    Hey it's warming up a bit here--just above freezing!
    Four small quilts for church charity--check. They all have high loft batting so are really cushy. A big thanks again for the flathead pins, QNS. They worked great holding the self binding in place as I sewed them down.
    Now back to some mini's.

    You are most welcome, OksewGlad, for the pins. I looked at them long and hard and thought "Quilters can always use pins"....so I put them back for the quilters I knew. I think its great what you are doing for others; as many on this site do for others also....desire a big hug...so a {[(Hug)]} for those who so generously donate to the worthwhile causes.

    Anael....great picture of the Grands! What a difference a year makes, huh?
    Mirabelle...beautiful block. Will nicely show off on the new stand.
    DD...enjoy your sister time.
    Goals are good for me. I would have forgotten the borders for Ocean Waves if I hadn't written it down. Got them all cut today and I like how they are turning out.

    Oh my gosh, you guys have been really chatty the last few days. I have been reading all my threads for over an hour! We just got home from our Rally with our RV group. We had wonderful weather - mid 70's all week - such luck for a February trip, when we never know what to expect in the way of weather! I have to finish up my last MB and get it in the mail. I'll do that tomorrow! Wouldn't you know it - the block did not match up in the middle like it was suppose too, have to take it apart and re-do it! Darn!

    Great blocks everyone, and Anael - those photos of the SewGrands are wonderful. Such happy looking babies!

    Just catching up with everyone...lots going on. Good to hear from so many the last few days. I am thankful for a little warmer weather today. Even got to the clubhouse for a little bit to do some straightening up. I will have time to sew tomorrow afternoon.

    I got my new laptop and am getting things set up, installed, etc. I was able to get the Mac downloads from quilt-pro, which is really good since I don't have all of my 50 stars printed out yet and the one PC we still have won't work with our printer! My only quilt program I haven't tried to install yet is the EQ Dear Jane one...I know it is for Windows OS, so need to install another program to run it through or something like that. I am not ready to use it just yet and will get to it later. I figure I'll learn the new computer first!

    QNS I am glad you got the e-mail ---eventually ---- maybe cyber space was taking a day off

    DDamsel I hope you enjoy the Paleo Diet, I have been doing something very similar for the past 3 months and have lost 9.5 kilos or 20 lbs. I do attend the Weight Watchers meetings but don't follow their guidelines, I go more for the weekly weigh-in. It is not easy giving up bread and pasta but after a while you don't miss it.

    GGal I love your block, the fabric is perfect and look at those points, wow and its a star, my favourite blocks

    Bev do take care, even if you are feeling better.

    JeanieG and Carriem - nice to hear from both of you

    I have spent the day at patchwork, left home at 7am, got there at 8.30 cause I had to hit all the morning commuter traffic and all I managed to sew all day was one star block. Got home around 4.30 this afternoon and now I am tired and ready for bed. So I will catch you all tomorrow.
    Have a good evening/morning/afternoon where ever you are

    We have new snow this morning....just when the ground was peaking through on the place...it really covered it up again. Sigh. Well, its not Spring yet. Dh off to the dentist this morning for the last of the gum work. Yes, he drove the 4 x 4.

    You all take care and stay safe.

    Good morning, everyone. I've been reading for the past hour and catching up on all the posts. What a wonderful way to start the day. I feel like I've been to breakfast with all my good friends. I'm glad everyone is doing well and oh, so busy. Lots of pics & news to catch up on.

    It's Friday morning and I am NOT working--Yay!! We hired (another) new girl; actually she worked there before so needed very little training. Work has actually been boring (read normal LOL) without addicts, strippers, and baby mama dramas. Keep your fingers crossed that this one works out and I can continue just working on Mondays only.

    It's snowing here again so this is a good day to stay in and get caught up on chores and then hopefully get to the Bat Cave. Gosh, I miss sewing everyday! Stay warm & do something you love today--after all, it's Valentine's Day.

    OMG QNS - those cookies look marvelous. I've never seen a chocolate chip recipe like that one. Can't believe you have to refrigerate it for 36 hours! Weird! I did copy it into Living Cookbook. I also got hung up on the Chicken site! How I loved my chickens when I raised them. Most of mine were Rhode Island Reds. However, we did have a couple of Aracanas, which laid the colored eggs. How fun that was for our kids! There were incubated in one of my children's classrooms.

    Anael - that sweater is amazing! All the cable stitching - WOW! I think I've only tried that once or twice, when I first learned to knit. You indeed are a talented knitter, as well as quilter!

    Yes ... from one UFO and onto another!

    I'm OK if I end up with finished tops .... the decisions are all made and the sewing done. Except of course, for the quilting. When I get them this far, the binding is ready too. I have not done that yet either, as I have not decided whether it will be the same as the Valentine print? or to use a plain black? Once I have the backing bought, I will make that decision and have the binding ready, for when that time comes. Then all any leftover fabrics can snuggle back into the stash with their buddies!

    So with my January Booster Club goals ... I now have four quilt tops in the stable.
    February is to have one of them sandwiched and the quilting started.

    Anael--beautiful sweater...I wish you lived closer and could teach me to do that!

    QE--very nice finishes. Maybe for the last heart you can make your February block (like you did the snowflake for Jan)?

    Day

    This one I tried ta use perment felt pens. They were great till I added the Inktense. The Inktense is mixed w/Aloe Vera gel. The gel made the dry (& already heat set) ink bleed. It blead more everytime I washed it. I didn't send it in.
    It's also a day picture.

    I'm really not happy w/this layout though. It's gonna have too much muslin in the middle. Even makin' 3 more blocks ta add ta the bottom isn't gonna make up for the empty middle. I'll play w/'em some more till I git it right.

    Anael I love your cardigan, wish I lived in a colder climate I would join you in knitting wonderful creations..

    Bev what a beautiful group of wallhangings, and a sweet DH buying you roses, I can smell them from here...
    Love all your blocks laid out, it will be a wonderful memory quilt for you to snuggle under.

    This is what I have been working on for the past week, still have a few more blocks to sew together for a couple more rows, then back to piecing these little 3 inch blocks, its not making a dent in the scraps. I am sure they breed at night I am only working on a quarter of the quilt, don't know what size it will end up that depends on the scrap supply and how long it takes me to get sick of doing it

    Mirabelle, you can knit a cotton cardigan. In winter it might be chilly where you live? I love your Geese project! I guess I have to send my scraps to you so they can learn how to breed

    Bev, great wallhangings and wonderful roses! The empty middle is a FMQ challenge
