    Thank you for all the Welcome Home's!
    It's nice to be missed .... even if I am in "trouble" with Anael for not getting approval on JeanieG's MB! OOPS!

    And yes, I will give some updates later ... when the coming-home-flurry settles down a little!

    Anael ... I'm now wondering about Bram and hoping that all is OK. Guess I will figure the rest out when I do my catch-up read!

    JeanieG .. hope you liked your MB and that it is playing well with its buddies! Apple Caramel Cake sounds ever-so decadent!

    DublB ... By now you will be thinking you should have called in Molly Maid to clean your old house! Are you going to sell it? Or are you keeping it for your son(s)? or to rent?

    QNSue ... measuring appointment is simple and easy. Forget what date the surgery is to be? If your cane is not found, you'd better stop and purchase a new one today.

    MiraB and JanRN ... oh what a lovely MB ... and a nice group playing well together.

    MiraB ... and what is peaking out along the right side of the group photo? Yes, a cuppa it'll be for my catch-up! How are the Princess blocks going?

    GGal ... Yeaaaaaaaaa for another finish! Now for the photo op, so we can all oooooh and aaaahhh! Speaking of back issues .... I'm off to the chiro this aftn for a tune-up!

    OKSGlad ... is that nasty ILean visiting again?

    CarrieM ... now this has me reeeeeeeally curious!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully you'll enlighten me instead of leaving me in suspense ... not sure when my cuppa and read will happen!

    QuiltE, Bram went to the Doctor's yesterday because he's not eating well. Turns out he hasn't gained any weight in about 4 weeks.
    I can't tell you anything about my stones. Tomorrow I will go to hospital to find out what they're planning to do.

    It is very yummy!

    Thanks for sharing JeanieG; we are doing up apples tomorrow morning. Good time to try it.

    Well I passed the eye measuring tests and they will operate on the right eye November 1st. Do not know time yet.

    Think Murphy's Law is gone is visiting, so beware folks. Found my cane this afternoon at Hy-Vee Grocery store. Need to put food away....later.

    OMGosh I'm so tired! When I first got ta the old house taday I worked on scrubbin' under the kitchen sink again while my DF wiped out the stove. I had turned it on ta self clean but ya have ta wipe the ashes when it's done. Then I mopped the floor o' the inset that the stove & refrigerator go in. We pushed 'em in when the floor was dry. I was gonna mop the rest o' the floor but decided not ta do that till I had vacuumed the popcorn ceiling. I used ta do that chore about 3 or 4 years but haven't done since I was so sick & my DGDad died. Both happened in '05. Everything has happened since then. Anyway I started vacuumin' that ceilin'. The kitchen, dinnin' area, & den are one big room (so is the ceilin'!) I got 3/4's o' it done. My neck is killin' me! While I did that my DF washed the panelin' in the den & the built in bookshelves. Dh & both DSon's came & took the evaporative air cooler out o' one o' the windows. It was in bad shape so they tossed it. Well we are home now & restin'.

    QE--short version is that I went to North Carolina (14+ hrs away) to see my sister and her family (went with Dad and two younger kids)...left last Friday at about 6am. We hit a couple quilt shops on the way down and a few more on the way home...got home tonight at 5:30pm. Long trip in a short time, but all-in-all fun. More details later...need to catch up, rest a bit and finish unpacking.

    Anael and Bram ... {{{HUGS}}} to you both!

    JeanieG ... Thanks for the link. Taste of Home recipes have always been winners for me! Just might be something I will make for Thanksgiving dinner with my "adopted"family! Must be beyond yummy!

    QNSue ... Nov 1st will be here before you know it!!

    DublB ... what a day ... remember what I said about Molly?

    CarrieM ... a fast trip by the sounds of it. Good thing that Dad and your kids are good sports about LQS stops!!! Now back to the normal at-home pace for you! Is it this weekend you head off to your retreat?

    GGal ... are you in on this retreat?

