    I agree with gardnergal - QuiltE's quilter did a marvelous job (again) with her PC Quilt. She really knows how to bring out the best in each block!

    Gardnergal - I have been waiting a week for a check from the Insurance Co. so work can begin on the restoration of my kitchen and living room. I cannot believe they don't overnight something like that!

    I'm home!! Long trip, it's thundering and lightening and forecast of hail, 'cause we just haven't had enough moisture lately. :rollseyes:

    Just when I was ready to curl into the fetal position and pull the covers over my head, the postie arrived, with not one, but two gorgeous blocks from QNS just overflowing with thoughtfulness.

    Thanks you so very much, QNS. I promise to get pictures on here tonight, but first I have to get some laundry going, throw something on for dinner and get important plants protected 'cause we're in for another bad one.

    It's so good to be home.

    Honchey - hope those little squares will help with your Charming quilt.

    Ggal - DS is doing well, his knee is still very swollen but hopefully that will go down before he has to return to work on Monday. Have to go shopping for him today. My shoulder is still a little sore but I am going to sew today as I have missed it, might do some machine embroidery and baste Animal Flowers ready to quilt it...

    QuiltE - I didn't realise I had made the first Sylvia's block with roses,, Your PC quilt is beautiful, can't wait to see it draped in ribbons at the Fair

    QNS - It's great that you are having fun with your Bernina, please show us your quilting

    JeanieG - What a great MB and it looks so good with your others. I hope work starts soon at your home.

    JanieW - So glad you got home safe and sound, I saw the flooding on the news and it looked really bad

    thanks everyone for all your good thoughts. I'm surprised to hear you got the news in Oz, Karen. It was really bad. Some places in Calgary will take 10 years or so to get back to normal. It is still bad in High River (aptly named!) Unfortunately 3 people died, one of them rescuing a friend.

    The storm we had tonight wasn't as bad as predicted, lots of noise, some rain and no hail. Yay.

    Just got a call that we are getting company for Canada Day on July 1. The good news is that we will partake in the ethnic food booths if they get the venue cleaned up from last week's flood.

    Here are the blocks that I got this month from QNS. They are called All Ways. The green one has Springtime in the Rockies and the red one reminds me very much of a barn. I love them, QNS. Thank you so much.

    The storm is over, the sun is peaking out and I am going to bed. If I wait til it gets dark, that is around midnight so that's not going to happen.

    Good luck on your adventure tomorrow, QNS. I hope you get your tables and machines all sorted out.

    Night all!

    very happy you are pleased with the blocks and that you are oK and all is well at your homestead.

    Tomorrow will be whatever will be. That's what we decided about the guineas sitting on her eggs outside again and her mate; they are in a corner, so maybe they will live the 21 days from now when the eggs hatch if a wild coyote or coon does not find them. Whatever will be, will be. Big Guy upstairs is trying to tell me who is in charge and its not little olde me. Blessed be to His will. Good night everyone.

    Oh, and the pie was underrated and understated. Gooooooooood MMmmmmmmmmm.

    What a pretty block Carrie-Jeanie's jumping for joy-helps make up for the sloooowwwww restoration job.

    Isn't it amazing how one block; different fabrics can change the look of the design. Very nice QNS. Glad you're safe and sound Janie.

    Okay, short stop tonight, so if I missed anyone .... Ilean is back-did a 2 and half hour drive one way to airport to get DS and GF. Hmm mercysland acupuncture maybe worth looking into. My chiro also does acupuncture.
    Going to call it an early night. Good to have kids here.

    That is marvelous Deranged! Just love it! Are you going with a white background or a color?

    Wow lots of MBs received today! I got a bright cheerful block today in the mail from Honchey!! Thank you so much!! DD is using my laptop for her final driver's ed paper tonight and the pictures are on that, so I will be sure to post tomorrow...if not in the morning then when I get home from work.

    D_D--your PC quilt is great!!! I love the contrast. Please be sure to show us some up close pictures when you get the sashing on. Are you using a tan or blue?

