    DDamsel ... that is a funny one! You could have fun with it by choosing really wild fabrics to go with it. I noticed the blog is from a Guild but didn't see a location. Is this your local Guild?

    OKSGlad ... your sister is quite talented. Looks like you have to go east again, to help her with the next show!

    JanRN ... I have a Fiskars Rotary Cutter that's ergonomic and it's about 20 yrs old. The first one I bought when I first made a quilt the LQS recommended it for the comfort. Loved it so much, when I saw the same one a few years ago, I bought a second! I do have one of the yellow ones (Olfa, right?) but it sits in a drawer as whenever I used it, it just was so uncomfortable. So, I guess it is like stuff in our Junk Drawers ... just sitting there, in case I should ever need it!

    MiraB ...
    glad you ID'd QNSue's block, so the credit for such a lovely block can duly be directed to you!

    Sorry, Mirabelle, I will put your name on it and know; wonder whom I am missing blocks from???? I do keep them all together...in fact, when I went back to check for QuiltE's, it was laying on top of the pile in plain sight.

    Jan RN, ergonomic rotary cutter is what I have, a bright red one. I first ordered a blue one 'cause of the color, but it was for left handed persons, not right handed, so I gave it to my bf. It does help some(when I remember to use it!)

    DH got the canning pantry shelves finished today. And jars back on the shelf; looks neat. More ripping for me tomorrow will measure a bit more on each side to get it right...I hope.

    QNS,

    When I look at your group of MBs, I don't see "lost and found".

    you do have a really nice batch of blocks there. Loved Murphy the frog

    Oh, no, I love that 'Lost and Found!" Will try to take another picture...I think they are all there; and post it if I have eleven blocks.

    And still waiting on mine, QNS.
    Love in a Mist quilts are so lovely. Glad you found the glitch, Nina Sue, but you know the course of true love never runs smooth!
    Update on the auction tonight--3 quilts netted $275 for the school. Felt really good about it. One of the gals who bought last year saw me waiting in line to eat and asked--"did you make any more this year?" And yes she bought. Looks like I have a repeat buyer! The ShooFly was also bought by a repeat buyer. Just may make a itty bitty one next year to see how it will sell. Can't you see one made in red and white with hearts for Valentine's Day?--HMMM thinking, but have other things a calling right now.
    Have a good night dear friends, rest the weary and aching bones and joints, and depending on which side of the Siberian clipper you are on--stay warm! We are supposed to get a little bit of snow with this one so will have a blizzard as well.

    Jan, I use an Olfa Ergonomic Rotary Cutter (yellow). I've had it for years and that is all I use for most of my cutting. I have a little Olfa 28mm cutter, which is the first one I bought back in the late 70's when I started quilting. I use it for PP. I keep it right next to my sewing machine with a 12" rotating rotary cutting mat.

    Thanks QE. Prices were about the same.

    One of the perks of my redo is I can put my design wall up on the east exterior wall. Great place as there is no sun to shine on my WIP's. Took time tonight to get a picture of GrannyQ's block to me and a group picture. With a little shuffling of lights and darks these are going to look fantastic. Thanks everyone for your beautiful work.Name:  from GrannyQ.jpg

    Goodmorning Ladies!!!

    THANKS for the talk on rotary cutters... I have been looking for one myself, one that clicks shut on its own. I bought one before but dont like it. so info is GOOD, I will have to go get me one

    OOPS quilt... digging into the closet yesterday I have ALL picked out fabrics for it!

    OOOooohhh PRETTY blocks Ninasue and OK
    Some Ladies have more mystery blocks than others... I also have 10, with Jan and Feb left to go. I lost track if everyone received for Nov and Dec?

    GOOD NEWS the school finally agreed to the kids riding the bus! we have to take them 2 miles to bus stop, but it is a BLESSING for sure

    Have a good one ladies!!!

    QNS & OK....what a lovely set of blocks! I mailed my Jan Mystery Block Friday. I was looking for a empty project box that day and happened to dig out the Bonus Blocks which haven't been touched and my pineapple blocks were on the counter looking for a place to go and so I put them together on my design wall and ...... I have a new quilt ready to put together as soon as the February block comes. It is a very personal, special lapsize, only for me quilt that I will treasure! I won't post pictures until I get it to the flimsy stage but would challenge any of you that haven't done anything with their Bonus Blocks to consider marrying them up with the mystery blocks.
    Windy and more snow today before the temperature plunges tomorrow. So thankful for warmth and shelter. Have a great day, everyone!

    More chatter, I love it. More, more!!

    OK, what a beautiful array of blue MBs..love everyone of them.

    Good to hear from D_D, too.

    GG is right, todaiy will be wonderful, tomorrow nature reminds us its winter time...if it runs in cycles, next year will not be as cold...we hope. Or set any records that Quilte quoted for this year. Maybe the Ground Hog will not see his shadow on the 2nd.

    And now you all know that I blame Murphy the Frog for all the ripping I have to do...which is were I am headed now...you'all have a 'ripping good day!

    GrannyQ and OKSGlad ... What a nice addition to the block family!

    OKSGlad ... With the final MB in February, you'll have 13, so won't work. Take mine out as it is too dark with the rest. Without it, you have a grand set to finish off. No offense ... and you can do something else sometime with that one. I'm sure your school is very appreciative of your substantial donations. Probably a lot more than many others!

