    Hello All!

    D_D--that is a nice block you sent Bev...great colors/fabrics.

    Mirabelle--another great black/white combo for Jan...good job.

    Ggal--I got fabrics chosen for the SYE block and paper sections cut out. I should be home all day tomorrow so will get fabric cut and maybe start pp'ing. I just need a background fabric which I will pick up on Wednesday when I work.

    I went to the doctor today for my shoulder she said it is either tendonitis or bursitis...same treatment for both: physical therapy. My regular PT is booked all week but I am on the cancellation list so hope to get a call sooner than later. It has been very hard not sewing much the last 3 weeks.

    Oh Jan & Mirabelle - that block is wonderful! What a gorgeous quilt Jan is going to have with those blocks!

    Carrie, I'm glad that your diagnosis on your shoulder is something that can be "fixed" with PT. That is certainly good news! I'm surprised they did not put you on an anti-inflamatory!

    DDamsel - Hi to you toooooo!!, love the block you made for Dublb, what is the name of it..

    Anael - I failed Art class on High School, couldn't draw stick people to save my life my art teacher told me I was a lost cause to the art world

    JanieW so sorry you won't be joining us on our next journey but please do stay with us and cheer us on from the sidelines, otherwise we will miss you

    Bev so glad you are getting rain, it has been raining here for 2 days, but we either get torrential downpours or fine misty rain, its the fine misty rain at the moment, just annoying as it has brought the cold weather with it.

    Ggal I will make the quilt for DH in blues and creams, I have enough in my stash so that's an added bonus

    JeanieG border fabric that won't play nice happens all the time, its why we have to buy more fabric that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it

    JanRN I am so pleased that you liked the block, hope it goes well with your others.

    Carriem I am sorry to hear that you have bursitis, shoulder pain is no fun but it won't defeat us...

    Had fun in my sewing room yesterday, DD gave me a bag of scraps last time I sew her so I spent the day sorting them out and sewing Wild and Goosey blocks, I now have 36 blocks made, (don't get excited they are only 3 inches) so need a lot more. Also had the embroidery machine purring along while I sewed. Today I have managed to get all the laundry done, dusted and mopped the house so NOW it is time to hide out in my sewing room again..
    Have a great day everyone.

    Only 20 more posts to go for the big 5,000 and party time

    Good News! I finished quilting the one that I was having so many problems with last night.
    Fiddled and switched up a few things and then all of a sudden everything was working just fine.
    THANKS LADIES for your input to help me figure it out.
    And the more I was doing it, the more FUN I was having.
    Just need to keep doing enough FMQ regularly, to keep in the swing of it.
    Even got started hand sewing the binding.

    I mailed my MB to Miss July, today! (not quite the earlybird that MiraB is!)


    DDamsel ... Sew Good to SEE you around these parts! Would you please have a chat with that postie so you can get JanRN's MB!

    JanieW
    ... Also Sew Good to see you! Yes, extreme heat here again, and looks like it's with us for the rest of the week! Were you Stampeding, last week? I watched it every chance I got and kept thinking of you! Still lots of time for you to change your mind on the SYO blocks! I had no clue what Pork Adobo was ... found a recipe and looks delicious!

    DublB
    ... Happy Rain!

    GGal ... Enjoy DHDGD+BF! Though I know what you mean as to how visitors affect us, when we are used to being on our own. You are SO right ... I know this group has had such a positive influence on my quilting. And a great place to go when I need to send an SOS (like last night!) I know I am truly blessed with all my FWS and PC friends!

    Anael .. yea for your bike! Did you take your camera? Do you ride around your town? Are there trails? Out into the countryside? Have FUN, and be safe!

    JeanieG .. oh I can relate all too well about that. BEfore borders, I have such a terrible time of visualizing fabrics made into something. Unfortunately, I do not always see the wrong mixes in the early stages with a few blocks made and often not, until it's all together. Wish I could have that "eye" that some have! Maybe you should show it to all of us, and maybe someone would have an idea as to how to "save" it? Great news that you're soon going to see some action!

    JanRN and MiraB ... what a wonderful block! And even with the star theme continued right thru all the fabrics.

    CarrieM ... OUCH! I don;t like hearing that you're injured now too.

    MiraB ... Art was such a disaster for me in elementary school, so I didn't take it in High School. Looks like you had a more than productive day!

    Good Night Ladies!!!!!!

    Mirabelle, you're not a lost cause to the quilting world so you can quilt your food

    QuiltE, I'm out into the countryside. No fun to ride around the village. I only do that when I have to run errands

    Jeanie, pictures please Maybe we can help you picking a border. Great news the contractor is starting soon. It's about time!!

    Carrie, take care!

