    Thanks to Everyone for tolerating all my questions (and frustrations!) ... and for all your input to get me thru to the finish for the order. Then there's the learning curve once I get it all here IRL! .... then see me start pulling my hair out and screeeeeeeeeaming!

    It's in the middle of the night and I'm AWAKE

    QuiltE, what did you order????? Tell us! We want to know!

    Carriem, 48 Y seams WOW. You're brave! My BB should be finished day after tomorrow or should I say tomorrow as it's today already. Do I make any sense?

    Mirabelle, good to hear you're nowhere near those fires!

    Anael ... as soon as I saw your post I went *blink* and muttered to myself, "that woman should be sleeping!"
    I think we must have been posting at the same time, as my answer to your question is in the post before yours ... not going to consider the other reason you might have missed it! And with no sleep ... the BBs??

    Now back to counting your sheep and soon you'll sleep, Anael ......... zzzzzzzzz!!!



    I'm about to label the BBs for each of you.
    Hoping to make tomorrow's mail ... that'd be today for Anael!!

    Though I suspect ... yours will no doubt get to CarrieM much faster than mine!!

    woohooo ... BBs are rolling in at the CarrieM home!!

    How exciting for CarrieM .... all the excitement as each package arrives and able to "pet" each of the blocks!!!

    LOL QuiltE, now it's today

    I5, how exciting! I have one too, it's a HP machine. I've had it since last Spring and I love it.

    I'll have some more coffee and start working on the BB

    Everyone is making great progress on their BBs...keep it up! For those who haven't started, the official due date is February 15th (in my hands). If I get them all here early I will sort and send back before that.

    Off to run DD to some appts and then home to sew!! YAY!

    "Anticipa,a,ation, Your makin' me wait soo long." (Does that look like the song?)LOL
    It is rainin' here! Not much now. I went ta the Weather Station Web Site but it won't show me the map so I don't know how long or how hard it has been rainin'. It is a very cold rain. I got the fire in the fire place goin' as soon as I woke up. 10:30 am. I stay up late at night & sleep late. LOL

    I stay up till about 11.30 pm, sleep, wake up and go downstairs (as you all have noticed ), sleep again and wake up again between 7 and 8 am.

    My Bernina is back! The dealer just handed it over to me. I did a few teststitches and it's ok again! He's going to look into an alternative for a long/mid arm. I told him about the Janome 7700 and 8200 and he will do some searching. I'm in no hurry as I don't have the money yet to buy another machine.

    dublb: I don't know that song so I have no idea if it looks like it But just go ahead and sing a song for us!

    Now I'm going to prepare for a meeting tonight. Talk to you later again.

    Oh my! I spend 24 hours sleeping off the stomach flu and find so much is happening. What a busy group--I can't believe all the projects yinz have going on! What fun it's been to catch up (although I didn't read all the recipes--waiting for stomach to settle down and then I'll go back to them LOL).
    I did get my BB mailed and I'm biting my nails. I told Carrie to check them and if they need re-done to let me know. I think they're ok and I'm so anxious to see everyone's. I'm going to make a wall hanging for my sewing room to remind me of this Pony ride and all the good friends I've made.
    Got all the borders on Pony quilt, just need to attach the backing and binding. Was supposed to go on a FART today so I could get the backing fabric but think I need another day to recuperate. We have 2 nasty flus going around in our area: upper respiratory and stomach. News reports say this is the worst year for upper respiratory flu so yinz take care and wash those hands!! (Nurses are such nags!)
    Back to the couch for a little nap!

    JanR...I saw in the news last night that somewhere in PA, they actually have set up a tent in the parking lot to triage flu patients they have so many coming in. Feel better soon but don't rush it. You know better than me that relapses can be worse than the original!
    All...here is a Pam Bono website with a free BOM which we might find interesting. We can download it all now but there are 18 blocks . It looks like they have Y seams but, Jan...they are not Y seams! Mirabelle, you are doing that beautiful Pam Bono and others have said her quilts are not difficult but how would you grade something like this for our group and our skill levels? http://pamsclub.com/free-for-everyon...k-of-the-month. We will have to come to some sort of plan in the next few weeks.