    I am so excited, I got a letter in the mail from a girl friend of the family some 20-24 years ago, that lives down by Herman, Mo....have tried several times to get her address or telephone number and finally using www.spokeo.com I got her location and sent her a short letter. Did not know if she would every read it or a stranger, but she got it and answered my letter. She says maybe we can get together in the Spring. Worst thing that happened to her, was her Mother disappeared on a camping trip while camping with her sister and family, some eleven years ago. No leads on what happened to her at all. (GF) daughter is grown up, married and widowed at the young age of 24. I remember going to the St. Louis Zoo, and the daughter (age of 18 months) screaming at the top of her lungs all the way back to Jefferson City, Mo...the trip seemed like a lifetime on the road.

    So Murphy's gone from here, which is wonderful. Now if DD can re-work her Dad's computer that will not access the internet since last night, times will get back to normal run of the mill; just maybe.

    Carrie so happy you had a wonderful trip with the family and got to stop at quilt shops. Now tell us more about your loot!

    I have 5 minutes to play on the computer and then I have to get back to "it". Tuesday was a wasted day as I had to drive to the city and pick up DH, he is home early. Wednesday was spent cleaning out my pantry and a little bit of sewing. Today I have driven to Patchwork, got home at 12 had a coffee and then went grocery shopping. Now I loathe shopping in the afternoon, I like being there when the door open in the morning and home before it gets too hot. Back home and I have cooked all the dog food, have a Chicken Broth on the stove now as DH is having a colonoscopy on Friday so clear liquids for him. I feel like I have accomplished nothing in the past 3 days.. DH can walk to the hospital tomorrow but I have to pick him up in the car as he is not allowed to cross the road following anaesthetic, we just have to cross the road and we are the second house from the corner.

    Very observant QuiltE, the little strip you can just see is my 4 inch stars, I needed a distraction the other day so started making the Quarter Square Triangles and sewing 2 rows together to see what they look like. I made a rule with this quilt and that was to not purchase any fabric for it, that includes backing and borders so I hope I have enough for what I want to do with it. I have about 120 scrappy little stars made. Will take a pic tomorrow but first I will have to take everything off my design wall as no peeking allowed

    I have 1 more block to applique, DD has 2 left to do and then I can start cutting the sashing and connecting strips.

    Bring on Saturday cause I plan on not coming out of my sewing room all day. Now I must go and pack all the dog food in the freezer, spoilt dog, this week he has chicken sausages, meatballs and chicken wings on his menu

    Well I'm up early. After vacuumin' the ceilin' I got ta bed early so am up early. Still only 7 hours o' sleep. I guess that's better'n 5 or 6. Right? I did "sit" on ice before I went ta bed as ta keep my back from wakin' me up. Well it wasn't my back it was my shoulder. LOL I guess it didn't like me holdin' that vacuum hose over my head for all that time. I sat out back on the patio w/ DH before he started gittin' ready for work. He is usually up this early. I might head back ta bed once he has headed out.

    Me, too. Dublb. Cannot breathe. Allergies. Much to do today; most of it I will do sitting down. Slicing apples this morning.

    Mirabelle, I feel for your Mr. M...had that done four times in Texas over 16 years and here last April. Better than colon cancer....

    Working on the second SYE block and it went all the wrong ways yesterday...better hopes for trying it again and will see what happens.

    Everyone have a good one. I took an allergy pill. Nice there is a pill for that and then I can smile through the running nose and eyes.

    Carrie...welcome home! Glad you had some sister time too.
    Dubib....it sounds like you're getting down to the finish line with the old house. Glad you've had good help.
    QNS....get to feeling better. Glad you found your cane.
    Mirabelle....I too saw the stars. I haven't been successful with my scrappy quilt yet. There is always something more interesting to sew and in the meantime, my scrap bag is getting fuller. Do you cut your scraps right away into the size you will use?
    The best news is that I got my MB from Dubib yesterday. I really like it. I also finished the Marching Elephants quilt for my DGG?. Two finishes in two days!!!! Pictures will come soon. I don't know how to upload them from my iPad so it means using my laptop and it is very slow. Needs some technical attention. Now just to figure out the next UFO/WIP to tackle. Empty project boxes are appealing to me!

