    Jan--sounds like an exciting day at work. I am sure the patients were very interested to know what was going on! Nice that you have a quilt show to look forward to at the end of the week.

    It bothers me too. Maybe when you post the cutting instructions for the blocks you could mention the posting month in the heading too. Some but probably not all will get the idea.

    And then some post a question on where the instructions are, because they fail to go down the list to find the instructions..maybe a later posting for the next month, and just give instructions for say, 'October', and wait to post November the last week of October???, just wondering if that would help...like the last Monday of the month?? Then they post in the discussion, instead of where the photos are suppose to go for each block. Like they totally ignore the schedule that was posted, and post where the instructions are, that is suppose to be just the instructions, nothing else. What do the rest of you think about it???? Can they be removed if it is posted in the wrong place?? And not embarrass anyone?

    Any removing has to be done by a moderator...

    Maybe a refresher course in navigation is required???...I know it's not funny....

    Mirabelle, do you think having the rotary instructions included with the new month's posting would be helpful ?.. there are those that will have them done and those needing more help...this is supposed to be a monthly posting...
    or how about me adding the rotary instructions to the end of the new month when I add the second block photo ?
    You, of course will be given credit...I don't want to rain on your parade...but if this becomes anymore confusing...we may have to go to a single thread with you adding the instructions...What to do???

    I have the feeling some find it easier to ask than to look for themselves. I hope I don't step on any toes here, I don't mean to! I've seen it a lot, asking without looking or asking and the answer has already been posted.

    When pictures are posted in the instructions thread maybe we can ask politely to post in the picture thread as well?

    QNS, I hope they find out what's wrong with your knee. No fun to be in pain all the time, I know all about that

    No new pics of the twins, I didn't get a change to make pics. They were either eating or sleeping My DDIL told me she didn't take nice pics for a while now, guess she's too busy feeding them. At least that's what she told me, she's running around with bottles all day. Isa 4 times, Bram 6 times, fruit or veggies in the afternoon, Mick wants to eat too.......LOL so no time for anything else.
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    What about a separate thread with only the cutting instructions of all blocks? Mirabelle adding instructions every month?

    Anael ... of course we would all delight in your taking pictures of the SewGrands eating and sleeping!!! I bet your DDIL is BUSY with them ... and that will probably get BUSIER too!


    About the Spikes ... good news!
    No ... it's not that I have sewn any since my Topper.

    As some (all?) of you know, I have been wanting to do the quilt in the same yellow as that Topper, though fearful that I have enough fabric. The other day, I sent an email to the QOTS people asking about the background fabric requirements. They responded with this info ...

    Yellow background (corner triangles) - about 3 yards
    White background (the hexie background) - about 2 yards
    1/2 yard cuts of 6 - 10 different fabrics for the piecing

    So being that my yellow would be their white ... and that I have 2 metres plus off cuts, I should be good to go for the background of the Spikes, when I get to them. And with them saying 3 yards for the corner triangles ... looks like there is something else going to happen when we get to the joining stage.

    Yes, I am doing a happy dance!!!!!!
    (and can stop my whining ... til I have to figure out the corner triangle fabric)


    As for the Spike posting problems .... I haven't been following as you know and will catch up when I get ready to start stitching. Seeing your comments ... is it any different than the chattering we used to do in the different FWS/PC threads? Where we would get talking about a previous week's blocks in a later thread? ... or that we would talk in the instruction thread when it should have been in the photo thread? We just lived with it ... not much you can do, without the potential of ruffling feathers.

    We all know that people ask questions without reading all of a thread. That's nothing special to just BOMs. One thought to avoid posts in MiraBs instructions might be to ask PatriceJ to lock the thread. The final comment in MiraBs post could include the general direction to the appropriate thread and reminder to post in the right place.

    Another thought .. has the confusion happened because of the two per month, with only one being bposted earlier in the month, then half way thru for the 2nd block??

    Perhaps I really should not be commenting ... I am reading/hearing your frustrations, and thought maybe some outside perspective might be helpful!



    OKSGlad ... oh thanks for sending that rain to us ..NOT!!!! My rain gauge overfloweth last night which means over 2". Some off and on today again, not much. Then it's supposed to be sunny and bright for the rest of the week. That would make for a nice Thanksgiving weekend here!

    Maybe you need to get a bigger rain gauge! It's sunny and not so warm here today. Box elder bugs and Asian lady beetles are not deterred by the rain! Hope they all fly away soon. Now to lawn mowing. Grass too wet this morning.

    Yes definitely a new larger gauge for next year ... this one is about dead, with the plastic very brittle.

    You've got to get those GrandKids trained on the mower!

    It is becoming frustrating when participants on SYE don't look for the cutting instructions, they are there and easy to find, even after I have posted a link someone else will come along and ask for them again.

    I know we chatted a lot with PC and FWS on both picture and discussion threads but we stayed within the guidelines of posting what and where. Honchey maybe when you start a new thread for November we can post the cutting instructions at the start of the thread, I can e-mail you the cutting info and you can just add it to the first page, maybe that will stop some of the confusion. That should be blocks 5 and 6.

    NinaSue I will continue to e-mail the info to you.

    What does everyone think.

    By the way, Block 7 is now available at Quilting on the Square, guess what I will be doing today

    Oh, I see the 'specialist' for about three or four minutes, who showed me the X-Ray and said, 'arthritis' bone on bone with the right knee, refused to listen about muscles and ligaments. And fitted me with a support for the knee...if insurance does not pay for it, I may have too. Do I feel satisfied, the reply would be a loud "NO" but no one was listening. The PT who fitted me listened better than the doctor and explained things out a little more. There are 'steps' to go through before they will talk about knee replacement. I am not in favor of any 'shots' to the knee. or pills to take for Arthritis...so many are so dangerous.

