    JanRN, the lady we knew in Texas loved flamingos and put them the length of her driveway on each side. They disappeared while she was gone to work one day. But as she walked the area, she found a driveway decorated with pink flamingos; so she took a closer look. They all had her name on the inside of them, so she started pulling up all the flamingos. Lady of the house came out and said, "What are you doing? I am calling the police!" "Go ahead", said the lady we knew. "They all have my name on the inside of them." "I should have known when my son gave them to me!" said the lady of the house, "Go ahead and take them!" And the lady went back into her house.

    Thanks for the soup recipe. Sounds easy and quick to make, I will have to try that and see if I can do it.

    I hope this works as the file was taken from a cd, this was the kaleidoscope quilt I made for DH 10 years ago, it was originally motorcycle fabric and the pattern came from Bethany Reynolds Stack n Whack book

    MiraB and DD ........ Gorgeous fabric!! It is going to make for a beautiful quilt. I know you will go way beyond the basic layout we have seen already. Do you have enough of the stripe print to use as is for your borders? Your husband's motorcycle kaleido turned out really well. So what are you going to do for him now? A fish kaleido?

    GrannyQ and JanRN ... Gorgeous block too ... watch out, or MiraB will be stealing this to go with her SAW!

    GrannyQ ... so glad to know that your husband has done better with this round of chemo. Let's hope it keeps going that way.

    QNSue ... always enjoy seeing that flamingo kaleido!

    JanRN ... You had me laughing with your flamingo story! No doubt a lot of fun and anticipation in wondering where it would show up next! Maybe you should get a new one for this summer and see how long it stays in your front yard? mmmmmmmmm soup! Thank you for the recipe. I'll be brewing this one up soon!

    What fun we have here with all the stories. I am laughing at Jan's story too.

    I love all the Stack N Whack quilts being shown. I thought they were so neat, so I bought the book. I always Ohhh and Awwww at them, but never made one myself!

    Thanks for the soup recipe Jan, it looks delicious!

    GrannyQ - I hope your husband continues to do well with his chemo. You guys will remain in my prayers!

    Great pictures and stories. I too have made a few kaleidoscope quilts. The rose one was my 3rd quilt. It uses a free pattern online called Spin Cycle (from Blank Quilting). I looked for the link and it isn't online anymore so I attached the pdf...no ruler needed, you just cut a square, then cut that in have and cut a little triangle off one corner to make a "kite" shape. Goes together pretty quick.

    I have one other quilt started with the Spin Cycle pattern. It was on my list for last year to finish, but my shoulder slowed me down...maybe this year.

    The other one is a faux kaleidoscope...Jelly Girl using a jelly roll.

    The second quilt I made was a stack and whack and wound up making 3 of them right off the bat. Two were gifts.
    GrannyQ....so good to hear from you and that DH is doing better with this round of therapy. Love your blocks all together.
    JanRN...my son put pink flamingos on his front lawn to announce the birth of his daughter. IRL they are very striking birds.
    Have a great day everyone. Looks to be bright and beautiful although cold here.

    GrannyQ, prayers are still coming for you and your dh; may the treatments work this time and you can enjoy life again.

    Have a good one, everyone...celebrate the day.

    Lots of activity here this week...all it took was one photo...Great photos of the quilts.. interesting technique for the kite kaleidoscope carriem...Alot easier than cutting triangles!! I stack & pin all layers before cutting not one at a time...that would drive me nuts....
    The machine is finally in the house and it's so cute...

    I also prepped another piece of fabric for a 4 patch posie...you'll have to wait until I get to NC to see how they turn out.

    The soup is on my list Jan...I've never done soup in the crock pot.. a question...anyone here ever made a casserole of smoked ham, potatoes & onions...I had it as a kid years ago and don't know how to go about it...it was creamy,& had chunks of the ham & potatoes...everytime I have made scalloped potatoes the flour & milk,butter is lumpy & is stuck to the potatoes..Help!

