    WOW QNS, that's an awful lot of money just for one program Did you ask here on the forum if anyone can do it for you? There's a special embroidery machine thread here.

    Have a great day tomorrow!

    Wheeee!!!! the MBs are starting to arrive!

    MiraB and JanieW ... such a beautiful block and a great quartet!

    Iowa Ladies ... my goodness, 82 stores!!! I'll sit here and be totally envious. The 9 shop Hop next month will seem minimal compared to what you have. How has the action been at your LQS, CarrieM? Have you been getting extra hours as a result?

    OKSGlad ... what are you going to do with the fabric? Your hexies will turn into a lasting memory of your trip!

    MiraB ... oh oh as to the Dr's diagnosis. Take care of it though, as bursitis can be nasty, and sneak up on you fast. Yes, chain piecing would be a tad on the repetitive motion concept. I like Anael's concept of non-repetitive!

    I'm lucky ... when my chiro reminds me something is quilting caused, she fully understands .... her sister is a quilter! So she works with me on it, recognizing it might be better to let me quilt, than to see me go off the deep end and need a shrink!

    Anael ... With your enabling and encouragement, I predict that MiraB's shopping might result in yet another sewing machine! Definitely good medicine!!! Another pretty picture .... I saw the 3-leaves and reminded me of some I have here in the grass. I always call it yellow clover, and did some surfing to see it's proper name is oxalis which I see OKSGlad called it too! It can be quite invasive, though it can be pretty too ... so consider that a weed is only something growing where you don't want it to be, and if you like it, and want it ........... ENJOY IT!! Mine is in the lawn, so I just enjoy its prettyness when it flowers, and otherwise, it's just kept in the grass. When some jumps in the flower bed, it pulls out easy enough, that it doesn't bother me!

    Golden Syrup ... I know there was a recipe here on the QB with it. Many were talking about what it was and how they made it. Here in Canada, if I see Golden Syrup in a recipe, to me, it's what we call Corn Syrup ... a commercially made syrup, sweet and sticky, but definitely NOT maple syrup! Nor is it interchangeable in a recipe.

    JanRN ... hope you did your all day sewing today ... and no side trips to xxxxxx!!!! AT LAST ... we get to see Christmas Rosie and for sure, nothing of which to be ashamed. You've done a wonderful job and I'm SO proud of you!!! I forget ... Rosie blocks were which size? Great fabric choices all round!

    QNSue... my goodness ... you are doing 120 guitar blocks? I know they are for your BIL, but what does he need 120 for? A club?

    Chatty much? ... just took a look at that embroidery thread. My goodness, they are only at post #1856 ... and they have been going for 3-1/2 yrs. hhmmmmm? what does that say about us?

    JeanieG
    ... that sounds like good news and that progress up to you to sort out with the contractor. You're lucky that they are paying out early ... I hope for your good, that the costs do not rise as the job proceeds.

    QuiltE, may I correct myself..80 shops in Iowa this year... and the 120 blocks are for a queen sized bed quilt...blocks are six inches each, finished.

    Yes, thank you, Anael. I cruised thru the site on QB, a little info there on Deco 340. See what Vickie comes up with tomorrow.

    Clouding up and looks like rain, again. Feeling like we have the Pacific NW weather here this year. Rain, rain and more rain.

    Not sure what Iowa fabric will become--will make something for the out of state siblings-7 of the 9 Iowans do not live here.
    Here's update on colorway for anniversary quilt. Top is now sandwiched and ready to be quilted--yeah. Had to change colors as was short on border fabric--yes you know the piece QE--so the whole color scheme was changed as well. Will post a completed pic when all done. Night all.Name:  L&G  2 50th.BMP

    I have a contract, & the interest rate is locked in at 4.125%. I'm cautious though. I tried ta buy a house 2 years ago & it was a dissaster. It needed repairs & Fannie May (who we were buyin' the house from) wouldn't let us do 'em & wouldn't do it themselves & the mortgage company wouldn't loan us the $ w/out the repairs. Sigh. Fannie May gave us other headaches before that. Pray that this goes smooth for us.
    I've been busy workin' on some crazy blocks. I joined a RR where we each embellish 1/4 0' each other's blocks. There was a person who dropped out & 1 block was lost & 1 block was done differently than requested. No one was mad but the lady w/the lost one was very sad. So we are makin' her another one. The lady who's block was done differently than she requested was not mad nor sad a'tall, but we are doin' her another block in her requested theme as a surprise. Well I've got 3 CQ blocks that have ta be done this month.
    I don't have time for anything right now. LOL (I will git my MB done though. I promise.)