    Our refrigerator, Maytag, new in 2005, has stopped working in the freezer part, and not as cold in the refrigerator part. So I am cooking the frozen berries and making jell as a priority tomorrow morning...with dh as the 'learning' co-pilot. So much for wanting to finish SYE three...it is coming along slowly and correctly, with a lot of 'ripping'....the ripper and I are on first name basis...remains my best friend...who is consonantly being used 'to do things right'.

    Life is never boring here. Always something in the road way that pops up unexpectedly.

    NinaSue can you get a second opinion, bone on bone is no fun as DH went through that before his hip replacement. I agree with some medication for arthritis playing havoc with your stomach.

    Make sure your co-pilot does all the walking and you can sit and direct, berry jelly sounds yummy

    Oh Nina, I was hoping not for BOB...Had that with the left knee.. eventually had that replaced after having it "scoped"...Right knee has torn meniscus & BOB and am suffering thru it...DR told me get the shots first then eventually replacement...Unfortunately right now for you & me...That's all there is Babe....Ice, ice, & staying off it is the only help.. Having the replacement before the muscles lose their strength & tone is advised...

    Mirabelle, That sounds good to me....I remember the same thing happened with the FWS...I hate to tell u how many PM's I got asking for the rotary cutting instructions after just posting them..

    The 'support' wrap is really helping and making it feel better...feels like I could run and ride a horse again! PT did not think much of the 'horse riding' idea. It would exercise the muscles like the stretch exercises she showed me and a lot more fun! No room for a horse here...just chickens...guineas....ducks...and us quacking up! Too bad I did not get the wrap before the 14 days of misery. No weight loss either in the 14 days...activity cut to zero, but still eating three meals, well balanced, well, mainly protein. Otherwise, the BP meds make me dizzier than usual.

    JeanieG, is it time for the kitchen reveal?

    Honchey, what ever you decide with SYE is ok by me; Mirabelle has been wonderful to post and answer the questions with so much patience and kindness. Thanks to both of you for doing so much.

    Bev I am glad you can see the end in sight, are you going to sell or rent it?

    As I have been house bound since last Thursday morning I have made a lot of progress in my cave. Here is what I made yesterday and today. It just needs 2 borders and it is getting to quilt. The 4 blocks at the top are the bed runner. I had a pattern but boy was it wrong, yardage for the white was 7/8 yard for 9 blocks, I had 1 yard and made 13 blocks with 4 1/2 inches left over, it said 1/2 yard for the sashing, I used 8 inches which included the 3 sashing strips for the bed runner. All the rest was cut from scraps, even the black and white print, it was bits of left over backing fabric. I feel like I made a very very small dent in the stash

    Honchey my DS just had surgery for a torn meniscus, not sure exactly what they did, but the terms they used were cleaned it all out and packed it. This is the first time is almost 14 years he has not had a swollen knee. It was also his third surgery.

    I also finished 12 of my little girls, they are a lot of fun to stitch out but there are a lot of thread changes and over 50,000 stitches in each one. I plan on doing some more, I have 30 designs in total, don't know if I will make that many we will have to wait and see.

    Wow, Mirabelle, Wow. That is a lot of changing thread, but well worth your efforts...so darling, so nice to wake up in the morning and see your progress, even if I cannot begin to match it. Well done. Inspiriting, good way to start my morning off on a good note.

    Not expecting many good notes ahead this morning. Wrapped and put on the 'brace', hope its tight enough to stay up. Have to call Maytag and see 'if' they can service a refrigerator seven years old that has gone out. And go from there.

    First of all ... my apologies Ladies about my Spike comments yesterday.
    I should not have commented being that I have yet to participate.
    I was only trying to help with some thoughts ... and I am truly am sorry.
    I am sure that together you will soon figure out what is best.



    WOW!!! MiraB ... such delicious eye candy to start my day with!

    Do I sense that the quilt and bedrunner is another for Ronald McD?
    Will make for a nice and cheery welcoming in a room for families during such a difficult time in their lives.

    I can't help but smile when I see each of those little girls. Keep showing us as you produce more! What about making all, then use different ones on each of the two quilts? That way the girls can each have fun seeing what the other has on her quilt. Yet the quilts have the sameness in how you finish them. Perhaps is there one block where there are two girls together? That one would be good in both quilts to symbolize their close friendship.

    Some questions about bed runners ..... I don't "get" them!!!!
    So please educate me!!!
    Are they totally decorative? Is there a functional reason?
    What size should they be?
    (translation ... despite not "getting them" ... I have some fabric that I am contemplating using for one!)


    Alas! The sun IS shining ... the rain has gone (I think! I hope!)
    And that rain has taken its toll on our coloured leaves ... many came a-tumbling with the rain and winds.

    QuiltE, a bed runner is for decoration, about 23 inches tall, and the width of a bed quilt, I believe...I have several almost ready for people who cared for FIL.

    Maytag man cannot come until mid or late afternoon. Must run for Ice and see what we can save with ice chests.

    Honchey, there are new ideas in a 'fix' for knees to avoid replacement....in Vail, Co., they draw your blood, mix it with other liquids and replace the mass to keep the bone cushioned, away from bone against bone...costs run about $1000. but it has worked with my SIL who still rides horses.
