    Oh dublb - what a wonderful thing for you hubby to do! He is surely a keeper! So glad you are feeling better, it is no fun to be sick on Christmas and miss all the rest of the family.

    We went to my sister's house tonight, for a gift exchange with my siblings (1 sister and 2 brothers) families. There were two nieces, and one nephew with their children, and our son and his family came over too. Such fun to see these nieces and nephew's families. Don't get to see them very often. One of my three grandsons was playing on the patio with some of the other cousins - spinning around and fell, hitting his face on a brick planter. Of course he needed three stitches and has a slight concussion. My hubby drove our son, DDIL and grandson to the hospital. Always something at a family gathering it seems!!!

    Dublb, nice that your DH came through for you and that you are feeling better. Do take care and do not overdo until completely over all the 'bad' stuff in thee body. Rest is the may key, and drink plenty of liquids.

    JenaieG, kids will be kids, no matter how much parents and adults try their best to keep them safe. Good news is that he will live to tell about it. Good news that your dh stepped up to help out. His is a keeper for sure.

    The K.LQS is having a 40 off all her 44/45 inch fabric this week only....grrr. Love the price, but talking to self, you don't need it, you have enough fabric...and repeating that. Will see, its very tempting. Very tempting.

    Everyone catch your breath, and rest up for the New Year...just five days in the 2013 year.

    Alas!! here I am!!!

    What a week ... power off, then back on, then off, and has stayed on since Monday. Then I really had to get the pedal to the metal to get my exchange gift finished and the rest of Christmas "readying" completed. By yesterday I was ready for a day off, and pretty much did that!

    There's been more snow every day/night and that has continued to cause more outages, as the weight of the ice then the snow was too much. Now they are fearing for tonight, as the expect high winds.

    I am thankful for the short time that mine was out (almost 24 hrs, then another 6), in comparison to those who six days later have not been reconnected. Have often thought, thank goodness I was still not on the farm with cows to be milked, chores to be done (like OKSGlad)... though there, we had a generator, so virtually never were without power! There are still many in my area without hydro. It has been noted in the media as one of the trouble areas of rural Ontario that are just not getting back to normal.

    So with patience, we can endure all things .......... though I am hoping to not have to endure another round tonight! There is no sign of a meltdown anytime soon ... so patience, my dears, if I disappear again!


    JeanieG ... your potatoes were a hit! Peeled and chopped them on Tuesday. (Yes I know the recipe says unpeeled, but skins were just too tough to leave on.) Then started the crock at 6am to have ready for me to leave for the noon meal. Travelled well ... and yes, they will be a regular in my kitchen repertoire now! Hope your Grand is doing OK after his tumble. How did the siblings like their tree quilts? Did you get a photo of your completions?

    JanRN ... both Rosies are fantastic!!! And here you are talking about longer days, warm weather ..... and spring!!

    MiraB .... oooooooooooh for your Bargello Beauty! So, did you get your batteries for Christmas? I feel for you without the internet, having just gone thru that. I'm sure you can relate with how many times I went to the computer and then say, duhhhhhhhhh!! Eventually, I got away from that!

    MiraBsDD ... maybe time to get your Mom "into" an iPhone, so she does not get withdrawal? So good that you are there to help with her smoke signals! Have been wondering how much sewing you two did during your Christmas visit? Did you get your DBro sewing with the two of you, after MrMiraB flew off?

    QNSue ... How nice to see your treadle. Love the contrast with your modern machine behind it! I'll be watching to see what the huskies deliver to me!

    DublB ... hopefully you are feeling better! Unlike the others, I will not suggest that your DS quit smoking ... you can't change her. Though it might be time for you to just say, I cannot visit you!!

    Anael ... glad to see Isa is a fashionista with her "bling" sweater! Sweet pics of all three. So how is your Rosie doing?

    Ladies .... a Late Merry Christmas to each of YOU from me ........ enjoy this holiday season, whether at home or on the roam. I always try to just do what I want to do for the week ... and not get into any "work" projects, whether the paying type or work around my home (other than the necessities). Of course, you can pretty much guess what that might be for me!

    My brothers and sister's families just loved their wall hanging. We had a dessert night last night to exchange gifts and visit. Here is a photo of the wall hanging. It does not hang perfectly flat because of the light wiring in the back, but I am pleased with how they turned out. I may have to see if I can find another kit and make one for myself! The second photo shows my attempt at quilting all the details. I tried to follow the different stars and snowflakes.

    Welcome back QuiltE I'm not on the roam, it's raining here and won't stop I've been working on a few DJ blocks - the applique ones. Still not my favorite but I'm getting better at it!

    Beautiful wallhanging Jeanie! I can imagine you want one for yourself I would too ! !

    Jeanie, beautiful wall hanging--love the burgandy & gold. Great job quilting. I'm sure your giftees appreciated all the work that went into them.

