    Oh my goodness that pie should be renamed "Heart Attack on a Plate"

    I didn't get any of my sewing done at retreat, just worked on DD's Spike blocks and her BowTies for a medallion quilt she wants to make. We were having races with the Spike blocks, so funny, she would get all the pieces cut and stack them on the ironing board and we would take three wedges each and start at the top of the stack fabric pieces and work our way to the bottom, laughing all the way when one of us had to stop and reverse sew then we would chain piece some bowties, have a coffee eat more cake and do it all over again. I am so lucky to have her as a patchwork buddy.

    She sent me this photo last night of sleeping beauty, she asked her if she could wash Raggedy when it gets dirty and the answer was "nnnnooooo you might break it, it's my favourite blanket"

    Well I'm finally home & have read all 10 pages that I was behind on in SYE photo page & now have read the 9 pages here. So much agoin' on. I have missed ya'll.
    I forgot my camera & my GPS. LOL I had ta git a map ta git home. I stayed at my one o' my friend's house last night 'cause DH didn't want me drivin' home in my sleep deprived state. He knew I'd stay up late most nights. (One night I went ta bed at about 7:30 am & took me a nap. LOL Got up at about 11:00 & went ta lunch. I did git 3 (yes 3) PC blocks done!!!! I also orginized a charity thing: we all brought 9 patches & I sewed 'em tagether, then several o' us made other tops for Project Linus. I also taught a 10 min. block "class" & we sewed 6 o' those tagether for a PL quilt also.
    While I was gone DH went ta the old house & almost finished the movin'. We just have a couple o' things ta deal with. Gotta find someone ta move our piano ta #1DSon's house & then git the piano that is there over here. #1DSon & his family live in the house that DH grew up in, & the piano that is over there is the one he grew up playin'. The one we have is a tiny bit better but he wants the other one so we will trade w/#1DSon. Just have ta git some one ta move 'em for us.

    Dublb, take care moving those pianos.

    Mirabelle, what a wonderful picture to treasure!! She is a real sweetheart. I have a feeling that there will be more quilts to follow the Raggedy Ann...gifted there.

    Stay cool everyone, and have a good day.

    OK...I'm getting a taste of your miniatures. I'm doing the third block of SYE and the log cabin part finishes to a fat 1/4 inch.
    Anael...it would be nice to ship you some warmer weather in exchange for the cooler. It's heading for the mid 90's today and very humid....more of the same tomorrow. I made a quick run to the grocery store this morning and sitting near a fan this afternoon.
    QuiltE...stay cool! BTW...how many ribbons did you garner this past weekend?

    Hi All,

    There's no way I can keep up with all I've missed while I was away. We are back for a week and leave for the UK on the 18th. While I was gone the postie brought me a treat. Oksewglad made me a wonderful block, but I don't know the name.

    GGal think of doing this without PP! Then you will get the full effect! Isn't it crazy I can't get into PP but I do like my mini's.
    Yes hot here--TG for AC although I don't keep it exceedingly cold--too much change for when you do need to go out.
    Been working on some UFO's and now have 200 mini 9P made. All from my precut trimmings--1" bin getting smaller :-) Have to work on 2 Christmas tabletoppers for wedding gifts--must be done by Friday night-better get hopping.
    Brain dead today-- so will sign off.

    I see you got it posted Janie--It's Strip Star from Electric Quilt block library. I played around and this is what a couple of quilts would look like with it--one horizontal setting the other on point. Reminds me of the Virginia Reel or Snail's trail.Name:  Strip star horizontal.BMP

    I like the last block set up the best; nice looking quilt. You have 200 9P mini blocks done or 200 mini quilts done, OK.

    That would be alot either way.

    JanieW another beautiful MB has found a home, love the yellow rose fabric. Now must try and clean up my sewing room, everything got dumped in there after the weekend and I can't find anything.

    My embroidery machine is at the fix it shop, apparently I stripped the gears I asked her how that happens and said "I use the machine", well its not a piece of furniture. so no embroidery for a few weeks. Chat later

    GGal ... two red/first ribbons! ... one for the baby quilt (pink, Irish chain with novelty print) and one for Granny59 for her Mighty Mini Dresden's. No ribbon for my FWS, but I did find out that it was in the last 6 of the 18 in the class. Reasons were left with each entry, and the FWS they complimented the piecing accuracy and the choice of quilting design ... though felt there were too many fabrics. It was clear that they did not like "busy", when you saw the other entries and placings (top 4 placed). Pretty much all had lots of open space to allow for the quilting to have a spot to be featured. While no ribbon, I was very happy to know it made it to the final 6. And quite pleased with the other two.

    JanieW and OKSGlad ... oh that is so lovely and fresh! and what a nice pattern when you see a whole quilt done with it.

    JanieW ... I like your style ... a holiday to rest up and get ready for the next holiday!!

    MiraB ... of course you would like the roses! So it does look like you need a new machine!!!!!!!!!

