    Oh dear, Honchey ... poor you! I bet the Grands and all their pats helped you feel better (at least a wee bit). As for the men!!! ggrrrrrrr!! Do they send you to therapy in advance to help you prepare? (they do here)


    DublB ... perhaps this could be a centre medallion with your ponies? Great price! (or the backing?)

    Guess what? I skipped WORK today ... and quilted!
    Another practice runner ... and have the quilting almost done.

    For those of you that need some seasonal menu items ....

    For some reason, I can see Honchey making the Shepherd's Pie for her Grands.
    And no doubt, DDamsel would be up to it for her Kids and the Grands too!
    Could also be little snowmen this winter!!

    The Black Cinnamon Syrup got my attention ....... the cinnamon part, that is!
    Instead I will opt for adding some to some Maple Syrup as I'm bound to like it.
    Anything cinnamon ... yesssssss!

    The brace I received for my right knee is wonderful support for it...wonder if they would give you one, Honchey? Men hate to have their football interrupted, but you should have said, "I need you" and they would have come....you have to 'coach' the men a bit now and then. Good luck on both knees.

    I rested a couple of hours and dh came in with the mail and was worried about how much I was sleeping and if was "OK" or not. Men. Wondered if he were keeping track of how much computer time I had before the nap. Dhs are in 'training" most of your married life; they forget things, thinking about themselves too much....I told bf last year I finally learned why wives referred to their husbands as "Old F...t"...

    Seems not all MBs are being 'exposed', guess we have to have patience...all in good time...take care, quilting friends.

    Hey D_D...I am a McSister too (if you use my last name). Love your shurgs. Cute puppies too!!

    QNS--cute chicken pic. Glad that you are able to get some rest, even is DH is checking on you.

    Honchey--sorry to hear about your other knee now! Praying it heals quickly so you can tend to the other one.

    Mirabelle--I am sure all your donations will be well received.

    Sorry I'm not replying to all....shoulders a little sore tonight so I should probably stop typing and ice it....

    Hugs!

    GGal your trip sounds wonderful, your QBs certainly have a lot going on but I am sure you will enjoy your retreat and farts when you get to go.

    QuiltE sorry no Halloween celebrations for me, don't yell at me but I don't do anything, although when we lived in the Northern Territory my DH and I spent all night sitting in our front yard as we had been given the heads up that local children had pooled their money and bought cartons, not the dozen cartons but the 20 dozen cartons of eggs week prior and were targeting some homes and ours was on the list. As we had just had our house painted we felt like we had to protect our property from vandals

    Honchey, so sorry to hear about you hurting your knee, but men,well all I can say is that they are never trained they way they should be.. I was at the grocery store this morning and as I was walking to my car I heard a crash and a child screaming. There are 4 men who sit nearby at a café every morning and all they could say was "are you alright love". I parked my trolley at my car and walked over and this young girl had toppled her trolley and her young child had been sitting in it and got an awful fright. I helped her pick up her groceries and put them in her car while she comforted her child. These men never got up off their A$%^& to help.

    QuiltingNinaSue love the chook and please make sure that DH helps while you recover from your surgery and in the future too

    DDamsel absolute love the cute puppy, but I have to keep telling myself "no more dogs", just too heartbreaking when they have to leave you..

    Now on to the eye candy, nailing DH to the floor was more of a problem than I thought it would be but this morning finally got him...

    The first photo is of my Jelly Roll Chevron, it used 3 jelly rolls, 2 for the body of the quilt and 1 for the final border.
    The second photo is my Tweet quilt, the embroideries are called You're Tweet, I hope the quilting shows up, I tried to imitate the swirls that are in the embroidered and I did a micro stipple in the small blocks. Hope you like them

    Now everyone tell me a BIG STORY and say I could equal that piecing and quilting....not in this life! Beautiful work Mirabelle, just perfect and beautiful.

    Cute puppies, but no more dogs...just cats for us, thank you.

    QuiltE, my Shepard dish is simpler: ordered it from Schwan's.

    Loved the knitting, shugs, etc., DD.

    Mirabelle - some more beautiful treasures you created. I'm with QNS - just look at the evenness (is that a word??) of that quilting. And I bet you did it free hand. I would have to draw all that on the quilt, and it still would not look that even! Those little birds are so cute too!

    CarrieM ... ice ice ice! I hope your shoulder is better in the morning.

    MiraB ... Oh dear with your Halloween fright! Things are usually pretty calm around here ... at least I hope it stays that way. That's all I do for Halloween ... I don't get "into" it! The panel was just too cute, so I had to have it and then like a good quilter, used every bit of it in different ways. I used to buy treats the first few years I was here, but after a few yrs with no kids at my door, I quit buying. I fear that one of these times I will get caught with some surprise visitors and then I will have egg on my face ... and hopefully none tossed at my home.

    Thanks for all the pics and closeups, MiraB. Your Chevron is a winner. The scrappy effect from the JRs is far nicer than the organized striped look that most are. Though your Tweet really takes the prize this time! You always amaze me with your quilting ... I'm with JeanieG on the "evenness" of those sashing designs. Do you mark the spacings? Have a stencil? However, I am also betting it's all freehand! Please Thank MrMiraB for being such a patient quilt holder so we can enjoy the fruits of your labour!

