    Beautiful MB Carriem they all look great together.

    QNS made it to 6,000 wow,

    we are just home, decided at the last minute to drive an hour and a half to surprise DD and her new BF at lunch, best laid plans always go astray, I got lost and had to phone her and ask the directions to the restaurant but in the end we had a lovely lunch and her new beau is very charming

    I just wanted to to tell whomever sent me the August MB that it is still languishing in Canada Customs. It is Labour Day weekend here so no mail until Tuesday and I am leaving for a very much needed weeks' holiday Tuesday morning so even if it comes then, I'll be gone before the postie visits.

    I am sure the block will be waiting for me when I get back and I will post then. No worries on my end, just didn't want the sender to think I was ignoring you.

    Hope all are having a terrific weekend.

    Janie, enjoy your break, and I hope your MB is n your box when you get home. You can tell us then how much fun you had on your adventures.

    Anael, I am coming on a slow run, baby steps, to get some pie. It sounds so yummmy. Just eat another piece for me, it might get stale before I can get there!

    I posted another quilt on SYE site, that I made and was for a very special young lady on her sixth birthday, designed and drew all six horses just for her. Her adopted Mother bought all the fabric for the quilt. And the fringe.

    QNS, we will save you a piece of the pie

    The Ode to my Mom top is assembled, I will take a picture later today. I still have to find fabric for the borders. I don't know what color will be best. Will audition some colors and see what the top wants.
    It's a weird feeling not to have to sew blocks for my mom. But it's not finished yet......I have no idea how to quilt it. I don't want to ruin it and I don't want to send it to a LA'er. We do have a few here in The Netherlands

    QuiltE, did you notice I did stick to the plan? There's a first time for everything I had a hard time not wandering away from the blocks but I didn't. I'm proud of myself.......LOL LOL

    OMG that is one absolutely beautiful exquisite quilt top, I just can't stop looking at it, each time you look you see something different. But my favourite block is the one with the three stars and stem and leaves..

    Anael--as you posted the blocks I thought each one was really pretty, but seeing them all together...WOW! It is great!! Like Mirabelle, I see a different "favorite" each time I look.

    Gasp....Anael....your quilt is jaw dropping gorgeous!!!!!! What is the name of the pattern again? That would be one I would put in my bucket list. I love it. It is both colorful and creative. I'm sure you will figure out how and when to do the quilting. Your love will never ruin it!
    Friday night our refrigerator died in the 90 degree heat too! Saturday my DH went shopping for something that would fit in the space we have. Not a big kitchen designed when all of the appliances were smaller. He scored and arranged to have a new fridge delivered yesterday...got it at Lowes. It fits perfectly but seems to hold a lot more than the old one of the same size. When moving things around yesterday, I jammed my toe on the table leg...I'm always barefoot in the house...and I think I broke it. Fortunately it's the one next to my big toe so I can walk on the side of my foot and get around fairly good. I had planned to do up apples but I think a day in the sewing room is more in order. Maybe....

    Anael, that is the most awesome quilt ever!! Your colors are so pretty and each block is prettier than the last one--I couldn't pick a favorite either. I can't imagine doing something like that. Love it!!

    Great MBs again this month, ladies. And they're filling in a future quilt nicely.

    I just got caught up on the posts and apologize for lack of comments. I'm kind of back to work full-time and trying to decide if I'm going to keep doing it or go back to one day a week or just flat out retire. I'm so blessedly healthy for my age that I feel guilty not working. If I thought I was taking a job away from someone who needed it, I'd leave but when we have a job opening, no one wants it (pay in doctor's offices is much lower than that in clinics or hospitals). Lots of thinking to do. Any advice?? Finances don't play a part in the decision; it's entirely up to me and what I want to do.

    Hope everyone will have a great Labor Day. Maybe a picnic or a parade or time with family. Enjoy (and yes, Anael, get out those Sunday dishes!)

    Thank you ladies

    GG, it's from www.frommyhearttoyourhands.com and the pattern is called Ode to the 1930's A Sampler Quilt.
    It's still available.
    You're like me, always barefoot but I never broke anything. So will you be wearing shoes from now on?

    I saw Anael's quilt on her thread and yes I had the same reaction everyone else has had. Anael your quilt will never be finished because even when you do actually put that last stitch of binding on; you will revisit the quilt as you touch it and your mother's memory will be forever in your heart and soul.

    OK, thanks! You've said it so well.
    It would have been lovely to have a daughter myself but I don't. I do have a granddaughter and I want her to have this quilt once I'm gone. There won't be more grandkids so she will be the only granddaughter I'll ever have.

    SO SO purdy Aneal I really wonder if you could find someone to hand quilt it??? That would be amazing I think.
    but YOU are great at machine quilting! why are you worried about messing it up? your work would be FABULOUS!!! maybe it is just nerves.

    All of you have been busy, busy, busy and I have been busy, busy, busy with the GK and DS...Now I will be busy, busy, busy packing for the trip to NC... I have all my fabric together for several different projects, MB, SYE and another...I hope to make some progress on them...

    Anael, You quilt is beautiful and seeing all the blocks you've been showing for it together is breathtaking...I kid you not!!!

    Jan, You're still young & healthy enough to do what you feel is best for you..I gave up my hours and am now called in when needed and I happen to like it that way...I just let them know when I'll be unavailable and they work their time off around it....and if I ever get to move to DE..the Gallery there would like me to work for them occasionally also...

    GGal,Ouch!!! toes hurt!! tape the big toe to the injured one..it helps to stabilize it...

    QNS... What a cute quilt & photo of you & DH...at first I couldn't see the window

    Carrie...MB blocks look great together..what color sashing will you use???

    I'm off to get the Spike thread together for posting at midnight tonight so I can pack my CP..I did get a new one & Windows 8 is not my friend right now...
    Have a good holiday everyone and will check in later...H.

    Ggal--Sorry to hear about the toe! Hope you are getting lots of sewing in while resting.

    Jan--I can't help you much having never worked full time outside the home. I would say maybe cutting back to 1 day a week would keep you busy (and help pay for those FARTS). On the other days you can make friends with S-16 (once she's running again).

    Honchey--Have a great trip and get lots of sewing in. I haven't decided on sashing for my MBs yet, but I have been thinking about it....

    Oh My Anael, there are not words to express how wonderful that quilt is. It is so interesting, you could look at it for an hour and still see something you missed. WOW!!! You did an amazing job with it! That applique, no way could I have done that quilt.

    Lots of chatting this morning,
    Ggal I hope it is not the pedal foot, that might make sewing painful

    JanRN you will make the decision that is right for you, I had always worked full time but when we moved interstate DH and I decided that I would retire as we were finally in a better financial position and it took some adjustments, I was "lost" for a while but now am happy playing with my fabric when I want to and not just in stolen minutes on weekends. Think about what YOU want...

    Bev I love the Gretchen block, I made a Gretchen quilt in late 2003, it was Thanksgiving weekend and I spent the weekend in Alice Springs doing a class with Kaye England from the States. She is a fabulous teacher and a lovely lady. Still have the quilt,

    Now I am off to the Post Office to release another MB
