    QuiltE, I sent the block to Dublb...She received it when her Gma wa in the hospital and forgot to post it so I did it for her..
    Here are a couple of photos of what's been going on in my life...The scrappy potholders were created about 5 yrs ago and I put the binding on them last week...Don't make fun of one of my attempts to do FM...they do look funny tho...and if you laugh too much your faces might freeze that way .
    I made the curtains for my bathroom and thought I would hang them higher than pictured but It took up too much window and now I have to shorten them to 18"...


    the sofa was in the family room and is now in the bedroom.. DH wanted to put it out to the curb or try to sell it for $100..I said no way..in the bedroom it goes.. The stationary bike is also a new addition..I bought it from one of the ladies in the village for $30...
    Some 4 patch posies going to be set on point and the cake I baked. it didn't rise very much..I think the pan is too big...It tastes ok..nothing to rave about..maybe some ice cream with it will do the trick.. and last but not least the MB that Carriem sent me..A very different and exceptionally beautiful Dresden Plate block...

    Always good to read/catch up on what everyone's been up to.

    Honchey--I am happy your block arrived before you head back north again. A good friend of mine who has lots of 30s fabrics shared for your block...it was the 1st MB I made.

    You can't see it in the picture, but the white star part is 3-d. The pattern is called Dresden Star, here is a tutorial I just found when looking for a link to the pattern: http://www.magpiequilts.com/2011/07/...ilt-block.html

    I worked today...first time in 6wks. I found the perfect fabrics for sashing and borders for my MBs. I can't wait to put it together. I hope to cut strips and bating this week so I can take it along to my retreat next week. I am going to try Jan's method of QAYG (quilting top and batting together and then adding a whole backing).

    Just catching up after work. So nice to spend time with my friends and enjoy what's going on in your lives. Sounds like most of the health issues have been resolved-yay! Enjoy looking at all the pics. This is a very busy and productive group and oh! so talented.

    Fun MB's showing up. Great job. My last one is hot off the press and going in the mail tomorrow.
    I hate to see all the ice on the trees and bushes--so hard on them, Honchey. Oh I've got some mint chocolate chip ice cream that'll give you cake a zing as some of us huddle around the wood stove. Yup below zero temps again this week. Will it ever end?
    Got a call from DDIL. No baby, but would you like to attach a bowtie to a onesie, a tie to a T shirt and make a jumper for Livvy for family pictures? Of course I said yes and am waiting for the supplies to get them done.
    GGal, DS has had his house on the market since last summer when he realized that he probably won't be coming back to live. Oh the pull of a sweetheart!!!
    I'm off to get projects ready to mail. Night all

    Honchey you made me smile with your beach photo, when we go to the beach we wear bathers not rugged up in winter woollies

    Have cleaned the house today and removed all evidence of the animal quilt, working on getting my Sylvia blocks up to date now, 4 down and 4 to go.

    Have a great day everyone

    Hello All!!!
    grabbing a second to sit down and write! I have missed all of you! SO good to see Honchey

    my internet has been bad again due to wind storm... and what do we do when we have no internets???? we SEW!!! My goal for myself this month was to FINISH projects... which I HAVE but I dont think that it counts when the started projects out number the finished :P

    Also cleaning up outdoors, planning veggie garden space Taking full advantage of the WARM weather because I know it wont last long

    BUSY things to do today, picture day at school for the kids and helping my sister, with babysitting her little one who has flu, while she goes to court. the never ending battle for child support is ridiculous!

    have a GOOD one ladies See you all soon!!!

    DD, nice to see you again!

    MiraB ... whatever happened to your 35 hour days? I can't believe you are behind on anything! Of course, being behind for you probably means not having March (or would it be April's?) BOMs done!!!

    DDamsel ... good strategy, quilt instead of internet! So what was the net count on the WIPs?

    Moi?? ... catching up from the Olympics. I did the minimal WORK during, as I could not watch while be in the office. But I sure could sew and watch!! Trying to get out of WORK mode in late afternoons or at the least in the evenings and head to the sewing room! And that's where I plan to be, tonight!!

    Good to hear from everyone. It seems like we've been very productive during this awful winter. Good news--I'm HOPEFULLY back to working only Mondays. Please keep your fingers crossed! Worked yesterday and there were no traumas, dramas, arrests, etc.----just an average work day. I do have 2 funny stories from 2 of yesterdays patients. Mondays we see people that have been to the Emergency Room over the week-end.

