    MiraB ... nothing like getting a police escort! ....Guess they know all about you1!!! I loved that fabric the moment I saw it ... and just might be making a window blind with what I have left. When I saw it finished up, I like it even more ... funny how the simplest things can catch our eyes. The colours and the details are what did me in from the beginning. I totally understand your method in your madness (and would probably do the same!) ... I just hope you don't do further damage and take it beyond repair. Look forward to seeing your Mountain finished ... hhmmmm that must be a Get Well quilt for your DS. No group sewing this week? And good luck to your DS for his check up!


    Til Later, Ladies!

    Hi DD, big congrats on the new little one on its way. I love babies. My youngest grand is 1.5 years, a little bit of an after thought so he is my last little cuddler. I'm excited for you.

    I just love that sheep fabric. Is it from Suebee? It is adorable and the colours are so cheery.

    I am supposed to be out in the garden dead heading, but felt the need for a QB fix so I came in for a break.

    Love those sheep, DD!!

    D_D--cute baby blanket. We (the shop where I work) have a panel with those sheep and a flannel that is from the same line with sheep all over it. Your pink flowers on the back look so fun!

    Janie--I just just got done with dishes and have to get laundry started next. No work outside for me today. Hope you can get yours all caught up so you can get to the sewing room.

    QNS--how is your "setting up" going?

    What furniture and sewing machines I have is in place now. Now to get up the nerve to touch and start the embroidery machine to do a trial run on the guitar...tooooo tired today. Still on medication, and still a bit dizzy headed, so it may have to wait a few more days. Nap time now.

    ooooooooooh DDamsel .... so cute for your next Grand!
    even with prairie points!
    I have a FQ of the coordinating print with sheep all over that a friend sent to me. Unfortunately it came just a little too late for the PC, otherwise it would have been in there.

    Though .... we can't have Grandbaby Sheep taking you away from your PC mad sewing!!!!!

    Take it easy NinaSue!!!

    yes! I LOVE this fabric, it IS "SusyBee" I bought ten yards or so of the prints and panels, I dont think I bought enough of the coordinates and when I went back they were SOLD OUT. must be a popular group! good thing I got it when I saw it

    I am sewing PC... a bit at a time... Im SUPPOSED to be cleaning house... but making excuses, laundry can be done around sewing... so it has to be laundry day right??? it is just to darn hot to do anything else anyway!

    DD that fabric is so cute and big congrats on the new grand baby.

    Carriem I love your D4P and can't wait to see your Aeroplane quilt finished.

    QNS take things easy until you are well enough to tackle the big jobs, there is always tomorrow.

    I am going to spend most of the day sorting out my mess of a sewing room, housework can wait until tomorrow it never goes away

    shhhhhhh!!!! ... don;t wake QNSue, from her much needed nap!

    DDamsel
    ... good ploy ... too hot to do anything but sew! Besides it's summer, so how about getting all your little minions trained to clean the house and make the meals .... you could supervise that, while you sew!~

    CarrieM ... great fabric choice

    MiraB ... how did things go for your DS today? Got the OK from the Doc to go back to work on Monday? Any limitations for him now? Now, take care of yourself!

    QuiltE, 4 hours before he sees the Doc, its still morning here and he goes after lunch. Taking care of myself I almost have a childrens quilt pieced, and after I get home this afternoon plan on putting the binding on Smith Mountain, that might do me for today................that is if there is nothing on tv to watch tonight then I MIGHT spend a few more hours in my sewing room I know I am getting carried away now, do you want more smiley faces ??????????????

    Well I was typing away and them something happened and I lost everything...

    Doc is not happy with the wound healing and wants to leave the stitches in for another 5 days as DS is mobile and doing exercises he doesn't want the stitches to tear...

    Now back to the sewing room to sew a border on my kids quilt then I can get the binding on Smith Mountain..

    QuiltE it is 3pm Friday here, will have to check the time differences, have a happy Canada Day sewing and creating

    MiraB ... Another beauty you have there!!! Such a soft and pretty quilt for a wee Miss. Your embroidery detail is phenomenal. It's truly a keeper, so is there a special little one for whom it is destined?

    I've always remember it as you're on the other end of the day, ahead of us plus a couple hours .... plus of course, that only counts when I "remember"!!! One of our neighbours kids worked in Aus ... now get this, gave boat cruise commentaries to the tourists in the harbour (Sydney?), then met a guy. Came home, he followed and stayed, went back, came back to get married and they lived happily ever after in Aus!! So parents were always juggling time for calling ... and got us first used to the time change. Oh dear for your DS ... I guess that's kind of a good news bad news that they want the stitches in for protection. Does that mean he's back to work? or stay home for a bit longer? Time now Friday, 7:31 am, so you are soon to bed! Your shoulder does not hurt ... It'll be happy to go to bed!

    All I can say after my day of sewing is OUCH !!!!! Got the binding sewn on Smith Mountain and finished hand sewing the binding on my Mini Dresdens tonight. It is now 10pm and I am ready for bed.

    DS goes back to work 6pm Monday evening for a 12 hour night shift, thank goodness he is sitting in an office all night in front of 3 computer screens. He controls the movements of the cane trains, cane harvest season started 2 weeks ago so not a good start to the season for him.

    DD is participating in the Townsville Festival Fun Run, and as part of her responsibilities in being chosen to do this she has to raise money for charity, so I though I would make her a couple of kids quilts to be raffled or auctioned as all money raised is going to the Ronald McDonald House at the Hospital, which caters for families of sick children who need somewhere to stay while the kids are in hospital.

    No rest for the wicked around here Goodnight everyone

    Sooo nice to be able to read a few messages this morning, good and bad. Differences in time zone I tend to forget, even those in the USA. Sorry ds is not healing as quickly as the doctor wanted, Mirabelle. Your finished projects are out standing, Mirabelle.

    Sigh! sigh!!! no MBs to admire and pet. Delayed reactions makes excitement build up a little more. Maybe, OksewGlad, the sender could post photos for you. And my MB is very slow about getting here.....sigh!!

    Slept out this morning, rested all day yesterday. Resting all day today. Tomorrow, bfs and dh and I are all going to DM to have a bit of fun. Looking forward to that, except it is sooooooo hot here.

    Mirabelle....beautiful finishes but beauty doesn't always have to come with pain.
    QNS...glad you're resting. You will surely not be forgotten and get your MB soon. The month is almost gone.
    DD....very nice fabric for a little one.
    This is short this morning...I have to check on the raspberries and dust my cole crops before it gets too hot to move outside....check back later today. Have a good one everyone!