    NinaSue I found this guitar outline, don't know if it will work for you

    http://www.annthegran.com/prd/Design...r/1/14029.aspx

    How do you take designs from your computer to the embroidery machine, I may be able to download a design for you and e-mail it to you. I can convert to any format, just let me know what you use. I don't have any designs of guitar outlines but I do have a Dakota CD that I haven't finished going through, might just do that this afternoon and look for you.

    Looks pretty good, Mirabelle...little more detail than the outline. Deco takes Art format. I have 'samples' from the Bernina Company and program on my computer. Looks to be the right size. Will consider it this evening after the FART trip today....actually bf ask me to go with her to get a lap top for her dh, so I said 'yes'.

    Off to work this morning after taking DD to class....hope everyone has a great day!!

    Someone (QE I think) asked if it has been busier at the LQS where I work and the answer is: YES. We have a slow day and then a busier day or two. Makes the day go by fast.

    More later...

    OKSGlad ... Your anniversary quilt is going to be a hit at the party and for them to enjoy for years to come. You'vbe put so much meaning into it ... forget, do the 4 cornerstones represent the # of offspring? And QuiltESewGlad, to be lurking in the background on this caper! Can't wait to see the finished product ... and when is the party?

    CarrieM ... here's to a fun day at work. I'm sure you enjoy meeting all the Shop Hoppers, from near and far! It must be wonderful to gather inspiration from them, and hear of their journeys. I hope you are getting around to some of the other LQS', just to check them out!

    DublB ... patience! Sounds like quite the RR, with all the embellishments. Too bad about the missing block, and the one not to their requests. Sometimes it happens, and I fear that I am the one who will miss the guidelines with our MBs.



    Wonder whom will get a MB today?

    (speaking of which, have we seen everyone's blocks from May, yet?)

    QNS...enjoy your trip! I remember getting my first computer and it would do absolutely nothing because I didn't know I had to buy software to make it work. What a disappointment.
    Mirabelle & Anael....you are the best for helping QNS with her new machine.
    OK...love the runner design. You really maximize your time to get so much done....but that is the life of a farmer's wife, huh?
    dubib....the tortoise always wins....patience. So nice of you to redo the RR block.
    Yesterday I combined a class project into a MB. Y seams no less. Need to finish it today and hope that it comes out square otherwise I have an orphan. Today is garden day and getting ready for a FART tomorrow. Several of us from class are going to central Illinois before the stores open and work our way back on HWY 74. It should be a fun day!

    Yep, I had a GREAT day with bf and she ended up doing all the driving 'cause she feels worse riding that driving some days. We got her dh computer to the great store of repair, and they will notify her of what is wrong and will have the excuse to go back next week again (like we need and excuse to have fun???? Lol!!)

    Shop owner and I agreed on her doing the drawing for the guitar, transferring it into ART and emailing it to me. We also discussed the tables issue, that the machines do not fit with the sewing tables I got from her and today's embroidery stand we took completely out of the box and checked it...then I told her I could not take it with me 'cause we were in Susan's car and there was no room. She agreed to look at (maybe fix) the problem with my 1530's sewing table I ordered that was put together backward. Still discussing the new Bernina 550 desk that does not allow the knee lift to work.

    And bf took me to the last 3 local area shops in Iowa, (Lucas, Chariton two shops: Sampler and Ben Franklin) and I found fabric that came home with me. Will show pictures tomorrow when I get a minute to do so...schedule looks very busy...housework (clean out bottom of refrigerator freezer that mysteriously got berry juice in it...drawer was left ajar last night) , share crop of rhubarb with neighbor and quilt store owner here, etc., and take meds tomorrow (did not today)...they sometimes make me sleepy.

    You've been home, how long, DublB? Time to unpack .......... and before you start the serious packing!


    QNSue ... my goodness what a day, with a lot of miles travelled and stops made! Sounds like you are having a lot of problems with your machines and tables. And no meds?


