    February does seem like its getting closer; Is it everyone's decision to let the blocks get acquainted and not revel them until then? I have a bad habit of going back to see what everyone's MB looks like 'cause my memory does not remember everyone's blocks. True, we are nearer the end and some may not wish to show all they have collected to date and probably everyone's memory is better than mine...so I am merely asking because several have not shown theirs lately...as is their privilege, I guess, since it is theirs and their decision.

    Honchey, DH loved your Rice Pudding, said it was so like his Mother's that he really has enjoyed it. Ms. Claus discovered no flour in the house, so no cookies were made today, and therefore, nothing will be shipped tomorrow. I will send out smoke signals when they depart. Garage is in better shape but not ready to put the cars in yet. Another nice day tomorrow by forecast, and lets hope we all have a sunny day.

    QNS Chocolate Slice is a biscuit slice, will find the recipe and post it later. Almost finished cleaning my room and putting things back is a chore.

    Good news from the Doc, everything is within normal parameters. I can start breathing again

    I haven't posted all my blocks for a month, just waiting on the next two, November is a little late but it is coming and then there is the December block. Maybe next week the postie will be nice to me??

    Great MB posted...look forward to seeing some more.

    Mirabelle--great news from the doctor!!

    I went to the doctor today too...he did an ultrasound of my shoulder looking all around and couldn't find anything visible. So, the next step is a EMG. He thinks there might be something going on that's nerve related since I have weakness in my arm. My appt is on Jan 9th...in the meantime I am to take a pill to help reduce the nerve pain.

    Home most of tomorrow so maybe I'll be able to get to the clubhouse. I am making some minky scarves for the kids for Christmas, so need to get those done. Also I have a pillowcase to make for one of DD's friends. I don't work again until the Saturday after Christmas. I hope to get a couple small projects done...none of which should take too long. It's just a matter of getting started.

    JeanieG ... likewise, I get bored doing matchy matchy quilts! Last night I was FMQ doing swirls all over, and was bored with that too, and thinking, oh how much more fun it would be to FMQ a sampler than an all over pattern. Then there's the part of ADD that causes so many WIP and PhDs! Any sneak previews of your BH WIP?

    QuiltE - Here are the first three steps of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I am not done with all the steps yet, the chevron 2nd step takes a lot of time.

    Mirabelle - congratulations on the great report from your Dr. What wonderful news! Carrie, hopefully your shoulder problem will be taken care of soon too.

    OH GG ya are just sharin' alot taday! I just love your pineapples!

    I went & bought the fabric for my Dec MB. Sigh I can't believe that I did this. (This is what I git for goin' & readin' ahead & plannin' 2 blocks at the same time.) I did a rush job & it's alright but if I had the time I'd go & git more fabric & switch the colors. I also would have washed the glue out before mailin' it but it's just gotta go as is. I'll mail it out tamarrow!

    Here is my Chocolate Slice Recipe

    Base
    4 oz butter
    1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
    1 cup desiccated coconut
    1/2 cup plain flour sifted
    1/3 cup Self Raising flour sifted
    1 tablespoon cocoa
    1 egg beaten

    Melt butter, stir in all other ingredients.

    Grease an 8 x 11 tin (I line mine with baking paper) Spread mixture evenly into tin, wet hands works best for this.
    Bake in moderate oven 20 minutes until just firm to touch.

    Icing
    1 cup icing sugar
    1 tablespoon cocoa
    1 teaspoon soft butter
    1 tablespoon milk approximately

    Mix all together to make a thick paste

    As soon as slice is out of the oven spread icing mixture over it. Let stand for 10 minutes. You can sprinkle a little coconut on top is you wish. Slice into bars and allow to cool in tin.

    Enjoy
    Karen

    Mirabelle, that looks so delicious! I think I won't make them because I have to eat it all myself
    Congrats on the good news!

    Jeanie, you're so brave! I wouldn't have the patience to do all those small pieces and so many of them. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

    Carrie, sorry you still don't know anything. Hopefully that pill works reducing the pain.

    Mirabelle, you don't really think this will last till it's in the freezer now do you?

    Did you see the Sylvia thread? I didn't see you there signing up!

    Honchey, have fun with DJ and relax a couple of days...."chill" and enjoy.

    Thanks, Mirabelle, for the recipe...I will have to try that. I copied and saved it off.

    I think all of you have encouraged me on for a long time; I never would have finished FWSQ or the PC without that encouragement. Now we have finished BB and finishing the MBs, but are you stopping???No. Anael's sewing up a storm with Sylvia, Carrie with 50 stars, and DJ is coming onto the scene. Onward we go, not really decided what to do. Everyone have a good day.

    Anael ... yeaaaaaaaa you took your bike out! No biking here, with all the snow!

    GGal, DDamsel and JanieW ... Great blocks!

    MiraB ... Thank goodness for a good Dr. Report. Indeed you can breathe again ... and we can get untensed!
    You'll soon be going into withdrawal with no sewing! Do you have MrMiraB home now til Christmas? Enjoy your day away with your DD and then, soon enough she will be home with your for Christmas. Thanks for the recipe and will try it sometime when I need to make something sweet! Did you make the 2nd batch and send some home with your DS?

    **now wondering** ... how soon before Anael makes the Aussie Chocolate Slice?

    CarrieM ... enjoy your retirement! Are you continuing with therapy until the EMG appt? Let's hope the January appointment gives more clarity. I bet you are frustrated, though the good news is that they are continuing to look further at it for you and not just dropping the ball,

    JeanieG ... so far colour, but no real clue as to what it will be! Anticipation!

    Honchey .. you are ahead of me as I have yet to install DJ! I promise ... it'll be a priority once my two Christmas items are done. Binding the quilt now and the topper is waiting to be quilted.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Sew many ideas ... just sew little time!!

    I'm sure Jan 2 will be fine with whomever gets your block dublb. I am like Honchey, I am not done with my Dec. MB yet either. I got most of it put together today, and hopefully can get it finished by tomorrow.

    I'm practicing my FMQ skills. I came across a stunning Christmas Stocking yesterday here on the board and I thought to give it a try. Problem is the feathers don't stand out from a distance, not even after echoing them. I think I should have used matching thread? Any advice?

    Looks beautiful to me, Anael. Its much better than I could do, so you are way above my league there.

    Bev, Honchey and Jeanie, thanks for the encouragement on MBs, I have not started mine yet, so there may be a number of late MBs arriving late. But late is better than never. Its a busy time of the year. Nor have I sent out the little surprise boxes stateside yet...so they are running late as well. Time has gotten away from me this year...no excuses...except no flour for cookies...and I got it yesterday. Best intentions of the day, will see what develops today.