    Those are cool gardnergal, I love it! Click on the last block and it will show you what the whole quilt looks like (no applique).

    Jan - nurses are not suppose to get sick! Doesn't the flu shot work for this flu??? Must have missed this strain in the serum! I was suppose to go the Dr. for an blood pressure check last Friday, and they called on Thursday saying my doctor was sick, so rescheduled the appointment. Even Dr.'s get sick!!!

    dublb - I am a night person too. Never in bed before midnight!

    My kitty sat on my keyboard and now it's acting weird (the keyboard ).

    I've seen that Pam Bono BOM a few times, even downloaded the patterns and was to intimidated to try. But if we all give it a go I'm in! It's not foundation piecing though. If we can gat this one right we can get everything right!

    Ggal--I think that quilt looks like a good one too. I download the blocks for "some day"...even if we don't do them as a group I will have them. Is there a special ruler or anything needed?

    Was going to sew, but DS thinks we should split some wood since it is almost 40*F today! It is supposed to cool off again this weekend, so he is probably right....might be able to sneak in a little sewing if I get off the computer.....

    Just got the mail...no package today. Guess I'll have to wait until after work tomorrow.

    Have just quickly checked out the BOM, just got out of the shower (and the computer is on the way to the bedroom) Had to check the chatter.
    The blocks do not look difficult, you just need to cut precisely and before you start sewing ensure that you understand her instructions, which are always very detailed I will definitely download these when I get home today.
    Wow we will have lots of choose from for our next project OR we just number them and work our way through them all
    Gotta get dressed and I am off to patchwork (okay I am wearing a towel) a very BIG towel

    I figure I just might be the 13th to sent my blocks to Carrie...still a work in progress..one hint...ladies, I read, I do NOT count...

    Love the chatter and news from all,...hope you to get to feeling better, JanRN. Gs has that flu and dd is catching it from him. Poor little tyke. I hate crowds this time of year, so hurried in and out of the stores today at K. LQS owner there has found her true love, and they are planning their wedding...so exciting!!

    Ggal, that's a great BOM. I love Pam Bono's patterns--all look very complex but when broken down into units like she does, they're not that difficult. Just label everything--it's easy to get things turned around (like Jeanie said about Easy Street). These are large blocks--16 1/2" so the finished quilt must be huge. If we do these I think I'll make bed or table runners. I just don't need another full size quilt.

    Jeanie, yes, docs & nurses do get sick but we're not allowed to rest. When my doc had emergency heart surgery this past year some patients actually complained because the office was closed!! We also make the worst patients--never follow instructions LOL. Instead of taking a nap today I went to Costco and came home and sewed.

    I tried one of the Compass Star blocks. The instructions are basic and the block fits together perfectly. Very nice block to work on. I followed Anne's suggestion and colored the sections with crayons because the hardest part is keeping the colors in the right places.

    QNS--from the sneak peek I got of your blocks I think you are doing a great job. You are close so at least the blocks won't take too long to get here.

    Jan--sounds like you might be feeling a bit better if you are sewing.

    We got lots of wood split this afternoon, but I wasn't able to sneak to the clubhouse before needing to come inside to start supper. Oh well...there is always this weekend.

    Carrie, you got a look at one idea. A May Be. Enough said. Still a work in progress.

    Finishing gs Camping Tent wall hanging; finishing gs wild animal baby quilt; working on BBs; working on PC blocks. Working on under-the-pillow-hanging down on both sides of the bed storage pockets for dh bed. Working on Magic squares throw for friend; working on another throw for a cousin; working on 're-do' of a throw for dh aunt; other than that it is pretty slow going here. Almost boring. Need to cut out another project.

    Hope you get to feeling better, JanRN. Hope the rest of us can avoid the germ all together.
