    I think I finished 2013 off with a bang so am sliding slowly into 2014. All my projects are really half done so not a lot going on, unless you want to count the 3 Blankets of Love I have made, they are only 26 inches square so a small distraction.

    So I have 8 Sylvia blocks, 3 Fab Stars, 10 Spike Blocks. Started another BOM from a blog I follow, made those 2 blocks today. Have 28 more stars to make and my Scrappy Stars will be an almost finish, started a Kaleidoscope for DD, made 2 blocks only 14 to go its going to be lap quilt. So have been busy, just that there is nothing to show for it YET!!!!!
    So a Christmas gift for QuiltE, maybe a kit, maybe some yummy fabric, don't keep us in suspense we need to know

    Missed you too DDamsel and beautiful blocks made for JanRN.

    QNS you are also starting off the New Year with a bang, lots happening in your sewing room

    It is so good to be able to see again, Mirabelle! Right eye is seeing 300 percent better, hard to believe it was that bad. And since I spent so many $$$$$ on sewing tables and machines last year, I am going to enjoy everyone of them this year...especially when its so cold outside and we have to spend $$$$ keeping our 'barn' house warm. Have the stash, have a gallon of Best Press on hand and away I go...in ten different directions!

    May have to unsubscribe to a few more quilt-letters, 'cause I am NOT spending $ on any special fabric 'deal' for a while...$ that I do not have. FabShopHop notified me of winning $10. in last October's hop...I wrote the Quilted Crow and passed the winning certificate on to the next person...nothing in my budget for that this month...the shops do the drawings to bring in more monies, with that money amount it never goes very far, and they are hoping to get ten fold back for their efforts of advertisement.

    Cold weather and its effects is affecting our visits to QB PC site...less talk here than usual. Stay save and warm everyone , and have a good day.

    You've got some beautiful blocks Jan!

    QNS, it's great you're having your eye sight back! I don't know how it is not seeing well and I hope I never find out!

    It's unusual warm here while it's unusual cold in the US. I went for a ride on my bike today, was great but I was glad to be home again. I've been quilting the next UFO, only needs binding.

    GoodMorning Ladies

    NinaSue!!! the kids devoured your snacks!!! there is only two little pieces of fudge left THANK YOU!!! for all you do

    Jan, Im glad your blocks arrived safely and you LIKE them

    I have been sewing like crazy but have accomplished nothing! I get started on one thing and then have to pack it up and quit! I did lay out and number every block of PC so now I can sew it together, BB is almost done, I was working on two quilts for my nieces, and ran out of steam a seam and I dont think it is to be had in town... so quit for now. I have ALL of my Just takes two ready to go, except a couple of applique blocks I have to wait on.... SO yesterday I started another... SIGH!!!! I made a Medallion center it is SO pretty! why do I feel so guilty?

    Have a good one ladies!

    DDamsel-sometimes life is like that. I know all about interruptions--there's a 4 yo waiting to get on the computer here! Earlier it was "Please Gram--a cup of cocoa." Oh what fun blocks to Jan, too.

    And I'm trying to get rid of UFO's--but I get so side tracked. QNS--how do you go 10 directions at once!! But what a treat to really see where you are going now! Are you getting snow? Think GGal will be in the path too.

    I liked making the note cards for my QB's at Christmas--so made a few more. Here's the link:

    Anywhere it is warmer, Honchey, its a good place to be. Poor fowl are all too cold, we have done what we can to ease the cold with some warmth into their houses with 75 watt bulbs.

    OKsewGlad, its creamy chicken and noodle time here...but not with chicken meat. Its a pork shoulder I cooked...it cost me about $10.00 at Wal Mart, and we have had four or five meals off of it, and still have half the meat in the refrigerator. Chopped up the fresh fruit from Christmas into a fresh fruit salad.

    DD, if you look closer, there should be some 'quilty' stuff in that box. At least two or three things were in every box this year. I believe that Ok and GG got the small 'crystal light' squares I had picked up on our Iowa Shopping Days. About 10 whole column of a pin-selection were included in some, and 8 yellow pin cushions and several different quilt patterns in others. Still no word from the one sent to Australia...hope the plane did not dive into the ocean.

    Sneaking on here and hoping I can get my "fix" without those annoying and dangerous pop ups.

    Is no one else getting them??

    Honchey.... it;s the hand quilting needles that I am interested in trying, two points with the eye in the middle. Being that I have not mastered hand quilting, I don;t have that learned skill to get in the way, and want to give them a try. Most here just look at me as though I am green and the rest say, no we don;t sell them.

