    Good job, Carrie to JanieW. We miss you, JanieW, but send you our love and prayers. WE are in virtual RV with hugs for you and GrannyQ and for Anael.

    Whew! Made the first run to the grocery stores for Thanksgiving Day supplies. Dh brought them inside to the kitchen floor and I will process on putting away here shortly after I catch my breath...if he puts them away they become 'lost' in places unknown. Think I have everything to make Carrie's carrots and Honchey's rice pudding, Turkey, dressing, yellow potatoes, green beans and mushroom soup, Brussels sprouts (fried in olive oil, salt and pepper is delicious!), marshmallows, karo syrup, etc., three stores worth of shopping. I am tired. Must be time for a nap. Must do some work first, you all take care.

    Janie, you're in my thoughts! You've got a wonderful block (((HUGS)))

    Jan, lots of Dear Jane blocks can be pp'ed. Did you know there's a Dear Hannah too? Lots of applique blocks though and I don't like most of them.

    No news here, no fever, almost no pain so I'm ok for now I'm still not quilting, just knitting.
    The twins are teething ! !
    It's getting really cold here, at night temperatures dropped below zero. Last night it was -6 C
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Anael, good to hear from you and so glad you're feeling better. The pics of "our" grands is adorable--they always bring a smile to my face. I show them to MrJanRn and he gets a kick out of them, too. He's followed the twins progress along with us. Mick has grown so much!

    Ggal, thanks for the link to the applique site. I (sort of) like needle-turn. I got some mylar sheets to make the templates and I did okay with that method in the past. May try the new method, too. Or just skip all the applique blocks!

    Janie--Great to see that your MB arrived before you left again.

    Jan--Happy to help you realize you don't *have to* do applique, but can still do DJ without too much stress!

    I get to spend some time in the clubhouse tomorrow after school...hope to make some progress tying the "crazy quilt" I've been working on. Also need to work on my Dec and Jan MBs (Feb is done).

    DDamsel ... oh sure, make me do my own experiments ... I was hoping for some expert advice!!!

    JanieW ... looks like you need a whole bunch of {{{{HUGS}}}}. Cripes, it's darned cccccccccold out your way. Bundle up!!!

    CarrieM and JanieW ... great block and me-thinks it's the kind of cheer-me-up that JanieW needed!

    CarrieM ... glad to see you are getting some things done in the Clubhouse, despite your shoulder and therapy. Hope you are enjoying your pool therapy and that it does help. Is it this of those "hot" therapy pools?

    JanRN ... geesh ... I'm surprised you had not thought of that! I hopscotched a lot in FWS and PC, so was a basic assumption on my part for DJ!

    Anael ... that's Very Good Healthy news from you! How exciting that the SewGrands are teething ... and to think you are missing out on that! Cccccccccccold here too, about the same as you and thankfully no where near like in JanieW's parts. So keep yourself bundled up and knit away!

    QNSue ... groceries already? Am I confused ... I thought your Thanksgiving was not til next weekend?

    QuiltE, it is called 'planning ahead'. I had intended to 'check' prices, but the bargains was there, so I got supplies a week early and they will 'chill' out in the new refrigerator until next week. The cranberry-orange relish needs to be made early on, and to thaw out the meat as needed...for each meal the four or five days that they will be here. Off with dh to hold his hand this morning as the dentist will 'chip' off some bone spurs on his gums. Then, if he feels like it, he will drive me to my eye doctor's appointment..this afternoon. Maybe he will say I can quilt!! Everyone take care.

    Janie...hang on and you will make it. So glad you had the beautiful block from Carrie to cheer you.
    Anael...such good news about you and the Sew Grands. I've really missed you.
    DD..yes you have to join the Yahoo group to get the pattern. The pictures of what some of them have already done is inspiring. Maybe we will have to do our own little sew along. I'm not planning to start right away but will be on the lookout for background material.
    i decided yesterday that the center in my Ocean Waves wasn't working so last evening mr Froggy and I got ready for the change. It's raining today and I'm not planning to go anywhere so I should get a lot done.

    QE--I wouldn't say I am getting much done...I just sit there and look through fabric and patterns some days. The pool is just a regular "lap" pool. I do a variety of arm exercises with my arms/shoulders underwater. I go for my 2nd pool therapy tomorrow...they wanted to give me time to rest between.

    QNS--planning ahead is GREAT! I wouldn't want to be shopping next week. I worked at a grocery store in high school and they are *crazy* the couple days before Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hope you and DH's appts went well today.

    Ggal--bummer on having to meet with Mr Froggy, but if you weren't liking what you had you will be glad you changed it in the long run.

    School time....

    I thought I would be smart and download a program from inklingo talked about in another thread on QB; even with repeated emails with Linda, its not working out to my satisfaction. Downloaded two programs $$, Storm at Sea, and design studio where the 'real' pattern is located to download. Pattern for the first is in the second program. Did not realize what problems would enter into the scene in downloading from Canadian site. Solved that. Too many words to try and understand all the problems of reaching the actual pattern in the second one...I like things simple and direct. Even though the original source on QB said she cut out the queen size in one day..I think I will forget this one. All I wanted was the queen sized pattern and directions for cutting out the 12 and /or 16 inch blocks of the Storm at Sea.

    I even offered to pay more to her to skip the 80pp book and the 368 pp design book and just go for the five or six pages of pattern....oh, no, I had to go to page such and such to print them off... on a 13 x whatever size that was not the 81/2 x 11 inch size of letter or legal paper (yet she admitted it was regular sized paper she had used)...people all around the globe was successful at following the directions and why wasn't I understanding it....sorry. I did not. Not going to go there any time soon...not even to visit with her and her monkey for $$ I spent. I wish her well, and so glad for her that others understood it, and has used it successfully. I am ready to move on and forget about the whole thing. Too many other projects that need to be finished, don't need another one. I do admire those who do make the Storm at Sea, for it is a lovely quilt. Different folks, different strokes makes the world a delight along life's path of experiences. We are not all the same peas in the pod, and we can be very Thankful, thank you.

    I'm sorry it didn't work out for you QNS. Before I got sick I started a Storm at Sea quilt but only made 3 blocks so a long way to go

    Thanks for the recipe of the Impossible Pie. I made a few but didn't use nutmeg. Maybe next time!

    DD, you're not the only one sending off MB's without the approval stamp

    Carrie, I hope the pool therapy is working!

    Anael--I thought I sent you a pic of Janie's block too before mailing...maybe I forgot. I know I took a picture of it...sorry!! I'll try to remember before mailing my Dec MB. Your sweaters look very warm. I especially like the vest type one.

    School's done, lunch and heading to the clubhouse...yay!!!

    Yep, I sent my MB a month early 'cause I was confused; that's becoming my natural mode too often. Hope to send off this month's MB today as we go through my home town, if not, it might be late. The package is ready to go...sorry if its a bit late, ____________ for the MB. It' s in the mail.

    Love the look of both, Anael. Either one you would model nicely!

    I really love your participation Anael! it makes it feel like our GROUP is doing this will ALL included! I feel that my part in this MB exchange is to forget to take picks and send off package late I guess we each have our role to play
    also...LOVE the knits! Drops has the most amazing patterns, I dont think Im skilled enough to do one yet

    THANKS for the info Ggal, I really need to pick up my AOTH and finish it off... I just got discouraged for so many reasons... need to FINISH!

    It is nasty cold blowing wet windy day outside Im trying to stay warm and drawing up patterns on paper to finish off my MBs and also fill ins for my "It takes two" I hate doing the planning, drawing, THINKING part of sewing! why cant it ALL be fun???

    Have a GOOD one ladies!!!

    We went on a 50 day RV caravan in the Yukon/Alaska area five years ago. The vegetables really do get this big. They even have them growing in the downtown areas for the tourists to ohhh and awww over! LOL They have a wonderful Botanical Garden in Anchorage that has tons of amazing vegetables and flowers growing. I would love to go back again!

    Oh Anael, I love that cream color sweater! Wow! I can knit, but that pattern is really out of my comfort zone. I am one that often forgets to send my MB to you. I just get in such a hurry to send them off on time, I don't even take a photo of them!

    Jeanie, you can do this sweater too. It's easy, I altered the pattern and it's really easy!
    It's so nice and warm, I ordered more yarn to make another one, this time variegated red.

    QNS, those veggies are huge ! ! ! ! I've never seen them that big ever before.

    It is strange that we do not think of farming/gardening in Alaska, but in the one belt they do a great job in a short season. Also greenhouse may cover up to some 9 acres to grow in a longer season inside. They do produce giant pumpkins if they can keep the moose out of the patch and the cabbages. Moose will stalk down the rows stomping every pumpkin or cabbage in the row. I love the trade off of Hawaii and Alaska products year around in Alaska.

    Yes, Anael, I sent my blocks ahead of time in my confusion (more than a month ago) and not sure if I sent out the right one or not this month, so will watch as I clean up the quilt room (to see if I need to forward another block to same person) and convert it to a bedroom over the holiday.

    I am officially cleared to quilt. Vision in right eye is 20/20. Yes, I will have to wear reading glasses to read or sew probably, the dime store variety that is 2.0 to 2.25 lenses. No scars no blemishes, and its healed very well. to the nurses and doctors who do wonders in eye surgery.

    Warning to those North and East of me: take care, its icing and raining here moving in from Iowa in a wide band...its terrrible in Des Moines, Iowa....so please take heed, folks! Stay home and keep warm.

    Next week will be crazy for me. First we will meet our DD & her family in Brady on Sat & on Sun They will follow us home. This way the first part o' their trip isn't as long & we will winterize the house down there. Then on Mon I have ta go sit w/my DSis as she is gonna have a needle biopsy. She found out taday that she has a 18mm mass in her left breast. Also we have another contract on the house & the guy wants ta close on Mon. (Talk about fast!) We will have 16 people here on Thanksgivin' day for Dinner. Woosh! Week after next I'm gonna exhausted!

    PS Sue- Hooray for you ta git ta sew!!!!

    QNSue ... good for you for the plan ahead! Are your DD/DSIL/DGS coming too?

    CarrieM ... I'm sure you are frustrated with all the forced downtime. Here;s hoping the pool does help.

    GGal ... Frog stitching is not fun ... my best solution is to enjoy some nice music while I focus on the task. Seems to help minimize the agony!

    Anael ... you are fully excused ... you have been a bit under the weather lately! Do not fret, please? Lovely sweaters. Of course, would be nicer to see the REAL things!

    DDamsel ... FYI you can KEEP your "nasty cold blowing wet windy day outside", ALL to yourself!

    Dublb - you are such a busy, busy gal! Hurrah on the sale of the house, I hope it goes through this time. Prayers for your DSis, that is so scary! I think I'm having around 16 for dinner as well on Thanksgiving.

    QNS - great news on the eye! Wow 20/20! I am very near sighted! I wore a mono-vision lens for years, now am into glasses (for distance). I don't wear them much around the house.

    Anael - I have not knitted anything but pot holders in years! I knit them while we are traveling, double cotton yarn squares. LOL - I don't have to think about them, knit every row, once they are on the needle!