    Today was a bit of a trip down memory lane for me ... started out as a normal day in the office and working on a couple of projects. ... OKSGlad and GGal, you'll get a chuckle at this ... got a call this morning from friends that they needed a new Hay Moisture Tester and could not get one locally (2 hrs drive from me). Well, the John Deere dealer could, but it would be two weeks. As though that would be any good! So I was commissioned to locate and acquire one at our local TSC. A phone call and then off to pick it up, proud of Mission Accomplished! Then ... I checked with the local JD and New Holland dealers. Guess what? they had several models and different prices. So off I went in the other direction. Checked them out re the different sizes and features. Came home with one that was far better ... and $100 LESS. Now I have to take the other back to TSC ... and meet them 1/2 way tmro for the great exchange. hhmmmm, suppose I could keep the difference and do a little FART? Nahhh I am SO kind!

    Just call me Farm Wife for Hire!
    (and yes, I enjoyed it ... and reminded myself how much I miss it, even after all this time!)

    QNS--I am happy to hear the shop owner is working with you since you told her in advance what you wanted the machine for....it only seems right. Sounds like you had a nice time with bf today.

    QE--Bev is the only one who hasn't shown us her May MB yet....which I see she told us. I look forward to seeing the new blocks posted over the next couple weeks. My June block has gone out and I would guess will arrive by the weekend.

    Bev--praying things go smoothly at the inspection.

    OK--I look forward to seeing the finished anniversary quilt.

    Ggal--have a fun shop hop tomorrow! Are some of those shops the same that were in the IL/IN one I did last year on the way to the retreat? Are you looking for anything particular? I am keeping the booklet from the All Iowa Shop Hop so I can have a list of shops when I am out here and there. Our Fall Retreat is going to be at a different location this time...south instead of east, so we will be doing some shop hopping on our way there...I think there are 4 shops between here and there we haven't been to before.

    Jan--great job on your Rosie quilt!!

    Karen--not sure if I posted or not, but you had some very nice quilts in the last week...sorry you are in pain. Did you get some good rest in?

    Anael--how is the blue Christmas wallhanging coming along? Did you say today was "twin day"?

    Jeanie--happy to hear the check is on it's way, now for the contractors to get there sooner than later.

    Janie, DD and GrannyQ--you must be pretty busy since we haven't heard from you in a while???

    Honchey--just thought I'd say "hi" in case you are checking in...praying for you.

    Tomorrow after taking DD to dr's ed class, if it isn't raining I plan to take a walk, get cleaned up and then work on the "Vanilla Sky" quilt I am working on. (If rain I sew sooner) I have one side of the outer border, a little quilting and binding left. I have to pick her up at noon, so would like to at least get the border and quilting finished...maybe even miter the binding strips.

    Carrie, I didn't start the blue Christmas wallhanging yet. I made some Dear Jane blocks instead
    No, it wasn't twin day, most of the time I'm going there on Saturday or Sunday.

    Janie isn't home, she's at her DS's to help out.

    QNS, I'm glad you'll get your guitar outline after all. I hope you can sort out the table problem!

    QNS, I don't know if you do have embroidery designs already? Here http://www.amazingembroiderydesigns....y-designs.html a new free alphabeth started today. Just sign up and download a new letter each day. You can select the format you need.

    Thanks, Anael, its one step, one slow step at a time, for me with the embroidery machine...then I can look beyond and may be continue it onward...first the project for BIL...and can tell you if I like it then.

    I did not take my pill yesterday morning, but took the Mucinex and antibiotic last night...gee, I slept hard all night!!

    I have cows, and cows to send to the 'dairy' cow people here. Outlined cows and yellow cows. Trust the Sampler to have the yellow cows. Most of what we see are holestein cows...

    Off and running here for the day, there are at least a dozen things that need my TLC in garden, orchard and inside as well. Have a good day.

    QuiltE, I started my Jane about 2 years ago and it's a WIP I'm not even halfway there. Made 86 blocks and 12 triangles so I still have a long way to go.

    DD, welcome back You can have a bit of our rain, the streets are flooded here right now.

    Love your favorite colors, Carrie, purple and green. Nicely done!! And that is a magic word when you are hurrying to finish a quilt and the relief when you can say "Done!"
