Hoop which is great for large designs..

    Anael that photo is awesome, great camera work

    Ggal I did the embroideries over 3 days, most of them have more than 35,000 stitiches so quite a few hours for each design. Today I just made one block and basted Marjen, did manage to get some SID done ready for the fmq. Tomorrow I will try and get some quilting done.

    Three more days before DH gets home. Then life gets a little topsy turvy for me. DS has to have knee surgery on Friday and has to be at the hospital at 7am which means a 5am start as it is an hour and a half drive. We will flip a coin on Wednesday to decide who goes with him DH or me.

    Here's what I'm working on now. I think Carrie will recognize the focus fabric
    It's called By the Light of the Silvery Moon, a pattern from Quilter's World December 2011

    Yes, GG, I would appreciate a CD and would be happy to reimburse you for the CD and postage. I am a primary stage beginner in machine embroidery. Very cautious and slow, reluctant to 'push' the start button...but that may change as I get started on projects...

    Thanks for the site, Anael, I have bookmarked it. I still believe I want to learn how to import my own designs into the program.

    Dh is off getting his own prescription filled....first time in our married life, he has to go get his own. Noticed he took my car and not his truck. Fuel usage is very different in the two...so I can see that. I went back to sleep and let him do his thing in the kitchen, etc. Cats were happy I woke up and feed them; and the three little guineas as well. They thanked me with their 'peep, peep, peep.'

    Anael - is that a wall hanging, or a block for a quilt? It is gorgeous, great fussy cutting center square!

    QNS - glad you are breathing easier! I am still sniffling a little from my bronchitis/sinus infection, but so happy not to have that wheezing. It drove me nuts! Take all those meds so it goes away, and remember I had to take two of those 5 day Z-packs!

    Jeanie, thank you. It's going to be a wall hanging. Just two more rounds and I'm done
    I will make the same one in blue for my DDIL. At least that's the plan!

    Great news, Barb!! Now comes the work of painting, organizing, packing, moving, and unpacking everything. Many hands can make it light work, but Heaven help you find everything that way. Great news!!! When you do move, we need an update to send the MBs to the right address! And oh yes, address will have to change on licenses, etc., that is fun too!! LOL!!

    Anael, great job on the wall hanging.

    Dh made it to town for his medicine, but had not called it in last Thursday; they had to have the doctor ok it, and that will not be until Monday...wasted trip. So be it. He will have to learn to 'plan' his trips better.

    Oh I am so happy for you Dublb! That is so grand! I am so envious of that great kitchen! (As I am sitting here with nothing done on my kitchen for over a month!!!!!)

    Yay (almost) party time for Bev, we will have to have a housewarming party in the RV...

    Anael that is going to be a striking wallhanging, please take a photo of the two together when you get the blue one made. It will be interesting to see the different color schemes

    Hello

    It has bee a few days since I've been on the computer...always fun to catch up with everyone!

    Ggal--when DD is done with driver's ed, she will be able to get a school permit. Right now her restrictions are that she has to drive with a family member over 26 (I think that is the age). She turns 16 in Feb. and at that time can get a license to drive on her own.

    QE--your PC quilt turned out great!

    Bev--great news about the rain AND offer acceptance. Will you put your house on the market right away or wait until you are moved and then do it?

    QNS--so sorry you are feeling so worn out. Praying for good rest and quick recovery.

    Jeanie--YAY for a new (to you) sewing machine. Bummer about no progress on the kitchen.

    Karen--those are some great quilts for the week. I can't decide on a favorite.

    Anael--another pretty picture of Isa and Mick looks happy.

    I am wiped out from this week of running from here to there and then back again. Just 2 more weeks and driver's ed will be over. Then back to being home...