    Good morning, or should I say afternoon? It's 3 pm here

    QNS, I hope you feel better soon. Nice to be reunited with a long lost friend!
    Dublb, take it easy and take good care of yourself!
    GG, nice to get some UFO's done. Empty boxes......not here
    Mirabelle, I hope all will be ok with Mr. M.

    I have to go to hospital on October 17th for treatment. I hope once will be enough but she wasn't sure. We will see.
    Bram isn't doing any better, still doesn't empty his bottles. He only gained 10.5 ounces over the past 6 weeks.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Hi Everyone, I haven't disappeared tho it may seem that way...I haven't been ill...my knee & ankle have been cooperating since the weather hasn't been rainy or damp...I just can't overdue the walking..

    DH left on Sunday with a bunch of his golfing buddies for a 4 day stay in Denver, Pa so I decided to visit DSis in De. for a couple of days...got home last nite...I didn't bring my CP as I usually use hers and when she told me her CP died..I was lost...So now after I delete a ton of emails I will relax and read the pages I missed while I was away...

    I wasn't able ta go back ta sleep so I played w/some fabric. I went through my bin o' patriotic fabrics, got 'em organized, picked out fabrics for one block & got 3 fabrics picked out for another block. Then I went back over ta the old house & finished vacuumin' the ceilin'. My shoulders are killin' me again.

    Preparing for tomorrow...Have JeanieG recipe for apple cake made up and in the oven...two loaves of oatmeal bread rising and 18 pints ready to put the hot apple slices into...no sugar on them...fresh and juicy they do not need any sugar. Extra mashed potatoes and gravy in the refrigerator for tomorrow when I do not cook or work...maybe. Birthdays are not meant to be work alcoholics day. Of course, Murphy might come back and prove me wrong.

    Dh has been a big help today; he peeled all the apples and helped core them and slice them with his gadgets...while I moved slowly through what I could do. Fixed him his fried chicken and gravy with mashed potatoes at lunch. He came back from town and started washing up the dishes as I finished up kneading bread and mixing up the cake.

    Is it time for the second break yet..??? Nope. back to work.

    QNS you wear me out just listening to all you get accomplished.

    And dublb has been cleaning overtime! Sounds like you will be getting on the PC trail once again with the fabric organization!

    Not much going on here. Later.

    Well, I am not sure where my message went but I know I wrote one earlier this afternoon....

    I got a pretty block while I was away from OK. It will go very well with my other blocks...I'll get a picture of them all this weekend. Didn't make it to my clubhouse today and after my appt tomorrow I go to work. Today was spent unpacking and getting the house back in order. The last load of laundry is in the dryer now.

    GNS--I don't know how you get all you do done in a day. I feel like I do a lot some days, but all the food prep you do is amazing!

    Good to read all the recent chatter and hear from most everyone....sorry for not commenting on everything...too much happening in the last week!

    Beautiful block, Carrie.

    I miss-stepped on what I said earlier. There are 28 pints of apples for the day, all processed. the other half of the apples are still in the garage. One very good Apple Cake done. And four loaves of bread baked and on the counter. Dh is test tasting at this moment.

    Just back from the hospital, they will ring me when I have to pick him up..

    Carriem another beautiful MB to add to your collection

    Here is a very bad photo of my little stars, I am hoping to make this into a Queen size quilt, we will see how far I get with it. So far so good. The Quarter Square Triangles are Robert Kaufman Fusions and the other one is a RK Screen print, they went together and I had enough so that made that decision easier. I didn't want these to be scrappy as I wanted some structure to the quilt. Hope that makes sense.

    GGal I have a small basket on my table and toss all my little bits into it, when it is getting full I have a day or sorting, strings all go in a shoe box (when it gets full I make a few string blocks to be used later) the only squares I cut are 2 1/2 inches and they are kept in a container. If I can cut a set of star points for my little stars they go into my container along with background pieces, anything smaller gets put into another container for paper piecing my Wild and Goosey blocks.
    If I want to "just sew" without thinking I will do some stars or paper piece some goosey blocks and everything is ready to go.
