    QuiltE...I was beginning to think we would have to end the possee out after you when it was silent for so long after Christmas. I'm glad you got your computer problems fixed and have had time to putter in your sewing room. Sounds like you're into the fun stuff.
    Jan...I do have other blocks picked out to use but I wish I had measured them that last time before I sewed them! Glad you got your borders figured out before Froggy paid a visit! We got another dusting of snow over the past couple of days but nothing like you've gotten. Glad you didn't lose your electricity.
    Might get a little sewing in today but I'm thinking my DH might like to take a drive today. He needs to get out of the house!

    Oh GGal ... no, not figured out or fixed. It just seemed it was very very bad and now it seems to be behaving! Now we'll probably jinx it all for discussing it! I know it's on it's last legs and needs replacing. The last time I had it into the techie, he said, next time to just get a new one. The good part will be that I will go all the way and get a colour printer when I bite the bullet!

    Thanks for the Kimino pattern QuiltE...I needed a simple pattern other than rubbing the one I gave to DH 42 yrs ago...Yeah, I know it's old, worn out but it fits me perfectly!!!

    BBblock I wanted to do is not working out well for me and I need to make adjustments or reconfigure it...sometimes I wish I didn't think of creating something that looks good in my mind but is way beyond my ability to do accomplish...

    Jan, are you still digging out from the all the snow??? We didn't get any snow just rain & high winds this last go round...it's still very windy..
    Progress on my PC has been very slow...I can't seem to find that perfect sashing...maybe I'll find the perfect charcoal in NC...we're leaving on Monday...I still have so much to do....

    I guarantee you, it was simple Honchey ... you could do a Mr and Mrs set!
    I was thinking this morning that it'd be nice too, with some cotton fabric lightly quilted to a flannelette, then make the kimono. Border and Bind it up, for a nice reversable one. The quilted fabric would give it a little more substance, but not a lot of bulk.

    Whadya think? I won't be doing it for awhile, so I'll let one of you try it out and let me know!

    Honchey, Oh poor you and your your BB! Though I know you are talented and have all the abilities to do what you want to do.

    After my faux-pas last night, I was laughing at my stoooopidity!
    I will give an insight about my BBs ... simplistic but with significance.
    I hope everyone thinks it's appropriate when they get them.
    'Nuff said, for now!

    Now, QuiltE, after all those 'red' ribbons that's blue stateside, we expect you will gift us with perfect bonus blocks...just remember yours truly here, has never won a ribbon, so feel free to throw it out or whatever....mine have all been made to 'gift' them to others and have kept several for ourselves. More for the 3 kids to have 'discussion' about after we are both gone..who gets what??

    Our snow is all going away, and its warming all the way up to 35 degrees today..wow. Heat wave.

    BBs ... just started reading at post #391, as I knew there'd been some BB discussions earlier ... and finally found them! And now you all have me drooling over those cookie recipes!!

    I won't comment on EVERYTHING from the last 140 posts, but a few things ...

    JanieW ... post #420 ... that is indeed my Snowman that crashed on my floor. Good super-sleuthing you did! Mine was oooold and I miss him.

    Was laughing when I saw all the condolences and was waiting for someone to have a wake for him. Granted there were cookies ........

    DublB ... post #455 ... I have the same recipe, called Hello Dollies, though I seldom make it as is. Lots of variations in the layered ingredients depending on what's in my cupboard and what strikes my fancy. One thing I do tend to do ... cut maraschino cherries in 1/2, and place on top of the coconut, so they'd be in the middle of each square. Then top with the condensed milk. Once cut, they make a pretty presentation on the cookie plates. Usually do 1/2 red 1/2 green for variety!

    JeanieG ... post #458 ... I'm much like you, and try to pre-fab recipes when I can. I don't have a lot of space, so anything to minimize the clutter, mess and ongoing dishes we create when baking/cooking, I'm all for! Have you tried the "recipes in a jar"? You can mix up your dry ingredients long in advance, and then just like a cake mix, the rest happens when the time comes. Or another thing I do, when measuring ingredients, I'll measure for more than one at a time. Works good for muffins, cookies, fruit loaves, etc. I keep the dry mix in my baking drawer and then minimal to do when the time comes. Another short cut ... make up the cookie batter, and make the cookie drop balls then freeze on the cookie sheet. Store in a plastic bag or tupperware. When baking time comes, just set on the cookie sheet and bake from frozen.

    DDamsel ... post #471 ... You got my attention with almond extract!! I'm thinking these are bar cookies, that you flatten the dough on the cookie sheet? And oooooooh for your PC Block display. Found your lace yet?

    Oh dear! you just put a lot of pressure on me, QNSue!!
    ... I hope mine are not a disappointment to you and all.
    As I said, simplistic and significance is what I'm working on.
    I'll explain it all later ... but for now, SURPRISE!

    And our weather forecasts show that in the next few days that we are going down to -18C = 0F!!!

    Senility has set in for sure!
    I found the post (#475) where CarrieM verified the BB participants.
    And I was sure there'd been a post summarizing the fabrics of each of those people.
    Can't find it!

    As for me ... no favourite colours ... I love them all!
    No specific fabric lines ... don't want to be prejudicial!
    And cream or white or off white or none of the above!!!
    I'm just looking forward to receiving 12 blocks for the memories and then to have some creative fun.

