    Food for Thought
    "Life can only be understood backwards,
    ... but it must be lived forward."
    ~~Soren Kierkegaard~~



    A new way of saying this old one ...
    Learn from the past.
    Live in the present.
    And prepare for the future.

    Or: Yesterday is history, tomorrow is the future, but today is the present....a gift for all of us to enjoy the one time it comes around in lifetime. No matter how good or bad, we never have a repeat of any day in all of our lifetimes. Here today and gone tomorrow. Life is too short, so enjoy it. No matter what you do, find ways to enjoy it and forget and forgive others...to repeat: Life is toooooo short.

    Thanks everyone for the advice on the 'slice', now to keep all the white on one side and blue on the other. Just messed up one and remaking it.

    I know where ILean when; ILean on my Hurricane cane as I walk...trying to 'baby' my knee and it still hurts like crazy of a night, even to the sheets touching it. Anxious to see what the specialist finds on Monday afternoon.

    An easy solution ... is to do an assembly line, and do all five of the same piece addition, one after the other, then on to the next piece for all five.

    Yes, all good quotes to appreciate life!

    I took another day off. LOL First I had ta take #2DSon ta the urgent care clinic ‘cause he has puss pockets on his tonsils. I had intended ta go ta the Quilt show durrin’ that time. So when I got back I decided ta call DM & go ta the quilt show instead o’ cleanin’ the old house. All we need ta do ta finish is the front bathroom. I’ll do that on Mon.

    So glad you had a day away from the "old" house dublb. Did you find anything interesting at the Quilt Show? Hope #2DS is going to be ok, sounds like those tonsils need to come out. (I know, they don't take them out like when I was a child, I had mine out at age 7.)

    Bev so glad you are nearing the end of your cleaning, take a good long rest and recover properly, there is only one you in this world.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, sometimes I feel like such a bi%^& for not sharing, but then it is so one sided..

    Not having a car at my disposal has been very good for accomplishing a lot in my sewing room, here is what has been going on.
    First I finished my embroidered Peirrot quilt
    Second I sewed three more rows to my mini star quilt
    Third or at the same time the embroidery machine has been humming along with some gorgeous blocks.

    Now to baste a quilt for DD, she is giving it as a gift next year.

    Wow, Honchey, I wish it did. Started with Quilte's advice, first two blocks were fine, then the blue jumped on the wrong side again. Hope for better luck tomorrow. Have to laugh at myself and how I see things...it a real challenge.

    Your work, Miraballe, is marvelous. Top of the line...wonderful, beautiful, just perfect. Love it all.

    Honchey ... great mirror shot!!

    MiraB ... my goodness you have been busy! Do you ever slow down? Your Pierrots are cute and the new Little Ladies are just plain fun!

    DublB ... sometimes you just have to slow down to finish the last of the work! When I moved ten years ago, I just got the point of exhaustion ... no one else to do it. You have been so fortunate to have so much help.

    JeanieG ... speaking of which ... are all things finished and settled now with all your house "work"?

    QNSue ... patience!

    No hero for me ..... it was just what had to be done.


    And this wasn't a regular house-to-house move. I had to finish emptying the farm of stuff ... and downsize from a 500+ sq ft farm house to >1500 sq ft. It wasn't just the packing, cleaning and move, but the decisions of what to eliminate and what to do with it all that took really took the toll !

    No wonder I say they can take me out of here in a pine box ...... and someone else can deal with all the stuff!!!

    Honchey - that is really a neat mirror. I have seen them, but never used one! Great!!!

    Mirabelle - gosh, you just don't slow down! Wonderful new quilt, and darling embroidered ladies too!

    QuiltE - the last side of the backsplash will be installed on Monday, then they will grout it! That is it!!!!!! Hurrah!!!! Expect photos of finished kitchen next week everyone!

