    Great to hear from you QNS and that the surgery went well, now you have to follow Doc's orders and rest that eye, don't try and do too much too soon...

    Anael I am thinking of you and hope that the next few weeks go quickly for you and you can have the surgery and get back to your old self again. Hugs coming your way.

    Do you remember this quilt, I made it some time ago, well I donated it to my embroidery club to raise funds for Camp Quality (Children's Cancer Organisation) There is an annual Craft Fair at the Retirement Resort where we hold our club meetings and we always have a display of quilts and sell tickets in our raffle quilt. Today 4 of us spent 3 hours selling tickets and we raised $830. Woohoo we had a lot of fun but I am so tired now, left home this morning at 6.30am and arrived home at 2.30pm

    Mirabelle, that is so great that you sold so many Raffle Tickets! Wow!!! I know that your quilt is worth every penny of that! It is so darling!

    Read all your messages here without glasses, unbelievable!!!

    JeanieG, what a lovely kitchen. Mirabelle, what a great MB block. JanRN, hope all is well for you...no power...hope it came back on. Honchey, like that "Bunny" advertisement you are still going......wow.

    The eye guard came off last night, I went into the restroom, and suddenly had this bad feeling I knew where it was.... and fished it out before flushing! Sterilize it later. Guess that is a sign from Above saying, Go, thee is ok now. Cannot believe how 'white' this screen is....that I can see without glasses! Everyone take care.

    QNS, so glad everything went well!

    Anael, take care of yourself, stay healthy so your body is ready for surgery. I'm sure you're anxious to get it done.

    Mirab, beautiful quilt and awesome the amount of money raised. You are so generous with your time & talent.

    Anne, hope the weather in NC is warmer than NJ; that should help your knee feel a little better. Not much to do for it other than pain killers & swearing (which helps! LOL) until you have your surgery. You'll still be able to keep us PC riders in line even with a cane or walker. This has been a great year thanks to your leadership. If we add in FWS, doesn't that make it almost 3 years we've been riding together? Wow.

    Thanks JanRN, for the trip down memory lane of all the good things we've done together!

    Honchey ... yea for the warm climes of NC, BINGO and yes, more golf for your DH! Time will go fast enough to surgery and then the same again for the recovery. Sounds like a good plan that you have put in place.

    QNSue ... glad all went well. While you may not need the shield on during the day, please be sure to put it on at night time. Also, careful if you put on a pullover ... a good time to also wear it or to cup your hand over instead. While you may think your eye is OK, it will be tender for sometime and believe me, you do not want to find that out by accidentally scrape it while sleeping or dressing. (I made the mistake of sliding a pullover on ... OUCH!! had no problems remembering after that!!!!) As the others have said ... please follow the Dr's instructions to a T so your vision can continue to improve.

    MiraB ... Such a BEEautiful quilt and for such a good cause. Congratulations on your sales ... was the draw today? or how many more $$$ can you make for Camp Quality? Now go and rest thyself up!

    It's so nice to pop on here and see that QNS anf Anael are coming along. Hope your situation gets resolved soon, Anael.

    I was hoping I would get my MB this week, but it's still not here so now I will get 2 in November! Big Grin.

    I am off to watch the twins skate and then I plan to spend the afternoon in my sewing room. We are expecting a horrible storm today and tomorrow so I went to Fabricland yesterday and bought a ton of warm and natural at half price so I can sandwich several flimsies. I will have lots to do in January when I get home from the south.

    Have a good one everybody.

    For the past few weeks I have been up to my eyeballs trying to get these quilts finished for Ronald McDonald House, and today I finished hand sewing the final binding on. Hope you enjoy the eye candy.

    All fabrics came from my stash and I can't see any reduction

    Those quilts will be such a comfort to those families in the Ronald McDonald House! What a wonderful and generous person you are to make all of these for that charity!

    JanieW ... that your MB has not arrived . Good for you for stockpiling for January. Did the twins put on a good skating show for you today? Hockey players in the making? I am sure that your DS+DDIL are so thankful that you can be there to help them so much. When do you head south? and when do you hope to be back? My thoughts and prayers for your DDIL. Take care!

    Anyone else missing their MB still?

