    Dublb--great job on Ggal's MB for Sept.

    Honchey--if I saved all the right pictures here are those who have not received their Sept block (or have not posted them any ways): QuiltE, Janie (for obvious reasons), Honchey, GrannyQ (also been busy!) and Deranged_Damsel. If I missed anyone, sorry!!

    QE--I am pretty sure the block QNS got this month was from GrannyQ...I am saving pictures but didn't think to put what month people got them. Just have a folder for each person's blocks.

    Jan, hope you're feeling better !

    QuiltE, thanks for all the work! The picture you sent me through email was quite clear, I like the steps idea. If I were any better at EQ I would draw something up like that but I'm not.....guess I don't spend enough time with the programm.

    QNS, thanks for showing two lovely quilts. The owl quilt is gorgeous, I know you posted it before.

    GG, that's a gorgeous block Bev made you. I love them all together

    What a wonderful group of Pineapple Blocks Ggal, can't wait to see it together. I pulled out my pineapple quilt and now have it on the back of my lounge chair. Lots of memories in that quilt, my best friend and I travelled all night on a bus to participate in a quilting retreat, then rearranged our motel room so we could sew all night spent 2 days sewing then all night on a bus again to get home. SHE didn't go to work on Monday but I did We both still have our quilts..

    Great story Mirabelle!

    I found a quilt lay-out I think will work with my Laurel Birch fabric. What do you think?

    That would be perfect! You might have to change the size of the block to preserve the largest globes and if it feels to busy to have every block fussy cut, then use an alternating fabric that reads solid. That would be a perfect place for embroidered work to compliment the theme of the quilt. You do have the machine that can work that magic!

    Anael, I personally don't like it..I think it clashes, it's too dark, hard looking.. Gold, blue, light to med pinky purple, even a soft green would be much better...

    DH dropped an envelope yesterday when he went out to get the mail....He brought it in this morning with the newspaper...My MB from JeanieG was in it...A great block, perfectly pieced..will take a photo later in the day...

    QE--nice ideas for Anael's focus fabrics!
    What a great fruit salad of blocks you have GGal! A winner Dublb. This is a reminder I've got to get my MB done--I'm not as ahead of the game as some of you are.
    Going out to pick some apples for my QB. They are Firesides--a nice eating apple as well as baking. They are so good cooked in brown sugar and butter in a cast iron skillet on the stove top--but need to be watchful as the butter sugar mixture can burn easily. Don't ask me how much I just toss
    Then having lunch with my cousin; her sister; their aunt (a 95 yo quilter!) and another cousin so my day is gone.
    Last night decided to rearrange my sewing area so it's all chaos again. Just didn't like the configuration as everytime the phone rang I'd have to walk around the cabinets. Lucky for me they are moveable so I moved them after paying bills and running to town. Now to get everything back into it's proper place.
    Hope to get some garden work done tomorrow. Could be the only day this week as it could "Four letter word inserted" end of the week.
    Have a good day everybody!

    Just saw additional posts--I agree with Honchey- Anael. How about a gold and use the dark fabric (love the gold tones in it) for your corner triangles of one of the snowball blocks.

    Our garden is done for the summer; I cried a bit when I looked at it yesterday...had not looked at it for a long while. Terrible. Black cabbage, dead tomato vines, etc. Not a nice garden at all. Guess its ready for Halloween...although no pumpkins.

    One more piece to finish my SYE block three. I chose to 'do it my way'.

    From the age of 50 we have mammograms every 2 years. I skipped once but then I learned a lady I know was diagnosed with breast cancer after having had her 2 year's check up. So I never skipped again!

    Glad to hear you're improving GrannyQ.

    Lovely block, GrannyQ from DD. It does fit right in.

    Almost finished the SYE block 2, but dh was hungry and I had been 'soaking' the chicken pieces in buttermilk, so I rinsed them off and rolled the pieces in flour and put them into a hot corn oil & pan. Fried it up, baked a big potato in the microwave and made gravy. He was very happy with his lunch. Now I have to make an egg run...taking 14 dozen off to our customers. At a dollar a dozen, it hardly pays for the gas, so we will be canning more chickens soon.

    I love that block from DD, GrannyQ--it really looks so nice with your other blocks. Glad to hear from you and that you're doing well. I'll echo your statement: get your mammogram, my friends. My birthday is in October so that is my bd present to myself.

    DD--great block for GrannyQ

    How old is one when they usually get their first mammogram?? I was thinking 40 something. I have a few years yet...I think.