    QNS...I hope you can get some relief for your knee. From the looks of your kitchen and all that has been accomplished the past couple of weeks, it doesn't sound like you have given it much rest. I too like your SYE wedge.
    Jeanie...hooray for the last if the construction! I too have several books I thought I just had to have. I've used a couple of them and they do have such good eyecandy. I'm waiting to find the new fall Quiktmaker magazine where I've purchased them in the past but without success. I might have to break down and subscribe to them.
    Mirabelle....what magic you make with thread and fabric! I would love to be a fly on your wall for a week. I know I would learn so much.
    Carrie....a neat picture if the plane and quilt. What a nice tribute to a lasting friendship by your DH.
    Jan...hope they find your replacement soon so you don't have to drive to work in the snow this winter. I know how you love that.
    Janie...I'm happy you like the block. It was my first try at doing the flying geese block with the Quilt in a Day method and I like how they turned out. Sorry that you're not feeling well.
    OK...how nice that you are finding some relief from Ilean. I'm looking forward to seeing your new sewing room setup.
    Bev...you can see the finish line! Will you do a sale by owner? I'm anxious to see your new sewing room set up. It has nice space. Have you used your embroidery machine much?
    DD...I see that had a lot if snow in the western mountains. Any in your neighborhood? I'm glad you liked those links. So many ways with such different results with the same blocks.
    QuitE....have you got Frosty 2&3 figured out? Your Thanksgiving is coming up too, isn't it? These months are flying by so fast!
    Honchey...send those blues away, don't let them stay. Easy for me to say, huh? Just take care of yourself. You're special.
    Anael...poor Bram. He is a fighter though so I'm sure he will make it though this. I'm glad they found the infection now to find what's causing it. And you....may you soon feel much better.
    All at once my toe is not so tender and I can actually walk with little notice of it hurting. I started putting the mystery quilt together last week and realized I got the 4 patch turned wrong but with 4 in each if the 6 blocks I thought I could get away with leaving it that way. Well I also found that my focus blocks, having cut them with a different brand ruler, were 1/4 inch too large and and my fudging wasn't working too well so it is now my disaster quilt which I will eventually take apart and do right. Maybe I'll practice FMQing today. I'm quilting from the back following the design on the backing. Have a good day, all!

    GGal ... I guess a fly on the wall would be more hopeful than getting "into" MiraB's muddled brain! I keep imagining ... imagine if we all were to get together IRL, and all the productivity (and talking!) that would come from that!

    JeanieG ... you too can have one of those mirrors. Mine are two from the $ $tore. Look in the school supplies for locker mirrors. Mine were edged with plastic with a magnet on the back. I duct taped them together, so they can open around at whatever angle I want to get the # reflections needed as a preview. I keep it in my truck, just in case a OBW screams at me when in an LQS ... though I can see it moving to the sewing room when I get going at the Spikes. So glad the work will soon be done ... party time!

    YES Ladies, it WILL happen. I will be doing the Spikes!

    GGal ... Last year's Fr♥sty has become Patient Frosty ... he's on my front door, patiently modelling fabrics for his siblings. It's getting narrowed down ... I think! Yes, Thanksgiving is next weekend, with Monday as a Stat holiday here. "Adopted" family GTG will be Saturday night and I have my onions bought for the traditional Creamed Onions that the family devours at these gatherings! I was honoured, when I was entrusted with the recipe a few years ago. Oh no, a disaster quilt ... I can't believe that! Look forward to seeing your backwards FMQing today!

    Rainy, icky, miserable, drizzly day here today.
    No doubt you know what that means? ... a quilty day!

    I think I will dedicate this one to
    GGal and her Disaster Quilt...
    .... for some inspiration to step away from the pattern
    and turn that ugly duckling into something beautiful!!

    Or send it on to one of us! Sometimes it takes a fresh look to change it around; GG, you could post it here and we would all help out.

    You must have a daily calendar, QuiltE, with all those 'quotes'. American Quilt Store of Denver, Co., always over used the word 'possibilities' before they closed their doors. Now Fons and Porter have started doing that.

    I am a couple of hours away from the Missouri Star Quilt Co., so anyone coming as a guest here, we could visit there without using their B&B. And Fons and Porter at Winterset, Iowa, as well. Off to the quilt room to try, try again. After completing the five more pieces of SYE, there's the MB to complete for the month of October....;have a 'hate' relationship with those that have posted ahead in SYE...and in the wrong places...guess they failed kindergarten and how to read the rules. Life goes onward and upward. Interesting how they have done their SYEs.

    Goodmorning Ladies

    Yes! I will take pics of Pups! I knew dear QuiltE would be asking they are six weeks on Wednesday, I should have got around to it by now. HEY quess what? LOL poor DH he is such a silly thing.... our Cat that we were given last year... had kittens two days ago! it is 4miles to nearest neighbors house, and 1 1/2 miles to nearest dairy. Dh thought that being that far away was some kind of birth control! I guess I need to talk with him about "birds and bees"

    Nina Sue! I LOVE your SYE... you seem to be getting along easier than me! Simply Amazing!!!

