    Not much news to tell from my trip yesterday, had a lovely lunch, very relaxed atmosphere. Boyfriend made me feel welcome in his home and told me that he is serious about my DD. So we will just have to wait and see where this takes them both.

    And just cause we like eye candy, here is my latest almost finish. It was a jelly roll pattern that used 2 jelly rolls, not very clear instructions but I worked it out and managed to make it a little larger, so not as much fabric wastage as the pattern. Then I found another jelly roll of the same range hidden in the cupboard and made the final border. It will be quilted at the LQS before Christmas I hope.

    OK--very happy you like your block. Your wallhanging is another pretty one!

    The fern like fabric (with no tulips) in OK's MB is actually a really light blue, so there is a med blue, lt blue and white in it.

    I am in NC right now (near Asheville). I came for a short trip with my dad to visit my sister and her family. It was one of those last minute trips. Dad wasn't planning to come until October and had invited me to come along, so I had been thinking about it. Then they told him at work he couldn't take off when he wanted to. We left around 6am Friday morning and got here about 12am Saturday...had to make a couple stops at quilt shops...

    Ggal, we stopped at Threads of Time (Danville, IL)! Sorry I couldn't give you more notice so we could meet up. Then we stopped at a place in Knoxville, TN. I am not sure which route we will be going back home, but Dad says we can plan a few more stops. I am making him a big quilt for at his cabin, so he is happy to go in and look around.

    Yesterday after meeting up with my sister for lunch we went to a big fabric store in Black Mountain, NC. I found another fabric to add to my SYE FQs and a possible background fabric for my DJ (squares). I wrote down the info, but didn't get it. We have to go through there on our way home, so still might pick it up.

    Next few days will be busy too...

    Blue Bell you would like the block IRL too! And yes it plays so nice with the others. I thought I would take a group picture of the next 6 rather than cram the block in on my wall.

    Such a pretty soft quilt mirabelle. Glad the meet and greet went well.

    Enjoy your trip Carrie--wow a patient dad to let you stop a LQS! DH just rolls his eyes when I say "quilt shop". Wish I could do the same when he sees an farm implement lot!

    Getting ready to put the binding on a Valentine's table runner. Made it when last winter when my QB's and I got together. Since we are starting a fall wall hanging on Friday I thought I'd surprise them and bring a finished project!! Of course they have theirs done from that get together!!! I did say I wanted to get some UFO's done didn't I? Feels good. Night all.

    OK, no stocking for KK. Those are for Mick, Bram and Isa. I made the other two yesterday but didn't take pictures yet.
    Carrie made you a beautiful block, did you see the approval stamp on the back?
    Your Christmasquilt is gorgeous! I admire your patience!!
    A Valentine runner in autumn, that's a lovely thought Will you show it when it's ready? Please??

    I have to go to hospital this afternoon for some more tests.

    Carrie, have a great time with your DS and enjoy your FART home

    Wishing your the best on your tests, Anael. And GrannyQ, too. Will be sending you a photo later, Anael, with the winning block MB finished. Take care.

    I've been gone camping with my church group over the weekend and I see there is a lot going on!
    Carrie...so happy you enjoyed Threads and stopped in again. They have expanded their sewing machine line but it seems that they are reducing their fabric inventory. They still have gorgeous fabrics!
    Mirabelle....I hope the BF is as nice as he sounds. That will change the family picture considerable with a ready made GD. She looks so sweet on her new quilt.
    OK...such skill! Those little blocks can look wonky faster than bigger ones but it looks like they've had a carpenters square used in them. I've seen signs of some corn being harvested for silage. How is it in your neck of the woods?
    Jeanie...the final push to have your house all in order and enjoy it. Glad you had a safe trip to see your family.
    QuiltE...wherefore art thou?
    Dubib...is the other house in the market yet? I like the idea for a design wall. It can never be big enough.
    QNS...this is the week for the cataracts isn't it? Just follow Dr's instructions but give honest feedback. A friend here didn't get immediate results but with good care and patience, she is seeing well now.
    Anael...so hope you get good news today. This has been a trying year in your life!
    GrannyQ...and for you too.
    JanRN...hummmm....how are you adjusting to retirement? Are you wondering yet how you ever found time to work?
    Janie...thanks for the shout out from UK. Hope you will have pictures to share.
    Honchey....still scooting around? Have you decided for sure on surgery?
    My toe is definitely better but I can still tell it needs more healing, especially when I accidentally bend my foot without thinking about it. I want to clean up the garden this week....keep a happy DH!...and so many pretty things to work on in my sewing room. I did sweep the floor before I left and the design wall is empty. Fresh start today! Have a good one everyone!

    j this Pony Club was loosely formed when we started the Farmer's Wife Pony Club sampler following Laurie Hird's book. This is the thread where we show our finished quilts and then lots of chatter among a few of us who have gotten to be good QB friends. Since I'm still working on my PC quilt I guess the rest are still waiting to see a "TA DA" picture from me!!

