    Yes, QuiltE, your FCC fab is in 2 of the blades...I forgot to mention that...I'm still trying to find a MB that I put in a safe place to complete what I have so far...I'll take a group photo later..camera battery is charging right now...

    Moved trash can in my bathroom...disgusting dead bug haven, so had to haul vacuum to the rescue; went into guest room to make the single bed, disgusting dead bug haven under the head of the bed, so vacuumed that, and found more under the nightstand...vacuumed that. Men never move furniture to vacuum! Its got to be clean!!!

    Thanks for all the kind words. And prayers.

    Beautiful block, Honchey from GrannyQ. She told me she had made MBs ahead to be able to sent as time passes. She is in my nightly prayers, since she and her husband are fighting cancer.

    And the latest chicken to cross the street:Isn't she sweet & adorable?

    QuiltE I didnt know you were a Redhead! definitely a McSis

    Yes! I have brothers too! some of my siblings are allergic to people, and some are allergic to cameras.... so 5 are missing from the photo. I KNOW thats ALOT of kids "what were they thinking?"
    Good Guess NinaSue, the lovely Sis that you picked out is my next little sister, she is my bestest buddy, even when she makes me sew doll clothes for days!
    Im the tallest at 5' 9" out of all the sibling except my oldest brother, he is taller by only an inch or so!

    Mirabelle my Mom was the only girl with four brothers, she always told us to be nice to each other, loving and kind because she had NObody to play with when she was a child.

    Oh Candice how far apart were you & your siblings? WOW! My DGDas had 9 siblings. His DM nursed 'em for 5 years as "birth control". The first few were 10 & 12 months apart. She had 2 set' o' twins. There is only one o' his siblings left.
    They gave him a horse ta "give up his dinner."

    Thanks for the correction D-D...fourth in from the right then at 5'9"...I am 5'8" so I know how hard it is to 'hide' in a crowd...almost impossible. It really looked like you all were enjoying yourselves and each other. Did not have any sisters at all; no granddaughters. Always envied my 13 cousins...that was the family size I loved...but unfortunately they are not all living today...do not know their offspring at all. Nor my brother's 'cause we never got an invite to their family gatherings..reason from him: we were not religious enough to suit him. And I would not make it up to Heaven, according to him. Failed the notice that he had become a God or God's right hand man.

    So can I adopt that large sisterhood, too? My Aunt had red hair, and Gram always said I had her temperament! Wonder what she meant by that statement?????LOL!!!

    Oh I love the Dresden Plate Patterns! I just wish I loved applique! My arthritic fingers just do not like hand work, my do they ache! That is gorgeous Honchey and GrannyQ!

    DD...beautiful gathering of sisters! I was classmate to a girl that had 15 siblings. Always room for another one. I had 6 brothers...no sisters..if was 5th. When I was born, it was reported that my older brother's comments was, "Oh Boy. A dishwasher."
    GrannyQ...what a beautiful Dresden plate for Honchey. Can't wait to see them all together
    QNS...Your eyesight must still be pretty good to see the bugs. Rest well tonight and have a successful day tomorrow.
    QuiltE...yup you did the rollover. I checked and we started this thread 11/20/2012. We are a chatty bunch.
    Carrie...Nice you shared your PT suggestion. We can all benefit from that after too much quilting in one day.
    Mirabelle...again such nice quilts. Now on to the Christmas quilt for DD?
    Jeanie...was your kitchen ever worth waiting for or what!!!! I love it. My DH started redoing the kitchen 2 years ago and all I have is less counter top with gaps where he wanted to change it, no doors for under the sink, and multicolored drawer fronts! He doesn't trust anyone else to do a good job although he could easily afford to have someone do it...enough rant. That's why I spend so much time quilting I guess...I can create my own world of beauty.
    Here is the picture of my MB from QuiltE along with the family of blocks. Then I finished the quilt for my DGS's friend that has been so encouraging to him. BTW...2 years later and they are still waiting for their injuries to be classified so far as disability is concerned so that they can be discharged. Name:  QuiltE.JPG

    Well we passed the 7000 mark

    JeanieG what a beautiful kitchen, I bet you don't want to use it now and get it dirty

    GGal another beautiful MB, we are starting to get a glimpse of what our quilts will look like with more blocks being delivered. Also a beautiful quilt for someone special.

    AND important news drumroll please. I received a MB in the mail today, thank you so much DDamsel it is beautiful and as soon as I can find my camera I will take a pic. I think DH has hidden it on me I have pressed it and it is hanging with its friends and it is perfect

    YAY wonderful blocks GGal I think Im really liking the scrappy pinapples

    WOW, im glad you like the block Mirabelle! I get quilters anxiety and just dont know if I can send out my humble work to such accomplished ladies like yourself. I feel bad looking at the picture... nobody else used green! oh, well Im glad you like it.

    Gladie! I received a MB from Dear Gladie yesterday, goodness that lady keeps busier than I do! I will post a pic today.

    ALL, I really appreciate how lucky I am to have the association of my QuiltingSisters, you are each dear to me and the mystery blocks was the best idea ever!

    MiraB and DDamsel ... oooolalala! That's an Amazing Star ... you didn't tell us about your designer talents, DDamsel! So what shall we name this new star? I bet you have all sorts of innovative ways to put these blocks together, MiraB.

    DDamsel ... yeppir, it is true, a redhead am I, though now a greying one! And to add to my McSis ability, I was a McK before marriage! Thanks for directing us to the "real" you in the photo!

    JeanieG ... your kitchen is amazing and I am SO envious! I bet you are so happy with it and love being in it. I really like the size of that countertop with the sit up area. It'll be so multi-functional. What part about your new place do you like the BEST?

    GGal ... I couldn't help but laugh at your brother's comment about your arrival. Hopefully you made sure that all the brothers did their part at washing dishes! What a great guy quilt for your DGSF. The colours are perfect. Hope you like your pineapple addition.

    Got an unexpected day off today--no electricity in the whole town. We had a horrible storm last night--rained so hard I thought my windows would break and 60-70 mph winds. Scarey. We have power in my town so I went to work, walked in and black as night in the office. Doc said use your cell phones, cancel who you can reach, then hang a sign in the window and enjoy the rest of the day. No computers, no office phones=day off. I like it.

    I've spent all morning getting caught up on all the posts since last week. We're over 7000--who would have thought that? What good friends you've all become and I love checking in with all of you. So many things going on: the MBs are beautiful! We are all going to have such outstanding quilts!! You are all awesome. Beautiful kitchen, lovely quilts, exciting trips (not counting Anne's "trip around the dining room"), getting together with friends and family, sharing good and bad news. I feel like I'm coming home when I'm here.

    I'm going to the Bat Cave and work on a Christmas table topper for my BFF. She's the one who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer almost 2 years ago--she's amazing. She's still fighting and doing pretty well. Last Thanksgiving they gave her 1-3 weeks to live. I guess she's proved them wrong!!! Keep the prayers and positive vibes coming for her, please--something's working for her!

    I agree with Jan---great MBs and also a great kitchen.

    Not much going on here...finished getting the borders on a quilt. Need to piece the backing and then sandwich...this one will be tied. Never done that before...what kind of needle do you recommend? (This is for the crazy quilt I've had for several months.)

    JanRN ... such wonderful news that you got a bonus day! We had much the same weather last night with the high winds. Quite the frightful night. Lots of rain earlier, so kind of ruined Halloween for the kiddies, I'm sure! And even better news as to how your friend has done this year ... bonus days, every one of them.

    CarrieM ... good for you and all your progress!


    Any more MBs? I think we are still missing some, aren't we?


    So Ladies ... how are we going to celebrate our 1st Anniversary on the 21st?

    I've been reading but not responding to all you've written. I'm sending good thoughts to all who need it, hoping all is ok with QNS. I forgot when she has her surgery, beginning of November that's all I remember.

    I had an appointment with the doctors today. My surgery will be within 3 weeks from now - at least that's the plan.

    I didn't think of our 1st anniversary, I might be in hospital that day so you all go ahead without me First post in this thread was November 20st......
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    So glad to "see" you Anael ... Good news that the surgery is planned, though I am sure you are anxious about it to be over and for it to go well. Hope you are feeling a little better every day, to build up and be ready for your surgery. How is Bram doing? Do take care ... {{{{HUGS}}}} to you!
