    I hope, Dublb, you slept as well as I did last night...gee, did I sleep! Without doing the numbers like in the commercial for Sleep Beds! (That's when you air up the bed for better sleeping comfort, by the number that is comfortable) Got up and had a very nice, hot shower. Now for breakfast.

    Mirabelle, I wish you a happy journey and visit.., You will tell us the highlights later??

    Janie, so glad you are enjoying your trip; on the the Shard...must have felt like on top of the world?

    Wouldn't be nice, Honchey, to write a cookbook from our PC trail and give the proceeds to "let no child go hungry" campaign??? I have seen such children where I taught in CC one year, and it broke my heart. Some never knew where 'home' was...each night a different ditch or place...parents selling their 'girls' (nine to eleven yrs) for evening entertainment of 'gents'. Most of us have soooo much more blessings in our lives.

    QNS, if you need any more zucchini recipes, our local PBS station had a special on this morning: Return of the Zucchini. I think you can go to WQED.org then go to recipes and find them. Had some really yummy sounding ones on there. I can't wait to try zucchini parmesan.

    Mirabelle, I have a question. I want to make a quilt with my embroidery machine, I think it's fun. I'm wondering if I can use redwork designs for the blocks. Or do I have to have special quilt designs?

    How cute is that!! Love it, Anael. I think Mirabelle is still at DD house having fun. What ever size your redwork design is , make alternate blocks the same size and it will make a lovely quilt. I have seen several on QB site...you might do a search for them on this site and try it. I can do a search on the net and tell you what shops I find that specialize in Red Work.=, if you want.

    I'm still home, leaving in about an hour, thought I would check the chat first

    Anael you can use redwork designs if you wish, I would just be careful what stabiliser you use, not a heavy one as the stitches might pull when you remove it. We have a product called Pellon and it is a very very light weight wadding you could use that for a stabiliser. Have fun.

    I get my embroidery machine back on Tuesday, I have missed it. Need to finish the Peirrot quilt, then I have a few ideas I want to try out. Managed to get the borders on my Jelly Roll Quilt yesterday, and I only have one more block to applique and I can start putting Once Upon a Time together.

    Now I have better get moving, camera is in my bag, little gifts all wrapped, car fuelled up, I am ready for a wonderful day out.

    Hope a safe journey for you, Mirabelle.

    My MB is not working out, so selected a different pattern to 'try' tomorrow and hope for success then. Its all printed out this evening. Hope for better results tomorrow.

    Everyone must be very busy, not much chatter here on site which is unusual. Missing the chatter.

    I had my surgery Thursday, got ready to come home in the PM and I started vomiting so had to spend the night and all morning until the surgeon came in to see me. Had a lumpectomy and some lymph glands taken for testing. Sure won't be doing any sewing for awhile, so I will catch up when I can. Thank you for your prayers.

    Bf says she gets 'motion sickness' after surgery when she gets moved too soon and it brings on the unsettled stomach, and you did the right thing, GrannyQ, by staying in the hospital overnight. Our prayers are with you in your recovery and good news you are going to hear.

    Thinking of you GrannyQ, hoping for a speedy recovery and good news from the medicos.

    Anael I had another thought whilst driving today, (do my best thinking in the car) you can use 2 layers of water soluble stabiliser for your redwork embroideries. That will give you a lovely finish. I would just press and starch your fabric really well so it doesn't shift and pucker. I hope this has helped.

    I have just arrived home, had a lovely lunch and wonderful conversation. I now have DD's car for the next few weeks and she has mine She had a little accident at the shopping centre and all one side of her car was scratched, thank goodness for insurance, $4500 to have it fixed. So I have lent her my car and hers will be fixed here where I live. If I need a car desperately I can always borrow DS's or DH's truck. Great excuse not to go anywhere and get some more sewing done and I get to drive her car back to her and check out the boyfriend a bit more win win

    I got home today from Phoenix. Nice week visiting the son, DDIL, and grandkids. Haven't been online much, so lots of chatter to catch up on. I can get colors to work on my hubby's PC, but it sure does not work on this one, my return key does not give me another line either.....UGH. Windows 8 is the pits!!!! So confusing. Granny Q, I'm praying for you and hope you feel better real soon.

    Finally got pp MB fabric cut out and I like it; now to get the latest pattern set together and mail on Tuesday. If anyone asks, "Tis in the mail!"

    The new arrangement in sewing room is almost working very well. When I get it cleared again, will take pictures.

    So Killer Kitty gets a stocking for Christmas--hmmm will he get a lump of coal or some sticks? He's got 3 months to be a good kitty.

    So added another 100 9P's to the jar! Hoping to do at least 50-100 a week until I run out of 1" strips.

    I'm on a UFO mission. Got the binding on a little Christmas quilt--no picture yet. Today spray basted a 55 x 55 quilt for my DSis and hope to have it finished when I go visit her this fall. Tonight going to go see what else I can cross off the UFO list.

    Meanwhile look what I received in the mail. EQ calls it Rhode Island. Isn't it lovely? And so beautifully sewn like all the rest of them. Thanks Carrie!Name:  Carrie.jpg

    It is beautiful, OksewGlad. Good job, Carrie. I don't know if I could maintain your pace, Oksewglad...and do 50 to 100 little 9P a week! It has taken me over two weeks to do an MB to sent out this month....started over three or four times with different blocks. I will take a picture to send to the 'judge', then put it into envelope to mail Tuesday.

    Another beautiful block, well done Carriem and it will play nice with your other oksewglad. Love your wallhanging, I know I like playing with small bits of fabric but you are awesome with what you achieve ok, can't wait to see your jar filled with 9p's.

    Blushing here--mirabelle! This quilt started out with the green/light and red/light HST's given to me by a friend. Somebody else's leftovers. Also had some more of the light fabrics and the greens in the bag. So I just played around and well here it is. I have such a hard time following directions. Guess I have always followed my own path!

    OK, love the block that Carrie sent you for 2 reasons, one it is in blue, my favorite color, and EQ calls it the Rhode Island block, where I live. It is a beautiful block.