    Honchey ... I was thinking tonight that perhaps we should mail the December MBs early, knowing that Christmas always slows the mail down. Thoughts?

    MiraB ... A superstar you are! So generous with your donations. So 5 sets, meaning one thru your group? and the others direct to the coordinating group? Because each set is so unique, I don;t think I could pick a favourite as I like each for different reasons.


    Time to turn the clocks back ... I did them at supper time, so I really feel like I have gained a real bonus in time! Win-Win!!! Hope everyone takes benefit of that extra hour!

    I just e-mail Anael my November MB for approval I hope it gets the nod as I want to post it next week.. I agree with posting the December blocks a little early if possible as the mail does get slower for Christmas. But I will go with what everyone else wants as I know not everyone has their blocks made.

    Mirabelle, I, too, have my November MB approved by Anael. Unlike others, that is as far as I have made....and I think you are right QuiltE and Mirabelle with the Christmas mail rush. I usually get a couple of Christmas cards day or two after Thanksgiving. Christmas decor is out at most stores now. We have continued our agreement with family and each other since 1972; no commercial gifts: all homemade, from the heart with love. It might be as simple as a love letter from DH.

    I enjoyed that extra hour today with rest and healing time. You all have a good day today.

    NinaSue it is so nice to hear you are up and around and seeing a lot better.. but that doesn't mean you can overdo it. So continue to rest and let others look after you.

    And I just heard from Anael and I have the thumbsup to post my November block, so I will be setting it free on Tuesday. I wonder where it is going ??????????????

    QuiltE I should have answered you, I have decided that all 5 sets are going to be delivered on Wednesday. There is too much nonsense going on at the moment with my patchwork group that I have decided to distance myself until things settle down. It only takes one person (who is new to the group) to make things uncomfortable. She is the mother of our new longarm friend/member and they have been coming to our group for 4 weeks now and the mother seems to think she can run things and is bossing everyone around. She was trying to tell me how to make an Ohio Star last week and when I asked her how long she had been patchworking she told me 3 years, when I told her I had been doing this for 26 years she literally called me a liar in a roundabout way, she is definitely not on my Christmas list The older I get the less I like confrontation.

    Awesome work (and generous heart) as usual, Mirab. I envy your productivity and talent. How could anyone question your ability? There's always one in every group who knows more than everyone else. Striking her off your Christmas list is much more lady-like and civilized than what I would want to strike!!

    Thought this was the week that I could go back to working one day per week. Have to go in tomorrow to clean up the mess from being closed on Friday due to the power outage. All the patients that were scheduled on Friday will have to be squeezed in somewhere plus the usual Monday add-ons; would be too much for the new girl to handle. (I haven't heard that she's been arrested or anything so I hope she shows up LOL.) Also have to work Thursday for high school physicals and Friday my usual day. Don't they realize I only have 2 uniforms and I'm NOT buying anymore???

    Hope everyone enjoyed the extra hour of sleep. Now it's going to be dark before 5pm. Will keep lots of lights on and hope seasonal depression does not come back as bad as last year.

    I also think it's a good idea to mail December MBs early to avoid the Christmas rush. I'll follow yinz's lead.

    Have a great Sunday everyone--sun is shining but it's only 35*. Good day for a pot roast in the oven.

    Oh how sad for you, MiraB ... there's been so many rumblings in your patchwork group for sometime now. Now for another know-it-all, stirring the pot ... and with a LAQ/DD I fear what she is next going to say regarding your DSM FMQing! ggrrrrrrrrrr (Like JanRN, I probably would not be able to be so diplomatic as you! more gggrrrrrr!!!!). You enjoyed your group so much, and to have that joy taken is terrible. The important part is that the McD Qs will get to the right place and will be so appreciated by all who stay in those rooms. So nice to have something personally made, instead of just the commercial bedding. So welcoming!

    QNSue ... I'm echoing what MiraB has already said.

    JanRN ... Oh no! Are you starting to wonder if that FART-irement is ever going to become a reality? The good thing is that you can do it. Oh to be SO wanted! Had to laugh though at the only 2 uniforms .... maybe better get it down to one and then tell them that you can only do one load of wash a week! Then again, BossDoc just might go out and buy you a full set of uniforms!

    mmmmmmmmmmmmm for JanRNs pot roast ... with roast veggies and potatoes?

