    Anael...so sorry to hear about Bram. How are you doing? What is the latest update on your health? Apple pudding looks good. I did make a pan if applesauce yesterday that we can have with it.
    Jeanie/Jan....the new MB fits in perfectly. Since the ice is broken for this month, I'll get mine in the mail this week.
    Now to address the elephant in the room....I realize that everything that we post on line can be found if someone is really looking for it. I do try to keep a pretty low profile because of that and hardly post any pictures on FB so when I found mine here, it freaked me out. QNS and I have spoken about it and worked the situation out so no one has to tip toe around. She didn't post the picture with any malice or ill will and I may have overreacted.
    So moving on....I have the scrappy top all ready for borders and really like it and am about half done attaching the borders to my A4A quilt. I love how it is turning out. I'm hoping to enter it in a quilt show this next spring. I'll post pictures when the borders are on.
    Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt....I'm such a sucker for mystery quilts. Jeanie, please let me know when she posts the fabric requirements. I am getting some finishes and have only 2 BOMs scheduled to start in January so maybe.
    I'm off to make black raspberry jelly with a friend. Probably no quilting today. Have a good one!

    Dreary, rainy day here this morning...great day for quilting! About time to get kids up for school and then heading to the clubhouse. My retreat is just 2 days away. My BF and I are shop hopping our way to the retreat...4-5 shops. I am hoping to find background fabric for my DJ quilt (the one using the squares). I also need to find a couple FQs for my last few MBs.

    Hope everyone has a great day! Maybe by the end of it I will have a quilt (before borders) to show you...I am close to done quilting the rows.

    Hey Ya'll I'm back from Brady. I just sat here & read everything ta git caught up. I can't reply ta everything but I do want ta let Anael know that I'm prayin' for Bram.
    I had a great time in Brady. When we got there we realized right away that the place needed ta be mowed. Some o' the clump grass was almost 2 1/2 ft. tall. At least clump grass is thin & wispy. Actually the 2 lots were didn't have very much clump grass in the middlle so it was only about 6 inches tall there & had some flowers bloomin' so Dh only mowed the edges o' the lots but he did mow the lawn around the house. He hurt his foot a couple o' weeks ago & had ta mow very carefully.
    Aren't DGK's wonderful? There is just somethin' wonderful about havin' 'em there.
    It started rainin' on Sat night about midnight & rained most o' the trip so we mostly just watched movies & played a few games. Our TV isn't hooked up ta cable nor does it have an antenna so all we can do is watch movies on it. I kinda like that.
    I heard that we got rain here in Midland too. The Official amount is 1/2 an inch but my Aunt said that she got 2 inches. My hope is that it rained on the flood planes for the lakes. The last time it rained The lakes stayed static. We used as much water as the lakes received from the rains. I'm hopin' that they rise this time.

    Ggal...everyone must be busy getting ready for cooler weather (well except Mirabelle). Fall has officially arrived here. Lots of farmers in the fields, it rained last night/this morning though, so not sure how much they'll get done.

    DD is not happy about doing school today so we are taking a little break. DS got his done at least.

    Not sure if I told the group, but I see the surgeon again Thursday to "see what my options are" since PT isn't helping...I sometimes think they just like having office visits since I thought my appt 3 weeks ago was to talk about options. Maybe he will actually do an MRI this time...that is what I am going to push for. At least then I *know* if I have to have surgery or if it is just inflammation and should get better...not knowing for sure is hard since I need to make plans for the next few months.

    Latest update on Bram: according to the doctors it might be learned behavior in order to get attention! He found out if he pukes he will get attention so he pukes. Same with not emptying his bottle. So they will try to 'unlearn' this behavior. Tomorrow my DS and DDIL will have a talk with the pediatrician.

    GG, I'm sorry I wasn't around much. I was very worried about Bram, haven't been home much as I have to get ready for my appointment in hospital on Thursday. If things go wrong I have to stay a week in hospital so I have to tidy the place a bit, run errands, making sure KK has enough to eat.....I won't be around much in the next few days either. Even when I will go home after the procedure I will be totally out from all the drugs so I will surface again on Saturday I guess
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    I have ta tell ya'll a story that happened on Thurs evenin'. I went ta the garage ta throw my drink can in the recycle bin. As I came back I stepped on the threshold & it fit just perfect on the arch o' my foot. It felt sooooo good. All o' the pain in my back just melted away for a few min.s. So I just stood there with my arms hangin down & rocked back & forth, kinda messaging my arches. I looked down & my long gray hair fell down in front o' me. #2DS was shavin' in the bathroom. (He does that about every 3 days if he needs it or not. LOL) Anyway he had the bathroom door open as he did this. When he was through he looked right down the hall ta the garage. He said "OMGosh Mama! Ya look like ya came right outta a horror movie!"

