    OK - that is just darling! Great pattern to show off the fabric! I love table runners, just put a fall one on my table!

    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.
    Now that's a beautiful quilt. Ya did good girl!

    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.

    I spent another half a day cleanin' at my old house. Actually I was puttin contact paper in the cabinets, & my DF & #2DSis were cleanin'. My DF cleaned the refrigerator, inside & out. My DSis washed walls & cleaned the underside o' the vent-a-hood. I still have cabinets that need contact paper. LOL I did have trouble with gittin' that $&%##^% contact paper in several places. One cabinet has a door that is smaller than my shoulders are wide & it goes way far ta the right under the rest o' the cabinet. Ta git in there is quite a struggle & I trashed several sheets o' contact paper tryin' ta git it in place. That cabinet had 2 shelves in it too. In the end DF took over & did the last o' that bottom shelf. I'm a nice size at 5 ft 2 & 125lbs, but she is much smaller at 5 ft 4 & 110 lbs. One o'the refrigerator shelves shattered while DF was washin' it in the sink. She was so upset. DH & I discussed it & we are just gonna rearrange the shelves & not worry about it. All in all it was quite a day. I think the kitchen will git finished when we go there back Wed.
    I did git my MB in the mail before I went ta the old house.

    OK that is a beautiful table runner, love the cute fabric you used.

    QNS I am thinking of you as you prepare for what is ahead, you just need to slow down and take care of yourself. Thank you for posting pics of your sewing room. Lots of creativity happens in that space.

    Bev so glad you are getting the old house in order, it takes time but it sounds as though you have some wonderful helpers.

    Just back from the city, had to pick up DH at the airport, he came home a day early. Picked up my embroidery machine while I was there so this afternoon will set it back up again ready to go tomorrow. I have a small quilt I want to finish.
    Have a great day everyone

    QNS, you have a great sewing room! Though I have spare rooms I always sew in my living room on the dining table. I hate to be upstairs all by myself .... Rather be downstairs all by myself

    Beautiful Valentine table runner OK. I can see why you want to highlight the focus fabric!

    Jeanie, you've got a wonderful block from QuiltE. She didn't send it for approval though.......

    Here's what I've been doing. Three Christmas Stockings and a drawstring bag for Mick. The stockings are InTheHoop designs from Embroidery Library, the design on the bag is from Amazing Designs, it's a Morehead design.

    Jeanie...such a nice block and I can appreciate having a computer that works like you expect it to.
    dubib...nice progress on the old house. Your life will change dramatically when you no longer have the cleaning and fixing of it over your head.
    Anael...such cute stockings and bag. You women with embrodiery machines are making owning one so enticing. Not room for it in my sewing room though do I think I'm safe.
    Mirabelle....good news to get your machine back. The pace you keep would have fooled me that it was ever missing!
    i made applesauce and apple cake yesterday and the tree is still loaded! Today I'll check on the long neglected raspberries. My garden is up on a hill at the back of the property so I didn't make it up there as often as needed with my foot like it is so I've missed a month of raspberries...and this year they are bearing real heavy. A4A lesson done for the week so today will be working on something that is almost done. I have a couple that have just been hanging on.

    Update on Bram: he isn't gaining weight but still looks happy and content. If he would have looked sick or not so happy he would have been admitted today. He's got one week to gain some weight. He will get more bottles a day with less food in it, a little bit of water after every feeding to prevent developing more mucus so let's hope it helps.

    GG, I wish I had a garden like you. Hope you can get to the apples and raspberries soon again!

    It's so hard to get those little ones to gain sometimes and then the next one is just the opposite--go figure.

    QNS you have a sewing space to envy!

    QuiltE, you were missed and I am happy you are back. My eye gets measured tomorrow (In Charition, at 2:40pm, Dr. Charles Clark's office) for cataract removal and they will tell me their schedule to remove it. Knee does not get seen until October by the specialist.

    I got confused on whose MB I was to make, which resulted in one couple months ahead being done, but found out the original thought was correct and it went into the mail today with a tracking number so I *know* where it is roaming. Murphy's Law that Anael kindly sent to me has been with me almost the 'whole' day. At least, we know if its here, it cannot be a nuisance to her, she has enough on her plate right now with kidney stones.

    Had to change our bank account to a new account, got the checks in the mail, got our hair cut, prescriptions picked up, packages mailed, (checks accepted everywhere) and stopped at Wal Mart to shop. Grabbed a few items for grandson coming in October, and they refused my check. *gasp*. Tele-check toll free number on paper they gave to me. Luckily, I had the cash, so I paid the bill and dh brought me home with smoke rolling out my ears!! They heard from me. Turns out if I had called while at the store they would have OK'd the check. All is straightened out NOW.

    Give me a few minutes and I can confuse myself and everyone else.

    QNSue ... the good news is that you have one of the ones in the future done! Sounds like you two had a it of a confusing day. Now I am confused ... as I thought you already had the date set for your surgery.