    Patient #1: She was asleep in her bed flat on her back when a raccoon fell out of her ceiling and landed on her chest. She jumped out of bed and ran straight into the door breaking her nose. She did have the presence of mind to close the door so Animal Control officers were able to go get it to test for rabies. As they were heading to her house she told them there were more up there because she's heard them running around for awhile now.

    Patient #2: It's been freezing cold here and his dog pooped on his patio instead of the yard. He decided to get out a golf club and drive the poop off the patio (and probably into his neighbor's yard). As he swung the club, he slipped on the icy patio, the club flew back and broke a window and he fell and broke his wrist. I'm sure there's a moral to this story but I'm not sure what it is.

    One of these days I'm going to write a book! Have a good evening, ladies.

    oooooooooooooooh JanRN .... thanks for this moment of hilarity!!!
    One thing for sure, you CANNOT ever quit working ... you get so many stories.

    And yes, start writing those down ... you could sell it just as jottings in a journal, without a doubt!

    ~~~Giggles~~~ THANKS Jan for the great stories

    QuiltE... I will NEVER tell how many WIP I have! If it is 100, or if 1 it is still far too embarrassing to tell
    I DO keep a list on my desktop, of WIP, needs to be quilted, ready to start, and some day! I think it keeps my brains organized some what.

    Hopefully another nice warm day today! it was 60 yesterday

    Dont even get me started talking olympics! I havent been able to watch as much as I WANT to, but it wont stop me from bragging about our dear athletes!!! .... trying to resist..... unable to resist..... urrrrrgh..... TED LIGHETY!!!!!
    there! now I feel better

    Have a GOOD one ladies!!!

    Honchey....loved the pictures, even the beach in sweatshirts. We would have needed parkas up North to stand by a frozen lake at the same time of the year!
    DD...I enjoy it when you pop in. It sounds like you're feeling pretty good.
    Jan...what a laugh. Thanks.
    Mirabelle...no quilting???for a entire day??? Hope you survived!
    i have the SYE blocks all sashed and ready to begin joining the rows. First I have to take all of the paper off the main blocks. Maybe when I get that all done I will have the pattern for the very last block. I don't anticipate ever doing another entire quilt using PP but I love how this one is coming together. Have a good day everyone!

    So anxious to see you SYE, GGal. Have you posted it on the SYE threads? I haven't been keeping up on those. So patient of you to now have to spend time all that time tearing.
    Ted Lighety--who's he? Just teasing DDamsel! When I heard he was from your home state, I thought of you immediately! Oh to have 60; we're in the deep freeze again and looks like another 7-10 days of it. It'll be a slow snow melt at this rate.
    I'll buy your book, Jan! Thanks for allowing us to see a whole new world!
    mirabelle, glad to hear you got the evidence cleaned up before DH arrived home! He'll love it.
    Yup, QE, another job on my resume (OKSGlad ... Good Ol' Mom is now Real Estate Mom! ) Now today was HR director as I weave my way through final health care papers and filling out forms for truck on USDOT carrier website. I just love all these laws and regulations I have to keep up with--not!
    Working on mini designs. Have border to put on one mini, then work on another. 8yo GD wants the dolly quilt as she has fabric "paper" dolls I gave to her as a BD gift years ago. The 5 yo fondles it and says, "It's so cuuute"!

    Have a good night. Still in the deep freeze here. I don't believe your graphic Anael!

    I finished the sm walhangin' that is my FFC & am so very unhappy w/it. The borders are all wavy! I think when I handquilted around the borders (SITD) I pulled the stitches too tight.
    I go ta the Dr tamarrow ta find out why my lower side (close ta my ovary) is hurtin'. It only hurts sometimes, but each time is worse than the last time. Friday was the last time I hurt.

    OK...it will be a week or so. I have one block to make and the pattern hasn't been posted yet. Meanwhile, I will depaper and sew some of the rows together.
    Windy and cold this morning even with the sun shining. I plan to have lunch with my QBs and need some fabric for finishing the SYE so will stop at the LQS. They will have all FQs on sale for $2 next Tuesdsy....fat Tuesday...last day of Marti Gra...and I will be checking out what might be available. Stay warm and save....

    *gasp* a day without sewing for MiraB ... unbelievable!

    DDamsel ... yeaaaaaaa for your local guy! Enjoy your heat! I remember last March you were out in your sundress and we were shivering away!!!

    GGal ... It just doesn't seem like any work at all, when I take it off the paper as I go. I am SO looking forward to seeing yours all together. Maybe a peak of the partial? What a great sale idea ... Fat Tuesday!

