    OKSGlad ... yes minor, but my goodness it affects sewing! As it throbbed away last night, all I could think of was "butttttttt this is my needle pulling thread finger!". While I have not been machine sewing, I have been doing some of my GFGs, so now, that will not be happening for awhile. Good thing, as now I need to panic sew and get my MB done ... as well as a Challenge Block for the Fair next weekend. Just drew up what I want to do ... and am going to use my MB as the prototype. (I think!!) Here's hoping not long lasting effects for DGD#3. While I had not thought of a cast for her doll, I did have visions of you doing a decoupage quilt all over the cast!

    QNSue ... new one to me! My old fall back is epsoms salts! YOu dind't mention it, but I am sure the Dr. also wants you to slow down a tad or six, to let that knee get better. While you may get comfort from Aleve, .... it does not fix things.

    OK Ladies ....... are we going to have to gang up on QNSue and rope and tie her?

    QNS, thanks for the 'young women'

    OK, I'm sorry your DGD broke her ankle. You could draw applique blocks with funny animals on her cast

    QuiltE, I guess you do have a lot of machine sewing also. Is anyone of us without physical problems? She could fly around the world as our nurse and pamper all of us including OK's DGD!

    MB for this month is done...friendship square done...friendship project done...will mail them out when I get home in NJ... Traveling 10 hours tomorrow...then the family reunion on Saturday...Kids on Sunday...then sleep all day Monday
    Vacation house has been cleaned & freshened up so when we return it'll be so nice!!! It's so easy when there isn't alot of stuff to get in the way... I just have to have DH vacuum the sewing room..just the fridge needs to be sorted out & dishes in the dishwasher...Packing the car after BINGO tonite!!!! then a nice long soak in the tub and to bed by 12 tonite...ha ha ha ha ha! Typing it is easy..doing it is another story

    I really like the little mini quilts...so cute!!! one inch strips??? do you just follow a regular size pattern using the little pieces??? I might want to try this... think!!!

    OK, when this child needs a shower use the Glad Wrap & Seal...it really works...used it when I had my knee replaced & rotator cuff surgery...I also used a plastic trash bag with elastic band over it to make sure it ddn't get wet... it didn't!...medicated powder will help when it starts to itch inside the cast...use a fat straw to blow it inside...tricks I learned...

    Gee, I hope we all start getting better.... Have to get ready for BINGO!!!!

    OKSGlad ... I still think that last mini should be called Lattice Top Pie!
    Looks like that pickle jar will hold many 9Ps .... I already can picture it filling up, decreasing, then re-filling. Kind of like a bottomless cup of coffee!

    Honchey ... Despite your hurts, you've been very productive. Bless you for putting me into that productivity. Now one last chance to screeeeeeeam B-I-N-G-O!!!!!!! May you take the windfall again tonight. Looks like a busy weekend for you ahead. Good Luck with the journey tomorrow ... will you just rest? or can you manage to crochet while MrH drives along? Do you leave each time, knowing when your next return date is?
    Take care!!!!!!!!

    Im so glad to hear the happy chatter even with all of the aches and pains we sure do FINE dont we?

    SIGH!!! have any of you used Inklingo? I want to try it but worry that I will NOT like it if I do, and it really is too expensive to NOT use if I buy it.... I tried to download FREE patterns and already having difficulty's downloading... have you tried it? will it even work for a cavewoman like me????

    My dh not only did the dishes up today (so I could put things away and make his bean soup), he brought the mail into my sewing room. there was an envelope from GrannyQ with an MB in it for me. Wow. Love it. Will post the picture of February Folics from EQ7 later...let's all remember her name in our prayers 'cause she has health issuers coming up on the nineteenth of this month. And we want a good report back after that date, GrannyQ.

    Good news...I finally got all the propellers quilted and have two sides of the 3rd border pinned on the airplane quilt! If DH decides to go work in the shop tonight, then I will head to the clubhouse and get these sewn on so I can pin the other two sides on. That means finish border and then BINDING tomorrow!!!!

    Definitely going for a second opinion on my knee. Nurse practitioner is new and did not really look at knee(Just at my age); will have Dr. see my and go from there to specialist.

    Almost missed your upcoming trip, Honchey; may you have a safe trip back home.

    Interesting jar collection, OKsewGlad...that makes all the 9P one and one half inches pieces...that you use in a mini?

