    I'm still here, and there is only 6 days before retreat, tomorrow I had better get my butt into gear. I thought I was organised but 2 days with DD and other ideas are spinning around in my head.. Must stick to plan, must not deviate from plan, plan is good, plan will get quilt finished, do not start anything new..at least that is what I am telling myself tonight Good night

    QuiltE - here is a photo of my new sewing machine. It is a straight stitch only Brother 1500s that I picked up on Craigs List for $400.00. It is only a few years old. It is a mechanical machine, I love it and leave it set up for quilting. I am using my Baby Lock, that I had been using for quilting as my main piecing machine, and am putting the lightweight Brother in the motorhome for when we travel. I also have a Singer 503, that I bought in 1962. It is the only sewing machine I owned until I bought the little Brother four years ago when I started quilting again. Gads, since then I have bought the Baby Lock and this new Brother!


    mmmmmmmmmmm .... can't wait for the cake!!

    Great machine ... I don't know the Brother, but that one looks a lot like the Janome 1600P that is only straight stitch and it's known as a real work horse. The two of you are becoming a perfect quilting pair. Good for your for leaving your machines set up. I think that's the trick (when it's do-able), to be able to hop from one to the other without having to take the time to set up. I'm now leaving my old smaller machine set up all the time too ... great for that odd row of stitching (aka clothing repair jobs) in the midst of another project. Or when I want to join some batting scraps and not change the settings when I have them "just right"!!



    MiraB ... I wouldn't settle watching football, either! And then, after such an exciting day and night before ... I'm sure you are "thinking" lots too! And then to be running a mile-a-minute as you think and re-arrange your retreat plans! Yea, right ... convince us that you are sticking with the original one!!!



    Anael ... and how soon will you break from THE plan? Though I do see that you are almost ready to join Ode into one large piece! Once you start that, you will not want to stop, as you will get totally excited to see how it is coming together.

    It is always so much fun to catch up with all you're doing!

    I too am trying not to start something new until after the 1st of the year. SYE doesn't count since I started that already. I almost have the 2nd block done, then back to quilting a little at a time. PT says no more than 30mins before taking a break, then I have to get up and do a couple stretches/exercises before another 30mins. Since I tried sewing longer (like a couple afternoons in a row) and my shoulder flared up again, she doesn't want me sewing more than an hour a day. I keep coming up with excuses to stop the timer (you know like "cutting isn't sewing") LOL But still trying to be good. It has been really hot this week so that has helped to keep me out of the clubhouse some...the a/c has a hard time keeping up when it is over 90 plus the heat index.

    Anael ... A few more hours and MiraB should be wide awake ... and perhaps make the momentous post? So by the time I come back next week, I sense you will have an Ode Flimsy!!!

    CarrieM and MiraB ...There's a thread today about the Oliso iron and I was thinking of the two of you ... if you don't have it already, I am thinking it could be beneficial for your shoulders. I went thru quite a round with my shoulder for awhile and thanks to the chiro, got it back in good order. However, her suggestion had been to iron with my other hand. She agreed that would not work, as she knew how clutsy she would be herself!!! Thankfully her DSis is a quilter ... so she totally understood my "need" for quilting (and ironing). I know when my current iron dies, I'll be thinking pretty serious about buying one.

    Heck, maybe the two of you could get it on "Dr's Orders" ... and have it covered by insurance!



    Better
    still ........ let's wake up the ol' sleepyhead, MiraB!!!!!

    QuiltE, you listen to QNS and let MiraB sleep !!! Oh maybe it's daytime over there again already or almost. I'm not sure. It's 10.30 pm here now.

    Tomorrow I will finish the block I started today and maybe do another one. Have to run errands and having dinner at #2 son's. We exchange food I bring him red peppers and I get a meal LOL LOL.

    Hello Dublb--good to "see" you.

    I finished my 2nd SYE block today and also finished quilting the last row on the airplane quilt (finally)...now just need to add borders...only the propeller border will need quilting. I even was good and didn't sew more than the allowed hour.

    Mirabelle, I had some more coffee. I don't know if it helped
    I added some pictures to the Ode to my Mom thread. I thought I only had 1 block to go but I have to make 2. One applique and one pieced and applique. I should have done the applique blocks first.

    Marshmallows? Where? Who has them?

    Anael--I just had a few pieces left to add to the SYE block #2 and then joining the 6 sections. For quilting it was outlining 3 planes and then just 4 "x's" in the little blocks....sounds like a lot more than it really was.

    Today I hope to get the 1st border on...

    D_D--you may have had trouble pp'ing, but it turned out great. Thanks!! This block will hopefully help to prepare you a little for the SYE blocks.

    I spent most o' the day at the old house & am bushed! We packed & threw away a ton o' stuff. It's hard for me at throw away stuff. I'm emotionally bushed also! I have all my kids clothes in the attic. I was gonna donate 'em but they will all have ta be washed. No organization in Midland wants 'em unless they are washed. (I don't blame 'em either, They don' have washers & dryers.) We have decided ta just leave 'em there. Whoever gits the house can trash 'em. It would take us a couple o' days ta git 'em outta there.
    On another note I found my first stash! It was in my bedroom closet! Wow. I'm gonna love makin' quilts outta that stuff.
    PS I have just heard from a friend o' mine. She is gonna be in Midland tanight & we are gonna grill ribs for her & her DH.
