    Thanks for the kind words QNS, and I hope you are feeling better, mmm energy, my only trick is I drink a LOT of coffee and not that instant kind, the real thing. My coffee machine grinds the beans and makes a great long black.. I'm not that fussed about cappuccinos, I prefer strong black coffee..

    Even the so called 'experts' will argue the pros and cons of drinking coffee. Pick any subject, e.i., even weather, and you will get a difference of opinion. knowledge.facts..that always support what that person is saying. 'Thin' is bad; fat is better, just anything has its pros and cons, so you can always say that, 'you' are right! Guess it boils down to the unique one of a kind personality and way of thinking. And that is a good thing, not a bad thing.

    Look for trouble and you will find it. Look for beauty to admire and you will find it. But to create beauty, that is a wonderful talent that you have the ability to do that I enjoy viewing...from around the world. It just makes the world a better place. Thank you.

    QNS, I love those last words you typed: look for beauty. That's what I love about this PC thread. Everywhere you look there's another beautiful quilt, block, WIP, project, etc., to admire. And then there are all of yinz...what a beautiful group of friends. Thank you, QNS, for reminding us to look around!

    MiraB ... yes, I am tired too from your week ahead! Another fantastic quilt in the works. Your summer quilt show and gathering must be soon to come. When? How many of yours will be on display? I hope you will get some pics then, so we can all enjoy it here too! So now we know the secret to your energy = caffeine! Lots of java!

    QNSue ... right on! so many things have two sides to them. The important thing is to remember life is not all black and white. While we are philosophizing ..... Is the glass half full? or half empty?

    When I count my blessings, QuiltE, the cup overflows. So many things to be thankful for. Especially, the FART trips and look at this shop here, all the beautiful treasures awaiting just to come home with me.!

    Going on FART trips, I count my blessings, time spend with good Friends enjoying the day! They call my attention to beautiful things that I may have overlooked!

    I count my blessings when I am privileged to see wonderful talent and abilities of others on this PC trail in the lovely blocks and quilts they have put together. And thankful that they have shared with me.

    DH's blisters have flattened out nicely without breaking...still keeping it wrapped ..don't want any infection!!!

    Mr.Honchey went for a walk and said there are dead frogs all over the road....yuck...

    I forgot my phone charger at home and have to go to Walmart to pick up a car charger...while we're in the vicinity we'll stop at Friendly's and have some lunch with a Happy Ending Sundae....I do cook some while we're here but not as much when we're home in NJ...

    I'm the optimist and Bob is the pessimist in our family.....they do say opposites attract each other...I guess that's what happened with us..

    Just received an email from a LQS 'bout a July 4th sale...I guess you'all know where I'll be going in a few days

    Today is going to be just a relaxing day and only doing what we feel like doing....settling in day or two...it's supposed to rain for the next several days anyway...

    Our town decided not to have any type of celebration for the 4th...so we have to find a place to go see the fireworks..I'm really disappointed 'cause last year so so much fun...and Bob missed it...I was here with my sister and her DH....We do like the fireworks...me more than Bob...all the oohs and ahhs....

    Well, it's almost time for lunch... so see you all later....

    Mirabelle - I don't think I've seen that sashing before, and I just love it! It adds so much to those darling appliques. What a marvelous quilt!!!

    What a grand way to celebrate on the 4th, Honchey ... no stores will be open here for our Canada Day, tomorrow. How disappointing it must be for you, with no fireworks as I know you were looking forward to it. Did you do that resting today, to settle into your southern life?

    Little, as in only 7"x17" ... some of the leftovers from Monty last year. Again, the O Canada text fabric and micro-stippling for the background. A little bit of fun while I did more FMQ practice.

    Thanks Ladies!! ... it's nothing huge and grand ... though sometimes it's nice to have something a little smaller, just to brighten a spot on a table. I might even make it into a wall hanging for a spot by my entry door, where only something small fits!

    A lot to read

    Mirabelle, your applique quilt is beautiful. Lovely designs!

    QuiltE, nice table runner or wall hanging! There's always something you can practice your skills on

    QNS, I hope you're starting to feel better. It's no fun being tired and not up to what you want to do!!

    Me? I had a busy weekend. Yesterday it was twin day, my DDIL was gone so I took care of them with my DS. I changed diapers, fed them, got puked on (this time Bram did it) and put Mick to bed. So I had a great day.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    JeanieG it is an easy sashing to do, I cut my strips 1 1/2 inches and sewed 3 together, this gives you a 3 inch wide sashing and the cornerstones are a Nine Patch, it is a very effective sashing. I didn't match color, whatever I picked up was what was sewn...

    Anael sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, cuddles, and feed time and I bet you didn't mind changing a few diapers

    Monday is over and my house is all clean, even steam cleaned the floors, and managed to get some sewing done. Tomorrow is grocery day and I just checked my freezer and I don't have to buy much so that's good..

    Our freezers are full too, Mirabelle. But the Chicken Feed can is on EMPTY so have to go this morning to K. and get chicken feed. Cannot go until after ten, so I can call and see how many dozen eggs I can take with me to sell; think I am up to 14 dozen or so.

    QuiltE, love your topper/runner; a good one to start on. Now what is next?

    Anael, good to hear from you; so glad you had an enjoyable 'Grand Mother' weekend.

    I pulled all the boxes on the top shelf down in my sewing room. Table is groaning with so many scraps on it. And there is no place to sit in there now. It's topsy turvey, upside down, being re-organized from top to bottom. Well, no, the bottom has not been pulled yet. Anyone available for help???? LOL!!

    Have a good day!!

    Anael...I've been missing you and was ready to ask if the posse needed to be sent out for you. So happy that you had touching time with your little ones. Nice you have today to rest up.
    QuiltE...nice to have you back tool. Cute runner.
    Honchey....really missed you this past month. I hope your life is leveling out a little and you are moving around better.
    QNS...I've drooled over the Horne Quilter's Dream but my sewing room is way to small. Still trying to figure out how to accommodate my new machine as the Gidget table doesn't have a large enough hole so it just sits on top. It is my current "excuse " for not quilting but that has to end because I have things that need quilting.
    Mirabelle...lovely quilt. All of your beautiful embrodiery work is making me think twice about an embrodiery machine...which I don't have the room or money for right now.
    Jeanie and Dubib....such hot weather being reported out west. Stay cool and safe!
    I've missed comments to some of you but I can't remember your last post....but I do remember you.
    Me? I didn't sew over the weekend so I'm ready to get at the WW quilt and finish the blocks. I found a cuter baby quilt for my DGD's baby but want to get some other things out of the way before I start that. Hummmm.....already July. How soon will we see new MB's as well as the last of the June ones that haven't arrived.

    Just a quick hello to everyone, DH Provenge treatments went ok last week, didn't get sick from them. Two more to go, don't know when we will know if they are working. Our oldest son is having double or triple heart by-pass tomorrow morning, so won't be on for awhile, so please send some prayers for us tomorrow, will be a 4 or 5 hour surgery. My sister still isn't doing very well. She is having a lot of trouble with her speech & thoughts when on the phone. She isn't on oxygen right now, so that is a plus, she has been told if lung cancer comes back it will come with a vengence, so some prayers for her also. I sure hope she doesn't have any more strokes.
    Thank you all.

    Just love it Mirabelle, I'll have to try that. I took a photo to put in my file. It sound so easy, but looks so complicated! Thanks for the instructions.

    I sent GrannyQ a PM that we all would meet in the virtual RV for a prayer or two, and we were all sending her {[(HUGS)]}.

    Update: my quilt room is a mess. I think I said that before, but it has not cleared itself up. Still hoping.