    I don't like using this computer much so I will catch up more tomorrow or Thursday....but wanted to let Honchey know her block was very well received!

    Hi Jeanie
    the picture dosent do justice to the colors... the tan is very warm and so is the cream, it washes out so badly with the camera flash.

    I have a warm chocolate brown for sashing and crappy cornerstones

    I was wondering why you would use "crappy" cornerstones. LOL

    QNSue ... Thanks for your positive response to my PC, along with noting the Canadian twist! I'm SO happy you are finding your groove with your new machine. I just finished the simple tabletopper tonight ... tmro pictures to share, hopefully along with your placemats! Good luck on sorting out about your tables/machines.

    JeanieG and CarrieM ... OMG ... that is a beautiful block! Wonderful colours and fabric selection, giving perfect contrast and movement.

    GGal ... thanks ... it did go to the Fair, and yes a red ribbon plus the Grand for Machine Quilted Quilts!! *blush* Other Fairs aren't til September/October, so I'm not going to count my chickens in advance!! So many to compete with to even think about it. Which reminds me ... I have yet to start a thread about the Fair! OOPS!

    JeanieG ... Thanks too ... I know I am blessed with a great LAQ, and tell her that, every chance I get! Looks like it's time for you to get on the warpath with the insurance company ........... again! gggrrrrrrr!!!!

    MiraB ... oh sure!!! Try to convince me that you did not PICK those roses!!! Glad to know DS is coming along well ... no doubt thanks to all your TLC. Did you do some sewing today? I'm thinking the embroidery might not be as hard on your shoulder as quilting? Wouldn't it be nice to have our two PCs together? ... yours has a lot more exquisite designs ... I still can't get over the quilting on the sashing and cornerstones. Amazing!!

    QNSue and JanieW ... what a lovely pair of blocks. I really like the simplicity and yet a lot happening within it. Looks like that block would make an interesting secondary pattern.

    JanieW ... so glad to know you are home, safe and sound. No doubt about it, there's going to be BIG celebrations in Cowtown for Canada Day ... Nenshi said so, so we know it will happen! And then onwards to the Stampede!!! Rest up, so you can really enjoy your company. Do you know anyone seriously affected by the flood ... or as the High River Mayor corrected today, it's a disaster, not a flood. So sad ... and outright unbelievable, even seeing the pics.

    DDamsel ........ oooooooo ..... aaaaaah ......... *sigh* ....OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!! Yes my dear, sew like a madwoman, so we can really see it!!!! I see you've joined me with a couple of personal touches ... bottom left and bottom right ... Snake? and Coyote? or? Perhaps more there, that I didn't find? Thanks for your love fest ... yours is so classy ... mine so loud! *giggles* ... crappy cornerstones!!!

    Omgosh all the eye candy! Blocks & PC's either done or comin' along great!
    I know that I was supposed ta mail my MB out taday but I really don't like it. So I'm redoin' it now. Besides it'll take me less time ta make another one than ta do those tiny black applique lines ta keep the center from floatin'. I really messed up on color placement. I'll do it tanight & mail it out tamarrow.

    QuiltE you always make me laugh, just checked the other fabrics and surprise surprise there are a few more roses to stitch into Sylvia I have been doing a "little" bit of sewing today. Am doing some embroidery also but I think it is actually worse for the shoulder as I am constantly rethreading the machine and the left shoulder gets a workout.. Just had a call from the Doc's and he wants to see me in regards to my x-rays that were taken last week, won't see him until the 9th of next month as next Wednesday I am having an ultra-sound on the shoulder, so may as well see him when I have done both..aaarrrggghhhhh

    Oh mirabelle-bummer about the continued shoulder issues. Here chiro wants me to get see MD, get xrays to check if other issues are at hand-all before Monday night!!

    DD It is fantastic!! Will you be handsewing the sashings and "s"crappy cornerstones by hand, too? Then onto the final--hand quilting, too?

    If all's quiet from this end-well life is kind of busy right now. Hopefully can check in and at least get a peek at those MB's that are flying through the air!
