    I have been missing for the past few days or at least up to my eyeballs in quilts, I sewed the binding on my Chevron quilt, then decided to push on and finish the quilting on the Tweet quilt, sewed the binding down last night and today have quilted a bed runner, guess what I am doing tonight, yep more binding to be hand sewn and I have sandwiched the quilt that goes with the bed runner. phew I'm tired now, but tomorrow I plan on getting the quilt all quilted and another night of hand sewing. Hope to have pics for you tomorrow if I can nail DH to the floor for five minutes.

    As soon as these sets are finished I have to get back to Once Upon A Time, it only has to be finished by Christmas, no pressure!!!!! and I think DD mentioned to me a quilt for her new bed for Christmas would be great, I am feigning a bad memory at the moment

    Can't wait to see your doll quilt Bev, so glad you are getting it finished.

    Jan...I hope this new girl will work out and you can go FARTing!
    Dubib...nice to hear that you're using your sewing room...ready or not! When is the closing on the old house?
    Carrie...another spectacular block. Great quilt for your DS too.
    Honchey...don't get too down. I just read the life expectancy charts and you can look forward to many pain free years..
    Anael...hope you continue to mend and I am so happy that Bram is now home and happy.
    Jeanie...I've never thought of myself as a hyper person but I do have to have my hands busy when watching TV with my DH...lots if solitaire!
    QNS....house ready, DH helping, BF coming...sounds like your ready for a new look at life.
    Mirabelle...it sounds like you have only one speed in your sewing room....flat out and fast!
    Not much quilting over the weekend and today I'm going to my QB's for a show and tell from the past 6 weeks, working kinks out of a project she is doing, and lunch. We will also be planning our next FART. She has suggested an overnighter to Paducah, KY. I'll keep you posted. Have a good one everyone!

    Now that sounds like a plan, GGal ... an overnighter FART! YES!!!!!!!!!!!
    Maybe better make it more than one sleepover!!

    I'm another ... got to do something when watching TV. It used to be knitting and crocheting. When I am sewing at the machine, the TV is most always on, and often shows I would never watch. The rest of the time if I'm watching TV, I never seem to do just that ... it might be hand sewing binding or GFGs or even reading the paper. I have have been able to "do" the "sit and watch" thing!

    When the TV is on I'm on here or my other forum. I also have been known ta do handwork infront o' the TV, or when travelin' or at the DR's office...ect....

    I would like at ask for prayers for my DD's DH & DBIL. They are brothers & both have had thyroid cancer. DD's DH's thyroid was removed in Feb & he was treated w/radioactive iodine in March. They haven't done another CAT scan nor PET scan sense. His DB had his thyroid removed in July but they were just now about ta treat him w/the radiation this week. They ordered a CAT scan in prep for that. He has 3 more cancerous nodules! (This frightens me on so many levels I can't even begin ta explain.) DSIL's DB is 28 & has 2 kids.

    Dublb, {[(Big HUGS)]} your way from the virtual RV. The "C" word is very scarey word to hear; when (not if, its when) I hear it I am heading to the Cancer Center advertized on TV..the holistic center . In 1930 there was a test made of terminal Cancer patients, treated with fresh fruit and vegetables daily and 50% beat the Cancer. Since my Father died of Cancer at 43 years old and Mother died at 63 years of Cancer, both colon cancer, I have followed a lot of the research being done. Due yourself a favor and call that 800 number listed in that ad on TV. They will help you to cope and understand better, so please call the experts on advice and help. My FIL was not a religious man but they help him with consulting phone call conversation, no charge. What do you have to lose by calling them?? Fight back for their sake and yours and peace of mind.

    I knew that ya'll would be there for me. DD's DBIL lives in Lubbock. DSonIL & DD live in Houston & have a great DR. I asked DD what her DH plans ta do & she said that he called his DR who told him they would do a sonogram just for confirmation that he doesn't have any other tumors. They are plannin' on doin' a pet scan in Dec anyway. I have no news. I just can't imagine how DD's DMIL & DFIL are dealin' w/both son's havin the same cancer.
    I went & prayed & realized that I was over reactin'. I wasn't puttin' these special men inta God's hands. I'm much more peaceful now.