    DDamsel ... Thank goodness for you finally getting the kids on the bus! Two miles is better than how many? Will be fun to see your OOPS come together! Nov/Dec MBs ... I also wonder if everyone received theirs or not?

    GGal ... what a great idea, to combine your BBs and MBs ... you must have a very large lapsize though, with all those! How did your at-home play day go? Did you see some progress? Do you and your QB ever sew together in each other's homes? or just do your FARTs and classes together?

    QNSue ... oh dear, please do not wish us a "rippin' good day" ... never want reverse stitching! Maybe put Murphy out in a snowbank to chill off??

    Likewise, I am heading off to enjoy the afternoon away.
    You already know where that is!!!
    Meanwhile my cauldron bubbles and boils away giving off such nice smells!!!!

    Hey ya'll! I did resubscribe taday, like Sue recommended. Taday will let me know if that works!
    Yesterday I used Inktense & painted 2 blocks for the cancer quilt. On another one I used some colored permanent markers & then the Inktense. Well that didn't work. So I'll redo that block.

    Rip not as in ripping, but a good rip-roaring, energetic, delightful day. So glad it worked for you Dublb.

    Off to unload feed into cans for the chickens. Almost done ripping....almost! I may have to show you M.Murphy in a snow bank....when we get another one.!

    Well, I also have Instant messaging and I did not get any QB messages today! Wow, I usually get messages from four or five topics that I have subscribed to. I guess dublb and I have the same problem going on!

    I didn't get any messages yesterday, but got a lot this morning (lots of duplicates). I am guessing there was an issue on the board. FYI if you are subscribed but not getting the emails, log into the board and then click on "Settings" at the top of any page. That will show you the threads that have new messages.

    Wow....did the wind ever roar last night! It got up to about 45 yesterday and melted a lot of snow...gusty winds....but last night after dark the temps started to drop and the wind picked up to a steady pace and made such a noise. DH kept hearing unusual noises outside and finally got up about midnight to look and the big garbage container supplied by the company was being blown down the street!!! We set it in a protected corner by out front stairs too. He bundled up a brought it back but there were so many other bumps in the night that neither of us slept very sound. I can only imagine how it must have been for OK and Carrie if they had snow with the wind. Jan, QuiltE, and Honchey...this is coming your way and I promise you...I didn't send it.
    QuiltE...I like a lap quilt that tucks in around the edges...this one will be about 50x60... Long enough to keep my toes warm. I need a little more fabric for the extra pinwheels/ sashing but it will wait until a better day for travel. OK must have two from someone. There are 13 in the exchange if we count ourselves.
    QNSue...Murphy does help me if I get something out of whack. I don't like his visits but he is a helpful friend.
    Janie...by this point in your life, you know what it takes to get to the other side of depression so I won't offer any suggestions. I've been fortunate enough to stay free from that oppression so anything I say would be hearsay anyway. Just take good care of yourself.
    DD...do the kids like riding the bus? It sure makes it easier for the family that they can.
    Dubib...sounds like you have some interesting stuff going on. I might use some paint to embellish my appliqué. Thanks for the idea.
    last week of the month and the only goal I'm not meeting so far is FMQ....go figure huh....and my bonus blocks are much farther along than anticipated! Stay safe and warm everyone....Mirabelle and Jeanie...stay cool.

    Yes, the wind blew here last night, too, and its zero this morning, quite different from the 46 degree weather of yesterday.

    I was ripping out all the mistakes and found the triangle that was cut too large that caused the problems...so I used 'Best Press' and put the triangles all back together and had it looking so nice...and went to 'fit' it back on the the main piece..and discovered I had inserted every Ohio Star tip upside down! Corrected two last night, and will correct the other two this morning. Laying it out on the guest bed, so I can see those 'mistakes' before putting all back together. So, we will see how much I can do today toward finishing the Irish Mist.

    I just have the 10 MBs and feel like maybe I am missing December's....not sure. Waiting email reply from Honchey on that subject; she must be very busy as no answer over the weekend. Everyone celebrate the day...find a way to make it a special day.

    Early this afternoon the weather was nice, the sun was shining so I went for a ride on my bike. I went here to take some pictures:

    It's an over 650 years old watermill, still producing linseed oil! As you can see no more sunshine so I went home again.

    What a beautiful picture and history story! Love it. I think that picture would make a good puzzle. Have you thought about selling some of your photos to dealers? I love to see beautiful pictures 'cause that is the only way I can travel to wonderful places.

    Some more history

    In 1796 this house was initiated as Roman Catholic rectory and 'house church'. From about 1580 till about 1850 in the Northern part of The Netherlands it was forbidden to 'be' Roman Catholic and to go to church. So they had to go to church in secret and one of the places they went was this house.

    I wonder if the hedge covered the front part of the house back then..and if there were more trees to block the view... wonderful to know the history and see the house. Another great photograph that makes feel like we are there. Thanks for sharing.

    Anael ... oh to see green grass! Thanks for the pics and historical info for both. Nice to see the mill still in operation, would it always have been for linseed oil? Is the House Church still used as such? I always smile ... our "old" is relatively "new" from your perspective!

    GGal ... Yes, we have had the winds ......you did not send it to us ... you did not send ... you did not send!

    Honchey???? ... Perhaps we have not heard from her, as she she is enjoying her long awaited southern exposure? and out on the beaches?