    dublb-just in time for Halloween too.--wickedly
    Well sounds like Bram is a smart little one! Now the hard part for Mom and Dad--trying to ignore a vomiting child.
    Hope your surgery goes well Anael.
    And Carrie I think they will "have" to do an MRI before surgery. You are too young for all of this.
    GGal it must be the time of year. The days are shorter and I can feel my self diagnosed SADD starting to kick in. The nice fall days are great but the dreary ones like today after a half inch of rain are harder.
    Honchey and here I thought you were going to dig in your own scrap pile! Don't worry I do the same thing; but am getting picky about which scraps I take
    9P count up to 530. Switched gears and am now sewing on some 2 1/2" squares to make a scrappy 8" checkerboard block--there's a EQ planned for them.
    Busy week--Quilt guild last night; QB quilt day tomorrow; church dinner to make 2 pies for and then make gravy for the meal. Always something!
    Don't worry spider.

    Honchey, I have a 'brace' that protects the knee, and has a hinge in the back that bends with the knee.with a hard piece on each side and is adjustable around. Knee high jeans are fine with it or shorts but long legged jeans seem to 'catch' on the brace and hampers movement...and its getting too cold for shorts!Brrrrr.

    Thanks, Anael, for the update on Bram. Good luck to you; hope to hear from you Saturday.

    Dh just brought the rural mail in from our box on the highway, and it contained a small package from Australia....Mirabelle, the block is beautiful. Will try to take pictures later after I warm up our 'deep' freeze air in our house!! And I gotta find time to make my October MB before the first!!

    forgot to tell that the block is from Carol Doak's 40 bright and bold blocks. Thank you, Mirabelle.

    Love your story Dublb, just right for this month and Halloween.

    So glad you like the block NinaSue, I pondered over it for a while, traditional but unusual had me stumped but then I found this pattern.

    Had a busy day yesterday, went grocery shopping, got home put everything away, I always take everything out of my fridge and clean it all out every week, then I decided to defrost my upright freezer and tidy it up. Cooked Roast Lamb for dinner tonight, cooked a Beef Casserole and portioned it out for myself for the next week. Cooked the dog food for the next week, swept and mopped the whole house. Finished quilting another Ronald McD quilt and bed runner (pics later) then while cooking dinner decided to defrost my chest freezer. After dinner sewed the binding on the quilt and bed runner, should have gone to bed then but the tv program I was watching was interesting, got to bed at midnight. Boy what a day.... Oh and DH woke me at 3.30am to say goodbye to me.

    I wonder why I have a fuzzy head this morning and am taking a while to get moving

    There is a upside to all my activity yesterday, no housework or cooking for a week so lots of sewing yay

    Anael--glad to hear they have some answers on Bram's health.

    Honchey--you always get some good bags of scraps. I bet you will be glad to have all your appts out of the way for a while. Have fun at work.

    QNS--praying you can find a comfortable position and get a good night's sleep.

    Dublb--that is too funny...nice you found a good stretching place too.

    OK--I am sure they will need to do an MRI, I just wish they would have scheduled that before a 2nd appt with the surgeon...seems like they just want me to have to pay for another office visit. Did you decide how to quilt the project you asked about a few days ago?

    Mirabelle and QNS--what a great MB! It goes so well with the others.

    Mirabelle--you had a VERY productive day! Wow!! I will be working on laundry and getting the house clean tomorrow afternoon as well as finishing my packing...I like to leave things clean so that my family can have a head start before I get home again.

    I was able to get the quilting all done on the main part of DS's quilt today. I decided I want something different for the inner border so will pick that up tomorrow and get it cut to take to the retreat.

    So this is what I have done today. 12 Fat Quarters and some black homespun turned into 12 crazy blocks, I will use 9 for the quilt and the other 3 for the bed runner. I have saved all the offcuts to use in the sashing of the bed runner to bring it up to size. The quilt I will just add a 1/2 inch sashing then a small border and it will be done..Its nice and bright

    Mirabelle--you did a great job on that. I am guessing you cut all the FQs the same and then just mix/match to get the blocks? Very nice. When is your next meeting? Do you think others will have even one set done?
