    Looks neat to me; that would be pretty as a table runner for Easter, Dublb. Love the colors you used.

    QNS, the folded sheet with templates is in the back of the book, not the actual pages...I was able to use my seam ripper and slice up the fold of the sheet close to where it was attached and opened it without disengaging it from the book. I was then able to open it and refold to place it in the scanner and copied what I needed..I then refolded it to the original way it was....I didn't have to remove it at all

    I made rice pudding for my part for the clubhouse BINGO refreshment table and I won the last game of the evening... $ 80...that was so great!!!! quite a few wanted the recipe so I'll have it published in the monthly newsletter....I was told to also mention that it should say "as served in Bingo"...so they'll know it is the "good one"..ha ha ha...I love it!!!

    I did a little bit of drivin today, about 60 miles total and my right leg, knee & ankle has swelled up on me...so now I have it elavated with the Tens unit patches on...I'm wondering if the sewing has something to do with it...I was at it for 2 days...
    Anael, The Sewgrands are getting sew big!!! they look great together..

    I have to now start getting my stuff together for the return home..we are leaving Friday afternoon and staying over in Virginia. to continue on Saturday....then to get ready for Turkey Day!!!
    Take Care, all of you...have a good evening. I'm off to beddy bye...

    Dublb--I really like that block. It will make a nice wallhanging.

    Anael--very cute picture of your grandchildren.

    Ggal--you have been very productive this year. Sounds like you have some fun things planned for 2014!

    QNS--were you able to talk to anyone at the foundation factory? Hope you can get it to work for you.

    Honchey--pretty blocks. Congrats on another bingo win!

    Got word this morning that my GGD was born. Elizabeth Malai at 7#4 oz and 19 3/4 inches. Nice size for the first. I have no idea when I will see her since they live in S Carolina and I don't do winter travel anymore.
    until I can get to the LQS for more border fabric for the jungle quilt, I will be working on my Ocean Waves. I have about half of the blocks done and lots of triangles ready to make into units. I have a pot of stew made, it's cold and sunny out so I should have a productive morning in the sewing room. This afternoon the fallen tree limbs have to be picked up whether I feel like it or not. Have a good one!

    Ggal, glad you only had minor problems with the storm. It missed us except for the heavy rain. Congrats on the new GGD!! Hope they send you lots of pics. My, you have been a busy sewing bee--so many projects getting complete--good job!

    Jeanie, any hints you pick up on DJ Yahoo site please pass along. The more I look at it the more intimidated I get but I figure yinz talked me thru FWS & PC so I'm counting on all your help with this project. Enjoying the new kitchen?

    Dblb, I love the new design you "created". See, there are no mistakes--just new opportunities.

    Anne, glad you won at bingo. My dad used to play the daily lottery everyday. He's win just enough to buy the next batch of tickets. Have a safe drive home and keep that knee wrapped and elevated. We need our leader strong and upright LOL.

    QE must be sewing up a storm, she's been mighty quiet here. She claims she's just practicing FMQ--well if that's practice I'm impressed.

    Interesting day at work yesterday--we were in "lock down". A guy had shot & killed his girlfriend and they couldn't find him. His parents live in the house behind our office so police & SWAT teams surrounded the area with helicopters overhead. We had to keep the doors locked and only open them if we recognized the patient. They found him about a mile away in an apartment with a hostage so the police moved down there. We didn't see too many patients because of all the road blocks and police vehicles. He released the hostage & then shot himself. The hostage was his murdered girlfriend's new boyfriend. Maybe I don't even want to work one day a week. I've had more contact with law enforcement in the past month than I've had in my life!! Glad I'm off until next Monday.

    I have to finish a Christmas table topper for my office manager (dr's wife) so I'll post it later for your opinion. Have a good one, ladies!

    Great deal, Honchey. Hope you love the pattern and that we get to see a picture of it...finished. Rice pudding recipe?

    Carrie, I tried the 50 stars again and they printed as a pp and in the different sizes. Much better results this morning; guess I got up on the right side of the bed.

    I ordered from Inkling the Storm at Sea; for the money, I really got bonus upon bonus. One book is 80 pages, the second at 358 pages...but you print them off yourself. Have not figured out how to print their patterns off in actual size, so Linda's 'monkey' is smarter than me...she has been good to really go beyond the norm to help so far...much I did not know ordering from Canada and downloading here.

    Wow the mess around my computer from not being in the sewing room...running out of printing paper rapidly, need to get ## of paper packages soon...asap. Just no one move my 'piles' 'cause I am organized!???????

    GG, congrats on the new grandbaby.

    JanRN, you posted while I was typing, your 'work' day was very exciting. My hometown Wal Mart had a weapon fired in it but no one seen anything, they found the bullet no one hurt. At Wal Mart in K. I witness an arrest of a felony guy, watched the police come in, surround the parking lot, and a sniper armed policeman walking to the front of the store. I stayed in my car with doors locked until they left with him...no shots were fired. Guess everyone shops at Wal Mart. A friend sent me a photo of a lady in Alaska, with a gun on her hip in a holster...its legal there to carry an 'open' weapon...in a Wal Mart.

    So you all take care of yourselves. No wind or rain or any other actions harmed any thing here.

    It's party time! Trial is over and done. We deliberated until after 5:00 last night so it was after 6:00 when we were out of the Courthouse. Glad I made my PO run in the morning as I had bills paid ready to send off. Ran to Wally after for a couple of things and then home close to 8:00. Was I bushed. Slept until almost 10:00 am. Now I have to catch up on life here. A sunny day so hope to get outside and get some final fall work done. Didn't check emails at all yesterday so have been busy following up on those items. Nope--Ilean has gone on an extended vacation--just a lot of brown spilt milk to clean up!
    Such pretty greens, Anne. Anxious to see how those pyramids turn out!
    And those babies--Sew Grand! Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better, Anael. Just take care until surgery is over and done and you will feel much better.
    Congrats to the new GGma GGal!
    Jan--life has not been dull for you has it?
    Next to QNS's organized pile of papers there's a large calendar with a countdown. How many days left til "sew time"? Not too many more boxes to X are there?
    Love the block dublb. Great idea to set it on point and keep it!
    DD good to have you stop by! Take care of that ankle, okay? And take a moment or two for yourself as well.
    Closing thought is for the devastation in our neighbor states. All the homes that were destroyed and winter's coming on. Lots of prayers being said.

    Anne Mackin's Rice Pudding as served in Bingo!

    1. 64 oz of whole milk
    2. 1 cup of rice..not converted, minute rice, etc..Just plain old rice..although I use Jasmine rice..
    3. 3/4 cup sugar.
    3. the peel of a thick skin orange..no white pith attached..
    4. 1 extra large egg. room temperature
    5. 1 cup heavy cream
    6. 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
    7. 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
    8. 1/2 cup golden raisins

    In a 5 qt pot add the milk, rice and sugar, add the orange peel that you have squeezed to get some of the oil released from it...stir ithe mix well...bring to a boil then lower the heat to a slow simmer, cover with the lid just off a bit to keep the pot from boiling over...cook until the rice is very tender, approximately 45 minutes..then blend the egg with the just a little bit of the hot mixture to temper the egg to keep it from becoming hard cooked in the mix...add the heavy cream and vanilla plus the raisins..the mixture will thicken as it cools and the raisin will become nice & plump..optional: sprinkle with cinnamon before serving..

    note: I have learned from experience not to use a non-stick pot when using an electric cook top.. stainless steel heavy bottom pot works the best..

    Love it, Anne. Will serve that during the holiday next week. Bfs (Susan & Gary)are coming on Wednesday eve and will leave on Sunday. Bf's dh sister and her husband is coming, too, so no time for sewing...Lin & Ken will be in the sewing room. So I have this next week for cleaning house and cooking. Clear the dinning room and table about 3 days...clear papers in sewing room, five days...on the road doing errands at least two days...and it will all come together in the end and we will have a ball with each other...and each comfortable enough to deal with the rest. Breakfast and lunch each day, and eat up with overs at supper time, each doing their own plate.

    So happy to hear that no one in this group suffered from those tornadoes. Tree branches to pick up are minior compared to some ... and yes, I have my share of those too! I did hear from another QB member who was OK, though the storm passed within a mile of their home. Too close!

    Starting off snickering here with GGal's spilled milk quip to OKSGlad!
    But ooooooh what a mess cleaning up hot chocolate!

    GGal ... good for you for planning to do a Baltimore. I haven't fallen for them yet, though if I get doing some applique, maybe one day! Looks like you have lots of projects planned! Congratulations on your new DGGD!

    Honchey ... another BINGO win! yea! Rice Pudding is a favourite of mine ... even made some the other day, just for me!! After your flare up, guess you'll be pampering your leg to be ready for the homeward journey on the weekend.

    DublB ... new design works ... you could continue it on and have more of the Hunter's Stars show. Maybe now call it Hunter's Cross?

    JanRN ... now that's just a little too much excitement at work! What next?

    DDamsel ... My goodness ... you never stop! And how is that twisted driving foot, after all that driving? Maybe you need a hand controlled vehicle?

    OKSGlad ... glad that your stint is OVER!! Now back to the regular hustle for you!

    Guess you will all be busy making your Thanksgiving plans for next weekend. I think you make a bigger event of it, than we do here in Canada.

    Were there any more MBs in the mail today? I want eye candy!

    With the cccccccccold snap (only -6C today) ... I was really feeling it, even here in my home! So I made a big pot of hamburg stew. Good meals for today/tmro ... then will either freeze it or recycle it into soup! Fresh muffins too!

    Take care everyone!

    It's spectacular GGal!!!!!!! .... And I can see why you are drawn to it.
    So were you suggesting the red DJ was calling to you?

    If you're ready to tackle this 1790 Wedding Coverlet, then I know who to turn to for help when I get doing the DJ applique!! .... you will be a big help!

    UGH, Jan and I are not applique fans either!!! I think I'll do mine with machine applique on the DJ, if I do DJ!

    Got my list out for Thanksgiving Dinner. I make it easier on myself by baking the turkey the day before! I slice it up and put it in a large pyrex baking dish with juices from the turkey to keep it moist. I only have to reheat it on Thanksgiving day. I have done this for the past few years, and it really helps with all the other dishes that need to be cooked. I also do my potatoes in the crock pot!

    Likewise QuiltE, so glad our friends here were safe from the Tornadoes!

    I've been closing my eyes to the applique blocks--pretending they don't exist or hoping I'll wake up some day and like applique.

    I finished my grab bag gift for my office manager. She lives in an old converted farm house with tons of antiques. I used burgandy & green instead of red & green. Do you think this looks antiquey enough?Name:  Topper.jpg

    Jan--I think that is great. Is it pp'd?

    Ggal--you are very ambitious to do that applique BOM, but it is very pretty.

    Re: DJ--since I won't be making all the blocks/don't need a big quilt, I am choosing just pp'd blocks to make. Maybe one day I will do applique, but no interest right now.

    Sounds like Thanksgiving plans are in the works. We will get together at my mom's that weekend...2 of my 3 sister's and their families will be there. My other sister is pregnant and in NC, so it's too long of drive in the 3rd trimester. We haven't talked about the menu yet, but I will probably take a carrot casserole and maybe potatoes (either party or mashed). We provide the turkey too (DH gets one from work every year)....but I don't cook that, it gets put in the roaster before we get there. Mom usually buys what we tell her to and we do the cooking...she doesn't like to. We always come up with stuff Mom needs in her kitchen. I bought her some good knives a few years back. Can't remember what it was last year we needed...I'll have to check with my sisters.

    JanRN ... it's definitely antiquey, and so rich looking. Perfect for a farm house! Lucky Office Manager to be a recipient of your generosity. And to boot ... does not scream Christmas, so she can use it all year long!

    JeanieG and JanRN ... me too! The only applique I have done are the two blocks in FWS! I'm going to at least give applique a try and see how it goes.

    CarrieM ... nice that you all share the cooking at your Mom's! Definitely your carrot casserole .... I really liked it!

    Jan...I'm sure your block will be a hit. It's beautiful.
    Here is a link to a method of appliqué I've never heard of but takes all of the mystery out of it and really simplifies it. Those of you that like the Hexies just might find this method something you would enjoy. It's an easy pick up and go project. I did some traditional needle turn many years ago and had a class last year with the wax paper method and hands down, this is easier than both from the looks of it. There are many other tutorials to search out if you are interested. http://appliqueaddict.blogspot.com/2...g-started.html

    Thanks for the link GGal ... I see a lot of frustrating hours spent on DJ, the D not necessarily meaning Dear!



    Question Ladies .... Please and Thanks!
    Faux Suede ....
    has anyone worked with it? can you iron/press it? how hot? any other tips and tricks?

    I have seen two types ... one that is suede like on both sides (my preference); one that has a satin-like finish on the back side.

    I'm thinking of using it in a quilt, in order to give some texture variations. Nuts?

    Hi guys,

    I apologize for not addressing you each individually, but life is throwing me several curve balls and I am going on a wing and a prayer. No time to read all your news and I am sad about that. I hope all is well with you all.

    I got my November MB off in the mail on Tuesday . whew!

    We leave for our son's and daughter in law's place on next Tuesday and I have much to do so no time for computers. All the other stuff that's happening is becoming overwhelming so it was so nice to get the mail yesterday and find this from carriem. Thank you Carrie. I love it. It is called Crossroads form Quilters Cache. Doesn't it look striking?

    Carrie, you are a genius!!! I'm so anal I was looking at the blocks for DJ to do Row 1, Block 1, block 2, etc., in the exact order. I know I'll never make all 1.5 million blocks in the quilt so why not just do the pp ones???? Brilliant!! I may do one or 2 applique just to keep in practice but like those (bleeping) y-seams in FWS & PC, I don't have to applique. Yay!! Thank you, Carrie, for pointing out the obvious LOL. I'd have never thought of that.

    I love the block you made for Janie. Janie, hang in there and take care of yourself. We'll still be here sending virtual hugs; come back and visit when you need to.