    Have a great day everyone!!!

    here's the photos...

    Beautiful kaleidoscopes, Carrie & Mirab. Love the different blocks that magically appear. MrJanRn would have loved that motorcycle one to death, too.

    Anne, neat little machine. Have you tried it out yet? I have a question for you about my Viking. All the instructions say DO NOT OIL. But on another QB thread someone posted that you have to oil the bobbin area. Yes or no? I've never done it, take my machine every 3 yrs for its check-up and haven't had a problem. Am I doing something wrong? (Remember, I come from the sewing era when the teacher kept saying "don't touch your knobs" meaning don't touch the thread or bobbin adjustment tension knobs--we always got a laugh out of that). With the Sweet 16 you oil the bobbin race each time you sew but I've never oiled my Viking.

    No recipe for your casserole, Anne, hope someone has it. I'd like to try it; I have a frozen ham bone for soup and left over Christmas ham pieces in the freezer and this sounds like a good way to use them.

    Between the lovely quilt photos and the "virtual" smell of good food cooking I am so jealous. Love the stories as well. I've been keeping up on the thread, but life is just not cooperating in affording me free time and when I do I'm beat so naps are good!

    I'm still tied to the desk like Bob C, but have snuck away a couple of times. I've just realized that next Saturday is the kids' lasagna supper that I make 3 small quilts for--none started. Yikes. Last night whipped a 17" wall hanging together and have a UFO that I'm going to revitalize for a table runner. For the third one I want to make a folk art bunny hanging--working on the pattern for that one. Once I get the last two pieced I will quilt all three and bind. I have two GDF birthdays this month too. And a mystery block to make. Then horror of horrors, when I made my mystery block for quilt guild, I found my December block under all the sewing mess. So if "someone" is missing a December block expect it to go out in the mail this week. Mea culpa, mea culpa.

    Speaking of mystery blocks. I received a lovely star block from GrannyQ this past week. Thanks so much. Prayers out to you and your DH as you continue the dealing with your treatments

    I've always said getting dizzy is a little kid's first "high". 4 yo GS spun around and around until he fell to the floor, looks up at me and says, "I upside down!" That was before he "waxed" my bedroom floor with hand lotion. He thought he was helping Gram. Not a happy Gram that day.

    Back to putting side zippers in DS's overall's. It's to be -zero again Tuesday, so Mom would you have them done by then. He's been without them for a week already. Not my idea of fun time @ !

    Jan, after you totally empty the bobbin area manually , take a Q-tip that you have placed a DROP of SEWING machine oil on just swap the very center of the bottom of the bobbin area...do this after you have cleaned that area really well..vacuum it out if you have a nozzle small enough..do not blow into it with your breath...that just pushes the fine dust into the crevices...

    Today,
    If a machine comes with oil when you first purchase it ..it needs to be oiled..If it didn't..you don't need to..

    I checked it out the minute I saw it in the storeroom of the gallery...It sews beautifully..I do need to clean out the whole bobbin/needlebar area..This machine will go down south next time ...

    Hey ya'll I'm back from Brady! I just spent an hour readin' the 10 pages that I was behind on. Ya'll make me smile! I really enjoyed all the picts. I have some fabric that I bought...hmmm...I think bout 3 years ago...for a OBW but when it came in it only has 4 repeats. I do plan on doin' a 4PP but have way too many UFO's ta even consider it for a while.
    I had a great time in Brady! We did install a few blinds & I hung some curtains in my bedroom. I don't like 'em there, so will pick up a different pair next time I'm there. Maybe I'll figure out where ta put the pair I have later, just not in my bedroom. DH fixed the downstairs toilet, & cut up a ton o' firewood so that when I go by myself I'll have plenty. We watched several movies that we haven't seen yet & I experimented w/Inktense fabric pencils & blocks. (It's a kind o' fabric paint.)