    OKSGlad ... all the more reason to KEEP that paper dolly quilt for yourself, so the Grands can enjoy it when they come to visit. Has REMom been successful? Hope you got that USDOT redtape dealt with ... I don't miss all the redtape of farming one iota!

    DublB ... look forward to seeing your FFC. Good Luck tomorrow.

    OK guys I had a busy day. First I went ta the DR. As I was gittin' outta the truck ta walk in I looked at my phone & I was 4 min.s late. I was walkin' very fast while tryin' ta hook my keys ta my purse. I stepped up at the first step. I thought the second step was about 5' from the first step, but it's only 3' from it. Yep, ya got the pict. I walked right inta that second step & fell forward. My knees are pretty bruised up & my right wrist hurts. It hurts in the same tendons that I have fought tenosynovitis for years. I took asprin for it earlier taday & have ice on it now.
    When I got in ta see the
    Dr he said that there isn't anything really wrong w/me. No kidney stones, no diverticulitis, the 1 sm cyst shouldn't 'cause that kinda pain. He does want me ta come back in May for another sonogram (ta check out the cyst) & wants me ta have a colonoscopy ta rule out polyps. I do have another disk that has "protrusions" & that might explain this. (He looked back at my old MRI.)
    After I saw the Dr I went ta an estate sale. I didn't git ta go all o' the way through as DH called & said that he was home a few min.s early for lunch & he wanted ta go somewhere. We went ta the Golden Buffet.
    After lunch I kinda took it easy for an hour then went & picked up my Apprentice & her toddler. She is back in town till Sat. We went ta the Stitchin'post. It's a very nice needlepoint store. I didn't know what kinda store it was. They have a bunch o' Vera Bradly stuff. My apprentice went all ga-ga for it! I wish I had all the $ in the world, so I could afford ta buy some o' that for her. Wow the prices were high! We could have stayed there all day! I had hoped that they'd have some ribbon embroidery books, but I didn't see any. I did buy some Thread Heaven & a cross stitch pattern.

    Dubib....what a day! Glad that the Dr. gave you a report that can ease your mind somewhat. Sorry you fell down but you could have run into a light post while looking at your phone and gotten a black eye. I know one lady that still has only a land line with an answering machine. Isn't it funny how we've become so tied to our cell phones?
    QuiltE....patience my friend. No sneak previews.
    Great lunch yesterday with QBs. We have a couple of FARTS on the calendar for March and April. Stopped at the LQS and got what I needed to finish the SYE quilt and some fabric for backing on my DGS's quilt.
    Boosters....I've ticked off everything for February goals except regularly practicing FMQing. I did try, blocks went okay but there is not enough room to the left of my machine to accommodate even a baby quilt....I tried. Have to come up with a better room arrangement. March goals taking shape and will be posted this weekend. This process has really helped me! I'm down to 4 UFO's...flimsies don't count in my sewing room...
    Warmer today, enjoying the sunshine but preparing for Titan this weekend. Hope you're safe, Jeanie. It sure doesn't sound good in California right now.

    Yeah, we finally have gotten some rain! We got 3" in the last two days. What a blessing!

    I've been working on my 50 Stars, still behind! I've been keeping the information on the Spike Your English blocks, but they are put on the back burner for now. I need to go shopping for some more fabric for two more borders on my Celtic Solstice, then I will have my flimsy finished. It is very colorful! I've also been working on the scraps that my friend gave me. Got the two bags full, down to one. I don't often get in the "mood" to cut, so take advantage of it when the mood strikes. My strip bins are overflowing!


    Our local Community College Basketball Teams are doing well. The women are rated #1 in Southern CA section, AND #1 in the State, they have their first playoff game at home on Saturday. The men won their first playoff game last Wednesday, Joe and I went down to watch. What fun! We go to all the games we can during the season.

    I have been in the quilt room trying to get Feb Stars done, so I can get the SYEs done, so I can get back to Sylvia, and Dear Jane...but the month of February ends today and here's progress:Name:  1-DSCN0141.JPG

Size:  150.0 KB What is said about a half of a worm vs. whole worm in the apple and which would you rather have???...so I posted the whole and the half that is done.

    Love your square, GG. and your posted SYE. So glad you are moving along on that trail and wish I were there too.

    Jeanie, I did notice the news the first inch of rain in LA country with over 100 accidents in that county alone and all the flooding from the rain. And mud slides occurring, so stay safe.
