    My first money bank was a wooden barrel.
    Looks like I caught a cold, my nose is running and I'm coughing. I hope it's not getting worse, I don't have time for that! I'm down to 1 block to go! I will give you a peak of what it might be or maybe not :P

    QuitE, 'Sweet' quilters are always "stirring things up" !! That is why they are so successful with their quilts. LOL!

    Love the fabric colors, Aneal. Bright, cheerful, and happy colors!! Blessed be Carrie, who gets a peak at everyone's BB first.

    Carrie, when you get my box, you are welcome to repack mine in it or exchange it for a lesser (smaller) box and use it for the larger stack. There will be an 'extra' bit of fabric for you, Carrie, in the box. Postage in the USA will be raising again the 22nd of January.

    Yea!!! Anael is sending us all some new eyeglasses!
    And I do like those fabrics/colours .......... or not!
    Time to sit down for some hot tea ... and get rid of that cold .... or maybe something stronger?

    Awwww QNSue .. you're so sweet yourself and what makes it all FUN!

    My cookies are all baked ... still waiting for the satellite dish guy ... doing some laundry and playing here.
    My eyes are dry, more than normal, so may just go and put some eye drops in and close them to let the eye drops do their thing ....... even though that's not supposed to be necessary, sometimes I do find it helps!

    Mild spring like day here ... and with the sun, it seems even warmer than the 4C on the thermometer.

    Something stronger doesn't work for me, makes me even more sick
    You need new eyeglasses? Or do you want sunglasses? Not all my blocks are the same and I didn't tell if I used the fabric in the picture The glasses match the fabric though

    It was like spring here too but starting tomorrow temperatures will drop below zero. I have enough quilts to keep me warm!
    If I don't forget again I will shop for some ingredients to make cookies. QNS sent me the recipes and I want to bake some! Lately my head is like a sieve, I keep forgetting everything

    Lately .... mines like that all the time! One.Big.Seive!

    Yes new glasses are actually on order for me ... and I have always fun readers in odd colours/designs.
    Though if doing any continuous reading (eg. computer, sewing or even real reading) only my good ones are used (ie expensive prescription ones!). For just quick looks or price tags in stores, I love the fun ones!

    Oh yes, we have spring for a few days and then The Big Chill returns!

    ........ still waiting for satellite dish guy!

    QuiltE...the name if the Bono quilt is Rectangles and I finally found a picture of a finished quilt. It's at this link. https://pamsclub.com/member-quilt-gallery?start=10. Laundry and shopping done today and a whole bunch of 1/2 square triangles but only a fraction of what I need to do. It's rainy and dreary outside. Time to curl up under a quilt for a little while.

    I've had Vitamine C, Vitamine A-Z and Energy tablets to fight my cold, though I doubt if the latter will do me any good as I'm going to bed very soon

    Either that or the energy one will have you so revved that you will not be sleeping!
    Sweet Dreams, Anael!





    Hey ... has anyone seen or heard from our Grand Leader Missy Honchey?

    Soooo ... the question that needs to be answered ... is she in her happy place and sew sew sewing? or did she win BIG time at her 2nd love aka BINGO, which I fear has overcome her 1st of quilting .... and has skipped town with all her moo-lalalal?

    Inquiring minds, want to know!!!

    I wish ya had gone w/me. The fabric I bought for my DNiece's baby blankets was on sale for 3.99 & 5.99 a yard. It looks like it is only 42 " wide though. I bought 6 differen prints & each one will be a baby blanket. I try ta make 'em square. So I guess it will be 41" square. I know for sure about the size after I wash 'em & square 'em up. I'll work on 'em in Brady this weekend. We are gonna go for our anniversary. We will be married 30 years on Mon.

    Dublb, congrats on 30 years of marriage and have fun at the cabin.

    Watching Cooking Channel tonight, and went to the site on internet to find "I want to marry you cookies" wow. Bobby Flay had a 'show-down' with Flour's famous sticky buns....a bit more that grandma's sweet dough cinnamon rolls. I think I gained another 10 pounds watching that show. Oh, and Bobby lost this time. Gotta try that sticky bun recipe sometime. Looked good!!!

    Down loaded three free patterns from Pam Bono site. Hope that I got the right one...???

    QNSue ... Now that sounds like a good name for cookies! Got the link or can you give us the recipe?
    And to think the ones I made today were plain boring chocolate dough with chocolate chips and walnuts!
    When I want them to sound more exciting, I call them Brownie Cookies!

    DulbB ... Congratulations on your 30 years. I'm confused about your fabric ... isn't most only 42" now? And if there's shrinkage? Have fun making your niece's baby blankets in your get away again!

    Most o' what I buy is at least 44". It used ta be 45". A 44" or 43" blanket will be much more convenient than a 40" or 41" one. I guess I'll try ta make the double hem a 1/4" instead o' 1/2". That might help.

    QuiltE, internet site is www.CookingChannel.com, Bobbie Flay's showdown program, look for the sticky buns, then over to the right side are several recipes listed, one of which is the cookie recipe. If you do not find it, let me know and can email it to you, but you should be able to access it.

    Thanks ya'll for all the congratulations. We've been married longer than not. LOL We met when I was 17.5& he was 15 almost 16. We married just after his 20th birthday & 3.5 months before my 22nd birthday. (LOL I just told ya'll how old I am. Oh well.)
    I realize that DH probably won't give me anything this year. He is still sad & has no desire ta go shoppin' w/out me. He has given me some really nice anniversary presents in the past & all I asked for this year is ta be in Brady, on the day. I'm gonna have that. I'll have him all ta myself.

    Did I tell you my BB are all done? I hope to get them to the postoffice today!
    My Bernina was giving me fits! I called the dealer and we figured out what was wrong so now it's working properly again. I'm glad it didn't have to go back. On the positive side: I'm learning to sew 1/4" seams with my Brother

    I will take some more vitamins and my energy tablet LOL It didn't keep me awake last night so I might do that again I feel my head is stuffed with how knows what

    OK finally got these pic sent to me..
    First a little history..
    Molly is a member of our Machine Embroidery Club, having joined shortly after the passing of her DH 2 1/2 years ago. She would sit in the corner and bead or do crazy patch and we always told her she should buy an embroidery machine. Well I think we planted an idea in her head but she couldn't afford a machine so thought she could do the same sort of thing exploring thread art technique with her sewing machine.

    Her first piece was a drawing of a group of Masai warriors and it was stunning,, SO we encouraged her to submit a piece of her work for the BIG Melbourne Quilt Show. Molly being Molly and always doubting herself wasn't happy with her first piece of work so made another and submitted both. They were both accepted into this juried show. She walked away with Viewers Choice for her Emu quilt and an honorable mention for her other work.

    Fast forward 12 months and she is ready to submit another piece of her work into the Sydney Quilt Show. She brought it along today and I must admit that while drooling over this work I got goosebumps.

    She hand dyes all her background fabric, draws a very rough idea of where she wants things and then sits at her sewing machine and creates this art work.

    I hope you enjoy it
