    LOL Honchey---it took a couple count down numbers to realize what QE and Mirabelle were counting.

    Have fun in the salt mines Mirabelle

    I found one small piece of solid green fabric. I have to measure but it looks like it's just enough to make the backing. No FART.......but sewing time!!

My poor knees, I have to do all cutting of those large pieces on the living room floor Maybe I'll go upstairs now and tape the backing to the floor of the bedroom, but still all on my knees!!!!

    I've been getting a little sewing in...I got the border on a quilt for a friend yesterday and cut out a quilt for another friend. I get to sew again today since it is too cold to go anywhere.

    I haven't written much but short notes here and there, but wanted to say the MBs shown the last few days are really great! I have mine all ready to go to the post office...maybe on Thursday. MIL is feeling some better now...thankfully. I go get my EMT done on my shoulder Thursday morning. Archery tournaments have started so my Saturdays for the next several weeks will be spent taking the kids to those.

    Good Morning...I hope everyone is tucked in, warm & cozy.. 3 degrees with wind chills 17 below....

    Sister & her DH drove up from Delaware to have her shoulder surgery this a.m. I have to meet her DH to drop off some groceries she asked me to get for her...Shoprite is having a big Can-Can sale..they have it every January...Jan you should know about that sale...
    I am so comfy right now I don't want to get out of my Jammies...I do have to pack some clothes for DH to take when he leaves on Thursday...I only want to take one bag when I fly down at the end of month..or earlier I hope.. I see the surgeon this Friday...

    Oksewglad, you'll be pleased to know I'm working on my first mini....The only drawback so far is working on small pieces with fat fingers and it's mostly all from scraps!!!

    JeanieG...any news on your MB yet???

    Anael, You should shop a hardware store for the strap on knee pads that carpet/tile installers use to protect their knees...either that or get a gardeners foam pad that they use when kneeling to do their work...I think I'd rather see you in the knee pads

    Carriem, I'm hoping you can get your shoulder problem resolved soon...it's no fun having pain all the time..

    Time to go..see ya later...

    Hahaha Honchey, I can see myself in the knee pads too It's my kneecap which is bothering me, for years and years now. I did the sandwiching on the dining table with my quilt table on top. It worked!

    Look what's going on in my back yard. Never seen this before in January!

    You did IT, MiraB ... I'd probably dump the iron into my lap, if I had it right next to me! I often think of the mangle we had when I was a kid and how handy it would be for ironing yardage. As a kid, that was a "fun" chore!! Such a young thing, married in '78!

    CarrieM ... and I think it took MiraB a while to figure it out too!

    Honchey ... now you'll be Home Alone! And you know what the mouse does when the cat is away!!

    Anael ... are you sure that is a January pic? and not teasing us with a summer pic. The roses are so pretty!

    JanieW ... now that's more realistic!!! Your July shot is a beauty ... need to enlarge and frame that one up then hang on your wall for hopes of spring to come.

    Next thing, MiraB will be showing us banana trees and pineapples (growing, not quilts!)

    QuiltE, yes I'm sure. Took it this afternoon just before posting

    Janie, wow that's a LOT of snow! ! ! ! Hard to imagine it's the same view! You do have gorgeous flowers. I used to have lilies as well but they were eaten by those nasty bugs.

    Janie, love that contrast of the two pictures but think you were standing in two slightly different positions; closer to the fence in second beautiful summer picture. Of course, who wants to stand in the snow drift to take a picture...wise choice there. Frame the two pictures back to back and flip them with winter in the summer, and summer in the winter! Let it snow, but blow the chilly below zero weather back up into the Arctic circle!

    Honchey, what a good time, it would be for sister to visit and do a few FART trips for a reward for doing the dental surgery by yourself! Talk to the dentist about the flying, because air pressure might affect the gums bleeding, don't know for sure, but please check it out. Better to be safe than sorry. AF would not let me fly until after so many days of delivering our first daughter in Anchorage back to Kenai. And they considered it an 'easy' delivery... of course, they were male doctors.

    Anael, your rose pictures remind me of Las Cruces, NM., this time of year. They bloomed every month except February there. My DGM would always start out with a coat or sweater in the mornings, but often just left it in the car, could not believe she wasn't going to need it in the winter months there. You and Mirabelle enjoy that wonderful warm weather, while the rest of us just 'chill' out. LOL!!

    I like the last (attached) picture. It's not the same as the second one. I think in the last picture the colours are very well balanced.

    QuiltE I'm a bit slow sometimes its an age thing or so my children tell me.

    JanieW what beautiful photos, love the contrast of the seasons.

    Anael you grew roses for me how sweet of you

    Honchey take care and I hope everything goes well for you.

    NinaSue I like the darker border, I think it frames the centre better.

    Carriem, thinking of you and hope you also get good results, I have found that quilting really hurts a lot but piecing doesn't...It must be the weight of dragging and pulling the quilt top. So I will only quilt small projects or quilt in sections.

    I think our heat wave has broken, DH left for work at 3am and I was woken at 4am by a torrential downpour, we had 3 inches of rain in an hour and we have had light showers this morning.

    The house is clean, the fridge is full and I am off to the cave for some serious sewing, chat later