    Anael ... how are you and your stones making out?

    Anael, those are precious! Great job! Mick will just love what you made especially for him! Good news on Bram. Maybe he is just a light eater? I would have said to bulk him up with some cereal, surprised that the Dr. said no food.

    GG - I feel the same way about my apple tree. Just had no place to process much of anything. I have a few apples left over, so I'm also making a Caramel Apple Cake today. Yum, we just love it.

    Hooray QE is back!!!
    I went back ta the old house by myself & finished puttin' the contact paper in the kitchen. Well except for under the sink. My DF & I will go back over there again after she gits off o' work tamarrow. She gits off at 2:00pm & will have ta go home, change clothes & eat first so we'll probaably git there at about 2:45 or 3:00. When DH got off o' work he stopped by the old house & vacuumed 1 room. He was very pleased about all that we had done.

    JeanieG, I love your apple plans. Ours are ready to harvest, hope Thursday we can get to it. Forget about the falls, because the chickens quickly take the advantage and devour the apples, peaches, etc. Guineas enjoyed all the beet tops in the garden and every grasshopper they could catch. Ornamental peaches are getting ripe too and they make the best jam. (See, I am already thinking Christmas and gift boxes again!! Guess everyone could email me for the sign up????)

    See, QuiltE, I told you I can confuse anyone. I thought I had an appointment at eight in the morning but luckily checked what the Dr. had written out for me and its 2:40 pm, so we have ample time to get there in daylight hours and home again. One step at a time, and they have to measure the eye before the surgery.

    Dublb, its good that you are so near the finish on your old home. Good luck to you on selling it very quickly.

    Hey, more MBs should be arriving any day...

    Welcome "home" QuiltE, nice to have you back, no synopsis from me you will just have to make a cup of tea and sit and read all the goings on

    Anael I hope that Bram starts to gain weight, and all is good news for him..

    No more cakes for me, although that cake Caramel Cake at JeanieG's sound delish, can someone grab a piece and have a taste test for me, she will never know

    And look what the postie delivered to me today, have just pressed it and put it on the wall with its friends. Thank you so much JanRN it is beautiful. The block comes from QuiltersCache and is called A Christmas Star. Doesn't it sparkle.. My wall of blocks is filling up fast

    Now I am going to play in my sewing room, haven't sewn a stitch for 2 days. I am definitely having withdrawals

    Jeanie, Bram can't have cereals yet, he's too small. He does get food, only less in each bottle and more bottles a day so he does get what he needs. The fact he didn't gain weight in about 4 weeks is worrying.

    Mirabelle, lovely block you got from Jan. Did you already decide on sashing and borders?

    QNS, sorry Murphy landed at your place! Like QuiltE said, you're ahead with the MB's now.....

    QNS....don't blink while they measure your eye! I hope it all goes well and you will be seeing better soon.
    QuiltE....glad to have you back. You'll have to tell us about your adventures.
    Jeanie....that Carmel apple cake sounds delicious. I don't have a regular oven so baking is a challenge here.
    Dubib....good progress on the house. I think the cleaning after moving is the hardest part. You just want to get settled in the new place but the old place needs the cleaning and final tossing of stuff... It doesn't go on forever though is the good news.
    Mirabelle....your blocks look wonderful together. My pineapple blocks will look good together. I think these MBs would look good in a medallion setting if you want a large quilt.
    Anael...I hope little Bram's system levels out so more energy can go to weight gain rather than maintaining where he is. His little body has to be working so hard. What is the word in your stones?
    GrannyQ....any news? Thinking of you.
    Carrie...what a special time for you. I hope you're taking the fullest advantage of it.
    JanRN....do you have your S16 back yet? Any quilting going on?
    OK...my DH has back issues and he has found that sitting in a chair that allows him to lean way back helps . In the car, he almost has the seat laying down.
    The news here is that I finally got the binding sewn down on my Jamestown yesterday. It didn't make any difference in my WIP/UFO list though. I don't understand....I've only started 2 more projects this summer and didn't sign up for Marti&Me. I felt like I was making so much progress.

    What a wonderful grouping of blues and yellows in blocks from a variety of PCers; JanRN made hers fit right in to the family....beautiful blocks, Mirabelle.

    Murphy worked overtime yesterday; my cane is missing at one of two places, so will backtrack today to locate it. It was in the cart when dh unloaded each time. Apparently, he did not notice. Should have know better myself to think that he would notice...rather give me a bad time...instead of paying attention to what was going on...if we don't find it; then we don't find it. Like a child, he is very good or he is horrid. I prefer the first, and hate the latter. If I open my mouth, its a fight when he feels that way, no matter what I say. Growing old together is not easy. Sigh. And he thinks everyone loves to hear his old stories. Sigh. It is a new day and I hope a better one today. Everyone have a good one.