    QuiltE,

    If only it was a holiday to rest up. We drove 1200kms to meet up with some friends from 41 years ago. Five of us who started out our married life and had our kids together all meet up once a year. None of us live in the original community where we started, but we gather once a year. This time it hit really close to our holiday in the UK but wouldn't have missed it. The 1200km drive back was tiring and then I knew I would be doing tomatoes today. Rest tomorrow then back at it til we go. We had a blast so it was worth it. Next year I think I will fly back!

    I mailed my Sept MB to day. I will likely be away again when mine arrives so I hope the sender will be patient with me!

    I am exhausted so am hitting the hay early tonight. Sweet dreams, everyone.

    Hi Everyone, Very pretty block Janie & OK...Your blocks all together will work very well...

    Lots of chatter with all of you and I must say I have been reading it all almost every day...

    I have been very miserable the last couple of months...first with the bursitis/left hip and now my right knee needs to be replaced...I have been trying very hard not to even think about it but when I get up to walk...I can't go 3-4 steps without stopping...it hurts when I sit/stand/trying to sleep...ankle & knee swelled so badly the other day I thought I was going to have to go to the emergency room..I used the TENS unit & ice on it and it returned to almost normal the following morning...I've been using my left foot to sew with and It's very herky jerky so I haven't been doing much of that either..I don't like to use the stop/start feature on my machine..I can't seem to stop it quickly enough and I mess up the stitches/seam...I have not been a happy camper!!! I know what has to be done and I'm dreading it..I just wanted to let you all know what's going on with me....

    Ah Anne--sorry you've been miserable. It's very frustrating when we can't seem to do the things we want to do. When you can't find a comfortable position the days just seem to drag and then little rest at night either. Hope things start to look up a little bit before you have to make the surgery commitment. Lots of hugs from here.

    Oh Honchey, so sorry for all the medical problems! That is no fun! I have gotten use to the start/stop button on my Brother, and my Baby Lock. You just have to slow down the stitching until you get the feel for it and it will work for you! After a while it is just second nature to use it. Does anyone else have a problem using the color function and return key on this site. Mine stopped working a few days ago. Rats! Maybe it is new Windows 8 computer! I don't wish Windows 8 on anyone - it is so confusing!

    Oh, Honchey...what misery! No one gives us lessons on growing up but our body sure lets us know that things aren't the same! From what I've been told, the pain of the surgery and rehab greatly diminish with proper care and time in contrast to what you're having now. You'll know when/if that's the best solution for you.
    Janie...a lovely block. They all play together so well too.
    OK...I can't imagine doing mini's with the beauty and accuracy you get without PP. you are very skilled!!

    QNS...time for your surgery is approaching and I would like to have you consider giving us...at least one of us...an alternate contact so we can keep up on your progress and send you well wishes. How about it? You can't be out of the loop just because of surgery.

    I can tell you, Anne, that the word "Whoa!" does not work to stop the sewing machine. You have to push that start stop button, or the foot petal. I have had personal experience on that one. Sorry your knee is giving you so much trouble, but it sounds like there is a 'fix' for the problem. Doctors can do wonders anymore in replacing knees, according to the people I have talked to that has gone through it themselves. However, with muscle problems, if it just that with me, I will have to suffer along for quite a while. At least, no one today shoots an old mare that goes lame.

    Discarded the MB started on yesterday. Chose a different pattern for the MB, when I get the time to work on it. Every keep cool (or warm Anael) and celebrate the day!!

    JanieW ... What a wonderful non-holiday!!!! Great that all of you make the effort from your busy lives to do the once a year reunion. I'm sure there are not many that have endured such a long time of friendship and make the point of all ten getting together once a year. And then to return to the home area too! Congratulations to all of you!!!! ......... and now the race is on to be ready to jump on the Big Bird next week!

    OKSGlad ... and how many 9Ps now? You should show us your mountain! I bet you are having fun playing with them for placement for the new minis that will result.

    Honchey
    ...{{{{{HUGS}}}}} Looks like your TENS is helping, so keep on using it to help get some relief. Hopefully, you can get your surgery sooner, rather than later, and be able to get thru the recovery stage. As for sewing with the left foot ... just like FMQing, practice, practice, practice! I switched over when I was not been successful in using the knee lift for the presser foot. At first I thought, impossible! Then I kept at it ... and now I have problems when I have to use the right for the foot pedal. Though left foot use, may irritate your left hip more. So far the stop/start and I have not made friends! My hand does not move fast enough when I need to stop quick! Take care ... I'll be thinking of you!

    QNSue ... Good Luck today with your knee and lung x-rays. How soon will you see the Dr. for the results and discuss treatment? ITA with GGal, if one of our group could have contact info to check in on you, and keep all in touch, I'm sure we would all appreciate it ... and it just might help you with your recovery too!

    GG, its a six minute surgery on my eye...so will stay in touch...eye is measured on the 25th and will see what happens after that. Distance vision is going, but close vision is fine. Do not know how the drops will affect the eye before and after surgery..thanks for the kind thoughts sent this way. One day at a time, one minute at a time. Worst case, dh will have to 'follow' directions to post for me. He hates to follow the directions, would rather do things his way!

    Janie, beautiful block on the MB. Glad you enjoyed your holidays. Enjoy the next one even more.

    QuiltE, thought you were gone again since no email bounced back...discarded that MB idea and off on another one...take care.
