    Just e-mailed this pic to DD, told her I had been laying bricks all day

    I used a whole bobbin on the background fill for this block. DH is back to work early tomorrow morning so I plan on doing a lot of quilting while he is away

    So what's new?????
    Actually I'm not so sure you are any less productive with DH in residence!

    Amazing brickwork and door crosshatching and turrets ...... and..... and.......
    Yes, you are Miracle MiraB, as you were tagged the other day!




    Q&A Time, Ladies .........
    Please and Thanks!!!

    What width/length would you do, as a generic multi-functional use table runner?
    (when you do not know who will get it, and what size of table, etc.)

    Likewise, what do you find is the most useful runner size for a buffet or other side table?

    I'm starting to think of the exchange gift for my "adopted" family Christmas. This year I'm thinking a runner, possibly with placemats. I want to allow for the most flexibility that I can, being that I have no clue who will get it. Colour scheme is likely to be neutrals -- creams or whites with golds. Think elegance! (and the fact that it will fit with most people's decor year round)

    Today I start Fr♥sty Too!
    (and overnight some pebbly snow ... and just 1-1/2 hour drive away, they had five inches of the white stuff!)

    Good morning! For a table runner that will remain on the table during meal time I think one about 13-15" x 26-30" works great--this size wouldn't interfere with the place settings and will accommodate the more narrow tables. As for the buffet 15" wide is about right and no more than 48". JMHO.
    I like the creams and golds idea. I'm working on a simple checkerboard with 50 2 1/2" cut squares and a blue paisley gold metallic border. This is a 50th anniversary gift. One of the CB fabrics is a metallic gold paisley on cream background. This is really simple but very pretty. Need to get it finished.
    Have to be in town in 45 minutes so better go. Catch you all later. Keep your snow an 1 1/2 away QE!
    Don't worry spider.

    No snow here; just cold weather which is good since the refrigerator is not working. Second repair job in less than 10 days...and this time he has to order a part that may or may not be here by Thursday. That is when they will deliver the new one... which will come first???and you can bet the new one is not a Maytag!!!

    Anael, thinking about you, missing you on QB, and hope things will go better for you! {[(Hugs)]}

    Mirabelle, I really wish some of that rain would come down here; you have too much and we need the moisture in the soil here....its much too dry. You have outdone yourself in the that lovely castle. Beautiful brick laying job.
    Dublb and DD, so happy to hear from you...if just a short note!!

    I am sooooo wanting to sew!!!!

    I haven't been doing much sewing, but did get this sample block made for a friend today. She is going to make her mom a quilt using these fabrics...she will alternate a big block with a bunch of flowers with the D9P block. My friend is in Florida and she wanted flannel...her mom is in Iowa. Her mom's favorite flower is the rose, so when I told her about this fabric she was very excited.

    Lovely, Carrie, that is an excellent choice of color and pattern. If she does not like it...you can contact me.

    Welcome SimoneMSQC ... Am I correct in thinking your MSQC is indeed "THE" MSQC?

    CarrieM ... Looks like the start of another great quilt. The wine/burgundy will give it a really rich look. How are you making out with physio and your shoulder?

    QE--no PT lately. I am getting a 2nd opinion Thursday from another surgeon. My pain isn't *as bad* but then I haven't been doing much the last couple weeks. I can tell tonight that I was in the clubhouse a little while today. Thanks for asking....

    QuiltE I was thinking the same thing what does MSQC stand for??

    Beautiful quilt design Carrie it is going to look stunning when finished.

    I am really going to miss DH this week as he was massaging my shoulder every night, which really made a difference. I have the heat rub but it is not the same as someone else rubbing it in Back to the bat cave for me, I would really like to have this finished by next week..

    CarrieM ... sorry! I guess I missed that you weren't doing physio and were waiting for another appt. Good Luck on Thursday. Hope that today's activity wasn't too much and does not cause a setback.

    MiraB ... MSQC=Missouri Star Quilt Company aka Jenny Doan. I wouldn't think someone else would use the initials. Though of course there can be acronyms with the same initials, different meaning. I was thinking of you today ... and figured your machine was probably in overdrive. Nice that your DH was able to help your shoulder. Have you ever tried massaging it with a tennis ball? I back/lean into a wall and aim the ball wherever I need it. Works pretty good on the shoulders and butt, if you get sciatic or sometimes it helps the shoulder too. Never as nice as a real massage, but it can help.

    Mirabelle...you are such an artist. I still get stumped when it comes to what FMQing would enhance a quilt which is part of my reluctance to do it more. Are the fires still raging in the other part of your nation?
    JanRN...back to retirement. Glad things have settled down for you. That sounds like a really fun road trip you have planned.
    OK...you remind me if a juggler....so many things to keep going down on the farm and it sounds like you do it with grace.
    Dubib....anything else on the old house? More boxes to go yet at the new one?
    DD...do your kids ride the bus to school? You sound like you're way out from civilization. I grew up in WA up in the hills and the nearest town for shopping was 16 miles down a serious grade but we did have our own little school. Mine was the last graduating class...9 of us...when consolidation swept through.
    QuiltE...sound like you will have some lovely gifts for your adopted family. So nice to have others to share time and talent with! I would have enjoyed the horse pull too.
    Jeanie...so glad you had a good time at the shower. Made all of the work worth it for you.
    Carrie...hope you find a lasting solution for your shoulder. You are so young! Mine are both acting up a little but I've used them about twice as long as you have yours.
    QNS...such good news for your eyes! You will get back to sewing very soon. Cooking will be easy with your DH having no teeth.
    Honchey...did you win at bingo last night?
    Anael...we sure miss you. I hope you will soon get lasting relief and can return to your happy self.
    Janie...is your snow staying? We had a skiff yesterday and it's all gone but still very cold.
    GrannyQ...thinking of you and yours.
    I did finally get the borders in my Mirabelle and my list of wips is getting smaller. Flimsys aren't counted in that. Two empty drawers, one empty project box and one empty small tub. Scraps are piling up though and something needs to be done about them. I went to the eye dr last week and found I have joined the cataract gang. They are not to the point of surgery for correction but my new glasses really make a difference. Today I'm back at the jungle quilt I started when I was at the retreat with Carrie. I've revised the design and taken out the star block so I'm in the creative stretching stage to use what fabric I have. So far so good. Young boys wouldn't appreciate the effort to make them anyway.

