    CarrieM ... this Spike is a stand alone as I am hoping to have it finished for the display. Though I am thinking of using the yellow as my constant background. Sure wish I knew exactly how much fabric is needed, so I don't start sweating about it later.

    GrannyQ and OkSGlad ... another great block, to add to the collection!

    GrannyQ ... The lavender is so pretty on the black ... now to add a lavender top underneath?

    MiraB ... my goodness, you have more eye candy for us! So how did you get the embroidery to match the border fabric? And who is the special person that will receive this one?

    And me? ... hoping to get out of the office early today ... and get at my latest project!

    GardenGal, that is an interesting video; I kept thinking it was a man driving the tractor, but it made it sound like a woman in the video. Maybe he is a 'closet' quilter. Not all men want to admit to sewing or crocheting. Although mine does sew, quilt and crochets and admits it to everyone. Poor dh is now facing the fact over the next few months he will become toothless...and will be fitted with a denture in the next year. We can 'gum' things together..LOL!! I have had dentures since I was 21, so not too sympathetic to his woes.

    Thanks for the MB comments on GrannyQ's block--It's called Hand Weave and is in EQ7. Just got done mowing lawn-need to make a quick dinner--BLT's sound good.

    Our first farm, we had this one big big field ... and oh my, how long and boring those strips were, even with no GPS guidance. And I suspect this woman has even bigger fields she's covering. Great Multi-Tasking!

    This is definitely something for OKSGlad to consider!

    Here's a link to her blog ... I haven't spent a lot of time looking yet, but it does have more of her story
    http://chainstitchers.blogspot.ca/



    OKSGlad ... mmmm BLTs, my favourite sandwich (and with "real" tomatoes, not the winter "plastic" ones! And my most favourite salad, just happens to be a BLT Salad!

    Honchey ... yes, I sometimes wonder if MiraB has Santa's Elves employed in their off season! And in your Spike reading, did you see that we now have MiraBs'DD along with us?


    JillNJo ... good to "see" you ... do drop in again. Maybe you'd care to join us in ....

    (and drag OKSGlad along, too! ... me-thinks she needs an extra nudge!)

    YIkes, she is a quilter and farmer's wife, that can multi-task with the best of them. Beautiful results.

    Cut out my MB for --------today and looking at it. Maybe tomorrow I can work up the courage to do work on the new embroidery machine...maybe even try a test drive.

    What a fun video to watch--afraid it wouldn't fly very well here--I live in the hills with lots of small odd shaped fields. I'd be tripping over fence rows constantly-have enough trouble as it is.
    Hey another flimsy done. Blocks are 1 1/2". Binding will be the red as in the first border. Now onto the next one. Made 2x as many HST's so may use those--we'll see. A rail fence is calling too. Name:  HIB on point.jpg

    I just looked at the video of the tractor & handcrank....it reminded me of he time we lost electric for a couple of days and I pulled out my Singer 66, no handcrank but when you turned the handwheel it would spin so nicely and I would get 6 to 8 stitches...I did that for a couple of hours by candlelight until my arm gave out...I think I might just turn it into a handcrank...It does have the spoked hand wheel so it shouldn't be too hard...

    QuiltE, I did see the post where Mirab_DD ? signed up...I'm wondering now if Mirabelle will behave herself...

    just a note: 561 posts pushing 600??? 39 to go...

    Good to see everyone dropping in...Have all the MB's for July been posted??? It seems I can't keep track...
    I just took a photo of the tomatoes my sister gave me...I have to put them on my old, old cp to get them uploaded...I can't do it on the one I'm currently on...

    Nothing like a ripe Jersey tomato on fresh white bread with a big slather of Hellmanns Mayo on it...I had one the other day and I was in heaven!!!!

    I have the fabric & pattern for my August MB and now it has to be put together..I would talk more about it but if I do that, the person that's getting it might know it's for them...it's no fun knowing ahead of time ...is it?...ha ha ha...

    Just saw Ok's post...Oh what a beautiful mini or flimsy???? I saw the earlier one posted too....lot's of patience to do quilts that small..How big are they Ok? do you follow patterns or just wing it?

    I haven't recieved my July MB & I just now realized it. I've been so busy.
    I picked out my fabric for my Aug. MB yesterday & was able ta wash it taday. I haven't been able ta do much taday so was glad ta do that. I've had asthma all day. I put 'em in a salad spinner w/soap. The salad spinner that I have has a draw string ta pull ta make it spin. I pull the string then press the li'le brake over & over ta wash 'em. Then I rinse 'em w/fresh water. Finally I take all the water out & spin 'em ta wring 'em out. Now they are hangin' ta dry. I do this for all my FQ's. As long as I don't walk around I don't cough.

    Ok, that is another wonderful mini quilt. And I love, love, love the BLTs, only skip the lettuce part. One slice of our home grown tomato in the center of the slice of bread, add the two or three strips of bacon, top with another slice of bread and enjoy to the last bite. Then grab the second one and enjoy it also. It does not need Mayo or lettuce, pure and good.