    QNSue ... I had never made Shepherd's Pie til a couple years ago. Not sure why? Lucky you to have someone to make it for you, though it really is so easy ... and so tasty! When I do, I make lots, and freeze some single portions.


    Good Night, Dear Friends!

    I've been workin' on that DQ that I was havin so many border troubles. I got it all quilted yesterday & have the bindin' half way on taday. Since the main design is a dragonfly I gotta hand embroidery the antenna on it. Dh was home taday so we ran a lotta errands. One o' which was 2 hours spent at the vet's office. My "puppy's" flu is tryin' ta settle in her lungs. She got another shot taday. She got one on Fri & one on Sat. She's actually a 4 year old 100lb Lab. She thinks she is a puppy though.

    Bev I hope your "puppy" is all better soon, it is very traumatic taking our pets to the vet.

    Thank you everyone for all your kind words, as to the quilting, the design in the pink sashing I marked a centre horizontal line and then spacing lines every inch so I knew where to "hit" to start the top or bottom curve and where to "hit" for the centre mark. I hope that makes sense. That was the only marking done on this quilt.

    I am about halfway through the 4th Ron McD quilt and I am looking after my shoulder, spoke to a massage therapist and they advised hot and cold packs so that is what I do every night. I sleep all night without waking in pain and it only starts to niggle a little by late afternoon. Have been doing this for the last few days, it won't fix the problem but if the pain is lessened I am all for it.

    Mirabelle--some more pretty quilts...great quilting.

    For icing, my PT suggests filling "Dixie" cups (small paper cups; 3oz) with water and freezing. Then you tear off a little of the cup and rub/massage the ice directly on your shoulder (making sure to keep moving it around)...she says you will go through 3 "stages" and then can stop...cold, burning, numbing. It takes less than 5 minutes and for me works better than just laying an icepack on my shoulder. This will work for any sore spots...knees, elbows, etc. I have several in my freezer and restock when they get low.

    Dublb--sorry to hear you have a sick "puppy". Our 80+lb dogs (also 4) think they are puppies too.

    carriem thanks for the Dixie cup method, will definitely give it a try. When I was a child we used to buy Dixie cup icecreams, but haven't seen them for a long time. Will go to the dollar store and get some today, unfortunately they will be empty

    Time to pack the car and head to patchwork today, will be home for lunch, chat to you all later.

    QuiltE only 9 to go

    DS got his room all clean today and put new sheets on his bed, so he got his quilt a little early. His room is a little loft...the wall at the back of the quilt is partial, on the left are the stairs...we need to paint (the purple was there when we moved in...not his first choice!).

    D_D--great pictures. You made the wedding dress too...right?

    I spy D-D, next to the last on the left side of the bride, as you look at the picture....thus the two little girls with dark hair belongs to her as well. What a wonderful picture of everyone and the kids are adorable!

    Carrie, the quilt looks at home, welcoming, cozy, and delightful in the space. Perfect.

    Hello All ... late getting here today again. I was gone early fro appointments. Then came back and couldn't get on the internet. Ended up, I called the techies and finally am back online!

    DublB
    ... I laughed about your 4yo still thinking she's a puppy. We had a Goldie x Scotch Collie who thought she was a puppy right up to 10 yo!

    MiraB ... Yup, he quilt marking made total sense to me. Will have to try that sometime. Maybe try the hot/cold routine at mid day? Look forward to seeing your McD finishes.

    CarrieM and MiraB... my goodness you brought back memories. I haven't heard of "Dixie Cups" for years! They had their Canadian plant in the town near where I was raised. The plant had a landmark ... their water tower was none other than a giant Dixie Cup! Eventually left town and I guess, went back to the States for production. If you don't want the drippy method, a bag of popcorn can be frozen and recycled each time. Though you wouldn't get the cold-burn effect of the solid ice.

    DDamsel ... what a good looking McSis group and oh my, how you all look so much alike! I MUST be a McSis ... red hair!

    QNSue ... I hope that you feel you are organized, and will allow yourself a quiet-me-day for tmro/Thursday. What isn't done, can wait. It's more important that you just slow down tmro and ENJOY the day, in whatever way you want with as little WORK as possible!






    MiraB ..... I'll turn it over to you .... 4 to go!

    DDamsel what a gorgeous photo and thank you NinaSue for picking her out for us. Wow 10 girls in the family, do you have any brothers, don't think they would have stood a chance against all of you I was an only girl so I am really jealous of your sisterhood The little ones are so cute and I love their dresses.

    I only have one more set to quilt and I am finished done and dusted, so had better get my butt into gear.

    Who will get to 7000 ?????????????????

    ummmmm I think you have bean busting your butt in productivity, already!
    ................ just be sure to do a final group shot before you send them on their way to McD House!



    DDamsel ... Last night, I was thinking much the same as MiraB ... any brothers? .... and then the next thought was, poor Dad ... 11 women to please!

    Honchey and GrannyQ ... oh my goodness, look at that amazing Dresden Plate, complete with 20 blades! And do I Spy some FFC fabric in there? What a beautiful set of blocks you have and will make for such a lovely old fashioned quilt. Just as you wanted!

    Honchey ... I'm sure you remind your son of the Trick? or Treat? question regularly!



    Here's hoping we can see some more eye candy today for our
    Treats ........... not Tricks!




    And now, to roll over the post-odometer .......