    Dublb, Houston has a great Cancer Center and many have walked away from there Cancer there. Many from Corpus were treated there. Cancer Centers I spoke of are in many USA states that treat the whole body, physically and spiritually. They give Hope and treatment to each individual and their families. Again many are in our Creator's Hands, and we can all hope and pray for you and your family. We are all here for you, so just remember and keep us informed. Miracles do happen in the modern world. So happy you have found peace and your center of being.

    Dublb - what a double whammy for those parents! How very sad! Hopefully the guys can get all the treatment they need and the cancer will be eliminated! Prayers for all of you!!!

    As always nice to have updates from everyone...

    I worked today. Tomorrow will be school, splitting a little firewood and then spending some time in the clubhouse. I would like to get borders on a couple quilts this week.

    Oh you guys I will probably miss the big turnover. Do you all remember watching the odometer rollover?

    Boy did I score today. MB from QNS arrived and "they" are a treasure. But I'm going to keep you in suspense until next week after I return from my trip out East. Lots to do tomorrow before I leave on Wednesday. Car has new tires; oil and fuel filter changed; new windshield wipers; brakes inspected and fixed. I am all set. Plus gas $$ have been decreasing.

    dublb--another group hug is in store. Thanks DD. We can only let go and let God.
    Anael pops in which means she's feeling a little better.
    Honchey try to go with the flow on the pain. Breathe deep.
    GrannyQ prayers out to you and yours as well.
    Janie enjoy the time with the little ones down south.
    mirabelle and Carrie don't overdo it. Keep a steady rhythm okay?
    And for the unnamed--stay well!

    I doubt if I will check in until I'm back. Have a good week. Boy I'm going to miss a lot of eye candy aren't I?
    Don't worry spider.

    What are you trying to tell me QuiltE

    I haven't managed to get DH to stand still long enough today to take pics but they are coming, promise. I have just finished quilting the third set and I have rang Nola (the co-ordinator) and told her I will be dropping mine off next Wednesday so that has given me a time frame to git in and git em done

    I will see if I can pad out the numbers a little more later just for you QuiltE

    Bon voyage, OK.
    Dubib...what a shock for the family. My prayers are with you.
    Mirabelle...you seem to do well even without a deadline. Looking forward to pictures.
    Carrie...glad you have set a comfortable pace for your sewing and can enjoy it. Keep check on the ergonomics so your body will continue to heal.
    QuiltE...so cute. And thank you so much for the pineapple. Yes everyone, I got my MB yesterday from QuiltE but haven't taken a picture to post yet.
    Had a great day with my QB yesterday. We had a regular show and tell of what we had been doing the past 6 weeks, quiet lunch, and then the LQS. Remember I said we were planning a shop hop? She has gone one better. They have a home, more like a lodge, in northern Wisconsin so she is proposing leaving here, hitting three or four shops on the way up and then having a quilt retreat for 4 days up North and hit a couple more shops on the way home. There are also several quilt shops in that area that she will show us. Both if my QBs are having DGD's in the next couple of weeks so this will be in January sometime. We'll see if it pans out. One QB has a DH who has Altzheimers and is really failing, he's in a nursing home, and her Mother who has dementia moved in with her a couple of months ago. She really has her hands full and could use some time for herself but it will depend on what their needs are at the time.
    Today groceries, yard work if it doesn't rain, and more rows together on the FWS. Have a good day all!

    OKSGlad ... just in case you check in ...... have a wonderful trip!! and a safe journey. What a grand time you will have with your DSis.

    MiraB ... whaddya mean, for me? I seem to recall YOU being THE one!

    GGal ... Glad the snails made their way to your door! The getaway retreat sounds absolutely wonderful. Your QB friend sure is dealing with a lot with both her DH and DM. It will be hard for her to leave them, I am sure, but perhaps with some respite care arranged she could feel comfortable to get away and have a much needed break.

    Oh Honchey, I'm so sorry you hurt your knee! Now you have both your left leg and your right knee! Yikes!!! You take care, and I hope your right knee is improving!