    Enjoy your winnings from Bingo, Honchey. Have a fun day with the winnings. Hope you can get on this site with windows eight; when I got mine, they told me, load windows seven only; but that's been a year, so hoping it works just fine for you.

    For those that like BLTs, this is a great recipe to have during the summer months. It is one I got from my "Pampered Chef Lady" and that we made at a party I had a few years back.

    BLT Ranch Salad Pizza

    Ingredients:
    1pkg Pillsbury Big and Flaky Crescent Rolls (10.1oz)
    2-3c thinly sliced iceburg lettuce
    2 plum tomatoes
    1pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
    1/2c ranch salad dressing
    1 garlic clove, pressed
    1c shredded cheddar cheese
    1/4c sliced olives (optional)
    1/4c chopped red onion
    6-8 slices of bacon, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled

    Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 375. Unroll crescent rolls to within 1 inch of edge of lightly floured bar pan (pressing together to make a big rectangle). Bake 15-18 min until golden brown. Remove from oven; cool completely.

    2. Slice lettuce; seed/dice tomatoes. In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, ranch salad dressing, and garlic (pressed)...mix well and spread over cooled crust. Cut into squares before putting toppings on. Top pizza with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.

    Bev, I feel bad that you're not felling well...I don't have asthma..I do have allergies and my eyes swell up so they look like peaches and they leak!!!! I always wanted a salad spinner that has a drawstring and haven't been able to find one...

    Take whatever time you need to get better...The MB will get done when it gets done...take care of yourself...and ...don't walk around!!!

    Yes I got mine at Walmart. I got the first one in Brady, but it was months till the Walmart here in Midland had one. Hmm the Walmart that is further from me might have had one, but I hardly ever go there.

    Here are several Salad Spinners but only one w/a draw string. The first one has the draw string like mine but the second one looks more lik mine. Mine isn't collapsible, but it seems ta me that might be an advantage. It'd be a nice way ta store it.

    Dublb, hope you get to feeling better in your new home. Carrie, that looks like a great recipe.

    Honchey, you can go on line to http://www.corningware.com and order it, and have to go anywhere. I get their emails and when sales happen. I can let you know when they go on sale. or help out in any way I can.

    QuiltE the quilt patterns was part of the embroider design download, I just had to search for the fabric, took me about 3 hours on the computer but I found it, it must have been popular cause most online shops were sold out.

    Honchey no elves in this house just a missing husband and do I really have to behave myself

    GGal I love the little hand cranked sewing machine, wonder if that would work in my car oh no I have to deal with idiots on the highway..

    Oksewglad another beautiful mini, so sweet

    Anael I am still thinking about the 50 stars and my thinking is leaning towards 9 inch blocks, just leaning and thinking, leaning and thinking

    I have just got home from spending the morning with DD, we went clothes shopping and getting "stuff" for our retreat, had a coffee in a lovely café. But now I am off to the sewing room, lots to do...

    OKSGlad ... I reeeeeeeeeally like this one! The border fabric goes so well with the innards! Is this and the next one, also for the hospital fundraiser?

    Honchey ... I've had minimal desire for an old machine, as I don't know enough about them. This handcrank has got me intrigued, so will have to watch and see if I ever find one! As for MiraB ... do you think it;s possible? I think they are partners in crime! Poor dear you are tired ... you were at 5610 .... with 390 to go!

    CarrieM ... I have the same PC recipe and of course, couldn't leave it alone. For mine I mix mayo and cream cheese, with some garlic and other seasonings to taste. Spread it over the crust. Then top with whatever chopped/sliced veggies ... mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, celery, carrots, peppers etc. Top with shredded cheddar. Cover with plastic wrap. I usually use the round pizza pans and so stack them one on top of the other in the frig. Best made a few hours ahead ... or even up to 24 hrs, as it lets the flavours meld. Take from frig and cut into bite size pieces of hors d'oeuvres or larger pieces if it's as a meal. It always seems to be a hit, though many kind of look at it strange when they first see it. I call it Bugs Bunny Pizza!

    MiraB ... you did well to find fabric to coordinate so well with your embroidery work. Not just for this latest, but all the ones you do ... I still am in awe of NOT Marjen! Looks like you and DD had a grand day together. HOpe you both had success with the clothes shopping, and were able to help the economy. I'm really looking forward to getting to know her a little more too!

    And now ....... I am going to bed!
    Good Night Ladies!

    Anael I just sent you an e-mail with my August MB for your approval. I almost forgot but you better approve it before it arrives at its destination otherwise I am in big trouble....

    QuiltE when DH is at work and I can't sleep I am on the computer searching for just the right fabric for a project, sometimes I find it straight away and sometimes I don't, and sometimes projects fall by the wayside because the RIGHT fabric can't be found and now I am off to bed, it is very late and my eyes can't focus anymore.