    GrannyQ is the first one that I have heard that has all her MBs done for everyone; she will send them out each month. She sure surprised me with one today:Name:  DSCN0020.JPG

    Oh what a great block--such a rich take on the Hole in the Barn Door block. Gonna be a nice scrappy QNS. I so enjoy seeing the blocks all together; especially for those I have yet to do. I try to make a block to fit in with the others. I'm hoping that I have accomplished that.

    Let's all remember to crowd around the RV campfire on the 19th to send caring thoughts to GrannyQ. She's had so much on her plate this past summer.

    Yup the pickle jar 9's finish at 1 1/2". Hey that'll be a good name for the project-Pickle Jar 9's! I hope to keep filling this for a long while. I'll keep you updated.

    Okay so I have shown the "Lattice Top Pie" before--oh well.

    Thanks for stopping by BlueBell and thanks for the complement.

    Back to sewing almost have the second Christmas top done. No report on the casted kid yet.

    QNSue and GrannyQ ... what a great Block and so nice and cheery!

    GrannyQ ... prayers for you for next Thursday and for all the rest of your family and their own health issues.

    OKSGlad ... you could always name each PJ9 after a different type of pickle!

    Hey, we could give a shower for OksewGlad....a shower of inch and one-half scrappy pieces to fill her jar and inch or so. Err on the large size not smaller, so she can trim them...I just 'happen' to have some....Should it be a surprise to her on how many of us could ship direct to her???

    Your visiting nurse is checking in. Oh wait! I just work on Fridays so you'll have to see me tomorrow LOL. So sorry for all the health problems everyone is having. Lots of prayers and good vibes being sent to all of you.

    Love the block from GrannyQ-bright and cheery.

    OK when I was at the Quilting Expo a few weeks ago there was one booth that had patterns for only minis. Her samples were awesome. Instead of Tumbler blocks she uses Thimble blocks-they finish the size of a real thimble and come as packaged pre-cuts. I started one of her mini Santa wall hangings. It finishes at about 12 x 18 and has 1.5 million pieces. When you sew your minis do you have an iron at your machine? I iron across the hall in the bathroom (makes me get up so my butt doesn't keep getting bigger) but some of the seams are only 4 or 5 stitches. I'm thinking of getting a small iron so I can iron the seams at my machine (and forget about my butt).

    Anne, just saw on the news the devastating fire on the Jersey Boardwalk. How much more can happen in one area? Just pray everyone's safe especially the fire fighters. Have a safe trip home.

    Oh, oh, oh I got a block from Miribelle! Talk about purdy!! She said that it was a "Stained Glass Star." I'll git a pict tamarrow.
    I have started plannin' my Sept MB. It's gonna be PP. I have a 9" pp pattern & have figered out how much ta enlarge it butt am outta freezer paper. I stopped at the LQS & they are outta the kind that goes right through the printer easy. sigh. I guess I'll have ta do it the old fashion way. Use the roll kind that ya git at the grocery store, & iron it on ta the paper, then cut the FP the size o' the paper. Now it can be run through the printer. sigh I hate doin' it that way. LOL It's better than not havin' FP a'tall. I had better just do it tamarrow & quit grippin'.

    Gee Whiz Jan, Do we have to make an appointment now??? Dh, Older GS and myself went to Seaside Heights about a week before we came down here in NC ...we walked the boardwalk, ate sausage & peppers drank fresh made lemonade..2 very old traditions for Seaside...Matty played the machines in the arcade and we all had alot of fun...so much of what I remember when I spent summers there is gone, gone, gone...now with the devastating fire the other end of the boardwalk will be gone...Our Family Reunion on Saturday is only a scant mile from the boardwalk...I hope there won't be a problem going over the bridge to get there...

    Me thinks there will be some minis in the future for us...Hey, why not??? we do just about everything but them!!!

    Oh such a bright & happy block GrannyQ & QNS!!! All your blocks go so well together QNS!!!I'll make sure to mention all of you in my prayers...