    Mirabelle I LOVE your new quilts! it is always FUN to SEE what you come up with next isnt it interesting that some children just never grow up? and even as adults think "I see it therefore I can have" mentality??? hmmmm you are just to darn sweet! just say NO

    Im off and away again today... sigh! talk soon. BYE

    DDamsel ... and I suppose too that your DH thought that said cat was a HE? Yeaaaaaaaaaa for kitties! Keep them away from Sugar and the kids. Yessss puppppppy pics please! LOTS of them! BTW ... how's your FWS finish coming? And where are you off and away to, again today??

    QNSue ... no, not a daily calendar ... though I do get a couple of daily emails that include quotes. Sometimes they are oh so good. Others, well, why bother sending them? I've always been a quote junky, so I tend to see them most anywhere!

    Hang in there QNS - you will get them done. I have not started #4 yet, think I'll go have a look at my fabric and start picking out which ones I want to use.

    Still having hot winds here for the 3rd day. It is suppose to stop today, and possibility of rain coming down from the North on Wednesday and Thursday. Amazing how the weather can change so quickly. It was 91* here yesterday!

    QNS--I like your newest SYE piece...great idea to get different shades by flipping fabric.

    I've decided to set SYE aside until I know what is happening with my shoulder. I have MBs to finish and 3 different quilts I need to get done in case I have to have surgery. My Oct and Feb MBs are finished, Nov MB is all cut out and ready to sew. I have Dec and Jan patterns and fabric chosen.

    Mirabelle--those are some more great projects. What's the plan for the little girl blocks?

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Carrie, I can relate...at least, I know when my cataract will be removed...and that there will be 72 long hours of blindness. I will find out tomorrow what is wrong with my knee and what they will do or not do...after 14 weeks, its about time.You are better organized than I. Have not touched October MB yet. Still working on Oct. 3rd SYE block.

    GGal being a fly on the wall could be dangerous, just ask NinaSue, she swats them with dead accuracy Take a break from your "disaster" quilt and think about it for a while, you might come up with a solution instead of reverse sewing. Isn't it interesting though that different rulers can make a huge difference.

    QuiltE my brain is only muddled sometimes most of the time it is running on empty, bit like my fuel tank
    Yay for jumping on the Spike ride, knew you couldn't resist playing with us.

    NinaSue I haven't purchased anything from Missouri Star as they wouldn't reply to my e-mail regarding shipping costs but I do enjoy watching Jenny's tutorials. She is very talented. Yes I agree with you regarding the early posts for Spike blocks

    Ddamsel love the kitty story, gave me a good laugh this morning.

    JeanieG your house must be almost completed by now, is everything getting back to normal for you.

    Carriem make sure you download your Spike blocks for when you get back to them, I hope you don't have to have surgery but if you do I wish you all the best. I am quilting a single bed quilt at the moment, started it yesterday but am only quilting for an hour at a time, so far so good.
    As to a plan for the girls, DD's new little girl has a cousin who is 6 and they are very close so I thought I would make them matching quilts, they won't get them for some time though, I have to stitch out 30 designs but a design is starting to form in my muddled brain, just have to put it down on paper.

    Have a great day everyone, I have 2 more days of quiet before DH comes home.

    MiraB ... thanks for the confidence, though I have not done any more Spikes! Just that first one I did back in the summer, then turned it into a Topper. Take note though that I WILL be doing them. Just too many other things to prevent me from getting into them yet. Oh my, now quilts for Little Cousin as well!!

    Just popping in to say "hi" and to tell you again how much I enjoy reading all these posts. It takes a while to catch up. Everyone is so busy and productive, lots of beautiful pics to look at. I feel like I'm sitting in the RV with all of my friends.

    Spent all day Friday at work with DEA agents, local & state police, and sheriff sorting out the mess with the stolen prescription pads. Apparently she was a busy gal--the police found forged and called-in rx's from the third day she worked in the office. I'm still scheduled to work all week except for Friday. Going to a local quilt show. Have a great week everyone, I'll catch up with you in the RV in the evenings for a nice glass (or two) of wine.