    Ah Anael--thought the pawprints were for KK!

    Thanks GGal--it's really not that hard (small piecing) I know how beautifully you all sew so you could do it! Only thing worse than a sore toe is a sore thumb! And both stick out! Going to do garden work as well today. DH has been chopping silage on a daily basis here as we are out of silage and haylage. A busy week ahead as there is haylage to make and he'll soon be chopping for the bunker. Warm late summer has helped and hindered crops here. We needed the heat units for the corn; but the beans suffered by not filling the pods out. A nice 2 inch rain a week ago sure helped that. No control over the weather so we just go with the flow!

    Have a great day everyone.

    OK, I think she would shred it, she's trying to unsew one of my quilttops pinned to the wall too

    I will get the results of all tests on Thursdaymorning, so I still don't know what's going to happen.
    Bram has to go to hospital tomorrow to see the doc because he isn't eating enough lately. Otherwise he looks ok, he's such a friendly little boy. Isa is doing ok, she's ahead of Bram in development, she's beginning to try to crawl. She hardly talks and Bram is very chatty
    Do you remember the soft toy Bram and Isa had in their incubators? I saw that toy again two weeks ago. It was in Bram's bed beside him. I was shocked how small they both were as that toy once was as tall as Bram was and now........it really is beyong imagination.

    Wonderful to hear how the twins are growing; will be thinking of Bram and you this week, Anael. Wednesday, I will go and get my eye 'measured' for the cataract surgery...hope they schedule it very soon.

    Wow, that is a good size room you have for the two of you, QNS! My room is so small in comparison. I bought about 6 yards of fabric while in Phoenix. They have this place that always has a huge rack of name brand fabrics on sale for $3.95 a yard. Just cannot pass that sale up! Now wonder how I'm going to fit it into the IKEA cabinet I store my fabric in! LOL

    Jeanie, that is sign that you need another IKEA cabinet!!

    No,the room is not large enough; it does not have room for a LA. Dh suggested swapping out the sewing room for the livingroom then I might have enough room except that would put his TV next to my bedroom which would not work. And the Serger is not up on a sewing table yet. Think the Embroidery Machine and Serger can share a table. Other thing is to finish up some UFOs...if I did 1001 of them, it might help! {That and moved dh out again! Neither is going to happen.}

    QNS, I'm so jealous of your sewing space. I have a small L-shaped room for all my sewing and cutting. Can't even back up far enough to take a pic on my design wall. My Sweet16 (if she ever comes home again!) is in my sunporch. So now I've taken up 2 rooms with my sewing. Oh well, it's just MrJanRN & I & Patches (for how much longer???) so it doesn't matter how many rooms I take as long as I don't block the view to the tv.

    GGal, welcome back. Sorry that toe is so slow to heal. Have you tried soaking in Epsom Salt water? May be an old wive's tale but it's supposed to promote healing.

    Anael, anxiously waiting with you for your test results and an update on Bram.

    Yep, I did it again. I checked the list again, and dern, I got November's MB already to go. So back to the drawing board one more time for the September MB. Thank goodness I did not mail the MB one to the wrong place and earlier than it should have been deelivered! Not much on my mind...and worrying too much, I guess. Hate for things to drag on, and on, and on. Sigh, I must go one step at a time...September MB may be a bit late, but will try to get the project moving the right way... Just got the SYE set up to do Block two; will delay it again to finish the MB. Life, one step forward, and two steps back.

    More confusion: I made the right one for this month, I thought, and then looked again at them receiving one and thought, no, I am wrong, gee, I am happy I did not mail this one...then checked Honchey's list that she sent us before I addressed the other one I did, and it seems I was right the first time around. Just got one ready for the future and this one for September is going in the mail tomorrow. Whew!! Checking that list twice from here on!! I am so happy that I saved it!!

    If the reader is not confused by now, I can try again. Laughter is good medicine.All is well that ends well.

    OMG, QNS, I'm blushing for sure! What a sweet thing to say! I re-downloaded Chrome (this time one that is specifically for Windows 8) and now have my "colors" back! And I can also use the spacebar and have it work!

    Yeah!!!

    Such a lovely star shine! Can't wait to see how it looks with the others Jeanie. WTG QE! Love it when the blocks start coming in.

    A heat pad day this afternoon but did go out and get a few tulips planted for next spring--back doesn't bother bending over--just sitting so have to keep moving.

    As promised Anael--here's the Valentine runner--pretty good size 38 x 20. I saw the fabric and was reminded of valentines sent while a child so really wanted to high light the fabric. Now it's ready for my table come February.