    Jan and Mirabelle, beautiful block! Of course I've seen it before

    Update on Bram: he will have surgery but no idea when. So not much has changed there except the doctors agreed it's time to have it done.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Like Honchey, I love this time of this month when we see all of the creative, beautiful blocks.
    Jan and DD....such nice blocks to add to your quilt. I have to take a picture and get Anael's approval and mine will go in the mail this week so ......won't be the last to get hers like I did last month.
    QuiltE...how nice that FMQing is starting to feel natural. I'm looking forward to seeing how it all develops.
    Carrie...sorry about your shoulder but glad that PT will help it. I have missed seeing what you've been working on.
    Anael...how big of a village do you live in? Is your son in a more metropolitan city? I'm glad that Bram is gaining size and strength so he can have the necessary surgery.
    Dubib...enjoy the rain. It makes everything smell so fresh. Any news on the house?
    Jeanie...borders can be such foolers sometimes and the right one makes such a difference. Horray for hammers! Can't wait to see the completed redo. You are taking pictures I hope.
    Mirabelle..... What are the wild goosey blocks going to become or are you just doing mindless sewing? Blue and cream will make a beautiful quilt for your DH.
    i worked on my Ocean Waves yesterday and discovered that I had made the center square 1/4 inch too small on a few of them. Reverse sewing! No wonder it wasn't going together like it should. I have enough blocks done to see how it will go together and I really like it. It's just tedious with all the HST's. Thangles really help and thanks to you guys, I can now make my own with news print. I'll do more of them today until I get tired of them and then pick up something else. Another hot and humid day so I'll be close to a fan. Have a good one everyone!

    D_D--I thought I would send your July MB early since it was done and you hadn't got your June one yet. Hopefully Jan's will show up soon and you will get 2 this month.

    I can't remember the name of the block I made for D_D. I didn't write it down when I made it and now can't find it.

    Ggal--since I haven't been able to show anything new, you'll have to share some pictures with us of your project progress.

    Off to the clubhouse....

    D_D great job of matching that Carrie did! Love it.

    That dang Farmer's Scraps is hiding from me, Again! Found part of it but there's another tub still to be found. Wonder if it is sign I am suppose to do other quilts first? Labeling all the tubs with a paper inside the tub, so I can look up and see 'what' it is, instead of guessing what it is inside the tub. Heavy tubs on the bottom, or on the floor. QR is comin' around to being 'organized' . Wow. Don't know how long it will last! LOL!!

    It must be the heat ... I posted, I swear I posted ............... I was #4987 as I commented there were 12 to go.

    Here I go again!


    Anael ... how nice you can get out of town and run wild in the open! Hope you have a large saddlebag for trips to your LQS. Best wishes to Bram whenever the time comes for his surgery. All the growing and strengthening he has done will have him better prepared. You really should show us a pic of your wheels!

    DDamsel and CarrieM ... Great addition, and I am intrigued as to how you will put them all together! id you hav a pep talk with that postrie about JanRN's MB. Now run to your mailbox ISO it today!

    GGal ... yes feeling natural, and then there are the natural hiccups that help to keep me humble!!!

    Honchey ... Oh dear ... you might miss the 5000 party! Happy packing ... and travel safely!!

    QNSue ... instead of the labels on the inside of the tub, I label with painters tape on the outside, so I can see what is in there.

    Mine tubs are see-though tubs...except my eye sight is not what it used to be, therefore, I print extra large sized letters on the paper inside the tub, QuiltE.

    QNS - They also make a marker called Expo Vis-a-Vis that is a wet erase marker. It marks great on the plastic tubs and stays on until you wipe with a wet rag. I have been marking all my tubs with this marker, that way when I want to reuse them I just wash the writing off.

    Thanks, JeanieG, I will need to look for that product.

    Lost is found again; Triangular squares and Farmer's scraps are in separate tubs and marked. I have tubs left over and room to 'spare' for more FART trips! LOL. My part of the quilt room is in shape now and I am no longer bent out of shape!! Now to whip dh side into shape after tomorrow.

    Good news; Dh took his mower in for repair without my help,and it only cost half as much as they quoted him. They mowed the hay field behind us and we have a view again and wind blowing through better!! And GardenGal, I have found a number of blocks, it filled up the box and its ready to ship when I can. Probably when I ship the MB for July.

    OK for those that asked, here is the finished 2nd Pony Club Quilt (no ponies on this one), with the border that I just am not fond of. It is really cute material, but does not go with this quilt, I think it is just too dark. I have added a close up of the top with border.

    Whoops, the photo ended up sideways, oh well, you get the idea!

    My two cents worth says the border is 'too busy' and distracts from your wonderful blocks. Love the way you have put your blocks together, and moving on with a border...I have the border cut, but have not moved on with it like I do need too. So many things to sew, and not enough hours in the day...or I am being lazy may be.

    Jeanie, I think you're right about the border being too dark. I would do a very small red border after the white and a broader blue one instead of your nice dark fabric.

    GG, my village has about 30.000 inhabitants. My DS is living in a town twice as big as where I'm living.

    QE, the LQS is too far away to go there by bike. I do have nice saddlebags but not for fabric I will take a picture of my new wheels Not now as it's getting dark here.

    QNS, congrats on finding your lost items again! Did you find things you didn't miss? I always come across things I didn't know I had

    DD, beautiful block! It goes very well with the others!

    My killer kitty lost weight again. Now she's on recovery food to see if she's gaining some. She's on the edge of being underweight.
    Some people shouldn't be allowed to have pets My neighbours have a dog, they're screaming to the poor dog all day........go away, come here, sit down, go away.........I think he will need psychiatric care very soon! ! !

    Jeanie--pretty quilt. I agree with Anael that a medium blue would be a good outer border (something like the 3rd one down in your close up picture). Did you go with blue on your horsey PC quilt? If so you could also use a medium green for something different on this one.
