    Carrie, saw on the 50 Fab Stars thread that you're going to start in January. Yay--you can bring up the rear with Anael & I. Be warned--these blocks are very addictive. I love how easy they go together. Hardest part is getting the colors how I want them. I've been working on these stars since the S16 is dead. I take it tomorrow so hope I'll know then how long they'll have it.

    Got the thumbs up from Anael on the MB so went to the post office this am.

    Just letting you know that the SYE blocks print out different measrements...some off as much as 1/4" in height...

    Hi All ... back for a bit, so am checking in!

    Set up went well .... some hitches, when we got there to discover some layout and backdrop changes we did not know about in advance. Nothing insurmountable ... just took a little more time and some creative thinking to overcome. Quite pleased with how both displays came together ... and amazingly, we got the set up done in a little better time, than some years. Exceptional weather, has brought on the crowds to higher than norm for opening weekend.

    Yes ... we used ALL the quilts I took!!
    The 3 Out to Pastures ... the 2 Dairy Goodness' from last year ... the Spiker oversized hexie (same fabric as one DG). Have a few pics, but have not looked at them yet ... and when I do, will try to post them here for you.

    Anael ... what a good looking three-some! And then a cute 3-some of bunnies!

    JanRN ... for you and your S16 ... let's hope that they can get her back purrrrrring while you are doing a little FART while waiting, and then you can come home with enthusiasm to get at it! Maybe you can play on their store demo machine to test out how to use the rulers? I was impressed with them and saw how smooth edges you could get while doing straight line and curves as well. Thank goodness there is another "hack and whacker" (see Spike thread for the rest of the story!)

    JeanieG ...... wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! cupboards!!!!!!!!! Are you starting to load them up? Or waiting for the countertops to be installed? Soon, it'll all be done and over! Great job on your BB hanging! great idea to include some pony fabrics as a reminder of how the background story to the BBs!!

    QNSue ... sorry for your humpty dumpty!! Please do not self-diagnose, and go to the Dr. or at the least, take heed from your PC Doctors. You need to get your knee better, to stay mobile, for the long term. What a nice start on your Irish Mist. I'm so happy for you that they are getting you in for the cataract surgery so soon. Just remember that you MUST do EVERYTHING the Doctors tell you from now until after surgery, to have the best results. PLEASE ... no shortcuts, or I think I will do this approach to things ... they really do know what is best. PLEASE?

    I had bilateral cataracts and was blind for four months (with an obvious, no driving allowed). Caused, as a side effect to the treatment of my other eye issues, and it all progressed, quickly within 1-1/2yrs to the full blown cataracts. The implants were done 12 yrs ago, 3 wks apart. I still praise those two specialists, for giving me my eyesight back, and will jump thru any hoops they want me to, to keep it there ... meaning appointments about every 6 wks for ongoing monitoring/management. One time post-surgery, I commented to the one that I had great confidence in him (though I was honestly scared stiff, particularly for the first surgery) ... he said, "I didn't have confidence your eyes would let me." And then I went OMG, all those disclaimers were not CYA, but he was outright SERIOUS. I still do the OMG wonderment, many times over.

    MiraB ... beautiful eye candy with your new fabrics and a Sweet Raggedy Ann/Andy! Oh how I wish I only wne tot he eye Dr. yearly .... about every 6 wks!

    Honchey ... laughing here! So you'll let Anael choose, and let her be blamed!!!

    DDamsel ... are you lonely for your little ones? I'm like you ... am terrible at reading patterns, and too often, just look at the pics to figure it out.

    DublB ... inch by inch, and the move will get done. Good that you are allowing some sewing breaks ... and have a retreat planned. A nice reward for the moving work?

    CarrieM ... your PC is going to be great!! Any more work on your "heritage" quilt?

    GGal ... a tough few days for you, though I am ever-so-glad that you will be with your DD, and not going solo on this. Maybe it's good that your son's quilt did not get done in time ... so it is not tied to him receiving it with his father's death? Better it be during happier times, and linked with yourself.

    JanieW and OKSGlad ... oh I do like that block! And what a great grouping this is building. (though, me-thinks those cows are on a bit of a tilt!

    JeanieG and MiraB ... ooooooooh, so pretty!


    And now back to reality ... I treated myself to the QB, before I started into my "work" .... laundry, empty truck, start the re-fill items. And try to figure out some new and creative picnic basket takes!

    If I can swing it .... maybe some sewing? a September MB takes priority .... though I might get some hexies cut out, for some take-with work, as there just might be some fill-in opportunities!

    Til Later ............

    I mailed my Aug MB today. I got the next row of the airplane quilt quilted and the last row sewn on...might be able to quilt that tomorrow. I also was able to get my Sept MB all done.

    QE--I have some white muslin here but it is is the wrong color to match those with the embroidery in the quilt, so I need to pick some up Wednesday when I work. Then DD will get started on the embroidery. There is a big guild quilt show in Sept so most of the LA'ers are going to be pretty busy for the next month...I figure if we can get the last block done between now and the end of Sept, that gives me time to see some samples of some quilter's work to decide who I want to do it. Any suggestions on choosing a LA'er??

    QNS--looks like you're making some good progress on your TM/IM.

