    Anne - I got my block today in the mail. Ohhhh beautiful. I'll take a photo and post a little later!

    Anael - KK is looking anything but happy with your applique work. My kitty just likes to lay on all the fabric. I have a devil of a time quilting, all the fabric with batting and backing is like a lure! "Here I come", he seems to say - and plops down right where I need to quilt!

    QNS - will you share a recipe for that yummy looking cake? Wow, this looks wonderful, I can smell it already!

    My DH put a Home Depot Wardrobe cabinet in the garage for me to store my batting and backings and other stuff in. We put shelves on both sides (suppose to have a rod for hanging clothes), so I'll have plenty of extra storage. I also bought a new dresser to put in my sewing room. The one I have in there (3 drawer) for my scraps and fat quarter size pieces is so full, I can't get any more fabric in there. My neighbor was cleaning out a storage area and gave me a paper size box full of fabric. No room!!! I also have a lady, I have never met, who had fabric to give away on freecycle a couple of years ago. She and several friends make charity quilts. She does not use or save scraps or strips! She gave me three shopping bags full of their fabric scraps. She has done this about two or three times a year. She sends me email, and I go to her house, about a mile away, and she has two or three bags on her porch for me. I iron all the pieces, and put in my 1 1/2", 2", and 3" bins. I use my Sizzix Big Shot to cut the small pieces into 1 1/2",2", 2 1/2" squares and put in the corresponding bins. Many of the pieces are large enough to fold and put in the dresser by color. Right now, I have two shopping bags, that she gave me right after Christmas, to get time to cut up. My new dresser comes on Thursday, so I'll re-organize my whole room.

    Carrie, happy for you...may it continue to heal and be less painful.

    JeanieG, you sound very busy with your sewing room; good luck in reorganizing the room. The cake is semi-homemade. I started with a Duncan Hines Delectable Carmel Cake, lined the bottom of my pan, and three days later I felt like baking the cake. I opened a large can and a small can of sliced pineapple and drained the juice into measuring cups. Placed the pineapple on top of the pan liner, and put the cherry in the middle. Reserved one whole cup of juice to use in the cake batter instead of water, had two slices of pineapple leftover that I cut up and threw into the cake batter. Mixed up with the leftover pineapple juice cornstarch and brown sugar and coated the pineapple in the bottom of the pan with that. Mixed up the cake batter with the cup of pineapple juice, the two slices cut up of pineapple, vegetable oil, and 3 large eggs and poured it over the pineapple slices in the bottom. Directions said to add the dry caramel over the top of the cake last and swirl it into the batter, which I did in swirls. Baked it according to directions and upset it into another larger pan to cool. Turned out great. Surprised me.

    Carriem I hope life gets back to normal for you soon and that you heal fast.

    Another great recipe from NinaSue, I will have a piece in the RV thank you..

    JeanieG you are going to be busy reorganising your sewing space, and how wonderful for you to receive such a treasure trove of scraps.

    I have just finished cutting the centre panel for Darkness, took me 2 days and 318 pieces, may start sewing it today.

    Wow what a lovely picture of you and GGD, Jeanie...look at you looking so young and on the floor, too, holding her!! I have not been able to sit on the floor like that for the last twenty years...and you would pass for forty to fifty years young! What a special photo moment to treasure! Looks like she may flavor you in looks, too. Luck child!

    Here is a photo of the sweatshirt. My daughter found it in a mall around 15 or 16 years ago. My grandkids love it, so that is why I wore it on Sunday - five of them were here for dinner. Of course I have had seven more grandchildren since this was made! LOL (Joe and I have six kids between us.) Talk about an old sweatshirt - my clothes seem to last a long time, and I cannot just get rid of them until they wear out!

    You KNOW I am the same age as you QNS! I can get down, but have a harder time getting up - usually use something to hold on to. I thank the Lord for my health and mobility! The blocks I was playing with Aubree, have been kept in the blue bucket they came in when my first grandchild, Keara, was born almost 24 years ago. All the grands have loved them, and now Aubree loves to bang those big leggo blocks together.

    Yep, I know JeanieG, but those DGC have been keeping you years younger looking! Or maybe its the California sun.

    So my Dear Jane packet from Quilting on the Square came yesterday. Anael ask for a picture and I took one on displayed it on site, but not all of us go there, so thought I would display it here as well. Reproduction of the thirties is the first packet, the second is more modern batiks kit.Name:  DSCN0095.JPG

    Jeanie, thanks so much for "sharing" another grand with us--what a cutie!!

    QNS, those are beautiful fabrics. I'm partial to the batiks and think they'll make an awesome DJ. I'm using scraps for mine, same fabrics as FWS & PC quilts. I'm not real into DJ yet; I have 8 blocks made. I'm skipping the applique and most of the y-seams. Maybe I'll just make a DJ table runner or as QE suggested snarkily LOL a lot of coasters!

    Thanks for all the suggestions about getting wax of my iron. I used a paper bag and got all of it off. Glad you reminded me not to use salt on the Teflon bottom. I tried ironing the fabric thru the paper bag but it didn't pick up any more wax. I'll just put that on the bottom of the "brown pile" and not use it except maybe for a tote bag.

    Ohhh, I really like those batiks! They will make beautiful blocks! Are you making two quilts, one with the 30's fabrics and one with batiks?

    That's the plan for the next two years...will see what happens...I have a large tote to put them into each month. No clear vision yet of the 'doing it' part, wish I could attend a local class on it and be shown visually how to, but if I push myself forward leaving three tracks in the snow, it might get done. ( Two feet and rear dragging along!)

    NinaSue I love your story of leaving tracks in the snow, so funny. What beautiful fabric for your DJ and how different both quilts will be.
    Two other QB members who shall remain nameless have been gently guiding me towards participating in DJ. I am beginning to weaken, even thinking about fabric. will keep you all updated. (I am such a sucker)

    I have missed alot in the last couple of days...WOW...so much going on.. I'm so glad you like the MB I sent Jeanie..It's called Sprokets and it's from Quilter'scache..I did have to enlarge the pattern...
    Carriem, I hope your recent Dr's visit is successful...
    Dublb, Happy happy anniversary!.
    Mirabelle..nudge, nudge, nudge!!!
    QNS, I think the corner fits perfectly....Don't go anywhere in the snow
    Great to see all the personal photos of families...


    I made my reservation to go south for next Wednesday. there's only one airline that flies between NJ & NC....
    My appt. with the oral surgeon wasn't too happy on my part...he doesn't know what's going on but if the antibiotic he prescribed doesn't work I have to have the tooth removed ,graft bone , implant , then a fake tooth..so he says!!!!
    my personal dentist is furious and wants to see me this afternoon...between the mouth & my knee it's a sad situation for me..I feel like I'm falling apart...
    On a lighter note..The gallery sometimes has a promotion where they take a trade in for a new machine...a Pfaff with IDT was traded in..it's not too clean in the general sense but nothing that a little elbow grease can clean up....It runs beautiful..not alot of fancy stitches.
    like the IDT feature that's why I got it...I have to pick it up tomorrow to make sure my boss doesn't sell it from under me...
    well, the kids are coming this afternoon after school and I'm trying to figure out what to make for dinner.....something easy...so I'll check out for now....

    QNS,

    The border fits, but iI think you lost the light/dark pattern. Last square on the bottom row at the far right should be dark. Also 7 rows down, you started to put two lights together. Tweak it a bit and you might like it more.