    Off now to look for some of the block grouping photos to refresh my memories of what each of you have been using, and get inspiration for my fabric choices.

    A quick note here today--still haven't caught up with the posts but I know you are all well :-)! SIL DS and four grands are at the Vikings Packers game in Twin Cities today. Excitement all around. That left some of us at home to bond doing chores. It will be later in the evening once FB fans get back from their 2 1/2 hour drive. Tomorrow morning A&H head back to Wisconsin.
    Last night A & I worked on GS's Tshirt quilt. Got the layout down and shirts cut. This will be Amy's first quilt at age 40! Maybe there's hope for her after all. Now to write up detailed instructions with an EQ diagram as a guide. Okay off to do that. Take care friends.

    Looks like the time had to be "right" ... and when DS/DGS "needed" a t-shirt quilt, she was ready to go into action!
    She'll leave knowing that you're only a phone call or email away when she sends up a smoke signal for SOS!
    We'll all be rooting her on ... and looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    ENJOY all, OKSGlad ... while you have them!

    Thanks QE--Here's the drive by post!!! You know I treasure them all dearly which is why I can deal with a mudroom like this after a successful morning of sledding--photo 1. Photo 2--so nice that layering is "in style". Photo 3--poor Bob the Snowman is slightly off balance by the whirlwind that just passed through.Name:  003.JPG

    Wonderful to have a mud room for all the coats, hats and boots!! As you all know, I grew up long ago, before mud room times!! Granddad and seven other kids with parents lived in a two room house growing up...our teenage years was with a five room house and a path out back!! Boots were back of the door and coats were in the bedrooms!!
    Yes, I think that snowman was hit by a tornado...of traffic. Oh, the memories that room could tell...

    Just catching up on the chatter, what I would give for some cool weather. We have Cyclone Freda sitting out in the Coral Sea at the moment and weather conditions are awful, it is dark and stormy and rainy here. It is 8am and I have to have the lights on in the house to be able to see anything.

    QuiltE I love you dressing gown, will definitely have to check out that website.

    I have spent the last 3 days cleaning out my scrap bins, got the go cutter in action and cut hundres of 2 1/2 inch squares, then dumped all my strings onto my table and started making QAYG blocks. I made 42 which is a good size for a lap quilt but still had a huge pile of strings so made another 42. Now I just need to sew them together and I will have 2 snuggle quilts ready. I had to put my embroidered quilt on the back burner as I ran out of the main embroidery thread and the shop doesn't reopen until the 14th

    Maybe I should bake cookies today, the only downside to that is I have to eat them and there goes my resolve to lose a few pounds

    It is 9.45pm New Years Eve here and I want to wish all of you a Happy and Prosperous New Year. The house is quiet, DH is not home until Wednesday and it has been raining all day here, we have had almost 5 inches of rain today

    Will catch up with you all in 2013

    OK...it's nice to hear from you. The towel is so cute and the mud room so full! Busy, busy, busy. Take a deep breath and enjoy the quiet. No one bothers you when you're bookkeeping I'll bet.
    Honchey...glad you found the fabric that you like for the BB. Did you see we have clues today and tomorrow for the mystery quilt? Safe travels.
    Mirabelle...I won't trade your weather. Hot and humid are not my liking. I know how to deal with snow! I worked with scraps yesterday so I didn't have to concentrate on what I was doing while I watched the last quarter of a football game. I have to press the strip sets today and cut to size to see how many more I need. I think I have just about enough. What size strips do you commonly use?
    Bonnie posted clue 7 today and the blocks are starting to take shape. Clue 8 tomorrow for the grand reveal. Guess what I want to do today? I'll see what happens. Corned beef on the stove so cooking is easy.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
    If I have it calculated, MiraB has already seen the New Year arrive!!

    And the rest of us still have several hours before the clock strikes.
    For me, I'll be long in bed ........ unless I "sew" the New Year in, making your BBs?

    What a grand year it's been ... and I'm looking forward to what 2013 brings.
    WHY? because each of YOU have been a vital part to this past year and I am sure you will continue to be in the New Year.

    All the Best of Blessings to
    EVERYONE ... for a year filled with many delights, surprises and much health and happiness!

    One of the benefits of being around the campfires here, have been the recipes we've shared.
    And they weren't all cookies!!

    If you're looking for something differentand easy to make .... try CarrieM's Carrot Casserole!!!
    I made it last night for supper, and I can see why it's a hit at the CarrieM household.

    I will confess, I did make a change ... I used more onions and added some mushrooms to the mix!!. Then put skinless boneless chicken breasts on the bottom of a flat baking dish and topped it off with the Carrot Casserole mixture. Made for a good filling one pot meal!

    Thanks CarrieM for sharing!! ... and I can see this will become a go-to for easy supper cooking while I stitch away.
    And too, for me, that means leftovers ... for more good eats on other sewing days!

    Happy New Year! ... again!

    Thanks to all of the PC possee for letting me ride along this year. You've held me accountable, pushed me to learn new skills, celebrated with me when appropriate, and let me into your lives to laugh, love, and cry with you all. I'm looking forward to what this next year will bring. More beautiful stitching to share with wonderful virtual friends.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