    Hey ya'll! I had a good time taday. My apprentice & her baby were here taday. That cute li'le boy ran all over this house & really wore himself out!! I kinda think o' him as another DGSon. My apprentice just loved my new house & it's retro look.
    On Sat evenin' I printed up some PC blocks on freezer paper. (DH had the printer out & I wanted ta git it done before he put it back inta his "office". (That room is as bad as my sewin' room.) It has got me thinkin' PC again. Yesterday I bought a bin just for my PC fabrics. I can't find anything in the comforter bag that they are stored in now. Besides the zipper broke a looooong time ago & it's a big pain ta deal with. So I"m gonna play w/fabric tanight.

    OKSGlad and MrOKSG ... CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!! I am truly humbled at your never-ending achievements, and am honoured to have come to know you a little. What a great pic of two 4-H "lovebirds" with an incredible story of accomplishments!!!

    CarrieM ... Great progress! Ask around about your LA'er. Get references and hear the personal reports. What you see may be incredible, but can s/he do it repeatedly? And be sure to see that the backside, is as good looking as the front. How creative can s/he be? Is this person reliable, and one you can trust with your valuable quilt? Does s/he meet the completion date given when receiving your flimsy? Perhaps you already know some thru your LQS where you work?

    QuiltE - gosh I would love to come and read all that stuff and see it in person. What a marvelous display, I'm sure many people will get a lot out of it!

    The email you sent me did not have the "attachment"! You have many more people on your list than I do!!! Guess I missed some along the way. I get my Quilting Board threads in digest format, and I find that sometimes it starts a few messages down from where I left off reading, so I miss some of the threads.

    QuiltE, great displays. I would love to see it in person. I didn't grow up on a farm but all my schoolfriends came from farmers families.

    Jeanie, beautiful blocks, your quilt is going to be gorgeous!

    OK, I just now read your story and saw the picture. Thanks so much for sharing, what a great story! We don't know 4-H here but from what I read it's great teaching young kids all kind of things, keeps them from doing bad stuff - hopefully!

    QE, great pics and the display must be so informative. I, too, would love to see it in person and read all the info. Your quilts look so pretty and and add so much color and interest. I especially like the cow on the cow quilt.

    Ooh, Jeanie, those look so nice together. What a talented group we are LOL she says humbly!

    Anael, love the pillow (although I'm not one for bugs!)

    QE--thanks for sharing pictures of your display...it looks great! How many are on your "committee" to set up/tear down?

    Jeanie--your MBs are coming together nicely.

    Anael--very cute pillow for Mick

    Well I am lost on where you saw the picture of OK at the Fair...will someone share? I thought maybe I missed a post on this thread, but couldn't find it. Thanks in advance.

    Honchey ... The butter dishes are a combined effort with my partner in this effort. Mine are the pink depression glass, china, blue pottery to the left, pressed glass to its right, front centre pressed glass. I would SO like to get one of the cow or chicken butter dishes. I saw a few this spring, but wasn't convinced they were old, rather repros!!

    JeanieG .. Oh my ... I did it again, no attachment! Just dispatched it to you. I've noticed the same thing, with the auto-notice links. Great group shot ... coming together nicely.

    Anael, JeanieG, JanRN and all others!! ... You know, you could come and see it IRL!!

    JanRN ... and that's not so impossible for you. Now if you and MrJanRN would hop in that car of yours, we're not such a long drive away from you!!!! We had a family in the display the other day from Pittsburgh, who had done just that, just to come and see a bit of Canada. And think of all the LQS' you could visit along the way!!!!! You picked well in spotting that cow ... it's a true-type, meaning that it is done perfectly to scale. They used to be given to 4-H'ers who topped their clubs each year. No, not mine, belongs to my colleague. We saw one auctioned this spring for over $500, so every time I go near it, I get nervous!

    Anael ... perfect backing for Mick's cushion and glad to have been part of this caper! Now, we need to see a pic of Mick with it!

    CarrieM ... just the two of us for all of the set up and take down for both the butter and the display for the cattle. We've done it together for quite a few yrs now, so work well together, and have somewhat of a system worked out to help things go pretty smoothly. For the other display, we have 4 producers that come in daily to help "man" the display, talk to consumers, and do commentary during milking time (twice daily) with a question and answer period. For Mr+MrsOK, check your email.

    Today ... some catch up and get ready for another stint ... wonder? could I sneak in some stitching?
    Last night cut out the hexies to make while away (maybe?), for the facing of this runner that's been in holding pattern for sometime. I have the small one quilted, and the facing almost all stitched on. The white is NOT white ... a light mauve floral, medium sized print.

    Here's the back wall of signs, from left to right, for those wondering what it says.
    The signs in the display are labels, of what things are.

    QuiltE another beautiful display, great achievement for you and your partner..

    JeanieG your blocks look so good together, another beautiful quilt in the making.

    Anael Mick's pillow is wonderful, I am sure he will love using it.

    Finished the binding on Raggedy tonight, will post a pic tomorrow, now it is goodnight from me

    Totally weird ... the photos showed when I posted them, and when I came back now, it only shows the attachment. They are opening for me ...... will they open for the rest of you? Totally weird ... I replied to my original post ... and now the pics are showing, so I will leave them here. More weirdness, when I added this comment, and went back, they went back to attachments. And yet .......... all have been posted the same as the quilt pics from last night. Straaaaaaaange!

    Thanks MiraB ... I think the quilts did the job they were meant to do, to soften and warm the display from the cold hard look of the antiques just sitting here and there. And without it becoming a quilt show! We had a few placements where we felt it was looking like a quilt show, and quickly rearranged that! Looks like you will be able to take Raggedy with you to your group this week! You MUST be their most prolific quilter!