    Why, Dublb....the boxes will wait. Have fun, enjoy some sewing for me too... My MB is all done for the month, but not next month. SYE are not done for November...still waiting for the all clear from the doctor.

    MSQC=Missouri Star Quilt Company aka Jenny Doan is a very quick on the draw lady; I mentioned to her at AQS show in DM how everyone on QB loved her and she was just as quick in taking our picture together. No I did not get a copy. Some day, I hope to stay there for a retreat.

    Today is the day we get a refrigerator back into action; its not been working since Saturday and boy, how I have missed it!! On QB recipes, I have been getting ideas for 'soft' food for dh's Thanksgiving Day meal. I want him to enjoy the day as much as the rest of us...smell, taste and stuff. He has four more teeth to be pulled.

    Mirabelle, I hope you are fine and dry where you live. Anael, I hope you are doing fine. OksewGlad, there are many fields of corn and beans still in the fields here, beans maybe about six to eight inches high. Wildlife is having a feast. JanRN, I hope you enjoyed your FART trip with friends. JeanieG, I hope your camping trip was enjoyable, too.

    Have a good day; celebrate the day.

    Hi my friends,
    today I went to hospital again.......third time this week Homecare wasn't pleased with what was going on so the nurse phoned the hospital. I hope this was the last time before surgery which will be December 3rd.

    I hope you all had great times, I did read most of the posts but don't remember everything I haven't been sewing in weeks
    I love all the blocks and quilts you all have been making!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Mirabelle's having lots of fun with "her little girl"....the quilt is just so so so great!!!

    Jan, glad to hear your down to one day a week!!!

    QuiltE, I won twice on different nights playing bingo $40 & $80...I'll be palying tomorrow night at the clubhouse...small prizes but you can win multiple times.....I have been doing a little bit of sewing..right knee tells me when to stop....I haven't been getting much sleep..it seems to hurt no matter where or how I lay my leg...I've also limited my walking...The Tens Unit helps alot with keeping some of the swellign down...I now know the surgery will be sooner than later..maybe even before the year ends if I can get it scheduled...I think my DR is in the Philippines right now...
    My neighbor moved last Friday and I'm so angry...I really liked this womanand her kids deceived her...she thought she was going to an apartment only to find out that it was a nursing home instead...she did have all her faculties and would have never agreed to sell the house if she knew.... They just want her money....it's just so horrible....
    I have over a thousand emails I have to delete so I better get to it... DH is playing golf and will have to pick him up in an hour..by the way the temp here last nite was 27*.. I had to bring in a bunch of plants that she gave me before moving...I'm going to have to bring them home with me....

    Have a good day all of you and take care. H.

    Sorry Anael that you are still feeling poorly.

    I wanted to update everyone on my shoulder appt (2nd opinion)...I will now be doing "pool therapy" for the next 4 weeks. If there's no improvement, then surgery is an option. This doctor thinks there might be a small tear in my rotator cuff...based on what he saw on the MRI. He didn't say anything about the bicep tendon...the first doctor did and then changed his mind.

    I get to be home all day tomorrow so maybe I will do some sewing then....

    I know it will be a while before I get to use a jelly roll I recently bought, but am wondering if any of you have a favorite jelly roll pattern? Some yardage from the line is on sale so I would like to get it now, but can't decide what pattern I want.

    Carriem, If it is the rotator cuff, get it fixed as soon as you can..you cannot imagine not having the pain anymore...it will be such a relief!!!! I think it's terrible that some Dr's can't get it right the first time or are afraid of the new regulations with the dreaded Healthcare....I hope you feel better soon Carrie....I'll try to get back in another day or two.....

    I had about four or five books to suggest, Carrie, but they are all 'hiding' from me right now!

    Went to LQS-K yesterday, she was having a sale of fabric, $3.00 per yard, and I felt like a bandit walking out with the just under a $100. worth about $300 plus. May have to return to the crime scene next Wednesday! Its every Wednesday this month.

    New refrigerator is in and running...wow. Its bigger and better and will hold my Thanksgiving things.

    Hi everyone! We had a marvelous camping trip. There were 14 rigs, lots of great food and cards. We spent last evening with a catered dinner at one of the guys beach house that is two miles from our camp ground. Here are some photos I took. The first is the coast line, the second a view of the islands that sit right offshore (this was Wednesday and it was cloudy most of the day), the final one was Wednesday nights sunset. It was so unusual and stunning!