    Same concept here today. Mine will be Scalloped Pork Chops, Potatoes, Onions and Carrots! Yup ... you figured it out, a one dish wonder that I can make and stuff in the oven and forget ... then go and sew!!!

    Frosty here this morning too, though sunny and bright and all things beautiful!

    Yes ladies, you may send the blocks early..at this point receiving a surprise in the mail early is fine with me...it keeps the spirits up when we see the pretty blocks posted... I have my fabric & block pattern picked out for Nov & Dec & will get them done in NC...The only thing I hate about going back & forth is the packing & unpacking...ugh!

    Mirabelle, some people are just meddlers no matter what you say or do...if she continues to meddle just tell her to mind her own business and to keep her nose out of yours...
    Good News Jan..there are reports online that you will live longer if you continue to work..

    QuiltE, I think it was you that listed the letters for the smilies...I only know of , , ...what are the rest???

    QNS, Again.. take it easy!!!!

    Honchey ... you're just going to have to get the packing cut down to less!! Having never been migratory myself, I'm sure it's easier said than done, I suspect. I know that my sister has really cut down on what she takes to Florida each year. I think it's pretty much one change of clothes for en route, her undergarments and toiletries .... and the most precious of all, her quilting suitcase! Used to take a machine, but now has one there permanently. Virtually no food, because of the border crossing hassles. So you like surprises?

    JanRN ... Guess we now know that you will live FOREVER!!!!!!!!! ......... with no time to quilt!

    No, I've never posted a smiley library, but here's a few of the simple ones!

    (to get the smiley to show, do not put a space between the characters)
    : ) =
    : ( =
    : D =
    ; ) =
    : o =
    : p =
    < 3 =
    < : ) =


    There's a whole bunch more that you can type words or you can click on the symbol.

    For all the QB smileys, just click on the smiley symbol at the top of the box when you are typing a message. You can either click on the symbol or you can roll your mouse over the symbol and note the text to type. Be sure to take a look at the fun ones when you click on "more" including ......... !!!!

    Sounds to me, Mirabelle, you need to 'become' a blonde and attend whatever patchwork meetings you want to go to. Jeanie and i have laughed at blonde jokes, I was born a blonde.. A blonde can 'pretend' to be very dumb and look at people who have all the answers, and say, "Oh, really?" And go on with life. If they really think the person is over stepping, they may say, "Oh, dear, reeeeallllly?" and sigh long and loud., "Really glad you told me!" That person that 'knows' everything is showing off her ignorance and is too dumb to know it....so consider it's advice from the peanut gallery or pea brained individual.

    Yes, I am taking life one minute at a time...trying to be very careful. Dh can fix himself meals and snacks for himself. I did get the linen closet cleaned out, but all that jammed in paperwork-I-will-file-later is on my sewing tables now. That will keep me busy for the rest of the month...or two. Guess I can think up more excuses if I need to do so, until I cannot stand it anymore. Bf has returned home to support her dh, but we 'appreciated' her help, but not necessary the 'advice'....which I told her went into one ear and out the other. Being in a junior high scheme for 37 years just may have something to do with my attitude today...there was a peanut-minded person in every crowd. Just as long as it was not me, I felt 'safe'.

    QNSue ... The "paperwork-I-will-file-later" has been so and never affected life, has it. So find a box, and put the pile into it, and label it to give a clue with today's date. If you ever need something from it, you know where to go. The date will remind you how long it has sat from today ... and sometime you will decide it's time to just toss it!

    As you would say ... Life's too short ...

    HI all,

    QNS, I'm glad you're ok and your surgery went well

    My DS, DDIL, Mick and the twins were here this morning. Bram and Isa are doing well though Isa has been throwing up a lot in the past week. She's back to 8 bottles a day now and she's not throwing up that much anymore.
    I made lemon bars before they arrived. Mick liked them, he wanted to taste a bite and came back all the time telling me his mouth was empty again
    I was very tired after they left so I fell asleep on the couch while watching a movie
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat
