    MiraB ... oh my!! My fondness for your Marjen just grows on me everytime!!! It makes such a statement. YTou can send it to me ... and the tulips no doubt, to Anael! Are the animal flowers for your childrens' hospital quilts? I see a Tiger Lily, Cat Tails, PUssy Willows, and DogWood ... not too original, am I? And guessing one might be a BatDragon? As for DSs Friday hospital run ... I vote for your DH, as you'll be doing lots of extras once he is back home! Will he come to your place for a few days? or back to his own?

    Anael
    .. a new love with your new camera? Great capture ... as if you'd been an inch or two off, you would not have caught the reflection so impressively! Another great wall hanging ... a nice Christmas addition!

    QNSue ... thanks for the accolades, though I don't think it's anywhere near as showy as the FWS. Of course, it all depends on the classes that I put it into (not always the "right" class for a quilt), the Judges thoughts ... and without a doubt, what other quilts show against it. No shows now til September. Today I am getting the hanging sleeve in place and then will properly finish it off by blocking the border and a good thread picking and trimming! Sorry that you are feeling low on the energy and hope you will "learn" to lay low to let the meds work. When do you go back to the Dr. for a progress check up?

    GGal ... for now, finishing PC, as above! And definitely need and want to tackle the plethora of PhDs!! Of course, need to keep at the MBs, though I seem to be only doing them on an as needed basis. However, want to get Aug and Sept done ahead, as that's when I am on the road again, quite a bit ... and did not manage any sewing during that time. OK, I did start something new ... the Red, White and Black/Charcoal GFGs ... and I'll fess, yesterday I started looking for light coloured, white based prints for the large GFGs. I'm hooked on them ... as an on the road project, as well as something I do upstairs, while waiting for supper to cook, or when talking on the phone etc.

    DublB ... great news! Assuming all checks out between now and 7/24, when will you move? and when does your home go up for sale?

    JeanieG ... time to get tough on those insurance guys! ggrrrrrrrr!!!!



    Ladies ... I have a new quilt rack ... simple to do! Used two coat hooks and a 1-1/2" dowel (8 ft long!). The hardest part is finding the coat hooks with a deep enough hook to hold the dowel. Mounted the hooks right near the ceiling, with the plans to hang the PC ... though it will still require folding up the bottom border, and part of the bottom row of blocks as the ceiling in my sewing room is just 87". Yes, Yes ... pics will follow ... I just wanted to tell you the good news!

    Rainy weather ... who sent that to me?
    (I'll gladly send it to you DublB!​)

    Took a break from working on the hanging sleeve, and to prep supper.
    It's brewing in the crockpot now!

    Here's a photo of the end of my new quilt rack .... waiting for my PC
    Hooks $10
    8 ft Dowel $22
    Blocks from wood stash!!
    The price was right ... and it was so Easy Peasy!

    Anael - what a wonderful wall hanging for Christmas. Way to go Girl! I have tons of Christmas fabric, thanks to my 80 year old aunt who decided she would not sew anymore. She gave me so much great fabric.

    Great quilt rack for your quilts, QuiltE! What a great idea! You can change quilts with the season! I sent my Insurance Adjustor quite an earful yesterday. I've about had it! I hate to make him mad at this point, but I will be reporting all these problems to his supervisor after the fact.

    Bev, when do you move??? Looked like the house was pretty empty! I don't envy you all the work involved in your move though. I packed up a lot of my kitchen for our problem here, so know what you will be going through. I had ServPro pack up the breakables.

    QuiltE what a great quilt rack, now there is no excuse for not taking pics, although do be careful when hanging a quilt.

    If I lose/win the coin toss I plan on taking my hexagons to work on while sitting at the hospital. I have started putting the top border on the GFG quilt.

    Not sure if DS will spend a few days at home or at his place, all depends on what the doc says, he will have to sleep in his sisters bedroom as I have taken over his ( it was the larger bedroom of the two)

    The other animal flowers were Snapdragon, DandyLion, Chimp-Pansy, Marygold and Poppy

    Have a great day everyone I am going to do some quilting, got distracted yesterday and didn't get as much done as I would have liked.

    Felt better this afternoon; worked in the quilt room. Hope I can continue this good feeling this week...only half way through the first of three med cards...then am told to take the antibiotics after that, in about two and half months, they will x-ray again. Seems like that is forever in the future right now...but will take it one day at a time. As long as I can feel like quilting, it will be ok.

    Love the colors in your wall hanging, Anael. And want to see the blue one when you finish it.

    QuiltE, you peeked into my great room and got the quilt hanging idea!! We hung the FWSQ on a closet rod there...length wise, so it fits on the wall, looking like its on a bed, and you are standing at the side of the bed.

    JeanieG, go ahead and go above that insurance guy's head that it stuck on his ??? and not doing his job. He needs to be shook up a bit... and you need some action.

    Mirabelle, good luck with your son and caring for him. You could "temporary" move the girly things out, and put in his scheme of colors for a short time period. Or not, so it will encourage him to get well quicker!

    May you all have a good week! Sunshine for everyone but Dublb, and she gets all the rain this week!

    JeanieG ... good for you for speaking up, and don't hold back from here on. Each time, ask for specific commitments/deadlines and don't give them space when the deadlines are not met. Follow up immediately. They'll soon get the message. Your life has been severely affected, and it needs to get back to normal. I keep wondering if your health problems were a result of the problems. Yes, stress, but also, thinking of moulds that got released into the air as a result ... and you breathed in to make you sick. Suggest moving out to a hotel at their expense, and I bet things will start to move quickly!

    QNSue ... feeling better is good, though don't go back into full gear for awhile! Keep the slower pace, and let yourself get better.

    MiraB ... ha! there's only one problem with the location ... I doubt I can get the distance to get pics. We'll see when I get the Pony hung. It'll still have to have it's bottom turned up as just not enough height. There's no where else in my home with a large open wall. Yea for your GFG progress!

    Just finished reading all the posts from the last few days. I love sitting down with yinz and catching up. I worked an extra day this week. This is Jan's Law of Economics: work an extra day, FART an extra day. Yes, I went on 2 FARTs last week and spent 2 days paychecks LOL. Haven't done any sewing in a week but I've petted a lot of fabric. I know Anne is working a lot; wonder if she's been shopping, too.

    Mirab, did your son have his surgery? Hope he does well.

    QNS, you know time is the best healer. Rest and let those meds work.

    Anael, beautiful pic with your new camera. I love your wall hanging-very nice pattern and color choices.

    QE, you are smart & thrifty. I did something similar for my flannel wall; since flannel is so light I just used Command Strips hooks and a cafe curtain rod to hold it up. I may have to try the heavier wooden mounts for the quilt above my fireplace-it sort of sags down in the middle.

    Jeanie, I'm having as much trouble with the insurance people with my car. They're trying to say it was "an act of God" that a wire fell down. I'm sorry, God makes tornadoes and things, not wires fall down. Took car into shop today so we'll see what happens.

    Bev-good luck on your new house--it's a beauty; lots of quilting space!

    Carrie & Ggal, hi to ya. You must be busy sewing up a storm.

    Question for yinz: do you have a recipe for Scottish Eggs? I think they're hard boiled eggs wrapped in some kind of meatloafy stuff and baked. I've googled and looked in cook books but can't find a recipe. My DS took us to a Pirates game yesterday and they had these on the menu and he mentioned he loves them but not many restaurants offer them. Thought I'd ask you first since so many of you are good cooks.

    Have a great day today. No extra work for me this week (I hope) but I have got to clean my upstairs. It's so dusty that MrJanRn sneezes every time he goes up there.

    Anael - more beautiful Sylvia blocks!

    Jan - I just googled Scotch Eggs. It came up with lots of recipes. Evidently the hard boiled eggs are wrapped in a sausage mixture, then rolled in various toppings (cornflakes, breadcrumbs, etc.) and either baked or deep fat fried. I remember having these before, but for the life of me cannot remember when!

    Anael, great job on the blocks.

    Laies, you were quick to post recipes and I thank you, too. No luck in my cookbooks. Off to town. DH had a another flat tir on his tractor this morning. Feeling better. Fixed lunch, cleaned up kitchen and worked in the quilting room, resizing an 18 inch block down to 12 inches. Whew!