    QuiltE, I won $75 tonite at BINGO...YAY!! I felt your vibes all the way down here!! I got everything except the tub bath done..shower instead and was sitting at 11:02...I'm winding down having a glass of wine and hoping for a good nites' sleep...
    I have 2 other small lap size charity throws that I'm also crocheting besides the one for myself...and YES, I do crochet in the car and I do some hand work...I even sometimes do some rotary cutting of strips using a 6" ruler...It all depends on what I feel like working on...that's part of the problem...I bring everything I think I'll need in case I get bored....I sometimes sleep...I will help out and drive for about 2 hours to let DH catch a few ZZZZZZ"s..
    Going to play a few games of solitare then it's beddy bye for me...
    Oh by the way, my knee is feeling much better after staying off it..Hint hint QNS...still some twinges when I turn without being cautious...but it is sooo much better than several days ago...Will have the Tens ready in case I need it on my journey home...Good Night All...H

    Honchey ... I heard that B-I-N-G-O all the way up here, across the 49th!!!! Two good wins. Glad to know that sitting more is helping your knee to settle down and feel a little better. I've knit and crocheted in the car and could now see doing GHGs, but rotary cutting? My goodness you are brave!

    OKSGlad ... on the what to do in cars ... I well remember one car trip to WDE where I knit a gazillion miniature socks, toques and mittens for Christmas decorations. Still hang them on my tree every year. Are you going to be able to manage a WDE get-away this year?

    Yippeee!!! ... have my September MB about 3/4 done. So, _________ I should be able to mail it on Monday.

    Calling Nurse Jan--you won't believe what I just did. Yup sewed my finger--pointer left hand. Needle broke off too. Fortunately blood did not fall onto the quilt and it has a lot of white in it! So ran upstairs with hand up--got the cold water going; band aids out; antibiotic salve; no longer bleeding but throbs a little. Whew close call--last time I did it was in the 80"s; but had a bit of the needle left in my right pointer finger. That one went through the nail. Course it was about midnight then too. ER MD was an older fellow--didn't believe me when I insisted that there was a piece in my finger. But he cut into the end of the finger until low and behold he found it. Oh ladies just be careful!

    Okay back to machine quilting--I was doing some straight lines so not FMQing.

    Calling it quits now--got the blue and white one quilted as well as the binding on--now to hand stitch it. The cream and red center is quilted but want to stipple in the red borders and don't have a very good match so will pick some thread up tomorrow. Good excuse to stop at LQS right? These measure about 24" square each--will share a picture when I get done tomorrow. Time line's going good.

    Will pick a few apples tomorrow for apple crisp.

    No don't do zucchini QE sorry. Now good night.

    Gee I am only gone a day and it takes me whole hour to catch up

    To all our walking wounded I hope you heal quickly, Anael take care of yourself, not a nice infection to deal with. QNS slow down a little. Ouch needle through the finger have only seen that once and it was not my finger thank goodness and yes the air turned blue with choice words

    I am home from embroidery club and stupid learner drivers on the highway need to learn to look in their side mirrors, I was overtaking them on an overtaking lane and they just decided to move into my lane, missed me by inches. Thank goodness for good brakes and new tyres.

    Sorry QE no zucchini slice recipe, but a lady at club today made zucchini scones and they were light and fluffy and so delicious

    Dublb I am so glad you liked the block, I also have all my MB's finished and on the design wall, which makes taking photos of other stuff very difficult.

    Anael I redid that block and am happy that you helped me with that decision, see Quilt Inspector comes in hande sometimes

    Now it is time to cook dinner and relax, or maybe I will go check out that crochet rug pattern first

    OK I sewed my finger to a quilt once--OUCH!! Is your Tetanus shot up to date? (They're good for 10 years). I had to get one at the time and I think my arm hurt more than my finger. Since you do so much outdoor/farm work it's important to get one today or tomorrow if you're due. (nurses can be such nags!)

    OK NOOOOOOOOOOO that hurts! I did that once too, needle still in my finger. Late hubby turned green when he looked at it but pulled it out.

    Did you all notice it's Friday 13th today?
    I was burning some DVD's for Mick, programm stopped working at dvd # 9. Removed it from the computer, installed again, same problem. Found another programm, that didn't work at all. So another one, that one did work. DVD tray opened automaticly which I didn't know. Coffee cup was in the way, keyboard soaked so after I cleaned up the mess I ran upstairs to find a spare keyboard. When I was upstairs I heard a 'bang' downstairs. Went looking, yes, tray opened again, coffee cup again in the way, is now in the bin
    I think I better watch a movie instead of FMQ today!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat
