    Every row gained, Mirabelle, means there is one less to go! You know you would rather have DH point it out in construction rather than dd after she gets it! Yes, Mirabelle, the answer was a perfect fit.

    Finished Loosey Goosey SYE this afternoon, everywhere the gander went, flowers seem to sprout up! Wonder if they go in a row like the ducks do? Downloaded all the other patterns including December, and printed out all the patterns. Looked at the MB coming up..that I need to make. Trying to form a plan to move myself forward...and take the first baby steps.

    Anael and GrannyQ and and sorry no smilie for prayers but they are there too.

    Checked my email before on QB--oh a triple answer!

    Finally a picture of GGal's pretty block--now to find the cord et al.

    Oh mirabelle--hope you get over the "cross eyed" quilt and it's fun (?) and done.

    Guess it's super hero capes for the NC Grands. Better get sewing.

    If you have time, check out the quilt of the week....a Dear Jane by lacework, an Irish lass who raised over $34,000.00 for a very special charity home by making a quilt of houses (with a group). She made the DJ in 6 months and 22 days.(Used the format a trip around the world, and hand quilted the 86 inch square quilt.) She used over 5500 pieces in hand piecing and machine sewn. Beautiful job. I seen that JanRN had commented on both postings, so she found it also. Something to thing about, to cheer us onward in January 2014.

    I'm baaaaaaaaack!

    Have done all my catch-up reading.

    Anael ... I;m ever so glad to know you are back home ... and feeling so much better than your last hospital stay. Let's hope all continues so.

    GrannyQ ... {{{{HUGS}}}} as you continue on with your treatments and wait for your husband's next appointment to discuss.

    Some great new MBs have arrived and been shown to us ... I've lost track, but I'm thinking there are still some November MBs?

    As always BusyBMiraB has been productive ... it was fun to see the ongoing progress. And so nice to see all the RonaldMcD quilts together.

    Looks like many of us are dealing with similar weather ... except of course, MiraB!
    Yesterday it hit 15C, and then started to drop rapidly at sundown. Will be a long time before we see double digit positives, I am sure!

    Am hoping for a good weekend of ME time ... which you know what that means!

    Take care Honchey ... and yes, drugs can be your friend at times.
    I know you will use them responsibly. {{{HUGS}}}

    Honchey I hope you are feeling a little better and it won't be long before you have permanent relief for you pain.

    QuiltE so nice to have you back with us.

    I will take a pic of my progress in the next few days, I am back on the highway tomorrow to pick up DS at the airport, also to visit with DD who is not well at the moment. She had blood taken today for testing, the Doc thinks she has either a very bad flu or Denghi Fever. Either may require hospital stay. Denghi fever is a mosquito born virus which can be very debilitating. Won't know anything until Tuesday

    Happy to help NinaSue

    Prayers and hugs coming your way, Mirabelle for your daughter. Good to hear DS is back from his flight and you are the taxi taking him home...Mothers need a few minutes with son to touch base with them.

    Honchey, do be careful with that knee, it can buckle and send you down if you are not careful. I asked the specialist for suggestions with my knee and he suggested the brace and it has worked out wonderful in support.

    QuiltE, glad to know you have some time for yourself. That is important to be kind to thyself.

    Thanks, GardenGal for the name I was seeking. Thanks to those who sent the pp I was seeking, as my computer/ printer is not printing out the right scale regardless of what I do or do not do with that site.

    IF our luck holds, we can stay home until Tuesday.

    Mirabelle, I hope your DD will get good reports on Tuesday! Big (((((HUGS))))

    GrannyQ, big ((((HUGS)))) for you too! !

    Dublb, I hope you'll feel better soon. And I do hope you'll get old but without all the hurting!!

    I didn't do anything today besides running errands, knitting and watching movies Oh I made goulash today, didn't have it though because I had pizza Tomorrow it's even better!

    Tomorrow Mick and the twins will be here for a short while. And of course the proud parents too
    Homecare will continue their visits. The nurse told me today they want to be sure everything is ok and she wasn't so sure today. It's ok with me, I'm quite scared to get another infection so better be on the safe side!
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat

    Anael as you very well know those little ones seem to walking viruses! I swear I'd have a lot less colds etc if they weren't so close and here everyday. Take care and continue to get well.

    Dublb, hope you get to feeling better tomorrow...and that it warms up there for you. I forgot TEXAS is a whole another state...I can vision that mail person struggling with their pony, getting it headed in the right direction since the packet was taken out of the Post Office on the sixth and delivered on the seventh. LOL!!

    OK, kids do carry germs; we learned that quickly in the school systems we worked in, in various states of the Union. Always was told when we were growing up in Iowa, IF we were on the beach where it was warm, colds would disappear. WE tried that in our career, and it did not work. However, I had less problems in Alaska than anywhere.

    Making the tiger block in SYE reminded me of the pair of tiger cubs kids were carrying as a 'kitten' in the CC airport, cute as can be. The Fisherman restaurant in Arkansas on 181 Highway had a pair of beautiful Siberian tigers, and were raising 3 cubs when someone torched the place...destroying the animals and the restaurant. So sad. They had a Tuesday special of all you could eat for $2.25...chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, dessert and drink. It was a favorite of senior citizens. They rebuilt, but did not get any more animals.

    Hi all, just have time to pop in and say hello to you all. My DIL is home from the hospital and still sore and needing lots of care. The three kids also need attention and tlc so it's a busy time. I will likely be here til the new year unless her parents make an appearance but who knows.

    my husband just called to tell me my block from GrannyQ arrived. I won't be able to see it or drool over it until I get home but I want you to know it arrived safely. Thanks grannyQ.

    we have had a killer winter storm with over 50 cm of snow and now it has turned really cold. It was -53 with the windchill on Friday night. Yikes.

    I have no idea when I'll get on again so will take this opportunity to wish you all a happy holiday!!

    best to you all
    Janie

    Anael ... I bet you feel so "good" to be out running errands, just a few days after! So good that your Homecare are providing you with such great home care ... you just don't want to go down that road again! Have fun tmro with all your visitors!!!

    QNSue ... less problems in Alaska because the frost kills the bugs! The worse thing is when we have the flip floppy somewhat warmish weather ... they breed like craaaazy, and then we humans suffer.

    OKSGlad ... now don;t go and get any bugs from the grands. Christmas is coming and you have no time to get sick!!

    JanieW ... So glad to see you drop by, amidst your busy-ness. Here's to good progress for your DDIL. I've been following your weather on the TV .... and I swear I am feeling your cold, despite it being no where near that here!

    It is snowing here, let it snow, let snow!! Love it, as long as we don't have to drive anywhere in it or any kind of traveling. Beautiful coming down, looking at it from the inside of a warm house. At least the temp is now 16 above instead of zero. Keep warm and keeping smiling everyone.

    You can keep the snow QNS, I don't want it here yet!

    If I remember correctly some of you want to start a Sylvia Bridal Sampler. Do you all want to start at the same time and if so, when? I'm thinking of starting a seperate thread for the SBS otherwise we would have nowhere to go and show our gorgeous blocks

    Nope, not me. I have collected fabric for 50 stars and Dear Jane...and hope to start them in January....but I have plenty of UFOs to entertain me until then.

    Sounds like you are feeling better, Anael, to be thinking of projects again, and that is good news...way to go!

    QNS--exactly what I was thinking--Anael's feeling like her old self again. Yeah.
    I hope Janie's got some handwork to do while she's on CARE duty--but then she may be too tired to even want to sew after keeping a busy household together. And brrrr it's cold in Alberta as well as Texas. Keep warm and safe dublb!! Ice is worse than snow.
    We have a light snow today--the fairy fine variety that continues to add up. Temps have moderated to the mid teens. Decided to fore go church--county roads never get cleaned off very well on weekends and soon become snow-packed especially with all the hunters out for 1st weekend of rifle deer season. So staying inside and have the "tree" quilt all quilted. Now to get the binding on and then a photo op. Then a couple of MB's to make as it's quilt guild tomorrow so another Oregon Trail block to make along with ?????'s ?????? block. Winter weathre advisory until tomorrow morning.
    Did get a batch of fudge made, too. I needed a quilting break. Later.

    yummy fudge, might have to sneak in for some

    Anael I am all organised to make Sylvia's Bridal Sampler, wanted to make it this year but other things got in the way. I was going to follow along with Dear Jane and make 2 SBS blocks per week but of course I wouldn't be posting pics of my blocks then. So if you wish to start a new thread I would love to join you. This quilt has been on my list to do since we started FWS so very long ago

    I have hit the halfway mark on the Bargello, will take a pic of it today so you can all see the slow progress.