    Will disappear now and try to catch up on a few other threads first, just in case the nasties show again.

    Stay Warm everyone ............ except for MiraB and Anael, looks like you don;t have any problems with that, right now!

    QuiltE, what browser are you using? I downloaded Adblock + to firefox because I couldn't stand those horrible toe fungus ads. No ads popping up since I did that.

    As for your hand quilting needles, I think these are what you are talking about.

    I have been happily sewing along on my Irish Mist quilt until today. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong, measured several times and I believe my cutting is correct, but the two pieces I am supposed to join just do not fit. Grrrr. I googled and found several blogs where the people have successfully made the quilt, no mention of problems at this step so it must be me. I have an SOS out to my buddy QNS who is making this along with me. I feel so stupid. Hope she comes along soon so I can have a bang my forehead moment when she sets me straight.

    Time to put it aside and go read as it is really bitter here today.

    No parcel this morning QNS maybe tomorrow will certainly let you know as soon as I get it.

    Wow Anael you are powering along, 4 already, I am impressed with your determination to finish things up.

    I am hoping to finish my Scrappy stars this week, made a decision last night about its size and it will be what it will be.

    So QuiltE did you tell us what your gift to yourself was, did I miss something or are you keeping us in suspense

    I am getting those Java pop ups when I click on the thread, very annoying but I just log out and come back again, will talk to DS about it, he is the computer guru, plus it gives him the chance to just shake his head at his mother

    Children love to correct their Mothers, Mirabelle, and at least, he lives close by. Our DS is in TEXAS and DD in Nebraska. DD has it fixed so she can log into our computers and fix them from where she lives.

    Janie is a very fast worker and has left me in her dust/smoke, I am not as far along on my Irish Mist. My quilt room was sooo cold today, I did not last very long there. Made a few suggestions to Janie, and hope one of us can figure out a solution...or...something will work out.

    Quilt-E, I am getting those pop-ups also. Tried googling how to get rid of them, but it seems very complicated. I've run my virus and adware protectors, but to no avail. Don't really know what they are, but are soooooo aggravating. Of anyone has a "cure" please let us know!

    Check your recent updates and what was in them; I did see some talk about Java update that caused trouble. Go back before the ad pop ups started. Delete those updates and try again. My defense system prevents popups...Bid Defenders,,advertised on QB site.

    Don't forget, QNS, I snuck ahead of you on the Irish Mist because you are working on a million other things as well and I am not. I think I solved the problem, an easy fix of cutting down the big triangle which is what you suggested first thing! I knew you would straighten me out !

    You will have time to catch up to me as I probably wont get very much done tomorrow .

    Thank you, Janie. You make a great pardner-in-crime of doing a quilt together and figuring out the pattern. I knew there was a reason why I stopped when I did; just had to wait for someone to come along and say, "This is the way to do it!" and then to show pictures of it makes the reasoning clearer. Two heads are better than one anytime... And there is no such thing as too many emails to find a solution.

    Either tonight or tomorrow night will be the coldest night of the year...then it warms up on Wednesday. 13 hens roosted with the guineas and ducks tonight. Guess they think its warmer there than the hen house. Will see what tomorrow brings forth. You all take care, be safe and be warm, and get a good night's sleep.

    Try Hancock fabrics; check on the for sale or advertise there on QB for some one may have it in their stash. Maybe piece it with another fabric...or find something that will go with what you have now...show a picture of it. Who knows you may find a match from our stashes....

    Here's a picture. As you can see I can't piece it with another fabric, that doesn't work. I need it fast, they have their birthday in 2 weeks!

    Anael what a sweet quilt for Isa, wish I could help you with your problem but I have never seen that fabric. Can you purchase any fabric locally?????? you're running out of time

    I have finished piecing my Scrappy Stars quilt, tomorrow will add the borders and it can go to the longarmer next week, my almost first finish for the year

    Thanks Mirabelle! Yes I can and I think I will have to. I'm been searching through my stash but I don't have enough of one fabric for the backing.
    I should not have switched the backings The backing I used for Isa's quilt was for Bram's quilt but I thought I had enough of the Cowboy fabric. Should have measured first.......I do have flowery and paisley fabric but that's not suitable for Bram's quilt! Another lesson learned!!

    Anael--great little quilt for Isa. For the backing--are you short on length or width? I sometimes will cut it down the middle and add the fabric there so it looks like it wasn't just added on the end/side. So for example if you have a blue that will match, you would have a strip of cowboy fabric, then blue, then cowboy again...just a thought.
