    Carrie, such beautiful embroidery! Like QuiltE said, maybe they will change their minds?

    Mirabelle, thanks for all the pictures. I'm sorry you lost your Table Mat. Maybe it will find its way back to you!

    It was twin time today and I didn't forget the memory card

    Oh my Anael, Bram is catching up to Isa!

    Hope the placemat returns home, mirabelle.

    Must get back to Elise--it's her turn to sew today! Another stitcher in the making.

    Anael. schattige tweeling!!!

    Mirabelle here's hoping your table mat turns up. Thanks for posting all those pictures of the quilts. It must have been a blast to be there. Lots of talent for sure.

    Bev, Congrats on the new house . I hope you can get moved without any injuries.

    QuiltE, Have you been to get the mail yet???????

    OK I think it is so cool that you have a little GD to sew with you.

    Carriem, your fabric choices for the embroidery quilt are excellent. They go perfectly with the colours in the hand work. Good choices. I love those fabrics.

    I'm off to sew some more qayg on my orphans and then I have a date with my book.

    Happy Saturday all, Sunday for Mirabelle!

    Mirabelle - what wonderful quilters you have! Just marvelous!

    Anael - cute photos of Isa and Bram. Gosh they are getting so big!

    Dublb - please take care with the moving, how exciting to move to a new house.

    Here I am .... back from the post office with an addition to my MB family.

    Thank you DublB ... for finding time amidst your packing to move!
    Wonder where you got the fabric?
    (Had hoped for these pictures to be outside, for truer colours, but didn't want to wait til it was not raining ... yet again!)

    QE--Elise is just at the starting stage. Must be the 4-H er in me, but we learn about the parts of the machine and then start sewing on paper w/o thread--straight lines on notebook paper and then work up to curves and square corners. Next we just straight stitched with thread on 2 pieces of fabric so she could back stitch.--Can I make this into a quilt she asks? Emily is going to be working on Gpa's quilt later on. At this rate I'm going to have to get another machine! BIL took the Singer 99 (or 66) back with him to ND to continue reconditioning work on it.

    Biggest problem is Ilean came for a visit today. How do I politely ask her to leave? Maybe I will have to just yell-- I think I forgot to take drugs (Aleve) last night and this is the price. Can't sit for long so will move on.

    We posted at the same time QE--What a great friendship block? The blue looks familiar--it's in my block, too.

    Anael ... so funny ... I was right on the lief, and wasn't even trying !!

    JanieW ... looks like you have some Dutch roots along with Anael!!

    OKSGlad
    ... Maybe you are just too polite to Ilean? Just tell her to take a hike!!! Good training for Elise. I can't remember how I started sewing, but some of the early was sewing squares together. Two, then 2x2, then 2 sets of 4 and so on. We HAD TO press the seams open and heaven forbid if they did not match ... so I learned all about reverse stitching. Not too encouraging as a little one. And then eventually the joined pieces were big enough for a dolly blanket. Aprons were another of Mom's way of teaching us to sew with miles of store bought bias binding on the edges. Your DGDs are SO lucky to have you to help them learn. And yes ... looks like you will need a 3rd machine so you and the 2DGDs can all sew at the same time! Look forward to seeing some pics of the girls working away!

    Lovely block Dublb made for you QuiltE! Your quilt will be like spring when ready, at least with these blocks! I love them!

    I do remember how I started sewing. My mom used to buy cheap fabric on the market and she told me to just cut it and make a skirt with her sewing machine. I was 9 at that time I don't remember having learned reverse stitching though but I guess I must have

    Anael I think Bram is saying "look at me, look at me I'm so big and strong", beautiful photos as always, makes my heart sing with joy to see them.

    QuiltE another beautiful block, they all look so good together..

    I placed the runner and mat on the stage and within an hour had noticed it wasn't there, so it went missing after only a couple of clubs had been on the stage showing their quilts. We asked everyone to look for it but nobody came forward. It certainly left me feeling very deflated.. I have woken this morning feeling as if every bone in my body is aching and a nasty cough so hoping I am not coming down with the flu.. Time for a hot shower..

    Bram needs to be big and strong as his surgery is coming Tuesday! I hope he will come out of it ok.

    It's late here (11.50 pm) so I'm calling it a day. Just need to feed KK (or PP ) and cu all tomorrow!
    Hope you're feeling well again soon Mirabelle.

    Karen--it is really too bad someone would take your placemat.

    Bev--hope you were able to make good progress and can take a little break each day. Great MB for QE!