    I think I'm going to end up with a mini Dear Jane. I already decided I wasn't going to do the applique ones now all I'm running into are bleeping Y-seam blocks. Yes, I did one and it turned out fine. Tried another one and it just didn't work. Ripped it apart so many times I don't have any fabric left in the seams. So if I skip applique and bleeping y-seams, I may finish with only 50 blocks!

    Since I am going with Quilting on the Square with Dear Jane, maybe, just maybe, I can find an answer for you JanRN. I get my first package around the middle of January....I can hardly wait to see how they explain each block and how to do it...and where they start for the DJ. If I am in the 'groove' I can do a good Y seam, if I am not, forget it!''

    JeanieG I am so impressed with your wall hanging! Beautiful.

    Anael, make a big yellow sun to hang on your wall when it rains too much for you. Let it lift your spirits and smile at you. Make it on paper or with fabric as a wall hanging.

    QuiltE, welcome back, you were missed! Hope Janie made it home for the holidays. Quiltsville blog (Bonnie Hunter) in Burlington talked about how terrible the ice storm was there....how the ice broke down trees and power lines. I am following her 'clues' for her mystery quilt...but not making them right now.

    My new glasses balance my left and right eye, so I finally can see and sew. Hope to get started in the quilt room tomorrow. Picked up chicken feed and cat feed today, and yes, I stopped at the the LQS, sigh. Picked up a rainbow of colors for the 50 stars...will try to put one together tomorrow. I can finally read, also, and picked up a few good titles today. How many know Earlene Fowler's quilt stories? She also has released a Benny Harper Quilt Patterns book, designs used in her book series. Have kept about half of her books, and have the pattern book.

    Also have all of Debbie Macomber series on Cedar Cove, and her Angels on Earth series, and her Knitting series, and her Cookbook of Cedar Cove. Janet Evanovick, Stephanie Plum series, from one to twenty and several Nora Robert books. Catherine Coulter's FBI books of suspense. Fern Michaels Sisterhood series, group of women who plot and get revenge against the 'bad' men who did them wrong, and they get away with it. Carolyn Brown series on the Texas' Honky Tonk Bar and Dance Saloon' , the seven different women who inherited the business and found true love, with lots of laughter in every novel; including "Darn Good Cowboy Christmas". Emily Brightwell who writes English mysteries Mrs. Jeffries series....Mrs. Jeffries Forges Ahead is a later title. Stay warm and healthy, enjoy quilting and reading.

    Sounds like a good idea, Barb. Relax and Enjoy and Rest. There are lots of things to do in 2014.

    An old friend I located in Southern Missouri in November wrote us that her husband had burnt up in a deer blind on the 13th of this month. Praying for her, and a friend, former co-worker in Texas who lost her husband this month. Enjoy every day life and families, life is just too short. Give family an extra hug.

    JeanieG ... your Tree with Lights looks spectacular! Amazing quilting and love the look of the lights. Definitely get one for yourself!!

    Anael ... Tell you what ... being that you are liking applique so much, how be we trade. I'll piece some blocks and you can send me some applique ones in exchange!

    JanRN ... BabyJane might be what I do as well!

    QNSue ... glad you are happy with your new glasses.

    CarrieM ... look forward to seeing your MBs!

    Speaking of which?? I know several are behind with their MBs for December, but I am wondering if some been received and never posted? I think the only ones I have seen on this thread was MiraB's to DDamsel and GGal's to me? Are there others waiting for their Kodak moment?

    And yes, my memory may be just baaaaaaaaad ............



    Heading to the sewing room ............. not sure just what I am going to sew!

    QuiltE, you wish You can do your applique yourself!! I found a tut on youtube to make the points more pointy so that's what I've tried and it works for me. The points still aren't crisp but I'm happy with them.

    I had some computer problems, lost some posts so thought I was the only one missing pics of the MBs. I know everyone has been busy with the holidays, but please pretty please some pics please! I love looking at what yinz have made and visualizing what each one's quilt will look like.

    Nice and sunny here today and 48* but by Sunday night rain, freezing rain and bleeping snow. I've been cooking all day--we're having Christmas dinner tomorrow but really enjoying the sun through my dirty windows while making my lasagne.

    The words FIRST Jane will never come from my mouth or fingers ........ other than to talk about YOUR FIRST Jane!

    Beautiful assortment of blocks Anael ... I particularly like the polk dotted one!
    Now, we need to see all 101 or whatever your number is now!



    Windows?
    Are we supposed to SEE through them?
    Interesting concept!!!!


    JanRN ... milder here today and tmro too ... then another plummet of the temperatures. Next thing TO will be whining about flood problems! I'll be glad to see some of this gone ... and ready for the next onslaught. Hopefully no more ice though! Snow, I will accept.

    Hi all

    I am home. We got home on Boxing Day .

    I am very tired and kind of at loose ends. I will post my December MB that I received from GrannyQ as soon as I can get the camera charged.

    it is storming again here. You can have our snow, QuiltE. We had 110 cm in November and another 50 in December and we are running out of places to put it.

    Hope everyone had a good holiday and that you are all doing the things that make you happy.