    JeanieG ... oh just go for it and start a SAW!

    CarrieM ... great Kaleidos!

    GGal ... so good to see you!! Would love to see your Kaleido quilts. Have any pics to show us?

    Honchey ... looks like a pretty sweet machine! Love your fabric for your next 4PP .... or what about doing a OBW? For your casserole, I would just make scalloped potatoes and add in the ham (along with some onions!). Are you making your sauce first? or just layering in the butter, flour and seasonings and then pouring milk over top? That's the way my Mom made it, and never had the flour pockets, but I never could. So instead I make the a white sauce and then just pour it on already thickened.

    OKSGlad ... what a whirlwind of activity! OOPS re charity quilts ... better you remembered them this weekend instead of midweek! How soon will Bob Cratchit be unemployed?


    Hope everyone had a good weekend ... I did!

    Met friends at a restaurant last night for supper, and en route was able to stop by an LQS that I seldom visit. They were celebrating the lights being back on with a 30% off everything in the store sale! So a mini-FART and got 2 cans 505 and a small packet of the Clover Clips. And .......... those double pointed needles I had been looking forward. OK, some fabric too which included a piece of the material I was wanting to use for my D4P backing, but was fearful I had enough!

    Some sewing yesterday ..... and a good day of it today. A lot of time spent on matching the seams of this backing fabric. The tulips are each about two inches across. Insanity ... but I got it done! ONe seam is the full length of the quilt (vertical in the middle of the pic) and a seam about 1/2 way down the right panel. Unfortunately, the marking line is still showing in this pic. Matched?

    So that has me on track for completing my January goals ... still some to do, but we still have twelve days to go!

    How's everyone coming with their January To Do's???

    No progress here...yet. Maybe by Thursday I will feel like it *and* have the time! My goal has changed to sewing something...not sure I will be able to do any pp'ing this month. My elbow continues to feel better each day, just not 100% yet.

    Don't do anything to hurt yourself Carriem..you don't want to undo the progress of healing...

    I'm so busy I don't know what I'm doing...With the 3 clippers coming my way I may not be able to fly on Wednesday!!! Ugh!

    Everyone who stopped by this morning, "Hi!" even if you did not say anything, just lurking as your drank your morning coffee. Carrie, take it easy, and give it time to heal properly...Honchey, the weather is going to do its thing no matter what we say. Love your new little sewing machine, looks very nice.

    QuiltE, when are you starting the Dear Jane thread? Love the tulips, and my eye does not see any seam on the backing. Progress is slow, but slowly moving here on January to do list. Finishing last half of second SYE for January... then back on 50 Fab Stars for Arizona and Arkansas.

    If the eyes will focus, they are very blurry this morning. Took an Arthritis Pain Relief pill last night to sleep without pain, and it seems to affect the muscles in the eyes also...if it ain't one thing it is another. All sums up to getting older, but if you ask, I will deny it.

    Look what the postie just delivered, a beautiful block from Carriem, thank you so much it is beautiful, I love it
    Took a pic of all of them together and don't they play nice together. I'm a happy little camper...

    Honchey such a cute machine I am sure you will have fun with it.

    QuiltE I don't think anyone answered you regarding the IDT on the Pfaff, can't remember what it means and too lazy to look up my book but it is the built in walking foot feature. Great job on piecing your backing fabric

    Anael such a beautiful photo of you and Bram and Isa, so precious

    NinaSue you are young at heart

    Have to run lots to do today and it is hot already,

    Now that I have gotten off my patootie, QuiltE the IDT stands for Integrated Dual Feed, according to my manual it feeds the fabric from the top and bottom at the same time. The IDT keeps all layers of quilt projects aligned to prevent shifting of the top layers. phew

    Now that my men have left me alone I can get on with some interesting stuff, like sewing DS was over and needed some help and DH, well he was just being a pain

    Carriem I forgot to thank you for the extra fabric you included, so sweet of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