    QE--your MBs are pretty all together. I am making the embroidered quilt *for my MIL*...she will enjoy it and when she is gone then it will go to one of her daughters. I know she will be thrilled when the blocks are made into the quilt. She hated for them to just be sitting in a box. I personally don't have a good place to display a quilt like this so it is ok.

    Anael--cute pictures of the twins. They are looking so healthy. Praying for Bram's surgery.

    I don't have any memories of my mom or grandma teaching me to sew. I taught myself shortly after we were married. My dad bought me my first machine (a Kenmore) for my 18th birthday (at my request) and then I found an old Singer in a cabinet at a garage sale for $25. I wanted some long skirts and couldn't find them in the store so figured out how to make them. I mostly used the Singer when sewing straight stitches, Kenmore for button holes and zig-zag. I made lots of dresses (some nursing), jumpers and skirts for myself and our girls. Never did master zippers so altered patterns to put in buttons or elastic.

    Jeanie, yes it's for his hernia.

    I made the Lemon Squares this morning but now I used half lemon juice and half orange juice. It's wonderful but I should have used corn starch!!

    We had bad weather yesterday and last night and look what happened

    8 pages since Thursday evening....I won't even try to comment on everything.
    Anael...what cute pictures if your family! I think Bram is catching up with Isa. Thanks for the country picture.
    Mirabelle....what a shame you lost part of a set at the show. Those quilts are so inspiring. Such a wide range if skills. I like the fabric you acquired while at your DDs but I'm a little surprised that it is so LOUD. It will be fun to see how you out it together. I hope you are feeling better.
    Lemon bars...I don't bake...oven broken...but they do sound good.
    Carrie....when we do good things for others, they often come back to us in unexpected ways. That quilt will be an unexpected blessing for you in ways you least expect.
    QNS....it sounds like you are trying to go at full speed again. Remember to listen to your body and get the rest it still needs. I got the box and it had some fabric that is perfect for a project my friend is doing! She was so happy to get it. Thanks!
    Jeanie....happy for the new GGD. My youngest DD is named Hannah. Very nice MB too.
    Dubib...I've been thinking if you moving. A lot of years of belongings to sort through and memories to relive. I hope it is all going well for you and yours.
    Janie...what are you doing with your QAYG project?
    QuiltE....your MB quilt is growing so nice! You would think someone planned it!
    the shop hop was a little disappointing but interesting. Most of the shops had kits, FQs and a few notions. There wasn't a lot of room to navigate in the booths so it was a quick walk through. I did find a ruler that makes curves. I saw this quilt in the wall made with 2 inch leaves and was so intrigued by it I couldn't resist. I'm certain I will use this one. I also won a pattern book at the game stop and the experience of sharing it with friends made it all worth while. We did stop at another shop on the way home and fell in love with it. I will visit there again. Probably little quilting today...DGGS has a birthday party this afternoon...but I will putter a little. Have a great day everyone!

    Anael, the SEW Grands are growing so fast! Best of luck with Bram today. I am happy , GG, that the fabric will be loved and used. OKkkksewGlad has plans for hers as well, I would imgaine. My MB should have arrived...no word on it yet.

    Plan on finishing the binding on Pansy Passion throw today; and after finishing dishes will go get my lug of peaches to work up today. And my fuel cardl updated so on next fill up I will get 62 cents per gallon off the price of fill up....unless I wait through Wednesday, then I can get 92 cents a gallon off the price of a fill up....way too go!!

    Cool and comfortable weather today...celebrate the DAY!!

    MiraB ... What a horrible feeling to know "how" your runner and mat disappeared, and it seeming pretty evident as to "where". How sad ... and heartbreaking. Perhaps a hot shower, and a slow day of snoozing under a quilt would be a good plan for your body?

    Anael ... prayers for Bram on Tuesday and then a speedy recovery. Your plants look a little pooped. Perhaps they will straighten up with the sun and a dry day?

    CarrieM ... you can take a lot of pride in knowing you taught yourself! I saw a couple of quilts at an LQS last week similar to yours. Both newly embroidered pieces and using all pastel fabrics similar to what you have chosen. Patterns were for sale that had the embroidery as well as quilt instructions included. They were so lovely and reminded me of what my Mom had, so it makes it easy to visualize yours.

    Lemon Squares ... maybe a sign of not to mess with the recipe? Though, I am hoping someone will try the orange ones with just the frozen concentrate.

    GGal ... looks like the Hop wasn't too bad though! Sometimes they are better than others, and when they have to move everything to the site, it is limiting. Do tell, what is a "game stop"? The good news is, you won!!! Happy Birthday for DGGS ... have FUN!

    QNSue ... look forward to seeing your Pansies completed. Will make for a nice nap quilt for yourself!

    Today ... guess what I am going to do?