    Oh wow, so much has gone on since I logged on. I can't even remember what I wanted ta say ta each o' ya.
    Dh & I had a bad day yesterday. We just missed our DDad's. We took it out on each other. We snapped & argued w/each other all day. Finally, in the late evenin', we apologized ta each other & I cried on his shoulder for about 30 min.s.
    We have a contract, any number o' things can go wrong between now & July 24 when we are supposed ta close. Inspections start this week & we have a 10 day back out period. Then the appraisals start. The bank doesn't want ta pay for the appraisal if we are just gonna back out. Then we will have ta try ta git any repairs done that the bank wants done before they will give us a mortgage. (I'm prayin' that there isn't any o' those.) The owners are sayin' they are sellin' it "as where is." Since this a conventional loan I sure hope we don't have this problem. When we tried ta buy a house 2 years ago, this was what finally kept us from gittin' it. (It was a conventional loan also.) We will try ta fix up & sell our house after we move out o' it.

    That's it Anael!!! Eew--doesn't sound like something I'd eat. I love my son but I'm not sure this is something I'd make for him. I was looking for Scottish eggs and nothing was coming up in my search. Thank you thank you. Gotta think about this one LOL.

    Oh am I envious of that camera Anael! It sure takes gorgeous photos. Love that rose, I went out and cut out all the spent blooms on mine this morning.

    Jeanie, I'm very happy with my 'new' camera, I'm so glad I bought it!

    Beautiful red tea rose, Anael. Wish I could send you a thousand more bloomed roses...they are really putting on a show here...white, golden, pink, orange and red.

    Think its time to rest a few moments. Will move young chicks and hen pen into chicken yard tomorrow morning, and little ducks in with big ducks, also. Then we can have our gate open again....for a while. Need to train the young guineas to a harness and leash...and tie them out to different locations. LOL!!!

    I'm like dublb--so much to catch up on.
    I'm so glad you are feeling better QNS! Rest does wonders. Hope you are getting the sunshine we've had for the last 2 days.
    2nd sister and BIL left this am. Ran to town for chiro appt. Feeling a little sore yet--hopefully my cousin Ilean will head home as well. Finally stopped at LQS Bought the last kit that had the Iowa colored fabric. She's sold out of bolt fabric but did get a couple yards of the gray/black and white.
    Sis and I cut some kale from the garden--first time I've planted it. SonIL uses it in his stampot, Anael. I know it freezes well-so froze a big ziplock of it. Sis sauteed some in butter and garlic and another batch steamed with garlic. Then added some cooked juliene slices of beef to the sauteed version and cubed, cooked chicken to the second. Very tasty. Any one else use kale?
    No egg recipe, Jeanie.
    Pretty blocks, pretty rose. Thanks for sharing Anael.
    Not going to last long in a chair--gotta stand now for a while. Later.

    JanRN, DS has his surgery this Friday, he tore his Meniscus muscle about 14 years ago and this will be his 4th surgery to try and fix it, so fingers crossed. Scotch eggs are delicious but do use sausage mince not regular mince.

    Anael your rose is stunning, wish my camera worked as good as yours, and your Sylvia's blocks are just beautiful eye candy, wish I would get enthused about mine, even stole er I mean borrowed fabric from DD. Very different to what I am used to using..

    QNS I am so glad you are feeling better but please keep resting and not try to do too much and have a relapse..

    Bev I have my fingers crossed for you and your DH that everything goes well. When I worked in the Bank a million years ago I did all the Home Loan approvals but your system is very different from ours.

    I am off to a Doc's appt, then home for lunch and more quilting, I think it is finally talking to me. I was struggling on the weekend and didn't get as much accomplished as I would have liked... trying not to get distracted as I want this one finished..

    JanRN ... Good Grief ... get that hanging rod fixed, before one of your precious quilts drop into the fire! Oh common, you can make those eggs for your DS, and impress him! Proud of you to have TWO FARTs last week! ... WTG!!!! Looks like you had a very full week!

    Anael ... Pretty Sylvias and rose! This camera is going to be a real treat for your Isa and Bram photos!

    DublB ... good luck with your closing to come.

    QNSue ... good to know you are feeling a bit better. You;ll have to show us a pic of those guineas with a harness and leash!!

    OKSGlad ... I'm intrigued, so photos of your Iowa fabric please! Are you taking your GFGs with you for the grand getaway? No recipe, but my adopted sister makes kale salad for a lot of our family GTGs. Better tell cousin Ilene to scoot!

    MiraB ... hoping that your Dr appt, is only good news.
